What the Mobile Studio Could Do for You

So, what’s the purpose of a mobile studio anyhow? Is it merely a huge ego-boosting vehicle on wheels that celebrates Unique Squared and its awesomeness? Well, yes – but it’s so much more than that. I’ve watched this thing grow from just a baby (a rented RV) into a full grown behemoth; this is an actual studio. You couldn’t fit the London Philharmonic in there before, but now this is a full-blown studio on wheels.

I still didn’t answer the question, though, “what’s the purpose?” Well, here’s the first clue – it’s a mobile studio. So, in essence, this will be a mobile way for Unique Squared to tour the US and record music. Then, for you, this means you’ll have a new outlet for discovering new music.

Let’s pick just one genre – hip hop. Now, this bus will afford them folks at Unique Squared the ability …

M-Audio Venom Review. WA-TA!!!

I remember my first synthesizer experience.  It was a Korg Poly-Six and it actually belonged to my older brother Michael. He would play Steel Breeze, The Tubes, and Duran Duran licks because they actually had keyboard solos in the 80′s. I never really asked questions about what he was doing when he was changing filters and oscillators. I just knew it sounded rad and I wanted to play, too. Then he did something that I will never forget. He used an arpeggio for the beginning of Hungry Like The Wolf by Duran Duran and it changed my life.  From that point forward I was hooked on analog synthesis.

There are a number of classic vintage synths that define the evolution of electronic music for sure. M-Audio sampled the best of the best, added Avid’s top notch DSP, audio effects, packaged all in a sleek, post-modern, performance inspiring 49 key contoller.…

M-Audio VENOM at Winter NAMM 2011

I used to work at Harris Music and Sound in Pensacola, Florida about 11 years ago and I remember once explaining MIDI to an older gentleman who wanted his keyboard to “talk” to his drum machine.  I was showing him a product by a company called Midiman that had multiple midi ins and outs and I explained to him that this little box was only the beginning of what was to come. I embraced technology (being into dance music) because this was the culture. Midiman became M-Audio and I had every controller they put out. I wanted a Midi out in my neck so I could control synths with my vocal because I wanted to be a robot. I probably still do. Anyway, M-Audio released their first ever programmable super synth called the M-Audio Venom. The Crystal Method said this keyboard changed their life. We caught up with Taiho at …

Control Your Music – How to pick a controller

Back in the olden days there weren’t even faders; there were only knobs. You recorded to tape and turned a knob for everything. Thanks to a brilliant fellow by the name of Tom Dowd, we now assume that when you mean to increase or decrease the volume of a track, you grab a fader. The linear fader allowed Tom (best known for his Ray Charles production work) to control numerous channels simultaneously as he could have his fingers on may channels at once. It’s a faster way to work as well.

Today we get used to working with a mouse and qwerty keyboard for so much. Once many of us made (make) the transition from an analog mixer to just a mouse we think life becomes easier. Many a musician has decided to get rid of the analog mixer and increasingly go virtual – away from a world of wires. …
