For a long time my Ambika was sitting on my desk, naked. Partly because it’s handy when you
want to change something, learn about the circuit, probe it with the scope, etc …
Also because I thought of designing my own sheet metal case at some point. But that turned out
to be so expensive for just a one-off it never happened. There is the Plexiglas one,
but I’m not really a fan of it.
So when community member Adrian designed this beautiful white metal case I decided to get one.
Personally I think it looks stunning, minimal and elegant. 1mm steel, white powder coated with
wooden end cheeks. Silkscreened on it is the beautiful artwork by Papernoise that has become
Mutable Instruments’ instantly recognizable visual style.
A beautiful anthem for all us synth lovers !
Last weekend we went to State-X New Forms. An eclectic arts and music festival in Den Hague.
We initially went to see The Orb who were performing the last gig of their 25th anniversary tour.
Being hardcore Orb fans we had to be there, especially since this tour had gotten some great reviews so far and we knew they would be playing mostly classic Orb tracks, meaning; the more down tempo, weird and wonderful ambient from Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld, Pomme Fritz, Orbus Terrarum, Orblivion and Cydonia … a lot of tracks they don’t often play.
This Bitwig Studio beta video demonstrates the unified modulation system in Bitwig Studio. Whether you’re working with macro controls, setting up modulation devices (such as LFOs or envelope followers controlling plug-ins), or just assigning velocity to the filter in our virtual analog synth—assignments are all made using the same powerful but easy-to-use concept.
