Korg Minilogue – Powerful Analog Synth on a Budget   Korg has been a front runner of the analog synthesizer world since the production of the Prototype No.1 in the 1970’s.

Celemony Melodyne 4 – Advanced Sound Editing

Celemony Melodyne 4 – Advanced Sound Editing   The long awaited Melodyne 4 has been released with its most extensive update in the history of its existence. Packed with new features, enhanced elements, and a modernized facelift, the Melodyne 4 is a whole new sort of monster, awarded with a ProTools Editors Choice Award. A new sound editor analyzes and enhances your sound by working off of note recognition technologies, which adapt to the timbre and overtones of your sound, rather than shaping them. You are also able to play with multitrack note editing, which allows you to dive into an unlimited amount of tracks and edit any given note, which is extremely useful when you have a number of tracks. Since the Melodyne 4 is semi-suited for live recording, a brand new tempo technology adapts to live tempo as oppose to setting a static beat.     These are …
