Getting Organized in Spectrasonics’ Stylus RMX

Stylus RMX by Spectrasonics is not only the coolest tool ever but brings a lot of cool sounds, too. And when I say a lot, I actually mean “A BIG F*** LOT!!!” (and I don’t use exclamation marks that often not to mention three of them). I just want to make clear, that there are many sounds, beats, kits included.

Which brings up the question, how to organize the stuff to your liking. I just want to find the needed loop in that moment when I’m looking for it and I don’t want to spend my time browsing and browsing and browsing. Did I mention, that I own some expansion packs, too? No? Yep, they came with the Xpanded pack, so I didn’t have a choice, didn’t I? Well maybe, I should avoid converting more of my own samples to the lib, … I just had/have to. :)

If you own this fine tool, this tutorial is a must-see for you. Highlight is the right-click feature of the “Add” button which lets you choose the suite to which you will add. Nice, nice, NICE.

@Spectrasonics, @ericpersing:
Your tools are worth every single euro I paid for them and then some. Thanks!

I said, Apparently there is more to writing novels, being a novelist, than I thought. I wrote Sartoris. It took much longer, and the publisher refused it at once. But I continued to shop it about for three years with a stubborn and fading hope, perhaps to justify the time which I had spent writing it. This hope died slowly, though it didn’t hurt at all. One day I seemed to shut a door between me and all publishers’…

Using a TODO-List in your Ableton Live Project

imagesThose of you who know me personally, know that I’m an addict of the Getting Things Done method (GTD) and ToDo-Lists. This explains why I like this very interesting video by Quantize Courses. It’s a quick tutorial about how to store your notes/ToDos not only directly into Ableton Live but in a convenient central list instead of scattered notes all over the place. Cool!
@QuantizeCourses: Thanks for sharing! Keep up the good work.


Scylla – the six headed monster – VST synth is released for free

Scylla is a 32 bit Windows VST instrument capable of sample-playback combined with subtractive synthesis to produce a wide variety of sonic possibilities ranging from lush pads to far-out soundscapes and effects via scorching leads and chunky bass.

Scylla includes three different types of oscillators that can be modified to a wide variety of styles and three built-in samplers that can accommodate .wav audio samples, which can be played back in grain table, waveform, sample or single hit format. All the audio can be modified and modulated through LFO, volume and filter envelopes, Ring-Modulation, and Unison.

Scylla was co-developed with Singing Crane


Scylla has a tabbed interface with a different tab for each of the 3 layers and a Global tab for effects and LFOs. Each Layer is identical except each has a different type of oscillator, with a Cross-modulation osc, a Morphing osc and a Spectral osc
