Archie Pelago Remix – Free Download – XLR8R

Nice One!

Via XLR8R:

“Brooklyn-based label end fence, an imprint devoted to releasing free batches of electronic music, has offered up an EP featuring five remixes of NYC trio Archie Pelago. “Prospect Dub,” one of the band’s jazzy, horn-laden shufflers, is warped here by New York producer and end fence co-founder kuxxan SUUM, who converts the original cut into a speeding, brooding piece of techno.”

Hello, Der Oto!

There is a fantastic new update for any Oto Biscuit owners out there – if you were on the fence about getting one, this should certainly shove you over! For those of you unfamiliar with the Biscuit, it’s an innovative effects processor that combines 8-bit converters and digital processing with analog resonant filters. It’s pretty amazing at transforming anything fed through it, into something much richer, crunchier and far more interesting.

Steinberg Neon and Karlette VST plugins are back.

Thanks to Wire to the Ear for tipping us off that Steinberg has re-released their Neon softsynth and Karlette tape delay effect. Back in the 90’s these two were some of the first VST plugins I’d ever used. I can’t wait to load them up in Ableton Live and take them for a spin again.

Hello Minitaur!

Today Moog Music announced the Minitaur synth. It’s a small all analog synth based on their Moog Taurus bass synth and it’s certainly looks like a bad ass portable bass synth.

From Moog:

“Minitaur is a compact and powerful analog bass synthesizer that features a classic one knob per function design. It packs legendary analog Moog bass into a package designed to fit seamlessly into today’s performance and production environments.”

What do you think? Would you rather have a Minitaur or a Slim Phatty ? Let us know in the comments.
