What does a Yamaha CS-40m sound like?

25 Nov

What sounds can you make with a Yamaha CS-40m analog synthesizer? Here is a collection of custom patches that I programmed into my Yamaha CS-40m. The demo includes basses, leads, sound effects, and more. I recorded these patches dry into Ableton Live. No effects processing was done. All parts were played by myself.

What does a Roland Juno-60 sound like?

2 Nov

What sounds can you make with a Roland Juno-60 polyphonic analog synthesizer? Here is a collection of custom patches that I programmed into my Roland Juno-60. The demo includes basses, strings, pads, arpeggios, and more. I recorded these patches dry into Ableton Live, and then used Ableton’s Large Space Chorus reverb preset to add some ambiance. (Ableton’s reverb sounds great on synths.) No other processing was done. All parts were played by myself; no DCB-MIDI conversion was used.

Mixcraft 6 Teacher’s Guide

MIXCRAFT 6 TEACHER’S GUIDE

My first book,  a text about making music in the classroom, is now available for free. Mixcraft 6 Teacher’s Guide is a teaching tool and reference manual aimed at educators who wish to incorporate music composition, music production, and digital audio workstations into an education curriculum.  The book contains an overview of a great piece of music software called Mixcraft and includes lesson plans for making remixes, podcasts, film scores, and about a dozen other creative creations. Educators can download the book here along with supplementary materials (such as templates for making music and sample projects).
