We listened to some new Unzyme tracks with Lasse from Pihka ja myrsky. I also got a chance to hear many songs from their forthcoming album, and it sounds fucking amazing. Lasse will help us with the production of our third album, which will be released in 2016.

Live video recording on GoPro Hero cameras

We record every experiment on at least two GoPro cameras. The main purpose of this is to see how the performance actually looked like, and what could be done better.

Nexus 2 eLicenser dongle is the reason why we’re abandoning this wonderful software synth

Nexus 2 was one of our favorite synths. It was straightforward and sounded great. It’s a pity that we had to stop using it. The only reason for this is that we really can’t risk using a dongle while on the road. It breaks easily, and if it breaks, there’s no backup system. If we … Read more

Ableton Live as an automatic DMX controller

Oftentimes the built-in sound recognition systems in lighting fixtures are rudimentary and boring. Here I describe a method for utilizing Ableton Live and some third-party plugins to create an automatic DMX light controller system. The system also implements the iPad for controlling the lights when automatic sequences become boring. Recently, I had the opportunity of building a discotheque at … Read more
