TOP FIVE TECH : 2018

Traveling With Electronics : Top Five Tech : 2018

 

.....five things that caught my eye in 2018

 

 

Everybody starts rolling out their "Best Of" lists about now so here, in no particular order or ranking, are the top five tech related tools that caught my eye this year.

 

SPACECRAFT GRANULAR SYNTH : I covered this when it was released and the developer Mark Watt keeps making it better : Going Granular With SpaceCraft

 

 

GESTRUMENT PRO : If you know my history with Conduction this was a no-brainer for me to be intrigued playing the rules of music through gesture.....yes please. 

 

 AKAI MPC-LIVE 2.3 UPDATE : While I still have a love/hate relationship with the MPC-Live, it continues to impress and this massive update brings allot to the table.

 

 EHX GRAND CANYON DELAY LOOPER : No matter what is on the table EHX always finds a way to put their quirky spin on things at an affordable price point.

 

EMPRESS EFFECTS ZOIA : The One That Got Away : this was the little box that captured everyone's attention at winter NAMM and then just dissapeared.....2019?

kinda MAX/MSP in a pedal - Adam at Empress Effects is saying a winter release...we'll see

 

Did I say TOP FIVE : 12/4 THIS JUST IN : SUGAR BYTES APARILLO for iOS : Released one year ago as a VST and today as an AUv3 and it is just AMAZING! 

 

                                                                                                                                 

 until next year then...safe travels...peaceful holidays...dino
