Video covers some questions I get quite frequently in my YouTube channel.
New video up
This one covers the oscillators (DCOs) in the Korg EX-800 (which are also the same in the Poly-800). They are interesting in that they only produce square waves. However, they have this neat trick where they can produce a special waveform called a step wave.
Watch the video to find out how …

This video shows how to use the interactive chord feature on the JD-Xi with external gear. The feature is able to transpose sequences via the root note of a chord.
See video description for more info
Roland have released a small fix for the Interactive Chord feature:
Many users were complaining there was some weirdness happening with the chord if a root note other than “C” was used. This is the fix for this bug.

What do you think? Watch the video to find out my opinion. Is the TB-3 now obsolete? Did Roland get it right the second time?
Behind the scenes setup of a recent Live Jam video (link below) that goes over the gear connections, Ableton live (DAW) and the main mixer (Roland MX-1) setup.
** THIS VIDEO COVERS A LOT OF GROUND ** – so you’ll expect it to be longer than usual. Some of the areas are:
* AIRA Host – USB connections
* MIDI setup – MIDI-IN, MIDI-OUT, MIDI-THRU
* Audio connections to the MX-1 mixer
* Sends and FX returns (AUX) connections with Strymon Big Sky
* Ableton Push setup
* Ableton Live sequencing and linking to live mixer
* Roland MX-1 Performance mode (PC input)
* Syncing gear together with master clock
Stay subscribed for the next part of this series which will go over the individual synthesizers, drum machines and samplers.
