Three New Articles in Soundbytes Music Magazine

The September Soundbytes magazine is now out at soundbytesmag.net and I have three articles in it.

First is a review of some very high quality pro-audio plugins from Fab Filter and Eventide, both leaders in the field of pro-audio, which are now available for the iPad:

Then there is a short review of Full Bucket Music's free polyphonic modular VSTi synthesizer, ModulAir, which is a very nicely designed small analog synthesizer.

And finally, there is an article in which I discuss electronic modifications of orchestral instrumental sounds, focusing on Stockhausen's Mixtur, and concluding with a review of Spitfire Audio's very complex and useful Kepler Orchestra sample library.  Kepler is designed to make both polyrhythmic sample playback and electronically modified orchestral samples much easier to both play and realize.

I also contributed to a discussion between San Francisco based composer Jerry Gerber and Soundbytes editor Dave Baer.  This discussion centered around the idea of virtuoso realization of orchestral music using instrumental samples.
