Molten Music Monthly – January 2019

Molten Music Monthly Podcast

As NAMM hots up I thought I’d get this in early and do a proper round-up next month. This month Korg pull out all the stops with two new Volcas, a new Minilogue and Gadget 2.0. Nektar get into the virtual instrument action with Bolt – Akai Force a new music production box on us – Casper’s Dark Matter module gets released – Erica Synths put plasma distortion into Eurorack, Mind Music Labs ELK still hasnt turned up in anything useful – Audient release a guitar focused audio interface and the so do IK Multimedia – Stylophone have another go – Bitwig Studio goes completely modular with version 3 – Gig Performer also hits version 3 – Nozori can give you 20 modules in 1 – Phase Plant has Hybrid synth – Expressive E gets all stringy and Teenage Engineering introduces some fabulous looking modular synths. But first Microsoft lifts the lid on DLL limits that we didn’t know existed.
