Atari Teenage Riot live rig

Posted on 22 October 2010 by D' MacKinnon

Alec Empire and CX KiDTRONiK of Atari Teenage Riot walk through what gear they are using live on their current tour. It’s a good mix of old and new technology.  Custom effect boxes, an Analogue Solutions Vostok, and an old school Atari ST sequencer that has taken a beating are among some of their gear. The Atari ST is running Notator. I’ve heard nothing but good about the reliability and tight midi timing of Notator running on the ST.

I’ve always wanted a Vostok since I first heard one several years ago.

The Octatrack!

Posted on 22 October 2010 by D' MacKinnon

For musicians that engage in sample-based live performance, Elektron has what you crave.
Presenting the Octatrack:

If you are currently using a laptop and Ableton Live for performances this could totally replace that setup. The file space is only limited by the CompactFlash card that you use with the Octatrack. This hardware unit is far more inspiring than mousing around in software as well. Step sequencer goodness…mmm.

Slim Fatty: The sound of a little fatty minus the keyboard

Posted on 20 October 2010 by D' MacKinnon


Moog Music has released the keyboardless Slim Fatty. Slightly smaller in width than a standard rackmount unit you can get that Moog Phatty sound on a smaller budget. Retails $849, street price of around $800.

Some deep dub-step sounds in the video

Soundcloud

Posted on 15 October 2010 by D' MacKinnon

Last night I signed up for a Soundcloud account.  I’m really digging on how easy it is to use, in the near future I will be switching over all of my audio samples to that account.  I’ve uploaded some of my past work into my account, at some point in the future I will upload more recent work.

You can find me at soundcloud.com/d-mackinnon.
