I’ve used Battery for quite a while as my standard go to drum sampler. I only realised quite recently that I was only using a fraction of its power, it has amazing sound design, modulation and sampling features.

I decided to make myself a drum kit so that I could fully explore its features as well as filling in some percussion sounds I felt were missing from my collection. After a bit of experimentation, out came Genki kit. Now I have put it on  KVR for all to enjoy

All of the drums were made using raw sample material from Gen-Rate (my crazy Reaktor noisebox) and processed using Battery. The end result is a glitchy kit with a variety of different techy fx sounds.

I also uploaded Darqdelay to KVR, in case you don’t have access to the NI library.

Eagle eyed readers might have noticed there is now a link to the articles page on the sidebar. I have decided to start a new part of the site for longer article style posts.  The first one is about games that have incorporated music in some creative way. I’ve always found the concept of interactive music fascinating and so I decided to compile a list of the games I felt gave the most unusual or interesting approach to music. Read it here

Mr Scruff at Koko

Mr Scruff 1

I went to Mr Scruff’s residency at Koko on Saturday and it was immense. You’ve got to respect anyone who can pull off a 6 hour set with such technical prowess. When that set blends seamlessly between genres, and builds from gentle funkiness as you come in to massive energy that just makes you have to dance for the last 2 hours, it just blows your mind.

Also you’ve got to love Koko, I used to live there when it was still the Camden Palais. Its like you’ve wandered into a scene from some post apocalyptic film involving an abandoned theatre … brilliant.

Bottom line is, if you’re in London in 6 weeks time, Go! You won’t regret it.

Love and Peace
