Zoom ARQ #AR48 … Is it a toy? Is it Bad Music Tech? VISITATIONS: First test Jam…

Noticed this was in a blowout sale and for 25% of the original price couldn’t resist … although aimed at EDM type music, I think there is real potential in ambient or more chillout beat music, this jam is literally an hour or so after taking it out of the box … there are some nice hidden features, mostly around odd time signatures and the fact you can have 16 tracks of a 3 oscillator poly synth (a few sounds here are created quickly on my first opening) … might be nice to throw in my camera bag on hikes too … also the ring has some nice features with built in accelerometer too, and very surprised at the aftertouch included on this ‘toy’… Dawless jam / impro on Zoom ARQ #AR-48 Audio & Video recorded on a #ZoomQ2N4k no other processing Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes Mount Victoria Blue Mountains Australia

Ambient Electronica/Dance GaryPHayes GaryPHayes Music Hardware Jams Review Volca

VOLCA MODULAR: FIRST EXCURSION – No Talk. Instructional try 1 hr after box opening! #Volca #Modular

Obviously modular tends to be skewed more towards sound design than musicality (mostly), so please take that into account on this first run through – Been wanting to get the modular since it came out but wasn’t high on my list. But had a try out at a local music shop yesterday and was very impressed – you can certainly get sounds out of it that a basic east coast style analog synth can’t. Even in this first take super encouraged by some of the possibilities. Much of it is accidental (unless of course you have a wall of modular synths and you see this as a little toy to play with on the plane), but those new to it would likely be inspired to dive in deeper! Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes on Korg Volca Modular (after one hour unboxing) Minor additions from Volca Beats & Strymon Blue Sky

BOSS SY1 MUSICAL REVIEW 1st hour out of box. Most Sounds: Very cool low latency audio-to-synth pedal

A longish walk/talk through (sorry for the slight cold!) of this cool pedal, which in reality is a fully fledged 121 preset synth. Aimed at guitarists after a more ‘keyboard’ player vibe, it is very nice for anyone who adds acoustic/audio impros to their OTB synth setups – so my review is a little walkthrough with examples in my style, solo combined with some ad hoc tunes….
