Casiotone CT-S1000V


By homemademusic, 2022-01-23
Casiotone CT-S1000V

I've ordered the new Casiotone CT-S1000V which is currently making a bit of splash around the blogs of late. I think I may feature it on my FAWM 2022 album this year. It's supposed to arrive just before that so I should be able to play around with it and get some use-cases for you all after FAWM is over and I have something to showcase.

I'm almost entirely just interested in the vocal synthesis functions of the synth and not that it reportedly has a lot of pretty decent sounds on board.

There are random youtube commenters throwing down that this is merely a toy, but I'm not all that concerned with that. I like experimenting within limitations. The limitations themselves are often part of the instrument and expression.

If you've got one, wander over to the Casiotone CT-S1000V homemademusic profile page and let us know what you think in the dedicated forum there. And share some music while you're at. If you've got it to share.

Yamaha HS8 Studio Monitors and HS8S Subwoofer


By homemademusic, 2021-12-21
Yamaha HS8 Studio Monitors and HS8S Subwoofer

I've been mixing on headphones for many years. Many, many years. I'm not really sure why I suddenly thought that having studio monitors was something I needed, but I did and it was.

Affiliate link: https://amzn.to/33DeoZu

I also got the Yamaha HS8S subwoofer and I'm hoisting the monitors up with proline monitor stands.

I got my monitors at Guitar Center and picked them up after work the Thursday before the week of Christmas. It was a madhouse. It's a madhouse everywhere these days. I know. I manage a printshop.

The monitors are solid and it was easy to get everything connected. I watched a couple youtube videos, but the clearest instructions were really a couple paragraphs in the user manual since it's quite straightforward.

I have an iConnectivity audio interface and use Logic Pro as my DAW. It only has 1/4-inch monitor outputs but the HS8's can do either 1/4-inch or XLR inputs and outputs so I went from the iConnectivity 1/4-inch outs to the subwoofer inputs and then out from the XLR outputs on the subwoofer to the left and right HS8 monitor inputs. You need 4 cables total.

I fired up my most recent Logic Pro project and everything worked. Love it when that happens.

I do not recommend the Pro Line monitor stands (the subwoofer sits on the floor). The bolt that attached the riser to the floor base was difficult to screw in on one and didn't fully go into the other so it is currently not entirely stable. I tried screwing it with a power drill and stripped the allen hole. Maybe it's just me. The stand itself is solidly well-made.

And the monitors sound great. I had a friend over Sunday and we recorded a song I've had jostling around my lyric book for probably a decade that we worked out basic tracks on. Monitors definitely make a difference.

So far so great and highly recommended. I hear Finneas uses the HS5's and loads of other people swear by the flat, unaltered sound of the yamaha monitors.

MorphSound (Reaktor Instrument)

MorphSound (Reaktor Instrument)

C&S present another great sample based instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor including 100 presets. This one is playable via keyboard or any other MIDI input and makes morphing / modulating Atmo, Chord, Bass, FX and Lead sounds.

The morphing is controlled by an LFO and can be synced to your DAW. The instrument´s heart is a controllable granular sampler and features a spectral stereo equalizer plus two effects (Delay, Reverb).

So the presets can be changed in many ways though you instantly can start without any tweaking to easily produce music ranging from Deep House to Ambient right away.
