Red Panda Lab Particle – Review and Demo by Ember Music artist Scott Brown

Ember Music artist Scott Brown (Fake Empire, Slowly We Falter) has posted a review and demo of the Red Panda Lab Particle. He also talks about some of the uses/techniques he discovered using the Particle so far.

Particle is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.

The audio demos were created by running an Elektron Machinedrum into the particle. It works particularly well with drum tracks so I wanted to show some of it’s potential. The audio was recorded into Logic via a Saffire Pro 40 interface.

ALbum Review: TANGRAM: REPOSITORY [002] – BY CHRIS ROMANS, HEAR THE INDIE

TangramRepository2

Check out this fabulous review of Tangram’s Repository [002] by Chris Romans at Hear the Indie

Tangram is the solo project of artist Péter Fabók  who dabbles in an array of electronic, chill out styles of song. The music is almost entirely ambient, but not in a boring, sleep inducing way. Rather, it features some tight, almost orchestral, compositions with captivating synthetic tones and melodies…. Repository [002] is an exemplary album from this artist, and worth taking a look at if your into the sounds of space and ambiance.

“…you will become immersed in these curling compositions which feel like the soft touch of warm water on taut skin. This one is a close quarters exercise in delirious heart pounding escapism, I don’t quite know where I’m at when I listen to this and I’ll be damned if I’m going to stop.”
