Text, videos and images from 2019 NAMM

Thursday, January 24

We arrived at 8:00am to set up our booth.  Bassist Nathan Navarro arrived as planned at 8:15 to help us test bass to analog synth and bass to MIDI.  Here are two videos showing the amazing bass to MIDI performance:

Later in the day, our friend Stewart Cole came by to test the audio to synth tracking with trumpet.  Here are the results of trumpet to MIDI playing the microKORG:

We were fortunate enough to get another brass instrument demo with Freddy Gonzalez of JazzED playing trombone:

Today we noticed that Future Music posted this great interview with Simon Arblaster:

And finally, Stewart Cole amazed us with this trumpet to CV performance for controlling the Behringer Model D via analog means:

The last day of NAMM was shorter for us but just as eventful as previous days.  Pedro Eustache, flute and wind instrument virtuoso who plays for Hans Zimmer’s orchestra, surprised us and was able to get the flute sufficiently above the very challenging noise floor at NAMM to make this short (but sweet) video:

 

Finally, Aram Bedrosian, virtuoso bass guitarist, came back to give us this performance via MIDI control using one of the bass patches on the microKORG:

We had a very tiring but eventful 2019 NAMM!  We expect to share some more professionally-produced, higher-quality videos very soon.  Follow us and stay tuned!
