2010! Links to the future.
What you need to succeed in 2010!
by Wolfgang aka Fadi
I love my Scope Pulsar and Luna card. Both host my Sonic Core Scope v5 plattform and give me all the freedom I need for my music-production since many years.
Scope Xite-1 is now the long awaited new flagship of Sonic Core. The costs are high but for sure worth to be paid. More info in english & german.
Normally I work with my analog synths or the synths from the Scope plattorm (Sonic Core). But this synth rocks my mind. Helix has a great inferface to create own sounds in the range from Wave-Table-Shaping, Phase modulation, Virtual Analog & Physical Modelling Hybrid Synthesizer. 149.-$ is not that cheap but the $ is still low. Download a demo and get hooked.
If you like it scary then buy Swamp XT by H.G. Fortune and you'll rock the next grufti- or helloween party. Only 25.-€ for a career in the dark segment.
If you use Ableton Live this midi controller will help you to create a better work flow and will rise the communication with the audience. Give this nice tool a try.
My mobil phone broke. I had to buy a new one which was not that easy because I wanted a tool and not a gadet. A BlackBerry 8520 Curve passed the check and with Memotoo & a Funambol plugin for BlackBerry I am perfectly updated also on my Ubuntu computer in my office. YES!
Since New Years Eve 2001 I use Linux. First Caldera, Suse, Mandrake, Debian and last but not least Ubuntu.
Linux/GNU helps me to get everything done in my office on a high level of perfection, secure and intuative. What software do I use most: Inkscape (vector-graphics), Gimp (photo & graphic), OpenOffice (writing, calculating), Firefow (web), Thunderbird (mail), KeepNote (notebook to be organized), Grsnyc (backup), .....
ALL THE BEST FOR 2010
