TECHNEWS IN ASSOCIATION WITH FROM A SYNTH LOOP CUSTOM RIFFS
USING THIS WEEK&#x2019;S FEATURED PACK from Clickproduce, Jonny at Point Blank music school gives us a masterclass with Ableton on how to take a synth loop and sample it to create your own riff.
APP NAME : BLEEP!BOX DEVELOPER : DAVID WALLIN FORMAT : PRICE :
WHAT WE HAVE HERE is something different to create a cool loop or vibe using a succession of parameter screens. The interface is based around a drum machine and synthesizer and each stage of tweaking (there are 50 parameters) has been carefully considered by the sleek design of the controls. It&#x2019;s really great to have full control over the sounds being created via synthesis.

There is a steep learning curve with bleep! BOX but there&#x2019;s a sense of accomplishment once you&#x2019;re up and running. You can be very creative within the default 2 bar step sequence (8 bar maximum) and the sonic possibilities are virtually endless. Once you&#x2019;re happy with your musical doodlings you can email, share to Soundcloud and naturally tweet to the world.
It&#x2019;s fascinating stuff and makes us realise how much more useful our music software can be with a bit of tuition. For more tips and online courses visit www. pointblankonline.net
