Stylophone Sample Kit

A sample-kit of the 20 notes a Stylophone produces

JordyVision's StylophoneRecorded by using the Stylophone’s headphone out connected to a M-Audio Fast Track Pro at 96000Hz with 24-Bits of resolution. Carefully cut and tested by yours truly. And I’ve even included patches for Ableton’s Simpler and Sampler! During the recording the pitch of the Stylophone was tuned all the way down to get the most out of the bass.

Find the download below, but please take notice of the install instructions!

To install the Ableton Simpler and/or Sampler, check the following steps:

1. Locate the Ableton library.
2. Open the “Samples” folder located within the Ableton library.
3. Place the folder “JordyVision” in the “Samples” folder.*
4. Go back to the library and find a folder named “Presets”, open it.
5. Open the folder labeled “Instruments”.
5. Place the file named “Stylophone by JordyVision.adg” in the folder titled “Instrument Rack”, and “Stylophone by JordyVision.adv” in the “Sampler” folder.**

*If you’ve already installed the TR-505 and TR-606 samples before, just place the folder named “Stylophone” in the “JordyVision” folder.
**You can also double click the file(s) to open them in Ableton, then save them to the library within the application.

Download here.

All done! You can now find the instruments among the other Instrument Racks and and Sampler patches for Ableton. Any questions? Ask them in the comments below!

 

2011 retrospect

A quick resume of 2011’s favorite’s and accomplishments.

Nyan Cat

My favorite track of the year is a Chi’town style House track. Original version by Benny Rodrigues, remixed by Surrealism.

Benny Rodrigues – House Music (Surrealism’s Daft Funk Remix) by EARMILK

I made the first ever EP produced on the Korg M01 Music Workstation for Nintendo DS; Y.A.M.A.

My review of Korg M01 Music Workstation (Or Workstaiton as it’s spelled in the software…) was one of the most viewed posts on my website, along with the TR-505 / TR-606 sample packs for Ableton Live.

Of my own productions, Sick’O’Six is my personal favorite, it’s unreleased as of yet.. (Keep an eye out for a certain 12″ in 2012!). But you can hear it in my Cloudcast: 303 Decks Don’t Need FX. Apparent in this track is my transition from digital to analog production over the year. 2012 will be mostly analog, a happy perspective.

The biggest loss of this year was NOT re-visiting Japan! I miss the place and people and I really hope to be there again soon..

However, the biggest win was going to Paris with @Mooiechocolat. And I’ve been to Paris again with @CaroSiburny. And I’ll go again this very week!!! I ❤ Paris!

A happy, healthy and Acid 2012 everyone!

 

Ableton Drum Rack: DTMF Dial Pad

Dual Tone Multi Frequency

Raytheon IST-2 Secure Telephone – Dial Pad Closeup

I was cleaning-up my samples folder and ran into these samples I once made, probably back in 2007 or 2008. Simple and funny, the dial pad of a telephone can be used to add a whole different beep to your bang.

Theoretically you can sequence a telephone-number in Ableton and initiate a call! Just hold the phone’s receiver up to your speaker while playing back the sounds and the call should commence. Oh, this will work only with a landline, mobiles don’t dial that way. I have little experience with VoIP phones, so I don’t know if they work with DTMF tones. Head on over to Wikipedia to learn more about DTMF.

Download DTMF Dial Pad Drum Rack

Once downloaded, put the folder “JordyVision” in the samples folder of your Ableton Library, usually found at:

Ableton/Library/Samples

Put the drum rack file (.adg extension) in the correct presets folder of your Ableton Library. That would be “Drum Rack” in this case, typically located at:

Ableton/Library/Presets/Instruments/Drum Rack

You can make your own folder within the Drum Rack folder if you wish. Most of the time I call these “My Presets”, “My Patches” or something along these lines, pick a name you’re comfortable with.

These and more samples can be found on the samples page.
