#NewMusic Turkey-based artist Mert Omd - Candy [Progressive House]

“I listen to all kinds of music for inspiration, from Turkish artists like Duman, Cem Adrian and Feridun Düzağaç, to popular dance artists like Tiesto, Rihanna, David Guetta and Pitbull” explains the Turkey-based artist


Shout out to The New Beatmaker favourites Ashes and Dreams, their DreamHouseBeats Youtube page (click here: http://bit.ly/2DA00jD) just put me on to this progressive house and trance music specialist, based in Turkey.

From the DreamHouseBeats Youtube page:

Follow Mert Omd on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/album/1PEaYX... As soon as Mert Omd saw a YouTube video about Novation’s Launchpad MIDI controller, he thought to himself, “I must create music!” However, Omd’s kind of music involves programming loops, sounds and effects – known as digital or electronic music. Specializing in Progressive House and Trance music, the Turkey-based artist tries to keep an open mind. “I listen to all kinds of music for inspiration, from Turkish artists like Duman, Cem Adrian and Feridun Düzağaç, to popular dance artists like Tiesto, Rihanna, David Guetta and Pitbull.” Using FL Studio recording software, Omd’s creative tools include his computer, MIDI keyboard and headphones. “I learned how to produce music myself. This is what I am most proud of in my life,” he says. He sticks to instrumentals because “I'm not a good poet. I'm so bad at writing lyrics.” Omd was born in Rize, Turkey, where he attended primary and high school, eventually moving to Trabzon to study Energy Systems Engineering at Karadeniz Technical University. It was in high school that Omd developed his love for electronic dance music. “When I was in high school, we listened to music with headphones on while we were studying lessons. That was the popular thing to do. After I heard electronic music, I got hooked.” Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child” and Afrojack’s “Rock the House” were especially beloved by Omd. This passion led to Omd developing ideas for his own music – “My music is part of my soul,” says Omd – as well as collaborating with others. Omd has worked with fellow producers like Furkan Sahinn, Derrez, Selim Sahin and Difper, and vocalists like Cicekkk. “I'll collaborate with more artists in the future, too.” Perhaps even his father, who plays the traditional Turkish instrument, the bağlama. Currently, Omd is preparing to release his debut CD, Awakening, on the Dream House Beats label. “When I sent a demo to my friend, they suggested the name ‘Awakening’ to me. It’s the name of a song, as well as the name of the album. This release really is like an awakening or debut. “ As for some of the other songs, Omd says he “imagined ‘Galaxy’ while watching the sky at night; while the song ‘Larid’ was a misspelling when I accidentally hit the wrong keys on a keyboard, but I really liked that name.“ As he puts his music out into the universe, Omd hopes others experience an awakening when they listen to it, too.

Software News: Dialog Audio unleashes unique sequenced modulation pattern possibilities with SQ4 Sequence Processor plug-in


Dialog Audio unleashes unique sequenced modulation pattern possibilities with SQ4 Sequence Processor plug-in

From the folks over at Dialog Audio:

COLOGNE, GERMANY: hot on the heels of its innovative MP3244 Modulation Processor synchronisation and modulation plug-in (and advancing update subsequently launched late last year to widespread critical acclaim), specialised performance tools developer Dialog Audio is proud to announce availability of its SQ4 Sequence Processor audio software plug-in — pushing processing boundaries beyond what has been previously possible with the creation of advanced sequences to modulate and synchronise audio hardware and software parameters from within a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) host application — as of January 15…

As implied by name, SQ4 Sequence Processor permits users to create unique sequenced modulation patterns — four sequences with up to 128 steps per sequence, so not so much one small step for man, but rather one giant leap for music-kind when it comes to the creation of advanced sequences to modulate and synchronise audio hardware and software parameters from within a DAW host application!
As such, the basic setup for most host applications is similarly straightforward, with only two tracks usually required. On one track the user needs to add SQ4 Sequence Processor itself, then add the target device — be that an external hardware or software instrument — to the second track, with a virtual MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) connection also needing to be made from the SQ4 Sequence Processor track to the target device track.

Thereafter, like its innovative MP3244 Modulation Processor software sibling, SQ4 Sequence Processor provides different connection capabilities (depending, of course, on the audio hardware setup it is being used with), which, interestingly, includes: controlling hardware synthesizers (or other hardware) with MIDI inputs via MIDI CC (Continuous Controller) messages, RPN (Registered Parameter Number) and non-RPN messages, or MIDI SysEx (System Exclusive) messages; modulating any analogue synthesizer capable of receiving CV (Control Voltage) signals simply by patching spare outputs from an audio interface (if DC-coupled) is perfectly possible, generating high-resolution audio rate CV modulation, or, alternatively, a MIDI-to-CV converter could always be pressed into play for any audio gear that can be controlled via CV. Owners of software-only setups need not feel left out of the picture, for SQ4 Sequence Processor can capably modulate soft synths and audio plug-ins within the host DAW to provide extended modulation possibilities.

Whatever way whatever user chooses to work, SQ4 Sequence Processor places a raft of fanciful features at their ever-more- expressive fingertips, including variable synchronisation options, which can be set from free running to hard sync. Note events can re- trigger a sequence and several running directions can be selected. SWINGSLEW (limiting), PHASE (offset), and GAIN controls can be adjusted to accommodate modulations for the target device.

Deeper still, each of those 128 sequence steps can be tailored to create unique modulation signals. Steps can be combined to allow long and smooth curves over multiple steps; speedy, adjustable step sequences can be used to create modulations with steep surges; slope sequences are suitable for quick and rough modulations.

Moreover, SQ4 Sequence Processor can be loaded within MP3244 Modulation Processor, which serves to extend its modulation possibilities further still, so pushing processing boundaries beyond what has been previously possible with the creation of advanced sequences to modulate and synchronise audio hardware and software parameters from within a DAW host application steps up another gear. Getting it is to get creative like never before, but getting both SQ4 Sequence Processor and SQ4 Sequence Processor is a killer creative combination like no other on earth... one giant leap for music-kind for sure!

SQ4 Sequence Processor can be purchased — for Mac OS X 10.7+ (AAX/AU/VST, Universal Binary) or Windows (7, 8, 10 AAX/VST, 64-bit/32-bit) — directly from Dialog Audio for $49.00 USD (including VAT) from here: https://dialogaudio.com/shop.php


Moreover, MP3244 Modulation Processor and SQ4 Sequence Processor can be bought bundled together for $79.00 USD (including VAT), representing around a 20% saving over buying both products separately; still better, owners of MP3244 Modulation Processor are eligible for a special offer to upgrade their existing MP3244 Modulation Processor license to a Plugin Bundle license by buying SQ4 Sequence Processor at a reduced rate, valid until February 28, 2018.

Note that SQ4 Sequence Processor runs in demo mode until a valid Software License Key is entered; during demo mode the plug-in will intermittently stop processing and preset loading is permanently disabled.

#TNBCatchUp #MusicMonday Cayman Island's Josh Pearl Warms up Winter with Sizzling Summer Ode to Love

'TNBCatchUp' takes a look back at projects which should have been featured at the time of release.

Twitter [@joshxpearl] | Twitter [@taylorking] | Instagram | Youtube

Born, raised and residing in the Cayman Islands, Josh Pearl presents "Emotional", the new Taylor King-produced single from Pearl's forthcoming EP Lost In Eldorado. Jamaican singer Mavado can be seen cosigning Pearl in the music video for his 2015 single "My Homies" (watch) which still receives radio play in the Caymans. Pearl writes and directs most of his own music videos, including "Night Rider" (watch), the first single from Lost In Eldorado, shot in Los Angeles, and "First Mill" (watch), shot in China. In 2014 Pearl also wrote, directed, and edited A Savside Story, which was premiered in the Caymans to a sold-out theatre audience back to back on the same night (watch). Pearl says the inspiration for "Emotional" came after he relocated temporarily to Los Angeles. "I felt like no matter how much I would show and prove to people how serious I was about everything I was doing, I still never got that same respect back. From being betrayed by a radio station back home that I built years of a relationship with, who falsely advertised my name at a event that I had no consent to, to someone I had love for not feeling the same way as I did towards our relationship. It all melted into me letting all of my emotions go onto this song, which is something that was new for me."

#TNBCatchUp #MusicMondays Rich Jones "Light Work" EP Produced by Vapor Eyes

An Enjoyable Collab between an Energetic Everyman Emcee and One of the most Multi-talented Producers in the Game



Rich possesses a likeable, everyman vibe and melodic delivery which compliments Vapor Eyes's sonic pallet; a smooth jazz meets psychedelia vibe, with old school hip hop drums with PLENTY of knock. This is a great introduction to Rich for The New Beatmaker. Vapor Eyes again proves himself to be one of the most musically diverse yet consistently talented producers in the game.

Press Release C/O Vapor Eyes:

 

Rich Jones "Light Work" EP
Produced by Vapor Eyes

Rich Jones - "Light Work" EP prod. by Vapor Eyes - OUT NOW!
---------------------------------
The latest EP from Chicago’s homegrown talent Rich Jones is an exciting pairing with lauded producer Vapor Eyes, a prominent member of the Push Beats collective. The songs are, in a sense, a return to form for Jones, who made waves in 2017 with his shift into pop and r&b music. The release of the VEGAS EP and single 'No Clue' had Rich selling out Lincoln Hall in January and playing North Coast Music Festival this past summer. His success in these genres led to Rich being profiled by FOX 32 Chicago, The Chicago Tribune, NPR Music, and making the cover of the Chicago Reader all within the last year. 
Now that Rich has a bit of attention, he offers up a project that is more distinctly hip-hop with elements of the melodic. Light Work EP delivers on these ideas in excellent fashion, showcasing a mature artist ready to ascend to the national stage. The soundscape produced by Vapor Eyes on this EP allows Jones to lay right in his pocket between futuristic lasers and soulful vinyl.  
The album contains guest features from renowned LA-based rapper Kosha Dillz in addition to rising Chicago artists Show You Suck and Sports Boyfriend. Light Work showcases Jones’ talent as both songwriter and vocalist while providing memorable moments for all those involved. It is a celebration and a thank you to Chicago to cap off an incredible year where the city gave so much energy to him. Jones wants to carry that energy out into the country as he prepares a slew of new projects and tour dates for 2018.
