IK Multimedia Giveaway – T-Racks Custom Shop

IK Multimedia Giveaway – T-Racks Custom Shop IK Multimedia, an Italian based company, aims to bring classic hardware into full digital form with all their color and character. Their motto “Recreate classic legendary products in the digital world and make them available to all musicians,” and they’ve been pretty successful thus far. In light of IK’s 20th year anniversary, they’ve decided to giveaway a free T-Rack Compressor. The download process is a bit convoluted if you are not already registered with IK, (explained down below,) but is worth the process. The compressor emulates itself after classic warm sounding compressors, giving you a big full sound. The side chain effect detects your bass heavy sounds before they hit the detection circuit which modulates your compression. A stereo enhancement effect also allows you to easily widen or narrow your sound. Throw the Classic Compressor on piano, drums or bass to get a …

Remidi T8 – The Wearable Instrument

Remidi T8 – The Wearable Instrument Remidi has began a Kickstarter project with the goal of creating a fully wearable instrument. The T-8 is a pair of gloves with ultra sensitive sensors placed in 8 different spots around your hand, and two motion sensors placed on your wrist. By doing this you have the chance to program the 8 pads with sounds, and add effects to the motion sensors. The T-8 detects what to play based of what they call Air Modulation, which is pretty self explanatory. You are able to modulate your sound through air, by simply moving your hands with easy motion. The T-8 is also capable of switching between preset chosen scales which allows seamless transition from song to song. The only thing you need to play is a surface and some space.     The T-8 is currently available to those who back it on Kickstarter, so go …
