Loopmasters DJ Pierre - Afro Acid House

Loopmasters has announced the release of DJ Pierre – Afro Acid House, a sample collection by DJ Pierre.

You probably don’t remember 1987. If you do, then you might have hazy memories of wearing aviator sunglasses, big leather jackets and fingerless gloves.

But away from the mainstream the first seeds of acid house were being sowed by four house music lovers in Chicago: DJ Pierre, Marshall Jefferson, Spanky and Herb Jackson. Together, under their alias Phuture, they created the world’s first acid house record called ‘Acid Tracks’, an 11 minute 17 seconds-long house trip based around a sound that has become synonymous with electronic music ever since, the bassline of the Roland TB-303 synthesizer.

Besides being a crucial DJ and the production wizard partly responsible for the development of Chicago acid-house, DJ Pierre later influenced the sound of New York’s more disco-fied house with his tenure as an in-house producer for Strictly Rhythm Records.

Now Loopmasters have teamed up with the godfather of Acid House himself to bring you a collection of inspiring sounds and samples from the very machines that created the genre which brought the UK and USA closer together through a love of Acid House music.

DJ Pierre – Afro Acid House features

  • 380MB of exciting content: 330 Samples, 300 loops and 30 ready to play patches for Reason NN-XT, Halion, Kontakt, EXS and SFZ samplers.
  • DJ Pierre has recorded over 70 Drumloops (expect 808/909 and classic Beatbox samples), 46 Bass Loops (suitable for Electro and Tech House), 46 Classic Acid House Basslines (The signature licks), 16 Grooves, 31 Keyboard Loops, 23 String Parts, 24 Synth Loops, 15 Pad FX and 52 Single Sounds.
  • This exclusive collection of samples cover the genres of House, Disco, Acid House, Tech and could even be worked into some progressive Techno.

DJ Pierre – Afro Acid House is available to purchase for £19.95 GBP.

Some interesting things I found recently:

iPhone fun in Ableton

# iPhone attack: TR-808, TB-303, Sampler, Synthesizer

Oliver Chesler puts together a track with some iPhone apps (Audiorealism technoBox, Tapestri and Andriod FX by Pure Profit).

Oliver writes:

I was having some music fun on my iPhone and I put together a quick Acid track. I recorded three apps into Ableton Live. There really is something to be said for bringing in audio from the outside world, even if it’s from another computer. I like the slight noise and live interaction the iPhone apps forced. The combined price of all the applications I used here was $11.97. Imagine what a Roland TB-303, Roland TR-808, Akai S950 and Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 would have cost you 15 years ago?

# AudioTag.info — your music recognition robot

AudioTag.info allows you to identify almost any unknown piece of music quickly and easily. Its use is very simple: you upload a short audio fragment or an entire song, the robot analyzes it and provides you with the information about the track title, artist name, album title, etc. Your audio fragment can be in almost any file format and of almost any quality (aurally recognizable, of course) — it can be an MP3 file downloaded from the Internet or a short recording made with your old tape recorder and stored as a low-quality .WAV-file.

Josh Freese

# Want Josh Freese to join your band? Got $75,000?

Former NIN drummer Josh Freese is promoting his new album with some limited edition deals.

There's a lot of funny stuff between the regular $7 digital download of Since 1972, and the $75,000 limited edition which includes things like going on tour with Josh for a few days, have Josh write, record and release a 5-song EP about you and your life story and taking a flying trapeze lesson with Josh and Robin from NIN.

# Apogee discontinues Windows development

From the Agogee news page:

As of 2009, Apogee Electronics will no longer develop products for the Microsoft Windows platform. Apogee has made this decision in order to focus all research, development, and support resources on the Apple platform with its unparalleled power and stability. Apple offers a wide range of affordable, powerful desktop and laptop solutions ideally suited for music creation and audio production.

Check CDM for discussion on the matter.

Ryan Gruss blog

# ryangruss.com

Ryan Gruss has a cool blog where he posts some free drum tracks.

I am a drummer based in Boston, Massachusetts. I previously lived in NYC and Los Angeles where I had the chance to record, collaborate and tour with a wide range of artists. I started this blog with the intention of sharing, transferring and exploring musical ideas with my friends around the world… as well as anyone else who might stumble across this site.

All of the drum tracks (unless credited) are recorded at my studio using Logic Pro 8. I include mp3s of all my recordings for quick previews as well as a separate link to the original, multitracked Logic files. Feel free to download, cut-up, eq, compress, distort, and mutate my drum parts and use them for your own projects. All I ask is that you send me a link to the final product when you’re finished. Let’s see what happens…

Currently at Loop #17.

# AT-AT Boom Box – Combining an AT-AT Walker with an old skool boom box, AT-AT Boom Box FTW!

# Reyn vs Björk – I’ve Seen It All [Dancer in the Dark] (link to YouTube)

Loving this video of Reyn Ouwehand’s mix of this Björk track.

Reyn writes:

I found this track on the album Family Tree. It's Björk together with the Brodsky string quartet.
Really love this track and version and thought it would be nice to do some looping over it.. Enjoy!..

# The Gerbil’s Revenge – Sasha Frere-Jones on Auto-Tune

Sacha writes:

No one has used Auto-Tune’s zero speed setting more consistently and successfully than the R. & B. singer T-Pain. Born Faheem Najm, in Tallahassee, he has become such a common guest on pop records that in a single week last year he was featured on four singles in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including the No. 1 song, Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss.” In the same way that the dry, flat drum sounds in Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” will forever say “mid-seventies,” T-Pain and Auto-Tune will forever remind people of the late aughts.
