The 2nd Annual BOSS Loop Station World Championship was held in Frankfurt, Germany, last week during day one of the Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound trade show.

BOSS Loop Station World Championship

BOSS crowned French beatboxer TIONEB the 2012 BOSS Loop Station World Champion after delivering an intense looping performance featuring only his voice. Loop-based music making is a leading form of musical expression today, and BOSS’ innovative Loop Station products have played a major role in the rise of this art form.

HBlockX’s German rocker Henning Wehland emceed the unique musical contest alongside an esteemed panel of international judges including vocalist/instrumentalist Ricoloop, percussionist Michael Shack, guitarist Alex Hutchings, and German hip hop sensation Samy Deluxe.

After winning regional and national semi-final rounds held during 2011, musicians from 19 different countries earned a chance to showcase their looping talents on the world stage in Frankfurt. Of the 19 finalists who qualified, 12 made their way to Frankfurt to compete. TIONEB from France took home a Grand Prize of €3,000. Beatboxer En.Dru of Czech Republic won Second Prize, beatboxer Vakhtang from Russia was awarded Third Prize, and Brazil’s singer/actress Liah Soares received special recognition for an outstanding computer keyboard rhythm and blues performance.

“Strong competition captivated the Frankfurt audience as France’s TIONEB mesmerized the judges,” said Gary Lenaire, Roland Corporation U.S. BOSS & Guitar Product Manager. Lenaire attended the world championship in support of U.S. finalist Angela Sheik, a master looper, vocalist and instrumentalist who wowed a U.S. audience in October with an intriguing looping performance with a Theremin and a RC Looper. An audience of more than 400 enthusiastic music fans attended the show, held at the King Kamehameha club, one of Frankfurt’s most popular night spots.

Pioneer DJ intros RMX-1000 Remix Station

Pioneer DJ has announced its new RMX-1000, featuring all the potential of software with the hands-on usability of pro-DJ hardware.

Pioneer RMX-1000 Remix Station

Taking a totally new direction to effectors and samplers, the RMX-1000 is a three-in-one system comprising editing software, innovative performance hardware and VST / AU plug-ins.

Technological innovation is in Pioneer’s DNA. Now you have the ability to bring studio levels of sound manipulation out into the DJ booth and trigger personalised samples on the fly. With the Quantize function driven by a new BPM engine, your effects will always be precisely beat matched.

The RMX-1000 serves up all the possibilities of studio effects and beatboxes, with the added physicality of pro-DJ equipment. Intuitive performance interfaces from Pioneer’s flagship mixers and effectors – such as the DJM-2000’s Isolator FX, the DJM-900nexus’s X-Pad and the EFX-1000’s multiple FX chaining – have been evolved and brought together into one unit.

Simplifying these concepts even further, the RMX-1000 uses intuitive DJ controls to manipulate several parameters in macro. Each effect has been designed to work in a totally unique way with the interface, for results previously only possible with hours of studio automation or robot-like performance skills.

While the unit is incredibly simple to operate, DJs can still create a totally unique sound with Pioneer’s remixbox™ editing software. remixbox™ allows DJs to completely customise the RMX-1000 hardware to their own performance style and load it up with their own banks of samples.

And, by saving their settings to an SD card, DJs can effectively take their own personalised DJ rig with them wherever they perform. Plus, Pioneer plans to upload internationally renowned DJs’ settings and samples to its website so DJs can give themselves a head start.

Using the RMX-1000 as a USB controller for the included RMX-1000 VST / AU plug-ins gives DJs the same hands-on feel they get with studio DJ mixes, to breath new life into studio productions and save them from hours of editing.

The RMX-1000 will be available from May 2012 at a SRP of £599 GBP/ 699 EUR (including VAT).

Rhim Samples Stylophone Beatbox

Rhim Samples has released its Stylophone Beatbox sample library.

Stylophone Beatbox is a younger brother of the cultish Stylophone. The instrument is operated by a stylus and has three banks- drums, beatbox and bass.

It’s fun to play it through an external speaker, but when using headphone outputs the toy starts sound like a real, useful, drum machine. The dirty and nasty sample has got a charm of its own. What they need is modern way of sequencing music and some spicing up through scripting in Kontakt and racks in Ableton Live.

Stylophone Beatbox includes basic patches of drums, basses, beatbox and extra instruments in Kontakt and Ableton Racks formats. It is available to purchase for $2.99 USD. A free version (without scripts or macros) is available to download.
