The Moog Grandmother is surprisingly flexible for a single-oscillator monosynth. We use a Dark Series edition Grandmother to create a Boards Of Canada-style ambient track in Ableton Live. We don’t often think of monosynths as being flexible. They’re great for bass and leads and the occasional whooshy effect but for wildly deep synthesis, we’re...

However, some might say that we’ve lost something sonically in the move to digital. Hardware mixing desks, recording to tape, semi-working effects and instruments - these all...

3 Quick Ways To Program Basslines On An UNO Synth Pro

We use the onboard sequencer on the desktop model of IK Multimedia’s UNO Synth Pro to quickly whip up three house and techno basslines.
