New Song (Cumulus 3 – The Quarters)

This is the 3rd track in the Cumulus series. As always this is coming from multiple live overdubs using my modular synth and NI’s maschine.

This is music for very late nights, dark rooms and headphones… or any other time and place of your choice of course.

(The Cumulus series is intended to work as a conceptual soundtrack to an abandoned, hulking and alien structure. Use of rich imagination and association is highly recommended!)

Ableton Push Controller for Live 9 with 11 Touch-Sensitive Encoders

Here’s a walkthrough / review of the controller and the workflow it enables:

If you are serious about music production / composing in Live 9, this should be a no-brainer!

Not really news…

Posts are rare these days, but rest assure there are a lot of things cooking in the Glitzerstrahl labs. The modular synth is taking up a lot of time, but most of it is pure explorations and learnings at this point. Not so much actual music being made.

I’m slowly working on the next Cumulus track, which I plan to pull in a more melodic direction, but I want to use it as an excuse to experiment with a workflow that utilizes the Maschine as well as Live in the setup. Therefor it’s taking longer than usual.

Keep tuning in, there’s lots more coming!

In the meantime, tell me what you are working on! Any modular / analog stuff happening?

Update on the Ableton Live 9 / Push Release Date

I originally reported on the Live 9 and Push being available for preorder at major retailers back in December. Now it looks like Guitar Center and Musicians Friend has updated their expected availability / shipping date for the Ableton Push controller and Ableton Live 9.

Guitar Center is now at

Push : March 18
Live 9: February 11

and Musicians Friend is at

Push: March 25
Live 9: February 18

I guess the rumors and speculations continue. Makes me wonder if they are simply guessing dates to lure people to pre-order? At this rate Bitwig might just make it out before 9 after all…
