    What is the 500 series format?

     

    Started by Automated Processes Inc. (API) to please a market which wanted modularity in their consoles with switchable preamps, eq’s and compressors, they standardized the format into what is known today as the 500 series format. This format made high end rack mounted hardware processors more affordable and portable. The fact that it was so portable meant that it could easily be carried around so it could be used in live recordings as well, all in a handy rack which could be customized to suit the need of the hour. Since API standardized this format a huge list of third party manufacturers have jumped on this bandwagon including brands like Rupert Neve, Heritage Audio, ShadowHill, SSL, Moog, Elysia, Tonelux, Lindell and many more! Today the 500 series format has exploded onto home studios and high end recording studios all over the globe giving engineers and producers an affordable access to otherwise really expensive and boutique gear.

  • Moog Minitaur + Arturia BeatStep

    Bassline Heaven with Minitaur & BeatStep

    Sep 8 • Quick Post • 1651 Views

    The Moog Minitaur is an absolute bass monster, no other synthesizer comes close to the low end on this. The oscillators were tweaked to provide maximum low end impact! We’ve been huge fans of the Minitaur and more recently have been combining it with Arturia’s handy BeatStep controller. The two pairs up to provide us quick hands-on-control and a powerful step sequencer for some serious bassline goodness!

    We were able to get all the classic 303 style patterns as well as modern ones that are perfect for all kinds of electronic music. This along with the full integration in DAW’s means we can easily capture all creativity and automate every parameter to our heart’s content. So. Much. Fun.

    Quick Jam Session

    We connected the BeatStep straight to the Minitaur via MIDI (omitting the need of a computer for sequencing) & the sound is a raw recording straight from the MiniTaur without any processing at all.
