Just posted a video up on some of the things I’ve done over the last few weeks to experiment with getting the new MPC line to talk with Eurorack and get everything in sync.

MPC Forums Beat Battle 315 – Tailgating Life

I’ve been messing around trying to get an Ambient DnB setup working, and ended up thinking the concept might fit well with the MPC Forums Beat Battle 315 this week.

Can you get multiple audio interfaces connected to your iPad?

The short answer to the question is NO, you cannot have multiple audio interfaces hooked up to your iPad. At least this is probably not going to work the way that you want.

How to add more power connections to your Eurorack Case

First, a quick video… I’ve hit a problem… my Eurorack plans require 22-23 power connections, and I only have 20 provided by my Make Noise case. Assuming that the power supply is sufficient, I can use a flying bus cable to add some more power connection points. I bought the Synthrotek Deluxe 10 Connection FlyingContinue reading “How to add more power connections to your Eurorack Case”
