Atomic Luau – Midnight Snax Trax with DJ Mondo: Test Pilot

Atomic Luau – Midnight Snax Trax with DJ Mondo: Test Pilot

Check out my first rocky run of Midnight Snax Trax on YouTube Live.

The new Atomic Luau broadcast booth is up and running for more interactive and spontaneous live streams.

This stream featured loops and drum kits created on the Native Instruments Maschine MK3 and the Maschine Jam, with more tunes from the Blocs Wave app (Ampify) from the the iPad. All kept in time by Ableton Link.

Let me know if you like it in the comments. I want to do live streams with some regularity and rotate the gear in the setups (Ableton Push 2 and Novation Circuit are waiting).

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Play Right (Redux)

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Play Right (Redux)

The age of automation is accelerating. The functions being taken over applications and robots increase every day.

For the moment, humans are still telling the machines what to do.

I had another go at this tune. It’s made in Beatmaker 3 with loops from various apps and some freestyle GeoShred thrown in. It’s held together by AudioBus 3.

If you feel like dancing, dance…before the machines make it mandatory.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Midnight Snax Trax – Alien Invasion

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Midnight Snax Trax – Alien Invasion

It’s bad enough the aliens are invading. But they’re so noisy.

Check out this improvised stuff from the Novation Circuit and iPad. Some of the apps I used were Groove Rider, GeoShred and iMaschine, with Link-to-MIDI and AudioBus for routing and timing.

Crank it. Maybe it will drown out the aliens.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Power Beyond

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Power Beyond

Smoke on the surface is just an inkling of what lies beneath.

This tune is an improv with all custom loops on the Ampify Launchpad app. It’s so easy with the Ampify Blocs Wave app and AudioBus 3.

Any AudioBus-enabled app can play right into Blocs Wave to create a pile of loops, which can be further edited for timing and length. The whole array (up to 48 loops) can be exported with a single touch to LaunchPad for spontaneous jamming with control over levels and effects.

I lost count of how many apps I used for the loops. Korg Gadget, Groove Rider, Troublemaker, Arturia iMini, GeoShred, iProphet. iWavetable are some. I even played the Novation Circuit through AudioBus for a few of them.

My girlfriend Naya dropped by for a quick vocal sample. Check it out.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Liftoff

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Liftoff

Mars is looking better and better these days. Less noisy than Earth anyway.

And I hear the price on rockets is coming down. So that’s something.

The studio is still kind of a mess. But after the transition, I’ll be in a better position to do more spontaneous live streaming. Just in time for spring.

Check out this tune. Native Instruments Maschine MK3, Maschine Jam with sampled kits playing in sync via Link to MIDI with Groovebox (Ampify) on the iPad.

You gotta keep going.

DJ Mondo’s Valentines Day Gallery of Ex-Girlfriends: B’Hon the Emasculator

When you’re a cyborg adventurer like me, you meet a lot of people.

I met B’Hon and her lost tribe while I was investigating a series of disappearances near a forest up north. We hit it off after we took down an evil wizard together (he’s doing a stretch in an extra-dimensional prison right now). She even moved to the city so we could be closer.

This was fun at first, but her mistrust of technology became a real problem. She would grab a weapon and hide every time I turned on the TV. I’d have to calm her down. Refrigerators were a complete mystery to her. It all came to a head when, out of ignorance, she tried the slay a commuter train.

She eventually got homesick and I helped her pack.
