IK Multimedia announces MODO BASS

MODO BASS is the first physical modelling virtual bass instrument that gives players and producers limitless bass sound possibilities and a new world of unmatched realism and playability for ultra-realistic tracks

IK Multimedia announced MODO BASS, a breakthrough physical modelling technology that brings a completely new level of realism and playability to the world of virtual bass instruments. MODO BASS is a completely customisable physically modelled virtual bass that recreates the electric bass and how it's played - from the physical instrument and everything that makes it sound the way it does, to the human technique of how the instrument is played and its sonic performance, to the entire sound signal chain - no detail is left out.

This pioneering approach to virtual instrument technology recreates the dynamic interaction between the player, the bass, effects chain and amplifier that until now has never been realized nor recreated with traditional virtual instruments. This intense evaluation and modelling process gives players and producers access to a limitless universe of bass sound, an unmatched level of playability and the most realistic, lifelike sounding dynamic performance. No other bass virtual instrument can even come close to offering what MODO BASS provides.

Eight years in the making and developed in collaboration with one of Europe's oldest universities, MODO BASS utilizes a breakthrough technology to breathe life into bass tracks. Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO BASS utilizes modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to model each string as a nonlinear resonator where the string's acoustic behaviour is determined by its physical parameters as well as by the interaction of the string with fretboard, body and pick-ups of the instrument. The action of the player is then modelled as a nonlinear physical interaction with certain areas on the string surface. Then using IK's cutting edge analog modelling expertise, the amp and effects rig of the electric bass is added to the sound chain.

All of this gives MODO BASS the ability to create sound in real time based on the construction and components of the bass combined with the player technique, finesse and the ever-changing dynamic interactions between the two. In short, MODO BASS brings - for the first time - ever-changing, hyper-realistic, living-breathing bass sound and performance to the world of virtual instruments. And since it doesn't use samples, MODO BASS has an extremely small memory footprint.

Virtually every electric bass sound

The foundation of MODO BASS is a collection of 12 physically modelled iconic electric basses that span the history of bass sound in recorded music - more bass models than available in most other virtual instruments. Bass models include "60s P-Bass" based on an Alder body 60s era Fender Precision Bass®, "70's P-Bass" based on an Ash body Fender Precision Bass®, "70's J-Bass" based on an Alder body Fender Jazz Bass®; "Modern J-Bass" based on an Ash body Fender Jazz Bass®, "Devil Bass" based on Gibson® EB-0; "Bass Man 5" based on Music Man® StingRay 5-string; "Rick n' Bass" based on Rickenbacker® 4003; "Studio Bass" based on Yamaha® RB5; "Violin Bass" based on a Hofner® Violin Bass, "Thunder Bass" based on a Gibson® Thunderbird, "Japan Bass" based on an Ibanez® Soundgear, and "Flame Bass" based on Warwick® Streamer.

Every detail of each bass has been meticulously analysed and modelled to capture the true sonic character of the original basses - the shape and type, the wood used for the body and neck construction, the hardware components like bridge and tuners, the original onboard electronics and controls - every aspect and detail has been modelled and recreated to provide the highest degree of sonic authenticity of the original. But the sounds available with MODO BASS extend far beyond the 12 modelled basses; with the available customisation features, users can craft virtually every electric bass sound imaginable.

Customised, ever-changing sound

MODO BASS is able to produce an unlimited palette of bass sounds because everything can be customised. Unlike other bass instruments, users are able to adjust and personalize each aspect of the instrument that contributes to its tone profile - playing style, strings, pickups, pickup placement, electronics, tone settings, action, stomp box effects and amp settings. The combination of these customisation options opens up a limitless universe of bass sound covering every imaginable and desirable tone. And just like a real bass player, every expression and interaction with the instrument will be unique.

Pluck, Slap or Pick - modelled playing styles

Once the bass instrument has been selected, players choose from 3 playing styles - pluck, slap or pick - and control how each playing style influences the tone of the instrument; the force applied to the strings, the position of the hand, the direction of the stroke, the fingers used to play the instrument and how the strings are approached, the impact of the thumb slap and the finger pull on the string and even the thickness of the pick and style of its attack. Every aspect of playing style has been studied and modelled to provide its unique impact on tone.

String Customisation

The strings are one of the most important contributors to tone, so IK painstakingly studied and recreated all of the factors that affect it. Players can choose the number of strings to define the tonal range of the bass, the construction type and material of the strings (round or flat wound), the gauge and age of the strings, plus the physical action height of the strings above the fretboard. Each of these options contributes its own character to the output of the bass and introduces realism never before heard in a virtual instrument.

Custom pickup configuration

Players can also completely customise the onboard electronics of the bass. There are 20 iconic bass pickups from which to choose that can be freely interchanged and added to the instrument - up to 2 pickups per bass. Users can change the type of pickups used, neck or bridge single coil or humbuckers, and their physical location under the strings can be moved freely for unlimited playing and tonal variations - a feature virtually impossible in the physical world. Each pickup has its own volume control and is also controlled by a global tone control. MODO BASS also gives players the ability to mix in the sound of an under-bridge piezo pickup for added resonance and top end. Switching from Passive to Active electronics option also enables a 3-band parametric EQ to fine-tune the pickup output tone.

FX and Amplifier choices

With MODO BASS, players have full control over the signal path and get 7 bass stomp boxes and two classic bass amplifiers derived from IK's AmpliTube flagship software. Stomp box effects include an Octaver, Distortion, Chorus, Compressor, Delay, Envelope Filter or Graphic EQ. Each stomp box gives players full control over the effect applied to the signal, parameter adjustment and overall output volume into the next effect.

Players can also choose from a classic all-tube amplifier and 1x15 cab, or a powerhouse solid-state model with a 4x10 cab. Each amp provides full control over gain structure, EQ (with mid-frequency adjustment on the tube amp), and additional fine-tuning options with a graphic EQ. There is also a global bypass feature that allows for bass signal routing from MODO BASS into another amp effects modelling suite like IK's AmpliTube Custom Shop, opening up a whole new world of sonic options for bass tone shaping and effects.

Totally controllable in real time

MODO BASS also provides MIDI control of critical parameters that can be automated in real time. With the MIDI Control section, players control and adjust the application of vibrato, the playing style, the application of Mute technique and the amount of slide technique applied while playing. The frequency of the vibrato, the amount of the bend, plus the amount of slide and detach noise while playing can all be controlled in real time on the fly.

Keyswitching in MODO BASS allows players to switch on the fly between chord mode and note mode, the type of stroke used for playing, the fingers used and the method of playing, which provides the ability to completely customise the sound in real time.

Pricing and availability

MODO BASS will be available in November, 2016 for $/€299.99 and $/€199.99 crossgrade price.MODO BASS for Mac/PC is available now for pre-order from the IK Online store at a special introductory price of only $/€149.99

Herman Miller Aeron - The iconic office chair, remastered

HEXA - An all-terrain hexapod robot

Hexa is an all-terrain hexapod robot. It fits in a backpack. It have a variety of sensors, an open operating system, and an easy-to-use SDK.

An insect’s six legs represent one of the most classical and practical systems on earth — providing them with the unmatched ability to go virtually everywhere. You might know them as hexapods. As you can see, we're a fan of this system. It is what allows HEXA to move about and adapt to all surfaces, all the time. We're also a fan of the name, of course.

Always face forward.

Infinite Rotation Structure: HEXA's six insect-like legs allow it to seamlessly rotate in any direction. Its round body design allows its head to rotate around a center shaft. The result, no matter which way HEXA faces or goes, that's forward.

Compute and think.

The dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, plus multiple co-processors, deliver outstanding computing ability. It supports image, video, face, voice recognition, and machine learning algorithms that deliver the unique ability to intelligently adapt to almost any situation.

Its eyes are your eyes.

HEXA's eyes (the camera) support image recognition in order to decipher humans, pets or any other object. It can even distinguish between its owner and strangers. The image it sees is directly transmitted to the display on your mobile phone and VR headset, etc. So what it sees, you see - allowing you to explore places you would not normally be able to go. Night vision is also supported.

It’s not magic. It’s infrared.

HEXA comes equipped with an infrared light that allows it to control all infrared home electronics (TV and AC, etc.). All it needs to do is learn the corresponding codes. This same light can also be used to provide light for the camera in dark environments.

Bats rely on sonar. HEXA prefers laser.
The built-in distance measuring sensor provides HEXA with the ability to measure between 4–60in (10–150cm). This function not only allows it to sense depth of field, it can literally sense the space around it. Or in other words, you never have to worry about HEXA hitting a wall while in automatic mode.

Inspired by the human cochlea.
HEXA doesn't have a cochlea, but it does have an equally impressive 3-axis accelerometer. It's what allows it to maintain balance and stability on complicated surfaces. It's what prevents it from falling off those surfaces.

Occasionally, HEXA must rest.

A wireless charging solution, combined with its ability to automatically return (if installed), brings HEXA back to its charging station when the battery level becomes critically low.

Plug in.

The rich HEXA hardware interface is fully customizable: USB, audio, I2C, ADC, GPIO and 5V/3.3V power output.

Reach HEXA on your mobile.

Through HEXA App, you can remotely control your HEXA from your mobile phone. You can explore the world through HEXA's eyes. You can connect to it when you are on another continent via the Internet.

Complicated moves. Simply made.

You don't have to know a thing about programming to program HEXA's moves. Through the HEXA Simulator, you can simply move your mouse around to design and create all sorts of complicated moves. And then, sync to your HEXA with just one click.

Travel Blogging How To Make Money

Travel Blogger is very interesting and perspective job.

Don't become complacent a great deal of top travel bloggers have gotten complacent this past calendar year, based on their reputation and numbers to receive them where they would like to go. If you prefer to be a thriving travel blogger, you've got to locate your purpose and become an authority on something so that individuals trust exactly what you say. Many successful bloggers think that the best method to both thrive and keep a degree of professionalism is to maintain the concentrate on the reader. This article provides you a breakdown of the most frequent costs besides the ticket price.

Don't be self-centered in regards to your writing. Just like with any writing endeavor, there'll be occasions when you're trying your hardest and nobody would like to hire you or publish your work. After all, it's a weird job.

What the In-Crowd Won't Tell You About Travel Blogger

For obtaining a step closer to the actual city of Ahmedabad, one should have an insight into a few of its very best places and below mentioned are a number of them. Should youn't have the passion for it, zero worries, ensure it remains casual. In addition, it boasts a great long six hour battery life, something which is very important to the individual on the go. That's just the essence of the publishing market. I wish to list a number of the wonderful attractions that Marina Bay Sands Resorts offers. It is a must-see, although you may not have an opportunity to have a dip in the pool.

While guest posting on bigger blogs is a great means to get new readers initially, it isn't really that effective. There's a great deal of room for every one of us on the world wide web. This will cause you to get comfortable and you'll also relish your stay in Rajasthan. If you prefer a peaceful trip with no hassles, then selecting a dependable Rajasthan tour operator is also a great option for you.

Both the conventional pottery patterns in addition to the contemporary designs go places in the more recent times.

The structure was constructed to provide Muslim devotees somewhere to congregate for Friday prayers. Now if you want outdoor activities, then don't neglect to go to the French Alps. Snow activities aren't the one thing you can do on your trip to the French Alps. I know very well that it may be a challenging job to calculate total expenses of a flight, for instance, hidden ones. But off in the distance, there's the sublime aim.

Like months ahead of time if you're able to progress.

The bank would like to keep money safe and if it by chance does see a suspicious transaction there's a good possibility it will want to contact you to try to verify it. In fact, if you believe that you do not have sufficient money, there are means to secure more. The sole difference is this on is unquestionably the sturdiest.

Nintendo's unveils Switch, New console/tablet hybrid that connects to HDTV

In an introductory video released today (http://www.nintendo.com/switch), Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”
