Julian Styles and Simon Colins interview

simon-julian-interview

Two years ago we interviewed musicians Julian Styles and Simon Collins – both endorsed by Ohm Force – but as it was the time when our website was experiencing his major upgrade and or old blog going slowly to the purgatory, this material ended to be lost in cosmos. But not anymore, as the duo has found it and recently posted it again at their website, so now you’ll be able to check it out.

Minimonsta review by german magazine Amazona.de

minimonsta-amazona

German music production magazine “Amazona” has posted an in-depth review of the Minimonsta:Melohman, which you can read here, automatically translated by some Google robots. But any german ohmfriend could help? Because we’re quite intrigued with the first phrase, that says that “Once the name appears, get all glassy Äuglein and wet hands.” ? Glassy “Auglein”? We are even afraid of imaging what body part they could be talking about. Anyway, 4 pages later, we’ve well understood the last words: “It says only one thing: If already a virtual-analog plug-in, then you should GForce / OhmForce MiniMonsta with the final choice.” No need to say that this article has made our day, thank you german Amazonas!

Moog Voyager vs. Minimonsta:Melohman

minimonsta-square

“Can the pupil overcome the master?”, one may ask. You’ll now be able to see with your own eyes and – specially – listen with your own ears: rhythminmind from the “Signal to Noize” blog posted an in-depth comparison between the real Moog Voyager hardware synth and our Minimonsta:Melohman virtual instrument. Listen to the 24bit samples of each waveform then take a look at the graphs….

Not in his name

petition

We’ve just received a mail from a british Ohm Force user sharing some…. hmmm.. impressions about Nick Griffin’s recent european electoral victory. We’re sorry Aidan, but we’ll not be able answer your mail, as religion, soccer and politics are three subjects strictly forbidden here at the office, otherwise we’d need to install metal detectors in our front door. So no hard feelings between us, ok?

A GreenWizzard’s Minimonsta Video Presentation

Seventh and last cohmpetition submission comes from Portugal, from the cave of the GreenWizard, who shares with the whole ohmworld how he prepares his Minimonsta:Melohman wizardry. In this ‘more like a tutorial’ video you’ll be able to see how he tweaks each parameter section of the synth, and specially finally understand  – seeing how it actually works – that the Melohman preset morphing feature is indeed MUCH easier to use than one could imagine, and obviously one of the most powerful synth tool you’ll have in your sonic arsenal.

“How i use my OHM-stuff” by Colin Stark

This time our german ohmfriend Colin Stark (you’ll probably remember him from our first video cohmpetition, one year ago) waited almost until the last minute to send us his most recent production. Now he shows how he personally uses his OhmBoyz, Ohmicide:Melohman and OhMyGod!. (Colin, you have indeed experienced some technical problem when rendering your video, as video speed is weird and there’s no sound at all. The HD version is not working neither. Please render/upload again and send us a new link as soon as possible!!!)

Venomeza’s Tips n’ Tricks for the Funky Ohmforce n00bie

Did you know that come from Guatemala the biggest ring modulation fans in the world? Miguel Zea aka Venomeza is  indeed one of them. “Reeeaally basic stuff made with some Ohmforce plugins for the Cohmpetition contest. This tutorial proves that Ohmforce plugins can go as deep as you’re ready to. Plugins used: Quad Frohmage, Predatohm, OhmBoyz & Cohmpost all in FLS” says the video description, and what we were able to see is that with some Ohm Force plugins and some evil feelings inside your head it’s possible to transform cheesy sounds into nice (and useful!) pieces of sound. Ok, not that useful if we talk about the Cohmpost part at the end of the video, but it’s never too much listening to all that horny cats…
