New crew blogger intro and MusikMesse report

posted by Kalle Paulsson 2012-03-23 at 23:47


My name is Kalle Paulsson, and I'm the new-ish Product Manager for Apps here at Propellerhead since August. Mattias has finally wore me down enough to write a crew blog update, and now that we announced Figure it's a whole lot easier too. :-)

I'll post more about Figure later. in the meanwhile, here are some photos from my first MusikMesse. It was a fantastic experience!

(Feel free to follow me on Twitter for more real time updates on all things me, mobile and Figure: @kallepa)

Leo is falling asleep while rehearsing his Figure performance on the plane.

You can't get Mats on photo without a pose. It's like he's always ready to strike!

Magnus Lidström (Sonic Charge) makes some last minute changes to something.

The night after the press conference was spent in the hotel bar reading forums, checking Twitter and Facebook for comments. Tage gets something in the eye.

The next day was spent at the Messe. High amounts of synths and knobs will follow.

Nice modular cabinet.

Doepfer Dark Energy and Time. The leftmost one is a prototype Dark Energy II.

Leo really wanted to buy this sofa, but it was a one-off thing.

The Minitaur shook our bones with subwoofery bass.

This guy was silently drumming very loudly and aggressively. But silently.

Three crepes for lunch. Geschwipt!

Tage and Tim wasn't sure about the nutritional benefits of my three crepe lunch.

Nice controllers from Livid.

In the Synthesizer Magazine booth there was much vintage fun to be had.

Also digital PPG waveform thingies with huge diskettes with almost no storage at all. Those where the days!

This makes a perfect campfire instrument!

The Reactable table environment is a lot of fun to play with!

And then, guitars. Lots of guitars. Huge amounts of guitars.

Yamaha are so huge, they have a hall all to themselves.

This arena was a booth for a event tech company. We were treated to a huge arena tech demo of epic proportions!

Then Leo beamed back to the Enterprise.

This is some drummers wet dream. Or some drummers actual cymbal setup, not sure.

Tage is checking out the latest cutting edge synthesizer from Casio.

Buchla. Amazingly beautiful, insanely expensive. We could only make it go "bleepblorpfrrztutloop".

The huge Doepfer A-100. We could make go "GDRAWPtut".

This huge kinetic statue saw us off when our first and last day of MusikMesse 2012 was over. Thank you, see you next year!

Ryan, I do have some more photos of your sleep deprivated nose.

A shame if I should slip on the publish button, no?

@Kallepa Yeah I think we'll let those photos go into a secret archive and never get seen by humans until thousands of years later when our new alien overlords from Zorbot 12 stumble upon them and decide that however I look in those photos is how modern man looked in the 21st century. Much the way we have based our entire conception of early neanderthal man off that one weirdo with the sloping forehead and the underbyte. ;)

Ryan - I was in in-school suspension in high school one day and was sitting there paging though the dictionary. Stumbled across a photo of one of the gym teachers in there under the heading "neanderthal man."

Those modular synths are asking to blow a circuit. People are over utilizing the pots. It's not supposed to have so many cables in them. It fries.
