3 Reasons to Make It New Tonight

1. It’s free of charge before 11pm

Typically, when we bring in one or another world-renowned artists, costs can approach $20 (still relatively low!), but tonight is a great example of a time to invite your friends, your family, or, well, anyone to listen to the future sounds Baltimoroder and Coralcola can provide.

2. The sound system will be primed.

If you’ve not been to Make It New in a while, original resident, (and original Mmmmaven instructor) and audio engineer Baltimoroder has funneled his 13 years of experience at Middlesex Lounge and put it into the sounds system. Our advice? Stand at the back in the middle for the best audio experience.

3. The music will be fantastic

There’s a reason why Mikey and Erik have played Make It New for so long? Listen:

Ableton Live 10 Around the Web

If you’re doing it right, you already know that Ableton, the Berlin-based music software giant, has announced Live 10, the first major upgrade in the DAW in five years.

Here is what the web is saying:

  • Fact Magazine: “gigantic list of improvements” “the most significant change is that Max for Live is now fully integrated into Live” “new multi-channel audio routing capability for surround sound performances” “improved modulation”
  • The Verge: “a lot of new, notable changes to Live.” “One of the more exciting new features in Live 10 might be initially glossed over by many: Collections.” “at last, the option to export audio as .MP3.”
  • Engadget: “if you start playback mid-note, you won’t hear it — annoying for long strings sounds, for example. A new “Note chasing” feature solves that” “For those (like me) who seem to give their best performance while not recording, there’s ‘Capture.'”
  • DJ Mag: “At the top of the list is a new instrument called Wavetable” “a much needed new delay plugin Echo has been added” “the ability to edit multiple MIDI clips at once”

    Here’s some more information in Spanish and in German.

    Reverb.com even went so far as to create a playlist of some of the newest sounds you can make:

    #MakeItNew Mix Series #3: Lychee

    Having recently joined the #MakeItNew fray with an opening set in front of Objekt,
    Lychee has a party all their own: Visceral.

    With a partner-in-crime (and Mmmmaven grad!) Manv: “VISCERAL is a dance night that takes the audience on a journey through the sensuous and daring sounds of techno and beyond, to release inner impulses and desires into the void.”

    Their mission?

    Explore the audiovisual and experiential sides of VISCERAL by including mediums of expression that allow artists and creatives to display their work translated in primitive, raw and impulsive ways.

    Sounds like fun. Literally.

    Visceral also made Together 2017 waves playing with Kim Ann Foxman and Matrixxman. Lychee recorded this special set just for you. GET INTO IT:
