Fresh Beets - MIDI Fruit And Veg With Novation

By Hugh McKenna

There have been some creative uses of professional MIDI controllers over the years but this one might just trump them all. With an aubergine as a kick drum, bunch of grapes as bells and a carrot strapped to a record turntable we guarantee this is unusual but inspirational performance.



Novation SL25 MkIIWhile it appears the main samples and sounds are being triggered with fruit in combination with JView's electronic thingymajig (technical term) he is also performing some neat live tweaks using his Novation SL25 MKII. Using Novation's handy Automap feature you can easily get a handle on multiple effect parameters and make some wild sounds like JView. It sounds to us like there might be some Beat Repeat from Ableton Live and certainly a delay in there too.

Slightly more versatile and easy to use than vegetables and certainly more hard-wearing would be a nice setup of pads for tapping out rhythms. Novation's range of Impulse controllers have Ableton integration, Automap, Back lit pads and a piano style keyboard.
