Kylie - an artist so massively famous, that she doesn’t even need her surname anymore. If someone says ‘Kylie’, conjuring up a mental image of the pint-sized pop princess is almost pavlovian by now. With an artist who has reinvented her look and style several times throughout her career, there are many options for your imagination to paint, from a rich tapestry spanning three decades of chart success.In the early 2000s, Kylie’s music took a turn towards an electronic club-focused influence, thanks to the tremendous success of 2001’s ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ relentlessly stomping its way across dance floors and firmly into our heads. Maintaining this ‘clubby’ feel while transitioning somewhere between electro-house and synth-pop, 2003 saw the release of Kylie’s all-time favourite song of hers; ‘Slow’.‘Slow’ took centre stage as the lead single from Kylie’s ninth studio album ‘Body Language’ - the eagerly anticipated follow up to the phenomenally popular prior release ‘Fever’ in 2001. Now with a total of 14 studio albums under her belt and touring almost every year, Kylie isn’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon, which is fine by us!Check out how to make the bass and arpeggio sounds from ‘Slow’ in DRC, and grab the project link to see them in action with the included MIDI clips.Click here to download the Ableton project fileEspecially for you,Team Imaginando

The track title ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ could almost be a testament to Nina Kraviz’ dedication and determination to succeed as a house/techno DJ and producer, in an undeniably male dominated industry. Kraviz early adventures into dance music saw her managing dental records by day and vinyl records by night, as she studied dentistry in Moscow whilst holding down a Friday night club residency.Released in 2010, ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ was one of Kraviz’ first tracks to make it outside of Russia, providing the exposure and publicity needed to make her mark on the international dance music scene. This was no easy task however, as Kraviz still had to fight hard to be taken seriously, speaking about this period of her career she says that ‘people were suspicious of a pretty woman making music on her own, with a vision.’That ‘vision’ is one that involves passionate and energetic performances whilst behind the decks, often mistaken as being intoxicated, her wild enthusiasm shines through. ‘People think I’m on drugs, but I’m not – I’m just really experiencing it’.In this week’s DRC Sound Design Tutorial we show you how to get the bass, keys and pad sounds for yourself from this funky little minimal track.Click here to download the Ableton project fileIt’s all about the music in our house,Team Imaginando
We're starting 2019 with something BIG for iOS music makers.Today we are incredibly excited and proud to announce that DRC on iOS now features AUv3 support! After months of hard work involving some difficult technical challenges, we're thrilled to have achieved one of our primary goals for DRC with this release.The iOS music production scene is growing faster than ever thanks to the possibilities of the AUv3 plugin format/standard, and now DRC is part of that revolution. We believe mobile music production software has the potential to be amazing, and today is a significant milestone accomplishment that puts us in a strong position for the future.This update is a big deal for us, and our customers too, as the most requested feature we've ever received, for any of our products.That's why we are thrilled to announce that AUv3 is part of DRC’s ‘Unlock Synth Engine’ in-app purchase. This enables us to provide the update to everyone who has already supported us at zero cost.This means that from today we have increased the price of ‘Unlock Synth Engine’ on iOS only, as we believe this is the fairest way for us to offset the hundreds of hours we spent making this happen!We are fortunate to have some very passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable beta testers out there; thank you to everyone who participated, you helped make our DRC AUv3 dream come true!For now, a maximum of 4 instances of DRC can be open at any time due to device memory constraints - something we plan to improve in the future.DRC 2.0.0 for iOS is available to download now from the App Store, for devices running iOS 10.3 or later. This release does not affect the Android or DRC for Desktop releases.As always, we welcome your feedback. If there's anything you want to let us know or discuss, please don't hesitate to get in touch via our website contact page. Also, If you haven't yet submitted a review of DRC on iTunes/Google Play, please consider doing so, we read and reply to every single one of them. Finally, if you have any creative projects of any kind using DRC that you want to share with us, we’d love to hear them!From Portugal with passion,Team Imaginando
