Check out this video clip featuring a couple of my tracks, from Winnipeg based VJ Duo, Onion Union.
From Onion Union:
It’s been a while since we’ve rocked your screens so get ready!
Teaming up with Chris Komus, we’ve combined our unique alpha channeled style that we’ve been working on in our solo projects together over the past few years. It’s sharp, it’s punchy and we are very proud of how it turned out!

W00t! Super stoked I can finally post this! Twisted Tools, one of my fave go-to plug-in solutions for sound-shenanigan mind-fuckery, has just released UltraLoop, which I’m super happy to have been a contributing sound designer for Enig’matik Records‘s contribution to the soundpack for the new plugin.
Twisted Tools have released ULTRALOOP, a first-of-its-kind loop remixing sampler with a fast and intuitive visual workflow for Native Instruments *Reaktor. ULTRALOOP combines advanced loop layering, comping, effect processing and automation techniques to generate new grooves, riffs and song ideas. You can use ULTRALOOP with the included factory sample library or to remix your own samples, injecting new life into any existing loop library.
ULTRALOOP is available now from the Twisted Tools Shop for $69. At the core of ULTRALOOP is an advanced loop layering engine and sequencer, capable of both layering and comping – a production technique that allows you to flip between layered tracks that are playing back simultaneously, by muting and un-muting slices of each layer. Up to eight tracks with loops of any BPM can be layered or comped together in real-time and can be further processed using the all-new Gestural FX engine.
The Gestural FX engine automatically generates dynamic effect movements that ramp and modulate over time, using a suite of creative effects designed to produce endless fills, articulations and variations. To create additional loops and variations, ULTRALOOP features and endless supply of randomization functions, connected to a unique Preset Grid system for each main parameter group. A Preset Grid allows you to store, recall and automate settings by using a dynamic memory grid made up of 17 slots that can be played on-the-fly. The settings for the entire instrument, including all the parameter Preset Grids can be stored and recalled in one of eight Global Scenes, allowing you to create infinite loop variations.
All the relevant instrument features can be played with live, without skipping a beat, by using a mouse, MIDI or OSC. ULTRALOOP comes bundled with various additional content, including an iPad *Lemur template by Antonio Blanca and a factory loop library by artists from Enig’matik, Loopmasters and Sounds of Revolution.
A series of Ultraloop Expansion Packs are available separately and feature loops and presets by artists such as Si Begg, Dusty Fungus and Chris Carter. *Reaktor Player not supported.
**iPad and Liine Lemur iPad App sold separately Pricing and availability ULTRALOOP is available from the Twisted Tools Shop for $69 Additional Expansion Loop Packs can be purchased for $19/each
