Looks like everyones favorite online electronic music production tool now has a new addition – the “Machiniste” Drum sampler allows you to create drum parts from a set of provided one shot hits and furthermore modulate their pitch and filter. As with other modules available within this superb online tool it also offers individual outs to allow you to route to external FX such as Delay, Reverb and Distortion.

Expect more new features to be added to the platform soon, especially since they have recently joined forces with Burn Studios to develop it further and have even brought in the likes of Richie Hawtin and Cassius to promote it.

Audiotool is free to use and can be found here


You know cloud based music production is getting serious when the likes of Richie Hawtin get behind it. The renowned DJ and music tech innovator unveiled Burn Studios new web based music production platform at ADE this year alongside Andre Michelle, who developed the superb flash based Audiotool web app that its based on.

Aside from bringing further development such as MIDI support and sample uploads to the Audiotool, Burn Studios  have already proven themselves to be on the pulse of electronic music through their work with existing artists such as Cassius and Uffie – the latter of which they are currently running a remix competition with. 

I think its likely their sound knowledge of electronic music scenes, coupled with a versatile and engaging platform like Audiotool means Burn Studios will see great success, especially since they have put a desire to introduce newcomers to music production at the heart of their plans.

The platform is due to be beta tested later this year with a planned release to the public early 2011 and as you’d expect I’ll be covering it as it evolves. You can read more about the platform on the Burn Studios site here

Something tells me we’ll be hearing a lot about Burn Studios in the coming months. Its a forthcoming online collaboration platform that offers music producers the chance to be part of a global production community and is being championed by two giants of electronic music – World Class DJ Richie Hawtin and legendary French producers Cassius.
Hawtin is due to properly unveil the cloud based production tools that Burn Studios will offer next week at the Amsterdam Dance Event but in the meantime the company has decided to whet our appetites with a competition (in collaboration with SoundCloud) to remix superb electro artist Uffie and are offering some great prizes in the form of load of M-Audio/Avid gear, a SoundCloud Pro Plus account and even a chance to hang out with the lady herself.
Log onto and download the remix parts. Complete your remix and upload back onto the site. Competition entry opens on 15 September and closes on 1 November 2010 at midday (GMT). The winning remixer will be notified by 15 November 2010.
