BoBeats' Superbooth 19 Synth Vids, Straight from the Convention

Of all the YouTube synth heads making fun and educational videos about synthesizers and electronic music production, BoBeats is one of our absolute favorites. He's able to go deep without being pedantic, and his love of the instruments and the creative processes they open up is apparent in all of his videos.

For Superbooth 2019, we dispatched Mr. Beats to the Berlin synth show, to benefit from his personal explorations of the convention floor and the surrounding events. While he's playing the latest machines and talking with their builders, he'll be uploading videos to his YouTube channel, and we'll be sharing them here. Keep checking back to find his newest demos, reviews, and jams.

Korg Minilogue XD Module 8-Voice Poly Chain

Korg's new Minilogue XD Module offers the same 4-voice polyphony as the keyboard-equipped version released earlier this year. But in this video, Bo shows off one of its cooler functions—combining with another XD to create an 8-voice synthesizer.

Elektron Digitone Keys Review
