I've become a big fan of Isotonik Studios' work - their Novation Circuit editor makes that hardware sing for me, and some of their innovative Max For Live work lights up that platform. We happened to follow each other on Facebook; when I reached out to him for a chat, he was into it - and here's the result.
One of the things I really like about the offerings from Isotonik is that they are varied, super useful (both the control and audio devices are innovative as hell), and come with excellent support from the team. So I wanted to know more about that team, what it takes to keep something like this moving forward, and how someone might use Max For Live as a commercial platform.
Darren's story, like so many others, is a unique path to a cool end-game; it isn't a straight line, but it is one that is driven by passion and a love of music-making. If you haven't tried any of Isotonik's work, you should check out their site:
And if you happen to be a Novation Circuit user, make sure you are checking out the new work they've been doing lately - many new options are now available, and different people (like my friend Mark Mosher) are finding that different versions work best for their particular systems. Cool stuff, that's for sure.
