Minilogue: Studio Jam Session

Minilogue jamming live in their studio, outside of Malmö, Sweden.

Korg sent me here. These aren't the droids I'm looking for..
Wow. I absolutely enjoyed every second of this. Beautiful session. But reading some of the comments really surprised me (well, maybe not actually). I can totally understand how it might not be everyones cup of tea given the loopy, progressing nature of the music, but bashing these guys for being boring, untallented or even comparing them to the soulless "muzac" from How it's made is to me so utterly ignorant. Making analogue gear like this sync up and work so fantastic together requires skills, dediction and experience. These guys have been doing their stuff since the 90s. Quite sure Korg wouldn't have named their Minilogue synthesizer after them if they weren't deeply respectable artists within their scene.

This music it's all about subtle nuances and detail. Buy better sound systems and maybe you'll understand

The majority of the negative commenters obviously didn't even give the music a chance. If you listen to it all the way through, it's a journey. It's not about doing a million things "with all that gear" in the first 10 seconds. It's about restraint. This is MINIMAL. And Minilogue are at the top of the game. If you don't like it, ok, cool, do it better or move on. And it's not even very much gear, lol. Btw, I watch this all the time. Love it. Thanks for making it and sharing, Ableton!

I'm not into this music but this is a masterpiece! And an amazing session! People that write shitty comments ignore one basic aspect of every art work:CONTEXT! Please educate yourselves. It's easy!

these guys are just having fun. sure, any of us can do this just a laptop, but they are just a couple of gear heads who are having a blast standing behind all that equipment doing what they're doing, so leave them be.
Bradley Keenan
Jesus Christ people are so jealous! These dudes killed it, and clearly enjoyed it!. They have built up that equipment over their entire careers. The music was good if you like the style, if you don't then why are you watching it? Go watch whatever you do like.
Seriously can't get that people point out so much how much gear they have (by the way it isnt even that much and they probably got all that analog gear at the end of the 90's when it was quite cheap). These guys have been doing this for a long time, and have developed different styles in trance and techno. They have been quite succesfull and toured the world. They have pretty much earned their gear working their ass off. Can't believe people being so jealous. And if you are better go and make your self a name and tour the world as this guys.
I think alot of people that is saying "They don't need that gear to make that sound" are missing the point. And actually some gear is needed to make certain sounds. Watch their setup video and understand that some sounds actually are analog. And everyone KNOWS that you don't need gear to make music on a computer. But everyone with gear knows that making music with gear and also playing music with gear is SO much more fun. And isn't that what it is about? That you have fun?

Am I the only one who recognized More Blues by Pink Floyd at 17:12?
That was excellent.
Roberto Facchini
Feel sorry for the people who don't get this. Incredible
My soul is shining

When you step into the temple and the God comes down, it isn't the best thing to care about the price of the building.

I hear lots of influences of Jean Michel Jarre, but this is the deepest side of dance Jarre never could have made, although he tried hard ...
Thank you Minilogue and Ableton for this and your software! i got the akai mpk 25 and ableton live lite 8 and i am having lots of fun with it it is definitely a process to learn but so many things you can do! i plan on getting the full version suite 9 and an 88 key keyboard midi probably the akai mpk, just getting into music making, i cant wait to be able to put something like this together and get it up on youtube and find out out to finalize it and find a way to get it on soundcloud and my ipod too thatd be so awesome to hear my own beats!
i watch this at least once a month

This was a great week to be a huge Minilogue fan.

Refreshing to see someone not just standing in front of a laptop with a mouse and 30 VST's
OMG!!! I love these guys!!
Peter Blanckaert

...the timing of the hi hat in the 7th minute followed by the synth work on the SH-101, was a joy to watch, along with the rest of the material of course. For those who can't appreciate it, don't judge things you don't understand so harshly. To the untrained ear, sure it may sound simple, and you're probably thinking ''all that equipment to make this?!' Well, this is their setup. Whether every bit of equipment is being used or not, it's their space to escape and jam..welcome to their humble abode. Technically yes, you could do everything these guys are doing using software like Fruity Loop, Ableton'll be very 'programmed' nonetheless, with many controllers too I'd imagine, but then that'll take to fun, and the human feel from no where near as fun and cool to play and watch. Realise this is pure musicianship, to be able to understand your instruments which is what's sitting there in front of them and play them amazingly. To know each component so well takes a lot of time to master them. Any musician knows and understands the frustrations of playing an instrument, to get good and comfortable with it, so I'm not gonna bother counting how many components are used in this setup, and frankly I couldn't care...the result is amazing. Look how comfortable they are jamming, that's when you know they've mastered this art...the timing of the clap at 19.25 was spot on..I'm actually writing this comment whilst listening to it throughout and am enjoying a journey! I'm sure at a rave or festival, the crowd would love this! So a suggestion, to really appreciate this, sit back, and listen, if you're not feeling it, then you're not feeling it...simple. If you think you can do better, you're more than welcome to step up to the plate and go for it, good luck to ya... Minilogue = Masters at work.
Stefan Neo
epic sound <3 Minilogue
Your dance is so great. This is a great dancer!!
I would love to hang out in the background with you guys, having a fancy drink and a jay and just enjoy your brilliant music. Your premises just look so convivial. :-)

Mr. Brillz
Their music reminds me of the How It's Made soundtrack. "It's important that the fleeb is rubbed, becasue the fleeb has all the fleeb juice"
flein fjes

Lando Gonzo
I didn't understand it at first. Not my cup of tea, at the moment. But I can totally see me putting this,on while painting or drawing.
Antonio Araujo
Their eye contact. The syncing. The small experiments, errors and roll backs. The camera angles. The space. The lighting. Simply humbly amazing.
Best music for coders like me!! thx
So to every of these 200 dislikes and contra comments: what have you done with your pirating software it worth to be on itunes or press on cd/vinyl: show it !

Its sunds pretty good, and the setup is amazing. But they could do a lot more in 20 minutes with all that stuff. Anyway great video!
David German
Pretty good music, no matter what they used, if they have the hardware,why not show it off? There is a lot of envy in this world! Keep it up guys:-) DAVID
They freaking sampled Pink Floyd, greatness!!
Diderich Langmannen
Simply great! Nothing more left to say.
Nice attic. Music is about 10 years old though!? Hey, liking the vibe with all the outboard gear, but, it sounds so old skool....? Respect the effort, recording, video, yadda yadda...... Bless.
Stuart McConaghy
This is so damn organic, this music is absolutely amazing. I watched the "As Human As Possible" video first, and after watching this I really get what they are all about. This is art at its finest.
MC Amalgam
