In October 2017 G and eorge Lazenbleep and Medallion Man headed to Dresden, for the Circuitcontrol festival, a week of hacking, soldering and live performance. In the first of a series of articles from the festival, we met up with Jacob Korn. I won’t talk about his recording career, as I’m much more interested in his work as an engineer. We met 4 years ago in Dresden, and I remember spending an evening together geeking out about an 808 kick drum circuit I built. We talked about his 909 at the time, and I…read more
Egal ob Musik auf Vinyl, Fotos per Sofortbildkamera oder Brettspiele: Analoge Produkte erleben gerade eine Renaissance. Woher kommt die plötzliche Sehnsucht nach dem Analogen und wo in unserer digitalisierten Gesellschaft hat es noch seinen Platz? Auch in der Musik ist der Analog-Trend angekommen, selbst in eher unerwarteten Genres: Der Dresdner Musiker Jacob Korn produziert seine Elektro-Musik fast ausschließlich mit analogen Synthesizern. Er schwört auf den unverwechselbaren Klang der jahrzehntealten Sammlerstücke und nimmt dafür auch die umständliche Handhabung in Kauf. xenius-JK-cut Land : Deutschland, Jahr : 2017, Herkunft : WDR
Looking for a real 808 since ever and finally got it (and modified it as well:)) Here is the A/B comparison. L is the Original 808 and R is Yocto. Tempo 130 for setting up loops in your DAW. Enjoy.

This lovely Linn drum/DMX/Drumtrak sounding drum machine with 24 sounds and a lot of interesting preset rhythms and fill/break variations. the programming is fantastic and uses a very lively feel (they call it a built-in humanizer function). I added an 8ch output multicore cable for arranging and mixing down those instrument groups in a more flexible way.
The Uncanny Valley regular talks us through his favorite machines. The shaping and development of music taste will in most instances be an ongoing, infinite quest. After all, inspiration can strike at any time, in all variety of forms. It’s a sentiment that is even more true when it comes to actually making music. The spectrum of styles that have come out of Jacob Korn’s studio is testament to this: the German producer has dabbled in a bit of everything over the years. Earlier in his career, Korn pushed out…read more
Presenting the next episode in our short film series Analogue, a profile of the musicians whose love affair with analogue sound has come to define the way they work. Growing up in Dresden in the ’80s and ’90s with an ear for Kraftwerk and early techno, it’s no surprise Jacob Korn developed something of an obsession with synths. Whether taking apart his own gear, or modding others to extract new sounds, he is a producer who takes a hands-on approach to making music, revelling in the systems and simplicities of…read more
German house and techno don Jacob Korn goes Against The Clock. Jacob Korn has been blending techno, hip-hop and jazz since he went under the name Granufunk, but it’s his sample-heavy productions as part of Dresden’s Uncanny Valley crew that earned him his status as one of Germany’s best house producers. In his Against The Clock session he shows us some of the studio magic that’s earned him releases on Running Back, Permanent Vacation and Steffi’s Dolly Label, laying down a peak time house track in under 10 minutes that blends the best…read more
