It’s that time of week again. Every Friday we trawl the net for the best production tools so you can spend more time focussing on your music. This week we’ve found a way to humanize your sequences, a whole stack of great racks and a monster mono bass synth. Enjoy!
If you’ve ever felt like you’re missing a little soul then this device can give your sequences the natural ebb and flow of a live performer. Based on research into the science of swing, the Humanizer randomizes your MIDI patterns, adding the subtle flaws and inconsistencies that are so important to a good groove.

Bass for Breakfast
Don’t let the odd name and wacky interface fool you – the Bacon and Eggs mono synth is a bass heavy tool with a few handy effects throw in for good measure. Apart from the usual set of sawtooth, square and triangle waveforms, we’ve got some complex filter / LFO combinations and a wicked flanger to draw more harmonics into the mix.
