welcome to E_T Z4 ... an attempt at providing help when it can't be found. So now you can finally dust off your expensively over-sized paperweight and maybe actually make the seemingly broken blighter work...

THE FACTS 
versus the nonsense 

The Pacemaker app seems unfinished despite the Playbook being claimed to be custom designed for it...(... but what if)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 In : accessories 


I was already gutted that my original Pacemaker device had died on me, but rather than mourn it's passing into expensive paperweight status I thought it was just time to move on to pastures new and familiarize myself with the Pacemaker app on a Blackberry Playbook. The only problem was from what I just saw of a beta version of the Pacemaker app running on the Playbook, there seems to be quite a lot of Latency delay in the demo version. There was virtually none at all with the original Pacemak...

Z-4 urban flava - KORG Z-4 Mixer Tatsuki demo of near zero analogue to digital latency in Traktor

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 In : DVS 


By no means am I any kind of scratch DJ despite my tactile turntable pleasure guilt, but away from my more Ableton centric uses for my mixer these days this is what others do with its on board near zero latency audio interface using Traktor DVS.

Z-4's built in Master MIDI clock generator and control

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 In : Korg Zero 4 midi 

 
One of the original draws of the Zero 4 and zero 8 mixers was the inclusion of a Master global midi clock generator and control section built into the actual mixer.  I generally found it to be a very tidy solution for chaining and syncing multiple midi devices/instruments that needed to be kept in sync with a setup. 

The presence of the MIDI clock generator control section on the mixer is intuitively implemented through what would normally be used for auto BPM counter/BPM sync and adjustment ...

Swan custom KORG Z-4 flight case

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 In : accessories 

 
With production having being halted on the Z-4 long ago it might be wise to invest is some sort of protection. The Korg bag is just crap for want of a better expression. With temperamental pots and twitchy audio cutting selector switches it looks like its going to need something a little more robust if its going to last another 7 years. But who better then long time makers of all things flight like for music gear Swan to pick up where specialist NY flight case makers left off. From what I ca...

Corrupted Ableton projects "unknown compound stream type"

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, October 26, 2012 In : Ableton 
[Unknown Compound Stream Type]
 

 This happens all too often in Ableton at the most inopportune times. Usually 2 or 3 times on each new version of live that I've used. But more often then not its accompanied with the notice of the saved live set having been opened in a newer version of Ableton live. The odd thing is that the corrupted saved set in question every time its happened has only ever been used in the one version of Ableton live and no other. It even happens without any use of any kind...

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, October 25, 2012 In : Ableton 

 
Having reverted back to Windows 7 for Ableton Digital Audio Workstation antics things weren't looking too optimistic with the gradual decline of windows 7 as the bed operating system on my audio machine since its release. Even all the DAW tweaking and system streamlining tips and tricks in the book known to man couldn't help its fall  into a stuttering and audio dropping mess anymore. Then on the off chance of testing it with a few different preview builds of Windows 8 it actually began to l...
