Justin Lassen and Christopher Coppola meet and partner! :)

thumb_IMG_1508_1024

Right before GDC 2016 I had the privilege and honor to hang with the one and only Christopher Coppola to talk about future projects, speaking things, student projects and world travel, partnerships, etc. He showed me some of his favorite places and I even got to tour the school he teaches at, as well as a famous basement studio of a pizza shop in SF! Thank you Christopher!

We actually go back to 2 previous CES’s we did together in partnership with Intel, and earlier this year in January at CES 2016, we did a revolutionary 360 VR project together with Noa Neal, an awesome popstar/singer from Belgium! Excited about doing more stuff with this thoughtful and inspiring man!

Justin lassen and his Samson Go Mic Connect USB Microphone

Justin Lassen talks about his new Samson Go Mic Connect USB Microphone with Focused Pattern Technology™

I did a video review of the Samson Go Mic Connect for Samson’s Indiegogo campaign this month! Great portable mic and audio interface for sampling and recording on the go, with skype and even music applications! Love it!

thumb_IMG_1412_1024

I’ve also been enjoying these sweet Samson speakers and mics!

thumb_IMG_1413_1024

They work on Android too, which was pretty cool for several of my shows lately!

Justin Lassen with Roland Boutique Synths! Thanks Roland!

thumb_IMG_1173_1024

I’ve been playing with these amazing little battery powered synthesizers from Roland lately on projects and just reminiscing the early days of synthesis for me! If you’re even remotely interested in synthesis or history, you should check these out!

thumb_IMG_1176_1024

I love that you can daisy chain them together for really fun playing experiences, I’ve also been running them into FX plugins on my PC for various projects for fun. It’s amazing they are so compact and surprisingly powerful.

thumb_IMG_1172_1024

Each unit stands alone but you can raise the polyphony of them by chaining two of the same ones together.

The K-25M keyboard is actually interchangeable but I got 3 so I could keep them all up and running at once!

Noa Neal / Justin Lassen–Behind The Scenes at CES 2016 #Intel

CES 2016 was absolutely amazing, I love that I get the chance to work with artists from all over the world every year at Intel, and I’m so grateful to be chosen to represent music technology for Intel world-wide! In Vegas, pop star Noa Neal had a documentary crew following her around the show and behind the scenes of getting ready for the event, there’s even a shot of Nicholas Cage in the audience watching us rock a packed house! Thank you Noa Neal for all your great work in our collaboration this year!

Enjoy the documentary everyone!
