Review: can Elektron’s Model:Samples get everyone into hardware?

At about $400 street, with tons of hands-on control and simple samples, the Elektron Model:Samples has more in common with classic Japanese grooveboxes than the company’s flagships. So what’s it like to use? Here’s our review. This time, we turn to a new contributor – one who calls Elektron’s Gothenburg home, so we get that authentic Swedish touch. Andreas Roman is an accomplished content creator for the video game industry, an experienced tech journalist, and has a passion for music on the si...

Noise Cycle’s rad Street Rod 750 tracker gets a revamp

In the world of professional motorcycle racing, development is a constant grind. Hooligan flat track racing is the same. But here, the upgrades are done by racers and builders on tight budgets. Not massive teams of engineers with eighteen-wheeler trucks full of SnapOn tools. So we’re fascinated by the way Scott ‘T-Bone’ Jones of Noise Cycles has rebuilt his fire-breathing Street Rod 750 tracker. It’s the same 2017-spec XG750M he raced with last year—but it’s evolved radically since then. A...

Animal Farm. Purpose Built Moto’s Yamaha XT250 MX Scrambler

Written by Tom Gilroy When you mention a Yamaha XT to any bike enthusiast a few things come to mind. Yamaha’s XT series set the bar in off-road racing for a long time, and since then they’ve been synonymous with durability, performance and reliability. So of course, I have one rolled into the garage that looks anything but. Ex-farm bike. Rolling chassis, motor, box of parts and three words, “Make a scrambler.” The easy route would have been to mount a nice, rounded fender and a run-of-the-...

Fighting Talk: Harley design boss Brad Richards

Harley-Davidson is under a microscope right now: its every move is dissected, examined and critiqued. And there have been plenty of moves lately. They’ve killed the Dyna while relaunching the Softail. They’ve announced a barrage of new models, including the Livewire. But although revenue is holding up at the moment, sales figures have been declining for several years—and were down 10% in 2018. It’s a challenging time for the Motor Company. So I sat down in Milwaukee with Harley’s VP of Styl...

Tommy Armour Isn’t What You Think

This is how it typically goes with so-called House Brands – a large retailer pays $X for a familiar name, thinking it can make $X + a decent profit before letting it go the way of 8-track and fidget spinners. It’s not the worst business model, but often it amounts to little more than a prolonged liquidation. As long as the retailer makes can turn a decent short-term profit, it’s a win. That said, house brands rarely have a future; they’re the equivalent of scrap metal. This is where Tommy Armour...

NI Massive X synth sees first features, interface revealed

Native Instruments’ Massive synth defined a generation of soft synths and left a whole genre or two in its wake. But its sequel remains mysterious. Now the company is revealing some of what we can expect. First, temper your expectations: NI aren’t giving us any sound samples or more release details. (The company tells CDM they are still on track for a June release date.) What you do get to see, though, is some of what I got a preview of last fall. After a decade and a half, making a satisfy...

DOPE DIRIGIBLE. Kacerwagen’s ‘Zeppelina V72’ Board Tracker

Written by Martin Hodgson They were the original kings of the race track, but you won’t ever find a replica of one hanging out at your local cafe bike meet. However over recent years with TV shows like Harley and the Davidsons and Sons of Speed, along with the input of America’s best builders like Billy Lane and Rick Petko, the board tracker is back with a vengeance. But what do you do when you live in a country where finding a ’20s Indian in a barn is as likely as finding the fabled pot of g...

PIPEBURN INTERVIEW: Calum From DeBolex Finds Oil In The Blood

Written by Andrew Jones What’s better than a movie about motorcycles? If you answered, ‘A movie about custom motorcycles,” then you win the internets for today. Luckily for all of us, Englishman Gareth Roberts is way ahead of the curve. He’s been banging away on a rather epic project for the past three years he’s calling ‘Oil in the Blood’. And unlike those little YouTube ditties we’re all so used to, this one’s a proper cinema release that’s less MTV music video and more Gone With The Wind. ...

Feel the Illinoise: A DR-Z400 for the streets of Chicago

After releasing ‘The Sunshine State of Mind’ SR500 in 2016, Federal were bombarded with requests for a replica build. “But there’s no fun in building the same bike twice,” says lead builder Mike Müller. “We love the support, but we also want our clients to have a one-of-a-kind bike.” So Federal genera...
