Micah Frank is the founder of Puremagnetik, a sound design studio that takes a unique approach to developing and delivering original content to DJ’s and producers all over the world. They recently settled into a custom-built production facility in Brooklyn’s artist and technology friendly neighborhood Dumbo, NYC where we had the chance to sit down with Micah for a brief interview!
What platforms does Puremagnetik develop content for?
MF: We develop sample and sound libraries for Ableton Live, Kontakt, Logic and GarageBand. We also make DJ Tools that are available on Beatport.com as regular .wav file downloads. We’re trying to find someone to develop a native proprietary plug-in that will run all of our sounds in any DAW. I challenge someone in New York to make a native plug-in for us!
dailysession.com spent Saturday broadcasting the festivities from Halcyon’s Record Store Day block party in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The event was an undeniable success with beautiful weather and a store packed with people celebrating the vital role that Halcyon and other record stores play in our local communities. Halcyon’s own DJ A. Frog opened up the festivities with his delicious blend of treats followed by Amir and DJ Too Tuff who kept things rolling in traditional block party fashion! Of course, we captured the entire thing and have all three sets archived for your listening pleasure. Check them out below or in the Radio Archives. Enjoy!
