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!

“NOW added to the endangered species list in New York City, along with independent booksellers and shoe repair: the neighborhood record store…But the survivors aren’t giving up just yet. Saturday is Record Store Day, presented by a consortium of independent stores and trade groups, with hundreds of retailers in the United States and some overseas cranking up the volume a bit to draw back customers and to celebrate the culture of buying, selling and debating CDs and vinyl.” [Read More]

“TONY has it that Southpaw owner Matthew Roff, currently involved in the final stages of opening new Prospect Heights beer garden Franklin Park, plans to sign a lease tomorrow on the Galapagos space in Williamsburg.
The name: Natural Selection. “We’re all fans of Darwin, obviously,” says Roff, who will partner with the owners of popular South Slope watering hole Bar Four. “We were originally going to call it Madagascar—we are trying to have some continuity between “Natural Selection” and the new Galapagos.”
Roff plans to retain the location as a performance space, and tells us the transformation could be “weeks away.” Galapagos, as has been widely reported, will relocate to Dumbo sometime in 2009.”[TONY]
“The 4 a.m. closing time for bars and restaurants is facing its last call because community boards are approving liquor licenses for new establishments only if they close at 2 a.m., the city’s nightlife-industry officials say.
The new leadership of the State Liquor Authority, which grants the licenses, has formed an “unholy alliance” with the boards and is rubber-stamping their recommendations, the industry claims.” [Read More]
