A short sneak peek form the new NI Massive presets collection we are working on! Stay tuned!
Yes, we’ve got a new logo! Mr. Piggy is really happy with it, we are really happy, and we hope you are happy with it!! Let us know what do you think about it!
Thanks to our good friends at Capicua for the design!
So, Mr. Piggy -whom some day you will finally know- decided that it was a good idea to post some of our latest work every month, so, we start today with some of May’s work!
Hold The Line Trailer
Here, we did all SFX, Foley and Ambience sound design. Hope you like it and support the short film!
Cablevisión Uruguay – Mother’s day
Here, we’ve recorded and mixed this radio spot for mother’s days in Uruguay. Also, the music comes from our piggy music library vol I
Backwards – Short film
So, for this film that’s now being screened on festivals, we did all foley. If you want to see the film, maybe, there’s a festival near you that will screen it… Check out the movie’s facebook oficial fan page to check dates and places.
Today we bring you a very interesting tutorial, specially for those who use CoreMidi apps in your iPads, iPhones or iPods touch.
It’s about sending and receiving MIDI between Mac OSX and iOS apps in order to integrate your iDevice into your DAW, and even use an external MIDI controller.
1-First step: Be sure your Mac and your iDevice are on the same WiFi Network; if you happen to be somewhere where’s no WiFi network available, you can always create one on your Mac. To do that: Airport-> Create network
2- Once we’ve got both devices on the same network, we should open in our iDevice the app we wish to use.
3- Then, back to the mac, we need to open AudioMidi Setup. To do so: Applications-> Utilities-> AudioMidi Setup
5-Once opened, it will show us every MIDI connections we’ve got. As we see in the picture next, besides all synths, interfaces, controllers, etc, it should appear a Network item. We will double-click that icon and get to the next step.
6- A new pop-up window should be opened. First, we’ll go to My Sessions, and create a new session, with the + button right under de dialog box. The Bonjour name on the right, should be the name of our Mac (this is done automatically by default)
Our iDevice should be appearing on Directory and a connect button below the box that we need to connect, and there we are! BTW, it’s pretty important that we give permission to Anyone or Computers on my Network on the menu below.
*Note: if we don’t have any CoreMidi app running on our iDevice, this won’t connect. You must open the app before connecting.
In some DAWs like Ableton, we can also sync tempo over WiFi.
Try it at home, and have fun!!

Original score for the short animation movie O Ladrão de brinquedos. Enjoy!
Hey! we all love the Korg Monotron Delay. It’s warm, it’s dirty, it’s analog, and it’s great for making weird noises and SFX, but how about playing it in a more musical way? well… with four octaves range and a 5 cms ribbon controller, it’s almost imposible to play any melodies… unless you could quantize it’s pitch… and that’s exactly what we did in this short clip. We’ve used Autotune to quantize the monotron delay’s pitch, in this case, we just used the A minor pentatonic scale, and this is the result of this funky improvisation!! The groove was made using toontrack for drums, DSI Mopho for bass (through a bass amp and cabinet) and Nord Electro 3 clavinet with Autowah through a fender tube guitar amp. Enjoy, and try it at home!!!
Hey!!! we are proud to introduce our Piggy Music Library VOL IV
Listen to the demos!
Hey! We’ve decided to create a short audio story just with music and sound design (does that exist?). Anyway…we have created a 2-minutes-five-parts story, and for that, we’ve used our SFX libraries, and created some nice and expressive small orchestra score. We did really enjoy ourselves while doing this, and we hope you like it too!! If you do, please share! Thx!! enjoy!
IV- The encounter
