Some interesting things I found on July 28th, 2008:
# “ohm” lo-fi cardboard sampler – “Ohm” is a series of electronic lo-fi noiseboxes/recorders made with laser cut grey cardboard.
The interface and the inner circuits are printed with a special conductive paint. By touching the printed surface the user can modify the sound in different ways.
# DIY Monome Clone – Julien Bayle uses an arduino board to create a Monome clone.
At the beginning, I would like to inspire me from the big MONODECK II made by Robert Henke. I explore the BIG and powerful MIDIbox.org community and the shop site associated ucapps.de, and I found a website about a very pretty and powerful interface: monome. But the monome was only a monochromatic leds & buttons matrix. As I didn’t choose anything, I decided to build my own hardware: a multicolored monome clone.
# Korg DS-10 demo video – YouTube user Denkitribe shows a "very serious virtual analog synth".
# Open Source GigaStudio Petition: Why It’s Unlikely – Peter Kirn on the future of GigaStudio now that TASCAM put everything giga in their legacy archive.
# vvvv Adds Music Features; Get Your Synesthesia Patching On, Free on Windows – vvvv, the free-for-non-commercial-use patching environment on Windows, already has a cult following among visualists. Now, it’s looking more interesting for music, too, with the 4.0 beta 17 release.
