Some interesting things I found recently:

# Thingamaplush Robot

Instructables user jeff-o writes:

Inspired by Bleep Labs' Thingamakit and Thingamagoop synthesizer noise maker creations, I set about making a plush version for my two-year-old daughter. My goal was to create something that was safer and easier to use for her, while remaining just as fun and quirky as the original Thingama' synths.

# Pro Tools Minus the Hardware? Mackie Says New Mixers Support M-Powered; Q&A

Mackie Onyx-i to support M-Powered Pro Tools

When you want to use Pro Tools software you need Pro Tools hardware, right? Well, it seems Mackie’s new Onyx-i mixer series is going to break with tradition.

Peter Kirn has some details:

Without the cooperation of Avid, Mackie says they have managed to get their Onyx-i mixer line working with Pro Tools, and they’ll even “certify” compatibility. At the end of July, a number of audio sites (including Mix and Sonic State, but not CDM) received a package with one of Mackie’s new mixers, a video, and a copy of Pro Tools M-Powered. The message: a “secret” driver provided compatibility between Mackie’s mixer-audio interface package and Pro Tools.
