# Dual SP0256 Vocal Synth

Eric Archer on his new dual SP0256 vocal synth:

The Dual SP0256 vocal synthesizer is the descendant of an earlier circuit of mine, Analog Controlled Speech Synthesizer. I crammed in all the features I’d want from a singing robot. It was a good challenge because it inspired some analytical thinking about the relationship between speech and singing.

The features of this circuit are:

  • 2 trigger inputs to step through pitch and vocal sequences independently
  • speech data stored cartridge-style on EPROM
  • 2-oscillator richness using dual SP0256-AL2 speech chips with crossfade mixer
  • optimized low-pass filtering for less strident tone
  • SP0256 crystal oscillators replaced with VCOs for pitch control
  • each chip has an independent / linkable 4-step analog step sequencer for pitch
  • lower step sequencer has switchable clock divider (divide/2 to divide/16)
  • glide and LFO functions
  • speech rate (slur) control
  • built-in realtime programmable sequencers for pitch and speech trigger
  • IR Sync input for wireless infrared tempo matching

# Can you hear like an audio engineer?

From NoiseAddicts:

Hello, my name is Matt. I record, edit, and mix music for a living. My profession requires an extremely discerning ear. This little listening test is to see if you can pick up subtle differences in pitch.

# Shruti-1: DIY Digital Synth with Vintage Filter, as Dev Turns from Palm to Hardware

Peter Kirn writes:

For all the hype around mobile music creation, here’s a story with an ending in the opposite direction. Independent developer Olivier Gillet is the reason a lot of people see handheld gadgets as potential music making devices; he’s the creator of the brilliant Bhajis Loops for Palm. But, as if to prove that hardware can be a digital platform, too, his latest creation, while it will fit in your palm, isn’t for a device like the overcrowded iPhone.

# Sonic Wire Sculptor 2010

Sonic Wire Sculptor is based on a musical instrument by Amit Pitaru which has been shown in museums and galleries world wide. A great effort has been placed in reworking the app to take advantage of the the iPhone's unique audio and input capabilities. The Sonic Wire Sculptor turns your 3D drawing into sound. It introduces a simple yet deep connection between visual and audio composition.

# Golden REAKTOR VOSIM

John Fisher has released a free VOSIM synth for Reaktor.

Well, for all you poor bastards who don’t own a G2 modular, and can’t use the VOSIM patch I made for mine, I have put together a VOSIM patch in Reaktor. Actually, part of the reason I made it was just to implement some features I couldn’t get in the G2, and because I thought it might sound different in reaktor.

Behringer announces Virtualizer Pro 3D FX2000

Behringer has announced the Virtualizer Pro 3D FX2000, a high-performance 3D multi-engine effects processor with Real Sound Modeling technology.

Effects options include 12 different reverb programs, modulation, amp simulation, distortion and special effects, as well as dynamic and psychoacoustic processing. Performance is further enhanced through user-addressable high and low EQ and wave-adaptive VIRTUAL ROOM reverb algorithms. Logical grouping of parameters, along with the combination of encoders, buttons, LEDs and an easily readable LED display, are included for intuitive operation.

Behringer Virtualizer Pro 3D FX2000

Virtualizer Pro 3D FX2000 features

  • 71 breathtaking new algorithms—true RSM (Real Sound Modeling) stereo and 3D effects.
  • Wave-adaptive virtual Room reverb algorithms for natural reverb and delay.
  • Awesome modulation, dynamic, psychoacoustic and EQ algorithms.
  • Authentic amp simulation, distortion and special effects.
  • 11 effect combinations with selectable serial / parallel configuration.

# little-scale: Multiplexing MIDI Output Streams with Arduino

Sebastian Tomczak writes:

Arduino can easily generate MIDI output data for use with external synths and modules or to take physical events and turn them into control data for use with software synths and applications etc.

Although the Arduino only has one Serial output, it is still possible to use a multiplexer to send multiple streams of MIDI data to multiple devices.

The idea is pretty simple. The Arduino still uses its TX pin for sending serial data, but uses an analog multiplexer to choose where that data is going (say, one of two MIDI outputs for example). The analog multiplexer that I have chosen is a 4051 and can 'route' the data to up to eight different places.

PIC_MIDI

# PIC_MIDI

Giancarlo Todone of nerds’ headquarter posts introduces to PIC_MIDI, a homebrew solution for converting an old keyboard to MIDI.

An "open" electronic project involving a Microchip PIC 18F452, two simple and cheap de-mux 74hc138, a bunch of passive components and some software to build a MIDI master keyboard controller supporting velocity, continuous controller handling and strict adherence to MIDI protocol. Ease of setup and cheapness of required parts make this project suitable for intermediate hobbists, while technical specs such as low latency and high sensitivity to note-velocity make the device desirable for all musicians and DIY enthusiasts having an old keyboard lying around. EAGLE CAD schematics allow for quick circuit understanding and assisted production of custom PCB, while simple MikroC PIC code provides additional customizability in circuit's behaviour.

DIS.PLAY Impress

# DIS.PLAY » Blog Archive » Final documentation: Impress

Impress is the deliverance of the touch screen from its technical stiffness, coldness and rigidity. It breaks the distance in the relationship of human and technology, because it is not any longer the user which is subjected to technology, but in this case the display itself has to cave in to the human. Impress is a chance of approach of user and technology, above all, from technology.

It is a matter of a flexible display consisting of foam and force sensors which is deformable and feels pleasantly soft. Impress works with the parameters position and time like other touch screens as well, but in addition to that, it reacts, above all, on the intensity of pressure.

Mildon Studios updates EQ One to v2.0

Mildon Studios EQ One v2.0

Mildon Studios has released version 2.0 of EQ One, a freeware equalizer VST plug-in for Windows PC.

Intended for those who need to get their mix done fast and clean but want to have a lot of control over the sound, Back Stage EQ ONE packs eight controls for adjusting certain characteristics of the sound such as depth, warmth, body, clarity, presence, brightness, punch, and space.

Version 2.0 has an improved GUI and increases the range of the vocal effect.

Mildon Studios has also posted a beta version of Live 3D, a plug-in which allows you to visually position the sound inside a 3D sound stage.

It allows you to control the depth, the height or frequency range, and panning all from a 3D interface. It also comes with built-in enhancer/exciter, high-pass and low-pass filters, and reflection control so it’s easy to give the track its own place in the mix. Additional sliders allow you to control the send level and gain.

Visit Mildon Studios for more information and links to download EQ One and Live 3D beta.
