Nudge

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Nudge

Hobnox has launched Nudge, a virtual-instrument widget designed for self-expressive online music making & sharing.

It’s fun and simple to use and you don’t need to know a single thing about producing music to make your own individual songs in minutes!

Brought to you by the developers of the Audiotool, nudge is yet another example of the pioneering work of the team dedicated to creating the best online music production tools.

Nudge features

  • Includes 8 different sounds.
  • 16 Step Matrix allows drawing or selecting notes with your mouse.
  • Adjust each Track Volume & Panorama to correct the mix & set the overall Master volume.
  • Tempo can be adjusted.
  • Get + Share feature sends links and emails to your friends.
  • Embed the widget on your own profile, blog or webpage.

Lots of fun, just try it below.

# Cloudspeaker – What would your music taste look like as an object? Cloudspeaker is a conceptual work to create loudspeakers that reflect the music taste of their owner via 3d printing.

# DSO nano by Seeed Studio.

DSO nano is a pocket size digital storage oscilloscope fulfills basic electronic engineering requirements.

It is based on ARM Cortex™-M3 compatible 32 bit platform, equipped with 320*240 color display, SD card capability, USB connection, and chargeable batteries. Weighs only 60g!

# 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.

DIY turntable by Paulo Paulo Rebordão

# The Oil Rig Turntable: The Turntable

Paulo Rebordão writes:

After coming across some DIY efforts at building turntables, I too decided to give it a try… For the turntable, I went for an all aluminium construction and a decidedly “mechanical” look.

# little-scale: SP0256-AL2 Sample Pack

Sebastian offers 59 samples (16 bit, 44.1KHz mono .wav files) that have been recorded directly from an SP0256-AL2 chip.

These represent all 59 sounded allophones that the SP0256-AL2 is capable of producing via its internal ROM. The included sounds are named by the allophone in terms of each audio file.

Gijs Gieskes Motor Keys - MK Tape 4 (GT 4)

# Motor Keys

This project can be used to make music with small dc electro motors, controled by a small keyboard.

Gijs writes:

A project i have been working on for to long..
In it i use a keyboard to control DC electronic motors to make music. There there are endless possibilitys.

# Tiny Subversions: First demo, MeggySynth – Darius Kazemi is writing a music synthesizer program for the Meggy Jr. RGB kit: This is my first run of a little live performance sound and video device I'm calling MeggySynth. It's definitely just a proof of concept, I'm hoping to make things more impressive all around. I'll be using the A/B buttons for pitch shifting, too.

# Fretless Fader Midi Prototype with Vestax Controller One

This is the first public view of the Fretless Fader system I designed for use with the Controller One (posted February 22, 2009). With this you can cut and change notes through 2 octaves without taking your hands away from the vinyl and fader.

# Max 5.0.6 – Lots of bug fixes and new features.

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.

# Slashbot: The Guitar Hero Robot – A robotic system capable of autonomously playing the video game Guitar Hero.

Slashbot
Slashbot – mounted guitar and the fingers (solenoid actuators).

How does it work? The brightness of a pixel from the PlayStation2′s video signal is determined by the signal’s voltage amplitude. Since the notes are the brightest images on the screen they can be detected by setting trigger points. Once a detection is made, a control signal is sent to the robot after a specific delay (determined by the tempo of the song).

# NI Ends Legal Dispute Over Traktor Scratch; Digital Vinyl’s Twisty, Turny History – As of Friday, it seems that the ongoing saga of a dispute over digital vinyl, beginning with the 2006 “divorce” of digital DJ titans Stanton Electronics and Native Instruments, may be over. NI released a statement Friday saying they had not only settled a US civil action patent case over their use of digital vinyl in Traktor Scratch, but had agreed to license the technology from N2IT Holdings, the US patent owners for digital DJing.

Sergio Avello VOLUMEN

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on March 5th, 2008:

  • ((( VOLUMEN ))) – a giant graphic equalizer built by Argentinian artist Sergio Avello. It relays the ambient urban noise levels around the Redgaleria in Buenos Aires.
  • Scene.org 2008 Awards – Nominees – The demo scene is still going strong.
  • Using Delays for 3D Sound Placement – Our ears and brain are sensitive to the differences in sound arrival time, and use the information (along with other cues, like volume) to judge where a sound source is located in the space around us.
