Olympus LS-10

Some interesting things I found on May 23rd, 2008:

# Review: Olympus LS-10 WAV/WMA/MP3 Recorder – Olympus brings its expertise in cameras and voice recorders to the exploding field of portable WAV/MP3 recorders and comes up with some new twists. Guitarist Mark Nelson tests this 24-bit, aluminum-clad beauty and likes what he hears.

Mark writes:

I like the Olympus LS-10 a lot. I’m tickled with the design, ergonomics, audio quality, and the rugged aluminum case. I even like the little carrying case; it’s just big enough for the recorder and a mini tripod.

# Peter Vogel’s Fairlight Audio Archives – A collection of audio material including Fairlight demos, radio interviews and CMI pieces from the eighties. There are even a couple of recordings from the Fairlight CMI's predecessor, the Qasar M8, designed by Tony Furse.

# S T E I M needs your support

Things are not well at STEIM. We are in the danger of losing our structural funding from the government, based on a review from the advisor board which called us ‘closed and only appealing to a niche audience’. The outlook isn’t exactly bleak, but at the moment our future is unclear.

You can help out the creators of the Cracklebox by writing to the Dutch government, more info here.

# Cyclepong 2.0 – Cyclepong is an update of the classic arcade game Pong to use bikes as the controllers.

# Interview: New Virtual Instrument Maker FAW Talks Usability and Design

Peter Kirn writes:

Eoin Rossney, our new writer and contributor to the Kore minisite, got a chance to talk to FAW co-founder Gavin Burke, a fellow Irishman. We’ll have more on the instrument itself soon, but it’s an excellent, coffee-fueled discussion.

Peter writes:

We’re pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Native Instruments to bring you regular stories on how to make the most of Kore and the Komplete family of instruments and effects (Reaktor, Kontakt, Massive, and more). Over the coming weeks, we’ll offer tutorials, interviews, tips, resources, and free downloadable projects and presets. We’ll have resources for beginners, but we’ll also have some bleeding-edge “things you’re not supposed to do” ideas, as well, because that’s half the fun of this.

DrPetter releases sfxr – sound effect generator

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 19, 2007 - comment 1 comment

DrPetter has released sfxr, a sound effect generator created for LD48, a bi-annual 48 hour solo game development competition.

sfxr
sfxr – create cool sound effects with ease!

DrPetter writes:

What I present here is, if you will, an MS Paint for sound effects… or something along those lines. It’s meant to make it dead easy for anyone to whip up a few simple sound effects and save them as .WAV files for playback using most game/media libraries like SDL or pygame.

Features

  • Generator presets: Pickup/coin, laser/shoot, explosion, powerup, hit/hurt, jump and blip/select.
  • Randomize function & Mutate for small random changes to the current values.
  • Manual settings include: waveform selection, envelope, frequency controls, filters (LP/HP).
  • Preset load/save.
  • Export to .wav, 44.1kHz/22kHz, 16/8-bit.

A Linux port by mjau is available as well.

Check the sfxr page for more information.
