Art of Sound Contest

# Art of Sound Contest

From Instructables: Music is absolutely essential for creativity – it inspires new ideas, helps us to create and build, and provides a soundtrack for life.

That's why we've teamed up with Zalytron, Create Digital Music, and Bleep Labs to bring you the Art of Sound Contest. Show us something amazing and music-related, and win an awesome set of hand-built custom speakers or a musical instrument kit!

The contest is open to any project that creates something beautiful with or around sound. Entry Deadline: 26-jul-2009.

# BITWIG, next generation music creation software for composers, producers and DJs around the world.

About Bitwig:

Within the virtual environment of a computer anything is possible, yet on a fundamental level, the way music is created today with computers is still very similar to how hardware studios were used. With an entirely new approach, we want to take the next step in the evolution of the computer music studio and create the music software we always wanted to use ourselves.

Bitwig is based in Berlin and founded by Claes Johanson, Pablo Sara, Nicholas Allen and Volker Schumacher. Our experience in the computer music software industry includes Ableton, where we were all part of the development team behind the successful music software Live, and Vember Audio, creator of the critically acclaimed software synthesizer Surge.

# Mic shootout – 6 condensers from $120 – $1900 – Female vocals

Jon @ AudioGeekZine writes:

As part of the Home Recording 101 class at Revolution Audio, this past Thursday we did a shootout of 6 vocal mics. The mics selected were some of the top sellers at the store and ranged in price from the M-Audio Nova at $119 to the AT4060 at $1905.

Sound files of the recordings are available for download from AudioGeekZine.

# Propellerhead – Record – Micro Tutorials

The Record micro tutorials is a series of short and focused tutorial videos that will highlight one aspect of Record in each installment. We will add to this continously during Record's beta test period.

Tutorials currently available

  • Part 1 – Basics
    The first micro tutorial explains the basic layout of Record, how to move between them and how to go about making your first recording.
  • Part 2 – Reason & Record integration
    The second micro tutorial shows how Reason and Record work together as one when installed on the same computer.
Gotharman Deformer

# Gotharman’s Deformer a granular effects processor, a polyphonic filterbank synthesizer, a MIDI note randomizer.

It's an analogue style 2-track MIDI sequencer. It's the first machine in the world (I think), that can do REALTIME TIMESTRETCH ON A LIVE INPUT AUDIO SIGNAL. Add to this a granulator that cut's the input audio signal up in fragments, and lets you move these fragments around with the 16 step pots to rearrange beats and others in realtime. Use the two fully programmable filterbanks to tweak the sound further. Or create complete synth-patches by combining the internal polyphonic oscillator section with one or both of the filterbanks. Create two note and controller sequences and run them thru the note randomizer to create enddless non-mechanical variations. Store your arrangement in one of the 512 program locations for instant recall. That's the Deformer!

# SoundPlayground iComposer, a super powerful music creating tool for iPhone.

It can record what your are humming and transcribe your humming melody into music notes on five line staff. It also provides you with 130+ instruments to playback the music you wrote down.

Drum Kit Kit

# DrumKitKit

The Drum Kit – Kit lets you turn your Arduino into a drum kit. Imagine the fun you could have building a drum kit and then “rocking the house”.

The kit contains the electronic parts required to make a drum kit. This includes the circuit board, resistors, diodes and pins. You supply the Arduino and the material to make the actual drum pads. Below you will find the easy instruction on how to make traditional looking drum pads, but you could also stick the piezos (the part the sense the hits on the drum) to many different surfaces. Imagine, playing your desk, lamp and telephone!

# LITE2SOUND – This is a sensitive lightwave reciever that lets you explore the hidden sounds of modulated light. LITE2SOUND is a simple kit with 24 parts that solder to the board. It has a ¼” line output jack and runs on a coin cell battery.

MPC 2000 Xl @ Krach und Klang-Werkstatt

# Round-Up: Samples, Stealing, Fakery, the Law, and Lots of Sample Shenanigans — Peter Kirn on Justice, sampling in Germany, Deadmau5/FL Studio and the Killers:

Who’s sampling what? When is sampling stealing? Who’s stolen sampled samples, and was the sampling stolen stealing? Is anyone actually playing live? Does anyone know what the law is? Does anyone care?

The neverending story of sampling… + whistling in the case of Germany ^_^

# The role of Sound Effects in film… — Tim @ the music of sound shares some interesting thoughts on something Danny Elfman said a while ago (namely “Sound Effects Suck”).

# Bleep Labs » BitBlob – Noise performers extraordinaire, The Loud Objects, and Dr. Bleep have teamed up to create the first being of pure noise!

The Bit Blob is a digital noise maker that's controlled by connecting its contacts together, allowing you to bend your way through unlimited sonic madness. You can also connect LEDs, audio outputs, or other Bit Blobs between control pins!

# CDM Holiday Guide Reader Survey — Gifts of, for, and by You.

Peter Kirn writes:

It’s nearly the holiday season, and as CDM has just completed its fourth birthday, I want to give all of us a present. The idea: a holiday guide that’s a bit different.

This guide will include things you can share (CC-licensed), the best content from 2008 and you can help by filling out a survey to tell CDM what gift you would want to receive, what you would give to newcomers, and what you would want to read. Completing the survey will enter you in a drawing for a chance to get a free copy of the T-RackS 3 mastering and mixing suite donated by IK Multimedia.

Some interesting things I found on September 15th, 2008:

# KlankBeeld Raaphorst: project wit – Blogging musician Marco Raaphorst creates a new composition inspired by a photograph or video every single friday (well almost every friday anyway).

A few weeks ago Marco asked his readers to submit a little spoken audio clip of the word “wit”, Dutch for white.

Last friday Marco posted his 32nd "KlankBeeld" (sound image) featuring a video with images by Karin R. and a whole bunch of people who said "wit"

Yup, I’m in it too! Thanks Marco ^_^

# Cinematic sound technique: The subharmonic oscillator – Sonic Cinema explain the wonders of the subharmonic oscillator:

Did your ever wonder where those enormous rumbles come from whenever spaceships enter our solar system? The subbasses in movies are often that low and loud that you can really feel them. It is an element of excitement powerfull enough to get the viewers out of their seat.
This is not because the sound engineers mixed in recordings from an earthquake that make the ground shake, it is because we are dealing here with a Subharmonic Oscillator!

# Threadless contest: Name the Threadless Doorbot, win stuff

Threadless had (yup it’s over, sorry) a cool contest where you can win a Bleep Labs Thingamagoop.

Our doorbell here at Threadless broke, so the tech awesome dudes hacked together a magnificent replacement for it out of this super mega awesome noise making synthesizer robot!

Our friends at Bleep Labs sent us a Thingamagoop, and he’s doing a good job, but he needs a new name! So post your name idea in this blog, and while everyone is here tomorrow, we’ll vote and select a winner!

OPTIMUS CHIME by Tracerbullet won.
