CDM NI Kore Minisite

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.

# TouchPad Midi – Started from a scavenged Cirque Glidepoint resistive touchpad (PS/2 compatible), 2×8 LCD (in 4 bit mode), two buttons and a serial Arduino board.

TouchPad Midi
TouchPad Midi – the Arduino code is available here

The buttons when pressed allow to set the Continuous Controller number by gliding the finger on the touchpad. Left for CC# linked to X and right for Y. The LCD displays the value sent in MIDI. Some custom characters where coded into the CGRAM in order to have a sort of bar graph. The first line is for X and the second for Y.

# Leon Berry’s Beast In The Basement – This organ was once used to accompany silent movies at the Lake Theater in Crystal Lake Illinois.

# Build a Pocket Theremin on the Cheap – Throw together this pint-sized light-sensitive Theremin for spooky sci-fi sound effects on the cheap.

# visual scratch :: turntablism visualized – Visual Scratch is a visualization system designed and implemented by Jesse Kriss.

# Eroktronix MidiTron – A MIDI to real-world interface designed to simplify the process of creating sensor and robotics based electronic art projects. It is easily user configurable and provides 20 terminals of digital and analog inputs and outputs in any combination.

# Hørselstest – Cool interactive hearing test. A few weeks I did a little test of my own with a frequency sweep on my dad’s cellphone. It’s scary to see what the years (and perhaps loud music) do to your ears. My uncle could only hear the sound almost 5 seconds after me and my wife heard it. Eeks!

# Super Genintari – This 4-in-1 Atari 2600/NES/Genesis/Super NES combo system actually began its life sometime circa early 2002, and at the time it only consisted of a Sega Genesis/32X and Super NES.

# Robot that listens then repeats drum beats made from lego NXT! – The program is written in NBC/NXC using BrickCC. A drum pattern is played by the user then after one second of silence the robot repeats the pattern played.
