Percussa DeckaBridge

Some interesting things I found recently:

# AudioCubes DeckaBridge

Percussa’s AudioCubes meets Deckadance in DeckaBridge, a software designed with the digital DJ in mind.

Deckabridge is a software application developed specifically for the Percussa AudioCubes hardware. It lets you use the AudioCubes with Deckadance, well known professional DJ software from Image-Line, the company that created FL Studio.

DeckaBridge allow you to:

  • Control the transport (CUE, seek fwd / backw)
  • Control EQ and effect sections (bit crusher, lowpass filter, …)
  • Control loop length and enable/disable
  • Control various parts of the relooper beat slicer (a unique feature in DJ software!)

# little-scale: 3 Sega Sample Kits for BeatMaker (iPhone)
Sebastian Tomczak has a few free Sega kits for BeatMaker.

Today I picked up the brilliant application BeatMaker for iPhone and iPod Touch. It is a great combination of a simple interface with enough flexibility to do some interesting things with it.

Here are three Sega kits for BeatMaker:

• YM2413 Drums (recorded from a Sega Master System 1)
• YM2612 (recorded from a Sega Mega Drive 2)
• SN76489 (recorded from a Sega Master System 2)

# Arduino playground – Un looper pour guitare électrique (French)

Arduin based Guitar Looper

Arduino based Guitar Looper:

Here's how to make a little pedal for electric guitar. The idea is to connect the Arduino pedals, and using software to control sound processing, we made ourselves with Pure Data. Here I show you an example of a looper, but it can also be a rack of effects without problem.

# Going the Extra Mile for Unique Timbres: Part 2

Nick Maxwell takes a look at some more sound-shaping tools that will aid you in your quest to develop unique timbres.

Continuing the series of posts I began last week, let’s take a look at some more sound-shaping tools that will aid us in our quest to develop unique timbres. As usual, I’ll be using Ableton Live to illustrate when needed.

# Wild Musical Inventions from Berlin Hackday

Peter Kirn writes:

The Berlin Hack Day, which wound up earlier today, offers still more projects focused on the creation side of music hacking. Having Ableton and Native Instruments as sponsors likely helped the mood. And as you’d expect from one of the world capitals of creative hacking, Berliners don’t disappoint.

Among the projects: a beautiful, elegant 3D sequencer, a fun bird-and-sky multitouch soundmaker with multitouch trackpad input, and a robotic xylophone controlled by monome. Someone even worked out a way to turn NI’s Maschine into a rhythm game, complete with Street Fighter sounds.

Stanton DJ DaRouter

Stanton DJ has announced software updates to their SCS.1 and SCS.3 product lines.

The SC System is Stanton’s innovative line of digital controllers for the professional DJ, and is currently comprised of the SCS.1d deck controller, SCS.1m mix controller, the SCS.3d touch sensitive deck controller, and the SCS.3m touch sensitive mix controller. The free software updates enhance the System’s features and compatibility with leading industry applications.

The updates consist of a new version of DaRouter, Stanton’s innovative MIDI and system control software that allows the SC System controllers the ability to send and receive information from host applications. For the SCS.1 products, the new version has automatic firmware checking and updates, improvements for better performance of scratch detection and encoders, and a more responsive motorized slider. New DaRouter presets for SCS.1 and SCS.3 series components provide indirect and direct support for Traktor Pro, PCDJ, and Virtual DJ programs, DJ Decks, Tracktor LE, Mixx, and Deckadance. The SCS.1 also benefits from new firmware that improves its MIDI timing and accuracy and reduces latency.

Other improvements to DaRouter software include

  • Master preset allows for 1 preset to encompass the following hardware setups (2 decks x 1 mixer; 1 deck x 1 mixer; 2 decks standalone; 1 deck standalone; 1 mixer standalone).
  • New pitch slider control logic.
  • Presets decoupled from deck and mixer. Both products can change controls of encoders without being linked.
  • New deck select logic allows direct access to any onscreen deck by holding deck select button. Also multiple physical decks can be assigned to the same deck.
  • Quick switching between presets: tap a preset on the hardware to change. Press and hold to change a parameter and automatically switch back to previous control.
  • FX preset drastically updated; FX selection possible by holding the preset button. Every Traktor effect shows up on the LCD’s when selecting and using.
  • Major updates to mixer presets including Transport (allows for scrubbing, pitch control, sync control, and pitch bends all from the mixer), Loop/beat jump (allows for looping, moving and beat jumps all from the mixer), FX1 and FX2 (allows FX selection by name and all parameters shown, plus various other feature improvements).

The updates are available now for free download at:
