passionate gamers professional-grade sonic precision in a compact and affordable package.

KRK Systems VXT4w

As the migration of music, movies and gaming continues to move from traditional forms such as CD and DVD to downloaded files, more and more entertainment is being enjoyed at personal computers. Having the ability to listen to music and other media on your computer using the same type of professional-grade monitors used in recording studios around the world is now within reach! KRK’s VXT4w Studio Monitors allow you hear every nuance and subtlety across the entire dynamic audio range—so that you can hear what you’ve been missing.

“This is the computer audio monitor for those who really care about their music,” offered Tim Dorwart, CEO of The Stanton Group, parent company to KRK. “Those that watch movies or are computer-based gamers will be thrilled at the sound quality that these small monitors deliver. Listening to music at a computer is the equivalent of a recording engineer working at a console where the speakers are in close proximity, i.e. “near-field” monitoring. Being paired with a computer on a desk or workstation is the ideal application for KRK’s VXT4w given its compact form factor. The monitor’s high-headroom allows the user to experience sonic clarity across the entire audio spectrum—with an affordable price tag!”

WaldFlöte

Some interesting things I found recently:

# WaldFlöte — The WaldFlöte project is basically a MIDI retrofit of a 1890's era 16 foot pipe organ. It converts MIDI input into solenoid drive to directly press the keys on one of the manuals – there is no permanent modification to the organ.

Members of Dorkbot Edinburgh have spent the last 7 months or so working on this and we're pretty pleased with it. It was publicly announced at the Electron Club Open Day on 18th October 2008 in Glasgow.

Check the project page for detailed info and some videos.

# Bodysnatchers – Zeno Music Visualiser

Glenn Marshall writes:

This is my first attempt at music visualisation, based on the Zeno animation system I’ve been developing for my first two videos Music is Math and Metamorphosis. This time it’s Radiohead with their Bodysnatchers track from In Rainbows.

# Propellerhead – Bassline Battle – Got funk? Got bass? For a chance to win astonishing prizes, enter the Propellerhead 2008 bassline battle. Fire up Reason and put together the funkiest, illest, baddest bassline and drum beat combination possible.
1st prize: Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 Audio Interface, KRK Rokit Powered 5 G2 Monitors + KRK 10s Subwoofer and Novation ReMOTE SL COMPACT 25.

Singing Sock Puppets

# Singing Sock Puppets – Matthew Irvine Brown's puppets can be tuned to sing in any scale or mode.

At the minute their voices come from a small Max/MSP patch and some very basic electronics, but he can also be rigged up to be a MIDI controller.

They can help illustrate relatively complex musical theory – such as the differences between blues, chromatic and pentatonic scales – through play and storytelling; this scale terminology is relatively advanced, and doesn't normally enter the school curriculum until children choose to specialise in music at GCSE level in the UK (ages 15 – 16).

# V-Synth GT FREE Sounds The download adds a synth museum’s worth of sounds to the V-Synth GT, with over 450 recreations of classic analog synthesizers from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s plus a host of classic Juno, Jupiter, SH, 303 and D-50 sounds. There are also new filter bank patches specifically designed to control external audio sources. Also available, the MV-Series Free Sounds: Dirt&Grime Drum Kit – This new drum kit is available for existing 8000 and 8800 owners and spans a range of musical styles from urban, R&B and electro house. The kit has a slighty gritty sound and a wider-than-normal range of sensitivity so you can experiment with changes in swing and volume.
