Ryan Gruss Volume II

Some interesting things I found recently:

# A Deal You Can’t Refuse |

Ryan is about to release Volume II of his subscription based drum loops service, so in the next few days you can get over 200 loops for only $9.95.

As I’m putting the finishing touches on Gruss Loops Volume II, I realized I should make you painfully aware of the sweet deal that currently lays before you. You see, since I’m offering the loop packs as a subscription service, there will be over 200 loops available over the course of the next two days. That’s right. You could sign up now, grab Volume I right now AND Volume II in another 24 hours…. all for the rock bottom price of $9.95. You can even cancel after you nab both of the packs. See if I care (you cheap bastard). I know you’ll be back for more.

# PCM 70 Ver 2 & Ver 3 SysEx Preset Registers

Eric Beam has SysEx register dumps from Lexicon’s PCM 70 Ver 2 and 3.

The PCM 70 Ver 2 & Ver 3 have completely different Preset Registers. Many upgraded to Ver 3 to gain the Inverse Room algorithm but lost the coveted Ver 2 Preset Registers in the process.

# SX-150 synth mod instructions, schematics and code

MrBook Gakken SX-150 hack

MrBook did a lovely Arduino hack on the Gakken SX-150, adding MIDI and audio out.

Many people have asked about the instructions and code for the SX-150 mod I did to add MIDI and Audio out, therefore I’m posting the plans for everyone to try. By using the Arduino as the brains of the operation, a lot of other options are available for the mod, really the sky is the limit. If you do any cool hacks to it, by all means, please let me know.

# Return To The Hallway #free #samples

More free samples by Kent Williams:

This set was inspired by our elderly dryer dying — well, the belt driving the drum snapped, so I took the back off to see if it was user serviceable. Confronted with even more stamped sheet metal cowlings, I gave up and bought a new dryer.

But that giant cover was just begging to be tapped, banged and otherwise made to reverberate. Added to that are some pot lids and other random noise-making things, including a plastic tarp on the floor. The ‘kik’ sample was made from me bumping the mic stand, and the surpisingly convincing ’snarish’ is me sneezing.

Luca de Rosso OTTO


OTTO by Luca de Rosso is an electronic musical instrument for realtime manual beat slicing of audio samples.

OTTO provides a tangible user interface designed with the aim of giving the user the feel of having the sample in his hands. The musician can manipulate an audio sample in real time through the use of a restricted number of simple physical buttons and switches.

Aurora DJ mixer by Peter Kirn

# Hands-on with Aurora, Open Source DJ Control Surface, Shipping Now

Peter Kirn takes the Aurora for a spin:

The Aurora is called a DJ “mixer,” but it’s really a control surface. It connects via a USB jack for power and to transmit serial-over-USB data, then uses free software to translate that data to MIDI messages for use with software like Ableton Live. The project is the work of a three person team, with Matt Aldrich designing electronics, Mike Garbus designing firmware, and Maro Sciacchitano working on the form factor and look and feel. They have an impressive background in making stuff. I got to hang out with Matt in Boston, where he’s joined MIT’s Media Lab Responsive Environments group, so I expect more good projects out of him soon. Matt and I talked frankly over coffee and pastries about the strong suits, weak spots, and future of the device and other projects.

# – Lots of papercraft guitar models.

# MAKE: Blog: Review – Gakken analog synth kit – Collin Cunningham: The SX-150 kit is very easy to use and some modding ideas are bound to come to mind should you get your hands on one. At the very least, you can choose from a number of included decorative decals – and at the more advanced end, schematic and code for using MIDI input has already been posted. I'm sure more sweet DIY add-ons are in the works – very awesome.

Over the weekend I wrote a simple program in Pd that analyses an audio input and then uses pitch and amplitude information to output a midi control value.

  • Guitar Hero: On Tour Interview
    Karthik Bala says:

    We figured that attaching a full-size guitar or even a mini-guitar would be too awkward to play on the road, hence the design of the more compact Guitar Grip, which gives you the tactile sense of the fret buttons, with the touch screen depicting the strings of the guitar (instead of a strum bar).
