Short links for August 6th, 2008

Some interesting things I found on August 6th, 2008:

Berlin Hauptbahnhof by leralle

# Free audio recordings from the Berlin S-Bahn. – Oliver Chesler writes:

Yesterday I took a trip to Ikea in Berlin. To get from Prenzlauer Berg to Spandau takes about thirty minutes on the S-Bahn. I had my camera with me which also takes decent video. However, it wasn’t visual imagery I was after. I hit record but left the camera’s lens cap on. I was only after audio recordings.

There are a myriad of hot flash recorders on the market but I used what I had with me and I think the recordings sound great. Another advantage of recording this way is people aren’t really aware of what your doing. If I had a Sony PCM-D1 in my hand people may not speak naturally. I’m planning on using some of these recordings on my next album but your free to use them too. Remember it’s not the sounds, it’s how you use them!

Check wire to the ear for links to download the recordings (24bit wavs) released under a Creative Commons license.

# Critter and Guitari – Here are some pictures showing how to construct a felt top enclosure for the Pocket Piano Kit. The enclosure uses felt for the top, and wood on the sides.

#, “First” Synth for iPhone/iPod Touch, Will Bring Gestural FM Synthesis Control – Peter Kirn writes:

The iPhone and iPod Touch are getting their share of metronomes, guitar tuners, sonic toys, and even one fairly full-featured sample-based drum machine / arrangement tool (BeatMaker). But what about live synthesis? (short for Noise for iPhone) claims to be the “first” synth. (I believe, technically, that honor goes to Einar Andersson’s iPhone synth, but that isn’t yet an official iTunes app, and it’s relatively basic by comparison.)

More info on here.

# Paul Rubenstein kids – Paul Rubenstein, known as "Mr.R." by his students, teaches high school and middle school kids how to make electric guitars and amplifiers.


# Mobile Apps: MeTeoR, Micro-DAW for Windows Mobile PDAs, Phones – CDM reports on MeTeoR, a pocket-able miniature DAW, boasting:

  • 12 tracks of audio with stereo mixdown.
  • Audio waveform editing with cut, copy, paste, and processing (fade, normalize, reverse, etc.).
  • Various effects (delay, chorus, reverb, phaser, filters, pitch shift, noise gate, graphic EQ, and more), with routable aux sends.
  • Metronome with live recording.
  • A mixer with full automation envelopes for each tracks (for the mixer lanes and effects).

# Image scanning sequencer – This sequencer by Gijs Gieskes scans images, and plays the image as midi notes.


Aldo Calpini releases Theresa v0.6.1

Aldo Calpini Theresa (default skin)

Aldo Calpini has released version 0.6.1 of Theresa, a client/server application that turns a Pocket PC PDA into a MIDI controller surface.

Aldo writes:

basically you start the server on the desktop PC (the server sits quietly in the system tray), then start the client on the (ActiveSync-connected) Pocket PC et voila, you can use your finger on the PDA touchscreen to move faders and push buttons.

Theresa features customizable layouts & skinnable GUI (via XML files), and you can save/load presets. Theresa’s faders and buttons can be freely assigned to MIDI CC.

Aldo’s TODO list has some interesting things on it as well: XY pad, multiple pages and rotary encoders to name a few.

Theresa is released as (open source) freeware. The download includes binaries and source code.

Visit the Theresa page for more information and a link to download the latest version.
