# How to Install ReBirth in Linux, Get a Free Rack of Beat Machines

Peter Kirn writes:

I just picked up a $280 Asus netbook and installed Ubuntu on it. ReBirth seemed a perfect addition; its compact-sized UI, lightweight processing and memory requirements, and simple functions are the ideal companion to a netbook. And, thanks to Propellerhead, it also happens to be free.

If you stick with Windows, just download and go. On Linux, though, you have to give the installer some help to see the install disc. (Why install Linux? I’m finding Ubuntu is just fine for battery life, and I wanted to take advantage of the OS’ optimizations for netbooks and its flexibility for the work I do, audio and otherwise. Windows 7 Starter, by contrast, I found slow and painfully hobbled.) You’ll need WINE, a Windows compatibility tool, in order to run this Windows app in Linux without virtualization.

Sun Boxes

# Sun Boxes

Sound artist, Craig Colorusso, returns to Western Massachusetts with his latest piece, a solar powered sound installation; SUN BOXES.

For the first three weekends of November Turners Falls River Culture will present Craig Colorusso’s latest piece Sun Boxes. At three locations, allowing the participants to observe the piece evolve as it moves through the town.

  • Nov. 5-7 Lawn of the Great Falls Discovery Center, 2 Ave.
  • Nov. 12-14 Peskeomskut Park, Ave. A + 7th Sts
  • Nov. 19-21 Lawn at the beginning of the bike path, 1st St

Sun Boxes is a solar powered sound installation. It’s comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. Inside each Sun Box is a PC board that has a recorded guitar note loaded and programmed to play continuously in a loop. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time.

Participants are encouraged to walk amongst the speakers, and surround themselves with the piece. Certain speakers will be closer and, therefore, louder so the piece will sound different to different people in different positions throughout the array. Allowing the audience to move around the piece will create a unique experience for everyone. in addition, the participants are encouraged to wander through the speakers, which will alter the composition as they move. Given the option two people will take different paths through the array and hear the composition differently. Sun Boxes is not just one composition, but, many.

We are all reliant on the sun. It is refreshing to be reminded of this. Our lives have filled up with technology. But we still need the sun and so does Sun Boxes. Karlheinze Stockhausen once said “using Short-wave radios in pieces was like improvising with the world.” Similarly, Sun Boxes is collaborating with the planet and its relation to the sun.

Colorusso now lives on the South Shore of Boston with a wife and a cat.

Moog Filtatron

# Dan303: Moog Filtatron

Dan on Moog’s Filtatron iPhone app:

I found the Moog filtatron app fun and extremely easy to use.

The sound of the filters and VCO are brilliant, it's hard to replicate analog hardware exactly but for an app running your phone it's very close.

It's cheap too, for just £2.99 you can own your very own moog filter. Combine that with the Amplitube iRig adapter and you have yourself a portable, analog modeled filter and effects unit.

# Find, Remix and Reuse – SoundCloud Style

SoundCloud gets advanced search, browse by tag, and Creative Commons integration.

Choice is good, right? We just love that we can pick our favorite ice cream flavor or favorite color for a new shirt. When it comes to audio creation, it’s even better when your choice creates more choice for others.

Today, SoundCloud is opening up a bit more to allow you to find and share more sounds to use and reuse. With new search and discovery features for Creative Commons tracks, your creations can go much further. More options give you more freedom over your audio content on the web. It helps expose your work and find people to collaborate with that you perhaps wouldn’t normally find. We’re excited about this update and we hope you are too. We say “New features!” you say “Yay!”

Some of my music and samples (both Creative Commons licensed) are available from SoundCloud as well.

# Percussa AudioCube Production and Performance Notes for “I Hear Your Signals”

Mark writes:

For my original music album “I Hear Your Signals” (download the album free) I use Percussa Audiocubes as performance controllers. In this post I’ll give you all the geeky details about how the controllers were applied in the project.

I used 4 AudioCubes plus Percussa’s free MIDIbridge app on Windows to configure and route AudioCube signals to Ableton Live. I use the same MIDIbridge patch for every song which allows for consistent and predictable data mapping from the cubes to Ableton Live.

In general, I play a lot of the notes on you hear on the album via keyboards, Theremin and Tenori-On live. I tend to use the cubes as controllers, for scene launching, and for real-time modulation of effects and synth parameters and only use them for triggering notes from time to time.

Access Music Richard Devine Signature Soundset 2010, free sounds for Virus TI

Access Music

Access Music has announced the release of Richard Devine Signature Soundset 2010, a free collection of sounds for the Virus TI synthesizer.

The new signature set by the Atlanta based Glitchcore/IDM artist Richard Devine takes your Virus TI to extreme and new territories. Richard’s passion for noise, dirt and distortion can easily be recognised though all his sounds.

Many sounds alter drastically with changing the MIDI note pitch although the actual pitch remains nearly the same. Also many sounds evolve over time and can be greatly modified with the preassigned soft knobs.

The new patch set can be downloaded free of charge in the Access Music download area.
