Some interesting things I found recently:

DIY turntable by Paulo Paulo Rebordão

# The Oil Rig Turntable: The Turntable

Paulo Rebordão writes:

After coming across some DIY efforts at building turntables, I too decided to give it a try… For the turntable, I went for an all aluminium construction and a decidedly “mechanical” look.

# little-scale: SP0256-AL2 Sample Pack

Sebastian offers 59 samples (16 bit, 44.1KHz mono .wav files) that have been recorded directly from an SP0256-AL2 chip.

These represent all 59 sounded allophones that the SP0256-AL2 is capable of producing via its internal ROM. The included sounds are named by the allophone in terms of each audio file.

# Tiny Subversions: First demo, MeggySynth – Darius Kazemi is writing a music synthesizer program for the Meggy Jr. RGB kit: This is my first run of a little live performance sound and video device I'm calling MeggySynth. It's definitely just a proof of concept, I'm hoping to make things more impressive all around. I'll be using the A/B buttons for pitch shifting, too.

# Fretless Fader Midi Prototype with Vestax Controller One

This is the first public view of the Fretless Fader system I designed for use with the Controller One (posted February 22, 2009). With this you can cut and change notes through 2 octaves without taking your hands away from the vinyl and fader.


# Max 5.0.6 – Lots of bug fixes and new features.

DIS.PLAY Impress

# DIS.PLAY » Blog Archive » Final documentation: Impress

Impress is the deliverance of the touch screen from its technical stiffness, coldness and rigidity. It breaks the distance in the relationship of human and technology, because it is not any longer the user which is subjected to technology, but in this case the display itself has to cave in to the human. Impress is a chance of approach of user and technology, above all, from technology.

It is a matter of a flexible display consisting of foam and force sensors which is deformable and feels pleasantly soft. Impress works with the parameters position and time like other touch screens as well, but in addition to that, it reacts, above all, on the intensity of pressure.

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.
