Some interesting things I found recently:

# bassdll – An arduino piezo buzzer sound engine by Drew Crawford.

Source code available at github

# ISM / DUBBHISM: impulse responses

Tony Dubshot wrote in to share some of the unusual but usable, hi quality impulse responses he is offering on his Dubshot website. Includes: RE-201 Roland Space Echo impulse responses (25-200 BPM), The Quantum Hall Effects (impulse responses from nanospace), and 60 Classic and King Tubby style spring reverb impulse responses.

Charting the Beatles – Authorship and Collaboration

Michael Deal writes:

These visualizations are part of an extensive study of the music of the Beatles. Many of the diagrams and charts are based on secondary sources, including but not limited to sales statistics, biographies, recording sesion notes, sheet music, and raw audio readings.

# Circuit Bending the Bliptronic 5000

Michael Una circuit bends his Bliptronic 5000:

and while I was sad that there was no active synthesis, I’m pretty satisfied with the results.

# MISA digital guitar

The MISA digital guitar is a minimalistic looking MIDI controller.

mtXcontrol

# mtXcontrol

mtXcontrol by Tobias Bielohlawek is an editor written in Processing to easily create image sequences for several output devices containing multicolor LED matrix.

mtXcontrol Editor auto detects and connects to your device. Once connected, you can draw points, lines & rows in different colors, create multiple frames and manipulate them. Add, delete, move, fill, copy & paste of frames is supported. Play all frames by different speed, realtime update the device and save your work as image file. If supported (e.g. Rainbowduino), update the sequence on your device and run it standalone. One special feature is typing letters and numbers. Future versions aim to support multiple devices, different color depth and many more.

# Elektron Monomachine drum samples

Some new free samples from Cyberworm: 156 drums, clicks, noised and rattles from Elektron Monomachine (wav format, 24 bit, 44100, stereo, 12 mb)

Also from Cyberworm: Ensoniq VFX/SD patches, 85 banks and 709 single patches for Ensoniq SD, VFX, VFX-SD. Only Ensoniq SD 100% compatible! In VFX or VFX-SD some patches might not work (or work incorrectly)!

Teenage Engineering announces OP-1

Teenage Engineering has announced the OP-1 (Operator-1), a pocket size synthesizer and controller.

Teenage Engineering OP-1

OP-1 features

  • It’s a controller — OP-1 stands for Operator 1. The OP-1 is a pocket size controller for your favorite software sequencer. Connect it to your laptop and it lets you control your sequencers transport with the common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind. Use it to control your software synthesizers with the 4 rotary encoders and 16 dedicated quick keys for fast selections.
  • …and a Synthesizer — When you disconnect the OP-1 from your computer you suddenly have a stand-alone portable wonder-machine with 8 synthesizer models, 8 samplers and effects like Delay, Flutter, Filters and EQ all built in. Use all that synthesizer power to record your work with the truly unique (at present time, secret) sequencer. We promise you a really cool and creative way to record your sounds and tweak them in a completely new way.
  • A portable wonder! — Use the magic step sequencer/arpegiator to get the notes right. If that is not enough use the built in motionsensor that sense every shake or move you make and turn it into really cool sounds. Then relax and sample a beat from the built-in FM radio or memorize a tune by whistle it into the built-in microphone. Play your piece to your friends through the built-in speaker. Or…convert it right away to mp3 and mail it to them.

In case you think the OP-1 looks too good to be true, the developers have posted a nice video.

The OP-1 is still in development and should be ready in 10-12 months.

When the time is right we will sell 100 OP-1:s to those of you who are ready to beta-test the pre release product. Fill in the form to the right to be part of this exclusive beta-program. We are looking for all types of users from professional sound designers to ordinary users just interested in sound and synthesizers.
