# Native Instruments Spiral (YouTube) – a sequenced Reaktor synth by Lazyfish, part of the Reaktor Animated Circuits KORE SoundPack (also available free to Reaktor users. Whoohoo!)


Native Instruments Spiral sequencing instrument, built in Reaktor 5

# Phantastron – This is a very special circuit and remind me of the old days playing with HeathKits in the basement. I'm very glad that I can offer this experience to you. It's a great way to learn about tubes, synthesis and extra-super-old-school synth-brewing.

# cellsDS at glitchDS – cellsDS is a free flexible, programmable grid-based music sequencer for the Nintendo DS. cellsDS is six sequencers in one, with each sequencer being controlled by a user definable Lua script. It is the peculiar anti-social stepchild of the Tenori-On and Monome.

# AES news and rumors – ProTooler Blog posts the latest news and rumors from AES:

Already time for AES again! Man, time flies. Unfortunately I won’t be attending it this year. The worst part about that isn’t necessarily that I can’t go around molesting the latest gear, but that I’ll miss all the kickass parties I’ve been invited to! Oh well. I’ll of course do my best to cover the news, and hopefully some friendly dude or dudette will supply me with some floor footage as well (if you’re going and is interested, let me know).

In the meantime, here are some of the AES news that have dropped into my mailbox over the last few weeks.

# IK Multimedia Rebuts Mag on Free Software; Why They Missed the Point

Freeware vs Commercial software? I know what I prefer… Whatever gets the job done!

Peter Kirn wrote a great article at CDM:

There’s a strange debate going on over the free software (as in freeware, not necessarily open source) issue of Computer Music magazine. After seeing the magazine’s top 10 reasons to use free software, commercial developer IK Multimedia got surprisingly defensive, and issued a rebuttal.

# aeo: DrawSound + Balls
DrawSound is a performance instrument that uses multi-touch input technology to create sound and music from the act of drawing. DrawSound has been used live by The SINE WAVE QUARTET and aeo. It was on display at the Second International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction [Bonn 2008].

# Stanton to Release Touch DJ Controller; Surface One, Thunder, Reborn?

Peter Kirn reports on the Stanton DaScratch

Stanton is teasing a new DJ controller with touch controls, and particularly a circular scratch/control area, with live LED feedback. This allows “virtual” controllers not only for DJs, but (Stanton hopes) VJs, laptop musicians, and the like. (Stanton says “multimedia artist,” to which we suggest “visualists”.) I especially enjoy the “confidential” site, though I’m not sure marking press release with “do not publish / embargoed” has much more impact given a lot of sites these days.

# hiuman – Runaway Harp – As the 1mm water streams are interrupted, the light weakens, fingers find delights in the water harp. Echo is silent, until light returns.

Tenori-Off

# TENORI-OFF
FUKUCHI Kentaro writes:

TENORI-ON is one of the coolest electric musical device: it is portable, easy to play and good for audio-visual performance. But I have not purchased it yet because it is expensive and a shortage in Japan.

So he built his own version, the Tenori-Off.

# Musical Buttonpad for iPhone (Codename “PaklSound1″)

Developer Patryk writes:

For my first iPhone project I'm working on a musical button pad that is inspired by the Tenori-on (but quite a bit simpler).

Basic improvements pending until 1.00 release:

  • better responsiveness
  • eliminate lag when switching layers
  • add more soundsets (thanks to freesound, probably!)

# Radiohead House of Cards Data: Time Lapse Rendering in Real Legos

Peter Kirn writes:

When the creative team behind Radiohead’s new video for House of Cards released 3D imaging data of Tom Yorke’s head, I’m sure they looked forward to finding out what people would do with it. I’m guessing one thing they didn’t expect was for someone to go manually through the data and painstakingly reproduce it in actual, physical Legos, one … brick … at … a … time, then make it into motion again with time lapse photography (okay, with a fair bit of fakery and digital legos added, though quite nicely).

# Carl Craig Gets an Orchestra – Not to be outdone by the Glitch Mob's unique live band approach to computer music, Detroit techno legend and Planet E boss Carl Craig is stepping away from the laptop and heading not to a MIDI controller, but a full orchestra setup.

# WolframTones algorithmic composition generator – WolframTones works by taking simple programs from Wolfram's computational universe, and using music theory and Mathematica algorithms to render them as music.

# iPhone Ups and Downs, Unhappy Developers, and the MIDI Controllers You Can’t Have Yet – Peter Kirn explains why some interesting things for your iPhone aren't happening…

  • Apple won’t let some developers on their device,
  • Apple is failing to communicate with developers,
  • Apple is gagging developers and making coding harder.

# The Reconfigurable House installation, built with thousands of hacked toys and gadgets, an environment constructed from thousands of low tech components that can be "reconfigured" by its occupants. Any sensor/actuator can be connected to any other sensor/actuator — it is the occupants of the house who determine the systems that run inside it.
