01011010 digital media (of G-Sonique digital instruments, Analog Dimension mastering studios etc.) has announced their latest project: 123creative.com

123creative.com – is new creative boutique (digital webstore) with resources for music producers, graphic designers, webdesigners and other creative people.

If you are music producer, graphic designer or webdesigner it often happens to you, that you don’t have enough time available for creating minor components as presets, samples or textures, backgrounds, Photoshop layer styles, fonts, icons etc. Main goal of 123creative.com is to offer you products that will allow you to create professional work, save your time, money and energy so you can fully focus on creating real ART.

Unlike other digital webstores 123creative would like to offer only best products from selected artists. Simply we don’t want to be next massive and chaotic website full of low/medium quality materials from thousands authors. Sounds like cliché but we really prefer quality over quantity.

123creative.com is currently starting cooperation with many talented artists/authors worldwide, including people behind Analog Dimension and G-Sonique that will soon presents many interesting audio products as samples, synthesizer presets or VST plug-ins exclusively made for 123creative.

Some interesting things I found recently:

Headgear Drone Machine by Tristan Shone

# Drone Machines by Tristan Shone.

Drone Machines are custom made machines fabricated from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry.

The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine.

The machines require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding drone and doom influenced sounds that are created.

# Masonverb by Brian Green: The masonverb is a diy mic with a reverb like effect to it, basically its a glass plate reverb, it was made by building a contact mic into a masonjar which leads to the name.

# Chord Triggering in Ableton Live (Vimeo)

This video shows you how to use Ableton Live’s clips as chord banks and trigger them with one key. It also touches on the following features: Follow Action, Launch Modes, Midi Mapping & Routing, Pitch (midi plugin)

# The Problem with Digital Music

Interesting article by sound designer Tim Prebble.

Is there a problem with digital music? Its so odd reading about the endless piracy & copyright problems, and how the music industry is apparently suffering & dieing when to me, contemporary music feels more vibrant than ever. Every week I discover new music & not just ‘new’ bands, but often highly evolved music that has existed for a number of years, but for whatever reason I just had never heard before. In many ways I think what I am enjoying is the new democracy where I am more likely to discover a new independent band or composer, than have a new act promoted and/or forced upon me by dinosaurs…

But for the moment lets ignore music of the past & consider contemporary music, music that has been created with no involvement or reliance on the old music industry. What are the problems associated with it?

Youth Music Box

# Waveformless: 5 Non-Musical Purchases to Improve Your Life in the Studio

Tom Shear lists some things that come in handy in your studio.

Being a musician can be expensive. I tend to break down musical purchases into "sexy" and "non-sexy" categories. Buying a new synth? Sexy. Buying MIDI cables? Non sexy. The thing is, a lot of the time, it's the non-sexy purchases that can make the biggest difference in our day to day lives in the studio. So today I'm going to concentrate on a few of these that I've found particularly important.

d-touch

# d-touch.org – The d-touch sequencer and the d-touch drum machine are fully and freely available for download (Registration needed)! Please try them out and spread the word!

Audio d-touch is a collection of applications for real-time musical composition and performance, with very special user interfaces. The collection includes a drum machine and a sampling sequencer, both are controlled by spatially arranging physical objects on an interactive table surface. Each object represents a sound, and its position with respect to the surface is mapped to certain playback parameters. For example, the horizontal position of an object represents the timing of the sound. The system is extremely low cost and now it can be freely and fully downloaded from http://www.d-touch.org/audio. All is needed to get audio d-touch to work is a standard computer (PC or Mac) with a webcam and a printer.

# Behringer’s Latest Rip-Off Job: Apple.com

Peter Kirn writes:

Look out: Behringer, already a notorious rip-off artist, is taking the “first step in [the] company’s reinvention of online presence.” I shudder to think what the coming steps will look like. But yes, the new site looks a wee bit familiar. It actually gets worse as you dig into the layout.

Is anyone really surprised? Don’t we all know Behringer’s game already?

The Conet Project

# The Conet Project – Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations

For more than 30 years the Shortwave radio spectrum has been used by the worlds intelligence agencies to transmit secret messages. These messages are transmitted by hundreds of “Numbers Stations”.

Shortwave Numbers Stations are a perfect method of anonymous, one way communication. Spies located anywhere in the world can be communicated to by their masters via small, locally available, and unmodified Shortwave receivers. The encryption system used by Numbers Stations, known as a “one time pad” is unbreakable. Combine this with the fact that it is almost impossible to track down the message recipients once they are inserted into the enemy country, it becomes clear just how powerful the Numbers Station system is.
