Standalone virtual MS-20

by bdu on May.13, 2009, under DIY, media, plug-ins, software, video

OK, this is just too cool. This guy took the mainboard of his little eeepc and fitted it into the Korg Legacy Collection MS-20 USB controller, creating a standalone device. If he took it just a little further and routed audio I/O, USB (host), and VGA out to the side panel, it would be even better!

New free plugin from the OhmForce crew, with a wonderfully child-like UI:

Roland TR-707 pictures

A friend of a friend needs a 707 to stand in for his 909 on tour, and having one that I never use, I’m happy to pass it on to someone who will use it. But of course, I must take pictures first!

Full flickr set here.

ModDemod video demo

by bdu on Apr.12, 2009, under media, modular, video

I apologize for the camera audio, I don’t have the time to record and sync up… so you get what you get.

That said, here’s a quick demo using two PlanB model 15 oscillators feeding one half of the MakeNoise ModDemod dual ring modulator.

I botched the modulation bit, instead of grabbing the heisenberg’s stepped out, I just unplugged the smooth out from one VCO and put it into the other one. Oh well, you can’t get ‘em all 100% right, and I had no time for a re-take.

MakeNoise ModDemod is in the house. No time to play until the weekend, but you get pictures now.

The ModDemod is a dual passive ring modulator, in case you didn’t know…

Some modular sound

Dubstep with the modular from Brandon Daniel on Vimeo.

Drums are 808, the rest is NM G2 and the eurorack modular (or the former processed with the latter).

Buchla Balloon

by bdu on Jan.18, 2009, under 2009, NAMM, media, modular, pictures

The Noisebug booth was full of these balloons Buchla and Associates had made for the show.

I’d never thought of the 200e as particularly “epicurean”, but maybe someone else feels differently…
