D16 tackling the SH101?

by bdu on Aug.10, 2009, under media, non-modular synths, pictures, plug-ins, software

Seems like D16 may be working on an SH-101 plugin. I’m all for it if they do as good a job on this as they did with the 808/909. I could use a few more instances of my real 101, I just can’t get enough of that sound.

That said, based upon this image it looks like they’re implementing an arpeggiator but no sequencer. The SH-101 sequencer was so easy to use and fun to churn out simple patterns with that its omission would really bum me out. Don’t do it D16! Do this one up right!

Thanks to Waveformless for the heads-up.

Computer Controlled

The latest thing in analog is digital. Computer control of CV direct through a DC-capable audio interface.

So I acquired such an audio interface and the two plugins that have been released for these purposes, MOTU’s Volta and Expert Sleepers’ Silent Way.

I’m using a non-MOTU interface, so there are some kinks to work out there with Volta, but MOTU is being plenty helpful, and I trust we’ll get things worked out eventually. In the meantime, here’s Silent Way controlling my 101 via my simplified CV/Gate test rig. 6 octaves of perfect tuning!

History of Ableton Live

by bdu on May.19, 2009, under software

There’s always been a lot of misinformation about how Live got it’s start or was prototyped, here’s a page with the first-person story about how Live came about and is developed today. It’s worth a read.

Standalone virtual MS-20

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:

Also, they made sure to note that you are not to use it unless you agree completely with the license agreement:

Ha!
