Libretto Reborn!

Well, finally I’ve got ReBirth running on my Libretto 70CT. The downside is that it has to run with a CD-ROM, but there’s a way around that.

I think the Libretto is now going to be a useful part of my mobile studio now, which I’m glad about as I won’t have to sell it!

Letter published in Computer Music

I wrote a letter to Computer Music magazine a few weeks back and they’ve published it!

The letter is all about handheld music, and specifically Bhajis Loops. Whilst it didn’t get letter of the month it is the next one on the letters page entitled “Polyphonic Pockets” and even has a photo of a Zire 72 running Bhajis (taken from the Chocopoolp site I imagine).

The editor says at the end of the letter that they’re going to run a feature on handheld music in the future. I plan to contact him about it to offer help / links etc.

If I get any more information about a feature I’ll share that too.

iTMS-DJ?

This is an interesting idea, although the actual site doesn’t seem to allow a download as yet. Again, a cool idea if it could at some point be ported to iPod?

Capers: Anyone interested in taking the code further?

The next step with the capers project is to find someone to take on the code and take it further. Any takers out there?

Akai MPC-500: Why go there?


I’ve read a few articles about the MPC500. It does sound interesting, and the hacked OS from JJ sounds interesting as well, but I have to ask myself, why would I spend £500 for a unit that only acts as a music device. £500 could buy me a new TX or LifeDrive, or both for that matter.

A friend of mine has pointed out to me that devices that are built specifically for music applications are often faster and sound better. I think that might be true to a point, but somewhere along the line you have to say what’s more important? A device that’s really good at music and lots of other stuff too, or one that is designed just for music?

I know where my money is.

Run PC apps on a Palm?


Does this mean that I could run Rebirth on my Palm T3 alongside Bhajis Loops? Who know, we’ll have to wait and see what pans out with the beta version if it appears.

Capers: Code to be released SOON!!!

I’ve just got an email from the developer of the code for capers. He says he is planning on releasing all the source for hedgehog / eggtimer /capers libs sometime soon.

As soon as I know more I’ll post on this again.
