I was nosing around at the Pandora forums and found this thread, which just goes to show that there are plenty of people already thinking about using this device for sound.
I picked this up from RetroThing it looks amazing. I especially like the fact that it almost looks like a little cassette too.
It strikes me as the kind of device that could maybe even rival the DS in the future.
I bought my Boss Micro BR last month and so far haven’t used it much until today. I needed to get my head around some basslines for a gig and I hadn’t played them in years, so I used the Micro BR as a little practice machine, and it worked really well. I realise that this isn’t a true test of its capabilities, but a good first step. I have to say that so far I like the unit, although the centre cancel feature on it produced some very strange results.
Anyway, I thought I’d also point you at a good review from Sound on Sound.
Another little video for your viewing delight!
I had a quick look today and the LarvaLabs site has been updated since the last time I looked, but I can’t see a way to get these apps?
There’s a brief update of what’s going on over at GrooveStep on their site. Still no release date, but hopefully that’ll come soon.
Also, they’re at the CDM Futuristic Music design challenge:
April 10, 2008 – GrooveStep will be competing this weekend in the CDM Futuristic Music Design Challenge taking place at Yuri’s Night Bay Area 2008! If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, April 12, 2008, and want to try out GrooveStep in person, please stop by the CDM Lounge after the competition. The competition takes place 2:30-3:30PM and we’ll be at the lounge afterwards for a few hours.
Thanks to (M. H. D.) for this translation of the latest post on the Korg DS-10 blog:
It basically says that they are working on getting all the bugs found and fixed and that because they’re busy doing that, there aren’t going to be any new additions included on top of what they already have.
They’re fixing bugs as fast as they can find them, but new ones keep popping up, “There’s another enemy!” “There’s a scary one!”
He makes a funny reference to feeling like the snot-nosed Nobita-kun asking Doraemon for a fantastic machine invention to get them out of the fix they’re in.
They aren’t saying it’s not going to come out in July, just that there’s not going to be any new additions. July seemed far away, but now it’s closer than they thought.
Not a big shock really when you think about it as it is a very ambitious project overall.
Take a look over at his blog. Excellent work.
