Randgrid: First look


I’ve been playing with Randgrid this morning and getting used to the interface. It reminds me so much of the sound of Windows mobile apps like Phoenix Studio and PocketJam. The sound is really crisp and clear and the controls are easy enough to pick up within a few minutes. On the whole the app is well worth the £3.99.

As I mentioned yesterday, the site says the following:

This is a pre release of Randgrid, exiting new features are currently being developed and added, while some might change.

And in fact the site has been updated since I took a look at it yesterday. I’ll keep a close eye on how this one develops.

Make your own MIDI adapter for older Palms


I stumbled over this page by accident. It has some really useful information for doing MIDI stuff with older palm units.


There’s also some basic info on coding MIDI using cbaspad if you’re interesting in that.

Interestingly the site says the following:

I’d like to see how this one develops.

Auduino

Auduino from Tinker.it! on Vimeo.

This is an interesting use of the Arduino.

The Auduino is a sound synthesiser based on the Arduino platform. The prototype uses the Arduino Diecimila, although any Arduino running at 16MHz will work fine. It uses granular synthesis techniques to generate a distinctive filter-sweep sound that had much more character than boring square waves.

It sounds like there are quite a lot of possibilities here, if of course you have an Arduino in the first place. The site has some interesting links, including the video about and this Flckr set of a really nice cased Auduino.
