Here’s a little preview of what we’re going to be we’re going to be showcasing at the Royal Festival Hall this Saturday (6th September!).
We’re syncing three iPads together, all running different NOiZE instruments, to create a very futuristic “Digital Band”.
Created for the The Beautiful Octopus Club, the largest multi-media club night in London, we wanted to make an experience that was accessible and sounded great! Any one can turn up and jam on our intuitive instruments – you don’t need to be a musician!
Come down and play this Saturday! We’re excited to hear what you make!
Available late this year apparently.
Nice to see King Crimson using this!
E–Theremin MKII arrives. Here are the details.
Turning your iPad in to a classic sounding theremin.
The E-Theremin MkII translates the unique and distinctly eerie sound of the theremin onto a digital interface, allowing you to control pitch and volume on a x/y pad. A second x/y pad is provided for controlling vibrato. Additional controls are accessible for control of the waveform, low pass filter, and envelopes. Two DSP effects; reverb and delay let you take your sound to a whole new level. The reverb’s room size can be set to small room all the way up to unearthly vast spaces.
Get the that classic sci-fi / horror sound!
Get the E-Theremin MkII!
The app costs $1.99.
Although I’m going to be a Music Tech Fest again today it’ll only be briefly to announce one of the challenges for the Hack camp on behalf of SoundLab and Heart n Soul.
I’m sure it’s going to be an excellent day and there will be loads more interesting ideas being presented. I’m actually a bit sorry that I can’t spend more time there today, but hopefully I can make up for that tomorrow.
If you’re there, hope to see you.
And there were some really interesting things, all of which require a lot more investigation in terms of their possibilities. I think it was a great kick off to the Music Tech Fest weekend though. They really do pack in a huge amount of content into what was quite a small time frame, so you end up almost overwhelmed by the sheer number of ideas and concepts that are presented.
Having said that there was some pretty amazing stuff in there, and when I’ve had a chance to digest it properly I’ll try and do it a bit more justice.
