Loopy Masterpiece: MIDI Clock Receiving (video)

Video description:

“I’m still working on The Spectacular Sync Engine this week, and talking about what’s involved in making a stable MIDI clock receiver. Hopefully it’s not all gibberish (I don’t even see the code – just blonde, brunette…).

Last few days for Mikme on Kickstarter

It’s got just a little time left and it doesn’t look like it’ll make it sadly.

MonoStereo Synthesizer arrives and it’s free too

MonoStereo Synthesizer is a free full-featured analog mono synth with oscillator panning.

Why another mono synth?
Well, because I thought it would be fun to make one! This one does have one thing you rarely find, and that’s oscillator panning. With this you can create some nice effects using an LFO for the pan and also create wide stereo lead sounds easily!

The synth is completely free with no in-apps. If you feel the need to pay something for it, go see a gig by a local band! If that doesn’t cover it, buy their t-shirt! (or their CD if you have one of those CD-players we used to have 3 years ago)

Features:

  • Minimalistic size, fast loading time and CoreMIDI Support!
  • 3 Oscillators with customisable waveform (sine, square, saw), phase, level, detune and pan
  • Lowpass and Highpass filters
  • 2 LFO’s with customisable targets from filter values to oscillator panning and detune
  • Filter and Amp Envelopes
  • Portamento (almost named that ‘Glide’ but came to my senses. Portamento is portamento!)
  • Delay and Chorus effects (very basic, I know)
  • A few presets
  • Saving and loading your own sounds
  • Virtual keyboard

The app is free …

And one more of these RareBeasts little devices …

The Raptutron is a one of a kind handmade analog synth

This device has three main controls, the top control changes the frequency and the other two chop up the noise by fast modulating the sounds.

Here is a short YouTube video showing the Raptutron in action:

This synthesizer is made from a beautiful piece reclaimed Tasmanian Huon pine and finished using natural wood oils.

The output is via a 1/4in mono socket which can be plugged into earphones, a computer sound card, mixer or amplifier.

* The Raptutron – is powered by a Common 9v Battery which is not included due to shipping restrictions.

EM-Tronic small handmade synth on Etsy

I do like nice little hand made synths, so I thought I’d share this one from RareBeasts …

The EM-Tronic is a small handmade synth that makes a large range of electronic music sounds.

If you want to hear what the EM-Tronic sounds like, I have uploaded a small YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm2K51MhHh8

With the combination of pitch, speed and mode controls, giving endless combination of sounds this Synthesizer packs quite a punch for it’s size.

Main controls:
Pitch: the pitch control allows you to make, 127 tones and 127 white noise variations.

Speed: The speed control has different functions depending on what mode is set, but essentially, it sets the time a tone or tones are played and repeated.

Mode: the EM-Tronic has three modes, mode 1 is basic and gives a bleep at the pitch and duration you set. mode 2 is delay mode, this mode gives a delay effect as you move the pitch control up and down. Mode three includes a delay and multiple notes played rapidly.

The output is via a 3.5mm stereo socket which can be plugged into earphones, a computer sound card, mixer or amplifier.

All you need to start making sounds, is a pair of earphones and a common 9 volt battery.
