Interesting use of Griff. Nice.
A good brief summary of the Zoom PS04. I’m still thinking about that new Boss Micro-BR, but my friend Paul tells me that the Zoom is better and has more features.
I have to take out some time to do a decent review of Griff, but this is a good start. I never got Z4 Music. Perhaps I’ll get it soon?
Another little review of Bhajis Loops. I’m amazed at how many people have raved about Bhajis Loops and taken the time to review it.
Good reviews of Bhajis Loops / Microbe and other music software like Psytexx. Definitely worth checking out this blog.
Interesting stuff on Leonardo Electronic Alamanac…
Good post on the use of BeatPad and external MIDI hardware. Nice shot of a Palm M515 running it all. Interesting blog too.
Now that is cool. I like the look of the PSP, but I couldn’t buy one on account I have no real use for it. Perhaps I will do at some point?
The SG20 was the very first module I got. It fitten onto the base of my palm IIIx and was slightly smaller than a packet of cigarettes. It was a GM module that had a midi in/out box that you could attach to it, although I never used this.
The quality of the sounds was excellent, and I always enjoyed using it, but as with all these things you get to a point where you say, actually it is too big / cumbersome / too many bits of kit to lug about, and that’s what happened. In a way I wish I’d kept it, but I know I wouldn’t use it at all.
When I started with music on PDAs I had to use a MIDI modules for anything like decent sounds. One of my favourite modules was for the Visor PDA which had proprietory modules called springboards. The module was about the size of a book of matches, it had 128 midi sounds on board, and a headphone jack. It powered itself from the visor PDA. Nice.
The sound wasn’t bad at all really. The module responded to MiniMusic NotePad and BeatPad software.
The visor was a cool device and the modules were fun too. Shame they didn’t stick around.
More on modules soon…
