Now there’s a sneak peek of the OP-Z and it’s got me hooked already

I do like Teenage Engineering, the OP-Z has been of particular interest. This (very long) video shows just how compelling the OP-Z is. I’m especially interested in how small this device is. It reminds me of the VL-10 in terms of size, and highly pocketable.

Bastl Instruments Cuckoo Documentary 2017

I’ve been watching the work of Bastl Instruments for a long time, and you may remember me posting about their awesome Kastle micro (or perhaps it is nano-modular) last year.

Well now there’s a full documentary about their work. I haven’t had time to watch all of it as yet, but I certainly will as I think that their products are excellent, fun, and a great place to start if you’re interested in hardware and micro-modular synths.

Quantum VJ HD arrives from Mr NightRadio

I’m a long time fan of all things from Mr NightRadio, from apps to hardware and on an esoteric variety of platforms too. Now he’s brought something from his hardware creations into the world of apps, which is an interesting move.

Quantum VJ HD is a simple glitch-style audio visualizer (video generator). It can receive sound from the microphone or from the Line-in port (depends on the system settings). Sound will be converted to the graphic elements byte by byte. The final video can be mixed with the camera stream in real time.

iTunes File Sharing and Wi-Fi can be used, if you want to upload your own codeset images to the app.

  • Multitouch control – pair of parameters for each new touch
    • 1st Touch – changing the Mode (horizontally) and the Power (vertically) parameters.
    • 2nd Touch – changing the Color (horizontally) and the Noise (vertically) parameters.
    • 3rd Touch – changing the Camera (horizontally) and the Resolution (vertically) parameters.
    • 4th Touch – changing the Brightness (horizontally) and the Speed (vertically) parameters.
  • Press on the top left corner to hide/show the control panel (fullscreen mode ON/OFF).

Limitations
Video export is temporarily not available in iOS version.

Quantum VJ HD costs $1.99 (£1.49) on the app store now:

TC-Helicon releases Vidial

A new app appears from TC-Helicon, Vidial comes out today and is their platform for artists to create video. It looks good, and I’m keen to try it out.

Here’s how TC-Helicon describes Vidial:

Music is as much about the eyes as it is the ears. Our goal with VIDIAL is to give you the tools you need for creating great music videos, in both sight and sound, anytime anywhere.

VIDIAL is designed to make you look at sound better. With little to no technical ability, VIDIAL turns your smart device into a powerful audio/video production studio, letting you capture, trim, add filters and more to produce more creative and visually compelling videos.

Capture performances within the app, so you never miss that awe-inspiring moment – or import, export and save to your camera roll to edit later. With VIDIAL’s elegant and ultra easy-to-use design, you can share it on your favorite social channel with just a few touches and swipes.

But, it doesn’t end there…VIDIAL brings with it built-in music video playlists for sharing your VIDIALS with the people that matter to you. Our exclusive music video playlists allows you to see what music videos are trending, and share your videos with an audience hungry for one thing – new music.

As artists, and on behalf of artists everywhere around the world, VIDIAL has been created for you, and for people from all corners of the world who may have not otherwise known of you to share in your journey.
