Bleep Labs Workshop Series Featuring The Spectroseq & Ganz-O

Dadgeek example - The Spectroseq

Published on Sep 12, 2016 Bleep Labs

via Bleep Labs: "I’ll be teaching a new workshop series for Dadageek starting next week. The classes are designed to be an absolute beginners guide to making light and sound with analog and Arduino. It will be once a week for 6 weeks with a final exhibition of what you create. The price is $250 and includes the materials, Arduino, bread board, components etc, that you get to keep!"

Video description:

"There's still time to sign up for my new workshop series! Starts Sept 20th!

Here's a device I put together as an example for my classes at Dadageek.

It's a light painter where each row of 8 is read in order with the hue of the pixel controlling the pitch. Eight sine waves are independently controlled by the 8 rows while the eight columns are the steps.

This was a quick project to show what can be done with just a few components and some code.
More info on the class here.

The 'screen is made of two pieces of thick Baltic birch that were cut on the cnc the have holes for each APA102. The from is just a piece of delrin. A teensy using its audio.h library is doing all the work.
You can check out the code here."

Dadageek example - Ganz-O

"Here's a device I put together as an example for my classes at Dadageek.
It's kind of a relaxation device that slowly changes color while lightning flashes and static swells. The rate is changed when it's touched.

This was a quick project to show what can be done with just a few components and some code.
More info on the class here.

The screen is made thick piece of acrylic that's been CNCd with a simple pattern I made in blender. A teensy using its audio.h library is doing all the work.
You can check out the code here."

Blue Roland SH-101

via this auction

"Up for grabs is a perfectly working SH-101. It was just professionally calibrated so the oscillator is in tune up and down all octaves meaning you can use this live and in the studio... Only issues with this synth are cosmetic- the blue plastic is faded is some areas as is the lettering. Also there is some small scuffs and tape residue on the case as well as a few missing screws from the bottom. Nothing that affects the sound or performance of the instrument."

Black madness forms the clones
Preserve the beast with robot drones
Transhuman desires will get us there
Filter the waste to breath the air
You can take what you want
So you take what you want
I don't know why you don't know this at all?
And you don't know why I don't want it at all

ZVex Instant Lo-fi Junky Eurorack module

Published on Sep 12, 2016 Leslie Rollins

"Demos are not my strong suit but as I got this a bit early and there is some curiosity built up around it I've tried to do my basic best. This is a simple drum loop taken from a Radio Music module. I try to make my finger movements on the knobs pretty obvious and also tried to keep my hand out of the way as best I could. This is only exploring manual knob and switch adjustments of the module. I might do one with CV manipulation from other modules if there's interest. If there's something you'd REALLY like to see feel free to let me know and I'll try to accommodate your request. I'm planning to do a similar video for the Fuzz Factory, and then probably a short one of both of them working at once to create magic.

Please recall, this is not my sweet spot. There's no real creativity in this. Yes I know the loop is boring. But I was trying to cover the basics so folks can get some sense of the pallette available. Cheers!"

Dave Smith Instruments "In The Spotlight with the PRO 2" with ROCAsound

The fifth in Dave Smith Instruments' "In The Spotlight with the PRO 2" series is currently up with SEBASTIAN AROCHA MORTON, aka ROCAsound here.

"Composer/Producer/Remixer Sebastian Arocha Morton (aka ROCAsound) graduated from Berklee College of Music and moved to Los Angeles to begin what would become a very fruitful and successful career in Electronic Music Production and Film Scoring.

Crumar Multiman String Synthesizer Orchestrator

via this auction

"Crumar Multiman string synthesizer recently serviced, in 100% functional condition. This is the early version of the Crumar Orchestrator and has the same features minus the string brightness slider and volume/brass pedal connections. The brass section has a true voltage controlled filter similar to the moog design, the string section is very lush and compared to the ARP solina and the piano/clavichord is similar to the RMI electra piano. All very vintage and usable sounds packed into one machine. The faders have been cleaned and the entire unit was re-capped to provide stability for years to come. Cosmetically, the metal panel has scratches and scuffs, but the physical integrity of the instrument is very strong; it's built like a tank. Comes with the original lid."
