Drum Robot MR-808 Interactive - Massive Acoustic Roland TR-808 Art Installation

Published on Aug 18, 2016

"The Drum Robot MR-808 Interactive at the Krake Festival Berlin."

Some of you might remember the Sonic Robots MR-808 from this post back in 2012.  It looks like it was shown at a number of festivals.  You can find the list of events on the right of the Sonic Robots website here.  The following are some details and pics via Sonic Robots:

"MR-808 interactive is a drum robot installation featuring an oversized robotic drum machine which is programmed live by the spectators!

The audience can program the drum robot in a collaborative process and listen to the emerging of the sound. At the exhibition site, the crowd can stand in front of the robot, composing the music in realtime.

The drum robot installation MR-808 Interactive (2015) is intended for a collaborative music creation process which turn the listener from a passive spectator to an active player, visualizing the ongoing bond of mobile digital interfaces and physical actions.

The original installation MR-808 was developed in 2012 by the collective Sonic Robots under the direction of Moritz Simon Geist. It got an upgrade with the interactive part in 2015 / 2016. The drum robot has so far been presented on various events, from techno club nights to media and hacking congresses. The robot installation is a replica of the famous 1980s electronic drum machine TR-808 with robots playing the drum sounds. For the installation eleven sounds of the 80s drum computer TR-808 are replaced by mechanical actuators and physical tone-makers. You can read more about the technique and background here."

The First Computer Generated Music? - Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II

Above is a recording of Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II computer used to generate music. According to the title, it is the first recording of computer music. The following are a couple of excerpts on the piece from the tech blog Engadget, followed by the British Library Sound and Vision blog. Both imply that Alan Turing's machine was the first computer to generate music. I was curious about the timeline, so I took look at at 120 Years of Electronic Music, which is a running list of the history of pivotal instruments in electronic music. Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II is not yet listed. The RCA Synthesizer, however is, and is dated 1951. There were two versions of the RCA Synthesizer, the Mark I and the Mark II which came later in 1957. There was also a computer located in Sydney, Australia that generated music in the 1950s. Based on the following, Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II first generated music in 1948. It's not clear when work on the RCA Mark I may have generated it's first sounds, however it appears it was completed in 1951. There were two previous instruments that influenced the RCA Mark I, namely, Givelet Coupleux Organ of 1930 and the Hanert Electric Orchestra in 1945, however, they do not appear to have been computer based like the RCA Mark 1, or Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II. Worth noting is the the RCA synthesizers were specifically created to generate music, while, Alan Turing's Manchester Mark II was not.

via Engadget:

"Alan Turing is known for a few small achievements, like helping end World War II, laying the groundwork for modern computers and developing the 'Turing test' for machine intelligence. You may not be aware, however, that he paved the way for synthesizers and electronica by inventing the first computer-generated musical tones. A pair of researchers from the University of Cantebury have now restored the first-ever recording made from Turing's 'synthesizer.'

Turing figured that if he rapidly played clicking sounds at set intervals, the listener would here them as distinct tones corresponding to musical notes. For instance, playing the click on every fourth cycle of a computers' CPU produces a 'C' tone, exactly like a modern synthesizer. He tested that theory on his Manchester Mark I, one of the world's first programmable computers. Instead of making music, he used the tones to indicate computing operations like completed tasks and memory overflow errors (meaning he also invented notification sounds).

Turing knew that he could program songs on his 'synth,' but had no interest in doing it. Luckily, talented programmer and musician Christopher Strachey got his hands on the Manchester Mark II's operating guide, which was, by the way, the world's first computer manual. Using that, he coded God Save the Queen, the longest program ever at the time. The next morning, he played it back to surprised onlookers at the lab, including Turing, who was uncharacteristically thrilled, saying 'good show.'"

And via the British Library Sound and Vision blog:

"Today, all that remains of the recording session is a 12-inch single-sided acetate disc, cut by the BBC's technician while the computer played. The computer itself was scrapped long ago, so the archived recording is our only window on that historic soundscape. What a disappointment it was, therefore, to discover that the pitches were not accurate: the recording gave at best only a rough impression of how the computer sounded. But with some electronic detective work it proved possible to restore the recording—with the result that the true sound of this ancestral computer can be heard once again, for the first time in more than half a century.

Fig. 2: The original 'acetate' disc was saved by Manchester University engineer Frank Cooper (Photo courtesy of Chris Burton)

Alan Turing's pioneering work, in the late 1940s, on transforming the computer into a musical instrument has largely been overlooked: it's an urban myth of the music world that the first computer-generated musical notes were heard in 1957, at Bell Labs in America.1 The recent Oxford Handbook of Computer Music staked out a counterclaim, saying that the first computer to play notes was located in Sydney, Australia. However, the Sydney computer was not operational until the end of 1950, whereas computer-generated notes were emerging from a loudspeaker in Turing's computing lab as early as the autumn of 1948."

On the RCA Synthesizer via 120 years:

"In the 1950’s RCA was one of the largest entertainment conglomerates in the United States; business interests included manufacturing record players, radio and electronic equipment (military and domestic – including the US version of the Theremin) as well as recording music and manufacturing records. In the early 50’s RCA initiated a unusual research project whose aim was to auto-generate pop ‘hits’ by analysing thousands of music recordings; the plan being that if they could work out what made a hit a hit, they could re-use the formula and generate their own hit pop music. The project’s side benefit also explored the possibility of cutting the costs of recording sessions by automating arrangements and using electronically generated sounds rather than expensive (and unionised) orchestras; basically, creating music straight from score to disc without error or re-takes.

The RCA electrical engineers Harry Olson and Hebart Belar were appointed to develop an instrument capable of delivering this complex task, and in doing so inadvertently (as is so often the case in the history of electronic music) created one of the first programmable synthesisers – the precursors being the Givelet Coupleux Organ of 1930 and the Hanert Electric Orchestra in 1945.

The resulting RCA Mark I machine was a monstrous collection of modular components that took up a whole room at Columbia University’s Computer Music Center (then known as the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center). The ‘instrument’ was basically an analogue computer; the only input to the machine was a typewriter-style keyboard where the musician wrote a score in a type of binary code."

ALM Introduces the ALM015 Akemie's Taiko & ALM016 PE-1 dual band parametric EQ

ALM015 - Akemies Taiko from ALM on Vimeo.

Details on the ALM015 Akemie's Taiko via ALM:

"‘Akemie’s Taiko’ is an authentic complete FM synthesis based drum voice created using original Yamaha IC’s. It builds on the same technology used in the mighty Akemie’s Castle but in a more complete triggered voice form featuring both signal generation and envelope shaping.

The module provides CV and direct control over a number of FM parameters including algorithm selection, operator release envelopes, ratios, waveforms & feedback. This gives a massive range of unique sounds.

The voice is able to track 1 volt per octave allowing it to be used for melodic lines as well as percussion. Also optional ‘frequency ramps’ can be enabled for additional audio effects.

The drum voice includes a trigger input as well as accent and choke trigger inputs to add further expressive and rhythmic control.


Complete drum voice with authentic 4 Operator / 6 Algorithm / 8 Waveform / Feedback FM
Full voltage control including Algorithm selection.
Inbuilt envelopes with separate release control of FM carriers and modulator.
Tracks 1v per octave for melody lines.
Optional Frequency ‘ramps’ for for further effects and FM
Trigger, accent and choke trigger inputs.
Reverse polarity protection.
Skiff friendly.
Designed and Made in the UK.
Can tear holes in space time."

And details on the ALM016 PE-1:

"‘PE-1’ is a dual band parametric EQ and simple two channel mixer. Two control sections provide a sweepable cut or boost to a selectable upper and lower frequency band. The module has two ac-coupled audio inputs, one of which has an attenuation control for basic mixing, and a single audio output.

The ‘PE-1’ is inspired by the EQ circuits used in early ‘Portastudio’ type 4 track tape mixers. Warm up a digital source, fine control a live performance, extend a mixer, tweak a feedback loop – there are many uses for this great sounding EQ.


Provides +/-12db of boost and cut across 2 selected frequency bands
Dual input with single attenuation control
Reverse polarity protection.
Skiff friendly.
Designed and Made in the UK."

Jupiter 4 vs. Teisco SX400 chorus comparison.

Published on Sep 26, 2016 Lackan110f

"The Teisco SX400 is a very close copy of the famous Roland Jupiter 4. Most of the SX400-functions are copied straight of the JP4. When it comes to sound they are pretty close, the Teisco being somewhat softer and the JP4 sounding harder.

The biggest difference is the chorus. When the JP4 has a 2 x BBD-chorus the Teisco have a 3 x BBD-chorus. Here you can hear the difference between them."

Send Midi notes to Elastic Drums in Modstep via IAA Midi

Published on Sep 26, 2016 Oliver Greschke

"When you use Elastic Drums as IAA Instrument, you have to do nothing to make ED sync correctly, nor to send Midi notes to ED from Modstep. It all works automatically via IAA (Apples Inter-App-Audio technology).
IAA will send sync informations to ED and IAA will also send Midi notes without you having to change anything - neither in Modstep nor in Elastic Drums. Leave ED's midi settings to the default "No port / IAA midi" settings. And just send the correct midi notes from Modstep. Maybe have a look at the scale settings in Modstep. Set them to chromatic, to be able to send every note.
Modstep might behave similar with other apps, that have IAA properly incorporated.
Thanks Modstep and Bill Jobs for the presets ;)"
