Ornament and Crime chords: a spring depression

Published on Apr 17, 2018 NONsynth

Let this one develop.

"Finally got around to testing out the Harrington 1200 mode on the Ornament and Crime, using the Audio damage Sequencer 1 to conjure up some minor chordal goodness. Patch notes below:

Bass voice is Rings with an envelope on the brightness to get more of a bass guitar sound - into Sputnik 4-tap for a bit of ping pong because I can't resist.

The Sequencer 1 sends pitch and gate to the o_C in Harrington 1200 mode. The CV1 and CV2 channels are used to control chord inversions and octave switching. The Accent trigger out is sent to some weird switching input for the Tonnetz whatchamacallit transformations. The four pitch outs go from the o_C to the Roland System 500 512 oscillators and the two Shapeshifter oscillators, all into the System 500 530 VCA to the 521 VCF to the Audio Damage Dimensions chorus to a Disting stereo reverb and out.

The whole patch goes through the Boss RV-6 reverb and I threw some drums on in Reaper for good measure."

2hp - Verb (lush HQ stereo Eurorack FX)

Published on Apr 17, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Here's my next video in the #2hpTuesday series of videos with the excellent range of 2hp modules. These small modules are deceptive, they pack in a tonne of quality sounds and functions into a small space. Here we have 'Verb' a lush high quality stereo reverb with stereo in and out, time and damp controls and a mix to blend dry / wet with a CV input to also control that mix amount. Here we go through the sounds and then look into drones, feedback patching to create oscillators, used as send FX, random modulation over frantic drum patterns and using the reverb pre VCA for some nice modulated and unique tones.

April 2018 CMOS noise machine + FXs

Published on Apr 15, 2018 stolenfat11

"Built into an old suitcase, this noise machine utilizes a CV starve sequencer to create an entire universe of different sounds. It's mega fun if your into wild crazy and unpredictable noise.

4017 sequencer + 40106 clocks/oscillator bank, 4082 logic gate, 4040 divider, 4046 VCO, 471 WSG filter (MFOS), 4069 Fuzz unit, pt2399 echo/delay.

A very cool and fun experiment which I'm quite happy with. I had great time building this and added some graphics to the video to hopefully help others make their own variants on this idea. Keep building amigos!"

ENHANCIA Launches MIDI Ring Controller Neova on Kickstarter

You might remember Enhancia's ring controller from this post back in January.

They are now on Kickstarter.

"Grenoble, France. April 17, 2018: ENHANCIA is pleased to announce that MIDI ring Neova will be available for pre-sale on Kickstarter on April 17, 2018 at 17:00 UTC+2. The campaign will continue until May 17, 2018 and ENHANCIA set out the goal of $50,000 to finish the product development and manufacturing.

Neova is a MIDI ring controller that lets musicians control any musical effect with natural hand gestures. The ring comes with a hub that connects via USB to the computer or via MIDI with instruments that supports it. Neova synchronizes to any DAW and compatible with any software synthesizers and MIDI controllers.

“As a musician, I believe that emotion is the purpose of each melody. In musical performance, subtlety is a key. Every intention, every micro-gesture should be captured to reflect the intensity of your feeling as truthfully as possible. We imagined Neova with the simple idea of creating the shortest path between your musical intention and music creation” - says Enhancia’s co-founder and CEO Damien Le Boulaire.

Neova is designed with 9 motion sensors which have highly accurate gesture recognition algorithms. They enable to control musical effects naturally and only when intended to. The gesture library consists of following intuitive movements:

● Vibrato, Bend and Tilt specifically designed to enhance the play on the instrument.
● Wave and Roll let musicians control the music in the air.

To give musicians instant responsivity, ENHANCIA created its own wireless proprietary protocol which is optimized for ultra low latency. The technology is 8 times more reactive than Bluetooth with unparalleled 2ms of latency. The overall system is a patented technology."

FACT review: ROLI Blocks

Published on Apr 17, 2018 FACTmagazine

"New innovations in hardware design are making music production easier and more accessible than it’s ever been. Spearheading this revolution is ROLI, a UK startup that has challenged perceptions of electronic interfaces with its Seaboard RISE controller, a keyboard that responds to strikes, glides, slides and lifts like an acoustic instrument.

ROLI’s latest system, Blocks, aims to take this technology to the mainstream. This modular, snap-together collection of controllers can be used to make rhythms, play notes, generate chords and add effects, either by using them with Ableton Live, GarageBand and other compatible software or with ROLI’s own mobile app, NOISE.

With the recent introduction of the Seaboard Block and updated Lightpad Block M, we decided it was the ideal time to give Blocks and NOISE a go for ourselves in the first of a new series of video reviews from FACT’s Make Music section. Are Blocks as good to make music with as they look? Watch above to find out our verdict."
