Evening at Salinas with Glo, the Polyphonic Whale

Published on Dec 23, 2018 Gecho Loopsynth

"Roaming the salt evaporation pond with a tiny digital real-time sound processor that you can fit into your pocket. Glo has many tricks upon his sleeve; so far we implemented reverbs, delays, loopers, low and high pass filters, granular samplers - and working on more. Find it at:

It is an open platform with DIY possibilities. There is a half-priced tier - a bare engine that you need to make an enclosure for.

This video was recorded with Canon EOS 550D running Magic Lantern firmware (to disable AGC and set up sound levels manually), then cut in AfterFX - as usual, no post-processing or added effects."

Merry Christmas from SYNTH-WERK...

"Dear friends of SYNTH-WERK,

We are now almost 6 years in operation and we are very happy and excited about the fantastic relationship between you and us.
Thank you for your trust and support in 2018.

'The designs of a musical instrument include two important aspects. The technical aspect but also the human aspect, which allows the musician to get in resonance with the instrument. The user interface is a major part but there is even more to be considered. It is important for the constructor of such devices to find the right balance between the two aspects. If the technical aspect is the only one considered you might get a perfect product, based to measurement results, but if the musician is not able to get in resonance with the instrument, you failed.
None of the modules of a Moog Modular are perfect in terms of measurement results or the technical aspect. They are changing their behavior depending on temperature and other influences but they value the human aspect and are very well balanced between the technical and the human point of view. Bob Moog was a genius as an engineer, but he was also a philosopher balancing the two aspects.'
Gerhard Mayrhofer

'When you connect with an instrument, no matter of what sort, there is an interaction that’s outside of what’s actually going through your fingers. I hesitate to use the word ‘spiritual’, but I’m absolutely sure that there is a consciousness that we connect with.'
Bob Moog

We wish you and your families a merry Christmas and a peaceful 2019!"

Interview w/ Michael Tyson: Creator of Audiobus, Loopy, TAAE, Samplebot, and more

Published on Dec 23, 2018 MATTHEW FECHER

"Michael Tyson is one of the single most important people in the iOS Music world. He changed history. Before Audiobus, music apps could not communicate with each other. Audiobus was the precursor to technologies such as Inter-app Audio (IAA) and the Plugin format AUv3.

Musicians including Robert Plant (Led Zepplin) and Billy Joel have used his apps on national Television. He reveals how he was traveling around Europe in an RV. Then, how he had an #1 app virtually overnight and he was able to buy house. And, other crazy stories...

Moog MF 104m Screaming midi Overclocking

Published on Dec 23, 2018 UFO LFO

"I got this thing set on AUM midi clock 400+ BPM and I think I may have overrun it's limit's. There is a lot of interesting things to be had midi over and underclocking this moog machine. My guess is the chorus flange sweet spot is somewhere in the 300 to 350 BPM range. Square wave modulation is interesting sound discovery"

Podcast 257: Eric Singer

Published on Dec 16, 2018 20Objects

You can find some of Eric Singer's work featured in the archives here. Be sure to see Part 2 in 20Objects interview with Eric Singer below.

"I'm pretty sure you know Eric Singer's work. Some of his most well-known work includes Pat Metheny's 'The Orchestrion Project', but he's been doing robotic musical instruments for a long time. I remember the first time I saw a video of Eric work - it was the reveal for the Guitarbot, and it was jaw-dropping at the time.

Eric was a maker before there was such a thing, and was doing cool robots when robots weren't part of artistic practice. He was learning machining, embedded coding and electronic design when those phrases were more industrial 'work' than creative 'play'. And he ended up paving the way for all of us.

You can check out his current work at his site.

In this interview, we start the discussion with him about his background, some of his work with Pat (and others), and the process of coming up-to-speed on gear he had never considered part of the 'practice'. We ran out of time long before we ran out of topics, but we'll continue the chat next week.


Podcast 258: Eric Singer (Part 2)

Published on Dec 23, 2018 20Objects

"In last week's episode, we just scratched the surface of Eric's role in creating the maker's world we now occupy. So I called him back and we immediately did a second interview to fill in some of the gaps: what were the early days like, how did he actually get the stuff built, why the move to Pittsburgh. This continues the fascinating journey of Eric Singer, and helps us to further appreciate the way he helped shape the electronic music future.

I think it is especially important to consider what was happening during the early 2000's, when computer technology was moving forward so rapidly, and the financial marketplace was in post-internet-boom chaos. Eric kept cranking out the work, teaching dozens of people how to manage their art through the process of hardware and software production, and eventually leading to something as overwhelming as the Orchestrion Project.

Again, if you haven't yet checked out Eric's work, you should:
