VEKT - Portable Drum Computer V.4


video upload by uszymyszy

"Hi! Here is v.4, I redesigned the enclosure to be more rugged, we have also a battery and speaker. Most of the errors are solved, the UI is quite cluttered yet and I make a lot of missclicks/wrong shortcuts but after some tweaks everything should go fluent.

The idea is to have a pocket version of Ableton workflow, simplified but easy enough to create sketches for further polishing in DAW. I plan to build several units for testers but is still a lot of work to do and I cannot guarantee anything at the moment. I will try to progress as much as possible to finish this in this year."

And from one year ago:

Vekt - Portable Drum Computer

video upload by uszymyszy

"I built a Pocket Operator alternative. It can now record and play internal synths. There are 4 engines:
- Bass (Roland TB-303 mod),
- Lead (8bit style),
- Braids (implementation of Mutable Instruments eurorack module),
- Wavetable (several waves mixed by knobs)

I hope the UI is self explanatory, it is focused on simplicity and uses Ableton-like mini session view to launch clips"

The first prototype was shown 3 years ago on reddit.

It looks like a Dirtywave M8 tracker, but is different in both build layout and function. From the creator:

"M8 is a stunnig device for complex projects, I plan to keep my Vekt operator more like pocket op where you can quickly create sketches/ideas and polish them later on DAW. And the main idea for me personally was to quickly create rhythmic sequences which I can use with my visualization app instead making them in DAW, this will speed up the process."

JAde Wii Takes the New Limited Edition Erica Synths Perkons HD-01 in Black for a Spin


JAde Wii x Erica Synths Perkons HD-01 Drum Machine, First Encounter 👾 video upload by JAde Wii - https://www.jadewii.com/



via Erica Synths

"Introducing a truly unique and exquisite limited edition Pērkons HD-01 with an all-new sleek black finish and side panels crafted from handpicked wood and meticulously engraved using the mesmerizing Lichtenburg burning method.

The timelessly black finish of Pērkons HD-01 matches our other instruments and visually complements the dark aesthetic that has become synonymous with Erica Synths modules and desktop instruments all over the world. In addition the limited edition side panels are not just functional pieces of decor; they are works of art that effortlessly blend natural beauty with artisanal craftsmanship. Handpicked apple tree and plum wood brings a touch of orchard elegance, infusing each panel with the warmth and character of nature's bounty. The ash and oak wood, renowned for their durability and distinct grain patterns, provide a sturdy foundation for the intricate engravings.

But what truly sets these side panels apart is the mesmerizing Lichtenburg burning method employed in their creation. This technique, named after the physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, involves applying high-voltage electricity to the wood's surface, resulting in striking patterns reminiscent of lightning strikes. The method has gained notoriety due to numerous incidents of death and severe injuries when people have attempted it at home, with at least 33 people having died between 2017 and 2022. Pērkons HD-01 engraved side panels have been hand made by Sandis Vāgners in the deep woods of Latvia. To prevent his certain death during the engraving process Erica Synths developed a special emergency power cut circuit."

The Metal Fetishist is a beat-making platform designed for rythm discovery and percussive sound design. The unapologetically digital sound engine includes a single oscillator, a white noise source, a resonant multi-mode filter and a digital distortion section featuring downsampling and overdrive.

Random sequencing with control
The Metal Fetishist features two randomness generators. At every trigger step of the sequence, the Random Step Mod section creates a new modulation value that can modify the Pitch, the amount of Noise or the filter Cut-Off value, while the modulation amount can be selected manually. At every sequence step, the Random Skips control decides if the current step will trigger or not, based on the skipping amount selected. The big STEPS knob won't do anything at its OFF position, leaving the synth in completely random mode! But as you turn it right it will lock the previously generated random step values into repeatable sequences of length 2, 4, 8, 10, 16 or 32. Have fun with it!"

trkr_Trm - Upcoming Portable Hardware Groovebox Tracker


video upload by hinick



trkr_Trm is a new 64bit real-time tracker/groovebox that runs on the Linux.

The following are some details in via the creator, hi_nick aka hihihihinick.

"The device is implicitly designed for hosting Renoise, but as shown can be used for many other ARM64 based programs. Even the well loved headless M8 tracker. I wanted to make something that was just as fun and musically useful as some of the other retail offerings but following the tenants of open source hardware and software so anyone can roll their own. The demo is of the v1 t prototype, and there is still much to be done, but at present, I'm up to prototype v3. The focus presently is completion of the design for the main board which will serve as a carrier for Raspberry Pi compute modules, or offerings from other companies that use the compute module form factor. This carrier board ideally could be used for other purposes than the trkr_Trm, that require audio i/o, and modular connections to peripheral devices.

The goal is to have everything, including build guides, hardware, and software repositories live upon completion of a crowd funding campaign. Pre-built units for those who just want to 'get to cookin' will be available if all goes to plan during and post funding."
