Playdate and Teenage Engineering TX-6

video upload by Luca Longobardi

"It's strange, isn't it?' the woman said in a pensive voice. 'Everything is blowing up around us, but there are still those who care about a broken lock, and others who are dutiful enough to try to fix it... But maybe that's the way it should be. Maybe working on the little things as dutifully and honestly as we can is how we stay sane when the world is falling apart.
(Haruki Murakami, Men without Women)

What I particularly love about these little instruments that I use to make music and that I show here is the feeling of being able to contain my world in the palm of my hand. And I consider this a superpower.

About this setup:
Playdate App Granular plays 5 different granular versions of a sample recorded with my piano through its on board mic, TX-6 plays sine waves (I muted/unmuted them live) and add its reverb magic."

Playdate micro console & Hologram Microcosm 10/10 ambient highwater skinny jeans marimba yuccie mix

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Here we go.

Plugging the unobtainable directly into a cheat code.

Playdate running 'Modular Play' app. Using the 'ball' sequencer to drive a couple marimba samples and a standup bass. And an 808 of course.

Marimbas are basically ANOTHER cheat code in ambient music.

Microcosm just just adds the magic."

"music studio for panic playdate.
now, in development.

we are looking for beta testers.
please contact at @hugelton_ on X"

We have a new maker on the site. hügelton Instruments wrote in with some additional details:

"We are developing a sequencer app 'Yacht' for Panic Playdate. (Like 'nanoloop')

Now, 'Yacht' only has a sequencer screen,
It can play 4 synth tracks.
In the future, we would like to add song edit, synth edit and drum tracks.

We are looking for support from a small number of 'mobile music creators' in beta testers."

If you are interested contact hügelton Instruments at @hugelton_ on X.

Nanoloop FM + Playdate Glitch Visuals

video upload by Perplex On

"Receiving my #Playdate recently reminded me of another fun device that has been greatly neglected by me unfortunately, the #NanoloopFM. So i thought i could take the chance to bring all these clicky buttons together 😉 All sounds here are coming from the Nanoloop (spiced up with #Artifacts app @numericalaudio4903 ). It’s plugged into the Playdate via TRRS which runs an early version of an upcoming playdate app @humbletune that creates awesome interactive and audioreactive lofi visuals! I’m switching here through different scenes and add live glitch fx on the fly. So much fun! Here also projected from above using playdate’s mirror companion app."

This and more cool Playdate apps by the dev:"

PLAYDATE Granular Explorations On A Rainy Day

video upload by Perplex On

"I've recently finally received my playdate after more than 2 years of waiting. Besides the nice retro games, there are also a few audiovisual apps already out there, which makes the device way more exciting. First stop here is an app called Granular by Orllewin, inspired by an old Reaktor instrument called Travelizer. It is an experimental granular sampler which splits a sample (recorded via its internal mic, via external mic with trrs splitter on the headphone jack or in this case, an imported custom sample) into 5 tracks with various granular controls and separate fx.

This and more cool apps by the dev:"

"Granular is an experimental 'grain sampler' for Playdate that plays subsamples from a recorded parent sample, it's inspired by the old Reaktor 'Travelizer' instrument. Granular includes various modifiable parameters and effects to change the sound which produces beautiful glitchy ambience that can be used on its own or as a background for other instruments.

You really need headphones or to connect to a speaker - this will not sound good through the Playdate's tiny built-in speaker.

You don't have rigid control over the playback, most options not related to effects/filters increase or decrease the probability of something happening, either a change in playback rate, or how regular the samples are triggered, it's all fairly random.

Generally 'A' selects and navigates, 'B' closes and pops the stack back to the previous location, everything should be intuitive with a little exploration. Granular operates on probabilities; when you select 'jump' or 'rev.' (reverse) or other parameters you're telling the underlying engine to allow the possibility of that happening each cycle."
