A test of the prototype PCB for the Two Thousand Six Hundred (TTSH) project.
Multitracked with all sounds, including drums, from the TTSH.

How it works:
quantum maps arbitrary note values to objects in juggling patterns. higher notes correspond to higher throws by default, but any value can be assigned. additionally, the program allows for a distinction between the left and right hands. note triggers are set to the peak of each object, rather than the traditional catching or throwing position. this produces unexpected rhythmic variations, and allows for chords to exist.

This semi-improvised piece is recorded live, in one take, and features the MU format synth and the EMW200/300 cross-patched. The new DotCom S/H module is playing the cello like sound from the DDVCO. The EMW is providing filter filter modulation and some counter melodies from the sequencer and S/H section. I must also point out the new STG Soundlabs mixer and say that Eric’s claims about the sound are absolutely true. Everything I feed through it sounds better coming out than going in. Off camera there are some effects units that are being controlled by hand (and foot) to process the sine wave from the small Eico signal generator.

Steady State Fate GND CTRL ( Ground Control)
GND CTRL features seven gain presets for bridging a wide range of signal and control voltages for your audio and video systems. GND CTRL also provides these commonly used utility functions:
Attenuator, Inverter, Multiple, full scale DC Bias and Bipolar Clipping Indicator.
Last but not least, GND CTRL is a dual mode OLED Voltage Meter! The Voltmeter can display AC voltages as a needle/bar display or DC and AC voltages numerically. The voltmeter is normaled to the CV processor so you can measure your changes with instant feedback.
Additionally, a dedicated voltmeter input is available for non-destructive voltage metering on the fly.
Look for GND CTRL at your favorite shops in April 2013!
This piece was shot under a railroad bridge that I ride under during my commute. While trains are going over the bridge a nice rumbling, screechy ambience envelopes the space. On this occasion, a few weeks ago, melting icicles were dripping onto the sidewalk adding a chaotic rhythm to the soundscape. Rather than producing a drone to mimic the ambience I used noise, LFO pitch sweeps, and sample-and-hold on the Monotribe to contrast the reverberated railroad rumbling, and screeching.
NOTE: This is a binaural recording mixed with a monophonic, analog, synthesizer performance. Please use headphones to experience the binaural effect. For more info please visit audiocookbook.org/duet-for-synthesizer-and-spin-cycle/
Al Petteway, Richard Smith and Vincent Crow experience the Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer for the first time. Experience it for yourself at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/3…
The Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer is based on a key invention that enables accurate control of acoustic vibrations. I’m the inventor. My technology was behind the well-known Moog Guitar and the Moog lap steel — instruments based on the same key principle. Since then I’ve been advancing this invention towards its full potential. Now I’m going ahead with the Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer. It’s my full ‘inventor’s version’ product and will be produced by my design company Vo Inventions LLC.
The Vo-96 was never intended to be a retail type of product. It is a concept product that takes the technology to the max and demonstrates what’s really possible with acoustic synthesis. It’s the “inventor’s cut” and it leaves nothing out — which makes it impractical to sell through the standard retail channels with their customary price mark-ups. Making the Vo-96 available through Kickstarter allows us to maximize the value to you and provide the most powerful product for the price; and there is simply nothing else available at any price that does what the Vo-96 does.
The laser drum microphone measures the physical vibration of the drum head directly. We use this to run the sidechain of a standard gate to achieve excellent bleed suppression and reduced false triggering. This allows the microphones to stay off until the drum is physically hit, giving a tighter, more controlled drum sound.
…but most importantly, we did it with lasers.

Korinsky Studio consists of Abel, Carlo and Max Korinsky. They mainly focus on their shared passion: exploring the possibilities of using sound in vertical surfaces. 3845 m/s is their newest installation using their own software, in a former coal power plant in Berlin.
