Techno with DIY/modified instruments

May 1, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A 1st generation Nanoloop (cartridge for Gameboy classic) and a modified Korg Monotron are synced by a Roland TR-626. Nanoloop is triggered by the rimshot pattern of the 626. The sawtooth LFO (low frequency oscillator) of the Monotron is triggered by syncuino (http://chemiker1981.blogspot.com/) and the cutoff frequency of the Monotron analog filter is controlled by a sequence generated by Syncuino.

PixiVisor: Using the Korg Monotron As Video Filter

February 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Using the Korg Monotron (Pocket Synth) As Analog Video Filter.
PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. It is based on the video signal transmission over audio (you can listen to the sound of your image).

Music: http://soundcloud.com/nightradio/anal…

PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. Simple and fun, cross-platform application with unlimited potential for creativity!
It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver.

* Transmitter converts the video (static 64×64 image or 10FPS animation) to sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). This lets you listen to the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices.
* Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file.

Key features:
* file formats supported by Transmitter: JPEG, PNG, GIF (static and animated);
* real-time video export to animated GIF;
* 64 predefined color palettes;
* iTunes File Sharing;
* Wi-Fi Export/Import (in the File menu of the Transmitter);
* it also available for Android, Windows, Linux and OSX;
* more functions in the next PixiVisor updates…

Examples of use:
* wireless Lo-Fi video transmission over audio;
* video signal transmission through audio cable; you can then modify that signal by some mixers or audio FX processors;
* VJing;
* sound visualization;
* save any sound to animated GIF;
* hide some images and animation in your music;
* searching for hidden messages in the ambient noise; EVP;
* something else; reveal it first!

Korg Monotron – LFO Sync Mod Compilation

January 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is a compilation of the possibilities of a LFO-sync modded Korg Monotron analog synthesizer.
In this mod (see also http://stevewoodward.posterous.com/lfo-reset-point-on-korg-monotron), the low-frequency oscillator (LFO) of the Monotron (sync slave) can be retriggered by pulse signals in this case from a Roland TR-626 rhyrtm computer (sync master). The trigger signals sent by the TR-626 can be programmed by its rimshot pattern. Shuffled notes of the sync master are directly introduced into the Monotron LFO, to give also a shuffle effect.

Advantages of this mod is the low-budget (~2$, only a few cables and a 3.5 mm plug are needed) and the possibility to sync other music devices to the TR-626 via MIDI at the same time. Like shown here a Nanoloop (http://www.nanoloop.de/gameboy) cadtridge for Gameboy Classic, can also be synced with the same pulses.

This LFO-sync Mod enhances the possibilities of the Korg Monotron significantly.
It allows to use the synchronized Monotron analog filter LFO for external audio, as well as for the internal voltage controlled oscillator (VCO).

If the Monotron LFO frequency is tuned higher the retrigger frequency of the sync master, there is also the possiblilty of cross-modulation effects, like for the unsynced version.
