Just a really short tutorial to show the portamento feature of Rhythm Core Alpha 2, the amazing music creation system for the Nintendo DSi and 3DS portable game consoles.
Portamento is when the pitch glides between notes. To use portamento, make sure it is turned on for the current sound from the Load and Modify Sound menu (go there by clicking on the sound name on the block screen). Then draw your two notes. Finally, take the tail of the earlier note and drag it over one beat so it overlaps (in time) the 2nd note. The pitch will glide between note 1 and note 2 when they are played.

This is ‘R3D electronics’ cover of Da Funk by Daft Punk. It was made using LSDJ for Game Boy.
This system allows for Nintendo gameplay audio to be played through an acoustic player piano and robotically controlled percussive instruments. The piano and percussion play live during actual gameplay, mirroring the sounds that would normally be created electronically. All audio, including music and sound effects, is translated in realtime so that it is produced by the instrument most closely resembling the characteristics of the original electronic sound.
For those interested in the technical details, both the piano and the percussion use solenoids to drive their player mechanisms. The piano uses Yamaha’s Disklavier system to strike keys, and the percussion uses a custom solution to strike the drum sticks. Both the piano and percussion are each controlled by Raspberry Pis which have custom software to control each instrument. The software is responsible for translating the gameplay audio to instructions which ultimately define which solenoid should be actuated. In full disclosure, there is normally a half-second audio delay that was removed in editing, but it’s still very playable live. The piano is controlled through the Disklavier’s MIDI interface, while the percussion’s solenoids are directly controlled through the Pi’s GPIO interface.
