Short demo of the Synthrotek

December 21, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Synthrotek’s CCM allows you take the beat out of your DS-10 or computer or ipod (really anything that pans) and convert a beat into clock voltage. This allows the user to then connect the clock input into an analog sequencer, or really anything that takes clock voltage. Super rad, now you can perform with your DS-10 and your analog synths/gear.

August 19, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Rhythm Core Alpha is a music creation system designed for creating and performing live music in-front of an audience. It contains DRUM GRID for creating drum parts, a NOTE GRID for creating instrument parts, a unique 2D SOLO MODE where the user can play music live with the stylus, and a PATTERN SCREEN for arranging pattern and key/scale changes.

“The great thing about Rhythm Core Alpha is that the music never has to stop. You can be editing one block, while playing another.” says program creator T. B. Trzepacz. “Rhythm Core Alpha detects the key of the music automatically, so you can change the key of the music you sequenced with the +Control Pad or face buttons, like fingering a guitar, while soloing with the stylus using your other hand. Or you can sequence all of the chord changes in the pattern mode and concentrate more on your playing.”

• Up to 100 drum / note blocks (loops) can be stored.

Solo Mode:
• 2D solo grid gives over 6 octaves of notes on screen.
• Each note can reach 6 other notes without lifting the stylus for more fluid play.

Free synth for Nintendo DS

November 2, 2009 · Posted in Electronic Music · 1 Comment 

Hotelsinus Sound Design has released version 0.23 of TonesynthDS, a free software synth for the Nintendo DS. TonesynthDS is an easy to use matrix tone synth with a simple instrument generator.

tonesynth

TonesynthDS features

  • 16×16 pattern editor (16 accord, 16 tone (the scale is selectable), first line is always the C3).
  • 16 different pattern stock.
  • Different volume setting possibility for each accord (in the second editor mode).
  • Adjustable tempo.
  • Possibility to play a pattern looped with the default sound samples or with generated sound samples.
  • With the button X you can clear a pattern (and set the volumes of that pattern to maximum).
  • Sound sample generator. You can listen a test sound with ADSHR, play a continuous test sound without adshr (but you can set the parameters on the fly) or generate the full stock, that will be used by the pattern player. The system is fully usable while you play or generate samples. Although the playing of the pattern will be paused during the generation.
  • For the generation there are two oscilloscopes. Both can generate sinus, saw, rectangle and organ. The frequency of the second oscilloscope can be set relative to the frequency of the first oscilloscope with a slider under that except for the ‘am’ mixing type where you can set the absolute frequency between 0 and 20 hertz.
  • 3 mixing types: Amplitude modulation, ring modulation (the difference is in the base frequency of the second oscilloscope) and cross modulation. For the last one you can set the cross fade factor with the slider under the first oscilloscope.
  • Low pass filter with resonance.
  • ADSHR for the generated samples. The length of the samples are limited to 2 seconds.

TonesynthDS v0.23 is available as freeware for Nintendo DS.
