the microTone – microtonal polyphonic synthesizer + controller for iPad

February 8, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A little demo of the microTone with iRig MIDI and (free) osynth!
http://microtone.ozurkirchen.ch

i connected an iRig MIDI to my iPad with the microTone running. The MIDI signal goes via audio/MIDI interface into my computer where the data is parsed by osynth.

the microTone:
- control one octave fluently without steps. Just glide over the keyboard with up to 10 fingers!
- switch octaves or lowest/highest notes
- the microTone has an integrated polyphonic synthesizer with 8 different sound presets
- send pitch data over MIDI cable to your computer
- send pitch data over WiFi to your computer (receive MIDI or OSC data with e.g. max/MSP or OSCulator)
- receive microTone MIDI or OSC data with osynth: a free synthesizer, made for the microTone.

osynth:
- voice1: saw/sine with hpf
- voice2: white noise filtered with note frequency
- voice3: sine sub-osc
- voice4: sine osc one octave higher
- voice5: wavetable osc
- ADSR
- reverb
- stereo delay
- binaural FX
- pitch random modulator
- recallable presets
- connect the microTone with core MIDI over WiFi or cable
- connect the microTone with OSC over WiFi

Connecting Reaktor 5.8 with Konkreet Performer

December 12, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

NI’s 5.8 update to Reaktor makes connecting OSC much faster and easier.

Here we show how to quickly hook up Konkreet Performer to control the Newscool Reaktor ensemble, running as a VST plug-in in Ableton Live 8.

Konkreet Performer is available through the iTunes store

Windows 8 based OSC controller

December 10, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Win8ChucKBasicFrettingAndLegato Wi Fi, details below:

I got basic fretting (loose fretting… it won’t completely prevent quartertones, etc if you play them exactly), and legato rules. I am back to the ChucK engine while I get better acquainted with SuperCollider coding. This is just a Windows 8 based OSC controller. It works running into ChucK or SuperCollider

Chroma Sequenced Monosynth for Reaktor

December 6, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Introducing Chroma, a unique sequenced monosynth for Reaktor featuring sound and sequence morphing and multiple control methods – use your mouse, a MIDI controller, Konkreet Performer, TouchOSC or Lemur.

available now at http://www.reaktortips.com/2012/12/chroma-and-gris-gris-sequenced-monster.html

Chroma is a performance oriented monosequencer and VA carefully tuned for ergonomic ease of use and glitch free operation in standalone and plugin mode. Slur features in Chroma match up with legato and glide features in the Gris-Gris synth to create a slinky sinuous note articulation.

Sequences can be created and controlled via mouse, MIDI, Konkreet Performer, TouchOSC and Lemur. Since there is now full OSC support in the Reaktor plugin version, you can do everything with Chroma in your preferred DAW that you can do stand-alone. A dream come true!

TouchOSC and Lemur templates are included in the package but there’s something special about Konkreet Performer that sets things on fire when it’s paired with Chroma and Gris Gris, a certain magic in the way it morphs and distorts sound. It is my firmly held opinion that not nearly enough people use KP and if you want something really special and unusual on your iPad you should rush right over to  Konkreet Labs or head straight for the App Store and buy a license.

Chroma is 24.99 USD and can be purchased and downloaded immediately. Remember, Chroma is a Reaktor ensemble and requires a full installation of Reaktor 5.8.0, not just Reaktor player.

SketchSynth – A drawable OSC control panel (not to be confused with the SketchSynth 3D available on iOS)

“My final project for Golan Levin’s Interactive Art and Computational Design class at CMU, Spring 2012.
Built with openFrameworks, ofxCv, OSC, and Pure Data.”

Rheyne – Lemur Jam

December 21, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Improv jam using Lemur on an iPad 2, with analog keyboards and USB controllers connected to Ableton Live. Lemur is wirelessly controlling effects on NI’s Massive (synth played on the M-Audio Oxygen 25) and NI’s Kontakt (drums played on the Akai MPD26). The bass is on a Moog Prodigy, and the lead is a DSI MoPho. All loops are recorded live, nothing is pre-recorded.

About Lemur:

Lemur – the legendary multitouch MIDI/OSC controller returns. All these major artists can’t be wrong: Daft Punk. Björk. Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5. M.I.A., Justice, Hot Chip, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Orbital, Richie Hawtin, The Glitch Mob, Matthew Herbert, Joris Voorn, Stephan Bodzin, Modeselektor, Alva Noto, Richard Devine, Gui Boratto, … you?

Rock solid standard
Major stadium-touring acts use Lemur on stage. The original hardware version was introduced to the public in 2004 and Lemur software now benefits from nearly 10 years of development. These are just two of the reasons Lemur is the name cited when talking about multitouch control.

Control anything
Lemur is a professional iOS controller app that doesn’t cut any corners. It lets you control anything, any way you want. Total flexibility means it can go as deep as you need it to. Lemur can control DJ software, live electronic music performance software, studio production software (DAWs), VJ software, visual synthesis software, stage lighting and more. In fact, any software or hardware that can be controlled by MIDI/OSC can be controlled by Lemur.

A controller unequalled
Lemur has often been imitated but never equalled. The physics engine, which can make faders and balls bounce, is entirely unique: allowing anything from a slight organic feel to absolutely chaotic modulations. Lemur goes deep: it comes with more than twice as many objects as comparable apps. Options for adjusting the look and feel of objects are vast, and connection to your gear is simple.

User Library
Access templates from top artists and the Lemur community. Some of these are actual templates used on stage, others are pure studio or creative tools. Share your own or simply browse the library and download whatever suits your needs.

SPECIFICATIONS

- Objects
Fader; Multislider, Range; Multiball; Knob; RingArea; Switches; Pads; Custom Button; Container; Breakpoint; Leds; LemurMenu; Monitor; SignalScope; SurfaceLCD; Text

- Physics
Hated physics at school? Now you’ll love it! The behaviour of many Lemur objects can be affected by powerful and easy to use physical models which can make your controller bounce, rebound and oscillate. Make your controller come alive.

- Scripting
There’s absolutely no need to dive into scripting if you don’t want to. But if you’re the type who likes to get their hands dirty then there’s a powerful scripting engine inside Lemur. Harnessing this power will allow you to build extremely dynamic templates.

- Editor
The Lemur editor, is a cross-platform (OS X/Windows) interface builder. It allows you to create new Lemur templates or edit existing ones. The drag & drop interface makes it easy to use. It allows you to create anything from the simplest set of faders to the most complex groovebox with no hassle.

- Connectivity
Simply connect your iPad/iPhone to your laptop over Wi-Fi and make the connection! Lemur also supports CoreMIDI allowing you to use hardware interfaces such as Alesis’ iO Dock or the iConnectMIDI or class-compliant USB MIDI interfaces (with a camera connection kit). You can even control up to 8 computers from one iPad with Lemur!

Presented by Gaz Williams and Nick Batt

This new Lemur app allows you to control DJ software, studio production software (DAWs), live electronic music software, stage lighting, and more – this is no everyday keyboard situation. Any software OR hardware that can otherwise be controlled by OSC/MINI is able to be controlled by this Lemur app. For those of you new to the platform, you’ll be able to access a user library of pre-made templates from top artists and unknowns from the Lemur community – artists from around the world are now sharing their own templates, strengthening the platform by the minute!

You’ve only to connect your iPad OR iPhone to your laptop over Wi-fi to work with a cross-platform (Mac OS X or Windows) interface builder to bring your experience to a whole new level, dragging and dropping with ease as you do so. You’re able to control up to 8 computers from one iPad if you wish, Lemur also supporting CoreMIDI allowing you to use such hardware interfaces as the iConnectMIDI or USB MINI interfaces to your heart’s content. Physics in objects are able to be controlled with physics models, allowing you to bounce, oscillate, and rebound across your tracks — objects including, but not limited to: Fader, Multislider, Range, Multiball, Knob, RingArea, Switches, Pads, Custom Button, and text.
