More h2n goodies

I also got the accessory kit for the h2n. It really is a bag of goodies, with a hard case, remote, tripod, handle, AC adapter and more. I think it is actually a little bit of a necessity really. Especially the hard case.

The OP-1 Antenna

I’ve always wanted to try out the FM radio on the OP-1 for sampling, but, until now, I’ve not had the actual antenna to do this. Not so anymore!

This is an awesome Christmas present, a tiny box with delicate tissue paper inside.

And nicely wrapped up inside was the FM antenna. Small, neat, functional. Just what you’d expect from Teenage Engineering.

But the tissue paper itself was a revelation! It is beautifully printed with all the OP-1 accessories. Really nicely done.

And here’s the antenna sitting on the tissue wrap.

And finally in the OP-1 itself.

I’ve only had a brief try with this in the OP-1. Recording some random FM radio and using it as drum samples. It’s pretty good though, so expect a few strange OP-1 drum kits in due course.

These guys are pretty amazing actually. I’ve been following their NOiZE app for a long time now and it’s nearly ready for prime time. I’m glad to have been a part of the journey that they’ve been on and I’m pleased that they were able to be SoundLab’s Play Space event at NESTA last month.

Ed from LoopTree (Coding Cod) was an absolute star at the Play Space and helped lots of people get to grips with looping where they’d never done it before. I liked this photo a lot as it also has Mark from Heart n Soul in it.

DS-10 then and now

I do love the old DS-10. I’ve had the DS version, and now, the iOS version. It’s all pretty cool. Amazing that we’ve come so far and yet mobile music goes on and changes and matures.

The latest version of the DS-10, the iDS-10 is pretty awesome. I’m just getting to grips with it, but so far I’m really enjoying it a lot.

The SoundLab Play Space, that’s it for now

I think I’ve probably posted all of the individual posts I’m going to now about the Play Space. It was an amazing day and I think it well really well overall. Hopefully we’ll do something like this again in the not too distant future.
