I haven’t made this as yet

It’s a kit for making a nice little model. I think I might have first seen it in Electronic Sound magazine and thought it would be a nice thing to have. Anyway, I\m sure I’ll get around to making it soon enough. When I do I’ll post a few pictures.

I want this and I really don’t

Part of me wants this just because it’s kind of cool that Haynes are making a little synth kit, although I’ve no idea why they would do that at all. It seems so strange, but there you go. I also know that if I got one and made it I wouldn’t really do much if at all with it and it would just gather dust for a long time.

So I’ve more or less decided not to get this. I think that’s probably best.

I actually got these two working a long time ago, and they do work quite well, if being a bit limited, but they’re fun and that’s fine.

However, I was thinking the other day that I should give it a go with some of the other little modular things I have. The colossus sequencer has a CV out so should work with some of my other bits and pieces.

There’s an experiment or two in there I think.

Starting to build an automated twitter synth with littleBits

For a long time I’ve been thinking about the idea of being able to create a synth in hardware which reacted to the virtual world, more specifically, to being tweeted at. To that that end I got myself a littleBits CloudBit, which works quite well, albeit it isn’t able to provide as much data as I’d like it to. However, that’s something that I need to overcome with a little bit of ingenuity rather than just complain about it.

So I’m starting to build the synth and get it to respond to external stimulus. The goal being to create a little system that reacts to a twitter message, creates a sequence based on that message, and somehow records that and uploads it somewhere. We’ll see. That’s the plan. Who knows how it’ll work out.

The VL-Tonifier is here …

You might remember that I have posted about this a few times, but I think that the odd reminder doesn’t really do any harm right? I’ve made a bot that tweets stuff about the VL-1 including ADSR settings every hour. It’s a little bit of fun and nothing more, but you might want to follow it if you’d like to think of the old days of the VL-1, or if you have a VL-1 and want some sound suggestions for it. It’ll even go as far as telling you where you can get an old VL-1 if you just have to have one.

You can find it here https://twitter.com/VLTonifier.
