Another Pi related Kickstarter purchase and one that I’m looking forward to trying out soon. I’ll be getting to grips with it soon and seeing what I can use it for. I’m hoping that it’ll be like a little PDA but maybe a bit more up to date.
I thought I’d share this too, just a quick picture of my current modular array. More on this as it evolves.
This is the Blokas Pi Sound board attached to my Pi 3 with 7″ touch screen. I’m looking forward to getting some time with this soon. I’m keen to see how it works with the Android app too.
My plan is also to see how I can use Pd on the Pi as well, possibly other stuff too, like Supercollider. Who knows. This card opens up a lot of possibilities.
This is something that I’ve been putting off for a long time now. Mainly as just about everyone I’ve spoken to about modular synths just tells me it sucks every last penny from you and you’re never really finished in any meaningful way. Which is a shame. So you can understand why I might decide not to go down this route. However, after a series of events and triggers I have finally given in with what can only be called a modest initial set up, and one that is in keeping with my largely mobile aspirations.
The set up is inside a lunchbox. So it’s pretty small, and almost all of the modules are from Music Thing Modular, so it is a fairly esoteric modular set up.
I hope to have some kind of output to show for it in the not too distant future, but for now I thought I’d at least post some pictures.
It’s a fairly rare MIDI kit for a Casio VL-1. I’m not building it myself, it’s just too fidly, but I have some plans to be able to use a VL-1 over MIDI. We’ll see where that goes.
Who doesn’t like cool little instruments that fit into an altoids tin?
More on this when I’ve had a chance to play with it.
Currently I don’t even have a ZX Spectrum, but I did, a long while ago, and one day I’ll have one again. When I do I’ll be running this among a number of music programs that I used to use a long time ago. That’ll be fun.
