Waiting for the Patchblocks MIDI block

Just been taking a look at the Patchblocks MIDI block on their new site. It’s cheaper than I expected, although apparently when the final version becomes available it’ll be a bit more than the current £15. Even at a bit more than that I might pick one up. I think it’ll make my existing Patchblocks a lot more useful to me.

Hopefully it won’t be too long to wait though.

Messing around with littleBits MIDI bit

I’ve been playing around with my new littleBits MIDI bit. It’s pretty easy to get to grips with. It handles USB MIDI and 5 pin MIDI too, which is very handy. It all worked very well actually. I tested it out using Genome MIDI Sequencer on my iPad. No problems at all.

I got it to hopefully make my littleBits collection a bit more useful. I think that it will. The down side is that it appears that one of the oscillators in my kit appears to have stopped working. Which is disappointing. I doubt that there’s anyway to fix it sadly. I guess I’ll just have to get a new one.
