I made this simple Python program for Windows which I’ve released under the GNU public licence to fill a gap missing in Steam, the ability to move an individual game from one steam library to another. Close Steam down, point this script at your old and new steam libraries, choose the game you want to … [Read more…]
I posted a new deep liquid type trip hop track to YouTube yesterday. It could defiantly do with more development but I just wanted to get it out and move on. Enjoy.
I picked up a second hand Akai MPC 2500 a few ago and after tricking it out with the full 128mb of ram, a 40gb hard drive and jjosxl I’ve been having great fun breaking my musical shackles from the computer. Ok, so the MPC is a computer but the hands on tactile feel make the whole … [Read more…]
I’ve posted a music video for my latest track over on youtube. You can find a free download link in the description.
Here is a video I made while diagnosing and attempting to fix a problem with one of my gf’s old CDJ’s. It turned out to be a very simple mechanical fix, watch the video below to see more.
I’ve updated the Arduino code from my previous post here to add a very crude form of swing to the Volca sync beat. Unfortunately it can’t do real swing as the Volcas currently take 1/8th note sync signals and have 1/16th note sequencers. The code just changes every other beat signal to vary by a … [Read more…]
Hello everyone. I thought I’d share some experimentation I’ve been doing with the Arduino and a 12 bit dac (mcp4921). I’d been looking for things I could do with it and one obvious thing that came to mind was creating a sync signal for the Volca’s. I analysed the output of the sync signal from … [Read more…]
I’ve posted a video to YouTube tonight of some of my breadboard experiments with CMOS logic chips as DIY synth oscillators (CD40106 & CD4093) connected to the Korg SQ-1. You can check that out here.
Oh yeah baby. 🙂 I’ll be sure to post my thoughts and comments on this device once I’ve had a chance to play with it. There is a USB port on the back which might be able to provide power but interestingly the unit takes 2 AA batteries, 3v. MIDI operates at 5v and the … [Read more…]
I’ve been trying a few different methods of connecting modern hard drives to my E-MU sampler. My aim, to reduce the noise to an absolute minimum with the side benefit of possible requiring less power from the ageing PSU. Power One of the quirks of the e-mu e5000 ultra and other samplers in the range, … [Read more…]
