How hard can it be? It's as easy as it would be on any synth with fast envelopes and a self-oscillating filter. Turn down both the level of both oscillators, raise the filter resonance to 100%, lower the cutoff (and octave if you wish) to suit your taste, and play with the filter envelope amount (p...

A place for jmax (java max/msp) users

Need to find a formu, where jmax users can share their ensembles, talk about techniques, and stuff. I know that there is a mailing llist, but I don't like mailing lists to much.

You can't have analog unit that works on bit's. Bit's are characteristic for digital electronics.

Are you all talking about the hum in the synths output, or about the transformer itself producing sound. Transformer is nothing mare than two coils on one core. It can't make sound itself, unless there is a lose metal part (like screw) that is vibrating due the changing electromagnetic field. Big tr...

I don't want to go to deep into the "what is groovebox, and what isn't" debate. The purpose of this post, was to gather a maximum list of small, live performance focused hardware, that alone, or with little support can be used to write/perform whole tracks. ofcourse the mu-7 should be mp-7 (moo phat...

It depends what you call a groovebox as the 777 and Rev are more stand alone monosynth/sequencer combos' tho personally I would call them grooveboxes too in which case you could sorts thrown in the Polymorph. I think the MC303 was the first officially names 'groovebox' if I'm not mistaken even tho ...

well I guess you can add the Radikal Technologies Spectralis to that list..... and handheld type gear like LSDJ, nanoloop, qy70 ect.... But if none on that list suit you.... what will? Also the Korg KP3 technology looks like it's heading into groovebox territory... I will add spectralis, kaoss pads...

list all grooveboxes that you know

By groovebox I mean a price of hardware that contains a sequencer, a drum part (pcm/sampler/synth), a synth(also pcm/sampler/synth) part, and is capable of playing live. I know plenty of them, and was curious if there are any "special" that I am missing, and that could suit me. Here are those that I...

NI: Kore question

Is it possible to use kore controller as a midi controller/audio interface without the vst? Of course the idea of the ultimate vsti interface is very interesting, but I am also a linux user, and was curious if I could make any advantage of the hardware in vst-less environment. What are the differenc...

Don't think so, it is still about the hardware itself, not about techniques. Of course it is highly related to techniques.

Interesting effect boxes

Post any effect units that you consider "not average". Like some grain effects, bit shifting, third signal controls how two earlier are mixed, pitchshifter with pitch regulated by signals amplitude, sample-hold-play-backward, etc...

if you can learn to program for gameboy advance / nintendo DS (in C, there are quite a few libraries available already to make it easy), there is a serial-port add on device called dserial2, that can be turned into midi I/O plug by soldering the midi connectors to the right pins. How you load the p...

If you are going to build your own hardware seq, I would certainly recommend using a PIC or Basic Stamp microcontroller. Trying to implement a seq using discreet digital logic would be quite a nightmare unless you were making an extremely simple sequencer. Many PIC's and stamps have UARTS on them f...
