Supercollider MIDI Synth for Flesh MIDI Mod

Posted by No comments

Screenshot

This post describes a MIDI controlled software synthesizer intended for use with a scratch mixer having a Flesh MIDI Mod. The synth is built entirely in the programming language Supercollider 3. Sounds, which are generated using Supercollider’s unit generators, can be controlled externally via MIDI. The software synthesizer allows for simultaneous playback of sound loops and the software synthesizer. Example sound files are given to illustrate the functions of the synth.

Orban 111b Spring Reverb Model

Posted by No comments

orban_face

The goal of this project is to learn a bit about modeling spring reverbs. The goal of this project is not to model an entire spring reverb unit through circuit analysis, but to take a look at it’s response by testing it with audio signals. The unit under test is the Orban 111b spring reverb. Details on how the springs affect audio, and how the springs look in the Orban 111b will be discussed. The tests will be presented and results will be posted.

Custom Fader Cap for Rane 56

Posted by No comments

When I got my first Rane 56 mixer, the fader had a very pointed triangular cap. I definitely preferred the square fader caps used by Vestax. So, with the help of a master craftsman (Jesse), I designed and built a few custom Rane 56 fader caps. These caps have square, smooth edges with a lightly sanded surface (for a soft touch type feel).

PS3 Controller Mod (adding Xbox analog sticks)

Posted by No comments

Yesterday, I finished modding a couple PS3 controllers by replacing the PS3 analog stick caps with Xbox stick caps. I used third party red caps, cause they look bad-ass. I wouldn’t usually post such a simple mod, but it turned out to be a bit messy. I thought it would be useful to add my two cents to the mod.

Flesh Modulation (FM) Effect

Posted by No comments

The Flesh modulation Effect is a FM transmitter audio effect. It has a stereo analog input (Line level), and transmits FM radio at it’s output.

The user has real time control of volume, input gain, modulation, dither, transmit level, and pilot level. The antenna can be removed and replaced with different antenna lengths (which affects transmit level).

I think I’m getting arthritis in my hands:

Audio MP3

The drums on here are sampled from record with the sp1200, run through the Flesh Modulation effect, recorded onto PC, and then loaded into the MPC. The drums are not quantized (except the ride). All the synth sounds are the Meeblip run the the OTO Biscuit.

Once again, all recorded onto the 2880.

Another loop using the 2880:

Audio MP3

This one is using the MPC for drums (sampled into the SP1200 and filtered with the FM filter first), the Meeblip for the lead and counter lead (ran through the OTO Bisquit), and the little phatty for the drone bass/midrange sound. Everything is played live into the 2880 looper (except the drums). The 2880 was the MIDI master, and the MPC was the MIDI slave.
