Strymon Timeline Editor for TB MIDI Stuff

Boele Gerkes shared this demo of his TB MIDI Stuff editor for the Strymon Timeline, which is driving a Moog Voyager. Even if you don't have a Strymon Timeline, nor a Moog Voyager, nor even TB MIDI Stuff, you'll enjoy this sonic shower of awesome synthesis!

LH Rubbing - Silly Name, Free Synth

LH Rubbing doesn't have Audiobus, but this polyphonic synth has been getting some buzz on Twitter and is free right now!

LH Rubbing iTunes Description:

LH Rubbing is a polyphony software synthesizer app for iPad running on iOS 6.0 or latter.

There are three wave oscillators, one noise oscillator, two LFOs and one three type embedded filter (low-pass, hi-pass and bandpass). Each wave oscillator can generate three kinds of waveform which are triangle, square and saw wave.

LFO can be attached to different modul for different modulation or control such as OSC Pitch, PW, Filter Cutoff Frequency, Filter Resonance and OSC Output Mixing. The frequency and amplitude of the 1st LFO can be modified by the 2nd LFO.

Pitch, Filter Cutoff Frequency and Resonance can be controlled by the ADSR envelope generator.

The Keyboard Rubbing brings up vibrato while control the vibrato rate and depth.

App Music Seminar in Berlin

Matthias Krebs from DigiEnsemble Berlin will be doing a seminar on App Music at the Berlin Summer University, in English!

date: July 29th-August 2nd 2013
place: UdK Berlin, Bundesallee 1-12
fee: 400 € (from June 10th 2013: 420 €)
No. of participants: 12 to 15
language: English
application deadline: July 1st 2013

The App Music seminar will be a composition and sound workshop in the form of an experimental laboratory; a creative space to explore music and make new discoveries. Participants will investigate perspectives and potential of “app music” through a collective ‘learning by doing’ approach. Enthusiasts, experts and interested parties from all backgrounds are therefore invited to participate in the collaborative investigation of and experimentation with new music, sound and performance. A range of different sounds and musical compositions will be developed in groups and discussed within the context of the workshop. Results of the interactive creative activities will be presented in a public performance at the c-base.

The workshop will begin with an overview of the different music apps, platforms, devices and interfaces. Project groups will organically develop performances, productions and/or composition pieces over the course of the following days. Additionally, a joint rehearsal with the musicians of the DigiEnsemble Berlin is planed. The (partial) results will be presented in the workshop by the end of the last day. The last two days will be used to prepare the final performance.

Possible open questions to be explored in the course of the workshop:

  • Which musical forms, fields of application and performing practices can be shaped by music apps?
  • What possibilities are offered by mobile sensor controlled devices (such as smartphones and tablets) for music production and for future use as musical instruments?
  • Can you express emotion and meaning with mobile music apps?

Audio Break-in - Break-in Your Headphones and Monitors

This is actually a useful free app, but the reason I'm including it here is because of how amusing the iTunes blurb is.

Audio Break-in iTunes Description:

This app is a tool which supports a break-in of output devices such as a speaker and a headphone using pink noise. The pink noise is said to be good for the break-in, however, there is no basis about it. For details, please refer to various papers.

Exemption from Liability

ASTI will not be held liable for anything that transpires as a result of using the app. No liability whatever will be accepted for any damage, injury or loss that may be suffered as a result of using the app.

Settings

  • Break-in Time - From 1 minute to 1000 hours, 59 minutes.
  • Word Sizes - 16, 24 or 32 bit.
  • Sample Rates - 44.1k, 48k, 96k or 192kHz
  • Volume - It changes volume.

I love that right there in the description he's like, "Fuck it, I don't even know if this works. Go read science, or something." He doesn't even offer any links for the, "various papers." Here is some good sciencey sounding stuff if you're inclined.

The need to "Break-in" or "Burn-in" speakers is a bit of myth, but it is one that is observed by many and even recommended by some manufacturers. I personally observe a break-in period by just running music through the new gear. In the case of headphones you can just do that overnight. This app might speed up the process though by sending out all the frequencies of pink noise.
