Robot Jam Session

YouTuber Erin RobotGrrl visited the workshop of Jesse Stewart where he makes musical MIDI robots. Here he uses AUMI, an app designed for people with poor motor function, as a musical controller for robots.That is, the robot is controlling the app as a musical interface! This is both insane and inventive!

Video Description:

Robots making music with DIY midi instruments controlled by computer vision software running on an iPad. We explored and played around with the different sounds that can be made.

A collaboration with Robot Missions, Jesse Stewart, and MadeMill!

This was plenty of fun, and this video gives a glimpse into it. Just playing around, trying new things, and coming away with new ideas to try. :)

Filmed inside of the solar powered Innovation Pod - super cool.

Thank you Jesse, Tom, Will, and MadeMill crew for your help in making this happen!


Robot Missions is crowdfunding - be part of making it happen:

Stay tuned to our updates:

pantsofdeath: Groove Rider GR-16 Noodling

Reader pantsofdeath attempted to do a video explaining all of Groove Ride in 10 minutes. He missed the mark by just a bit, but this is still a nicely condensed intro to the app. There is also a new Kronecker Overview.

Video Description:

Ha, well, turns out grooverider in under 10 minutes is harder to do than I though... oh well..

Trip'N - Forgotten Galerie

YouTuber Trip'N recreated a couple of songs from the Rabi-Ribi soundtrack inside of Gadget.

Video Description:

Love Rabi-Ribi and, Love the sound track.

Forgotten Cave II and Speicher Galerie are two tracks I really enjoy from this awesome game, which makes sense that I would like both if I liked one, they're practically the same song.
They're in different musical keys though and have their own nuances and style of course, but notation wise are related.

So this mix is baaasically Forgotten Cave II, played in the same key as Speicher Galerie, and some of the general soft pleasantness of a piano. Nothing special, just a variation.
Oh, and It helped me learn how to use korg gadget a bit, as this is the first song I made in gadget =3

Intro pic was something I drew in ibis paint on my ipad.
The peeking from behind the ipad is supposed to be reminiscent of Erina peeking out from the box at the start of the game.

Gameplay footage are clips I recorded from me struggling my way through Forgotten Cave II on Hell+alternative. So fun ~♪

Harmonizr by Matthew Robbins

Matthew Robbins released Harmonizr, a new AUv3 harmonizer effect with a lot of nice voicing options. In addition to AUv3, Harmonizr arrives with MIDI input so you can manually specify the harmony from a keyboard.

Harmonizr iTunes Description:

Harmonizr is a vocal harmonizer offering a unique and fun user interface. You can sing a melody, setting the appropriate key centers, and Harmonizr will do the rest, giving 3 voices of automatic harmony. A preset mechanism allows you to change the harmonization, and an editor allows you to customize how you want to harmonize each type of key center (major, minor, and dominant). Harmonizr also supports MIDI input, both to detect key center, and to provide a mechanism for keyboard players to manually specify harmony. There is a 10-voice limit in manual harmonization, and it can be used in conjunction with the automatic voices to create a richer sound, with a total of 14 voices.

There is an official tutorial, and embedded here is a demo by Doug Woods from thesoundtestroom!

Beatball Metronome by Dmitry Klochkov

ChordFlow developer Dmitry Klochkov released Beatball Metronome. In addition to offering Ableton Link support, it has a really cute animation of a bouncing ball. Perhaps even more important than a bouncing ball, the app also offers different sounds besides the traditionally aggravating click-click-click-click-click-click-click.

Beatball Metronome iTunes Description:
