Ellen Allien unleashes her top six dancefloor slammers Berlin-based DJ producer and BPitch Control boss Ellen Allien is a true creative at heart. Through her signature blend of leading-edge techno, classic electro, and experimental electronic, she’s been a genuine fixture on the global dance music scene over the past two decades. In our latest weekly Weekend Weapons segment, we spoke with the German dance luminary to get her top six dancefloor slammers of the moment including the standout single “Come To Me” from her latest three-track EP Freak. Read on below to find out what’s floating her boat behind-the-decks right now. D-type Flip Flop Counter or Delay Flip-flop But in order to prevent this from happening an inverter can be connected between the “SET” and the “RESET” inputs to produce another type of flip flop circuit known as a Data Latch, Delay flip flop, D-type Bistable, D-type Flip Flop or just simply a D Flip Flop as it is more generally called. The D Flip Flop is by far the most important of the clocked flip-flops as it ensures that ensures that inputs S and R are never equal to one at the same time. The D-type flip flop are constructed from a gated SR flip-flop with an inverter added between the S and the R inputs to allow for a single D (data) input.

Interfacing with a DAC (Digital/Analog Converter) for Sound Synthesis with the Netduino In previous two posts, I created a midi interface for the Netduino. For kicks, here's what it looks like soldered rather than on the breadboard (and beside it, a shot of the disaster my desk has become during this project. There's actually a Commodore 128 in the rubble to the right): Gladly, I've since cleaned that up. :) The two posts covering the MIDI interface are: Billionaire Boys Club Blog Our apologies for not updating the blog; we’ve been caught up with the latest BBCICECREAM releases. We know this is late, but better late than never! SpongeBob SquarePants threw Pharrell a 41st Birthday celebration at Cipriani’s on Wall Street. The space was transformed into Bikini Bottom and featured special guests such as SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Celebrity friends. Check out the decor and pictures after the jump!

Making waves – Open Music Labs’ DSP Shield – Arduino – freeRTOS There’s a great new Arduino Uno (pre-R3) Shield available from Open Music Labs. Their Audio Codec Shield is an Arduino shield that uses the Wolfson WM8731 codec. It is capable of sampling and reproducing audio up to 88kHz, 24bit stereo, but for use with the Arduino it is practically limited to 44kHz, 16bit stereo. The 15 best Boiler Room sets of far Boiler Room has provided some incredible sets so far in 2015, from South Africa to Moscow, from Tulum to Glasgow, from global superstars to underground cult heroes, they've provided dance floor moments for people all over the globe. Here we run through our top so far. 15. Answer Code Request Boiler Room London Live Set The Ostgut Ton man's live techno set captivated.

Recording Impulse Responses With growing computing power over the last decade, convolution plugins have become commonplace. Some of the most common ones include Audio Ease Altiverb, Logic’s Space Designer, Avid TL Space, Waves IR-1 and McDsp Revolver. They are usually packaged with large and useful libraries of impulse responses (more on what all this means below), but what makes them really powerful is the fact that it is quite easy to record and use your own impulse responses. This not only helps ‘personalise’ your mixes, but is extremely useful in post-production and in the design of new sounds. Algorithmic symphonies from one line of code Lately, there has been a lot of experimentation with very short programs that synthesize something that sounds like music. I now want to share some information and thoughts about these experiments. First, some background.

Stussy x Nike Capsule Collection Stussy and Nike Sportswear’s history of collaboration is rekindled once more through the release of a sneaker, jacket, and t-shirt. The collection honoring Stussy’s thirtieth anniversary begins with black and white versions of the All Court Mid Supreme that feature a premium leather upper and accents on the Swoosh and heel. Nike’s letterman-inspired Destroyer Jacket is specially adorned with Stussy embroidery, and an organic cotton tee bearing an ode to the brand’s longstanding heritage rounds out the collection. The collection is available at all Stussy chapters on Friday, December 3rd, 2010.

RA Poll: Top 20 albums of 2015 A great single keeps you dancing and whistling, and can whisk an artist from the bedroom to the main stage in what feels like an instant. But you sense that lots of producers leave some part of themselves in the workshop, which helps explain the enduring appeal of the artist album. This is the format where producers can say, "I am this. But I'm also this and this, too." Pitch Shifting Using The Fourier Transform With the increasing speed of todays desktop computer systems, a growing number of computationally intense tasks such as computing the Fourier transform of a sampled audio signal have become available to a broad base of users. Being a process traditionally implemented on dedicated DSP systems or rather powerful computers only available to a limited number of people, the Fourier transform can today be computed in real time on almost all average computer systems. Introducing the concept of frequency into our signal representation, this process appears to be well suited for the rather specialized application of changing the pitch of an audio signal while keeping its length constant, or changing its length while retaining its original pitch.
