Community : Reaktor User Library I’ve always admired classically-styled modular instruments, particularly the ones sold by synthesizers.com. But my aversion to having to tear apart a cool-sounding patch to create the next one ensures that I’m unlikely to ever buy a true patchable analog modular. So, here’s a modular synthesizer for Reaktor, based on modules available from synthesizer.com. It’s designed to fit in a 44-module walnut cabinet. A few of the modules are modified or enhanced to suit my whims. The modules included are: 1 MIDI Interface 1 Slew Limiter 1 Noise Source 6 Voltage-Controlled Oscillators 3 Voltage-Controlled Filters 2 8-Input Mixers 1 Sample/Hold 2 Control Voltage Processors 3 Voltage-Controlled Amplifiers 3 ADSR Envelope Generators 1 Fixed Filter Bank 1 Voltage-Controlled Pan/Xfade 1 Ring Modulator 1 Shaper 1 Voltage-Controlled Delay 1 Oscilloscope/Voltmeter 1 Stereo Output Mixer 1 Stereo Output Chorus Module inputs are visualized as drop-down menus which display the available module outputs.

A hand possessed! New finger stimulating device will help wannabe musicians learn their favourite tunes By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 07:10 GMT, 23 June 2011 If you've ever tried to learn the guitar or violin, moving your fingers just right can sometimes prove difficult. Now an invention by a group of Japanese scientists could teach you how to mimic your favourite tunes - even if you have no talent. The PosessedHand is an electronic device that stimulates the muscles on your forearm that move your fingers. HandPossessed: The Device stimulates muscles in the forearm to produce movements in the fingers and could be used by wannabe musicians This means it could be programed to move your fingers in time with your favourite guitar solo - without your brain needing to think about it. Using a belt worn around the forearm, the machine contains 28 electrodes which flex each of the joints in your fingers and thumb as well as producing two wrist movements. Designer: Emi Tamaki led the research using a Japanese stringed instrument called the Koto
Akai MPC Fly iPad Controller: Turns Your Pad into a Portable Music Production Center January 21st, 2012 by Range More and more, we’re seeing solutions for electronic musicians who want to take their show on the road without getting too cluttered up. The iPad is one of the most portable computers available right now, and there’s no doubt that performers are happy to turn theirs into a music-making machine. While there are plenty of dedicated music-making apps for the iPad, the Akai MPC Fly Pad Controller for iPad 2 is an interesting addition to any musician’s arsenal, since it adds tactile pads, while taking advantage of the iPad 2′s powerful brains. The controller/case features a double hinge which docks with the iPad, allowing it to sit upright, lie flat, or close – clamshell-style, protecting your iPad for travel. It features 16 MPC pads and works with the accompanying MPC app, which has a 4-track mixer that comes preloaded with samples and drums.
