Following up on last week’s post about mO, we’ll take it a notch further today by adding a MIDI controller to our code. You will need: MIDI controller that works with your computer Processing on mac, windows or linux. your sound setup with processing the midiBus library Beads audio library controlP5 library The beauty of [...] Read more – ‘d.i.y. soft synth with midi controller in processing’.
Learning electronic music has been a more complex task than initially planned. I’ve been playing around with few toys like Nord Micro Modular, microKORG, KP3, TENORI-ON and Dark Energy. Although my main synth is a virtual modular synth, there were still the basics of sound that I couldn’t grasp. So I started to learn to [...] Read more – ‘programing audio ~ d.i.y. simple soft synth’.
I really like visual computer audio creation tools, and I’ve started playing around with Processing, controlP5 and Beads in order to prototype some sort of digital instrument. This little instrument is called plo (for no reason) and it’s a softh synth with 1 sine osc and a sampler. All the knobs are not functional ~ [...] Read more – ‘mad scientist noise synth’.
I finally took some time to test my new hardware setup. I got myself a quad core 3 GHz, 4G of RAM, with a ZOTAC NVIDIA GPU in order to do more 3D and multimedia. And last night I was able to play around ~ trying out Processing and OpenGL, creating some random code and [...] Read more – ‘3D tripping’.
I call it a new season because during the fall/winter/early spring, since the quietness of the outside makes it a perfect time for multimedia creation.Now that I am back from my yoga retreat for the summer I’ll be catching up with all the project that keep going forward! I took 2 month of time this [...] Read more – ‘New season !’.
I know it’s been a month now that I haven’t blog! Too much is happening here – from wordpress moving to version 3, to my come back to school (in information technology) to all my project moving forward, and summer kicking in ~ there wasn’t much time left. I also prepared a introduction to processing [...] Read more – ‘k-12 presentation’.
I haven’t received my new video camera yet so I will have to delay the post about my audio mixer ~ so I decided to post some example of other project I am tinkering with. This is a small video project that I did in processing. This is only the output of the project. I [...] Read more – ‘video and processing’.
I created my first prototype of the mixer. It’s more an experiment than a prototype from the fact that I only attached 6 knob to the arduino to start with. Here are some picture of the making of the mixer. I used a normal plastic project box to do the trick, to give it some [...] Read more – ‘2nd step DIY audio mixer processing & arduino’.
This is my new processing self teaching project. In this project I wanted to built a mouse control spaceship that would shoot and crash if it reaches the celling or the floor. It’s not object oriented at all and the code is quite messy ~ and I won’t clean it up until I reuse to [...] Read more – ‘processing ~ new spaceship game!’.
EDIT: Just so people are aware I am using the excellent book Learning processing written by Daniel Shiffman, which I forgot to mention since this article is part of a series of article about my self taught Processing training. END OF EDIT ~ This is my second project for processing fish pond. It’s not a [...] Read more – ‘fish pond’.
So I embark a new programming language. Processing . It’s a fairly simple language, and I am using Daniel Shifman’s really good bookLearning Processing. It remind me when I was learning basic on my Vic0-20 when I was 8 years old. It’s really really really fun and since I always have been a half assed [...] Read more – ‘learning processing …’.
