The UI

Mac AU

These need to be installed by hand, in the usual way:
Mac AU: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
Mac VST: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
Win VST: Wherever your VSTPlugIns folder lives

We look forwards to hearing what you think of these!

Also, if you really like this, and want to encourage us to add features, or maybe you reckon we should stick it to the man, and pour all our time into doing things like this.. let us know:

MusicHackDay is over!

July 12th, 2009

Wow, what a weekend.

MusicHackDay has drawn to a close, we’ve given our presentation, and here is the hack page.

We’re going to polish the UI a bit before we upload the binaries, but we should have plugins for you by tonight! :D

I’m struggling to write this over the temptation to just sit and play the synth… hope you enjoy it as much as we do! :D

MusicHackDay was a great experience; I had a great time, and it was awesome to meet so many people from the other side of the industry! There are some really talented guys making the interwebs sound good! Check out the hacks at the musichackday wiki!! Hopefully you’ll all get to play with MusicBore (the grand prize winner) sometime soon. It’s funny as hell!!

Thanks again to Dave@SoundCloud for letting us come along!!

Clip 3!

Envelopes, self-oscillating filter!!!

Second clip…

Woo! There’s a modal chord mechanism now; you can select a key and a mode, and then the notes you play pick the chord from the scale. It figures out the notes for you, which is a blessing for me ;)

We’ve added LFOs too, and this clip is a single line unprocessed.

Progress so far… VST Win+Mac+AU Mac:

Some LFO on PWM and Sync, adjusting the “chord” knob and the “scale” knob, but playing one note :)
