It would be cool if somehow maybe somebody could use this synth to jam sometime.
Heres the link to the article
First!... ;) I'm piping the synth live to ninbot:2049 right now...
(Tried using the iPad but the controller said Safari wasn't up to the task... am using an old laptop now with the line out fed into my mixer...)
Tom... can we have a ninbot "nb" command set to link this in and control it..? :D
...But how do you play with people, for people. Playing fast around the drums is one thing. But to play with people for others, to listen to, that's something else. That's a whole other world. -- Tony Williams
Wow and sounds so nice.
There is already an interesting command
you can use on ninbot server.
nb mp3 http://synth.media.mit.edu:8000/synth.mp3
That should pipe the synth into the server.
Just remember to do nb stop before you leave :)
please tell me more on how to use this giant synt...
I was one of the lucky ones to create something with anonymouse, I think something cool began to coalesce after 7 minutes http://ninbot.com/play/?plist=ninbot&query=Hooserdaddy&song=20120330_102...
Mouse sure has a way with effects.
You are too kind sir... I actually felt pretty guilty using a $400 KP3 to affect a legendary, room-size, $100K+ modular synth...
@watson: I think there is quite a delay (few seconds) between turning the knobs and the sound in the stream being affected, I believe a few of the switches turn on various synths (SK1 VOICES, VL-TONE VOICES, MINIMOOG & RADIOSHACK MOOG BASS) and some of the knobs affect the pitch etc of those synths. Didn't quite catch what the loop buttons did at all. I think it's best to try to wait to get it all to yourself and then try the controls slowly, it seems everytime someone new logs in, they quickly flick all the buttons, making it hard to determine what is causing the changes. There also would ocasionally burst out melodic patterns that sounded like someone playing a keyboard, which made me wonder if there aren't people physically interacting with it at MIT at the same time...
I'm assuming there are far more controls in use than those on the web interface -- including the keyboards in the pictures. So I guess we're only allowed to tweak a small part :). Maybe there's on-going automation, too.
I seem to get lucky with access - there have been 10 or so people listening but I didn't have to wait for access / no queue. The buttons seem... dead, to be honest. I couldn't work them out at all. The switches... mmm, some settings are subtle. The descriptions for the controls could do with slightly more information...
This looks so fun! It was already enroute to its new location but will reopen in a week or two so i have it bookmarked and on my calendar to try again. Thanks for sharing.
