Expressiv is a plug and play system that brings electronic sounds to real guitar in a whole new way.
The first thing is of course the original design for this new Midi Guitar, but the inbuilt midi XY pad and the 4-way joystick can also be useful tools to add expression to your play. Finally it's a real guitar and this is a good thing too.
Here a complete Youtube channel around some cool sound recording techniques , iterators, passive accumulator, hammers. All are DIY ideas, most of them are easy to reproduce and can give you some ideas to add creative sounds to your composition.
Here a new DIY controller from tkrworks, here 3 ribbon controller +8 RGB leds pads for the neck, 3 x 100mm faders and 24 RGB pads for the body, All in OSC communication. There's also a gyroscope and 3 knobs on the neck. Cool works.

An electronic musical instrument built on a structure of release paper 360 ° . This instrument is modular and includes an oscillator , a frequency divider and a sequencer. Made by Claudia González Godoy
Created by Alexander Zolotov, PhonoPaper is a format of graphical representation of the sound (music, human voice, etc.); in other words, it is the 2D audio barcode (by analogy with the QR-code).
We all dream of this, drawing our music...Here a free app for IOS and Android, a 2D audio barcode (by analogy with the QR-code) based on the great synthesizer ANS by Evgeny Murzin, You can draw some partition, but also use the camera of your phone to read and play your environment. Thanks to http://www.creativeapplications.net/ for the review.
a little musical demonstration using an application called monome sum, a collection of grid instruments including flin, step, gome, corners, mlr and beams. all sounds…
This one is really great, cause it is a ready made application, with several different simplified appz synced together , well known for monome users like Flin, corners and even an MLR lite (http://monome.org/docs/app:sum) . The sigabort team is also working on a version compatible with its Gridlock software, so Launchpad users benefit of this tool soon. (http://www.sigabort.co/gridlock)
Thanks to all member to support Usine, Hollyhock is now in 1.1 version. We made a particular effort to improve the stability and the efficiency of the audio engine.
Usine 1.1 provides a new global ergonomics and design to make Usine simpler than ever with a fresh and user friendly interface.
Also a powerful help system has been implemented to support new users.
Many improvements on this new major update:
- the audio engine is much more efficient - global speed optimization more than 20% on heavy workspaces - loading of patches and workspaces is 2x faster - saving of patches and workspaces is 10x faster -new help system
An interesting project from Romain Michon, a simple arduino based interface , open source .Up to five sensors can be connected to it and configured in a JAVA application to control the parameters of your favorite effect and synths. All is explained on the website to help you built this device
2x DCO 3x LFO 4x ENV 1x Noise Generator 2x 2-pin analog multimode filter (with LM13700 ) 2x VCA filter matrix 5x rotary encoders for parameter input and menu function 1 MB Sample Ram SD card for loading and saving of sound parameters and samples Oscilloscope function and MiniScope Window and much more
Here a fantastic tool for Launchpad (all versions),Push, Quneo, Lemur and TouchOSC users , you can create your own configuration, emulate monome ( up to 7 appz on 1 launchpad !) , this version is really stable and works on Mac and PC, a must have !
The Zaquencer by ZAQ Audio is a custom firmware for the Behringer BCR2000 that will turn it into a standalone MIDI step sequencer. It is not a preset but a n...
The BCR2000 has always inspired many users and programmers (included myself) and this time ,Christian Stöcklmeier creates a complete firmware (not only a preset) to use your BCR as a full 32 Midi steps sequencer with many useful settings . Note : except to upload the firmware, you don't need any computer.
The m!lTone is an open-source synth & MIDI controller.Create music & control video,lights & sound w/ this refreshingly original device.
A really nice look for this kickstarter project. Include is Wave-table Synthesizer with 7 waveforms , over 200 scales,Arpeggiator and Harmonizer and more. It 's also a Midi controller hands-free control with up to 2 ultrasonic sensors.Theremin style, Can be portable (9V battery or solar powered )

If you have this old units from Korg and want like me a tactile Midi interface like you can found on some buchla modular system, here a little hack . The pad keep their velocity sensibility and you win a smooth way to play melodies.
Box of Sound - Directed by Chuck Przybyl, Produced by Mark Salach, Featuring Searchl1te and Antoine Kattar. This short documentary - available here for review…
An interesting short documentary around some process many Electronics musicians use now to enrich their productions . First step in circuit bending, fields recordings and all the steps to create their own personal sounds.
Roger Linn introduced his last version of the LinnStrument at Moogfest and talks about the importance of expressive controllers, this is the full recording o...
Roger Linn demonstrate here his new grid controller, adding expression for all grid lovers . He also talk and show several videos about the main others controllers which are on the same road, Eigenharp, Continuum, and soundplane from Randy Jones
For Reaktor users, here a fantastic ensemble from Uwe G. Hoenig , the famous Travelizer author. GRIP is a polyphonic grain cloud synth. There's an amazing set of samples and presets included. And it's really a pleasure to use and discover/create sounds with this one!
For future Music hardware, we need Future energy and new ways to produce it. Here a cool project ( Thanks to C.Webster for the link) . using the photosynthesis to produce electricity and playing Radio .
Arduino offers definitively some cool and cheap solution for electronic musicians . Here a work in progress interface from the creative Julian aka Multiman aka Inspektor Gadjet : a small interface which lets use you Usb controllers ( nanokontrol, lpd8 etc.) with, for example an old Midi synthesizeur or Expander. see a video example here when was a prototype: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfI12RBaiPs&feature=youtu.be)
FRACTURE is a FREE buffer effect plugin geared toward creating robotic artifacts and abstract musical malfunctions.
A Really cool offer from Glitchmachines ( thanks to C.Webster for the link) "This plugin is geared toward adding glitchy articulations and abstract textures to your projects." And this works with many differents sources with the help of many good presets .( Mac & PC)
The FONOF is the first controller develop by Emmanuelle Gibello to perform and creat her music. This interface is based on a sensor array to “Hall effect”. This…
Here a convincing demonstration of a new interface , the fonof developped by Emmanuelle Gibello .It offer 48 sensors using the “Hall Effect” (magnetic) process, that detect the presence and distance of magnetic pieces.Using an usb connection , it can send informations (0-1 type or proportionnal values) to Music composition software.
