Download ServerGRIS for free. Spatilization tool in in 2D and 3D. The ServerGRIS is an external multichannel sound spatializer for different configurations of speakers in 2D (plane mode: X and Y axis) or 3D (vertical mode: X, Y and Z axis). It is based on the JackRouter HAL plugin which is installed at the same time as the Server.
Roald Baudoux's insight:
ServerGRIS is for 3D setups (instead of 2D for former SpatGRIS) and is not limited to the number of outputs per track your usual DAW can support.

New Super Microphone Can Hear You in a Crowded Stadium | E-gesture: Music, composition, gesture, acoustics, perception... | Scoop.it
I have an uncanny knack for making a fool of myself when I’m in a crowd, and it always seems like everyone goes silent right when I’m saying the most embarrassing thing.

VCV is an really great (and free) way to use emulations of euroracks modules in your setup, currently as standalone ( MAC, PC and Linux), and soon as a plugin in you DAW with Rack Bridge VST/AU plugin. Many modules are yet included and specially the audible instruments, based on the famous Mutable series ! i'm testing right now on High Sierra and all works fine, Fun tool ! more infos: https://vcvrack.com/

A new project from Responsive environments. A kind of keyboard, which can detect touch, proximity, electric field, pressure, and stretch. This last feature will certainly interest dancers looking for interaction between movements and music modulation for example. All these sensors in one easily transportable interface could be great. More on the project: https://www.media.mit.edu/projects/FabricKeyboard/overview/
Quincy King's curator insight, July 20, 2017 8:36 PM

FabricKeyboard, well first off its super cool! But I was shocked to see just how interactive and responsive it was to different methods of information input or rather the various ways you can manipulate the fabric itself to get a response! This instrument is a multi-modal, Fabric-based stretchable musical interface. It is structure as a keyboard and has a lot of the same means of expressiveness but also has has a "non-contact" feature in which you can produce a sound from a given hand gesture such as waving your hand.

This post presents WaveNet, a deep generative model of raw audio waveforms. We show that WaveNets are able to generate speech which mimics any human voice and which sounds more natural than the best existing Text-to-Speech systems, reducing the gap with human performance by over 50%.

We also demonstrate that the same network can be used to synthesize other audio signals such as music, and present some striking samples of automatically generated piano pieces.

If you know the hot hand ring, here a challenger. Wave from Genkiinstruments send MID via Bluetooth, using your hands movements (same as hot hand), but they also add some real buttons on the ring, useful to send play/stop and more. A sensor let's you also trigger samples using any surface. Last but not least, they also provide Wavefront, an Eurorack module to use the Wave with your modular system.

Disintegrated Cracklebox

Disintegrated Cracklebox | E-gesture: Music, composition, gesture, acoustics, perception... | Scoop.it
Our disintegrated cracklebox kit is inspired by Michel Waisvisz's Cracklebox and his use (and abuse) of one of the earliest examples of an integrated operational amplifier. The original used the LM709, an old (and obsolete) chip by today's standards. So in our kit we have effectively taken the integrated circuit of the operational amplifier and…
Roald Baudoux's insight:
Seeking for a crackle box (kraakdoos) ? This kit was designed with the idea of replacing the vintage op-amp of the original design with components which won’t be discontinued any soon. Also, there is a mini-jack output and a socket for a power transformer, both lacking in the original device. You don’t get a wooden box as with Steim’s version but the price is much lower too!
