Discover the wonderful world of the intuitive and free audio software, PureData (pd)! This workshop will introduce pd basics: sound recording and playback, basic routing and control flow, sound synthesis, multichannel sound applications, and networked communication between machines. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to build your own pd patches! Sofia Checa will be leading this workshop.
The Open Music Initiative is happy to invite you to our penultimate workshop of the semester: Making Chip-tunes on the Gameboy. If you have a Gameboy and want to learn how to write chip-tunes using blank cartridges and special software now’s your chance! We will have a few Gameboys on-hand to use as well as Gameboy emulators on the studio computers. No one will be left out! No experience necessary! Get ready for the 8-bit magic!
Come learn how you can make your own USB MIDI controller (for controlling Ableton, Logic, or other DAWs) at our MIDI Controller workshop! We’ll have microcontroller boards for you to play around on, but if you bring your own Teensy board you can bring your controller home with you.
Come learn how to use VCV Rack, an open-source virtual modular synthesizer. This workshop will include several demo projects for you to get hands-on with, and will cover the basics of modular synthesis so you can createt your own unique patches and sounds. Use one of our studio computers or come with VCV Rack installed to take home your patches.
Learn all about Linux as a platform for audio research, programming and music production in our hands-on workshop. We will also show you how to recreate the exact system used in the CS Music Studio (AKW 123).
OMI would like to invite you to the fourth workshop of the semester this Friday, November 30th at 1 pm, where we will learn learn how to build Arduino sensor circuits and use them to control digital audio interfaces through SuperCollider and Max/MSP.
OMI would like to invite you to the third workshop of the semester this Friday, November 16th at 1 pm in AKW 123 where we will learn the basics of hardware hacking. Together we will dissect found circuits and hardware to create new musical devices! No experience is necessary. We hope to see you there!
I just wanted to remind you of OMI’s second workshop of the semester this Friday, November 9th at 1 pm where we will discuss the basics of digital audio systems and tackle programming DSP applications in C via JUCE, a free software development platform for audio plug-ins.
Follow the download instructions on the OOPS (a DSP and synthesis library for C and C++) GitHub page and download JUCE and OOPS before you come in tomorrow if you want to program your very own DSP plug-in!
We hope you will join us for the final workshop of the semester where we will eat pizza and talk about analog synthesis, start putting together an oscillator circuit, and generally basking in the glow of a great series of workshops that had the largest attendance of any semester heretofore.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we can order the right amount of pizza!
