Tesla Coil Samples

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

For those who follow my social media streams, you may have already seen the various DIYAudio, DIYSynth, DIYrepair projects going on around here for the past year. One of these projects is the oneTesla Musical Tesla Coil kit. In “synth speak” it’s essentially a pulse wave oscillator. The oneTesla incorporates an arduino […]

Korg MS-10 Ressurection

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Last winter, my friends, Ryan and Lisa came for a visit and brought along a Roland TR-606 and a Korg MS-10, both of which were not working.  The 606 was easy to fix since the lead to the battery compartment had come loose.  The MS-10, however, was a completely different story and required a lot […]

mØxr - CV Audio to MIDI Converter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

mØxr is a MaxMSP based application that converts Control Voltages as audio signal to monophonic MIDI note messages. The application must receive two CV signals through audio connections, a Gate CV and a Note CV. While any audio signal can trigger a MIDI note message, mØxr is calibrated specifically for the Note CV […]

Minimoog Voyager CV/Gate control from Record

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Last year, I posted a few items on using Reason CV/Gates to control analog synths through a MOTU audio interface, and recently, I’ve received an unusual amount of email inquiring about the concept of controlling analog synths via Record. I figured it’s about time that I should post this, a Record session file with […]

Reason CV to Roland DIN Sync

Monday, July 20th, 2009

In this continuing quest to interface analog hardware to Reason 4.0, It’s become very apparent that only a few brands on hardware interfaces feature DC coupled outputs which will enable direct routing of control voltage signals (CV) from software applications to analog devices. Since the release of MOTU Volta, people have been trying to […]

moogerfooger synth via Reason 4.0

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

This video shows how I have the Reason/Thor MIDI to CV conversion process applied to the moogerfoogers. The MF-107 FreqBox oscillator output is connected directly into the MF-101 Low pass filter. Thor’s key note value, mod wheel, pitch bend, aftertouch, LFO, and envelope generators all modulate the two pedals to create a functional […]

Reason CV/Gate to Analog Synths

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Lately It seems like the only things I purchase from guitar cnter are connectors and jacks. Yesterday I wandered in to get (more) connectors to make some XLR to 1/8″ phone cables which would further my experiments using Reason 4.0 as a control voltage generator with some of my analog synthesizers. Surprisingly, they had […]
