ChaosEngine Fixed

My NWS ChaosEngine was broken out of the box. Fortunately I've done some diy in the past.

After several emails with the designer Nick. I've swapped the chip with one in my components collection.

And now it seems to acting normally - when I turn down the osc1 in mode 2, all the other oscs would go down and finally into unison. Quite a special sound!

New blog of mine - Kalimba Innovative

Please check out my other blog :
http://kalimbainnovative.blogspot.com/

-----

I've been making electronic music for more than 11 years. And I am in love with kalimbas for quite some time.

I've been buying them, making my own arrangement/tuning, trying best way to record them and most importantly, trying to be able to express myself as much as I can with those little wonders.

This blog (Kalimba Innovative) is for sharing my knowledge, research, experience and thoughts about the instruments and playing technique, also I'll share anything nice that has something to do with kalimbas.

Best luck, stay calm, be nice, enjoy music and enjoy your life.

Tenori-on Sync Issue



For a little live set this weekend, I've made a setup:
MDuw+Minicommand+Tenori-On

I tried to sync the Tenori-On from the UW, but just found out that the sync feature of Tenori-on is crappy. It looks like that software is unfinished.

It is even better to do manual sync like what dj will do rather than using the midi clock.

FlStudio 10 Announced

http://www.image-line.com/documents/news.php?entry_id=1301017795&title=fl-studio-10

New FlStudio 10 announced. This blog post is for a chance to win a contest but also I've something to say about the software.

I've seen that it has quite a few very, very detailed optimization on controlling and workflow of the software. But the only feature that I want the most is a project folder based file saving. No all recorded data at the same folder anymore!
