Meet The Rabid Goats; Univox and Solovox

By James Thompson | 13th April 2014

Of all the instruments featured in The Attic, the Jennings Univox and the Hammond Solovox are by far the oldest and strangest.

By James Thompson | 5th April 2014

On April 1st we released Concert Kazoos - a free instrument featuring 25 tuned kazoos/ mouth horns, made by Suzuki. Was it a joke? Yes and no - we really did release the instrument, and it really was made of recordings of 25 tuned kazoos etc etc. We liked the idea of doing an April Fools releas...

By Dan Powell | 24th March 2014

unlocked-header-big
In the post about Keyboard Split I mentioned that the same script could be edited to enable every input note to have a it’s own output channel and MIDI note.  Nobody took up the challenge, but a couple of people wrote with ideas about how that should be done, so here’s the version I've made. ...

Scriptorium : Channel Rotate

By Dan Powell | 14th January 2014

unlocked-header-big
In the comments of the last KSP post Kevin suggested an idea for a channel rotate script, much like the Alternate Assign MIDI mode of some early Yamaha synths like the TX-81Z or TX-802.   In this mode, each note received was sent to a successive channel in the multi.  It made for some interesting...
