8-bit console inspired Chiptune Mix

Sometimes music-mixes hits the mood so perfectly. This mix has a nice blend of 8-bit console inspired chipmusic, that come along with sold beats and a relaxed, retro-urban atmosphere. Enjoy the night!

Spectral Eye: On the fly harmonics detection

The lovely app “Spectral Eye” is not only a neat music-visualizer, but makes jamming along with music not only possible, but really fun. The app consists of a “harmonics-ring”, where the frequencies of the current input sound is mapped to notes (from C, C#, D etc. to B). You can at a glance and on the fly see the main base harmonics of the current track playing. If you start playing the main notes, you instantly “got” the music harmonies. And you can see the play of the overtones as well.

Of course, there are apps in the market, that automatically match the harmonics and apply “automatic to MIDI magic” for example. But the human factor like “seeing the notes and start playing” is sort of charming and makes this a recommended music app!

Raspberry Pi as Gaming Platform

I am lately interested in the Raspberry Pi as a gaming platform. And say what? There are a couple of interesting projects doing exactly this. There is for example Cave Story available for the Raspberry! Between other goodies, browse for example the game-tag at the Raspberry-site.

Another cool project seems to be the “RetroPie-Project“. This is a dedicated Raspberry-distribution, that aims at turning the Pi instantly into a retro-gaming console.

Got more interesting project? Feel free to leave a comment!

Korg LittleBits

Hey people. There is new stuff from Korg flying into the shops. Check out the LittleBits.

Korg defines its new market-strategy once again: getting out nice-price gadgets, that dips into new areas of creating sound (think of Kaoss Pad Mini 2, Volca series, DS-10, Monotribe…). This strategy reminds me a bit on the things, that Nintendo does 15 – 25 years ago. Market-innovation from Japan?
