what is soundwidgets.com?
It's a blog where I post cool stuff I find on the web. I try to post projects which more or less relate to the above topics. Sometimes I just post random stuff.
This also acts as an informal project blog for a music control device I'm designing and building called the Stribe.
I also occasionally post clips and info relating to experimental electronic music I make under the name phineus.
Latest tracks by phineus do you sell stuff?
Actually, yes! You can support The Stribe Project by buying kits from CuriousInventor.com, or by buying Stribe.org T-Shirts or paticipating on the Stribe Project Forum.
You can support Phineus by ordering the Compleat Works of Phineus on USB hard-drive for $25 including shipping. Send e-mail to order. what does "stribe" mean?
It means "stripe" or "striped cloth" in Danish.
A little demo of 'scalar', triggered by a stribe. Scalar is written by vlad spears, of 'balron' fame. By changing simple things like the sensor poll rate, sticky or non-sticky values, MIDI scale, and instrument mappings, I am able to play the stribe in a variety of modes.
Of course the stribe strips can trigger a much higher resolution map than this (1024 potential points of resolution per strip). Though it doesn't demonstrate this unique aspect of the stribe, it's still fun to play with. The strips are much more sensitive than buttons, requiring the lightest touch. Rolling a finger on it's "ball" can produce a variety of subtle effects, a slide from one note to the next, or produce a very rapid 'fingered' pattern.
LED feedback is minimal at this point. Still working on the firmware...
