Brainsynth
« on: Fri, Feb 26, 2021, 16:45 PM »
Hola amigos,

At some point when I was drunk I might have ranted at you about this project, where i was going to control a synthesiser with only my brain (look ma no hands).  Well, itís now real - see here from about the 28 minute mark!

Hope youíre all good!  This lockdown is a bit much, ken?

Thatís one erratic heartbeat youíve given yourself with all that meditating. I have a Qu-bit module (or 3) and I believe they use this raspberry pie hardware of which ye spake?

(The closest iíve gotten to meditation and music is that one time I fell asleep playing the accordion - in front of an audience too. The notes didnít go up or down, they just stopped. Minter.)

Yeah I think the nebulae has a pi inside it?  Iíve become totally obsessed with them over the last year.

This was something I wanted to make since seeing this David Gilmour live acoustic thing where he just had an acoustic but had synth sounds in the background and me being me spent the whole time worrying more about the mechanics of how he was triggering the synth (probably a tape, right?) than the performance.  Itís a wee gesture sensor that senses the direction of the swipes and sends out midi notes depending on the direction (excuse the guitar playing 😂):

This might be my favourite thing that Iíve done.  It cycles through the shipping forecast locations, gets weather data and turns it into midi data again.  You set the scale and it snaps the notes to that scale so itís always playing some kind of chord.  Learnt more about music theory making that than Iíve learnt in 30 years of playing guitar badly 😂:
