~ Connecting Musical Modules - Musical Hardware and Software Interfaces» By Joren on Saturday 19 March 2016
I have given a presentation at the the Newline conference, a yearly event organized by the Hackerspace Ghent. It was about:
“In this talk I will give a practical overview on how to connect hard- and software components for musical applications. Next to an overview there will be demos! Do you want to make a musical instrument using a light sensor? Use your smartphone as an input device for a synth? Or are you simply interested in simple low-latency communication between devices? Come to this talk! More concretely the talk will feature the Axoloti audio board, Teensy micro-controller with audio board, MIDI and OSC protocols, Android MIDI features and some sensors.”
During the presentation the hard and software components were demonstrated. More concretely an introduction was given to the following:
- Axoloti audio board: An audio DSP board.
- Teensy 3.2: A general purpose microcontroller with audio capabilities.
- TarsosDSP: A library for audio processing in Java available for Android.
