Beamer Arduino

Posted by Scott

This one is for the audio geeks among us. While I was in Austin I got to play around with my friend Beamer’s Arduino Sequencer prototype (see video above). This thing is really fun and has some very interesting features. We both have the Doepfer MAQ-16 which has it’s strengths, but overall is sort of disappointing so I’ve been looking for a replacement. Hopefully Beamer gets his Arduino into production soon, would love to take this on the road.

The Matrix Synth blog posted about the video, there are also some pictures and more info on the sequencer.

Absolutely Ridiculous

Posted by Scott

t-mobile_copyright_magenta So I just learned today that my ex-wireless provider, the German T-Mobile, is attempting to own magenta. Yes, they want to own a color. Here’s a discussion on Engadget that does a bit to downplay the whole thing and a site dedicated to reclaiming magenta. Let’s just hope they don’t change their logo to a rainbow, we’ll have to start designing in grayscale again.
