i searched for sound library soundcloud, and this is what i came across.
kind of works out for what i want to do – offer sounds out to people to do stuff with…
this Speedy J thing comes with an interface too, which is a good way forward.
he’s managed to do some interesting things over the last how-ever many years (interesting live shows with a VJ, Loudboxer loops lp…), so this is probably good too…
‘will get back on this soon.

was looking for info about Electronics & Music Maker magazine, but couldn’t find much, so i think i’ll set up a saved search on ebay and see what that turns up.

Gristleizer….Build 2 (not much progress, some parts bought though)

Posted in creative practice, gear with tags on 06/07/2010 by sync24

when i bought parts for the Dronelab build (https://sync24.wordpress.com/tag/dronelab/) i got a few bits i needed for this.
i already have a load of resistors and some capacitors, but it’s the main bits, like chips and transistors, that are more specific and which i don’t have. ‘bit of a learning curve to get the right parts online, i managed to buy some huge mega-volt rated caps (ooops#1) and some wierd stepped pots, which are nice but don’t ‘sweep’ like i need (ooops#2).
i’m going to go through everything anyway, and see what else i need and try and get a new order together. i had a quick look on mouser last night and found some bits i need were out (chips), but spotted them on ebay…
anyway, i found a new-ish blog from chris carter about his gristleizer stuff and the other one that you can currently buy here:

and the $99 kit looks tempting from the smashing guitar fellas in the states… but i’ll finish what i started first.
