This is a pretty good basic introduction to theremins and how they work from G4TV’s Attack of the Show segment called It’s Effing Science.
Blog posting has been and will be light throughout this month. I am battling Assembly Language for a Machine Organization class this quarter and it is taking up a lot of my spare time. The good news: I am taking the summer off and should be able to increase post frequency as well as kick off some other projects I have been considering.
Several weeks back I posted about the grand-daddy of analog synth emulators, Propellerhead’s Rebirth, which emulates a Roland TB-303 synth. The 303 is known for producing the “acid” sound in various forms of electronic music and the Rebirth software does a great job reproducing this sound. The Rebirth also provides TR-909 and TR-808 drum machine emulators to provide a nice little mini studio package for those who want to explore these classic sounds. Well now, Propellerheads has ported the Rebirth into an app for the Iphone, Ipod and Ipad!
