I posted the other day about an idea I’d had for a patch sheet for the molecule synth. Well I wasn’t entirely happy with the idea and decided to change it to make it more usable. I hope to have a version all sorted by the end of the week all things being equal.
The new version makes it a lot easier to use and work with and I plan to post it up to the Molecule synth forums too.
I backed TWINE on kickstarter. I thought it was a great idea. I still do. What I struggle with a bit though is what to use it for. So, after a long period of not using it, I’ve upgraded it to the latest firmware. Now it can tweet and respond to vibration etc.
However, this doesn’t really help, I still don’t know quite what I’m going to use it for. It’s very interesting to get it to tweet the temperature, but so what? I’m sure that eventually I’ll work out a way of making this do something worthwhile. When I do, I’ll let you know.
Having never done this before it was a real experience. Very different and I certainly learnt something new.
I’ve been thinking about this now and trying to decide how I’d use the MIDI on the molecule synth. It doesn’t really work in the way I’d expected, but nevertheless it’s still quite an interesting feature to play with.
My plan will be to use either Lemur or TouchOSC to control the module over MIDI, but the first choice is what kind of synth to load into the MIDI module?
Mozzi would be an obvious choice, but to start with I think I’ll go with the stuff that’s in the manual.
Getting a bit closer toward the potential of the molecule synth.
The LFO really adds a lot to the synth especially in terms of the visual impact of the device.
