Good to see more features coming along to molecule synth. Looks like there’s plenty to look forward to in the not too distant future, and new features that are going to make it easier to interface with other hardware.
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.
It’s just one of those subjects that’s been there in the back of my mind for a long time, and when I saw that SOS had a feature on modulars I knew I had to get a copy and see what they had to say.
After a quick glance it looks like it’s a good thorough piece, which is probably a bad thing in many ways as it’ll mean I more likely to get hooked.
Oh dear …
I’ve posted about the molecule synth ‘table of elements‘ before. It’s such a great idea with some great molecules / elements to come. But I thought I’d dwell on a few of them just to mention the ones I really am excited about.
I’m not quite sure what the infrared distance sensor will actually do, but I can tell you what I’d like it to do at some point in the future, or indeed when it first arrives.
I’d love to be able to use the infrared to receive an infrared signal from a Nebulophone, or even a Palm OS PDA. The output could be as an LFO or other controller.
I hope it’ll be the first or one of the first to be launched.
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.
