In this first episode of Making Virtual Instruments & Effects, Dr. Lawrence W. Moore announces that the first 2 series within the overall series program will be dedicated to making instruments and effects with MobMuPlat and Pure Data. One can make their own mobile apps using MobMuPlat to create the graphic user interface, GUI, and PD as the audio/midi engine to drive the app.
In this first episode, we start out simply by making a simple synthesizer so one can see how MobMuPlat and PD work together and test the simple app on your device. This series will open up a whole new world of virtual instrument creation, where your imagination is the only limitation.
A series page will be posted after the release of the next episode.
Dr. Lawrence W. Moore announces what new videos will be coming up in LWM Music's plans for summer synthesis, electronic music, and electro-acoustic music tutorials. Moore will be hosting a new series on MobMuPlat (Mobile Music Platform) and Pure Data, which will show viewers how to build graphic user interfaces for controlling PD patches on mobile devices. Moore will also be continuing the Learning Electronic Music Production with Reason series. Additionally, Lawrence will also be looking at turning Sunday Night Synthesis into a live streaming event in the future. All in all, LWM Music has plans to grow over the summer.
Moore also shows viewers his new studio setup, which now features a Mackie 32 channel, 8 bus analog mixing console. This mixer is to be used for analog summing in the mixing process. To take full benefit of this mixer, Moore is now using two MOTU 16A interfaces, networked via ethernet cable. The MOTU AVB line of interfaces allow one to treat multiple interfaces as one interface. This setup will be used for the mixing of the upcoming Wayfarer album release, "A Wayfarer's Journey," which is also the soundtrack for the YouTube Minecraft series by the same name at The Wayfarer Project Channel on YouTube.
