Devsound has been busy this week!

Posted on January 26th, 2011

We (we being salkinitzor & linde) started the week by modding/circuitbending my Yamaha Electone organ. It now have: More and stronger reverb, slow and strange phaser knob, a volumeknob for turning down the drummers noisechannel. (hihats and such) The original plan was to try and trig the single drums and thus building either drumpads to place on the organ lid. And/or smack MIDI in to it! We havnt given up on that yet. A LINK to a similar project.

Also i recived a big pack of guitarpedal-kits the other day from Sebastian. Among them 3 Delays, a Big Muff, Orange Squeezer Compressor, a vintage phaser etc. I started building the Orange Squeezer and i posted a picture of it in its temporary enclosure. You can also see the goodiebag of electronic joy on that picture.

Last but not least: We went to Forsken in Malmö to hang out with geeks & nerds and Philip got a chance to show what he can do with a C64, an arduino, a regular laptop and a joystick port. He can transfer stuf!

Great stuf!

Ill let Sebastian do the talking:

This is a recording of my DIY guitar amp played with my Sigma Les Paul.

It is recorded with volume settings 8 o’clock, 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock and at maximum volume. The microphone used is a Røde Procaster and it is placed straight on axis but a little bit off center. The amp where recorded into Pro Tools and I’ve added slight reverberation, EQ and compression.

Posted on January 5th, 2011

This is a pretty standard party at Fridhem in Karlshamn where I (niklas) spent 3 years of my life during my time at BTH. I get nostalgic when watching this! So many great things happening in one video. Breaking the “tamburmajor”, Rockard playing the synth, Kalle having leds on his Robotsuit. Great times!

This is what life is all about.
