After some difficulties with the old provider kvsu now finally has a new website up and running! Plus some new graphics… maybe more coming soon?
This week at Papernoise
- Big surprise: I did some more panel graphics for #eurorack modules!
- kvsu finally has a new website! http://www.kvsu.net/
As usual it made me loose so much time to do really simple things… life keeps reminding me that I’m a designer, not a programmer.
- The YM_MINI MIDI board works like a charm, you can download the project files to make your own from here. Also check this discussion on chipmusic.org about it. It’s now officially confirmed that the MIDI board also works for the ANSI MIDIo.
- I was finally able to build the delay module and half of the filter for my SK-1 mod. slowly this project is advancing.
- If you think you can do better at designing graphics for Mutable Instruments gear, here you get some colouring sheets: mutable-instruments.net/forum/
- The PreenFM2 has a new logo and design… and I can’t deny that I had something to do with it.

YM_MINI midi board. built and working! now it only needs a case!
Prototype PCBs for the YM_MINI MIDI board just arrived! Now let’s see if I have routed everything correctly…
This week at Papernoise HQ!
Inspired by Olivier’s weekly facebook updates on what goes on at Mutable Instruments (https://www.facebook.com/mutable.instruments) I decided to do a similar thing here on my tumblog.
So… what happened this week at Papernoise HQ:
- Been quite busy drawing new Indian decorations and panel graphics for a mysterious new Mutable Instruments module. You won’t believe it, but this time it’s no paisley…
- Stickers and PCB art for the first batch of Hexinverter.net Mutant Drums are done, these things are getting real soon (though I don’t know how soon)
- Tried to figure out if making a small batch of wooden eurorack cases would make sense. But in the end I decided that it doesn’t. The project is postponed to later
- Done more panel design for somebody who will have to remain secret for now.
- Worked on a cover illustration for a book about Piero Umiliani, the Italian Jazz musician responsible for Mahna Mahna, made famous by the Muppet Show.
- My dayjob is kind of killing me, I wish I had more time to dedicate to Papernoise… which will hopefully happen soon!
I wish we had this at school.
Finally we see some first videos of the aleph in action. For those who have decided to spend the rest of their lives living on a faraway planet without internet connection, the aleph is the latest creation from the makers of the monome and is a mix between a computer, a controller, an fx processor and a sound generator.
It costs a lot of money, we’re talking $1400 here, but it’s packing a lot of horsepower in one compact shell.
Now I must admit that this first video didn’t really impress me. What I see in the video feels like yet-another-synth, but with a much worse interface than what I already have.
But hey, the aleph can do much more than this, so I guess I’ll just keep watching out for new videos.
As usual CDM has a nice article on it here: createdigitalmusic.com
coming soon….. #oplab #musicalexperimentboard #aluminium #case #teenageengineering
Usually softsynths don’t excite me that much, but in case of Madrona Labs things are a bit different.
Kaivo is an interesting mix of physical modeling and granular sampling, with the usual shot of Buchla inspired features like on the Aalto.
What would this album sound like? 😜 A Digisound/Aries modular system on top of a Fender Rhodes Mark II Seventy-Three. Plus a Moog Etherwave for the left hand.

BASTTUZ MK1 semi modular synthesizer
This i so badass!
Kits and built units will be available from http://groovesizer.comvery soon.
This video demonstrates the 7 play modes of the Groovesizer RED.
The Groovesizer RED is a DIY 16-step MIDI sequencer and granular synth. It’s based on the original Groovesizer mk1 Arduino project. It features 16 LEDs (one per step), 5 potentiometers, and 5 buttons, MIDI input and ouput on 5-pin DINs, MIDI sync in and out, and audio out (mono) on an 1/8” jack. There are 32 user locations for saving patterns and patches. Up to 4 patterns can be chained together to create a 4 bar pattern. Note entry can be quantized to one of 12 pre-defined scales. Patterns can be triggered and transposed via MIDI. Notes can also be entered via an attached MIDI keyboard.
