schade; ¤ 40 (studenten) ¤ 60 (rest van de wereld)

info en reserveren; lukas at

Computer Controlled Voltage – Workshop over hoe je je (modulaire) analoge synthesizer kan besturen met je computer.

Heb je oude analoge synthesizers en ben je geinteresseerd in het gebruiken van die synths in je muziek? Wil je een analoge synth integreren in je digitale studio set-up?
Oude analoge synths werken met CV en gate of trigger, hebben meestal geen MIDI en kunnen daarom maar moeilijk worden geintergreerd in een digitale studio set-up.  Maar dat is nou net wat je wilt; je oude synth controleren met je computer en combineren met harddisk recording en samples. Deze workshop gaat over het gebruik van synthesizers die geen midi hebben, in combinatie met een computer (die bv Ableton-Live draait).

De workshop bestaat uit 4 delen van ieder ongeveer 2 uur op 9, 16, 23 en 30 maart;
