January 21st, 2014

SoftEgg’s Timon Marmex will be performing his 2nd show of this Saturday, January 25th at 23b Shop in Fullerton, California, for an event called “SparkleCon”, a sort of DIY-unconference that is much cooler than it sounds. Also performing will be Cyclops Rock, and there will be visuals by VJ Tim Abad.

Rhythm Core Alpha “Make Chiptunes” standee

January 21st, 2014

We got tired of nobody taking our flyers at shows,  so we made this flashy home brew standee with a real Nintendo DSi in it. Just try and ignore it now!


Ta da!

The thing is constructed around a mount we use for live shows,  so that will have to change eventually.


Mic stand mount detail

The face is just paper between two sheets of acrylic. Cutting acrylic is hard, and we ruined a lot of expensive sheeting.


Acrylic detail

There was to be an aluminum Channel border,  but we didn’t have a way too weld the aluminum in time.

We lit up the back with Christmas Tree lights. Cheap and attention grabbing.  To mount them we just stuck them through a chicken wire mesh.


Lighting mesh

Not so pretty,  but it works.

We’d like to add better backlighting, but so far this is pretty good! We had a lot more interest after we put this up!

In a few weeks we will get to use it again at Rockage in San Jose!

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 at Playstadium this Saturday, January 25th!

January 21st, 2014

Hey, we’ve two events coming up this weekend! First, we are going to be presenting and performing with Rhythm Core Alpha 2 at Playstadium, a new gaming group starting up in Van Nuys, CA at the LASFS HQ.

Don’t forget about customizing sounds and solo modes!

December 15th, 2013

Protip! Don’t forget that you can customize sounds greatly by tapping on the name of the sound (2x for instrument sounds, 1x for drum sounds)… you can load new sounds or greatly modify any of the sounds with envelopes, vibrato, echo and many other features! There are also 10 variations on the solo mode that you can select by tapping on solo again while you are already in the solo mode and selecting the right arrow for the 2nd page of options.

New review from OneUpGaming!

December 15th, 2013

Here is a new review of Rhythm Core Alpha 2 from OneUpGaming!
“Offering a high degree of freedom and control in not only the creation of a song but in what to do with it once written as well, Rhythm Core Alpha 2 is quite possibly the most complete music package on the eShop.”

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 merchandise!

October 17th, 2013

Ok, our Zazzle store is finally live! We don’t really make any money on these items, but those of you who have been clamoring for Rhythm Core Alpha stuff (and Ryko-chan character goods) here are a few things. If there is some particular type of thing you want to order, let me know and I’ll put something up.

Removed the Forums, added a “Files” page.

October 17th, 2013

Since nobody has posted in the forums in years, we have removed them completely. They were making it look like Rhythm Core Alpha was an inactive project, which could not be further from the truth! For those who want to chat with us about Rhythm Core Alpha and Rhythm Core Alpha 2, please visit our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/123510537671498/ .

We’ve added a new “Files” page to hold all of the files we make available to our users. These are mostly PDF versions of all of the manuals in various languages, but it also contains the contents of the press packs for those who wish to write about Rhythm Core Alpha products, something we highly encourage!

Added “Starshapes” by Terence James of Here Between You Me to the Music section!

October 10th, 2013

Terence James of Here Between You Me did the lovely demo song “Starshapes” that comes with Rhythm Core Alpha 2. I have put a MP3 version of it here for your listening pleasure:
