Rhythm Core Alpha 2 at LA County Science Fair Interactive Exhibits this Friday, March 27th 10am-5pm!

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

We’ll be demoing Rhythm Core Alpha 2 at the LA County Science Fair’s Interactive Exhibits at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena California this Friday, March 27th, from 10am to 5pm.
Besides there being an awesome science fair and maker show with lots of exhibits, we’ll be running folks through the basics on how to make your own song, and even getting into some of the more advanced features if the audience can take it. It should be awesome fun!

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 will be at Rockage 3.0 in San Jose, February 7-9!

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

We just talked with Eric Fanali from the Rockage event in San Jose and have confirmed that they have a place for us to demo Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and even to sneak in a Timon Marmex performance or two between the bands.

This is very exciting for us! Long ago we did live in the SF bay area for about a year and it always holds a special place in our heart. We know so many awesome chiptune artists up in the bay area and have been honored to share the stage with Slime Girls and Crashfaster as well as many others, so being able to play up there is a big deal for us!

So, San Francisco Bay Area folks be sure to check us out at Rockage 3.0!

 

 

Rhythm Core Alpha “Make Chiptunes” standee

Tuesday, 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!

Pillaging loops for sounds

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

So, we are up to 16 beats, and 74 loops of music for you to make your own songs with, and 13 demo songs. I’m now pillaging the loops and songs for extra sound definitions to add to the library… even without adding extra samples you can make a lot of different sounds just by adjusting the parameters.
