Somebody was asking about our fabulous 3D printed microphone stand mount we use in our live videos. Well, we’ve made it available now via Shapeways! We don’t know if anybody will actually buy it because it is super expensive to order through them, but it is available! We even did a new version for the Nintendo 2DS too!

There are lots of events going on in the world of Rhythm Core Alpha 2!
I’ll be demoing “Rhythm Core Alpha 2″ in the Make Room at Loscon 40 this Friday-Sunday November 29th – December 1st, with performances at 1pm on Saturday, and probably in the Crosstime Saloon variety show on Friday from 9-10pm.
December 4th, I have just confirmed I am performing (as Timon Marmex) in a late show (I probably go on after 11pm) at the Blacklight District Lounge in Long Beach. Free Show, ages 21 and over, 5 bands, doors open at 8pm.
Then, December 7th, I am demoing RCA2 again at the San Diego Mini Maker Faire in San Diego.
So now you have more opportunities than ever to see Rhythm Core Alpha 2 in action!
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!
Folks on YouTube have been asking for a manual they can download and print, so we took what we had and made a PDF. You can get it here:
This is based on a draft version and doesn’t include edits that were made later to the version included in the product, so please refer to the internal version of the manual if there are any inconsistencies or errors.
Right now we are very busy, but remind us and we will try to get the other languages manuals up as well!
We are pleased to announce that the European version of Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ has passed all Nintendo testing and is due to be released in those territories on August 15th. That includes the UK, all of Europe, and Australia!
We are very excited to finally release in Europe and Australia! We can’t wait to hear what kind of music you can make!
Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ will be available as a download for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi game systems in the Nintendo eShop or Nintendo DSiWare store. The price in Europe will be 10 euros, or 1000 Nintendo Points.
Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most full-featured music sequencer / solo instrument available for Nintendo game platforms, designed for creating and playing music live. It includes a traditional drum grid and piano-roll style sequencer, a solo mode with 10 different variations for playing instruments live, a drum screen for playing drums, a mixer screen for controlling levels, and a pattern mode for arranging loops and chord changes to form complete songs.
It contains many synthesis capabilities like ADSR envelopes for volume and pitch, a powerful vibrato/arpeggio feature, and per-track echo.
The buttons can be redefined to change the key and scale of your sequences, and/or jump to different loops or different sections of the pattern (song), a feature that is unique among music software programs on any platform.
There is a full set of editing features for copying notes and beats that is not available in any other Nintendo music tool.
For these reasons, we believe that Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most powerful music program on any game platform, and the most compelling program for the creation of live music.
Hey, we got a great review on Destructoid! http://goo.gl/sCWrE
We are finally starting to contact websites and media about the release of Rhythm Core Alpha 2, something that should have been done awhile ago. We have had the press release and press pack up on the front page for some time now, but are only now getting around to tracking down each website and sending them the good news! Do you know some good places to send press releases about Nintendo software or music creation software? Let us know!

What a day! I sent an e-mail to Nintendo asking for a few details on what video format to send the video in, but got impatient and sent it as-is. Nintendo’s site required me to download some funky uploader tool, but that wasn’t immediately apparent and so there was some difficulty. Eventually I got it working, but because of the giant file size the think aborted. By then, Nintendo wrote me back with the video format details and I was able to resend the file in the correct format.
Then I got a note from Lotcheck saying that the version I sent them was not the latest version! It turns out that loading the submission data from XML resets to the old file as well! Oops! So I cranked out a new submission packet with the correct stuff (double checked!) and sent that with profuse apologies.
Now I’ve got a splitting headache, but at least I am through with submission worries for a few days, anyway.
