LFO-One & Oliver Porath Rock Two Spectralis'


The Radkial Technology Spectralis was thought by many to be the holy grail of groove gear back when it was first announced a few years back. Unfortunately it has not totally lived up to its promise with some rather low key short comings and OS bugs since its release. The video above by LFO-One & Oliver Porath show us I think the total possibility of the Spectralis and why it still deserves to be on all of our "most wanted" lists.

Chemical Brothers Live Setup


Everyone has heard the debates about whether or not the Chemical Brothers fake it right? Well, regardless of which side of the debate you fall onto, you have to admit, they have a pretty sweet set of gear that at least sits up on stage.

Anyone care to spot out all that gear?

Aurora Open Source Control Surface Now Shipping


The open source DIY midi/DJ controlled called Aurora is now shipping in two assemble yourself kits. As I mentioned in our previous post this is an open source controlled that not only looks super functional, but looks good while doing it.

Kits come in two versions. The quick assemble kit that requires no soldering on your part runs for $340 US (Not bad IMO) and the complete soldering option runs $270.

You can purchase it over at their website

Arduinome: Arduino Based Monome Clone


Arduinome Nerdscroll Demonstration from BricK Table on Vimeo.

Wow, it has been a few weeks since the last post hasn't it. Well hopefully I will get things kicked back into gear here with some new posts.

Everyone loves the Monome right? The 64x64 grid based wonder controller that can be used on everything from sequencing to drum triggers. Will it looks like there is a great DIY project out there to clone the Monome appropriately called the Arduinome. One of the prime advantages of this new DIY approach is that it is built upon the Arduino patch board, which allows the device to have an almost unlimited expandability approach. That is not to mention that it is dirt cheap as well.

Full details on the project can be found over at their WordPress blog: Bricktable
