PunchKit – To Become A Downloadable Applet

appletDownload

A week or so ago I re-read the brief for the second part of the sound module to make sure I had fulfilled as much as possible in order to maximise possible marks. Obviously you don’t need to do everything listed but I thought It might help my cause if I do more than just one. Here’s the brief: [...]

PunchKit – Re-Built From Scratch

NewPunchKitUI

So I know that in this second part of the sound module we are not marked on any of technology side of things, but I have taken the time to completely rebuild the software of PunchKit in MaxMSP. This is due to a number of reasons – the main of which is that in release 1 (v177) there was a syncing issue which meant after 30 seconds or so of recording and everything had fully dropped out of sync – a major issue for a product that is meant to be a live compositional tool [...]

GroovesharkPlugin

I have recently finished my first release (v1.1) of the Grooveshark Search extension for Expression Engine. This a little something I have been developing to aid and benefit my final year project – The ISDB (Internet Soundtrack Database) – making it easy for moderators to quickly add music to new database entries.

PunchKit – Soldiering On (Mook Jong Style)

MookJong

So after my previous post and having talked to Dan about wanting to head in a new direction with PunchKit we kind of went full circle and agreed I sould solider on and continue developing it as a compositional instrument. With little time to go to the hand-in it really isn’t feasible to start something else now so I just have to work with what I’ve got and try as hard as possible to make adjustments in order to improve the sound output [...]

PunchKit: Live Composition FAIL

Punch Bag Interface

For the second part of my sound module project, ‘PunchKit’, I was hoping (and trying) to develop the concept into more of a live installation/compositional instrument where a user could layer up a complex track, using the built in overdub functionality, to create detailed musical pieces[...]

PunchKit Presentation – Done! :D

PunchKitPresentation

So I have just got back from uni where I had to present my ‘Sound Practice’ project – PunchKit! To give a quick overview of what the project is all about: “PunchKit is an innovative interactive musical instrument which allows users to compose, mix and generate music whilst physically engaging with a punch bag. Although PunchKit [...]

PunchKit – Patcher Screenshots

Patcher

So today I finished the software (MaxMSP program) for my PunchKit project. I was planning on describing how it all worked, and talking through the patches – but it was getting so complicated that I decided I would just provide screen shots of each patch and give a brief description of what each on achieves!
