Portable Binaural Rig

Another Model? Since I started designing binaural microphones and dummy heads, one of the main issues I’ve had were related to size and portability. The second obvious issue is that using any kind of binaural head, draws a lot of attention from all kind of human beings which ask stupid questions like what TV are you from, not realizing that they just destroyed your field recording… It also makes react to

Binaural Dummy Head – Pro V3

Pro V3 After long time of great results using my V1 and V2 binaural mics, some Sound Engineer friends asked me, why don´t you add phantom power to your Binaural Microphone? My answer was allways quick… At the begining I didnt intented this microphone for studio use, but rather making a portable device which I could take anywhere and get Binaural sound without dedicated sound recorders, using the input of my video or

Circuit bending workshop by Maledictis

Circuit bending guide

What is Circuit Bending Circuit bending is the creative customization of the circuits within electronic devices such as low voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children’s toys and digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators. Emphasizing spontaneity and randomness, the techniques of circuit bending have been commonly associated with noise music, though many more con

Ultrasonic – MIDI Controller – ETHERUS

ETHERUS is my ultimate MIDI performance music controller based around arduino. It´s a dream come true after years of try an error and I am happy to explain you here some of its history. Put your hands in the air: Since I started digging in to DIY, my very first project was a simple Theremin. I´ve been always fascinated by the fact that was one of the first synthesizers, created by Leon Theremin a visionary which was

Arduino DIY MIDI Shield

A bit of CNC Workaround: This is one of the first successful tests I made using my CNC. A simple Arduino MIDI shield to use in my projects using just 4 wires, GND and voltage plus Serial Rx and Tx. At first most of the tedious work was to get my head around the workflow. First, you need to have a good understanding of Eagle Cad software,  how to use the components and width of the traces to get a proper CNC work. It

Roland TR 505 GT

Circuit bending TR 505 GT This is a modified Roland TR-505. An Extreme and versatile circuit bending project. I did this mod back in 2005 in my obsession to find a “controllable” circuit bending device. Midi was my way to go as it would allow more “in time” control from a sequencer… all my noise making devices were a bit useful or lets say better “too random” when used live&#

DIY Binaural Dummy Head – Prototype v1

What is Binaural Recording: Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener. This effect is often created using a technique known as “Dummy head recording“, wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate pr
