We made a first video to show what we are talking about. Audio Quality is bad, but it gives you a rough overview about what to expect. HQ audio is coming soon. As sound device we use the code from the ATMegatron from Soulsby Synthesizers.
Today, we want to tell you guys something about what we have in mind for Nerdsynth.
All in all, there’s a shitload of functionality that we want to include. We have had many great ideas, a lot of “maybe we should focus on the other stuff first”-moments and a few bits of “we reallyreallyreally need to include this in the first release”.
We drank a few beers, fired up our favourite flowcharting tool and came up with an overview of the stuff we are going to implement for the first release. Check it out.
I made a mockup of how the sequencer screen could look like:
As you can see it looks a bit like Little Sound DJ or Little Piggy Tracker. We want to use them and other trackers as examples added with some new ideas. One of our goals is also to avoid difficult key patterns for navigation or functions. So we want to use dedicated hardware buttons for the most used functions.
People asked us if we were still working on Nerdsynth. People pleaded us to “plz build thz..” or told us “u muzt make it or elz..”.
So we guessed a little heads up was long overdue. And a little heads up is exactly what you’re going to be getting today.
Anyway, here’s what we’ve been up to.
We started of with this idea of building the hardware tool that WE would be most happy with. We had a few ideas of what we were looking for during live sets of our own and decided to try and make it so.
