Mae not helping with the OpSix

The OpSix is a reimagining of the classic Yamaha six-operator FM synthesizers of the 1980s. It expands on the original voice architecture with additional algorithms, and most significantly adds real-time surface controls and displays for each of the operators. It also includes filters and effects, something that was not part of the original DX series. It is definitely an interesting instrument if you want to check out classic DX-style FM synthesis.

It’s always a treat to come across other black cats named Luna. Our little girl would be proud.

CatSynth Pic: Mae and Sonic Pi

Mae returns to the pages of CatSynth. This time she is reviewing code in Sonic Pi, a popular live-coding music system.

Submitted by Alessandro Cilano via our Facebook page.

I have never used Sonic Pi myself, but I am now curious to take a look at it given that it combines my interest in programming languages and electronic music.
