Getting Organized in Spectrasonics’ Stylus RMX

Getting Organized in Spectrasonics’ Stylus RMX @Spectrasonics, @ericpersing: Your tools are worth every single euro!

stylusrmx-11

Stylus RMX by Spectrasonics is not only the coolest tool ever but brings a lot of cool sounds, too. And when I say a lot, I actually mean “A BIG F*** LOT!!!” (and I don’t use exclamation marks that often not to mention three of them). I just want to make clear, that there are many sounds, beats, kits included.

Which brings up the question, how to organize the stuff to your liking. I just want to…

I made this list for myself a year ago when I was feeling frustrated and unmotivated (that first East Coast Winter is a doozy) and taped it to my studio wall. Yesterday it ended up on Boing Boing!
I find it very helpful to make up rules for myself, even if I end up ignoring half of them (I haven’t really turned the internet off since 1998). No list can be one size fits all, so here’s my one bit of prescriptive advice: Make your own list, custom-tailored to what you do and how you work!
And as for other things like this on the internet (there are lots), I highly, highly recommend:
- Frank Chimero’s Advice for Graphic Design Students
- Keri Smith’s “Secrets Shared”
- Austin Kleon’s “How to Steal Like an Artist”

Here are some highlights from the semi-random output from a new polygon-based drawing thing I was hacking on this afternoon.

xoxco:

This weekend, I worked on a new code experiment - a multi-touch enabled semi-random polygon drawing tool. It creates polygon shapes that look sort of like endlessly unfolding paper. You can draw with your mouse or fingers, or you can have it draw randomly.
The original concept was to create a toy for my 6 month old daughter Zelda that would make cool looking shapes based on her spastic slapping of the iPad screen. Goal achieved!
Every time you add a new point to the drawing - by clicking, dragging, or tapping with a finger - the algorithm creates a new polygon by connecting your new point to 2 or more existing nearby points. This is how I achieved the folding paper effect.
When put into auto-draw mode, I add a tiny bit of wiggle to each point as the polygons are drawing, which lends a sort of frantic liveliness to the image as it is created.
Try it in your browser, or put it on your iPhone or iPad: It will create colorful, full screen images! You can save cool results as transparent PNG files, as seen above.

I love this Riff …

I love this Riff …

… and the dynamics in this song, especially played live by excellent musicians.

One of the big questions concerning guitar players is “Who’s better? Satriani or Santana?”. Well, this problem ist easily solved.
