Re: Interested in a reprint of Allen Strange's Electronic Music?

Hi All Is there anything I can do to help? I'm guessing that with crazy things happening, everyone is getting randomized a bit. More than happy to take on a specific task (or tasks, assuming they are not too big). Really want to see this happen! Thanks for the offer! The big thing we'll need help w...

October Update... Re: Interested in a reprint of Allen Strange's Electronic Music?

Quick update. Everything's moving, just slowly. Dealing with legal issues, and preparing to get image and drawing and photo permissions, or retake photos of things in the old book that we can't get permission for. And we had trouble with the scanning, due to covid shutting down necessary resources. ...

I voted „under $50“, but a PDF would be fine, too! Awesome! A keenly-priced early bird dead tree edition with a PDF for searchability as part of the deal would make sense in This Moden Age tm . Agreed. There will be hardcover, softcover and PDF, as far as I can tell at this point, with discounts fo...

Re: Interested in a reprint of Allen Strange's Electronic Music?

A bit of context-- Wells was at the time writing his own book (Wells and Vogel; The Technique of Electronic Music; Sterling Swift;1974) which came out in 1974. Of all of the EM books I have seen over the years, I would rate that one technical accuracy-- 10, inspiration-- 0. Allen's book of course p...

Thought this might be interesting. Found a few reviews from the era of Strange's very wonderful book. Here's the most comprehensive, it's not exactly looking at the material in the right way but a great time capsule, particularly for how turbulent academic review of new ideas can appear to be.

We're compiling a list of people who might have known Allen Strange or who were significantly influenced by his work, and who might be known to the electronic music community, who we might ask for a short blurb for the project.

I would love a copy of this. I voted for a print copy under $100. I do have an old 1st edition copy (signed by AS) but it is so beat up that I would like to retire it. Wonderful. We're looking at WELL under $100, even for a hard cover. Will be doing it via kickstarter, as soon as we get some more p...

You've selected N-8 (Clockable SD Ping Pong) and the animation is it wiping the delay file.
Got it. N has 3 dots and M has 2 dots, in the middle. How come I have settings from N1-8 inclusive, and then 01 and on to P8? Am I lucky or self-deluding? I swear i see them though, on both. Cheers.

disting mk4 4.16 issue?

After updating the firmware I have a weird problem. Boot without SD card, NO problem. Boot with SD card in... well, watch the video. I tried this with both my distings, and 3 different SD cards. I reformatted the SD cards (fat-32/MBR). Any idea what's going on? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3akr1...

Re: Interested in a reprint of Allen Strange's Electronic Music?

Some small insight into your achieving this aim would be a good preface. After all, the body of work itself needs no introduction. I disagree. Strange's book may need no introduction to this audience, but prior to getting into modular synthesis around 10 years ago, I knew nothing about the man or h...

Either.
I'm too literal. When it comes to grammar. Same way some folks worry about coding. Using an indefinite article versus definite article is like defining something linear versus log. Lucky I can't code. :)

Thanks for confirming it though. Everything updated properly. Cheers! :yay:

Re: disting mk4 firmware announcement thread

You need to upgrade the bootloader. The big red section on the firmware update page. Instructions are slightly confusing though. It says: Unzip to get the 'image.hex' file, and copy it to a MicroSD card. Unzip to get the 'disting4.bin' file, and copy it to a MicroSD card. Do you put them both on th...

Hi I have 2 Mk4, and 2 SD cards formatted fat-32, MBR partitioned. With disting4.bin copied to both cards. I've tried each card in both Mk4 and got a no firmware message. Held down S encoder while powering on. Am upgrading from 4.14. I'm stumped as I've done this many times before without problems. ...

Re: Midi player

The disting mk4 algorithms J1 (MIDI file playback - clocked) and J3 (MIDI file playback - free running) will do that. Just don't expect it to actually work. Folks who can get the J1 and J3 settings to work can't explain it in a way that others who cannot get it to work can replicate. Lack of replic...
