First time doing my thing out of town! Thanks Frankie, The Do Lab, King King for having me. Had no idea what to expect but I think it turned out pretty good. Still working out my layering skills and MIDI controller map. It's almost there. Still a little too much computer face and not enough rocking out. The new cart/stand setup worked out well but I ended up standing the whole time. Good thing I didn't go all night like I have been. Had to peer thru an opening in a curtain to see my output from the side of the stage, meh. The  short throw projector came thru like a champ tho!! I had it sitting on a little table next to the DJ and covered the wall behind the stage very nicely. Crispy and pretty bright. Of course I didn't take any pictures or video again. duh. I did see a few cameras floating around tho, hopefully I can get some links. I swapped Maschine for the much cheaper and smaller Korg nanoKontrol. Put it and the iPad on a laptop stand above the audio and video interfaces, next to the G55. Here is the cart setup in my lab:

I asked Myong how hard it would be to just scan this XML file and copy what its looking for into a new folder.

About 25 minutes later, including a smoke break, here we have it...

ResolumeClipCollector.zip (4.15 kb)


When you open the comp. again just point it at the one folder and it'l fix the broken links. I had media all over the place and I had to re-install windows on a new SSD. Let the computer do all the work. ;)

Myong's Lab - Heating Plate Dock for Magnetic Stirrer

I made this for Myong today... Click for the video!

 Heating plate stirrer


The stirrer is pretty cool but, it still doesn't dissolve certain things. That's where heat comes in handy. I could have just bought her the stirrer with heat built in but I didn't know then, and it was quite a bit more $$. This was made from a broken coffee maker, $12 in parts from RadioShack, and several hours of my time. With love. No harm was done to the stirrer either. It fits right into the cutouts I made in the front and back of the box almost perfectly. 

The wiring is super simple. Hot from power cord goes thru switch, thru heating element, to neutral. That's it. This is a fancy switch that has red LED when off and green LED when on, built right in. All the metal (except screws and a bracket under the heat plate) is aluminum and therefore not magnetic, so it doesn't mess with the mixer's magnetic field. It gets really F'n HOT! and fast too. Problem Solved.

NESuino: NES Controller Interface

So this is quite a complicated mess of hardware and software to accomplish quite a simple goal, but... I guess thats just how I roll ;) No, really though, it's just the only way that it would work exactly how I wanted it. Keystrokes, not joystick control.

I found Direct Pad Pro but its old discontinued software and you have to solder diodes and blah blah blah.
There are also simple premade USB adapters that can be purchased online, but again, thats joystick control.
AACKeys would have been perfect if it worked right, but I could not make that happen, so...


Here it is. Not much to look at maybe if I had more than one Arduino, I would put this in a project box or something. Yes that is a Yellow and silver NES controller. I like to customize my stuff. ;)

Click here for the rest.
