Recently I picked up a used Roland TR-626 from ebay. I finally got around to sampling beeps and buzzes that this guy makes. Here is a sound library of all the sounds this drum machine makes. Each sounds has 15 different pitch levels that I label -7 to +7, 0 being the original sample. All the samples were recorded into Pro Tools at 44.1/16 bit. Also I circuit bend the hell out of this thing, so expect future posts with pictures and samples of it glitched out.
Here is an update to my Random7 program that allows control and feedback with the Novation Launchpad. For everyone new to Random7 a short description is Random7 is a generative music application that randomly picks midi notes and velocities in a scale you choose. For more information about Random7 here is a link to older posts about this application and some music made by Random7. Below is a picture diagram of the different controls on the Launchpad, click on the picture to get a closer view.
Here is a quick video demonstrating the Launchpad control of Random7.
This is my build of Stretta’s monome software Fourths for the Novation Launchpad. A pretty simple program for sending midi note information to your favorite DAW’s and synths. Here is a video of Stretta demonstrating Fourths on the monome.
This build was a special request. Here is Press Cafe running with nonome on the Novation Launchpad for Windows. Once again much respect goes out to Stretta for all his great monome patches. I did this build really quickly so I did not have a lot of time to play around with Press Cafe. More information on Press Cafe can be found at Stretta’s site here. Once I have more time to play around with this patch I will get a video up of it running. Big ups to Chris in Illinois for the request, and if anyone else wants to see a special build let me know – email@example.com. Please be patient as I a currently busy with studio production work and end of the year gigs.

I whipped up a quick little max msp app for chord recognition tailored for the launchpad. I used a few objects from Little Scale’s launchpad patches. I would love to hear any feed back or wishes for improvements. I will be updating this frequently so watch for updates. Major revisions will get a new build number. Windows version coming soon hope you enjoy it. Here’s a quick demo of me using it and the download link.
I was asked to do a step by step guide for this program so here’s how i get it to work. I don’t take midi information from the chords program, it is only there to light up the launchpad. You should be using other software for your synths and piano sounds like abelton.
1. Plug in launch pad
2. Start up Chords
3. On the top of the screen you will see an input and output. IF the program recognized that you had a launchpad plugged into your computer you should be able to set the input and output to “Launchpad”
3. Enable the buttons… you wont see any lights on the pad until you’ve presses a button once.. what you need to do is press all the buttons that you will be using.. just pressing the buttons on the on the top two square rows enables all of the chords lights.
4. If you don’t see lights restart at step one. you must plug in the launch pad before launching the chords program, and you should listening to midi from the “launchpad” in your synth program.
