Modular Spam Sandwich Anyone?

If you ever ran a blog (or are running one) you’ll know how much comment spam one has to handle. We sure get a lot here. 99% of the time, spam is just what you’d expect it: Pornography. dubious, loans, online games, cheap drugs, that kind of stuff. All the more I was surprised to find this spam comment here: What you’re [...]

Moritz is one of the two guys who run Endorphin.es, but he’s also a prolific and talented musician. It’s not a rare thing to find that somebody [...]

First of all, let’s welcome our new collaborator John Loffink to Horizontalpitch. John has been updating our PSU list, merging it with one he was already maintaining, taking it to a whole new level. He didn’t just collect data from the manufacturer’s websites, he also took direct measurements himself and added a lot of specs that were previously missing. Also, thanks to John, we now have most powered cases in the list as well.

Two other projects by John worth checking out: www.microtonal-synthesis.com and www.wavemakers-synth.com

Alternate Firmwares Addendum

We’ve already seen some alternate firmwares in the article Open Modules for Open Minds Pt.3, but in the meantime I was able to discover even more. Some of them are open source, some of them aren’t and some others are even reverse-engineered attempts to extend a module’s functionality. This is a quick update, just [...]

2016

The year is about to end and we’d like to thank you for reading, commenting and sharing our articles in the past 7 months! Horizontalpitch is not even one year old (our first post is from April 2015) but it’s already been an amazing experience, though not always an easy one. As you might have noticed our posts have become a bit less frequent lately, but don’t worry, we’ll try to make up for it in 2016. We’ve got a bunch of articles already in the works and we are leaving the theoretical talk aside for a bit, to focus more on music.

This said, have a happy and musically creative 2016!

Usually what the marketing departments are trying to say with this hyperbole, is that the device will offer even more sonic [...]
