A long time ago, in a lab far, far, away… … in Leith, we used to have a regular music and audio night and we’d like to start that off again. Our plan is to use the existing open night on the first Thursday of every month as a Music/Audio themed evening. The first evening[…]
Gareth writes: I’ve wanted a Guitar-to-MIDI converter (a.k.a. a guitar synth) for yonks. In particular, I’ve been looking for an Axon AX 100 unit; they were renowned for the speed and accuracy of the tracking that the proprietary neural network software could achieve. Unfortunately the AX 100 has been out of production for years, and used units are commanding prices in the high hundreds of pounds. However, I recently found a reasonably priced spares-or-repair unit on eBay, so I picked it up.
Thanks to the kind donations of lots of lovely people, the lab has just taken delivery of a brand new Ultimaker 2 3D printer. It has been set up, and is working well. Thanks again to everyone for the pledges.
On Saturday we had a visit from around a dozen members of The Software Society of Dundee, who are currently pondering upon setting up their own space. Ted, Gareth and Gandolf showed them round and talked a little about what we went through in setting up the lab. We’re planning an away team trip to[…]
Yes, it’s that time of year when the Hacklab and tedium intersect in the Venn diagram region of the Annual General Meeting. The Open Night will therefore be slightly later than usual. Members, be here at 7pm sharp. Visitors and guests, we plan to have the doors open to you at 9pm.
This Friday, 18th May, is our monthly music night, starting from around 8pm in the lab. Come along to talk about music, hacking, and make some noise! The month before last I wasn’t there, and I missed out on Andrew and Tom’s resistive fabric synth, and James and Matt of Madlab making instruments out of[…]
As we approach the first birthday of Edinburgh Hacklab, it’s becoming clear that we’ve reached the limits of the space we’re currently occupying in Out Of The Blue. So it’s time for the Hacklab to take the next step – we’re looking for a new space. Broadly speaking, we’re looking for a minimum of 500[…]
Made good progress on the speaker cabinet at the Hacklab last night, ably assisted by @tinyblob. Unfortunately, the screws I bought for the back panel are a few mm too short so I need to do some shopping. Getting close now, though. I still need to chisel out pockets for handles on the accompanying 4U[…]
