Friction Drum - Lončeni Bas

MusicTechFest – Friction Drum


On Saturday Karmen and Miha presented the electric version of the Friction Drum instrument (a folk instrument well known in Slovenija, as well as other parts of the world) at Music Tech Fest in Ljubljana. The presentation was awesome, as well as the demo of them playing. I managed to make a few pics with my mobile phone (thus, the quality) and a…

MusicTechFest – Compositional hierarchical model


Today, Manca, Luka and I presented the Compositional hierarchical model at the Music of Science session at Music Tech Fest in Ljubljana. As a part of his undergraduate degree, Luka built an awesome transcription editor which uses the CHM as classifier. It will probably never reach version 1.0 since the “ideas” stack grows exponentially. However, we are planning on providing a freeware…

Android summer school 2015


It’s the sixth time in a row this year – and it was great! with 22 elementary school students, we created 11 different AppInventor projects. And as every year so far, the first three groups got special prizes from SiMobil! Here are some screenshots (literally screenshots of the screen) of this year’s projects. For more hi-res images of the FRI Summer school…

Crumar – we’re almost there!


Z Dejanom sva uspela identificirati še zadnji problem nedelovanja in šumenja orgel. Tokrat je bil problem v slabih kontaktih na ploščici, kjer se nahaja oscilator, kar je posledično vplivalo na več ali manj ves output. Najin zadnji podvig bo reševanje ene in edine nedelujoče tipke. Sama tipka niti ne moti, če je bas del vklopljen (v tem primeru se zvok…

Crumar Organiser, nadaljevanje popravila


Z Dejanom sva ta teden nadaljevala s popravilom. Glavni problemi so bili z napajanjem, ker je stvar bila po domače popravljena. Par žic se je dotikalo, nekateri elementi so bili nepovezani … Element 7815 (napetostni regulator +15V – spodnji od obeh elementov na hladilniku) je imel feature delovanja brez srednjega (ground) pina.   Včeraj sva pričela z menjavo kondenzatorjev na bass sekciji…

Orgle – Pa jih imam


Po krajšem brskanju po bolhi sem našel Crumar T1 organiser. Zadeva je v precej slabem stanju – potrebno bo nadgradit napajalni del (tukaj je nekdo že nekaj čaral glede na iskrine komponente), prav tako hecajo določeni registri v kombinaciji s tipkami. Bas del bo potrebno v celoti pregledat, ker je nedelujoč. Ampak je pa prvi Hammond klon, ki ga imam 🙂 Še…
