I recorded a new song using my mininova and my midified korg monotron. I used Ardour 3 to record the track. Some parts have been recorded using my pushified launchpad mini with the help of pure data
I wrote a pure-data patch that allows me to use my launchpad mini to play my synthesizers. The scales use a similar layout to ableton push (hence the name pushy). To translate between the default midi mapping and the push layout I first used a div and a mod operation to find out what row and column a pressed button was in. Then I calculate the offset for each row to implement the quater shift everytime you go up one row. Then I use a puredata table that holds the scale to be played (currently major and minor) to create the midi-number. The base tone can be shifted up and down by 12 semitones using the E and F button or by 1 semitone using the C and D buttons.
To connect it to my midi equipment I use jack on my linux box and wire it to my synths using qjackctl.

I also recorded a short loop using the launchpad and my mininova
I made another animation that uses the blender dynamic paint system. This time I used several dynamic paint canvases on the same plane to trigger a displacement, and mask a texture that changes the normals of my material.
The sounds are generated using puredata.
the hardest part in using osc with pd was getting a pd-version that supports osc. the deb packages for pd-extended don't work on unbuntu 8.10.
