- Let's meet at Superbooth 2019
If you are into synth geek'ism, you might be interested in going to Superbooth 2019 at FEZ. Some of us will be there too, doing a booth to present our mobile Apps. If you wanna meet us, come by at our Musik App Manufaktur booth: https://www.superbooth.com/de/hallenplan.html?location=h368 We might close down this Meetup group, as we did not meet that often recently and Meetup is asking for a small fee (fair enough). So, if you are on Facebook, consider to follow us via our "Making Apps that Make Music" group also: https://www.facebook.com/groups/271117483063480/
- Fête de la Musique coming together
During Fete de la Musique (June 21st), we want to open our caves in Gryphiusstrasse Berlin, to make some noise and have another "Making Apps That Make Music" meetup finally. It's without any topic this time, rather about meeting and making music with our tools. Some PureData experts will come, so if you are into PD you definitely might be interested.
- JUCE meet up in Berlin
We will host a JUCE meetup at our Gryphiussalon, here is the description from the JUCE meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/JUCE-Meetup/events/234443718/ "About a year ago, we hosted a meetup in Berlin to meet C++ developers. We've learnt a lot from the meetup and are ready to do it again. Stefan and Fabian from the JUCE team will be there to meet some JUCE users, answer any questions and/or just hang out. So bring your favourite JUCE pet projects! Thanks to Oli from the MakingAppThatMakeMusic for hosting us!" --- JUCE is about developing powerful, cross-platform audio, interactive, embedded or graphic applications: https://www.juce.com/discover
- Show your new stuff and lets get prepared for Superbooth
Our last meetup was in December already, so it's about time! Some of us have some new projects, they might want to show and ask for feedback. And some of us have to prepare for Superbooth, which will happen 2 days later. So let's meet and chat and make some sound! We want to do the meetup in a new locations this time, at our Gryphiussalon in Friedrichshain https://www.superbooth.com/de/ https://www.google.de/maps/place/Gryphiusstraße+23,+10245+Berlin/@[masked],[masked],17z/data=!4m7!1m4!3m3!1s0x47a84ef5fd796cc1:0x74f241c62c356eb7!2sGryphiusstraße+23,+10245+Berlin!3b1!3m1!1s0x47a84ef...
- Holiday celebration and Ableton Link meet-up
Mobile music developers, come help us close out this year of meetups with a special party/gathering. Share what you're working on, meet fellow developers making tools for making music, and raise a toast to this year. We also welcome as a featured guest Ableton Link, a technology for keeping music in time wirelessly. Members of the team behind Link will be on hand to give a preview of what the SDK can do for mobile apps, and to answer questions. We'll also have some apps from our own group that are already using Link - so expect an impromptu wireless jam session to close out the night. We have a special venue for this installment - Jää-äär (which means "edge of the ice" in Estonian). It's a cafe at Brunnenstr 56, near U-Bhf Bernauer Str. You'll find drinks of both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety. See you there! - Oliver & Peter + CDM (http://createdigitalmusic.com) More information about Ableton Link: https://www.ableton.com/de/link/ The notorious 3 devices in sync video: https://youtu.be/wu5V-Upnfjc
- JUCE and libPD - the perfect audio development combination?
Open source cross platform engine JUCE (http://www.juce.com) seems to be the Swiss army knife of audio, not only for big companies, but also for many indie developers. PureData/libPD (https://puredata.info, http://libpd.cc ), another open source platform is widely used too, very often from developers with a musical or art background. While JUCE is based on C++, libPD looks like a backdoor entrance to use this engine with a minimized amount of needed coding skills. Lets have a look into a JUCE project, that works with libPD as audio engine, we were able to create with the help from the people of JUCE. If you already want to have a look at our demo project, it's available here: https://github.com/logsol/JuceLibPd Also Fabian from JUCE/Roli London will join the meetup, to help us with his knowledge ... awesome !!! We will meet in the 3rd floor again
- SyncJams (sync PureData apps) & POF (PureData & OpenFrameworks)
Synced Up: A Conversation with Matt Black (NinjaTune, Coldcut) New, open mobile tools for making music together A special edition of Making Apps that Make Music ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/271117483063480/ ), hosted with CDM (createdigitalmusic.com (http://createdigitalmusic.com/)) in conjunction with MIDI Hack Mobile software is great, but what if it could be more than a solo act? New tools suggest new possibilities for collaboration, playing together and syncing up, connecting with others, and allowing more artists and coders to invent new ideas quickly. Matt Black, co-founder of the label NinjaTune and music duo Coldcut, has throughout his career pushed the envelope of how software can be an expressive live instrument, in visuals and sound. That included audiovisual tracks and ground-breaking work in VJing and some of the first VJ and A/V software. Now, we get a chance to sit down with Matt informally to look together at what's next. In the spirit of MIDI Hack, Matt's in town with in-development tools for coders - SyncJams and PureDataOpenFrameworks. SyncJams lets musicians groove together: you can connect over a network with zero configuration, then play together to a shared metronome, collaborate, and jam. PureDataOpenFrameworks lets software makers groove together: creative coders and patchers can work together to rapidly realize their designs for iOS and Android. Matt will show us these new tools, and we'll talk to him about how they can be used - plus the big picture for how mobile software could be made better for labels, artists, and developers. Join us for a presentation, Q&A, and informal networking and chatter over drinks. Coders and newcomers welcome alike - there's plenty here for everyone. 19:00 Doors 19:30 Start 20:30 Look at code, network, and chat - POF: https://github.com/Ant1r/ofxPof POF = Pd + OpenFrameworks : openFrameworks externals for Pure Data, providing openGL mutlithreaded rendering and advanced multitouch events management. - SyncJams: https://github.com/chr15m/SyncJams Zero-configuration network-synchronised metronome and state dictionary for music applications.
- Performance, performance, performance !!
http://www.objc.io/issue-2/ Many music apps are very performance hungry. Therefore we thought it's a good idea to make a meetup around this topic. Like the benefits of GCD, C vs. Objective-C, using Instruments to improve things in your app. This meetup is focused on the iOS platform at first, but it might be still helpful/inspiring for other platforms The idea was to split the event in two blocks: 1) more basic and more general: how can you improve the performance of an iOS app with Objective-C's on-boards: Xcode debug tools, Instruments, GCD, NSOperation, Concurrent programming Florian & Chris from obj.io will talk about general performance/concurrency topics. Have a look here already: http://www.objc.io/issue-2/ 2) more advanced/specialized music app related: do things with C instead of Objective-C?, vDSP/Acceleration Framework: The guys from touch-able.com will talk about this - German working title: Parallelisierung & Vektorisierung von DSP-Algorithmen am Beispiel der additiven Synthese
- Show your apps that make music
After a longer break we will meet again at our CoUp home base. Some of our meetup members have released new apps or huge updates and may present them: - WretchUp by Peter Kirn & Oliver Greschke - Elastic Drums by Oliver Greschke - Moers Modular by Sven Braun - TouchAble 3 by Christian Blomert - Modstep by Christian Blomert & Benjamin Weiss - ... your app ... Let's join, chat and play together Also on Facebook if you want to invite friends that way: https://www.facebook.com/events/775768272500598/
- Lemur, Hack Show'nTell Special
We're back to school. And we're back from two hack events - the ADE Spatial Sound Lab and Music Tech Fest Berlin. So, for fans of making music on mobile tools, and fans of making tools for making music, it's time for a special edition of our (mostly) monthly meetup. Special in this edition: // CUSTOM CONTROL LAYOUTS FOR MUSIC ON iOS Producer, techno researcher, and Liine (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Liine/145991702077602) co-founder Nicolas Bougaïeff (https://www.facebook.com/nicolasbougaieff) is our special guest to show us the deeper powers of Lemur, the indispensable controller app for iOS. In particular, he's getting us into the deep mysteries of the Canvas - a new object that lets you create any controller for Lemur you can imagine, familiar to those who do Web coding // SHOW AND TELL + DISCUSSION Karl was a winner of last weekend's Music Tech Fest (https://www.facebook.com/MusicTechFest) edition in Berlin. He's showing us the gear he was working on - and a cool new hardware platform he won in the 24-hour hackathon: http://axoloti.be/ // PLAYGROUND With all those apps, let's get playing over beers. Meet and greet and connect via OSC and make some sounds. (We're bringing a couple of Bluetooth wireless speakers this time to make that louder.) Bring stuff that fits on bicycles and makes sound - iPad or MIDI-ready gizmo or whatever!
