Handmade Music NYC is returning. And we’re thrilled to welcome Modal Kombat, the real-guitars-play-games act that had to cancel back in August!
THE OPEN LABORATORY, 4:30pm – FREE
A hack-a-thon / workshop for using game controllers for music. Learn how to connect game controllers as musical controllers. Bring controllers you want to use (class-compliant USB, Wii, and Xbox controllers recommended) and try them out with music software, plus get a look at how you can turn the new Rock Band 3 keyboard controller into a cheap keyboard controller. (Not endorsed by Harmonix! We just
think it’s cute…)
THE PARTY, 7pm – FREE
- MEEBLIP’S PUBLIC DEBUT – Get your hands on the MeeBlip, the new open source synth we unveiled this week, in person. Ask questions, make noises.
