Playing Some Music

Reading time: 1 minutes.

I got a new toy for my birthday this year, and have been spending a little time getting to know how it works.

Shuffling on the Kaossilator from Brian Hogan on Vimeo.

The Korg Kaossilator is a really simple device with only a few buttons and a touchpad. It’s a blast to play with and easy enough that anyone can make some cool stuff with it.

This was actually me testing out some video equipment in preparation for a podcast i am planning to do, but my external camera won’t stay on unless I am actually recording something – using it as a firewire camera doesn’t work for more than 5 minutes at a time. I need to get something else to mount over my desk. If anyone has any ideas, let me know. I plan to capture the camera and the computer screen at the same time for this podcast, as I’ll be showing how to compose music with Reason, and I want to give my viewers the chance to see the MIDI controller and keyboard during the screencast.
