AlphaLive has now been featured on the front page of the JUCE website. JUCE is the programming library behind AlphaLive and it’s fair to say that the AlphaSphere and its software would not be the same without this great library.
Today was a pinnacle moment in my career. Today we shipped the first order of AlphaSphere’s, a product I have been co designing and developing for the past 2 years of my life. And now people all across the world, from Knighton to Tokyo to Chicago, will get their hands on it, and I’m excited to see what they do with it! To the next step…
So it occurred to me the other night it has been a couple of months since I’ve posted anything substantial. This hasn’t been because I’m lazy… its because I’ve been busy. VERY busy. And this is why - ‘AlphaLive’; the first stable version of the AlphaSphere software:
In a nutshell, this constantly evolving piece of software is all you need to program the ‘Sphere into the perfect live electronic musical instrument. It’s miles ahead of its preceding Max/MSP application and it is being updated and improved every week. Exciting stuff.
But that’s only a small part of news from the AlphaSphere camp. I’m not going to bore you with paragraphs so here’s a word montage of what’s been happening recently:
Extended Play Festival, Venture Fest, Tech World, Vision Conference, Mozilla Festival, Rhythmix, Taiwanese TV, iNets, numerous local performances, opera compositions, iPhone app from 2nd year Bristol University students, respected VJ collaborations, music tech university lectures, Mercury Award-winning artists, Canadian Discovery Channel Filming, new prototype in production, and exciting pre-launch performance plans. I may have missed something…
But until next time, Happy Holidays!
