Isotonik Arcade

Isotonik Arcade by Mark Towers

Mark converted his Asteroids Max for Live device into a four player jambox for Leicester UK's 2015 Make Sound Festival. It offers a 4-player mini arcade cabinet housing 4 x LaunchPad Mini Controllers provided by Novation, all powered by the Isotonik Asteroids device. This is a custom version of the device that allows 4 LaunchPads to run at the same time on individual tracks. Arduino was used for the arcade buttons which also talk to the Max for Live device.

Moldover's Octamasher moves to Ottawa

Dec 14 update: an excellent article about this in Carleton Now

Composer, percussionist, artist, and educator Jesse Stewart has taken ownership of Moldover's first, one-of-a-kind jambox, The Octamasher. Jesse is an Associate Professor of music in Carleton University’s School for Studies in Art and Culture and an adjunct professor in the Visual Arts program at the University of Ottawa. He has plans to use The Octamasher at a wide variety of events, including performances and workshops created by his organization "We Are All Musicians" which is rooted in his firm belief that music is a fundamental human right and that everyone deserves to have opportunities to make music, regardless of musical training, socio-economic circumstance, and/or level of physical or intellectual ability.
