      @raytrace: are you pinging your router or a WAN address? WIFI should be plenty fast. Anything less than a milisecond I know I can't detect.

      Really cool stuff guys, this should be a weekly thing, talk to some gear companies about ads and you're on a roll ;)

      @rumpelfilter: We'll cover all kinds of things, but just as clarification ... the MeeBlip was in development prior to the Shruthi-1, and was not inspired by the Shruthi. The original project that inspired both was the AVRSynth, though the MeeBlip has evolved quite a lot from that. I said neither first nor only, but what is unique about the MeeBlip is that it's open source hardware; Shruthi-1 is not. That's really the new idea, in that there haven't been digital synths set up for hacking in that way, at least not cheap and open ones.

      Here's hopeing for more of the same. Been on the prowel for this kind of podcast for ages and have only found stuff that is too arty or too techy and not verry practical!! I totally dig the fact that you can follow the content while doing other stuff, I have a two year old child and great podcasts like this are a godsend. Would have been good to hear what the MeeBlip sounds like on the show, but I suppose that their are plenty of examples on the web.... keep up the good work chaps.

      @tekkaz: Thanks for listening. Yes we need little demo clips of audio of what we are talking about for sure!

      @tekkaz: this podcats business is cool - strangely enough being into music i like to listen to stuff! so this is good :) maybe a few quick audio demos of what ya are talking about - but no long musical interludes i think..

      meblip sounds cool - didnt realise it was so cheap... i'm gettin the urge to buy somethin with knobs that actually makes NOISE... not another midi controller..

      great stuff lads - honestly its the first time I've listened all the way through a podcast :D - I met you at DEAF in 2008 Peter - cool lecture it was (the one with Gavin from FAW)

      i thought wireless was always bandwidth based not really low ping - so it couldnt get near the low lag/latency of cables

    • raytrace

      yeh I do tend to think of it like a hardware rack on its own or something - and the expectation of Reason's eventual arrival was the main reason (!) i got my iPad -

      surely MIDI Wi-Fi will be a bit iffy at best - its gotta be fairly laggy ? wireless pings are terrible (well they were last time I checked)

      so Symbion Project has 2 songs in RBN, and my other band Larkspur and Universal Hall Pass also have songs there... all 4 are synth electronic songs! so there's def some great stuff on RBN!

      great podcast! A CDM podcast really was about time! :) And you're right, they have a great advantage, you can listen to them while working or doing other stuff...
      Just one thing I wanted to say: from what you say it seems like the MeeBlip is the first and only synth of its kind, and you failed to mentioned the other great device in this category: the Shruthi-1 (which might even have given you some inspiration for the Meeblip, at least I have it seen featured on CMD some time ago). This doesn't want to be MeeBlip-bashing, all the contrary, I think it's a really interesting device and I am really considering to buy one, but I felt the need to clarify on this, since the Shruthi-1 is also a great device and doesn't get all the attention it deserves.
