Synthetic Sound Labs - Model 1440: Radio Music
Radio Music is a virtual radio / sample player module, that behaves a bit like a radio. A digital way to simulate the radio-powered compositions of John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen as well as Don Buchla’s voltage-controlled radio experiments. Play audio from an SD card to simulate a voltage controlled AM/FM/Shortwave/Time Travel radio.
Tune to the “stations” using the front panel control or the CV input jack. Each station is simply an audio file stored in a folder on a micro SD card. Select from up to 16 “banks” of stations by pressing and holding the RESET button. Depending on the SETTINGS.TXT file on the SD card, the ADJUST knob and ADJUST CV inputs allow pitch shifting up and down, which is quantized to equal tempered scale.
The audio streams from the SD card and can handle long files easily. In the default setting, it switches between long recordings just as if they were radio stations — as if the audio was playing in the background. One 32 GB micro SD card can store about four-and-a-half days of .WAV format audio.
Includes: One 8 GB SanDisk Edge micro SD pre-loaded with several samples, and free SD adapter.
