Hello all,

We have two exciting pieces of news to share from the Luminth project.

The PCBs have arrived. We are currently uploading the firmware to the boards and testing them out with Luminth Orbiter.

We have received the final production prototypes for the Luminth enclosures, and have placed the bulk order for the acrylic parts.  Our good friends at Griffen Hollow Studio produced the NTH Music Synthesizer enclosures, and will be manufacturing the enclosures for the Luminth as well.

Luminth Generative Music System Now on Kickstarter!

The Luminth Generative Music System is available for purchase on Kickstarter.com from now until June 13, 2013.

Luminth

Click, turn, push+turn. Use the Luminth to generate melodies, percussive grooves, and ambient soundscapes. Make dramatic changes to the music with a single click. Dive deeper to make refined, subtle adjustments. Or let the software work autonomously to create music that morphs over time.

Luminth Orbiter can be used to:

  • Generate new melodic and rhythmic ideas
  • Play relaxing music at the end of a long day
  • Create ambient sounds for a space or gathering
