Ponoko Enclosure, Firmware How-To, 2 NTHs Jamming
We’d like share some of what we’re doing as we enter the final week of the Kickstarter campaign.
For those who will be building their own NTH enclosures, we have started to experiment with some online panel fabrication services. Yesterday we ordered panels for an NTH enclosure from Ponoko. We are also going to try Big Blue Saw. Once we evaluate the results, we’ll share images and advice.
We have published the NTH firmware update how-to. The process of updating the NTH’s firmware takes less than a minute. We hope that NTH hackers will publish firmware modifications for use by the entire community.
Finally, we have a new video that features 2 NTHs synced in an improvised jam. When the NTH receives MIDI sync, it passes the signal thru to its MIDI out port. This makes it possible to “chain” the NTH with additional NTH units or other devices.
Thanks for reading and watching!
New Video: NTH Sequencing External Synth
Welcome, readers from Gizmodo and Make!
Thank you to our Kickstarter backers for helping the NTH surpass its funding goal. Thanks also for spreading the word–we hope to see a large community of NTH users sharing mods and techniques.
We’re not done yet. There is lots of NTH functionality to demonstrate. Today’s video shows the NTH sequencing an external synth.
There’s more to come. Thanks for reading and watching!
