Frankenloop is a Reaktor powered step sequencer made by Peter Dines. You take a basic pitch modulator but then spice in some randomness so that as it plays through the generator loop is sounds different every time. A great tool for generating crazy subtractive synth sounds. It also speaks MIDI, so driving other soft synths and your external gear is well within its power. Best of all its free and released under a Creative Commons license.

The Beavis Board is a beginning electronics DIYerâ€™s dream. US$249 buys you a full kit of everything you need to wire up your own guitar pedals, newbie-friendly â€“ no soldering, no parts hunting, no â€¦ actual thinking required. Of course, whatâ€™s likewise wonderful about that is you can tool around with all different combinations. The crawl of possible circuit layouts reads like one of those infomercials. (Just look at everything you get! Best hits of the 80s! Air conditioner repair!)
A hardware hackers dream, the Coyote-1 Open Stomp is a plug and play reconfigurable effects pedal kit. alGARhythm is going to be all over this when it comes out.
Girl Talk has a new album out, and he’s trying the pay what you will model. The album is a fun, twisted romp thru new and old school house/rap/pop/rock, and is more of a mash’d-up dj mix than his previous albums. Its not as strong as Night Ripper, but there are some choice cuts on it. Peep this one: Don’t Stop before heading over to the site to download it. And since its the choose-your-own-adventure pricing model, free is an option - though you will be greeted with this:
I have opted to pay $0.00 because:
-I may donate later
-I can’t afford to pay
-I don’t really like Girl Talk
-I don’t believe in paying for music
-I have already purchased this album
-I don’t value music made from sampling
-I am part of the press, radio, or music industry
The MP3s are 320kbps. If you $5 or more you’ll get the option to download the album in high quality FLAC format. Choosing $10 or more will add a physical CD to the mix (shipping is extra).
