Posted on Toolband today was a link to Vince De Franco‘s latest project, the Mandala Synapse. I’m no expert, but it looks like a gizmo that allows you to connect a range of musical devices (mainly percussion) to a PC with low latency.
Vince is looking for people to fund the device using the popular Kickstarter service. By pledging certain amounts, you can get a range of goodies, from stickets, t-shirts, signed Danny Carey drum sticks and even the device itself. Sadly, unlike Josh Freese they’re not offering a drive in Danny’s Lamborghini on mushrooms reward.
Here’s a video which hopefully explains the project better than me:
If this sounds like a good idea, then get on board and pledge some money.
