DIY MIDI Controller Synth Jam

Sunday Synth Jam: From the department of strange musical instruments comes Nick Demopoulos’s Snomid.

The Smomid is a unique instrument, created by Demopoulos. Its name is an acronym for “String Modeling Midi Device.

In this video, Demopoulos is experimenting with the idea of using the Smomid to control drumbeats:

I didn’t utilize all the functions I have, but some of them include reversing the directions of all the drum samples, different rhythms for different drums, scrambling up a drumbeat and having certain drums play random rhythms.

See Demopoulos’s site for more info.
