The MIDIVampire has 16 different wavetables, AM, FM, attack, decay, reverb, and a slew of other parameters all controlled by MIDI CC messages.
There’s also a MIDIVampire II – a 4-voice drum machine that is powered from the MIDI data line. It offers snare, hi-hat, cymbal, and bass drum sounds, or you can build your own percussion sounds with MIDI CC messages.
Cheap and cool – but how do you adjust the MIDIVampire’s settings, without any knobs?
This video demonstrates one approach – using an iPad with TouchOSC:
MIDIvamp is a template for TouchOSC that lets you control all the parameters for the MIDIvamps. It can be downloaded from the openmusiclabs wiki. See the Open Music Labs site for more on the MidiVampire series.
