This video, via Retrokits, is, in part, a technical demo of the company’s RK-002 MIDI cable. But it’s also a great demo of making the most of some cheap gear – like a Korg Volca Sample and a 30 year-old Macintosh Plus computer.
Seq24 and RK-002 used to play New Orders’ Blue Monday on a Korg Volca Sample.
A RaspberryPi 3 is running Seq24 to send out MIDI via RetroKits’ serial port driver to the connected RK-004.
The RK-002 does real-time MIDI processing, so you can use note velocity, chromatically play multiple channels on the Volca Sample and still keep a few sample channels available for drum triggering.
