Steinberg Neon and Karlette VST plugins are back.

Thanks to Wire to the Ear for tipping us off that Steinberg has re-released their Neon softsynth and Karlette tape delay effect. Back in the 90’s these two were some of the first VST plugins I’d ever used. I can’t wait to load them up in Ableton Live and take them for a spin again.

Bent Festival 2011 – News and Kickstarter Project

Bent Speak and Math

This is a great event and I’m so glad it’s finally here again! In their own words:

The Bent Festival is an annual art and music festival celebrating circuit bending and its related creative practices: DIY electronics, hardware hacking, glitch, software art, abstract video. Each year artists are welcomed from across the country and around the globe to share their craft through performances, workshops, video screenings, art exhibitions, and installations. The festival, as a whole, showcases the state of the art in DIY electronics and circuit bending culture.”

They have a Kickstarter project going right now with only a few days left so if you’d like to help out now is the time! Here is a link to their Kickstarter page
