What I have discovered through the class is that persistence is key! I have talked a bit about the difficulties with the sounds getting finished/approved and whatnot for the capstone game. They finally have been finished! Reaktor is a favorite of mine. It is seemingly endless, and I find myself lost in it for hours. Love it!
Also, I have been introduced to circuit bending. Unfortunately, I have been unable to fully complete a project. But, I am not going to give up on that anytime soon! I have a few fried boards, but purchased the toys for pretty cheap, so it’s not a huge loss. And! Each time I fry a new board, I feel that I’m getting closer to not destroying quite so many 🙂
Overall, I think I have gained valuable experience in working with a group that isn’t in my class, but one that I still need to collaborate with to get a project finished.
Circuit bending tutorials that are good are somewhat hard to find since each toy, sound, and experience is different! I still have a few guitars that I’m saving for when I get better equipment and ventilation. Very excited about taking those apart and, hopefully, not frying them!
