Transcript

  • 1. Open Hardware, DIY,80s sonic aesthetics... ... and where they meet Olivier Gillet
  • 2. Outline! History! Choices! Congruence! Moving forward
  • 3. History
  • 4. 2009
  • 5. 2009
  • 6. 2009
  • 7. 2009
  • 8. 2011
  • 9. 200 500+150 2200+ 2012
  • 10. Mutable Instruments in december 2012! 4 products: monosynth, polysynth, monosynth+drum machine, MIDI processor! Volumes comparable to some established manufacturers! Organic growth, 100% bootstrapped business, financially in the green, with 0 marketing
  • 11. Can be spotted in the wild!
  • 12. Specificity 1
  • 13. Specificity 2
  • 14. Open source HW! Circuit analyses / simulations! Schematics + PCB layout! Bill of materials, cross-references for up to 4 suppliers! Plexiglas enclosure design (laser cutting)
  • 15. Open source code! Open source firmware for all instruments (~80k LOC)! Avril / Avril-X: C++ development frameworks for AVR microcontrollers! AVR MIDI bootloader + tools
  • 16. The Mutable inMutable Instruments
  • 17. Choices
  • 18. Cursor 1 Technological stackHome/Hackerspace Factory
  • 19. Cursor 2Toy vs Tool
  • 20. Cursor 3 What is sold?Bag of parts 1 year of R&D 1 year of R&D + Bag of parts + Bag of parts + 1 hour of consulting
  • 21. Cursor 4 Which concessions to openness?Proprietary at the Open architecture, butarchitecture level, proprietary at the silicon level,open tooling closed tooling
  • 22. Congruence
  • 23. DIY ♥ music! Musicians are geeks! “Solder your cables” = the gateway drug! Self -expression. Uniqueness! Workflow customization
  • 24. DIY ♥ 80s! DIP microcontroller = computing power of a 80s home computer! Hackerspace-friendly tech = 80s high-end consumer electronics tech! Most accessible DIY synth techniques = those used in early 80s product (digitally controlled analog, hybrid)
  • 25. DIY ♥ 80s! “Survival of the shortest”. Generative music/graphics trick from the 80s are relevant on low-cost embedded platforms! Publication of programs as source code in zines = proto- open-source
  • 26. Electronic music ♥ 80s! Analog synthesis as a mature tech! The point after which synths became boring! British synth-pop, then birth of techno
  • 27. Electronic music ♥ 80s
  • 28. DIY in 2012 sends us back to the golden age of synths
  • 29. What’s next
  • 30. Things the 80s got wrong! Software quality... Thanks C++! ! Discipline ! Zero-cost abstractions ! Idioms and patterns useful for embedded! AI
  • 31. Intelligence in 16k of SRAM! Complicated stuff is offline anyway!! Boosting! Bloom filters/maps! “Lossy computing”! ... Coming soon in new MI products!
  • 32. Not a DogmaIf it can make great sounds but requires modern tech... ... MI will still build it, with modern tech
  • 33. Stumbling blocks! Open source business ! transparent vs! Cultural clash between old-school industries and DIY/maker movement
  • 34. Questions?mutable-instruments.net
  • 35. Cursor 5 / Curse #3379Education Hardcore openness
  • 36. (I’m not the only one... )! x0xb0x: Open-source (but clone of existing design)! MIDIbox: Platform for designing controllers +several synth projects (but not open-source)! Many modular DIY projects (not open-source)! Meeblip, PreenFM, Rockit, LushOne (open- source)
