IBM Announces iDataPlex line

The press folks at IBM have jumped the gun and posted a video of their new iDataPlex line in advance of the official announcement tomorrow morning. The video on their press site does little to demonstrate how it's any different that what is currently available on the market. There are a few glimpses of the actual hardware 1 minute and 25 seconds into the 140MB windows media file.


Hopefully there will be better details of the product line tomorrow. From the brief glimpses in the movie it looks like yet another Rackable clone.

Alesis ModFX Bitrman Control Voltage Mod

Here's a video of an Alesis Bitrman that I modified for external control voltage input. I think it takes an already good sounding effects box and allows it to really shine. While it's driven by a quantized voltage source in the video it's exceptionally good with a non-quantized source such as a Serge TKB. Then you can tune the the frequency shift amount, or ringmod sidebands, to be in tune with the pitch of that particular step. Loads of fun.
