R.I.P. Klaus Schulze


Recommended Posts



Klaus was the Keith Emerson of non-rock, non-classical synthesizer works. That may be a slight reach when he was the the drummer for Tangerine Dream's early "Electronic Meditation" album, but no, he began to flower as a solo synth act. One high point about him is that I DIDN'T like everything he released just because it was Klaus. He experimented and you either liked that new vein or you didn't. There was that intriguing, added element of challenge.

 

TD is sometimes seen as the main force behind the Berlin sound, which is not at all unfair, but "Timewind" was neck-in-neck with them, to my ears of the moment. The filter sweeps sound quaint now, but they were mind-boggling back then. A synth life beautifully rendered.

I tried different apps but wrote my own apps because it just didn't fit my requirements.

I wanted to have: single click between songs and overview, no scrolling, backup in icloud, setlist and playing backing tracks.
The app runs in pythonista and looks like this:

 

Main screen with songs. this is a folder in iCloud. it is easy to maintain in my Macbook. I can also use subfolders to store old material.

Is also shows the time and battery status. It is possible to use jpg or txt files. txt files are shown as large as possible. the songs are shown in one page to avoid scrolling.

In this case a jpg is shown with some score and chord info. 

When clicking in the center of the screen the main screen shows, in the right area it will move to the next song, left to the previous.

There is also an option to create a .set file with parts of the name of songs in a set like this:

 

Relight
WeAre
SoExi
Inferno
Abba
AnyPlace

 

the matching song is searched for the chords folder and a set is created like this (looks ugly, i found no option to center multi-line buttons):

in this case a mix of 3 sets. when a song is selected, the jpg or txt is shown. including the progress and next song. In this case a queen medley with 2 parts. searching for queen gave two results: queen1 and queen2. In this song there is a backingtrack. It plays the backing on the left channel and the click on the right channel.
If a .wav file is located with the same name as a .txt of .jpg file the play/stop option is added.

This works very fast and super reliable. 
I still sometime check if other apps can work this fast, but it always takes more clicks and scrolling.

Um dude?  This thread is about the passing of Electronic music pioneer Klaus Schulaze.
