    • iPad Running Cassini and Sunrizer with the Bitstream 3X and MKS-80

      In the video I have focused on illustrating how one might use two iPad synthesizer apps and a hardware synthesizer together including Cassini, Sunrizer, and the MKS-80. The BS3X is used as both the iPad interface and MKS-80 controller. No computer is required, but a simple change of cable allows for a computer to be integrated into this setup because the MOTU UltraLite interface and standalone mixer has MIDI I/O. In other words two MIDI interfaces are still necessary with a computer, but prior to this experiment I was only using the BS3X as a controller for the MKS-80 and bypassing the class compliant USB MIDI interface functionality. Since the USB hub was required I also added the QuNexus to the setup. This was dedicated to feeding notes into the arpeggiator in Cassini. The keyboard controller was split so that in the low end I could play the MKS-80 effect then tweak it with the BS3X knobs and sliders as it decayed. In the upper end of the same keyboard I played a lead sound programmed in Sunrizer. See more at: http://audiocookbook.org/low-latency-wired-midi-with-ipad-and-bitstream-3x/

            First official teaser for "In Saturn's Rings", a giant screen space film for IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming spring 2014. To watch in 4K, download "original file" (you need a fast computer and a 4K monitor to view it full rez). http://www.insaturnsrings.com/ https://www.facebook.com/insaturnsringsmovie https://twitter.com/insaturnsrings The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns and 2.5D photo animation processes. A computer is actually not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoanimation). No 3D models, texture mapping, 3D CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used - every pixel is what was captured in the photograph. The photographs are processed as minimally as possible - much less than your average Instagram photo.

            • What Cassini Sees

              Raw, uncalibrated images from the Cassini spacecraft in sequence to get an idea of what Cassini photographs as it orbits Saturn. Most of the video is focused on Saturn’s moon, Prometheus, as it orbits the planet. If you look closely, you can see how the moon disturbs Saturn’s F-ring, tugging on the particles with its own gravity and creating a rippling effect. Cassini only has 1 megapixel black and white cameras. The beautiful high resolution color photographs of Saturn taken by Cassini are stitched and composited here on earth. This is test footage from the forthcoming film for IMAX theaters "In Saturns's Rings" http://www.insaturnsring.com

                  Science and Faith merge in this video of a unique hexagon surrounding Saturn's North Pole and first imaged by the Cassini Satellite. The Hexagon has long had mystical significance. Although visible in infrared in 2009, the image came to visible light in 2012 during the onset of Summer in the planet's Northern Hemisphere. Edgar Cayce, the most well-known psychic of the 20th century predicted in 1934 that between 1957 and the time that Cassini would be launched that HIS light would be "seen again in the clouds." Despite sophisticated computer modelling, the explanation for the precise geometric symmetry of this formation has puzzled scientists. Does it have mystical significance? Cayce certainly did not specify that the clouds were to be terrestrial. We leave its interpretation to you.

                    A new study uses thousands of infrared photographs of the Saturn system to reveal that the planet’s moons and rings are older than expected. A surface dusting of dark minerals helped conceal their age, but distributed underneath is an abundance of water ice—a telltale leftover from the earliest days of the Solar System, billions of years ago. Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.
