Quasimidi Sirius User Manual pdf (English)


Why am I posting this here?

Well, I recently acquired a rare and wonderful Quasimidi Sirius keyboard/workstation. Though the manufacturer (Quasimidi) has been defunct for many years, I figured I'd be able to find and download a manual for this quite sophisticated device. HOWEVER, the most-easily-found version of the download is a rough scan in a damaged PDF file that would not print on my printer. Very frustrating.

A good 2 hrs of web searching ultimately brought me here: http://www.quasimidisupport.de/html/downloads1.htm where lives a very nice pdf of the manual that prints-out crisp and clear. Yay!

I hope this information will be of use to other seekers.

Scott from curiousinventor has whipped-up this super-cool demo of a monome 40h working with 3 stribe1s. The devices are connected via software (Max/MSP). Links to the Max patch coming soon!


Finally, a reason to get an iPhone

TouchOSC is an iPhone / iPod Touch application that lets you send and receive Open Sound Control messages over a Wi-Fi network using the UDP protocol.

The application allows you to remote control and receive feedback from software and hardware that implements the OSC protocol such as Pure Data and Max/MSP.
