the syncotron project

The Syncotron Bathysphere Sound Suite consists of:
  • the Samplomatic

    - gathers and analyzes sounds, writes wave files

  • the Syncotron

    - runs as a daemon listening for instructions from multiple clients on the network and playing an audio stream to a soundcard

  • the Syncotron Curses Client, syncodj

    - let's a human DJ talk to the syncotron

The Bathysphere is a theme camp at the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert.

Sourceforge now hosts the suite of custom-made software that was designed to run inside the Bathysphere.

At the 2000 festival, the Samplomatic made its debut. It was a success, as the software performed without a hitch -- the only real difficulty was placing the microphones for the greatest acoustic isolation in the middle of the festival.


The Syncotron Bathysphere Sound Suite is an independent project hosted by Sourceforge.
