A new version is now available of the Advanced Music Creation System from 3rd Event – a MIDI/audio sequencer that doesn’t just run on RISC OS, but replaces it to become the operating system on the computer. This latest version is to be used on 3rd Event’s Inverted Light Source radio show on fnoob techno on 29th August.
A new version of AMCS, the MIDI/audio sequencer that replaces RISC OS with its own operating system, is available to download from the 3rd Event website. The new version features multiple USB-MIDI interface routing and various other tweaks and fixes.
In case you haven’t noticed any previous references, such as the first announcement, or the banner along the top of all the pages on this site1, there is an extra (sort of2) RISC OS show taking place in just five days time on 9th December – the MUG RISC OS Xmas market.
And a round-up of other show dates, whether known or likely! The time is almost here to say goodbye to 2023 and welcome in a whole new year, which we should probably call ‘2024’ – and if we’re looking at a new year, we may as well start thinking about the RISC OS shows that we’ll be attending, the first of which is usually the Southwest Show.
The Midlands User Group (MUG) will be holding their next meeting at 2:00pm on Saturday, 11th November, and with their Xmas Market event barely a month away, the time will be given over to discussing the mini show, and finalising plans for it.
25th February 2023 saw the RISC OS Southwest Show return to the Arnos Manor Hotel in Bristol. This was the first time the event has taken place since just before the Covid pandemic hit the UK, with the last one pretty much on the eve of the plague landing on our shores in early 2020.
I don’t think anyone can possibly disagree with me when I say that 2020, so far, has been an unusual year. Most of the world is in some form of lockdown due to the SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, with movements beyond our homes and interactions with people beyond our own households at a minimum – which means (in a RISC OS context) shows and user group meetings aren’t taking place.
The 2019 RISC OS London Show took place on Saturday, 26th October – and once again (speaking as an exhibitor) seemed to be a buzzing, exciting show with plenty for the visitor to see and experience. It was the 11th London Show, with the first having taken place on 3rd October, 2009, and there was a good mix of exhibitors including large well known RISC OS names and smaller home-based operators. As well as many well known faces there were new ones as well, which is always welcome – and…
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind second venue for the RISC OS Southwest Show Since its inception, each and every Southwest Show until this year’s had been held at the Webbington Hotel in Somerset – a grand total of twenty one shows, with twenty years between the first, which took place on 7th February, 1998, and last year’s event, which took place on 24th February, 2018.
Just in time for Wakefield! With half of a year having passed since the London Show (and the Wakefield Show almost upon us), the RISCOSitory report is more than a little overdue – again! The usual main excuse applies, which is that it’s always busy here in the bunker, and some things have to be put off in favour of other, more important tasks. However, it is now the turn of that task to be used to put off other less important things – so here, at long last, is…
