Orbiting drones in DIN Is Noise 8.1

In DIN 8.1, you can orbit drones around an another drone, change their velocity and acceleration and even modulate their position as they orbit! This video was made with a phone at La Bois Landelle, a farm just outside Hudimesnil village in France. I was working in a converted cow-shed for a month with more cows and pigs than humans for company!

There are over 3 hours of video tutorials & demos to help you learn DIN Is Noise & explore its features. However, the tutorial videos are not upto date as they were made with an older version of DIN on GNU/Linux. I couldnt update them when I moved away from GNU/Linux to make DIN Is Noise for Windows and Mac OS X. Still, with some patience, you can learn the key unchanged features of DIN from the old tutorial videos. btw, al~dinja's page on vimeo contains more detailed description, commentary and index.

The following videos are out of date for versions 1.9.2 and beyond because DIN starts with the keyboard-keyboard as the default instrument. To still make use of these tutorials/demos, first press 1 to get to the microtonal-keyboard (it appears as DIN board in these videos).

Drones demo:

The most viewed DIN video. More drones than you can shake a stick at.

New users guide to din:

Mainly about playing the lead voice in din
