The higher clicks are the Mother-32 ladder filter, the lower tones are Mutable Instruments Ripples. Ripples tracks better across different resonances, so it was much easier to dial in.

Much brighter sound from the M32 clicks than the svf~ in the original. Less dynamic depth in terms of things like attack amplitude and resonance / envelope duration because I just don't have the means to modulate them at the moment, but even still it feels like there's more brightness / depth overall somehow

I have two filters now, which meant it was time to work on my hybrid setup and recreate an older patch I liked with analog sound sources.

No changes other than converting the output to controls for the synths and slapping on some reverb.

quick recording of the feedback box indoors analyzing and modulating its own feedback. (outdoors documentation in process...)

fridge revs up in the middle 🤦

also JackTrip for realtime high-def audio streaming over networks. No GUI but super easy on the commandline: jacktrip -s to start the server and jacktrip -c {server's IP} to start the client

FOSS audio apps to have in your toolkit (which in my experience fly under the radar):

- Zita's Aliki - for generating impulse responses. (The interface is a bit opaque if you don't know the process but there's a manual on their website, worth taking the time to learn)
- Sonic Visualiser - Great tool for analyzing recordings (like, for instance, IRs)
- Spek - for quickly generating those iconic spectrogram images

A little droney thing. 2 voices and filter resonance, through calf stereo tools and panagement reverb (<3).

- stereo mixing is hard
- need offsets for LFOs
- tuning with knobs is fiddly

I am putting a call out to the fediverse for people who rely on screen readers to use computers to critique Mixxx's accessibility. Input from people who are musicians would be especially appreciated. I want to consider your perspectives as we are planning how to rewrite Mixxx's GUI with QML. Please boost.

work on the feedback box(en) continues. I made the amarula box a friend. here's a pretty nice moment they shared.

Constantly (re-)learning how not to break my body with this thing, constantly breaking my body with this thing

recently discovered the "random step" mode in the m32 sequencer, as well as the ability to modulate tempo & a few playback parameters. Here the m32 is in dialogue with a granular delay patch, some light knob twiddling, and a few system clicks near the end (my granular patch running a little too heavy...)

the swells are done by setting the filter to hi-pass, modulating by the envelope in "inverted polarity" so that while the env decays, the cutoff rises (high-pass gate?)

@PatchNotes

having your music player pause after every track in a grindcore album is not ideal

every so often it plays something that sounds like it could be the beginning of giant steps and I can't help but think it's been shedding Coltrane lifts

gonna set up a livestream just of this stupid patch babbling, video just deadpan on the succulent. every 14 days I come in and carefully place 4 drops of water on it and adjust a knob by 3 degrees. it'll be like the fireplace channel at xmas.

ahh this thing is so dumb but I can't stop listening to it
