slow developments in transducer feedback land:

- I started using a different preamp for the piezos and it's great
- I started using supercollider and it's great
- The spectral compressor-expander I was using in pd has a direct analog in sc and it's great
- I started using a plank of cedar(?) which I think will be in the next box and it's great

here are four bandpass filters roaming over resonant feedback nodes on the plank, bathed in a swath of reverb

(noisy enough?)

- sc feels a little verbose. the proliferation of brackets & parentheses has always bugged me, but creating busses for each signal redirection feels like a lot. there's probably a trick for that which I have yet to learn.
- preamp: richardmudhar.com/blog/piezo-c
- spectral compressor-expander is PV_Compander from the sc3-plugins package. I'm not sure how the arguments work but the examples are useful.
- the handling noises aren't very audible in the transducer output (and it's great)

- I'm looking forward to getting to the more algorithmic part of supercollider
- tuning in to @draco's supercollider stream now to absorb some scsynth knowledge 💡

@dried thanks! yes, the signal routing is a pain... I'm trying to get to more generative, less deterministic ways of using SC myself.

My mojo is kinda low at the moment, I had a host of problems both with SC and computer audio in general earlier today. Maybe I just need some rest.

@draco thank you for the stream! I liked the music that played out at the end.

I haven't seen those pattern objects that you were using near the end, I'll have to do some research on those

@dried you mean Pwrand and Pxrand? Or the degree stuff?

more notes 

@draco those two and also almost everything that happened in that big Dictionary

@dried I'll share the code tomorrow! Or the day after tomorrow, or whenever I get over the frustrations of today.

@draco thanks, it will be useful to poke around a bit with it! But no rush :)

@dried that said, the pattern library is vast and sometimes confusing and you can nest things to ththigh heavens. I'm probably using just a tiny fraction of it.

@draco holy smokes I'm in the middle of Eli Fielsteel's tutorial video on Patterns and you really weren't kidding -- the Pattern library is huge!
