I hope that at some classical performers' conference or band geek reunion somewhere, someome has done a spin on the Manhattan cocktail and called it the Manhasset

@PatchNotes It was nice to use tools I made (cv-utils, turns, and of course the maple box featured here). I'm continually apprehensive that I'm spending more time making tools than working with them.

...But of course I found bugs and would-be-nice features while using them.

Some more staid rhythms and tones.

: The intersections of two pairs of related waves (turns' quadlfo) trigger impulses in a network of resonance (resonant filters and IO transducer feedback on the maple box). These triggers also sample another wave which becomes the pitch of a whistling sound (timing of which is controlled by a different s&h process).

(is @PatchNotes still a thing?)

hey fedi hive, halp!

dereverb plugin for speech?

( ala SPL (Deverb), Dyvision (Reverb Remover) and Zynaptic (Unveil) )

please boost

dreaming of a CLI matrix patchbay for jack that can save and reload configurations

(I know there's a CV port type for jack, I just haven't implemented it yet so 🤷 )

Show thread

Made some little CLI utilities for using jack audio streams as if they were CV. So far just a VCA, slew limiter, sample-and-hold, and track-and-hold. Hoping to pair with turns and who knows, maybe other things.

Mother-32 (sounding not very moog-ish) and pinged filter through a wavefolder, both output the maple box. Driven by crow with some manual intervention & tamed feedback.

(Definitely some work possible to massage the script, but it's pretty fun already)

Donate to @falktx for is massive amount of work in creating and maintaining key foss audio software.

When I discovered, it changed my life and many would say the same. Finally I could make proper music with Linux.

When I wanted to make an audio plugin (without any prior programming knowledge) he pointed me to DPF and has helped me several times. So now I create opensource audio software too!

Random issue fix that needs to be out there in the world: if you find that your measure numbers are missing after a certain point, it's often because Sib can't grok your repeats structure. The fixes out there online say to either fix it with notation or notate it with elements that Sib doesn't recognize as affecting the repeat structure, but you can disable the element's playback with the inspector's "Play on pass" options and avoid changing your notation.

It's almost like writing speculative fiction...

Writing the performance notes to this score as a description of the performance ("the stage is set like this, the performers do this and it sounds like this"). I usually write prescriptively ("do this so that this") but I'm really enjoying writing like this. It's way less dry, which I hope translates into carrying more of the gist of what I'm after. I just hope it works for the ensemble!

Using Sibelius* and wanting to add a reminder to come back to touch up a certain part in the future. It's not obvious how to do this, but to look it up online I'd have to search for "How to add a note in Sibelius"... sigh...

*Notation software is suffering. MuseScore can't do what I need to for this piece otherwise I'd use it. I'd love to see something like a FOSS GUI editor for LilyPond within an SVG document (is there a way to embed a LilyPond renderer in InkScape?)

Alc recco 

If you're in the PNW and you like farmhouse beers, this one is definitely worth a try. Mildly sour, mildly wild. Brewed in Penticton, BC. Tasty tasty tasty!

This tome just arrived from Russia, the day before I leave for vacation. Guess that's my reading material set.
