Pinned toot

I finally made the repository to my Rust software synth public. It's not finished yet, but if anyone wants to have a look already, I'd appreciate any feedback (regarding sound, usability, documentation, whatever).

Also, this is your chance to go down in history: If you come up with any nice sounds, I'll be happy to include them in the default sound set, which currently still is mostly empty.

Friday night in Tokyo: Having a drinking party with a friend (who lives about 20 minutes away by train) via Skype. Could be worse, I guess. Kanpai.

Started working on Coltrane's Giant Steps on guitar. That's going to keep me busy for a while.

Here's the original:

When running into an audio setup problem, my usual reaction is "Let's buy more cables".

I should have expected that getting a semi-modular synth fits nicely into that schema.

This sounds interesting: A Python library for music source separation. That might make transcribing a much easier task.

Yes! I got the FFT working, so I can now convert any wavetable to a list of harmonics and back again.

That means I can generate bandlimited versions from any source wavetable. And that means user-imported wavetables without aliasing. Feels like my synth is growing up.

Just watched this nice talk by Ian Hobson on audio programming in Rust (from 2018). He starts out with the Rust basics, but then demonstrates implementing a reverb algorithm and integrating it in various environments.

Would be nice to see Rust getting more popular for this type of application

So, somehow this guy showed up on my desk today. Hey, it's for research, don't judge me.

Actually I was looking at some other brands like Pittsburgh Modular or Dreadbox, not a big fan of B., but none of them were available right now. Anyways, happy so far, got some nice sounds out of it.

Going to do a comparison later, analog vs. digital.

Sunday fun: Changed the boring mono delay to an exciting stereo ping-pong delay.

東京事変 - 「ブラックアウト」

(One of my favorite basslines in the chorus, played by Seiji Kameda.)

Finally found the time to work on my synth again. Here's a short video showing some scanning through internal and imported wavetables.

(Sorry for the lack of melodic content - it's all about the waves!)

This project is turning out better than I expected. The sound edit workflow is exactly as I want it, which means no mouse required. I feel I'm already faster than with any other softsynth I've tried.

Covid in Japan 

Received my government-issued cloth masks today. Every household gets two of these, regardless of household size, to help during the mask shortage.

They are only a little bigger than my palm, so they don't sit tight on my non-Asian face. But they are also too thick to breathe through, so if they sat tight, I'd probably suffocate. Nice gesture, but not helpful.

how would you most likely regularily support a musician?

(pls boost)

Yesterday we had 18 degrees, today it's snowing. likes to entertain.

Y'all know those telephone conferences at work, where you don't really have anything useful to add, but of course you HAVE to attend, because that's just the way it's done? Well, I'm in one of these right now, and I'm eating a nice cup of ice cream. Maybe working from home isn't all bad.
