Just finished a short observation on timbre and tuning. Maybe obvious to many, but for me it was a revelation. And since it is also
I guess it is more relevant this month than usual.

Just finished reading this book. A great read with an indigenous (connected to place, not just australian aboriginal) persepective on sustainability. Interesting and stimulating!

Installed AV linux MX on an old Sony Vaio laptop, 4gb ram.
Works beautifully. Looks like an interesting distro.
No pipewire but jack is integrated nicely and works out of the box, no glitches. Currently with 10ms of latency, but can probably do better.

I was wondering.
AI will always have a finite number of variables and also apparently can behave in unpredictable ways towards the boundary of its parameter space. I would take this as indicating that is destined to fail, always, in attempts to produce a general ai...
There must be some way to prove or disprove such a statement!

pandoc is fantastic. Don't know why I never used it before..

New computers that are three times faster.. meaning throwing out all the "old" ones.. more waste.. AHhh

@dried @jayrope The last leg of the two-pole filter is 10k Ohm which should take care of impedance. This can go straight into a pedal for guitar which is where it usually goes.

The mems (piezo) have a much better sound, but unfortunately they are tiny, and my feeble soldering skills mean that the contact that I manage to make lasts for about 5 minutes of playing time.
I am in the process of designing a pcb for the pickup and getting someone serious to do the soldering..
