⚠️ "Caution Weird Floor"! ⚠️


violence, audacity, 4chan 

Lead developer (cookiengineer) from the #audacity fork (#tenacity) got attacked with a knife at their place of residential, after several others showed up at their door to create fear.
No life threatening physical injury happened.

This happened after they got harassed and doxxed via #4chan.

They report that the for #sneedacity took part in this harassment campaign. (I did not take the time to verify that)

Their report can be read here:

Harassment is not a joke and again and again it shows that it leads to IRL consequences. And it must stop.

more about the work at WAC:

Radio-active Monstrosities is a interface that addresses ways of listening to collective voices and female-sounding voices that are perceived as inappropriate or annoying. Visitors of the page are invited to record themselves and choose a type of distortion to participate in, forming new imaginaries around technologically-mediated voices, which through their technical ‘monstrosity’, can reveal other forms of speech. The interface uses Web Audio API to distort vocal contributions into 4 different types of distortion: ‘collective’, ‘echo’, ‘lowpitch’ and ‘lowpass’.

WAC is an international conference dedicated to web audio technologies and applications. The conference addresses academic research, artistic research, development, design, evaluation and standards concerned with emerging audio-related web technologies such as Web Audio API, Web RTC, WebSockets and Javascript.

So you know how the 1541 has a 6502 in it? (it's basically a computer in a disk drive, but it has no display...)

So um

Here's a demo, and a writeup about the demo, on how to make a demo for a 1541 disk drive.

and have it display stuff.



Mind you the start of the demo showed cutting cables and I was very "NOOOooOOOO don't damage the equipment" so I hope people make custom cables instead of damaging cables but that's me

Finally finished fixing, recapping and calibrating this old BOSS DM-100 analogue delay/chorus from 1980. It sounds very noice.

While fixing it I saw the PCB had the Roland logo on it, and looking a bit further, it seems like Roland was basically making all the BBD delays for BOSS, Maxon, and probably more. Actually, comparing the panel and PCBs, it seems that the BOSS DM-100 is a revision update of the 1978 Roland Analog Echo DC-20.

Anyway, I think this one has lots of potential for modding. I'm thinking of learning more about CV in, and that would be a great addition. This delay also has an analogue filter linked to the delay length, it's all hardwired but would be great to have the possibility to control the filter as well.
