Didn't do a live Tidal practice on Tuesday as I was waiting for this rack for my volcas to turn up. gotta say it's made using multiple of them a lot easier. No more reaching over to see and use them.
I've also nearly got the Launchpad X running r_cycle via a pisound. Not quite a dawless* setup as the pisound is just a linux computer. More like a headless setup.
Going dawless isn't that important to me, though it is an interesting experiment to see what I can accomplish without a screen.
i've spent the last 6 months mad about nfts. and i guess i finally got mad enough to write it all down. ->
Today on twitter I talked about something which has bugged/upset me for years. I know nothing will come of it but I'm glad I said it https://twitter.com/hellocatfood/status/1366396607936217089
@th4 I'm listening back to the jam on Sunday and really really like the melody on it!
Do you have any tips for creating melodies in Tidal or is just down to personal preference + experience with the software?
Sometimes I have to put this disclaimer because whenever you talk about tech on the internet people just want to tell you about why you should or shouldn't use a particular tech instead. Probably well meaning
(no software recommendations plz)
Stopping with tidalcycles for a bit to try some other software and other ways of making noises. Picked up Automationism https://www.automatonism.com/ and rly enjoy how it made using pure data bit more bearable. Have some noise. It's noisy.

To give some context I regularly chain lv2 and vst plugins using either Carla or mod-ui (via a pisound).
I want control individual effects without a mouse and using a familiar interface
and I need to quantise my midi input!
Today I announced a new mentoring programme for Black artists in the West Midlands (UK) who want to explore the creative potential of live coding. Details are here: https://algo-afro-futures.lurk.org/
In short four participants will get mentoring in all things live coding from me and @yaxu over four sessions and will be given a fee of £100 per session attended.
I know my reach on the fediverse is small so if you know anyone who could benefit from this please pass it on to them #livecoding
Tried using @maya's dithering method and it looks nice when used on gifs https://maya.land/monologues/2021/02/15/css-dither.html
