Hey new mastodon users. A lot of us won't follow you back unless you have posted before and have an avatar. Otherwise you look like a bot.
So, if you're getting started try dropping an #introduction post in there first before you start clicking that "follow" button a bunch.
so like let's say, out of curiosity, that i wanted to hop on the #novembeat train, i want to try and make digital music, i have never written digital music before, but i am pretty familiar with the basics of music. oh and also i'm on linux
does anyone have any recommendations for programs i should play around with?
Otherwise the userland complains "could not open device" (with further information in dmesg that helped me to figure out what was going on).
The #radicale project (selfhosting carddav/caldav solution) is currently looking for some new core maintainers.
Please re-toot and share it in your community if you want to help.
112bpm FS-UAE emulated A500+ OctaMED using PercLOOP.03 sample that I found in my collection (provenance probably the OctaMED SoundStudio distribution CD-ROM, but where they got it from who knows...).
Used command 0101 for stereo phasing. Chopped up the beat with my tool Stanley.
1 minute loop of simultaneously ascending and descending drone synthesized by phase vocoder from 2D modal decomposition room model, shape changing from 2:1 to 1:2 while the sources and sinks rotate a quarter turn. Low cut filter and dynamics compressed 2:1 in Audacity, made seamless via cross-fade.
#Debugging unpredictable glitches in some audio code, turns out that I must not overwrite host memory pointed to by #OpenCL `clEnqueueWriteBuffer()` before its finish event is signalled. I chose the easier solution of specifying a synchronous write instead of asynchronous, at the potential cost of less throughput.
1 minute loop of compressed 128bpm filtered drone with kick drum pulse (32 bars).
The drone is a version of Sea Organ 2.2, part of my clive-based algorave set. I recorded 2 minutes and crossfaded the halves with each other to make it seamless.
The filter is a 4D version of
https://mathr.co.uk/blog/2015-07-15_modes_in_a_box.html implemented in OpenCL on GPU (even so it is decidedly not realtime). Virtual speakers and ears chase each other in Lissajous figures around the box.
Layered loud kick on top in Audacity and applied 4:1 dynamic range compression to get the pumping effect.
16 bars of 144bpm chopped Amen break in OctaMED SoundStudio running in FS-UAE emulated Amiga A500+, repeated twice with minor changes at intro/outro.
