Okay so #introductions
Hello. I'm @paul. I'm a musical hacker and sound designer interested in teaching computers how to sing. I spend most of my time working on software projects related to the field of computer music.
Some topics that amuse me:
My website: pbat.ch

Mono Icons, Aesthetic
Generated a tileset of all the Mono Icons using imagemagick's montage command:
montage -verbose *.svg -geometry +0+0 out.png
There's something about monochromatic icons densely packed together on a grid really does it for me.
Many of these seem like they could be converted to pixel art without too much trouble. Or at least something like it. Susan Kare's Icons for the Macintosh SE come to mind too, but these are more symbolic/abstract.
Perhaps it will be inspiration for some distant audio-visual project.
I was just writing on lines about 8bitbusy's SDL clones of ft2 and pt2, and I stumbled on this repo of theirs today, which is a bit-accurate ft2 playback engine:
In my lines post, I wasn't sure how much attention was put into sound accuracy. Seeing this project by the same author, I'm convinced it's probably pretty good (or at least consciously considered.)
looking for writing that goes beyond "code of conduct" (aka peace keeping) and more towards healthy community building.
getting a bunch of people together and saying "don't be jerks" doesn't make a strong or interesting community--- but the internet is in such a horrifying state that we've very much set the bar this low.
A collection of micro-scores for a recording project I'm working on with a friend.
We're each making two recordings of the actions described. Each action has a sync point we'll use to line the recordings up. Once layered & sequenced, they become a score for further instrumental recordings... #theWorkshop
Anybody using Bela? - www.bela.io - augmented instruments/hackable instruments (UK).
Am interested in a user community on the fediverse.
Had those boards for 2 years before i started using them in 2020. Great extension to building #diyinstruments. I use #puredata - supported as well are #supercollider, c++, #faust and some #csound.
Active user community.
I am not working for them.
P.S.: Descriptive soundfile for box below not present, as it plays, what you program into it.
unix-style text search question/help
I want to begin using command line utilities to query a directory of markdown files for things like: a) the number of instances of a given string, b) the number of files with one or more instances of a given string, c) a # of chars after a given string in a given file, among others. I know sed/awk/grep may be a place to start but I'm not sure how to narrow that set of features to the above use case. Any help/direction on some useful concepts or tools?

The reverse operation of converting clocks to phasor signals is also interesting to me. This problem is a bit more complicated, and comes with many caveats.
The ideal implementation would allow phasors to be converted to ticks, to be converted back to phasors again, with the relative phase being preserved.
Without knowing the initial tempo of the incoming clock, some sort of delay would have to be introduced. To keep things in phase, even more delay would have to be added. Not a total dealbreaker, just a complication to consider.
Sound, music, computers, etc.
