Instead of technologies, talk about practicalities. Instead of separating developers from users, have discussions about innards where anyone interested is invited to have a look. This isn't about making things more accessible to end users, but helping the practice of making software more culturally grounded and relevant, opening the windows to let out the bad air.

im on an iphone, does anyone know if there's a way to totally block a number? calls, texts, and voicemails... i've contacted my carrier already and it doesn't sound like they can do anything. feel free to boost

I had a brief period of my life where all I wanted to do was learn how to build an audio plugin and load it into a DAW (Renoise). I have a hard time relating to that person now. Anytime I think about audio plugin development now, I experience a wave of exhaustion.

I've given them plots and audio files.

I don't care what it is. I just want it turned off, if possible.

It's been a perfectly adequate DAC otherwise.

I'd like to take the time now to politely give AudioQuest a giant fuck you.

I write a highly detailed technical question to support, using proper terminology.

After weeks of pinging them, I get a response with things like:

"What you’re experiencing here is called latency and is usually due to the driver types and software commonly used with DAW / audio software."

"That implies that we are basically at the mercy of the operating system and your application."

"Our suggestion is to check if the software you are using can compensate for this or a third-party compatible driver that can hopefully reduce the latency."

Stop blaming others for your shitty hardware.

Finally got around to recording the output of my DAC.

Looks like a very aggressive peak limiter.

My definition of live coding:
Using an explainable representation
to explore and share unexplainable experiences,
by asking 'what if?'

They finally got back to me. They are telling me it's "latency" and that I need to check my software and OS settings.

Not a satisfying answer. I will show them my data...

These DACs all feature a thing called a "minimum phase fast rolloff filter" for a "more natural sound". Perhaps that could be causing the issue? Dunno.

I should also mention: I A/B'd this with my Scarlett Solo USB interface. Transients were not clipped there.

Show thread

No response from AudioQuest. So I went and bought the DragonFly Red, the next DAC up in the production line. Exact same weird transient issue on the test signal.

Calling it quits on these DACs. They seem pretty great for music listening as they give a nice strong signal, but for sound design and music production I cannot recommend.

This is so weird.

Progress: GestVM, Uxn, and Mnolth 

I modified uxnasm to write to a memory buffer instead of a file.

Lua is used to metaprogram the gesture (TAL) and the sound (LIL) in one pass via mnolth.

Old way requires 2 passes with 2 separate files:

uxnasm foo.tal foo.rom
gestvm foo.lil

New way is just one Lua file, with TAL/LIL code embedded as Lua strings, which is then run via the mnolth Lua interpreter:

mnolua foo.lua

I really like how the 13/8 groove in the original terminator theme was actually an accident that they just decided to keep in. It was supposed to be 12/8, but I guess someone bumped the drum machine or something.
