in , applying "sometimes rev" (or other randomly applied filters) to sequenced melodies or chords works great

but it sounds even better over sequenced beats

My bandmate and I just put together a little collection of wintry tunes here:

I hope you like autotune!

I never made an here, it's time!

Currently a PhD student (officially in literature), I'm interested in publishing processes: lightweight markup languages, single source publishing, structuring, web technologies hacked for publishing and other stuff. The questions of technology use are at the core of my research, I try to share my readings and my watch here but most often directly on my website:

I write mostly in French, but I read and exchange in English :)

I'm on Mastodon since 2017 but I arrived on a few months ago, thanks to @lurk for the welcome!

Heya! My name is Daniel, I'm kind of terrible at introductions but I make music and write on occasion. This is my latest EP if you want to check it out ❤️

A re-

Hi, I'm Paul. I'm a computer musician and researcher, currently thinking about lyricism what it means for a computer to sing. I explore quirky vocal synthesis DSP algorithms and try to control them in interesting ways.

As a musician-turned-programmer, one of the things I try to do is build resources for topics related to audio programming and DSP that I wish I had when I was starting out. My aim is to empower digital musicians to "dig in" more and craft their own toys and tools for their work.

I also bake a lot. Expect many pictures of bread and croissants here, among other things.

Hello! I'm new here, so here's my .

I'm a career software geek. I spend my fun time playing with , , and ,
usually not all at once. I'm more focused on music at the moment, modular synthesizers in particular. I'm active in the Colorado Modular Synth Society. I'm also playing around a bit with visualizations using Hydra, mostly for creating videos to accompany my music. Maybe someday I'll have something significant to show.

Life is busy right now, and I am easily distracted, so I plan to lurk awhile.

Disquiet Junto Project 0539: Control Breath
The Assignment: Let your slow breathing guide a piece of music.

Step 1: You’re going to record a piece of music in which not just the pace but the shape of your breathing will provide the foundation. Plan to do so with slow breathing.

Step 2: Spend some time just breathing, and paying attention to the breath. Locate a pace that is comfortable to you

Step 3: Best you can, record yourself breathing. It might take time to get the sound right. Record at least a few minutes.

Step 4: Listen back to the breathing you recorded in Step 3.

Step 5: Make a piece of music using the recording from Step 3. Retain the recording in your new piece of music. The sound of you breathing doesn’t need to be prominent, but it should both provide the shape and pace of your work, and at least occasionally be audible.


Deadline: This project’s deadline is the end of the day Monday, May 2, 2022, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

@auritech there are so many ways to organize this sort of thing, and I think its super dependent on style and what gives you joy as a performer. The best thing I can recommend is a lot of experimentation. For me, I found it was helpful to start things off with my set overly automated and then figure out what I found myself wanting to change live. Gradually I removed some pieces of automation as I found that song structure was something I wanted to be expressive with. For context, my set involved manipulation of a lot of preset patterns on drum machines. Later when I started playing with a friend I found improvisation at a smaller scale more fun. Have fun playing live!

New folks, please post your introductions so we know who you are and can boost !

A sincere tip for longtime fediverse people who would like their friends to stick around here longer than a week:

If you're on Mastodon or Hometown, you can click the "bell" icon in the profile of someone you follow. This will make it so that every time they post, it will appear in your notifications like an "@". I am enabling this temporarily for friends so that I remember to interact with them. This is important for making this place feel more lively and helps people stick around!

new #introductions

I'm Jasmine (they/them/theirs) and I'm a PhD Candidate in American Culture/Digital Studies at U of Michigan Ann Arbor. My dissertation is about the digital sector of the prison-industrial complex, neoliberalism + racial capitalism, and the movement to abolish prisons, tracing its emergent antagonisms towards tech, AI, and Silicon Valley broadly.

I post a lot about grad student unions, University of Michigan news (usually the bad stuff), and getting #CopsOffCampus.

the pc machine keeps restarting by itself randomly every few hours more or less. like pressing a hard reset button. how to check hardware and where to start? it's a recent Ubuntu #Linux system.

#help plz boost :boost_anim_vanilla:

@yaxu my old laptop bit the dust in september and I replaced it with a framework. I'm loving it so far. I hope to run this machine for a very long time. (hopefully its as repairable as it was meant to be)

This has been another lovely fediverse experience. Thank you to all who boosted and provided advice. I can't wait to dig into some of this later this week!

@paul @freakazoid I feel like this area is sort of like reverb in this way (guarded trade secrets). That's partially why I'm interested lol. Thanks for the research pointers! Those are useful search terms. Also, really cool idea about using linear predictive coding. Any resources you would recommend for learning how to implement that?

@luka had no clue it was there! For some reason I limited my search to VST plugins that were cross platform. I think looking over the source code will teach me a ton of what I want to know. Thanks!

Anyone here know any good resources for learning his pitch correction works? It feels like there is a lack of open source autotune and I want to set about correcting that.

A bit last minute, but I've just put this up for algorave's tenth birthday next week.. Please contribute a ten minute performance!
