Hey folks! My EP is live! Yknow, the one I've been working on on stream? Yeah that one! I'm super super proud of the way this one turned out, its by far some of the best work I've ever done!

Tune in for some #house, #techno, and #lofi sounds! New #music straight to your earholes!

(boosts very very welcome!)

@cb Thanks! loving mastodon so far. I've actually been following your work for a while now over on instagram. I help organize North Coast Modular Collective. Sometime in the future, when we are doing events again, it would be cool, if your interested, to have you out to talk about your DIY modular + tidalcycles stuff!

@paul really nice! Love that fold4wrap5 style timewarp

Deerhoof's new record "Actually You Can" came out as a suprise today. I thought I was going to have to wait until october 22 to hear it. I'm so happy I could scream.

We haven't officially announced this yet, but @rek and I have just founded the Resilience Research Society(NPO). We'll use this as a way to organize our research and findings around the topics of #permacomputing, #seasteading, and other related topics.


@paul I would love to hear an account of your compositional process, at least for some section of the song, and how it relates to your tools. For example: "I started with the bass line and I chose this synth algo and I compiled it and liked the sound but not the rhythm so I changed it to this, ect..."

@paul really natural sounding gliss and expression on that melody! Nice work!

@paul that's a great idea! GDB saved my butt once or twice but running it on the compiled plug in was tricky to set up. In theory, I should be able to make a CLI version as all the DSP logic is made of referentially transparent calls.

@paul great point. I sort of accidentally did this with a plugin I built earlier this year. I wanted to learn the DSP from scratch so I did all the important stuff off to the side in my own library that had no idea juce existed. If I have to, I could throw the ui away (which is juce) and still have all of my synth code untouched by the refactor. I think I'll do this all the time now, if I even use juce for the next one.

@paul its crossed my mind. I believe one version of it is gpl3 but should they pull the plug, plugin developers will have to choose between open sourcing their products (to comply with gpl) or reimplementing. I can't imagine that would be a wise move (to pull the plug) but it is PACE we are talking about.

Has anybody in the open source audio work considered the possibility that at any moment, PACE, the new owner of JUCE, could pull the rug on that project and seriously fragment the FOSS ecosystem?

drugs PSA 

(this is USA-specific advice)

if you are in a high-risk area for fentanyl (or other opioid) OD, consider seeing if you can get narcan from a drugstore or a harm reduction clinic (needle exchanges, etc); many places provide them for free with no prescription needed, sometimes you have to use your health insurance to get it, but having some around could literally save a life
