ATK is updated to 1.4.0 with new features and optimizations. It is also now compiled on Travis-CI: https://travis-ci.org/mbrucher/AudioTK/branches.
While following a discussion on KVR, I thought about adding support for denormals handling in Audio Toolkit

I have now some time to play with this baby:
The CPU may not be blazingly fast, but I hope I can still do something with it. The goal of this series will be to try different algorithms and see how they behave on the platform.

I’ve started working on porting some Python libraries to Python3, but I required using an old Visual Studio (2012) for which there is no Python3 version. In the end, I tried following this tutorial. The issue with the tutorial is that you are downloading the externals by hand. It is actually simpler to call get_externals.bat from the PCBuild folder.
Be aware that the solution is a little bit flawed. pylauncher is built in win32 mode in Release instead of x64. This has an impact on deployment.
Once this is done, I had to deploy the build to a proper location so that it is self contained. I inspired myself heavily from another tutorial by the same author, only adding 64 bits support in this gist.
Once this was done, time to build Boost.Python! To start, just compile bjam the usual way, don’t add Python options on the command line, this will utterly fail in Boost.Build. Then add in user-config.jam the following lines (with the proper folders):
using python : 3.4 : D:/Tools/Python-3.4.5/_INSTALL/python.exe : D:/Tools/Python-3.4.5/_INSTALL/include : D:/Tools/Python-3.4.5/_INSTALL/libs ;
This should build the debug and release mode with this line:
.\b2 --with-python --layout=versioned toolset=msvc-11.0 link=shared stage address-model=64
.\b2 --with-python --layout=versioned toolset=msvc-11.0 link=shared stage address-model=64 python-debugging=on
I’m happy to announce the release of a mono transient splitter based on the Audio Toolkit. They are available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.11) in different formats.
After my transient shaper, some people told me it would be nice to have a splitter: split the signal in two tracks, one with the transient, another with the sustain. For instance, it would be interesting to apply a different distortion on both signals.
There are so many different distortion/overdrive/fuzz guitar pedals, and some have a better reputation than other. Two of them have a reputation of being closed (one copied on the other), and I already explained how one of these could be modeled (and I have a plugin with it!). So let’s work on comparing the SD1 and the TS9.

I’m currently considering whether I should do more posts on preamps modeling or just keep implementing filters/plugins. Of course, it’s not one or the other, there are different options in this poll:
So the idea is to ask my readers what they actually want. I can explain how the new triodes filters are implemented, how they behave, but I can also add new filters in Audio Toolkit (based on different preamp and amp stages, dedicated to guitars, bass, other instruments), try to optimize them, and finally I can include them in new plugins that could be used by users. Or I can do something completely different.
So if you have any ideas, feel free to say so!
