Announcement: Audio TK 2.2.0

ATK is updated to 2.2.0 with the major introduction of vectorized filters. This means that some filters (EQ for now) can use vectorization for maximum performance. More filters will be introduced later as well as the Python support. Vector lanes of size 4 and 8 are supported as well as instruction sets from SSE2 to AVX512.

This is also the first major release that officially supports the JUCE framework. This means that ATK can be added as modules (directly source code without requiring any binaries) in the Projucer. The caveat is that SIMD filters are not available in this configuration due to the requirement for CMake support to build the SIMD filters.

Announcement: Audio TK 2.1.0

ATK is updated to 2.1.0 with a major refactoring of the Python wrappers and extensive testing of them. New filters were also added to support more complex pipelines (mute/solo and circular buffers for real-time spectrum displays) and Audio ToolKit provies now a CMake configuration file for easier integration in CMake projects.

Book review: OpenGL Data Visualization Cookbook

This review will actually be quite quick: I haven’t finished the book and I won’t finish it.

The book was published in August 2015 and is based on OpenGL < 3. The authors may sometimes say that you can use shaders to do better, but the fact is that if you want to execute the code they propose, you need to use the backward compatibility layer, if it's available. OpenGL was published almost a decade ago, I can't understand why in 2015 two guys decided that a new book on scientific visualization should use an API that was deprecated a long time ago. What a waste of time. [amazon_enhanced asin="1782169725" /][amazon_enhanced asin="B01FGMWRO8" /]

Book review: Getting Started With JUCE

After the announce of JUCE 5 release, I played a little bit with it, and then decided to read the only book on JUCE. It’s outdated and tackles JUCE 2.1.2. But who knows, it may be a gem?
