I loved X-COM: UFO Defense. OK, I played the second installment, but I loved the game. So when I saw on Kickstarter a book on the game designer of the game, I jumped at it.
I’m please to announce an update to my preamplifiers. They have been ported to use JUCE instead of WD-OL which will help rebuilding them more easily.
The MacOS version will be out soon (hopefully) while I sort out hardware issues!
None of my plugins have demo tracks, and this changes today. I made a few very crude guitar tracks, and bear with me, as I’m still just learning the guitar!
Amazon is a dividing topic. Fantastic company in terms of accomplishments, and then stories of employees bad treatment. Efficient management, but also gridding people. From the 14 principles, how does it end up with Jeff Bezos buying a mega yacht, him, the prince of frugality.
Climate change is a problem that we have to solve for our children’s sake. The problem is how. When Bill Gates is talking about addressing the issue, it’s interesting because he is part of the problem and he is known to prefer doing things on his own without care about the political aspects. Is it a good thing for climate change or not?
As I’m starting my journey in Rust land, I was curious aout game engines, which is why I started reading this book. On top, I have a keen interest on electronics and machine learning, so all boxes were ticked here.
Rust has been all the hype for some years now in the compiled space. As a new revision of this book is about to get out, I managed to get my hand on the first revision to see how I could learn Rust with it.
SD1 is a full rewrite of one of my first plugins with the help of Audio ToolKit Modelling. It allowed me for a closer match with the original circuit without having to optimize the equations myself.
TS9 is a Patreon-only plugin, although the source is freely available. The same technology was used to emulate the drive and tone-control as what was used for SD1. The sound is similar yet different.
I’m a huge fan of home automation. I started studying the KNX standard more than a decade ago, and I wanted to automated everything in my home. One day.
In the last decade, we saw the apparition of lots of new standards, not just for lighting and heating, but also for everything else. Unfortunately, it’s rarely compatible with each other. I saw a few projects int he fast, and recently saw HomeAssistant in an article, and decided to try it.
There are a few names in game design that I recognize, and Sid Meier is definitely in the top 3 for me. I remember the name from the first Civilization, and it was just awesome. So what about a book on his life? Sign me in.
