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.
In the last blog post, we saw the individual effect of each stage of the Boss MT2 pedal. But with all these effects impacting each other, what is the final find of spectrum that we get?
In the previous entry in this series, we saw the effect of the gyrator in a circuit. Now we can analyse each stage individually.
It’s a question that is all the rage at the moment. It seems that there is a huge pick-up in questions of racism in all aspects of our life. Maths has been impacted (some people even saying that requiring the right answer is racism, but this is over the top!) and so does now music.
I also had some epiphany myself while reading books on white supremacy last year, but no work on the subject can be considered done after one step. It’s a tough journey. So why music theory and white supremacy put together felt so wrong to me?
MTB is a variation of the MT2 plugin geared towards the bass. The cut frequencies for the different filters are lowered to match the bass frequencies better. As such, MTB spills less in high frequencies than MT2. Not that MT2 cannot be used for the bass if that’s the sound you are looking for!
This plugin requires the universal runtime on Windows, which is automatically deployed with Windows update (see this discussion on the JUCE forum). If you don’t have it installed, please check Microsoft website.
I started CrossFit some time before the pandemic, and I read lots of people saying that exercising is good for your health, that our ancestors were fitter than we are and all sorts of dogmas. When I heard about this book, it looked like it was about finding a balance and shedding the light on what our ancestors really were. When we try to find the truth about some dogmas, I’m always interested.
