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?

I’m happy to announce the update of SD1 and a new release of TS9 based on the Audio Toolkit and JUCE. It is available on Windows (VST3) and macOS (min. 10.11, x86_64 and ARM64) in different formats.

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.

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?

I’m happy to announce the release of ATK MTB based on the Audio Toolkit and JUCE. It is available on Windows (VST3) and macOS (min. 10.11, x86_64 and ARM64) in different formats.

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.
