Will I *actually* attempt looptober this year? I have no reasonable excuse not to

I finally caved and bought both Midi2Guitar IAPs and it’s really pretty amazing. Guitar into iPad into guitar2midi into Mellotron into bleass Shimmer into an enormous Pro-R reverb and back out and you’re an instant prog/ambient musician.

Also, I don’t think I ever followed up the Earthquaker Devices Aqueduct, but I did wind up getting one a while back and it is **fantastic** for drone/pad type stuff, set it to a slow and shallow wobble and it adds so much subtle texture

Shit, I just thought of a piece of gear I Can’t Live Without: an old school patch bay for my pedalboard

Plugging/unplugging/moving/reconfiguring is such bullshit when I could just have a bank of neatly numbered inputs and outputs to connect at will like an old timey telephone operator

I found those patch cables the other day, In the pocket of a jacket I hadn’t worn since fetching them from the mailbox

Don’t worry, I’ve already lost track of them again

This is remarkable:

...and it's got me thinking about taking the stuff I learned on my Tic-80 project and re-implementing it as a C64/SID program (written in C, I am not fanatic enough to attempt such a thing as my first foray into 6502 assembly in ~33 years)

My ADHD has been rewarded! I had been researching various soldering irons and kept coming back to the Pinecil, which was out of stock, then I got distracted by other shiny things. I looked again just now and Pinecil is back in stock, so I jumped on one. Armed with decent tools, maybe this will be the long dark winter I get some traction with diy electronics

woohoo, we have a release 🥳

master_me is a mastering plugin for live streaming, podcasts and internet radio stations.

free & open source :rainbow_heart:

github.com/trummerschlunk/mast

I have been developing this for the last 6 months and with the help of many contributors, it's finally ready. Can't believe how much I learned...

Thanks to @falktx @magnetophon @x42 @jkbd the faust community

I stopped working on this project at the worst possible time ~10 months ago; I had just done a major refactoring of my player clock logic but I had not gotten the everything else working with the new clock yet, and now I don't really remember how *anything* works.

It's coming back a little as I read through the code and comments I left for my future self, but it's going to take a dedicated effort (and re-learning Lua) to wrap my head back around this thing

Well heck, I got a check in the mail for the not-so-much-gifted-as-dumped-on-me old classical guitar I consigned a couple of months ago. Glad to have that object out of my life after… probably 10-15 years? During which I never once played it. it had bad energy for the person who gave it to me and bad energy for me because of that person

Remembered Cliff Martinez’ score for Kafka (1991) and now I’m wondering about zithers :oh_no:

Just found this website with a bunch of schematics and information about DIYing audio electronics. Lots of useful information for people building synths or guitar pedals.

Poked around my local music store and didn’t get into any trouble, so I’ve got that going for me
