I published a new version 2.46.0, with a lot of bug fixes and improvements for FScape.

There is a cool new workspace in the downloads ( archive.org/download/Mellite ) for an Impulse Response measuring tool (Impulse-1.2.0.mllt.zip). I want to add a video run through for that soon, but hopefully it's not too difficult to run in any case.

If you go to the sound file below "{hhr 200329}" (right hand) on researchcatalogue.net/view/711 , that's rendered with one binaural position for each of the eight channels (background ambience file is a stereo recording, not encoded). Best to skip 2 minutes into the file for headphones impression.

v2.45.0 is published. I have been mainly working on the Control/Act languages, as I implement two new installations with them, finding problems and missing bits.

Thinking of making another video or text tutorial soon. Any ideas or topics that I should cover?

Determining regions in rendered sounds based on loudness contour (lots of FScape debugging as a "fun" side activity)

Some advances in developing the sound installation 'Through Segments' with a layer running on a Pi 4.

Definitely slower than on the laptop, but no real issues so far. Few xruns with binaural simulation and no jack params adjusted yet, so I'm fairly optimistic.

Have to run for long time to see if there are any memory leaks or such.

In 2011, I was pencilling around to understand how confluently persistent data structures work.

now we are
transparent,
because it solves something.
the boundary of bridging
spacetime
runs alongside us and
the objects that we
take in possession. if
I envelop an orb or a
box, it belongs
to me, passes over
into my spacetime,
becomes transparent with me
against those who "stay on".

"Sorting" resonances by creating a complete graph with edges weights of Pearson correlation coefficients from spectral magnitudes, and applying a TSP algorithm (Lin-Kernighan, simply version without backtracking). Yields an interesting "endless walk".

… it also means you can re-use the same stream multiple times, say on multiple objects in a timeline, or multiple restarts of a proc, and it will keep going where it was left. Or use it concurrently between processes. I think this expressivity was prior only available in SuperCollider patterns.

Working on adding a `Stream` object to Mellite.

Unlike `Pattern` which is an immutable program yielding a stream in memory, now you can create streams that maintain their state in the workspace. E.g., you can have counters or random walks or more complex programs that always resume where you left them. Think of a `drunk` object in Pd/Max, only that if you open your patcher again, it resumes from its last position. I think it will be a very interesting composition element for installations.

I'm adding a Histogram UGen to FScape; such a simple mechanism, just throw stuff into buckets and count… I will need this to look at the distribution of spectral features of a microphone signal.

Sometimes I wish I had more input on what building blocks other people would need, but I guess that's ok.

The plot shows a 17-bin histogram fed with a sine oscillator, and the histogram being flushed every ten steps.

dreams 

In terms of their change, they resemble the algorithmic; changes happen both discrete (separated) and under discretion (tacit). E.g. "the hotel room, now dorm room, now outside field exposed to rain." It is not clear whether this is an essential property of the dream, or it belongs to the mode of their recall, which is challenged with verbalisation, but there are cases that indicate the essential: "I notice the fundamental error – the room; I must have confused it, it unnoticably changed."

Lastest Raspbian Buster comes with JDK 11, QJackCtl, SuperCollider 3.10.0 preinstalled; Mellite universal download was running out of the box πŸŽ‰

Seems much more powerful than the Pi 3, my bet is the 4 GB RAM are a significant point here with running the JDK app. So far all smooth βœ”οΈ
