We’re in the 21st century and we have the worst sound that we’ve ever had. It’s worse than a 78 [rpm record]. What happened?
Reblogged from Trust Me I’m a Scientist: Take Our Audio Poll: Do We Need Higher Definition Sound?
I do need some more testers with SSE1 compatible systems (e.g. old AMD Athlon series) – if you can perform some tests for me with a prepared Density mkII version please drop me a short comment here with your email.
Just a short update on whats going on with some already reported issues concerning Density mkII (released around two weeks ago):
The current plan is to release a 2.0.1 bugfix release to end of September containing whats fixed and stable then.
While working on the Density overall re-design I was working extensively on the audio engine as well but just for one single reason: The one thing I was missing in the original design was to have some more “responsive” gain riding possibilities but without the usual tradeoff of introducing more distortion or compromising the transparency. And (unsurprisingly) that turned out to be not that easy.
Most people have no idea where probably most “development time” is actually spent: it’s in the audio listening tests and not the coding.
for development and testing purposes I need some further raw and unprocessed good made recording samples (short loops / snippets are ok). Mainly drums, bass or vocal stuff.
Just drop a note here if you want to support me.
Thanks in advance!
I’m now taking some longer time for research and development which is actually the job I really like the most. Digging into some new DSP papers, drawing new circuit concept ideas and setting up some code for a proof of concept – thats almost like vacation to me. I’m already into some interesting new work in the area of saturation but there is another thing which is itching me more and more since a while. [Read more…]
If you are using one of my plug-ins and are suffering from long loading times while inserting it or while loading a project in your sequencer then please get in touch with me.
I would like you to perform some testing then and maybe I can sort that out. Just drop me a comment to this post with a proper eMail address (won’t displayed or used elsewhere of course).
