Re: Rust for audio

Oh, man... That holy wars just steal our time which we could spend developing the software which solves specific problems. That's why it doesn't matter. I agree on principle and for 99% of languages out there, however my thread carefully compared Rust and C++20 for these (I think valid) reasons: 1)...

Re: Rust for audio

I also wanted to share the Carp language, which is a statically typed Lisp written in Haskell explicitly designed for realtime performance:

https://github.com/carp-lang/Carp

It can seamlessly call C code so it should be ready for real-world LV2 plugins.

Re: Rust for audio

I'm really sad that it forces you to use a garbage collector D no longer forces you to use the garbage collector. I don't know how long this has been the case, because I just barely started learning it this year, but if you are willing to embrace some constraints , you can optionally compile your c...

Re: Rust for audio

I don't know much about Rust, but I'm curious to hear how it goes for you as you learn more. Right now I'm experimenting with writing a plugin in D, using Dplug from the Auburn Sounds developer. So far I'm liking D a lot, in that it's a nice system language without all of the historical baggage of ...

Rust for audio

I am currently studying Rust and I like it a lot! I like the syntax, not "beautiful" in any sense but it can easily be picked up by people who know C++ and OCaml, Scala or Haskell; I think that Rust is pretty clean and benefited a lot from not having to be backward compatible with C and older versio...

Re: What is your favorite female vocalist?

Lots of good singers mentioned, I figured I should go with an underrated one: Shlomit Levi.

Here's the idea above with a couple of variations on the fonts. The size difference is subtle, but I think enough to capture the idea. The other versions are one more exaggerated and a test with the serif to mark the capital letters in another way.
The biggest one works for me!

Re: Real time audio programming (with RtAudio)

I don't have that book but it's been on my reading list for a lot of time. If only I could buy a DRM-free ebook version of it! RtAudio is used a lot but depending on what you want to achieve, you might pick something else. If you are interested in developing plugins (instruments and effects), maybe ...

Re: VCVRack modules as LV2 plugins

Where is the 173 number from, is that the number in the manifest on that repo? I'm sure there are a lot, lot more than that. Rack's modules system is perhaps a little confusing, there are plugins which are really suites or collections of modules from a developer, and there are modules which are the...

VCVRack modules as LV2 plugins

VCVRack is free software but it developed its own module API rather than use LV2. As a consequence of that, there is now a wealth of libre audio plugins which can't be used elsewhere - 173 according to the official VCVRack library [1]. I think it would be great if those could be used in a modular se...

Re: Hello from Texas

Thanks, Basslint. The 70s thing could be said of a lot of bands of that era, but when I looked at my list, Heart's peer groups managed to make music that I enjoy from the Eighties. Yes, King Crimson, Queen, Pink Floyd all have Eighties music I like, but not so much with Heart. Oh, well. That remind...

Re: New (again) - from Australia

It's great that anything I could possibly want to do with music, I can do on Linux. All my hardware just works out of the box (or out of the dusty corner in my case hah). Wise words: if everyone thought it this way, there would be fewer people making excuses to justify their use of popular propriet...

Re: A music video coded in Go

Nice idea! Although I think there are languages better suited for this than Go, which has a C-style syntax. Perhaps a Lisp!

Re: New MusE logo

I @ancares and welcome! I personally think the logo is great and recognizable; the only thing you could do is to spell MUSE as MusE, because in this case the capital M and E are already a distinctive mark of sort.
