Re: COVID-19

Hi there! In other words we do not know much about how it goes at the WHO regarding this So then let's drop this open-source-check-the-code thing ? Which more and more seems like a dream regarding how the WHO operates ? Sorry but no. Single governments are commissioning studies to third parties, and...

Re: COVID-19

Thanks for the link about simulations. It pretty much goes about what simulations would be. Please note that the person who did states clearly that he is not an epidemiologist and that what is shown is a toy model. Yes, he covers only the basics and his models are meant to study the fundamentals of...

Re: COVID-19

Population proportions and conditions in which they live also does not matter at all. You have undoubtedly seen many times some of the conditions in which people live in China, in large cities as well as the countryside. Then a population of 1.5 billion is the same as say, the population of Iceland...

Re: COVID-19

But then, why would a mainstream US TV media take footage of a busy hospital in Italy from the 22nd to pretend this was int he US on the 25th? With TV footage to support the evidence. Because Italy on the 22nd will be the USA in a few weeks from the 22nd. This is how epidemics grow, that is what I ...

Re: COVID-19

Noahsark Right, I have been trying to keep away from this thread as this illness claimed the life of 3 people I know, and killed 25 people a day in my home town in Italy in the last 2 weeks. Friends of mine in the healthcare system are working mad shifts and the army has been employed to set up fie...

Re: general guidance with CPU governors, etc

I also have TLP installed (bad idea?) TLP is pretty good, I have been using it for years. What you describe though seems to suggest that TLP might be configured to crank the performance up to full whack when your laptop is on AC which, to the best of my knowledge, I do not think is the default beha...

Re: I just want a stable Linux desktop to develop and run Faust programs

Faust- I just used one of the included examples. I hadn't even looked at the code before, I just built it. Says it's using a deprecated library. Not sure if anything at all will change, but try this: dm = library("demos.lib"); process = dm.reverse_echo_demo(3); It uses a recent demo. Also, try to c...

Re: I just want a stable Linux desktop to develop and run Faust programs

Anyway back to my Macbook Pro, I just used QJackctl and then made a couple Faust programs using the faust2jaqt compiler. Jack seems to run OK for a little while and then it goes off a cliff with XRUNs and glitches. This is just running a simple delay program. The CPU meter (I think I have a 4-core ...

Re: Studio 1337 3.3 for free!

Haha! So, come on: show us the source code for Ubuntu Studio or any of these OSes that are also being sold! As other have pointed out, it is easy to get the Source Code either through Launchapd or apt. For example, here how to get the Kernel source code: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/SourceCode An...

Re: Alternative programming paradigms for music software

I think that the use of a particular paradigm with a particular set of capabilities is useful when those capabilities are particularly compelling for the problem at hand. Forcing a paradigm that does not fit the data and the problem is not wise. I am not familiar with the project you mention, but I ...

Re: Neural networks and machine learning for music applications

Maybe mixing and mastering? Not to do all the job, but to automatize all the most tedious tasks. Like: "AI, please set the project up when I brew my tea, then I will be back tacking care of the details". It would also be cool to "describe" to a plugin what you are after, like: "AI, I want a warm fuz...

Modelling Acoustics with Open Source Software: The Series

Hey guys! Maybe not exactly music, for now, but definitely Linux and definitely open source. Some time ago I started publishing articles on my Blog about modelling Acoustics with Open Source software. I haven't been very active for a long time there. Then I decided to move my Blog from Worpress to G...
