1522 5 Simple steps to secure TT-RSS reader
secure tt-rss, tt-rss security 5 Simple steps to secure TT-RSS reader July 27, 2015 by Anand Leave a Comment secure-tt-rss-ft Share: share htpcBeginner We recently presented Tiny Tiny RSS to you as a great alternative to Google reader, which is one more way you can extend the functionality of your home server or your hosting space. Hopefully, you already exported your data from Google Reader. In this post, we will show you how to secure TT-RSS reader to prevent unauthorized access. Tiny Tiny RSS is an open source web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) reader and aggregator, designed to allow you to read news from any location, while feeling as close to a real desktop application as possible. As we previously explained, it makes an ideal candidate to replace Google Reader. While there are services like Feedly and Newsblur grabbing the crowd Google Reader, which some of you may prefer, there are a group of people who would like to run a RSS reader on their own server and keep things private. Assuming that you have already installed Tiny Tiny RSS on your alternative to Google reader or hosting space, we will now show you how to secure TT-RSS reader. Secure TT-RSS Reader One of the main reasons to move to an RSS aggregator like TT-RSS is maintaining your privacy. So if you do not secure TT-RSS reader well you are not only making your data available public but also making your system vulnerable to potential attacks. Choosing a strong username and password while setting your TT-RSS is the first basic thing that you can do to secure TT-RSS reader. Listed below are few more ways you can increase TT-RSS reader’s security. 1. Rename TT-RSS Folder One of the first lines of defense is to not use tt-rss in your URL to access your TT-RSS reader. To do this on your hosting account, use a folder name other than tt-rss while installing TT-RSS. On your Linux home server, edit /etc/tt-rss/apache.conf and change the first /tt-rss to something else. An example is shown below. TT-RSS Rename URL TT-RSS Rename URL After making the change, restart your TT-RSS and Apache to apply the changes: sudo service tt-rss restart sudo serivce apache2 reload Your TT-RSS reader is now available through the new URL (example: http://mydomain.com/myreader) only. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 2. Enable SSL Accessing TT-RSS through http sends all information as unencrypted data. This could mean less privacy due to potential sniffing. The solution is to encrypt the data during transfer, which makes sniffing by hackers harder. To enable and enforce HTTPS access on Linux servers with Apache, install the following run-time libraries: sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8 libpam0g openssl Restart your Apache server as shown above. You should now be able to access your TT-RSS reader with HTTPS. Note that you may have to have a SSL certificate generated. Refer to Apache documentation if you want to generate your own certificate. By default, the system will install self-signed certificates for you. These certificates are likely to raise warnings when you point your browser to the site. 3. Disable Single User Mode By default the single user mode is already disabled (in /etc/tt-rss/config.php). Enabling single user mode will also disable TT-RSS login system. Therefore, keep the single user mode disabled. Disable Single User Mode Disable Single User Mode A better way to make it a single user system is by limiting the number of registrations to 1 as described below. For whatever reason, you still want to enable single user mode, make sure you implement Apache Authentication method described below. 4. Self Registrations Self registrations allow a visitor to register themselves, which could reduce TT-RSS security. If your TT-RSS will be for personal use only, then you may want to disable user registration by setting “ENABLE_REGISTRATION” to “false”. TT-RSS Self Registrations TT-RSS Self Registrations To further secure TT-RSS Reader, uou may also want to change “REG_MAX_USERS” to “1” to make your account the only account on TT-RSS. asus n66uASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router asus n66u reviewsFind out why it is rated the best wireless router in its class. 5. Apache Authentication Last but not the least, enable Authentication. This is even more important if you have enabled “Single User Mode” describe above. Every time you access TT-RSS, you will be asked for a username and password as shown in the picture below: Secure TT-RSS Reader On your hosting account this equivalent to password protecting a directory, in this case the TT-RSS directory. To do this on your Ubuntu server, you will have to create a .htpasswd file. More information is available in Apache documentation. But the easiest way to achieve this is to use one of the htpasswd generators available online. After you enter the username and password two code blocks will be generated. Copy the contents of the .htpasswd code block and save it to /etc/apache2/.htpasswd_ttrss. Next, copy the contents of the .htaccess code block and add it to /etc/tt-rss/apache.conf as shown below: TT-RSS Apache Authentication TT-RSS Apache Authentication Save and exit. Restart both TT-RSS and Apache previous shown above. You should be prompted for a password every time you try to access TT-RSS. Some may think that this double authentication method is an extra inconvenience. But I would rather be safe than sorry. Go ahead, secure Tiny Tiny RSS Reader and enjoy reading articles on your private secure RSS Reader.

1517 THE MUTANT MACHINE Dynamic Analog Percussion Engine
MICROCONTROLLER FREE ANALOG PERCUSSION SYNTHESIS unique Inverter Core oscillators form the MEMBRANE. Each analog oscillator has three waveforms to select from capable of synthesizing everything from heavy-hitting bassdrums to classic 909-style snares and other complex timbres modular design gives the Machine many auxiliary purposes, great for modular sound design of many varieties, and not just percussion the SNAPPY section is comprised of a voltage controlled noise oscillator, for modelling the noisy part of drum timbres both MEMBRANE and SNAPPY elements have an external input for replacing the built-in sound sources, opening up many avenues of possibility 13 control voltage and audio inputs, for a fully modular drum experience 7 audio and CV/gate outputs for maximum integration with other modules dedicated outputs for each WAVE and NOISE oscillator mean you can use the Machine as a complex VCO in your system, when not synthesizing percussion WAVEFORM SCANNING FEATURE GENERATES COMPLEX TIMBRES the MEMBRANE’s waveforms can be scanned through automatically by the wavescanner’s voltage controlled clock generator, or an external clock or VCO can be used SCAN FREQ CV forms a unique form of timbre control, making the Machine act like a complex oscillator at its WAVES output the ENABLE input allows you to gate the wavescanner on and off with a CV or gate signal ARCHITECTURE OF THE MACHINE The Mutant Machine is a dynamic analog instrument capable of generating a wide palette of sounds, ranging from various forms of analog percussion to complex drones and oscillations. To achieve this, the Machine features two synthesis sections which are summed together at the final output: MEMBRANE and SNAPPY. Like the other Mutant Drums, the MEMBRANE and SNAPPY circuits began their mutation as classic analog percussion techniques and have been reimagined for 21st century modular synthesis. The MEMBRANE forms the main body of the sound by way of two analog VCOs, and the SNAPPY section further adds to the timbre by contributing noisy elements to the mix. A noisy CLICK which occurs at the beginning of the SNAPPY sound can have its volume adjusted independent of the main decaying SNAPPY texture. The waveforms which make up the MEMBRANE can be selected manually by button press, or the WAVESCANNER can be used to automatically scan through the available analog waveforms. By modulating the frequency through which waves are scanned, unique, complex sounds are created. Experimentation is encouraged by the many modulation inputs and outputs available to you. The Machine features 8 CV and gate inputs for modulation as well as two external audio inputs, for bringing other modules into the Machine’s core. There are many audio outputs for maximum versatility, allowing you to use the Machine to create drones and alien timbres for use elsewhere in the modular analog system.

1502 Phone-Reluctant Introverts, There is Nothing Wrong With You
As I sit down to write this blog post there is the dreaded sound of a prolonged vibration as my phone skids, bouncing and sporadically across my desk. This is perfectly ideal and ironic distraction that actually befits the very thing I am thinking about and from which it is distracting me
 Itself! I have always had an absolute detest for talking on the phone. And I’ll say now that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the person at the other end, I just find it a horrible tool for communicating with. Phone Box I think I probably am, and always have been worse than most people when it comes to using the phone (in the traditional sense, ie speaking to people) but if you can identify with any of this then read on. If you’re thinking, “what are you on about, I love the phone” then you’ll probably just get confused, but if you also have friends who ‘never answer the phone’ then this might help you to understand them a bit better. I can’t sum it up any better than Sophia Dembling in her article, 9 Signs that You Might Be an Introvert:

1386 Retro Synth Ads: Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88, Keyboard 1982
Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88 drum machine 1-page advertisement from page 67 in Keyboard Magazine August 1982. Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about this ad. There just seems to be a lot going on. For example, am I supposed to know who "The Rhythm Section" is? The fact that they include themselves in an already long ad title suggests they must be some kind of a big deal. And then you find their name again in the bottom left-hand corner: "The SR-88. Another innovative product from The Rhythm Section by Sound Master Distributed exclusively by JTG of Nashville." So, let me get this straight. JTG of Nashville is the distributor of the SR-88 which was created by The Rhythm Section which is somehow owned or operated by Sound Master. That is waaaaay to much information. Sounds like something political is going on there, and readers unfortunately get stuck in the middle of it. There also seems to be a lot of ad-copy which actually doesn t give me much information. Reason #4 gives readers the most info including instant stop/start, variable tone and output switches, and a write/play mode indicator. The most I glean out of the four other reasons put together is: 16 rhythms, clock pulse and a price of under $200. The actual specs that are probably most important to potential buyers are inexplicably shoved into the bottom right-hand corner. Luckily for me, there are a few resources on the Web with more information about this beast. Unluckily for blog readers, as soon as I started looking for more info, I got swept up in a certain SR-88/Boss DR-55 controversy. Comparing the SR-88 and Boss DR-55 One of the first Web sites I hit while looking for info on the SR-88 was Dubsounds.com. The site includes a great little write-up on the SR-88, but, more interesting was finding out about a little controversy about whether the SR-88 or the very similar Boss DR-55 came out first. The two do seem mighty similar in functionality. For comparison purposes, I did a quick search on MATRIXSYNTH to find more photos. . A great photo of a gray SR-88 can be found in this December 2005 SR-88 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the less common, but definitely more cool, blue SR-88 can be seen in this January 2011 MATRIXSYNTH auction post. Comparing the two to the Amdek RMK-100 Interestingly, it s not just these two machines that look and function similarly. In this May 2009 MATRIXSYNTH SR-88 auction post commenter "PAC" notices: "Interesting. I have an Amdek RMK-100 (sold as kit), very similar!" Never heard of it, so I Googled "Amdek RMK-100" to see just how similar it was to both the DR-55 and the SR-88. Turns out (according to the Internet) that Amdek products were made by Boss/Roland back in 80s, and, not only that, but that the RMK-100 is actually the kit version of the Boss DR-55. Makes sense on why it would also be similar to the SR-88. I found an ebay auction for an Amdek RMK-100 going on right now with a great photo of the front panel (see below), and indeed it does share a lot with the DR-55 and SR-88 - but definitely not identical to either one. For example, it looks like the Amdek and SR-88 share a similar filler function that as far as I can tell is not available on the DR-55. And the DR-55 and the RMK-100 share a similar accent function that I don t see on the SR-88. Now where does the Electro Dynamics Corporation Programmable Rhythm SR-99 fit in? I also came across another machine with similar features - the Programmable Rhythm SR-99. No - not manufactured by Sound Master, but by Electro Dynamics Corporation. And, it too resembles the others in functionality, and especially the SR-88 in design also. I ve included a row of photos below to help make the comparison between the two. The SR-88 photo is from the 2005 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the EDC SR-99 photo is from the excellent BigBlueWave.co.uk site. I ve also thrown in a photo from another recent E-bay listing that included both - plus boxes and manuals! Sick! Obviously, Sound Master and EDC are somehow connected, although I can t find any info on the Internet concerning these two companies. I do know that they were both advertising separately in Keyboard Magazine in late 1983, making it unlikely that one of the companies changed their name to the other. Anyone know anything? And then there is the Clef Master Rhythm... Now, I m going to throw in a late entry. It s Sunday night, and I just came across this August 2010 MATRIXSYNTH auction post for the Clef Master Rhythm. It not only shares part of the name of one of the other units ("Master"), it too has many features of the other rhythm machines, and identical innards as the DR-55, but is expanded to include even more sounds: "This is essentially a fully expanded Boss DR-55 feature-wise and tone-wise. The circuits are identical (schematically and tonally) to the Boss DR-55, but the Clef Master Rhythm gives you way more instruments than the Boss DR-55..." Interestingly, according to the post, it pre-dates the Boss DR-55 - and also came in a kit form like the Amdek. "The Clef Master Rhythm came out a little before the Boss DR-55 in late 1979/early 1980. It was sold in two versions and available in greater quantities in Europe than in the United States. One version was a kit that the user put together and another one was a prebuilt machine." A photo from the MATRIXSYNTH post really helps show the similarities in functions with the others: What does it all mean? So, looking at all five machines, its almost like there was a rhythm machine salad bar of some sort in Japan, and each company stepped up to it and picked out which features they wanted to include in their product. And that begs the question - since we know there was a kit form available and there are claims that the Clef Master even has the same circuits as the DR-55, could all five products (and probably others) have used the exact same internal parts - each company choosing which features to include and then customizing in their respective rhythm machine? And if so, were those parts supplied by Amdek, or did all five get their internal parts from some other manufacturer? And if that is the case, then the question of whether the SR-88 or DR-55 came first doesn t really matter much, since it is likely that the kit components would have been available first. Plus, we have that one auction post with the claim that the Clef Master came out before the DR-55 - making it all even more confusing to figure out. Or, am I totally off the mark on all this? Were they all created separately? Maybe I ve just been fixated on this a little too much... I ll keep on looking for more info on these companies and any connection they might have, but if anyone want to buy all four and open them up to take a look - it would be muchly appreciated. :D Posted by RetroSynthAds at 12:05 PM Labels: 1982, amdek, clef master, dr-55, drum machine, electro dynamics corporation, keyboard magazine, rmk-100, Sound Master, sr-88, sr-99 2 comments: Simon said... Here s a funny thing - I seem to remember Clef in the early 1980s as a British company that made electronic pianos (touch-sensitive ones!) in kit form. Deep in the back of my mind I recall seeing them at a music fair in London with a couple of their pianos and some drum machines including a prototype drum/bass/chord sequencer called something like a "Band-Box". But it WAS a long time ago. February 12, 2012 at 12:36 PM Simon said... Looks like (for once) my memory didn t fail me. Here is a 1982 ad for Clef Electronics showing all the products I mentioned, plus a natty-looking little monosynth! BTW, I owned an EDC SR99 drum machine in the mid-1980s, but replaced it with a Yamaha RX-21 a couple of years later. February 12, 2012 at 12:46 PM

1257 CiteSeerX — Eigenrhythms: Drum pattern basis sets for classification and generation
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We took a collection of 100 drum beats from popular music tracks and estimated the measure length and downbeat position of each one. Using these values, we normalized each pattern to form an ensemble of aligned drum patterns. Principal Component Analysis on this data set results in a set of basis ñ€˜patterns ñ€™ that can be combined to give approximations and interpolations of all the examples. We use this low-dimension representation of the drum patterns as a space for classification and visualization, and discuss its application to generating continua of rhythms. Our classification results were very modest ñ€“ about 20 % correct on a 10-way genre classification task ñ€“ but we show that the projection into principal component space reveals aspects of the rhythm that are largely orthogonal to genre but are still perceptually relevant.

1244 CiteSeerX — Eigenrhythms: Drum pattern basis sets for classification and generation
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We took a collection of 100 drum beats from popular music tracks and estimated the measure length and downbeat position of each one. Using these values, we normalized each pattern to form an ensemble of aligned drum patterns. Principal Component Analysis on this data set results in a set of basis ñ€˜patterns ñ€™ that can be combined to give approximations and interpolations of all the examples. We use this low-dimension representation of the drum patterns as a space for classification and visualization, and discuss its application to generating continua of rhythms. Our classification results were very modest ñ€“ about 20 % correct on a 10-way genre classification task ñ€“ but we show that the projection into principal component space reveals aspects of the rhythm that are largely orthogonal to genre but are still perceptually relevant.

I have a non-fitness related life situation that I wanted to run by you guys
. I wanted to talk to you guys today about not always having to say your sorry. Are you one of those people who finds yourself apologizing for things just to smooth things over or avoid a confrontation? This ability is admirable in certain low-key non-crucial situations. It’s when we apologize for our beliefs and principles – or in the face of being bullied that we pay the high price of compromising ourselves. I have a friend who is being treated badly by certain members of her family. It really comes down to her not living her life exactly the way they think she should be living it. My friend is not endangering herself or others, she is kind hearted and generous to the extreme, but because she is not pulling the line and placing the needs of others before her own basic needs and happiness she is taking a lot of undeserved heat bordering on emotional abuse. Her strategy to this point has been to apologize left and right in an attempt to smooth it over and reset everything. It hasn’t worked and if anything it has given the people giving her a hard time more of a license to push it even further. I think there comes a time when you just have to say enough and stop apologizing. I think that there is more strength and balance in believing in yourself and respectfully staying firm in your truth. From this position I think both sides have the best chance of talking it through and resolving it. What do you guys think? Do you find yourself constantly apologizing to certain people in your life? Is it helping or making the relationship more challenging? Any advice for my friend?

Meeting: Pittsburgh Modular By Antisa on September 30, 2011 12:37 AM | No Comments Tonight we got to play in the basement studio of Pittsburgh's very own modular synth Stradivari - tucked away on unassuming Pocusset Street in Squirrel Hill. Headed by local Richard Nicol, Pittsburgh Modular is fast becoming a contender in the world market of modular synthesizers - supplying analog enthusiasts in the US, Europe and Australia (and possibly elsewhere, but I got too distracted by the beautiful glowing oscillators)... Interest in Pittsburgh Modular is picking up speed - and it's no wonder. The modules are as pretty as they are solidly built. Nicol, who now shares design and manufacturing duties with Thomas O'Connor (Australia) and Scott Swartz (USA), had moved away from producing electronic sounds digitally, in part, because analog is more fun. "The key to modular synthesis is that its captivatingly fun," he says. "After playing with it for 5 minutes, you get sucked into its world... and the next thing you know, you've created something new."

1132 Mammoth Modular Synthesizer At MIT Museum
Just got an update from Joe Paradiso on his homebuilt mammoth analog modular synthesizer. He’s installed it in the MIT Museum and has completed a fairly epic patch which you can listen to (24 hours a day!) here. Joe will be at the museum this Thursday and Friday (2/23 and 2/24) at 1pm, demoing the synth to visitors, so be sure to stop by if you’re in the neighborhood. Here’s some info from Joe on the construction and inspiration for the latest patch. The second patch I made at the MIT Museum is totally done now, and you can hear it live on the stream. Listen to it at http://synth.media.mit.edu, and let me know what you think if you’re inclined – it’s running in physical space in Quad, of course – stereo on the stream. Note that this one has absolutely NO sequencer of any sort on it – all of the patterns you hear were made entirely from hand-patched logic (counters, ands, ors, flip flops, ring counters, rate multipliers, etc.). It’s an entirely different kind of composition environment from the norm – you really need to simultaneously be an engineer while being an artist and something of a performer. The inspiration for this patch started with the Boredoms – if you don’t know who they are, you should (http://www.boredoms.jp/). In particular, I was thinking of SuperRoots 9. The beauty of the patching interface is that you can never exactly nail what you start out to attain, but on the other hand, you get drawn into places you wouldn’t have normally gone once you start. The 3 drummers that Yamantaka Eye performs with lay down a compelling rhythm that my hand-patched logic and analog processing can’t match, of course. But this patch definitely has a strange jumpy groove once it gets into gear, and the 2-chord pad is archetypical too. Yes, Boredoms rule today! BTW, this patch took every cord I had, plus a good 30 more wires just shoved into the pin jacks – check out the photos here and here – the latter shows the kind of logic section patching complexity you need to build a sonic environment like this one. I’m ripping this baby out next Thursday, as I’ll be at the museum next Thursday and Friday (2/23 and 2/24) at 1pm to demonstrate the synthesizer to visitors – doing some very simple patches and showing off what the modules do in case anybody is interested in this. It will run continuously until then. Otherwise, enjoy the stream – there are moments of introspective drift in-between wild percussion (yes, Boredoms!). I might pull the percussion line back so it doesn’t come so often or regularly, but it’s essentially a wrap.

Doepfer A-100 Synthesizer The Doepfer A-100 system conforms to the smaller of the two most popular sizes, modules being 3U high and using 3.5mm jacks, as opposed to the larger 'Moog-style' modules using the large 1/4-inch jacks. This is not to everyone's taste, but there is no denying that they offer a very wide range of modules, currently at over 100, and they are competitively priced. My system has been steadily growing (go here for my current list) since I bought the original batch in 2001

1078 The Modular Synth
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, before your local music shop was packed with the latest digital synths, even before the early analogue monosynths, if you wanted a synthesizer you had to make it yourself. Modular synthesis is not in itself a different type of synthesis, but refers to the fact that a synth would be built up from individual components (modules) , which would be linked together (patched) in a configuration decided by the person doing the building. Compared with today's 'plug and play' synths which come with 100's of presets, GM soundsets, etc, this has the obvious disadvantage that 'recalling' a preset can only be done if your synth is patched together in exactly the same way every time and every controller has to be manually set to the same parameter. However, the big advantage of Modular synthesis, of course, is that, providing you have the right components, you can build practically anything you want, without being constrained by the 'hardwired' configurations of modern factory built synthesizers. The Pulsar/Scope Modular synth, like any other Modular 'soft synth' brings together the advantages of both Modular synths and modern factory built synths. Modular configurations can be saved as patches for total recall later on, and each patch can contain any number of presets, again for later recall. Furthermore, with a software modular, you can re-use each component as many times as you wish within one patch, you never run out of cables, you don't have to dedicate a whole room to the synth and the modules never suffer from physical damage. What's more, each parameter can be controlled by MIDI so parameter changes can be recorded into your sequencer in real-time.

1066 EML Electrocomp 101
Electronic Music Labs (EML), based in Vernon, CT, was a rather strange but interesting outfit that, for a brief period in the early 1970s, had some success in the commercial synthesizer market. The company was founded and largely run by electrical engineers rather than musicians, an attribute with both strengths and weaknesses.

1052 Lab Overview
Not that I recommend this level of excitement to everyone, but this is my lab. It is my basement, and as you may note from the disheveled ceiling tiles up above, having this much equipment has actually forced me to purchase a separate AC unit for the basement. So my trendy two-zone AC house has now magically become a three-zone AC house. Fortunately, I didn't need a furnace for down here. Equipment is great in the winter to heat your house! The lab has taken on a life of it's own over time... It started out as a single standard 7-foot 19" rack. Then it grew to two standard racks... Then it changed into three Ortronics Mighty-Mo 19" rack systems (because those are cool). As seen now, it has changed yet again into four separate rack cabinets. The cabinets are a bit pricey, so they aren't all the same vendor. Note to all, even if you find a really good price on Ebay, be aware that you still have to ship them, and they weigh a LOT! (This means, have lots of friends and lots of pizza/beer!) Nov'04 -- Well, things have moved even more! The equipment was beating the AC unit that ran for the basement. So instead of being a three-level, three-zone house, we had to upgrade to being a four-zone house. Go figure. As noted above, I would not recommend this path to anyone unless you have a good amount of business to drive it! All of the equipment here is used for testing and lab purposes, but easily serves as Proof of Concept lab for many consulting clients of mine. The recent change was that the crawlspace area under the kitchen area was excavated out and had a concrete floor poured making an enclosed little room. In addition, a large air handler (AKA Mongo AC Unit) was put into that specific room and a door was installed for access and physical separation! While all a very interesting project, it is a pain to move any equipment that you amass, so definitely plan ahead for this sort of activity!

1050 Frieze Magazine | Comment | Conrad Schnitzler
In the early 1960s, Conrad Schnitzler met Joseph Beuys in a bar in DĂŒsseldorf. Beuys was at the start of his legendary run as a professor of ‘monumental sculpture’ at DĂŒsseldorf’s Kunstakademie. Schnitzler was a sailor, who specialized in fixing the engines of merchant ships in nearby ports. Beuys took a liking to Schnitzler, inviting him to be one of his students. Schnitzler enrolled at the Kunstakademie, but dropped out a year or two later, much to Beuys’ dismay. If, as Beuys famously entreated, ‘everybody is an artist’, why did he have to go to school to be one? Schnitzler travelled for a few years, making metal sculptures and performance art. Then he took the metal sculptures he built during his time with Beuys, which he had covered in stark planes of black and white paint, dragged them all to a grassy field, and left them there.

1043 Monotribe, MIDI and me
synth When I heard about the monotribe, I had my doubts. Mostly that there’s only one pattern, which is 8 steps long. Well, there are 8 extra steps for the drums, as well as a “flux mode” which records your movements on the ribbon continuously. In that sense, it is limited, and is an instrument made to be played with your hands, rather than be programmed. But as it turned out, this was a design choice, and not a technical limitation. I can easily imagine why. They wanted it to seem as analog and playful as possible. Same thing with MIDI. Officially, the monotribe doesn’t support MIDI. It does however offer a sync pulse output and input. This allows it to be synced to other monotribes, modular synthesizers or even Korg’s own virtual iMS-20/iElectribe, using a special sync app on a second iPhone/Pod/Pad. However, the lack of MIDI is still a slight limitation.

1033 "I'm a technical lead on the Google+ team. Ask me anything."
I helped design and build a lot of the circles model and sharing UI for Google+. I was recruited to Google to work on "getting social right" in early 2010. Prior to that, I was CTO of Plaxo, and also its first employee (since March 2002). I've also spent many years working on open standards for the social web (OpenID, OAuth, Portable Contacts, WebFinger, etc.) Since I work for a big/public company (albeit a pretty cool one), I can't provide specific stats, dates for future features, or details of confidential code/algorithms. But I will do my best to be "refreshingly frank" about everything else. :)

1014 Nord Modular Tips & Tricks
synth clavia Nord Modular & Micro Modular V3.03 tips & tricks Welcome to the Nord Modular and Micro Modular 'tips and tricks' section! The workshops of this section are created by a very skilled Nord Modular user: Rob Hordijk. On the 'tips and tricks' pages you will find various information regarding sound synthesis techniques. With every topic comes a workshop where you can follow the practical, non-mathematical, musician-oriented examples. The patches are kept as simple as possible showing only the basic connections. So it's up to you to color the tone to your liking, add modulation, etc., thus turning them into musically useful patches. Occasionally there might be a 'professional' patch as a bonus. If you have a Nord Modular or Nord MicroModular synthesizer you can download the example patches directly from the workshops into the Modular Editor V3.03 program and your synth and play with them. Just click on the patch image to download the actual patch to your Modular. If you do not have a Nord Modular you can download the Modular Editor V3.03 software here and check out the patches visually. Another very skilled Nord Modular/G2 user - Roland Kuit - has made the E-Book "SoundLab". This book covers synthesis techniques from A-Z, history of electronic music and composing techniques. For more info about the SoundLab E-Book, please visit: http://rolandkuit.blogspot.com/Topics available: Basics of sound synthesis on the Nord Modular This extensive section describes the basics of synthesis. (By Rob Hordijk) Basic synthesis Oscillator synchronisation This topic covers hardsync, softsync, FM-sync and VOSIM, a special application of sync. (By Rob Hordijk) Sync workshop Frequency Modulation This topic covers different types of FM, like linear FM, Phase Modulation and fixed formant FM.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re a necessary evil of the digital age. The reality is we all end up with an alphabet soup of passwords spread over dozens of various sites and services across the internet. Whilst we might not always practice it, we all know the theory of creating a good password; uniqueness, randomness and length. The more of each, the better. Of course we frequently don’t do this because of all sorts of human factors such as convenience, memory or simple unawareness of the risks. Still, when it’s a case of individuals electing not to create secure passwords, they really only have themselves to blame. But what happens when the website won’t allow you to create a secure password? Or at least when they severely constrain your ability to create long, random, unique passwords? And what about when they don’t allow you to send it between your computer and their server securely? Even worse, what happens when our most “secure” institutions implement lazy password policies? Unfortunately, all of this is pretty rampant practice.

987 Alesis Micron
This is one of the cutest, smallest, yet most powerful synths I've ever put my hands on! The Micron is the sequel to the popular Ion, and while it can be considered as the Ion's younger brother, it actually has a few enhancements that are absent on the big bro. This is a very clean, precise, sparkly and definitely virtual analog (or analog modeled) sounding synth. Eight voices of polyphony are plenty for these types of units, but we would always want more. The synth engine is the same as the Ion though, but extra and welcome features include sequencing, arpeggio, and great on board percussion, and the ability to build patterns. The Micron really sounds bigger than it looks: while personally I feel that the character of its synth engine leans on the more digitally precise DSP side of virtual analog technology, it's certainly capable of huge, warm and fat sounds. The main panel is logically laid out and easy to understand. At the very left, a big red knob offers volume control; the two "m1" and "m2" sliders provide useful modulation control, typically (but not always) vibrato and filter cutoff. The three knobs labeled "x", "y" and "z" also offer way of modulating sounds, and can (ought to) be assigned to your favorite parameters. Two octave buttons, and other useful commands such as tap (tempo) and latch (sustains the notes) occupy the space at the left of the two-line backlit green display. Finally, a multi-function matrix with push-down knob serve as the central nerve system of the machine, letting you easily access programs, setups, configurations, patterns and rhythms. You do the programming by turning the knob to view the various editing pages. In all, it's simple to program, and the manual does a fantastic job of being easy to follow and easy to understand.

962 25 Abandoned Soviet Monuments that look like they're from the Future | Crack Two
These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like TjentiĆĄte, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and NiĆĄ). They were designed by different sculptors (DuĆĄan DĆŸamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Ćœivković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost. From 2006 to 2009, Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region (now Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, etc.) with the help of a 1975 map of memorials, bringing before our eyes a series of melancholy yet striking images. His photos raise a question: can these former monuments continue to exist as pure sculptures? On one hand, their physical dilapidated condition and institutional neglect reflect a more general social historical fracturing. And on the other hand, they are still of stunning beauty without any symbolic significances. I know this may sound schizophrenic if you also read my last post.

916 HughLeCaine.com - Bonjour
Biographie On a qualifiĂ© le scientifique et compositeur canadien Hugh Le Caine (1914-1977) de "hĂ©ros" de la musique Ă©lectronique. Il a grandi Ă  Port Arthur (maintenant Thunder Bay) dans le nord-ouest de l'Ontario. TrĂšs tĂŽt, il a commencĂ© Ă  construire des instruments de musique et Ă  expĂ©rimenter avec des appareils Ă©lectroniques. Dans sa jeunesse, il imaginait des "sonoritĂ©s merveilleuses" qu'il pensait pouvoir rĂ©aliser Ă  l'aide de nouvelles inventions Ă©lectroniques. Hugh Le Caine travaillant dans le laboratoire de physique de l'UniversitĂ© Queen Ă  Kingston en Ontario, en 1938 AprĂšs l'obtention de son diplĂŽme de maĂźtrise en science Ă  l'UniversitĂ© Queen en 1939, il s'est joint au Conseil national de recherche du Canada (CNRC) Ă  Ottawa. Il a travaillĂ© au dĂ©veloppement des premiers systĂšmes de radar et en physique atomique, se distinguant comme scientifique et publiant d'importants articles dans ces domaines. Chez lui, il poursuivait ses recherches en musique Ă©lectronique et en gĂ©nĂ©ration de son. Il a montĂ© son studio personnel en 1945 oĂč il a dĂ©butĂ© son travail indĂ©pendant sur la conception d'instruments de musique Ă©lectroniques tels que la sacqueboute Ă©lectronique, un instrument monophonique trĂšs Ă©laborĂ© qui est maintenant reconnu comme le premier synthĂ©tiseur contrĂŽlĂ© par tension. Par la suite, Le Caine a dĂ©veloppĂ© des systĂšmes de contrĂŽle par tension pour une grande variĂ©tĂ© d'applications. En 1948, Le Caine est parti en Angleterre pour quatre ans oĂč il a fait des Ă©tudes en physique, poursuivant son travail en musique Ă©lectronique Ă  son retour au Canada. GrĂące aux dĂ©monstrations publiques de ses instruments, il a obtenu la permission de dĂ©placer ses activitĂ©s musicales au CNRC et de s'y consacrer Ă  plein temps en 1954. Pendant les vingt annĂ©es qui ont suivi, il a construit plus de vingt-deux nouveaux instruments diffĂ©rents. Il a collaborĂ© au dĂ©veloppement de deux des premiers studios de musique Ă©lectronique Ă  l'UniversitĂ© de Toronto (inaugurĂ© en 1959) et Ă  l'UniversitĂ© McGill Ă  MontrĂ©al (inaugurĂ© en 1964). Le laboratoire de Le Caine au CNRC a fourni pratiquement Ă  lui seul l'Ă©quipement pour ces deux premiers studios. Les composantes de la saqueboute ont Ă©tĂ© sĂ©parĂ©es en unitĂ©s indĂ©pendantes - ou modules - permettant au compositeurs de leur assigner une tĂąche spĂ©cifique au sein d'un ensemble. Le Caine a enseignĂ© aux deux universitĂ©s et a influencĂ© toute une gĂ©nĂ©ration de compositeurs de musique Ă©lectroacoustique. Ses nombreux articles et dĂ©monstrations personnelles ont eu un effet catalyseur dans la communautĂ© canadienne et internationale. Il a exercĂ© une influence indirecte sur le dĂ©veloppement du synthĂ©tiseur modulaire Moog par l'entremise de Gustav Ciamaga, qui Ă©tait familier avec les filtres de Le Caine et qui a par la suite encouragĂ© Robert Moog Ă  dĂ©velopper son filtre passe-bas contrĂŽlĂ© par tension. Un des aspects les plus importants des instruments de Le Caine est sans doute leur efficacitĂ© pour la performance, leur maniabilitĂ©. Son obsession pour le "beau son" l'a conduit Ă  concevoir des instruments capables de produire un jeu expressif nuancĂ© caractĂ©ristique de la tradition orchestrale. Il avait un sens aigu des besoins de l'interprĂšte afin que celui-ci puisse exĂ©cuter les gestes qui, selon Le Caine, constituent l'essence de la musique. À cet Ă©gard, la sensibilitĂ© au toucher a Ă©tĂ© un Ă©lĂ©ment essentiel et a Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©e pour les claviers, les mixeurs et autres composantes, sous des formes d'application mĂ©canique, Ă©lectronique et au moyen de la sensibilitĂ© Ă  la lumiĂšre. Sur ce point, les conceptions de Le Caine Ă©taient tellement avancĂ©es que certaines des possibilitĂ©s qu'il a dĂ©veloppĂ©es n'ont connu d'application commerciale que dans les annĂ©es 1980. IdĂ©alement, un instrument de musique devrait offrir de bonnes qualitĂ©s sonores et une certaine flexibilitĂ© dans son contrĂŽle. Or ces deux objectifs ne sont pas toujours compatibles. Les instruments traditionnels exigent habituellement une longue formation avant que l'interprĂšte puisse tirer parti de leurs qualitĂ©s musicales. Dans la conception de ses instruments Ă©lectroniques, Le Caine a tentĂ© de mettre l'accent sur la maniabilitĂ© de l'instrument sans compromettre l'intĂ©gritĂ© de la musique. Chacune de ses crĂ©ations est une Ă©tude unique sur l'Ă©quilibre et le raffinement. Sur le CD, HUGH LE CAINE, COMPOSITIONS, DOMONSTRATIONS 1946-1974, nous pouvons entendre les enregistrements rĂ©alisĂ©s par Le Caine, oĂč il explore et fait la dĂ©monstration des possibilitĂ©s qu'offrent huit de ses instruments. Dripsody, sa composition de 1955 construite Ă  partir du son d'une seule goutte d'eau, compte encore parmi les exemples les plus jouĂ©s de musique concrĂšte. MalgrĂ© l'accueil favorable que ses compositions ont Ă  juste titre connu, Le Caine a conservĂ© une attitude critique Ă  leur Ă©gard : "Je ne me considĂ©rais pas comme un compositeur. Toutefois, j'ai senti que la seule façon de comprendre l'intĂ©rĂȘt du compositeur pour un instrument Ă©tait de l'utiliser moi-mĂȘme dans les diffĂ©rentes formes musicales actuelles." Son humour dĂ©prĂ©ciateur Ă  l'Ă©gard de lui-mĂȘme est Ă©vident dans certains des titres qu'il a donnĂ©s Ă  ses compositions, tel que A Noisome Pestilence (le titre est un calembours : l'anglais "noisome" signifie rĂ©pugnant ou fĂ©tide, mais suggĂšre Ă©galement "noise" qui signifie bruit, d'oĂč la traduction adoptĂ©e, "Une peste bruyante"). Lorsqu'on lui a demandĂ© pourquoi il avait nommĂ© sa premiĂšre composition Dripsody, il a rĂ©pondu : "Parce qu'elle a Ă©tĂ© Ă©crite par une goutte."

884 jh_polykorg_clone
I have started to build a (slightly) updated version of the Korg PS-3200 synthesizer. The PS-3200 was the last of three fully polyphonic, semi-modular analogue synthesizers offered by Korg in the late 70's. (See Ben Ward's excellent Korg PS site for detailed information, including user manuals.) The concept of the PS-Synthesizers was different from other manufacturer's early polyphonic instruments. Instead of using a small number of voices and a clever keyboard assigning circuit, the "PolyKorgs" had a complete synthesizer circuit, hard wired to each key. That makes a total of 48 VCFs, 48 VCAs and 48 voltage controlled ADSRs even for the smallest of the range, the PS-3100. The largest of the range, PS-3300, even had 144 of these circuits. The sheer number of synthesizer circuits called for an extremly economic circuit design, and it's a joy to look at Korg's design ideas which led to building blocks that almost did the same as in the better known "classic" synthesizers. And after many years of engineering and reverse-engineering electronic music circuits, I have learned to look at odd solutions not as "substandard", but as a source of creativity an individual character. Here's a list of some highlights: Function Implementation Side effects Single-Transistor Waveform Converter creates triangle, saw, pulse and PWM from saw input, using one (!) transistor, one diode and two resistors per voice, plus two global control voltages Pulse height also changes with pulse width 5-Transistor-VCF (Korg-35) A Voltage controlled 2-pole (Sallen&Key) LPF built from 5 transistors rather high CV feedthru Single-Diode VC Resonance The dynamic resistance of a simple diode is used to alter the feedback gain of the VCF limited range of Q "Expand" function instead of VCF Envelope modulation depth Instead of scaling down the ADSR with a VCA, the a variable portion of the Envelope is just clipped with a single diode. It's so remarkably close to ordinary VCA function that apparently nobody takes notice. At least I have not read about it anywhere. At slow Atack times, the Envelope appears delayed at the VCF (no effect until th eclipping point is reached). Usefull for Brass sounds, and not easy to emulate with conventional synthesizers. Minimum parts count Voltage Controlled ADSR Three transistors, 1/2 of a LM324 and one CD4007 per voice. Plus some more involved control circuit, shared by several voices Transistors must be selected in 13-tuples, not just in pairs. ADSR detail (1): One-opamp control logic 1/4 LM324 is used as Flipflop, which is dynamically set by Gate-ON, dynamically reset by Gate-OFF, statically reset when the attack peak voltage is reached, and whose set/reset sensitivity is altered by a CV Very odd "Hold" function, depending on the "Attack"-value. But very useful in practise. ADSR detail (2): Single-Transistor, exponential slope VC-Decay Using a single transistor per voice for VC Attack and Release is remarkable already, even though the A and R slopes are linerar. But the Decay slope is exponential, and this is achieved with a single transistor and two resistors per voice! The Decay time range is rather limited. No ultra fast Decay, and no ultra slow Decay either. Single-Transistor VCA That's the "Korg standard" VCA, well known from other instruments like the MS-10.

871 Get familiar with HTML5! - Dev.Opera
Dev.Opera article: Get familiar with HTML5! developer,article,html, wsc,html5,web standards curriculum,open web Introduction Most of the web standards curriculum is based on the last stable version of HTML — HTML 4.01. The HTML 4.01 spec was completed in 1999, over 10 years ago as of the time of this writing! But unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last year or so, you'll be well aware that there is a new version of HTML in production — HTML5! So why have we been teaching you HTML 4.01 in spite of this? In this article we'll answer this question, and many more. We'll give you the essential background you need to know on why HTML5 came about, and where it is up to now. We'll advise you on how it can fit into your learning right now, even if you are a novice web designer or developer, and we will look at some of the main features of HTML5, so you can see what it adds to the already powerful HTML language.

I’ve always believed it’s been one of the most important attributes of business success yet something very few business leaders talk about. So I thought I’d write a post about how I drive my personal creativity. As a practitioner of creativity rather than as an instructor of it I’m certain that there are many ways to get the creative juices flowing and how to release more creativity. The one that works best for me is visualization coupled with self talk. Visualization is so important to help yourself & others conceptualize ideas. It’s why I always work hard to find images for my blog posts & why all of my keynote presentations are visual rather than bullet points with words.

865 Evolver.html
Just Beautiful! What an amazing instrument! The DSI Evolver has the signature "old school" timbre down pat as well as being able to provide digital timbres reminiscent of the Waldorf Q. There's certainly a "rougher" side available as well with all the feedback implementation and controled distortion. Being able to make PM type plucked and blown sounds is just icing on the cake. Dave Smith should be commended for a job well done. Just have a look at the Panel Layout to get a taste of what this beauty can dish out - the controls are pretty much laid out in the form of a signal path graphic. Be sure to visit Dave Smith's Website! Evolver Sound Examples There are a lot of demos of the Evolver on the web showcasing the gutsy harsh sounds of this beast so I decided to post demos of some of my own patches as examples of the "softer" more "vintage" side of the Evolver's timbre. I make no apologies for these unpolished recordings - these are merely sound samples ;) Resonant Plucked Pad This pad shows some of the rich resonant nature of the filter. Soft Lead This is a simple analog brass lead patch. FM Pad A fun patch with lots of motion made using my "Audio-rate Filter FM" programming tip below. Warm Pad A nice bland-vanilla pad ^_^ What can I say? I love pads... For more MP3 demos showing the full gamut of sounds the Evolver and Polyevolver are capable of, please visit the excellent website of Stefan Trippler! The Definitive Guide to Evolver This rather in-depth guide to the Evolver goes places and does things a mere manual can't. This labor-of-love was crafted by Anu Kirk and with his kind permission, I am offering this fantastic resource right here in PDF format! A much smaller version (400K) is here but it dosen't have internal hyperlinks. Programming Tips Here's a fun repository of programming tips for the Evolver in all its incarnations. Please email me if you would like to add some. Fingered Wave Sequence Submitted by Dave Bryce. This brilliant technique has to be heard to be believed! Plus, its one of those cool things unique to the Evolver! This particular tip is so full of detailed information that it gets its own page! Audio-rate Filter FM Submitted by James Maier. Use the "Audio Mod" parameter in the Filter section to frequency-modulate the cutoff with the analog oscillator. Add resonance until the filter is just on the edge of oscillation then mod the cutoff with just a little triangle LFO set at a very slow speed. Amazing moving chorusing pad and lead sounds can be made this way. Fatter Bass/Pad Sounds Submitted by Mike Peake. Set the same sound in both channels (detuned saws, for instance). With the filters at the 24dB setting, increasing resonance cuts the passband as on the Moog filters. Set Envelope 3 to minimum attack, maximum decay and release, and sustain to maximum. This "creates" an offset, a continuous "on" signal while the keys are gated. Modulate one filters' resonance up (just one), or of the overall resonance level is high, us it to modulate one filters' resonance to its minimum. You get the resonant character plus the size of the non-resonant filter. Use Tri and Sine waves on that side too. "Warmer" Sounds Submitted by James Maier. The Evolver can make many ultra-bright and buzzy sounds due to its extensive feedback and distortion stages but sometimes people miss the subtler side of the beast. For a warmer sound use little or no distortion, close the filter just a bit and turn off the feedback and delay lines. I've managed to get dead-on Prophet5 timbres this way. Adding "Punch" Submitted by Mike Peake. Set the envelopes to linear, and use a Mod to modulate AmpEnv All by itself (lin through log responses with positive and negative self-modulation). This is of course fun on the filter envelopes as well. More Vintage Character Submitted by Mike Peake. Oscillator Slop, set at 5, doesn't come close to the Moog and other old-timer movement, so add slight (1 or 2) LFO to pitch modulations, with individual LFOs per oscillator, and a touch of LFO to LFO rate modulation. A tad of Envelope 3 to pitch helps as well. Don't miss out on the 12dB filter setting Submitted by Mike Peake. The 24dB setting has much more resonance, but the 12dB setting can sound nice and plucky, and do nice slightly fuzzy pads etc. DSI Evolver Waveshape Charts Below are charts I've assembled of the digital waveforms and their spectra as currently used in the DSI Evolver synthesizers. Originally these waves were unique to the SCI ProphetVS vector synth. I find these waveform/spectra graphics really usefull when programming sounds - maybe you will as well. Pay special attention to the spectra as this info is sometimes much more useful than waveshape in determining actual timbre - even before you hear what the waveform sounds like. These are designed to be downloaded (right-click & "save target as"), and printed at 300dpi on 8.5" x 11" pages - don't resize these images before printing or you will lose useful detail. Use them as a handy refrence. This information was cobbled together from various scattered sources (with very special thanks to Achim Gratz!). Any errors or omissions are my own. ^_^ HAVE FUN!!! Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 As far as the origin of these waves is concerned, one of the original VS engineers, Chris Meyer, said: "The original waves for the VS were created three ways - extracting single-cycles from sampled sounds, using a custom additive synthesis program, and using a program Josh (Josh Jeffe, another VS engineer) slapped together called "Hacker" where you could draw the waveshape. These were fed straight from the computer through the filter and VCA of a Pro-One to figure out what they might sound like in a patch. And by the way, no PPG waveforms appear inside the VS - we had access to them, but in the end our consciences got the better of us. We did steal some waveforms from the Korg DW6000, but only by looking at the harmonic drawings on the front panel and trying to imitate them in our additive synthesis program." Modulation Matrix "Cheat Sheet" This chart shows all the modulation routing available on the Evolver. This same info is available in the manual but this can be printed on a single sheet of paper as a handy refrence! Evolver Wallpaper These I created just for fun and desktop "beautification" ;) 1280 X 1024 1024 X 768 800 X 600

On his web site SPERRZONE (www.sperrzone.net) he does not only present his own pictures, but also some information about the related factories and places as well as historical photo post cards, old letter heads, labels, advertisings to document the history of the factories. Most pictures are taken in abandoned factories. Abandoned places and industrial ruins are generally seen as ñ€œspots of dirtñ€ and people feel uncomfortable around them. Often such places have a very long and interesting history, which seems almost forgotten today. Instead of the activity of former days there is nothing but silence and emptiness. Instead of windows, black holes are staring out of the walls. But very often the architecture of elapsed eras is attractive and astonishing. In combination with the emptiness and beginning decay, such places often spread the impression of a dream world. Decay and nature give new structures to strictly geometric forms and lines, e.g. in production halls. Moisture, moss and rust give new colors to gray halls. Beat Hauser tries to capture these impressions with his photographs. Aesthetics of decay is illustrated in its huge variety from huge industrial plants to small details.

767 The 5 types of programmers « Steven Benner's Blog
In my code journeys and programming adventures I’ve encountered many strange foes, and even stranger allies. I’ve identified at least five different kinds of code warriors, some make for wonderful comrades in arms, while others seem to foil my every plan. However they all have their place in the pantheon of software development. Without a healthy mix of these different programming styles you’ll probably find your projects either take too long to complete, are not stable enough or are too perfect for humans to look upon. The duct tape programmer The code may not be pretty, but damnit, it works! This guy is the foundation of your company. When something goes wrong he will fix it fast and in a way that won’t break again. Of course he doesn’t care about how it looks, ease of use, or any of those other trivial concerns, but he will make it happen, without a bunch of talk or time-wasting nonsense. The best way to use this person is to point at a problem and walk away. The OCD perfectionist programmer You want to do what to my code? This guy doesn’t care about your deadlines or budgets, those are insignificant when compared to the art form that is programming. When you do finally receive the finished product you will have no option but submit to the stunning glory and radiant beauty of perfectly formatted, no, perfectly beautiful code, that is so efficient that anything you would want to do to it would do nothing but defame a masterpiece. He is the only one qualified to work on his code. The anti-programming programmer I’m a programmer, damnit. I don’t write code. His world has one simple truth; writing code is bad. If you have to write something then you’re doing it wrong. Someone else has already done the work so just use their code. He will tell you how much faster this development practice is, even though he takes as long or longer than the other programmers. But when you get the project it will only be 20 lines of actual code and will be very easy to read. It may not be very fast, efficient, or forward-compatible, but it will be done with the least effort required. The half-assed programmer What do you want? It works doesn’t it? The guy who couldn’t care less about quality, that’s someone elses job. He accomplishes the tasks that he’s asked to do, quickly. You may not like his work, the other programmers hate it, but management and the clients love it. As much pain as he will cause you in the future, he is single-handedly keeping your deadlines so you can’t scoff at it (no matter how much you want to). The theoretical programmer Well, that’s a possibility, but in practice this might be a better alternative. This guy is more interested the options than what should be done. He will spend 80% of his time staring blankly at his computer thinking up ways to accomplish a task, 15% of his time complaining about unreasonable deadlines, 4% of his time refining the options, and 1% of his time writing code. When you receive the final work it will always be accompanied by the phrase “if I had more time I could have done this the right way”. Where do you fit? Personally, I’d have to classify myself as the perfectionist. So, which type of programmer are you? Or perhaps you know another programming archetype that is missing from my list? Post a comment below and I’ll add it to a new updated list.

766 [WS001] Circuit-Bending – Initiation « Gasol
Introduction Le Circuit-Bending ou Circuitage dĂ©signe l’activitĂ© qui consiste Ă  volontairement court-circuiter un appareil Ă©lectronique (gĂ©nĂ©ralement sonore) afin de provoquer des comportements inattendus pour le dĂ©tourner de son usage d’origine. Par exemple, un jouet sonore pour enfant ou une console de jeu gĂ©nĂ©reront des sons ou des images plus ou moins alĂ©atoires et imprĂ©visibles. Ce terme Ă  Ă©tĂ© introduit par Reed Ghazala dans les annĂ©e 60 lorsqu’il court-circuita accidentellement l’un de ses instruments. Mais des mĂ©thodes similaires ont Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©es auparavant par d’autres musiciens et ingĂ©nieurs. Cette activitĂ© peut ĂȘtre assimilĂ©e Ă  une certaine forme d’art, de part le dĂ©tournement, l’appropriation et la personnalisation de ces appareils ainsi que leurs usages lors de performances audiovisuelles. C’est l’art du court-circuit. On rencontrera souvent les termes Circuit-Bender ou Bender pour dĂ©signer la personne qui effectue ces modifications et on parlera de Bends pour toutes modifications apportĂ©es Ă  l’appareil. Attention: Ne jamais tenter ces manipulations sur des appareils alimentĂ©s par une tension supĂ©rieure Ă  12V, risque d’électrocution. Ne pas torturer des appareils trop onĂ©reux ou auxquels on tient, en effet il existe un haut risque de casse irrĂ©versible qui transformera le jouet en un joli presse papier. Un peu de thĂ©orie Le Circuitage ne demande pas de grandes connaissances en Ă©lectronique, mais quelques bases sont nĂ©cessaires Ă  l’apprĂ©hension de cette activitĂ©. Notamment la reconnaissance des divers composants Ă©lectroniques qui seront utilisĂ©s ou court-circuitĂ©s. RĂ©sistances La rĂ©sistance est surement le composant le plus rĂ©pandu. Sa principale caractĂ©ristique est d’opposer une plus ou moins grande rĂ©sistance Ă  la circulation du courant Ă©lectrique. Sa valeur (mesurĂ©e en ohms) peut ĂȘtre dĂ©terminĂ©e par un code couleur ou lue sur le boĂźtier des composants les plus rĂ©cents. PotentiomĂštres Un potentiomĂštre n’est autre qu’une rĂ©sistance ajustable. Il possĂšde 3 pattes ainsi qu’un systĂšme mĂ©canique permettant la variation de la rĂ©sistance. Photo-rĂ©sistances Une photo-rĂ©sistance est Ă©galement une rĂ©sistance dont la valeur varie en fonction de l’intensitĂ© lumineuse. On peut Ă©galement le nommer rĂ©sistance photo-dĂ©pendante (light-dependent resistor (LDR)) ou photoconducteur. Condensateurs Un condensateur est un composant Ă©lectronique ou Ă©lectrique Ă©lĂ©mentaire qui a pour propriĂ©tĂ© principale de pouvoir stocker des charges Ă©lectriques opposĂ©es sur ses armatures. Il est utilisĂ© principalement pour stabiliser une alimentation Ă©lectrique, traiter des signaux pĂ©riodiques, sĂ©parer le courant alternatif du courant continu, stocker de l’énergie. Diodes La diode est principalement utilisĂ©e comme convertisseur de courant alternatif vers du courant continu ou comme multiplicateur ou rĂ©gulateur de tension. C’est un composant polarisĂ©, ce qui signifie que le sens de branchement a une importance sur le fonctionnement du montage. Diodes Electro-Luminescentes (DEL / LED) La LED possĂšde la particularitĂ© de gĂ©nĂ©rer de la lumiĂšre lorsqu’elle est parcourue par un courant. De la mĂȘme maniĂšre que la diode, ce composant est polarisĂ©. Transistors Le transistor est le composant actif utilisĂ© principalement comme interrupteur commandĂ© ou pour l’amplification, mais aussi pour stabiliser une tension ou moduler un signal. Circuits intĂ©grĂ©s Le circuit intĂ©grĂ© (CI), aussi appelĂ© puce Ă©lectronique, est un composant Ă©lectronique reproduisant une ou plusieurs fonctions Ă©lectroniques plus ou moins complexes, intĂ©grant souvent plusieurs types de composants Ă©lectroniques de base dans un volume rĂ©duit, rendant le circuit facile Ă  mettre en Ɠuvre. Il existe une trĂšs grande variĂ©tĂ© de ces composants divisĂ©s en deux grandes catĂ©gories : analogique et numĂ©rique. Interrupteurs Un interrupteur est un dispositif permettant d’interrompre ou d’autoriser le passage d’un flux. Boutons poussoirs Le bouton poussoir est une touche tactile qui permet de faire une liaison Ă©lectrique momentanĂ©e le temps que l’on appuie dessus ou, sur certains modĂšles inversĂ©s, d’ouvrir temporairement le contact Ă©lectrique. Connecteurs Jack Format de connecteur mĂąle et femelle gĂ©nĂ©ralement utilisĂ© pour les connexions audio de types casques et micros. Le mini Jack fait 3,5 mm de diamĂštre, le jack normal fait 6,35 mm. MatĂ©riel et compĂ©tences Pour mener Ă  bien ces projets et en plus de certains composants citĂ©s ci-dessus, il faudra ĂȘtre Ă©quipĂ© du matĂ©riel basique (tournevis, fer Ă  souder, Ă©tain, pompe Ă  dessouder, cĂąblage, pinces coupantes, pinces croco, perceuse, dremel 
) De plus, il faudra un minimum de compĂ©tences en soudage, mais tout le monde se souvient des cours de technologies au collĂšge et dans tous les cas, ces compĂ©tences s’acquiĂšrent vite aprĂšs quelques essais. Il faudra simplement veiller Ă  ne pas dĂ©poser la panne du fer trop longtemps sur un composant pour ne pas l’endommager et ne pas faire baver l’étain au risque de crĂ©er un court-circuit non souhaitĂ©. Il faudra Ă©galement s’armer de patience, c’est la qualitĂ© premiĂšre et la plus haute compĂ©tence d’un Bender. En effet, un jouet nĂ©cessite gĂ©nĂ©ralement entre 4 Ă  12h pour ĂȘtre modifiĂ© (dont les 3/4 de ce temps sont consacrĂ©s Ă  la recherche des Bends). Avec l’expĂ©rience ce temps sera considĂ©rablement rĂ©duit. Beaucoup de pratique Victimes potentielles Pour dĂ©buter, l’idĂ©al est de s’attaquer Ă  des appareils peu couteux tels que des jouets sonores rĂ©cupĂ©rĂ©s dans votre cave ou lors de vide-greniers. Les plus rĂ©putĂ©s Ă©tant les jouets vintages du type DictĂ©e Magique et dĂ©rivĂ©s (Speak&Spell/Math/Learn), les insupportables Furby, les petits synthĂ©tiseurs type Casio SK-1 
 Tout ce qui possĂšde un haut-parleur, fonctionne sur piles ou en dessous de 12V. Plus particuliĂšrement les appareils fabriquĂ©s durant les annĂ©es 80/90 qui ne sont pas encore Ă©quipĂ©s de composants Ă©lectroniques sophistiquĂ©s ou de circuits entiĂšrement numĂ©riques. Les constructeurs les plus connus sont: Texas Instruments, Casio, Vtech, Coleco, Creatoy. Il est Ă©videmment possible d’élargir les domaines de recherches Ă  des appareils plus Ă©laborĂ©s mais gare Ă  l’irrĂ©versible court-circuit meurtrier qui mettra dĂ©finitivement la machine hors-service. Recherche Il faut tout d’abord dĂ©sosser votre cible pour mettre Ă  nu le circuit Ă©lectronique. Ensuite, on allume le jouet pour lui faire Ă©mettre un son et on test simplement sa rĂ©activitĂ© en posant plusieurs doigts simultanĂ©ment sur diffĂ©rents endroits du circuit. GĂ©nĂ©ralement, un effet de « pitch » se fait entendre (baisse/augmentation de la tonalitĂ©), on comprend alors que la machine est sensible au Circuitage et les choses sĂ©rieuses peuvent donc commencer (toutes les machines ne sont pas forcement sensibles au toucher, mais c’est une bonne technique d’approche). Afin de ne pas avoir Ă  mĂ©moriser tous les endroits sensibles, l’idĂ©al est de prendre une photo du circuit, de la transferer sur un ordinateur et ainsi noter pas Ă  pas Ă  l’aide d’un logiciel de dessin type MSPaint ou Photoshop tous les Bends dĂ©couverts. Certains les notent directement sur le circuit Ă  l’aide d’un stylo ou d’un feutre, mais l’encre contenant gĂ©nĂ©ralement du carbone et le carbone Ă©tant conducteur, il existe un risque de court-circuit non dĂ©sirĂ© dont on pourra difficilement se dĂ©faire. La premiĂšre et la plus simple des modifications Ă  apporter Ă  son appareil est le raccordement Ă  un ampli ou une console de mixage. Il sera alors possible d’enregistrer les sons de la machine ou de l’utiliser lors de performances live. Pour ce faire, on repĂšre gĂ©nĂ©ralement le haut-parleur et on le remplace ou on installe en parallĂšle un connecteur Jack. Dans le second cas, l’ajout d’un interrupteur pourra servir Ă  basculer entre la sortie audio ou le haut-parleur. On peut maintenant commencer Ă  parcourir mĂ©thodiquement ou au hasard le circuit Ă  l’aide d’un testeur. Le plus simple est d’utiliser des pinces croco que l’on raccordera Ă  deux petits tournevis d’horloger. On place la pointe du premier tournevis qui restera stationnaire sur un point du circuit et avec le second on parcourt diffĂ©rents autres points en Ă©coutant les changements de sons intĂ©ressants que l’on note au fur et Ă  mesure sur notre photo. On poursuit ensuite en dĂ©plaçant le premier tournevis sur un autre point et en recommençant notre parcours avec le second. On rĂ©pĂšte cette procĂ©dure jusqu’à ce que la totalitĂ© du circuit ait Ă©tĂ© parcouru ou lorsque nous estimons avoir trouvĂ© toutes les modifications souhaitĂ©es. Les Bends les plus courants sont gĂ©nĂ©ralement: la sortie audio permettant l’amplification, le volume, l’overdrive/distortion, les glitches, les boucles, le bouton reset. Dans certains cas, les Bends ne sont pas compatibles entre-eux. La machine plantera irrĂ©mĂ©diablement dĂšs lors qu’on activera plusieurs Bends simultanĂ©ment. On peut alors dĂ©cider de continuer la quĂȘte des modifications compatibles ou bien Ă©viter d’en activer plusieurs Ă  la fois. CĂąblage et placement des composants La prochaine Ă©tape est le raccordement des diffĂ©rents points du circuit trouvĂ©s prĂ©cĂ©demment. On les relie entre eux en soudant un fin cĂąble de cuivre sur chaque point. On placera ensuite, par exemple, un interrupteur entre deux de ces cĂąbles allant de paires, de maniĂšre Ă  (dĂ©s)activer notre court-circuit. Il est aussi possible dans certains cas de remplacer ou coupler l’interrupteur Ă  un potentiomĂštre ou une photo-rĂ©sistance qui appliquera une plus ou moins grande rĂ©sistance au passage du courant, attĂ©nuant ou accentuant ainsi l’effet du court-circuit (trĂšs utile pour les effets de pitch/volume/overdrive). Il est prĂ©fĂ©rable de ne pas souder le composant avant de l’avoir montĂ© sur le chĂąssis de la machine, de maniĂšre Ă  ne pas le dessouder par inadvertance lors de son placement. Utile aussi pour connaitre la bonne longueur des cĂąbles et leur cheminement et ainsi Ă©viter les surplus qui empĂȘcheraient la fermeture du boitier. Pour percer le chĂąssis, on utilisera une petite perceuse ou un Dremel. Le positionnement des composants est libre mais attention Ă  choisir un emplacement qui ne gĂȘnera ni la fermeture, ni l’ergonomie du boitier. En effet, un composant mal placĂ© et difficilement accessible pourrait compromettre la spontanĂ©itĂ© de la performance. Afin de ne pas trop endommager le chĂąssis, il est aussi possible de raccorder tous les composants sur un boitier externe qui servira de contrĂŽleur. Dans ce cas, l’utilisation d’un cĂąble nappe tel que l’on trouve dans un ordinateur peut ĂȘtre trĂšs pratique pour ne pas avoir des dizaines de fils qui sortent du chĂąssis (un cĂąble SCSI est parfait pour ce type de montage).

756 Matmos - Supreme Balloon
The arcs of rising and falling pitches that start this song reminded us of a rainbow, and the title stuck: any resemblance to fluttering symbols of homo-nationalist pride are side effects. People have asked us about the Latin kitsch aspect of the song, and we plead guilty to a great love of the Richard Hayman "The Genuine Electric Latin Love Machine" Moog novelty LP from 1969. Having lived in the Mission District of San Francisco for seven years up until our recent move to Baltimore, we have had enough casual exposure to actual Mexican and Salvadorean music to know that this bears only the faintest relation to the real thing. Keith Fullerton Whitman contributed some tasty squelches and zaps from his Doepfer modular synth to brighten the corners, but not everything on here is that high-tech. Consider the lowly stylophone, a handheld novelty instrument popular with British schoolkids that was immortalized during the rave era in the cheesy techno banger "Stylophonia" by the fabulously named UK crew Two Little Boys. The stylophone that is played on this record was sent to us in the mail by a well-wisher and we thank him for this unexpected present. We are even more grateful to Safety Scissors, who forgave us when M. C. Schmidt broke his MS-20 filter knob by tweaking it too vigorously while recording the "horn" part of this song. It's all been patched up now.

727 How To Create an Antique Mirror Effect | Apartment Therapy DC
How To Create an Antique Mirror Effect Mclain Wiesand, a Baltimore-based custom furniture company, has made a name for itself by producing handcrafted pieces that capture the feel of real antiques. One of the techniques they use for aging mirror is wonderfully simple and serves as the inspiration for this how to. Creating an antique mirror effect is an inexpensive way to revamp a flea market find, or add a new layer of interest and depth to an ordinary wall mirror. Almost any type of mirror can be aged using this technique, including mirrored plexiglass. Supplies ‱ Mirrored glass or plexiglass. Due to the type of paint applied to the reflective coating, inexpensive, craft-store mirror works wonderfully. ‱ Latex or other gloves for hand protection. ‱ Paint stripper. Most types work fine. For a less toxic product, Citristrip works well. ‱ Plastic putty spreader or putty knife. ‱ Modern Masters Metal Effects Black Patina. This patina solution is essentially an acid that eats at the reflective surface of the mirror. There are probably other products that work similarly, but Modern Masters products work well and can be found online or in most art supply stores or specialty paint stores. ‱ 1” chip brush (or similar brush). ‱ Silver paint of choice. Steps Step 1: (Image 2, above) Wearing gloves, place mirror face down on cardboard or other protected surface in a well-ventilated area. Apply stripper generously to back of mirror and allow to sit for a few hours, or until paint can be easily removed with plastic scraper. It is not necessary for all of the paint to be removed; generally speaking, 80-90% should suffice. When paint has been stripped, wash mirror with soap and water and allow to dry. Step 2: (Images 3 & 4) Place stripped mirror face down on clean cardboard or other protected surface. Dip chip brush in Modern Masters Metal Patina Solution and gradually apply it to the raw reflective surface of the mirror. As mirror tends to age from the edges inward, it is best to apply patina solution in heavier amounts around the edges of the mirror. In a matter of minutes (or less), the patina solution will begin to eat away at the reflective surface. Other application techniques that produce nice effects are spattering and light directional brushing of patina solution. Continue applying solution until desired level of ageing is achieved. Rinse with water to neutralize the reaction and allow to dry. Step 3: (photos 5 & 6) This next step involves reapplying paint to the back of the mirror. The color paint you choose will be visible through the spots created by the patina solution. The dark areas of aged antique mirrors tend to be a dark silver-grey but depending on the silvering technique used, can range from gold to pale silver to black. One method that produced nice results is a combination of dark and light silver paints, applied randomly (per images). Apply paint until the reflective surface is completely covered.

If you're running an AJAX application with content that you'd like to appear in search results, we have a new process that, when implemented, can help Google (and potentially other search engines) crawl and index your content. Historically, AJAX applications have been difficult for search engines to process because AJAX content is produced dynamically by the browser and thus not visible to crawlers. While there are existing methods for dealing with this problem, they involve regular manual maintenance to keep the content up-to-date. Learn more Learn why search engines don't see the content you see and what needs to happen to fix this. Getting started guide Get started in making your AJAX application visible to search engines. If you are in a hurry, you can start here, but AJAX crawling is a complex topic, so we recommend reading all the documentation.

720 Common Security Mistakes in Web Applications - Smashing Magazine
Web application developers today need to be skilled in a multitude of disciplines. It’s necessary to build an application that is user friendly, highly performant, accessible and secure, all while executing partially in an untrusted environment that you, the developer, have no control over. I speak, of course, about the User Agent. Most commonly seen in the form of a web browser, but in reality, one never really knows what’s on the other end of the HTTP connection. There are many things to worry about when it comes to security on the Web. Is your site protected against denial of service attacks? Is your user data safe? Can your users be tricked into doing things they would not normally do? Is it possible for an attacker to pollute your database with fake data? Is it possible for an attacker to gain unauthorized access to restricted parts of your site? Unfortunately, unless we’re careful with the code we write, the answer to these questions can often be one we’d rather not hear. We’ll skip over denial of service attacks in this article, but take a close look at the other issues. To be more conformant with standard terminology, we’ll talk about Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Phishing, Shell injection and SQL injection. We’ll also assume PHP as the language of development, but the problems apply regardless of language, and solutions will be similar in other languages.

719 Facebook owns us — Copy me happy
Facebook has become the event planning system. It’s the place where you have all your friends (and other people) somewhat sorted and organized. All in all, it’s the organized system in the chaos that is otherwise known as the internets. This is leading Facebook towards a virtual monopoly. There are lots of issues with monopolies, but one of the more interesting ones when it comes to Facebook is the impact is has on our social lives, online as well as offline.

704 What Is User Experience Design? Overview, Tools And Resources - Smashing Magazine
Websites and Web applications have become progressively more complex as our industry’s technologies and methodologies advance. What used to be a one-way static medium has evolved into a very rich and interactive experience. But regardless of how much has changed in the production process, a website’s success still hinges on just one thing: how users perceive it. “Does this website give me value? Is it easy to use? Is it pleasant to use?” These are the questions that run through the minds of visitors as they interact with our products, and they form the basis of their decisions on whether to become regular users. User experience design is all about striving to make them answer “Yes” to all of those questions. This guide aims to familiarize you with the professional discipline of UX design in the context of Web-based systems such as websites and applications. [Offtopic: by the way, did you know that we are publishing a Smashing eBook Series? The brand new eBook #3 is Mastering Photoshop For Web Design, written by our Photoshop-expert Thomas Giannattasio.]

701 How To Convince The Client That Your Design Is Perfect - Smashing Magazine
As designers who deal with clients, we all have to face one situation, no matter how difficult and uncomfortable, and that is guiding the client to accept that your design is perfect. Now, you already have the project, so this is not a matter of convincing them to pick you for the job. This is about getting them to see that your design satisfies their requirements and contains everything they want. We all have to take on this role of virtual tour guide and lead them through the project’s twists and turns, ensuring that the best interests of the client and website are served. We have to be the lighthouse, guiding the clients to shore. (Image credit) In the end, the final decision falls to the client, but there are times — and most of us have experienced them — when the client’s lack of expertise in the field affect the quality of the design. In such times, we have a responsibility to do everything in our power to convince the client that the design is perfect as it is, and that any further alteration would impair the website’s ability to communicate everything it needs to. This confrontation is not welcome by either party, but it is certainly necessary. Many designers want to avoid conflict and, as a result, cave to their clients at the slightest sign of disagreement, rather than spend time trying to convince them that they stand on the right side of the design decision. This is often a mistake and does not serve the design, which should be the paramount consideration. We owe it to our creative work to argue for whatever serves the design beyond all else, even though the client is footing the bill. We may end up having to give in to the client, but at least we tried. Below is an overview of some tips and techniques you can employ when you find yourself butting heads with a client. These approaches might work individually or in combination, but they all at least offer a launching point to help you put your best foot forward and lead the client exactly where they need to go.

691 visualizing.org
Visualizing.org is a community of creative people working to make sense of complex issues through data and design
 and it’s a shared space and free resource to help you achieve this goal. Why Visualizing.org? By some estimates, we now create more data each year than in the entirety of prior human history. Data visualization helps us approach, interpret, and extract knowledge from this information. Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen government agencies, NGOs, and companies open up their data for the public to see and use. And we’ve seen data visualization figure more prominently in design curricula, conference programs, and the media. We created Visualizing.org because we want to help connect the proliferation of public data
 with a community that can help us understand this data
 with the general public. What is Visualizing.org? What can I do on the site? For designers: Visualizing is a place to showcase your work, get feedback, ensure that your work is seen by lots of people and gets used by teachers, journalists, and conference organizers to help educate the public about various world issues Visualizing is a free resource to search for data Use Visualizing to keep up with and be inspired by the latest work from other designers and design schools Learn about new visualization tools, blogs, books and other resources to help your work Everything you upload remains your sole and exclusive property and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike License For teachers and schools: Visualizing is a place to exhibit the collective work of your students, organize assignments and class projects, and help your students find data for their own visualizations We’re working on new tools to help you share teaching material with other teachers As an Academic Partner, your students are eligible to participate in various design competitions – we’re hosting the first Visualizing Marathon in New York in October To learn more, contact Saira Jesani For bloggers and journalists: Visualizing is a resource to find data visualizations about a wide variety of world issues to inform and accompany your own reporting – and it’s easy to embed visualizations and widgets from Visualizing on your own site For conference organizers: As a Knowledge Partner, Visualizing allows you to use data visualizations at your conferences under a Creative Commons License To learn more, contact Saira Jesani For all: Visualizing is a new and fun online resource to learn more about the world in all its complexity and inter-dependence -- and become more comfortable with data and how it can be visually represented How does it work? The site is open and free to use. Everything you upload remains your sole and exclusive property and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike License. Simply put, this means that anyone can share, copy, remix, or build upon the visualization as long as: (i) it is used non-commercially; and (ii) the visualization’s creator and source are credited.

679 Trevor Marshall's ETI3600, ETI4600 International Music Synthesisers and Maplin 3800 and Maplin 5600s Stereo Synthesisers
Many years ago the Australian magazine "Electronics Today International" published my designs for two partly digital, mostly analog, Electronic Music Synthesisers. the ETI 3600 and ETI 4600. Both were made available as kits of components Barry Wilkinson at ETI was responsible for the final packaging and kitting coordination. Maplin Electronics Ltd.(in the UK) subsequently picked up the designs, which they marketed as as the Maplin models 3800 and 5600s Electronic Music Synthesisers At the time I held two Australian provisional patents for the technologies I used in the Synthesiser designs. One related to the method for generating sawtooth waveforms, the other was for the method of using commutated resistors in voltage controlled filters. I never made any money out of the designs, or the patents, which have long ago been allowed to lapse. But it was fun! The original constructional articles for the ETI 3600/4600 can be found in these PDFs: October 1973, December 1973, January 1974, Feb 1974, March 1974, April 1974, July 1974, March 1975, April 1975, May 1975, August 1975 Although the earliest (4004) microprocessors were available at that time, it was not until the late-70's that I first started programming fully digital (Signetics 2650 based) Microcomputer systems. Consequently my early digital designs were hardware, and not firmware, based. Of course, these days, everything in my hardware and firmware is based on software designs - even the interconnections are controlled by the software in the EPLDs and PALs, instead of by wires. So many things have changed over the years.... Here is a mug shot of the Maplin 3800:

655 Patchbays
Of the technical queries received at Sound On Sound, many fall into the 'hardy perenial' category. One common source of these patchbays and their role in the project studio. Hugh Robjohns provides some answers... Walk into any professional studio and you will find a patchbay (or jackfield, to use the original British term) lurking in a rack somewhere. This kind of facility might seem totally superfluous in a simple home studio, but once the number of outboard units and sound sources increases, a patchbay quickly becomes an essential facility rather than an expensive luxury. The different types available, their setup, and their exact function in a studio can be the source of considerable confusion. In an effort to set things straight, I have tried to answer many of the most common patchbay questions we receive at Sound On Sound.

551 The Top Idea in Your Mind
I realized recently that what one thinks about in the shower in the morning is more important than I'd thought. I knew it was a good time to have ideas. Now I'd go further: now I'd say it's hard to do a really good job on anything you don't think about in the shower. Everyone who's worked on difficult problems is probably familiar with the phenomenon of working hard to figure something out, failing, and then suddenly seeing the answer a bit later while doing something else. There's a kind of thinking you do without trying to. I'm increasingly convinced this type of thinking is not merely helpful in solving hard problems, but necessary. The tricky part is, you can only control it indirectly. [1] I think most people have one top idea in their mind at any given time. That's the idea their thoughts will drift toward when they're allowed to drift freely. And this idea will thus tend to get all the benefit of that type of thinking, while others are starved of it. Which means it's a disaster to let the wrong idea become the top one in your mind. What made this clear to me was having an idea I didn't want as the top one in my mind for two long stretches.

529 SynthesisWorkshops
synth modular Sound synthesis and sound design Music has brought pleasure and entertainment to mankind throughout the whole of history. Each person is by nature equipped with one of the most elaborate and emotional musical instruments; the human voice. Whenever people feel good music seems to fit the occasion, and it is considered quite natural to hum or sing a song. Musical instruments have brought their own moods to music and at the current moment in human evolution there is an enormous variety of musical instruments available. The twentieth century has seen the development of a range of new and exciting electronic musical instruments. These electronic instruments are very flexible, they can produce a wide range of timbres and can be amplified to whatever loudness level sounds best for the occasion. Most of these electronic instruments are played by a keyboard, but in essence the keyboard can be replaced by any electromechanical device that is able to transform a movement caused by a human interaction into an electrical signal that can drive the sound generating core of the electronic instrument. All sorts of technical and scientific developments have helped to create electronic instruments and the human interface to play them. Still, music is an art and not really a hard science, although music and sound have for a long time been subject to various scientific research. An important realization is that science can not really explain why much music is such a pleasure to listen to and such a joy to make. Which is not a bad thing, as probably no one is waiting for science to take the fun out of music by applying formalized rules and templates on what is also subject to ‘feel’. So, although this book covers techniques that lean heavily on scientific research, the application of these techniques will in general be aimed at creating fun. There are a lot of professionals working with sound and even more people that make music for their personal enjoyment. Mastery of sound synthesis is valuable to all of them. Still, it won’t be easy to please everyone with one single book, as some people will be more interested in how things work and others might want practical examples that just work. The aim of this book is that it can at least be used as a practical guide in workshops and courses in electronic music, covering some essential basics that are needed to operate the equipment used in sound synthesis in a way that makes some sense. Additionally it can be used to explore techniques to find out how they can help in the development of one’s own musical style. Sound synthesis is the art of creating sounds by using suitable electronic means, using either analog or digital electronic devices. Sound design is the art of creating particular sounds using sound synthesis techniques. The definition of sound design as used here might be confusing to some, as the name sound design is also used in the discipline in industrial design that occupies itself with how mass produced objects should sound. Examples are how the sound of cars or ladyshaves are ‘designed’ to sound pleasing while in use. Which of course has nothing to do at all with music or sound synthesizers. This book puts the emphasis on the various synthesis techniques for musical purposes and how to setup sound synthesizers to create a large range of characteristic musical sounds. The art of musical sound design is left to the artist.

523 Yamaha CS-01 Resonance Mod
Just to get this up here. I hope to make this clearer soon... This shows how you can modify the Yamaha CS-01 Mk1 to: 1) have variable resonance control, by hijacking the Breath Control VCF potentiometer a) remove the 10k resistor near the VCF chip. b) cut the traces (or lift the pins) of the Breath Control VCF pot that connect it to GND and the Breath Control jack. I lifted the pins just to avoid cutting PCB traces c) remove the 39k resistor tied to the wiper of the VCF pot. d) solder wires from one side of the pot and the pot wiper and run these wires over to the holes that used to contain the 10k resistor near the VCF chip e) I'd suggest adjusting the resonance trimmer that's near the VCF chip to make your new Resonance control self-oscillate near the end of the rotation. why? because this filter gets out of control in a very loud and dramatic way. I don't think this VCF chip was designed for stable self-oscillation - that may explain why, in the CS-01 Mk2, when they gave you analog control of the resonance, they used a different 24dB VCF chip. 2) have variable VCA "drone" by hijacking the Breath Control VCA potentiometer. a) remove the 1k resistor that grounds usually-closed terminal of the breath control jack to GND b) solder a 47k resistor from the ungrounded, non-wiper terminal of the pot to -9V. c) when the VCA drone pot is now fully on, you'll always get a DCO-VCF signal running to the power amp. this mod keeps the VCA only partially open, and you can still superimpose the EG over the drone. I did this because I don't have a spec sheet on the VCA chip and I didn't want to risk having the EG slamming the VCA while the drone was going full on (basically, I don't know the max CV that the VCA chip can tolerate). so if you just use the drone, you'll have to increase the volume at the power amp. But now the front-panel VCA slider actually becomes useful, since if you don't want the EG to affect the drone, just turn that down to nothing! Sorry I don't have actual pics of the mod up! Perhaps someday soon...

518 LA MUSIQUE INDUSTRIELLE
QU’EST-CE QUE LA MUSIQUE INDUSTRIELLE ? Vous trouverez chez les disquaires bien achalandĂ©s un coin rĂ©servĂ© aux albums d’ " indus ", souvent mĂ©langĂ©s au gothique, Ă  la cold ou encore aux indĂ©pendants. Les couleurs noire et grise dominent les pochettes et les noms des groupes sont souvent longs et imprononçables, Ă  consonance allemande ou anglaise. Pour continuer dans le clichĂ©, on peut dĂ©crire la musique industrielle comme un style basĂ© sur des percussions mĂ©talliques qui martĂšlent, accompagnĂ©es de bruits agressifs souvent dissonants et de voix trafiquĂ©es, criĂ©es plus que chantĂ©es. En fait, l’indus est pour beaucoup une musique suspecte, apprĂ©ciĂ©e par d’étranges mĂ©lomanes qui n’auraient pas compris que la musique moderne est faite pour distraire, pour danser ou encore adoucir les mƓurs. Peu de gens savent en fait ce qu’est l’industriel Ă  proprement parler. Pourtant ce style a Ă©tĂ© trĂšs productif et une partie de la musique actuelle s’en inspire. A la base, l’industriel est un mouvement de contestation sociale et artistique. Il rejette le contrĂŽle de la musique populaire par les businessmen, les mĂ©dias et tous les hommes de pouvoir. Son essor est marquĂ© par la crĂ©ation d’Industrial Records, Ă  Londres, Ă  la fin des annĂ©es 1970 par le groupe Throbbing Gristle. C’est un des premiers labels indĂ©pendants, une entreprise de production et de diffusion de cassettes audio et de 33 tours, qui laisse ses musiciens s’exprimer sans contrainte, ni censure, ni souci de rentabilitĂ©. Il dĂ©veloppe une " stratĂ©gie de guĂ©rilla " contre les major company, ces entreprises qui soumettent la musique populaire aux lois du marchĂ©. Plus gĂ©nĂ©ralement, le mouvement industriel vomit l’industrie des loisirs orchestrĂ©e par les grands mĂ©dias. Il cherche Ă  faire rĂ©flĂ©chir sur la propagande et le marketing, sur l’utilisation de l’art et des diverses techniques de communication pour convaincre et dominer. L’ambition est de crĂ©er une alternative Ă  la culture de masse afin de lutter contre l’uniformisation des esprits. Pape de l’industriel, Genesis P-Orridge (alias Neil Megson) explique qu’au dĂ©part le but est de "savoir jusqu’oĂč on pouvait mĂ©tamorphoser et coller le son, prĂ©senter des sons complexes et non-divertissants dans une situation de culture populaire, afin de convaincre et de convertir. Nous voulions rĂ©investir la musique rock avec un contenu, une motivation et un risque. " Apparu en mĂȘme temps que le punk, l’industriel se veut plus radical, plus rĂ©flĂ©chi et surtout plus novateur en matiĂšre musicale. Il milite pour l’éclatement des codes musicaux qu’ils soient rock, jazz, classique ou pop. Recherchant l’imprĂ©vu, fuyant le formatage, il puise dans diffĂ©rents styles. Par ailleurs, de nouveaux instruments sont incorporĂ©s Ă  la musique. Les membres d’EinstĂŒrzende Neubauten utilisent des perceuses, de l’eau, des tĂŽles, ou mĂȘme leurs dents pour produire des sons originaux. DĂšs le dĂ©part, les instruments Ă©lectroniques ont Ă©tĂ© privilĂ©giĂ©s : boites Ă  rythme, synthĂ©tiseurs et les tout premiers Ă©chantillonneurs (sampleurs), dĂšs le dĂ©but des annĂ©es 1980. Ces instruments Ă©lectroniques aidant, l’indus a Ă©tĂ© produit par des non-musiciens et a dĂ©veloppĂ© la rĂ©pĂ©titivitĂ© (utilisation des sĂ©quenceurs). C’est dans ce sens que l’industriel est pour une bonne part Ă  l’origine de la techno. L’industriel ne se limite pas au dĂ©part Ă  un courant musical, c’est une tentative d’art total. Soit les musiciens indus sont des touches Ă  tout en matiĂšre artistique (Genesis P-Orridge, Jim Thirlwell), soit ils collaborent frĂ©quemment avec des cinĂ©astes, des troupes de thĂ©Ăątre ou de danse contemporaine. Pour les disques, le graphisme des pochettes compte parfois autant que la musique elle-mĂȘme. Dans toutes ses expressions artistiques, l’industriel recherche la provocation la plus radicale, le choc et la confusion. Les thĂšmes dĂ©veloppĂ©s sont autant de tabous : le totalitarisme sous toutes ses formes (propagande, uniformes militaires, symboles paĂŻens, plus ou moins fascistes ou nazis) ; le sado-masochisme, bouffonnerie spectaculaire parodiant les rapports humains ; la mort. C’est un constat froid des horreurs du monde, l’irruption de la laideur sous toutes ses formes dans la musique populaire. Mais attention, l’humour, le sarcasme et le cynisme sont essentiels dans l’indus. L’ironie et l’ambiguĂŻtĂ© sont fondatrices : la musique qui se proclame industrielle s’oppose Ă  l’industrie de la musique et aux valeurs de la sociĂ©tĂ© industrielle. Les membres de Throbbing Gristle troquaient volontiers leurs uniformes pour des chemises hawaĂŻennes, Current 93 s’est pris de passion pour le hĂ©ros enfantin Oui-Oui (Noddy), Laibach a parodiĂ© pompeusement les Beatles, Clair Obscur a chantĂ© les cours de la bourse, aprĂšs avoir smurfĂ© au goulag, et Foetus s’est fait connaĂźtre par une parodie de disco en l’honneur du marquis de Sade (avant MylĂšne Farmer !). Tous les musiciens qui se prĂ©tendent industriels mais s’expriment sans cette ironie fondatrice ou sans vĂ©ritable recherche musicale utilisent le terme abusivement. DĂšs 1981, Throbbing Gristle se sĂ©pare. Genesis P-Orridge explique : " nous avons quitter un milieu envahi par des idĂ©es et des gens malsains, parce que ces gens ont choisi de ne pas comprendre ce que nous disions. C’est devenu une surenchĂšre de provocation ". On a assistĂ© en effet Ă  une dĂ©rive et un appauvrissement musical. L’industriel est devenu un style parmi les autres. Comme tout mouvement contestataire, il a Ă©tĂ© rĂ©cupĂ©rĂ©e ; Ă  la fois par les mĂ©dias et par des mouvements d’extrĂȘme droite. Ainsi on a pu entendre, dans des publicitĂ©s tĂ©lĂ©visĂ©es, des percussions mĂ©talliques pour vanter les mĂ©rites de slips trĂšs masculins, ou bien des bruits de mĂ©canique qui dĂ©raille sortant d’un autoradio, pour vendre une voiture Ă  la mĂ©canique irrĂ©prochable. Les liens avĂ©rĂ©s avec l’extrĂȘme-droite ne concernent que quelques uns : en particulier Boyd Rice (du groupe NON) et plusieurs pĂąles ersatz du groupe de folk industriel Death in June, engluĂ©s dans une soupe europĂ©aniste nausĂ©abonde, oĂč se mĂȘlent rĂ©volution conservatrice, paganisme nordique ou celtique, thĂšmes guerriers et romantisme noir. Ces connivences ont jetĂ© le discrĂ©dit sur tout le mouvement industriel. C’est oublier que les artistes d’Industrial records refusaient de s’exprimer sur le terrain politique traditionnel, que des groupes se sont engagĂ©s Ă  gauche (Test Dept), tandis que d’autres ont affirmĂ© leur rejet de l’extrĂȘme-droite (Front 242). Beaucoup cependant rĂ©pugnent Ă  se justifier et continuent de jouer le jeu dangereux de la provocation fasciste. Il y a peu le groupe allemand Substanz t. a Ă©chantillonnĂ© la phrase suivante dans un morceau : " if you don’t like fascism, don’t play industrial music " (compilation teknoir, 1998).

484 Why did so many successful entrepreneurs and startups come out of PayPal? Answered by Insiders
Why did so many successful entrepreneurs and startups come out of PayPal? I long have been fascinated by the extraordinary achievement from the ex-Paypal team and wonder about the reasons behind their success. In the past, mass media tried to answer this question several times but still couldn’t give us a clear answer. I once asked David Sacks the same question during an event in Los Angeles. He told me the secret is that Paypal has built a “scrappy” culture. No matter what problems they faced, they would find a way to solve them. I kind of got the idea, but was still confused about the execution details. So when I saw some of the past Paypal employees answering this question on Quora, I was super excited! After all, they should be the only ones who can tell people the inside stories. Below are some highlights of their answers. *If you want to check out the sources or leave your comments, please go to here and here. On Talent Management “Peter and Max assembled an unusual critical mass of entrepreneurial talent, primarily due to their ability to recognize young people with extraordinary ability (the median age of *execs* on the S1 filing was 30). But the poor economy allowed us to close an abnormal number of offers, as virtually nobody other than eBay and (in part) google was hiring in 2000-02.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Extreme Focus (driven by Peter): Peter required that everyone be tasked with exactly one priority. He would refuse to discuss virtually anything else with you except what was currently assigned as your #1 initiative. Even our annual review forms in 2001 required each employee to identify their single most valuable contribution to the company.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Dedication to individual accomplishment: Teams were almost considered socialist institutions. Most great innovations at PayPal were driven by one person who then conscripted others to support, adopt, implement the new idea. If you identified the 8-12 most critical innovations at PayPal (or perhaps even the most important 25), almost every one had a single person inspire it (and often it drive it to implementation). As a result, David enforced an anti-meeting culture where any meeting that included more than 3-4 people was deemed suspect and subject to immediate adjournment if he gauged it inefficient. Our annual review forms in 2002 included a direction to rate the employee on “avoids imposing on others’ time, e.g. scheduling unnecessary meetings.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Refusal to accept constraints, external or internal:We were expected to pursue our #1 priority with extreme dispatch (NOW) and vigor. To borrow an apt phrase, employees were expected to “come to work every day willing to be fired, to circumvent any order aimed at stopping your dream.” Jeremy Stoppelman has relayed elsewhere the story about an email he sent around criticizing management that he expected to get him fired and instead got him promoted. Peter did not accept no for answer: If you couldn’t solve the problem, someone else would be soon assigned to do it.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Driven problem solvers: PayPal had a strong bias toward hiring (and promoting / encouraging, as Keith mentions) smart, driven problem solvers, rather than subject matter experts. Very few of the top performers at the company had any prior experience with payments, and many of the best employees had little or no prior background building Internet products. I worked on the fraud analytics team at PayPal, and most of our best people had never before done anything related to fraud detection. If he’d approached things “traditionally”, Max would have gone out and hired people who had been building logistic regression models for banks for 20 years but never innovated, and fraud losses would likely have swallowed the company.” (by Mike Greenfield, former Sr. Fraud R&D Scientist of Paypal) “Self-sufficiency – individuals and small teams were given fairly complex objectives and expected to figure out how to achieve them on their own. If you needed to integrate with an outside vendor, you picked up the phone yourself and called; you didn’t wait for a BD person to become available. You did (the first version of) mockups and wireframes yourself; you didn’t wait for a designer to become available. You wrote (the first draft of) site copy yourself; you didn’t wait for a content writer.” (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal) On Culture & Ideology “Extreme bias towards action – early PayPal was simply a really *productive* workplace. This was partly driven by the culture of self-sufficiency. PayPal is and was, after all, a web service; and the company managed to ship prodigious amounts of relatively high-quality web software for a lot of years in a row early on. Yes, we had the usual politics between functional groups, but either individual heroes or small, high-trust teams more often than not found ways to deliver projects on-time.” (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal) “Willingness to try – even in a data-driven culture, you’ll always run in to folks who either don’t believe you have collected the right supporting data for a given decision or who just aren’t comfortable when data contradicts their gut feeling. In many companies, those individuals would be the death of decision-making. At PayPal, I felt like you could almost always get someone to give it a *try* and then let performance data tell us whether to maintain the decision or rollback.” (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal) “Data-driven decision making – PayPal was filled with smart, opinionated people who were often at logger-heads. The way to win arguments was to bring data to bear. So you never started a sentence like this “I feel like it’s a problem that our users can’t do X”, instead you’d do your homework first and then come to the table with “35% of our [insert some key metric here] are caused by the lack of X functionality
” (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal) “Radical transparency on metrics: All employees were expected to be facile with the metrics driving the business. Otherwise, how could one expect each employee to make rational calculations and decisions on their own every day? To enforce this norm, almost every all-hands meeting consisted of distributing a printed Excel spreadsheet to the assembled masses and Peter conducting a line by line review of our performance (this is only a modest exaggeration).” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Vigorous debate, often via email: Almost every important issue had champions and critics. These were normally resolved not by official edict but by a vigorous debate that could be very intense. Being able to articulate and defend a strategy or product in a succinct, compelling manner with empirical analysis and withstand a withering critique was a key attribute of almost every key contributor. I still recall the trepidation I confronted when I was informed that I needed to defend the feasibility of my favorite “baby” to Max for the first time.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal) “Extreme Pressure – PayPal was a very difficult business with many major issues to solve. We were able to see our colleagues work under extreme pressure and hence we learned who we could rely on and trust.” (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)

474 Why Intelligent People Fail
Why Intelligent People Fail Content from Sternberg, R. (1994). In search of the human mind. New York: Harcourt Brace. 1. Lack of motivation. A talent is irrelevant if a person is not motivated to use it. Motivation may be external (for example, social approval) or internal (satisfaction from a job well-done, for instance). External sources tend to be transient, while internal sources tend to produce more consistent performance. 2. Lack of impulse control. Habitual impulsiveness gets in the way of optimal performance. Some people do not bring their full intellectual resources to bear on a problem but go with the first solution that pops into their heads. 3. Lack of perserverance and perseveration. Some people give up too easily, while others are unable to stop even when the quest will clearly be fruitless. 4. Using the wrong abilities. People may not be using the right abilities for the tasks in which they are engaged. 5. Inability to translate thought into action. Some people seem buried in thought. They have good ideas but rarely seem able to do anything about them. 6. Lack of product orientation. Some people seem more concerned about the process than the result of activity. 7. Inability to complete tasks. For some people nothing ever draws to a close. Perhaps it’s fear of what they would do next or fear of becoming hopelessly enmeshed in detail. 8. Failure to initiate. Still others are unwilling or unable to initiate a project. It may be indecision or fear of commitment. 9. Fear of failure. People may not reach peak performance because they avoid the really important challenges in life. 10. Procrastination. Some people are unable to act without pressure. They may also look for little things to do in order to put off the big ones. 11. Misattribution of blame. Some people always blame themselves for even the slightest mishap. Some always blame others. 12. Excessive self-pity. Some people spend more time feeling sorry for themselves than expending the effort necessary to overcome the problem. 13. Excessive dependency. Some people expect others to do for them what they ought to be doing themselves. 14. Wallowing in personal difficulties. Some people let their personal difficulties interfere grossly with their work. During the course of life, one can expect some real joys and some real sorrows. Maintaining a proper perspective is often difficult. 15. Distractibility and lack of concentration. Even some very intelligent people have very short attention spans. 16. Spreading oneself too think or too thick. Undertaking too many activities may result in none being completed on time. Undertaking too few can also result in missed opportunities and reduced levels of accomplishment. 17. Inability to delay gratification. Some people reward themselves and are rewarded by others for finishing small tasks, while avoiding bigger tasks that would earn them larger rewards. 18. Inability to see the forest for the trees. Some people become obsessed with details and are either unwilling or unable to see or deal with the larger picture in the projects they undertake. 19. Lack of balance between critical, analytical thinking and creative, synthetic thinking. It is important for people to learn what kind of thinking is expected of them in each situation. 20. Too little or too much self-confidence. Lack of self-confidence can gnaw away at a person’s ability to get things done and become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Conversely, individuals with too much self-confidence may not know when to admit they are wrong or in need of self-improvement.

464 Ksplice » Attack of the Cosmic Rays! - System administration and software blog
It’s a well-documented fact that RAM in modern computers is susceptible to occasional random bit flips due to various sources of noise, most commonly high-energy cosmic rays. By some estimates, you can even expect error rates as high as one error per 4GB of RAM per day! Many servers these days have ECC RAM, which uses extra bits to store error-correcting codes that let them correct most bit errors, but ECC RAM is still fairly rare in desktops, and unheard-of in laptops. For me, bitflips due to cosmic rays are one of those problems I always assumed happen to “other people”. I also assumed that even if I saw random cosmic-ray bitflips, my computer would probably just crash, and I’d never really be able to tell the difference from some random kernel bug. A few weeks ago, though, I encountered some bizarre behavior on my desktop, that honestly just didn’t make sense. I spent about half an hour digging to discover what had gone wrong, and eventually determined, conclusively, that my problem was a single undetected flipped bit in RAM. I can’t prove whether the problem was due to cosmic rays, bad RAM, or something else, but in any case, I hope you find this story interesting and informative.

440 A List Apart: Articles: Taking Advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 with Modernizr
Ten years ago, only the most cutting-edge web designers used CSS for layouts and styling. Browser support for CSS layouts was slim and buggy, so these people advocated for web standards adherence, while creating hacks that made CSS layouts work in all browsers. One hack that became widely used was browser sniffing: Detecting which browser and version the user had by looking at the navigator.userAgent property in JavaScript. Browser sniffing allowed for quick and easy code forking, allowing developers to target different browsers with different instructions. Today, CSS-based layouts are commonplace and every browser has pretty solid support for them. But now we have CSS3 and HTML5, and the situation is repeating itself—different browsers demonstrate varying levels of support for these new technologies. We’ve smartened up, however, and no longer employ CSS hacks nor use browser sniffing—an unreliable, poor practice. We’ve also convinced more and more clients that websites don’t need to look exactly the same in every browser. So how do we deal with this new but familiar problem? Simple: We use feature detection, which means that we do not ask the browser “who are you?” and make unreliable assumptions from there on. Instead we ask the browser, “can you do this and that?” It’s a simple way to test browser capabilities, but doing all these tests manually all the time gets tiresome. To solve that problem (and others), you can use Modernizr.

428 Alain Neffe and the Home-Taped Electronic Music Revolution
Alain Neffe launched his first tape label at home in Belgium in 1981. He called it Insane Music Contact and his first installment was called Insane Music for Insane People. Thus began a nearly thirty year foray into home-made, visionary and utterly unfashionable electronic music that has hardly made anyone involved a household name. Insane Music released 55 titles in its most prolific years (1981-87). Five of these were vinyl records and the rest were cassettes tapes. Why cassettes tapes? Magnetic tape was the obvious solution to the problem facing many artists working without record contracts in those days. Cassettes could be recorded at home, produced at home, dubbed at home, and sold or traded by mail. No need for tasteless outside producers and marketing mojo—one needed only leave home to buy more tapes. Says Neffe, “I could copy the tapes on demand. Releasing an LP required that you print 500 copies and 1000 copies of the cover sleeve, and everything had to be paid up front 
 if the buyer didn’t like the music, he or she could wipe it out and record something else on it.” Mr. Neffe was not the only one out there recording, selling and trading tapes by mail. On both sides of the Atlantic, home cassette technology was permitting the release of much groundbreaking and breathlessly beautiful work, as well as some noxious and otherwise self-indulgent wanking—that coat of many colors we call the DIY (do-it-yourself) Revolution. As early as 1974, Albrecht/d. self-released a cassette entitled Amsterdam Op De Dam in Germany. In 1976, Throbbing Gristle was distributing tapes of their infamous live recordings, and in 1977, the French electro-industrial unit Die Form began releasing tapes on their own Bain Total label. 1980 saw the release of two monumental self-released cassettes, The Storm Bugs’ A Safe Substitute and Colin Potter’s The Ghost Office. In Japan, 1980 saw the release of Merzbow’s first two cassettes, Remblandt Assemblage and Fuckexercise. And in the USA, 1981 saw John Bender’s Plaster: The Prototypes, a laconic and mysterious series of tone and vocal poems. Home taping was not limited to electronic music. R. Stevie Moore, one of the elder living ancestors of the lo-fi rock aesthetic, began releasing distributing home-made tapes via the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club sometime in the 1970s. And tapes of live punk shows from the era continue to trade hands. Soon, cassettes were coming from everywhere: mysterious PO boxes in the Midwest, to which you sent a blank tape and three dollars and received the tape back with something on it. The Tellus Audio Cassette Magazine was a Fluxus-inspired subscription audio-journal dedicated to music as well as poetry and drama and other forms of audio-art. Zines like Factsheet Five and Unsound devoted entire columns to the material they received from bands on home-made cassette, and demo tapes began leaking to radio stations prior to official record release dates. It was a grassroots movement that marched in association with the self-publication of zines, comics, chapbooks, and other media. The medium had begun to become the message. Insane Music for Insane People (which eventually reached 25 volumes) was a series compiling all home-made electronic music made by artists from across the globe. By including in the liner notes the contact address for each artist featured, Neffe helped pioneer a snail-mail network for those interested in more of what they heard. Artists from all over Europe and the USA, from Japan, New Zealand, and beyond contributed over the years. One could send a few dollars to Insane Music Contact, receive tapes in the mail, write to artists involved and receive more cassettes. Insane Music Contact (now known as Insane Music) has always been a vehicle for Mr. Neffe’s own electronic music projects as well, many of which are periodically active to this day. Though he now makes liberal use of the CD format, Neffe’s artistic approach remains undiluted by years of underexposure. He expects very little acknowledgment of or remuneration for his efforts, which, for him, are emotional articulation, continued experimentation, and purity. It seems nothing but nothing could possibly catapult such heavily uncommercial sounds into the public consciousness–not even this thirty-year retrospective box-set entitled The Insane Box released (ironically, on vinyl) by the venerable Frank Maier of Vinyl-on-Demand Records, an outfit devoted to preserving the precious gems of cassette culture before the evidence disintegrates. For this retrospective (4 LPs + a 7” 45), Mr. Neffe has reached into dusty attic boxes, wherein lay unreleased (or hardly available) material by five projects of which he has been a part: BeNe GeSSeRiT, Human Flesh, Pseudo Code, I Scream and Subject. Each has a unique cerebral orientation and emotional vibe made possible by the combined efforts of invited guests; each runs the high fever of a man very much committed to a personal vision of artistic purity without virtuosity, and each is distinctly French. BeNe GeSSeRiT was not the first of Mr. Neffe’s projects to be recorded and distributed, but is, to my understanding, the genesis of his approach to music as “texts” or “photographs”, or as he puts it, “potlatch music”. On these early tracks we also detect a burgeoning interest in the endless expressive properties of the human voice, both explicitly human and as heavily-treated sound sculpture, both French and English At times, voices shout like besotted Celine parlor workers at each other from tenement windows; at other times a high-pitched female voice wails up and down like Catherine Ribeiro alone in her bathroom. In these tracks, one can also detect the half-digested influence of electro-rock luminaries Silver Apples, the avant-lashings a la Yoko Ono, and occasionally the thunder-beat of early Laibach. Primitive Casio electronics, stage whispers, delay echoes, tape loops, and a certain absurdist humor redolent of Erik Satie, neither dampen the fabric with melodrama, nor detract from the integrity of the grist, nor from the topical seriousness of the text’s subjects. BeNe GeSSeRiT is difficult music, even in the moments that risk elegy, yet it is still more accessible than some of the other Francophone avant-dada outfits of the day, such as DDAA and Étant DonnĂ©s, or Nurse with Wound in the UK. Human Flesh is decidedly more structurally cohesive and song-oriented than BeNe GeSSeRiT, and its predecessors and influences are less clear. Still there is a clear interest in the human voice, its textures and timbers when removed of sign value by backwards-masking, and the new textures that emerge when disassembled and reassembled. Even rock-oriented at times, Human Flesh chases a more delirious climax, for the hounds of the carnival are snapping at their heels as they run. This is also a project of varied angles and pursuits, sliding as it does into poetic electro-pop (the supple and Chicago-accented voice of the late Lydia Tomkiw, of Algebra Suicide, appears on two tracks), and moments of Half Japanese-style primitivism. The side-long track “Langsam” is more reminiscent of Piper-era Pink Floyd and Brainticket, as well as other Krautrock, yet is still distinctly French. These early and rare tracks are, in contrast to the more ambitious Pseudo Code and the more intimate recordings by I Scream, more oblique for being a mix-down of materials sent to Neffe from artists around the globe. The track “Sons of God?” is also notable for what is perhaps the first recorded sample of the American fire-and-brimstone preacher Ferrell Griswold, whose voice has appeared in music by Front 242, Phallus Dei, Pragha Khan, et cetera. The cassette medium, for all its benefits to individual artistic expression and culture, is for the selfsame reasons impermanent. Magnetic tape has a thirty year lifespan if properly archived, which means both that preserving their contents in other formats is important, and that paying hundreds of dollars for the original artifacts is a questionable collectors’ pursuit (nevertheless, you can watch it happen daily). With the advent of the mp3 and the efforts of Vinyl-on-Demand and other labels, Insane Music’s CD-r reissue program included, some of this exquisite material has been rescued from oblivion.

426 steampunk brass synthesizer blows my mind on [technabob]
I always thought analog synthesizers were inherently retro. Just not quite this retro. This unbelievable steampunk modular synthesizer features tons of dials and intricate brass etching throughout. All of the buttons and knobs were hand lathed, and the synth includes a number of antique parts as well. audio, geek art + craft, retro, strange + wonderful, technology, analog, brass, handmade, music, sound, steampunk, synthesizer
