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 MEMBRANEâs waveforms can be scanned through automatically by the wavescannerâs 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 Machineâs 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.

Cut simple SMT Stencil from common aluminum flashing on your CNC
Hereâs a quick photodoc of how I made a reusable SMT stencil from some aluminum siding I had laying around. Itâs very simple to assemble and works great. Dirt cheap too.
I had picked up a roll of aluminum flashing a few years ago to flash some chimneys I rebuilt/repointed and was curious to see how it would hold up as an SMT stencil.
To buy an SMT stencil frame is near $1000 so I didnât have much to lose if it didnât work out.
I cut the frame out of some birch plywood since I had some handy. Really any sturdy frame would do the trick. You could easily glue one together out of some 1x or trim board.
I put a thicker sheet of aluminum down underneath the flashing to give the CNC endmill something sturdy to cut against and clamped it down stretched and tight. My thought there was that If I cut straight on the MDF it might push on the flashing and bend it before it cut through.
A 1mm endmill did the trick. Each pass was .05mm deep.
I pulled the Flashing tight and stapled it to the frame. No rocket science here. I taped up the inside edges so no solderpaste could squeeze between the frame and the stencil.
I had some old screen print hinge boards so I just attached this frame the same way I would a screen print stencil.
The only fiddly part was aligning the first PCB. You have to push around a little and lift the stencil and fiddle with it a little bit. Once I get all the pads lined up correctly I hold it in place and trace around it with a thin tip sharpie marker.
Then you place the PCB in the outline. If you have the height adjusted correctly the stencil is sturdy enough to hold the PCB in place while you print the Solderpaste on it. just hold the stencil frame down and it pushes down on the PCB.
I used a flexible putty knife as a squeegee. It worked fine.
Cleanup was a breeze. Just scrape it off, unscrew the stencil frame from the hingeboard and stick it in the corner till you are ready to do another run.

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

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.

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.

Commandes IP relatives aux rĂ©seaux sous Windows
Il est parfois trĂšs utile de connaĂźtre les commandes IP, pour analyser voire configurer ses rĂ©seaux TCP/IP.
Voici la liste de ces commandes Ă utiliser dans une fenĂȘtre DOS :
PING : Teste la connexion rĂ©seau avec une adresse IP distante
ping -t [IP ou host]
ping -l 1024 [IP ou host]
* Lâoption -t permet de faire des pings en continu jusquâĂ Ctrl-C.
o Si vous avez prĂ©cisĂ© l'option -t vous pouvez Ă tout moment avoir des statistiques sans interrompre les requĂȘtes ping en appuyant sur Ctrl+Attn (aussi nommĂ© Ctrl+Pause)
Cette commande est aussi utile pour gĂ©nĂ©rer une charge rĂ©seau en spĂ©cifiant la taille du paquet avec lâoption -l et la taille du paquet en octets.
TRACERT : Affiche toutes les adresses IP intermĂ©diaires par lesquelles passe un paquet entre la machine locale et lâadresse IP spĂ©cifiĂ©e.
tracert [@IP ou nom du host]
tracert -d [@IP ou nom du host]
Cette commande est utile si la commande ping ne donne pas de rĂ©ponse, afin d'Ă©tablir Ă quel niveau la connexion est dĂ©faillante.
IPCONFIG : Affiche ou rafraĂźchit la configuration rĂ©seau TCP/IP
ipconfig /all [/release [carte]] [/renew [carte]] /flushdns /displaydns /registerdns [-a] [-a] [-a]
Cette commande, exĂ©cutĂ©e sans option, affiche lâadresse IP en cours, le masque rĂ©seau ainsi que la passerelle par dĂ©faut au niveau des interfaces rĂ©seau connues sur la machine locale.
* /all: Affiche toute la configuration rĂ©seau, y compris les serveurs DNS, WINS, bail DHCP, etc ...
* /renew [carte]: Renouvelle la configuration DHCP de toutes les cartes (si aucune carte n'est spĂ©cifiĂ©e) ou d'une carte spĂ©cifique avec le paramĂštre carte. Le nom de carte est celui qui apparaĂźt avec ipconfig sans paramĂštre.
* /release [carte]: Envoie un message DHCPRELEASE au serveur DHCP pour libĂ©rer la configuration DHCP actuelle et annuler la configuration d'adresse IP de toutes les cartes (si aucune carte n'est spĂ©cifiĂ©e) ou d'une carte spĂ©cifique avec paramĂštre carte. Ce paramĂštre dĂ©sactive TCP/IP pour les cartes configurĂ©es de maniĂšre Ă obtenir automatiquement une adresse IP.
* /flushdns: Vide et rĂ©initialise le cache de rĂ©solution du client DNS. Cette option est utile pour exclure les entrĂ©es de caches nĂ©gatives ainsi que toutes les autres entrĂ©es ajoutĂ©es de faĂ§on dynamique.
* /displaydns: Affiche le cache de rĂ©solution du client DNS, qui inclut les entrĂ©es prĂ©chargĂ©es Ă partir du fichier des hĂŽtes locaux ainsi que tous les enregistrements de ressources rĂ©cemment obtenus pour les requĂȘtes de noms rĂ©solues par l'ordinateur. Le service Client DNS utilise ces informations pour rĂ©soudre rapidement les noms frĂ©quemment sollicitĂ©s, avant d'interroger ses serveurs DNS configurĂ©s.
* /registerdns: Actualise tous les baux DHCP et rĂ©inscrit les noms DNS.
NETSTAT : Affiche lâĂ©tat de la pile TCP/IP sur la machine locale
NETSTAT [-a] [-e] [-n] [-s] [-p proto] [-r] [intervalle]
* -a Affiche toutes les connexions et ports d'Ă©coute (Les connexions cĂŽtĂ© serveur sont normalement inhibĂ©es).
* -e Affiche les statistiques Ethernet. Peut ĂȘtre combinĂ©e avec l'option -s.
* -n Affiche les adresses et les numĂ©ros de port sous forme numĂ©rique.
* -p proto Affiche les connexions pour le protocole spĂ©cifiĂ© par proto; proto peut ĂȘtre TCP ou UDP. UtilisĂ© avec l'option -s pour afficher des statistiques par protocole, proto peut ĂȘtre TCP, UDP, ou IP.
* -r Affiche le contenu de la table de routage.
* -s Affiche les statistiques par protocole. Par dĂ©faut, des statistiques sur TCP, UDP et IP sont visualisĂ©es; l'option -p peut ĂȘtre utilisĂ©e pour spĂ©cifier un sous-ensemble du dĂ©faut.
* intervalle: RĂ©affiche les statistiques sĂ©lectionnĂ©es, avec une pause de "intervalle" secondes entre chaque affichage. Appuyez sur Ctrl+C pour arrĂȘter l'affichage des statistiques.
* -abnov Affiche les processus qui utilisent la connexion internet (Adresse IP local, port, adress IP distante et le PID du processus qui utilise la connexion ainsi que son nom).
ROUTE : Affiche ou modifie la table de routage
ROUTE [-f] [commande [destination] [MASK masque rĂ©seau] [passerelle]
* -f Efface les tables de routage de toutes les entrĂ©es de passerelles. UtilisĂ© conjointement Ă une des commandes, les tables sont effacĂ©es avant l'exĂ©cution de la commande.
* -p Rend rĂ©manente lâentrĂ©e dans la table aprĂšs le reboot de la machine
* commande SpĂ©cifie une des quatre commandes :
o DELETE: Efface un itinĂ©raire.
o PRINT: Affiche un itinĂ©raire.
o ADD: Ajoute un itinĂ©raire.
o CHANGE: Modifie un itinĂ©raire existant.
* destination: SpĂ©cifie l'hĂŽte.
* MASK: Si le mot clĂ© MASK est prĂ©sent, le paramĂštre suivant est interprĂ©tĂ© comme le paramĂštre masque rĂ©seau.
* masque rĂ©seau: Fourni, il spĂ©cifie la valeur de masque de sous-rĂ©seau Ă associer Ă cette entrĂ©e d'itinĂ©raire. Non spĂ©cifiĂ©, il prend la valeur par dĂ©faut 255.255.255.255.

* METRIC: SpĂ©cifie le coĂ»t mĂ©trique pour la destination
ARP : RĂ©solution des adresses IP en adresses MAC. Affiche et modifie les tables de traduction des adresses IP en adresses physiques utilisĂ©es par le protocole de rĂ©solution d'adresses ARP.
ARP -s adr_inet adr_eth [adr_if]
ARP -d adr_inet [adr_if]
ARP -a [adr_inet] [-N adr_if]
* -a Affiche les entrĂ©es ARP actives en interrogeant le protocole de donnĂ©es actif. Si adr_inet est spĂ©cifiĂ©, seules les adresses IP et physiques de l'ordinateur spĂ©cifiĂ© sont affichĂ©es. Si plus d'une interface rĂ©seau utilise ARP, les entrĂ©es de chaque table ARP sont affichĂ©es.
* -g Identique Ă -a.
* adr_inet SpĂ©cifie une adresse internet.
* -N adr_if Affiche les entrĂ©es ARP pour l'interface rĂ©seau spĂ©cifiĂ©e par adr_if.
* -d Efface l'hĂŽte spĂ©cifiĂ© par adr_inet.
* -s Ajoute l'hĂŽte et associe l'adresse Internet adr_inet avec l'adresse physique adr_eth. L'adresse physique est donnĂ©e sous forme de 6 octets hexadĂ©cimaux sĂ©parĂ©s par des tirets. L'entrĂ©e est permanente.
* adr_eth SpĂ©cifie une adresse physique.
* adr_if PrĂ©cisĂ©e, elle spĂ©cifie l'adresse Internet de l'interface dont la table de traduction des adresses devrait ĂȘtre modifiĂ©e. Non prĂ©cisĂ©e, la premiĂšre interface applicable sera utilisĂ©e.
NBTSTAT : Mise Ă jour du cache du fichier Lmhosts. Affiche les statistiques du protocole et les connexions TCP/IP actuelles utilisant NBT (NetBIOS sur TCP/IP).
NBTSTAT [-a Nom Distant] [-A adresse IP] [-c] [-n] [-r] [-R] [-s] [S] [intervalle]
* -a (Ă©tat carte) Liste la table de noms de la machine distante (nom connu).
* -A (Ă©tat carte) Liste la table de noms de la machine distante (adresse IP).
* -c (cache) Liste le cache de noms distants y compris les adresses IP.
* -n (noms) Liste les noms NetBIOS locaux.
* -r (rĂ©solus) Liste les noms rĂ©solus par diffusion et via WINS.
* -R (Recharge) Purge et recharge la table du cache de noms distantes.
* -S (Sessions) Liste la table de sessions avec les adresses destination IP.
* -s (sessions) Liste la table de sessions convertissant les adresses de destination IP en noms d'hĂŽtes via le fichier hĂŽtes.
Un Exemple :
nbtstat -A @IP
Cette commande renvoie le nom NetBIOS, nom du systĂšme, les utilisateurs connectĂ©s ...de la machine distante.
La commande telnet permet d'accĂ©der en mode Terminal (Ecran passif) Ă un host distant. Elle permet Ă©galement de vĂ©rifier si un service quelconque TCP tourne sur un serveur distant en spĂ©cifiant aprĂšs lâadresse IP le numĂ©ro de port TCP. Câest ainsi que lâon peut tester si le service SMTP, par exemple, tourne sur un serveur Microsoft Exchange en utilisant lâadresse IP du connecteur SMTP et puis 25 comme numĂ©ro de port. Les ports les plus courants sont :
* ftp (21),
* telnet (23),
* smtp (25),
* www (80),
* kerberos (88),
* pop3 (110),
* nntp (119)
* et nbt (137-139).
HOSTNAME : Affiche le nom de la machine
FTP: Client de tĂ©lĂ©chargement de fichiers
* -s cette option permet de lancer des FTP en mode batch : spĂ©cifie un fichier textuel contenant les commandes FTP.
NsLookUp: envoie des requĂȘtes DNS sur un serveur DNS au choix
nslookup [domaine] [serveur dns]
La commande NsLookUp permet d'envoyer des requĂȘtes DNS Ă un serveur. Par dĂ©faut, si vous ne mettez pas le serveur DNS, la commande utilisera celui qui est configurĂ© pour votre interface rĂ©seau (celui que vous utilisez pour naviguer sur internet, par exemple) mais vous pouvez forcer l'utilisation d'un autre serveur.
Par exemple, pour demander au serveur DNS 10.0.0.3 l'adresse IP correspondante Ă l'adresse www.commentcamarche.net:
nslookup www.commentcamarche.net 10.0.0.3
* Si vous ne prĂ©cisez aucun paramĂštre pour nslookup, un shell s'ouvrira en attente de requĂȘtes de votre part.
Netsh (network shell : shell rĂ©seau) est un utilitaire en ligne de commande inclus dans la gamme des systĂšmes d'exploitation Windows NT (NT, 2000, XP, 2003 Serveur, Vista) Ă partir de Windows 2000. Il permet la configuration du rĂ©seau, localement ou Ă distance.
Une utilisation classique de netsh est la rĂ©initialisation de la pile TCP/IP Ă ses paramĂštres d'origines (Sous Windows 98, cette opĂ©ration nĂ©cessitait la rĂ©installation de l'adaptateur TCP/IP). Dans ce mode, vous devez fournir Ă la commande un fichier journal (log). Celui-ci sera rempli avec les valeurs affectĂ©es par netsh.
Netsh permet aussi (entre autres) de changer l'adresse IP de la machine.
Exemples d'utilisations :
- RĂ©initialisation de la pile TCP/IP :
netsh interface ip reset C:\resetlog.txt
- Adresse IP statique :
netsh interface ip set address local static 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.0
- Adresse IP dynamique :
netsh interface ip set address name="Connexion au rĂ©seau local" source=dhcp
- Netsh et IPv6 :
Netsh peut Ă©galement ĂȘtre utilisĂ© pour lire des informations provenant de la pile IPv6, cette commande est plus facile Ă utiliser que la commande IPv6.exe et fournit quasiment le mĂȘme niveau d'information.
Pour afficher votre adresse IPv6 en utilisant netsh :
netsh interface ipv6 show address

CrĂ©er votre propre commande
Pour ceux qui aiment tout faire avec le clavier, il est possible de crĂ©er vos propres commandes exĂ©cutables dans Menu dĂ©marrer > ExĂ©cuter.
Nous allons prendre l'exemple de la commande netnavig qui exĂ©cutera Mozilla FireFox.
* Ouvrez la base de registre.
* Allez vers la clĂ© HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE puis les sous-clĂ©s successives \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
* Allez dans le menu Ădition > Nouveau > ClĂ© et donnez-lui le nom netnavig.exe
* Faites un double-clic sur la valeur que vous venez de crĂ©er, puis allez de nouveau dans le menu Ădition > Nouveau > Valeur ChaĂźne et donnez-lui le nom Path
* Faites encore un double-clic sur la valeur crĂ©Ă©e et entrez le chemin complet de l'application que vous voudrez lancer, dans notre exemple c'est C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox, puis validez. Il est possible de copier ce chemin Ă partir de la barre d'adresse de l'explorateur directement.
* Un autre double-clic sur la valeur (par dĂ©faut) et entrez l'exĂ©cutable de l'application avec son chemin complet : C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox, dans notre exemple. Ensuite, validez et fermez l'Ă©diteur de registre.
Ainsi vous pouvez exĂ©cuter Mozilla Firefox juste en faisant: Menu dĂ©marrer > ExĂ©cuter > taper netnavig et valider.
Vous pouvez faire la mĂȘme chose pour toutes les applications auxquelles vous voulez un accĂšs rapide avec le clavier.

1116 Sitting is Killing You
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, there is one thing nearly all modern Americans have in common: we sit all the time. Though our great shift towards computer-based work has done great things for productivity, it has, unfortunately, done terrible things for our health. From increased risk of heart disease and obesity in the long term, to sharply hampered cholesterol maintenance in the short term, the negative health effects of sitting are starting to weigh heavily against the benefits. Even the medical field â the greatest advocates of reducing sitting time â is plagued by this new health issue. Though doctors and nurses get plenty of walking time, it usually falls to the secretaries, billers, and coders to do all the sitting. And, as we can see, something has to change.

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!
1043 Monotribe, MIDI and me
When I heard about the monotribe, I had my doubts. Mostly that thereâs only one pattern, which is 8 steps long. Well, there are 8 extra steps for the drums, as well as a âflux modeâ 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 doesnât 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 Korgâs 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.

John turns on his computer to work on his seminar paper. Instead of digging through his hierarchal file system, he simply opens up GNOME Activity Journal and clicks on the top item in the "Recently Used Files" list. When he realizes that he can't remember the name of the website that he was reading for research yesterday, he simply looks at the list of files related to his paper and clicks on the website.
More at the Zeitgeist Vision page.
Grouping and Filtering
Our goal is to group/filter the data by:
Type of data
Location of use (GPS)
Drag and Drop (not for links)
Filtering by Dataproviders/Time/Tags
Add an actions toolbar to quickly share items by email or instant messaging. (See nautilus-share)
Experiment with Tracker, Soylent, and Empathy.
Long term goals
Better metadata extraction (see some of the sprints above)
Integration with other computers and mobile devices.
Mockups And Current Usage
Some work was done by the City of Largo in the past which replicated some of the features of the Activity Journal. Possibly some of this work can result in ideas for improving the User Interface.

Ah, passwords. Love âem or hate âem, theyâre 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 donât do this because of all sorts of human factors such as convenience, memory or simple unawareness of the risks. Still, when itâs a case of individuals electing not to create secure passwords, they really only have themselves to blame.
But what happens when the website wonât 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 donât allow you to send it between your computer and their server securely?
Even worse, what happens when our most âsecureâ 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.

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.
868 How Facebook Ships Code Â« FrameThink â Frameworks for Thinking People
Iâm fascinated by the way Facebook operates. Itâs a very unique environment, not easily replicated (nor would their system work for all companies, even if they tried). These are notes gathered from talking with many friends at Facebook about how the company develops and releases software.
Itâs been over six months since I assembled these observations and Iâm sure Facebook has continuously evolved its software development practices in the meantime. So these notes are probably a little bit out-of-date. It also seems like Facebookâs developer-driven culture is coming under greater public scrutiny. So Iâm feeling more comfortable now about releasing these notesâŠ HUGE thanks to the many folks who helped put together this view inside of Facebook! Thanks are also due to folks like epriest and fryfrog who have written up corrections and edits.
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.
This is a simple analog brass lead patch.
A fun patch with lots of motion made using my "Audio-rate Filter FM" programming tip below.
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.
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.
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.
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. ^_^
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!
These I created just for fun and desktop "beautification" ;)

812 ED102 - Octave-Volts-Hertz
The ED102 borrows heavily from the Korg MS-02âą although it was developed independently of Korg Inc.
Korg and MS-02 are the trademarks of Korg Inc.
Among presently available music synthesizers, there are two different types of control system used for controlling devices such as the VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) and VCF (voltage controlled filter). These two systems been: Hertz/Volt (Hz/V) and Octave/Volt (Oct/V).
The graph to the left shows the relationship between the VCO oscillator frequency (pitch) and the control voltage (keyboard output voltage). The straight line on the graph is from a synthesizer in which there is a one octave change for every one volt change in the control voltage (Oct/V). In contrast, the curved line on the graph is the control voltage from a synthesizer in which the VCO frequency is proportional to voltage (Hz/V system).
To allow these systems to work together you will need a module like this ED102. The built-in, fully adjustable log amp and anti-log amp ensure complete system flexibility and compatibility between any presently voltage controlled synthesiser.
The Hz/V system
In the Hz/V system, the VCO oscillator frequency is proportional to the control voltage so that, for example, if the frequency of a VCO increases by 100Hz for every volt applied, then applying 1V, 2V and 3V to this VCO would generate 100Hz, 200Hz and 300Hz respectively.
The Oct/V system
In the Oct/V system the VCO oscillator frequency changes one octave for every one volt change in the control voltage so that, for example, 1V, 2V and 3V to a VCO would generate 200Hz, 400Hz and 800Hz respectively.
Features and Functions
This changes a Hz/V type keyboard CV (control voltage) output into an OCT/V type of CV. Use the Log Amp to change the control signal from, say, a Korg or Yamaha synthesiser into a signal you can use with another type of synthesizer.
This changes an OCT/V type of keyboard CV output into a Hz/V type of CV. Use this Antilog Amp when you want to control, say, a Korg synthesiser by means of a unit that uses the OCT/V system.

767 The 5 types of programmers Â« Steven Benner's Blog
In my code journeys and programming adventures Iâve encountered many strange foes, and even stranger allies. Iâve 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 youâll probably find your projects either take too long to complete, are not stable enough or are too perfect for humans to look upon.
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 wonât break again. Of course he doesnât 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.
You want to do what to my code?
This guy doesnât 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.
Iâm a programmer, damnit. I donât write code.
His world has one simple truth; writing code is bad. If you have to write something then youâre 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.
What do you want? It works doesnât it?
The guy who couldnât care less about quality, thatâs someone elses job. He accomplishes the tasks that heâs 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 canât scoff at it (no matter how much you want to).
Well, thatâs 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 âif I had more time I could have done this the right wayâ.
Personally, Iâd 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 Iâll add it to a new updated list.
766 [WS001] Circuit-Bending â Initiation Â« Gasol
Le Circuit-Bending ou Circuitage dĂ©signe lâactivitĂ© 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 dâorigine. 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 lorsquâil court-circuita accidentellement lâun de ses instruments. Mais des mĂ©thodes similaires ont Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©es auparavant par dâautres musiciens et ingĂ©nieurs.
Cette activitĂ© peut ĂȘtre assimilĂ©e Ă une certaine forme dâart, de part le dĂ©tournement, lâappropriation et la personnalisation de ces appareils ainsi que leurs usages lors de performances audiovisuelles. Câest lâart 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 lâappareil.
Ne jamais tenter ces manipulations sur des appareils alimentĂ©s par une tension supĂ©rieure Ă 12V, risque dâĂ©lectrocution.
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 lâapprĂ©hension de cette activitĂ©. Notamment la reconnaissance des divers composants Ă©lectroniques qui seront utilisĂ©s ou court-circuitĂ©s.
La rĂ©sistance est surement le composant le plus rĂ©pandu. Sa principale caractĂ©ristique est dâopposer 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.
Un potentiomĂštre nâest autre quâune rĂ©sistance ajustable. Il possĂšde 3 pattes ainsi quâun systĂšme mĂ©canique permettant la variation de la rĂ©sistance.
Une photo-rĂ©sistance est Ă©galement une rĂ©sistance dont la valeur varie en fonction de lâintensitĂ© lumineuse. On peut Ă©galement le nommer rĂ©sistance photo-dĂ©pendante (light-dependent resistor (LDR)) ou photoconducteur.
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 lâĂ©nergie.
La diode est principalement utilisĂ©e comme convertisseur de courant alternatif vers du courant continu ou comme multiplicateur ou rĂ©gulateur de tension. Câest 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 lorsquâelle est parcourue par un courant. De la mĂȘme maniĂšre que la diode, ce composant est polarisĂ©.
Le transistor est le composant actif utilisĂ© principalement comme interrupteur commandĂ© ou pour lâamplification, mais aussi pour stabiliser une tension ou moduler un signal.
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 Ćuvre.
Il existe une trĂšs grande variĂ©tĂ© de ces composants divisĂ©s en deux grandes catĂ©gories : analogique et numĂ©rique.
Un interrupteur est un dispositif permettant dâinterrompre ou dâautoriser le passage dâun flux.
Le bouton poussoir est une touche tactile qui permet de faire une liaison Ă©lectrique momentanĂ©e le temps que lâon appuie dessus ou, sur certains modĂšles inversĂ©s, dâouvrir temporairement le contact Ă©lectrique.
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 âŠ)
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 sâacquiĂšrent 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 lâendommager et ne pas faire baver lâĂ©tain au risque de crĂ©er un court-circuit non souhaitĂ©.
Il faudra Ă©galement sâarmer de patience, câest la qualitĂ© premiĂšre et la plus haute compĂ©tence dâun 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 lâexpĂ©rience ce temps sera considĂ©rablement rĂ©duit.
Beaucoup de pratique
Pour dĂ©buter, lâidĂ©al est de sâattaquer 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 âŠ 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 dâĂ©largir les domaines de recherches Ă des appareils plus Ă©laborĂ©s mais gare Ă lâirrĂ©versible court-circuit meurtrier qui mettra dĂ©finitivement la machine hors-service.
Il faut tout dâabord 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 Â« pitch Â» 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 câest une bonne technique dâapproche).
Afin de ne pas avoir Ă mĂ©moriser tous les endroits sensibles, lâidĂ©al est de prendre une photo du circuit, de la transferer sur un ordinateur et ainsi noter pas Ă pas Ă lâaide dâun logiciel de dessin type MSPaint ou Photoshop tous les Bends dĂ©couverts. Certains les notent directement sur le circuit Ă lâaide dâun stylo ou dâun feutre, mais lâencre 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 dâenregistrer les sons de la machine ou de lâutiliser 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, lâajout dâun 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 lâaide dâun testeur. Le plus simple est dâutiliser des pinces croco que lâon raccordera Ă deux petits tournevis dâhorloger.
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 lâon note au fur et Ă mesure sur notre photo. On poursuit ensuite en dĂ©plaĂ§ant le premier tournevis sur un autre point et en recommenĂ§ant notre parcours avec le second. On rĂ©pĂšte cette procĂ©dure jusquâĂ 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 lâamplification, le volume, lâoverdrive/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 quâon activera plusieurs Bends simultanĂ©ment. On peut alors dĂ©cider de continuer la quĂȘte des modifications compatibles ou bien Ă©viter dâen 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 lâinterrupteur 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 lâeffet 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 lâavoir 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 lâergonomie 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, lâutilisation dâun cĂąble nappe tel que lâon 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).
Il est maintenant lâheure de tester notre nouveau jouet !

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.
âą Mirrored glass or plexiglass. Due to the type of paint applied to the reflective coating, inexpensive, craft-store mirror works wonderfully.
âą Latex or other gloves for hand protection.
âą Paint stripper. Most types work fine. For a less toxic product, Citristrip works well.
âą Plastic putty spreader or putty knife.
âą 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.
âą 1â chip brush (or similar brush).
âą Silver paint of choice.
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.

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 projectâs 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 â and most of us have experienced them â when the clientâs 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 websiteâs 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.
Visualizing.org is a community of creative people working to make sense of complex issues through data and designâŠ and itâs a shared space and free resource to help you achieve this goal.
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, weâve seen government agencies, NGOs, and companies open up their data for the public to see and use. And weâve 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 dataâŠ with a community that can help us understand this dataâŠ with the general public.
What is Visualizing.org? What can I do on the site?
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

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:
660 What's Next: fully ergonomic laptops? | VentureBeat
When the first laptops were created around 1979 â laptops like the Grid Compass â ergonomics was not exactly a core concern. The screens were only 2-4 inches, RAM was a few hundred kilobytes, and batteries were huge. The Osbourne 1 weighed 24 pounds, perhaps making it the first portable computer and dumbbell. Hooray for convergence!
Modern clamshell and tablet designs have solved many of these issues: screen sizes exceed 17â, RAM can be several gigabytes, and weight can be less than three pounds, deservedly earning names like the Air. What hasnât been solved is ergonomics, and thatâs a costly problem.
The U.S. Department of Labor reported 650,000 cases of work-related muscular disorders, costing businesses an estimated $20 billion in medical claims and lost productivity. An ergonomically ideal computer setup aligns the top of the screen with our eye level, lets our arms and wrists straighten, and allows our shoulders to relax.
Because laptop screens are attached to their keyboards, they require a damaging trade-off: place the laptop at eye level and hunch our shoulders, or place the keyboard at arm level and bend our neck. Most laptop keyboards are also rectangles, requiring wrist twisting. The result is chronic neck, shoulder, and wrist pain, and with laptop use increasing, this problem will only get worse.

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 âfeelâ. 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 wonât 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 oneâs 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 âdesignedâ 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.
476 Top 15+ Best Practices for Writing Super Readable Code | Nettuts+
Code readability is a universal subject in the world of computer programming. Itâs one of the first things we learn as developers. Readable and maintainable code is something to be proud of in a finished product. We can share it with others, contribute to other projects, and reuse code from applications we wrote months or even years ago.
This article will detail the fifteen most important best practices when writing readable code.
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 itâs 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 personâs 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 Â» Attack of the Cosmic Rays! - System administration and software blog
Itâs 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 âother peopleâ. I also assumed that even if I saw random cosmic-ray bitflips, my computer would probably just crash, and Iâd 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 didnât 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 canât 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.

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 mojoâone needed only leave home to buy more tapes. Says Neffe, âI 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 âŠ if the buyer didnât like the music, he or she could wipe it out and record something else on it.â
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 wankingâthat 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 Bugsâ A Safe Substitute and Colin Potterâs The Ghost Office. In Japan, 1980 saw the release of Merzbowâs first two cassettes, Remblandt Assemblage and Fuckexercise. And in the USA, 1981 saw John Benderâs 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. Neffeâs 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, Neffeâs 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 consciousnessânot 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 7â 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. Neffeâs projects to be recorded and distributed, but is, to my understanding, the genesis of his approach to music as âtextsâ or âphotographsâ, or as he puts it, âpotlatch musicâ. 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 textâs 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 Ătant 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 âLangsamâ 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 âSons of God?â 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 collectorsâ 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 Musicâs CD-r reissue program included, some of this exquisite material has been rescued from oblivion.

Using a Weak Password
Avoid simple names or words you can find in a dictionary, even with numbers tacked on the end. Instead, mix upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. A password should have at least eight characters. One good technique is to insert numbers or symbols in the middle of a word, such as this variant on the word "houses": hO27usEs!

Permitting Youngsters to Use Facebook Unsupervised
Facebook limits its members to ages 13 and over, but children younger than that do use it. If you have a young child or teenager on Facebook, the best way to provide oversight is to become one of their online friends. Use your e-mail address as the contact for their account so that you receive their notifications and monitor their activities. "What they think is nothing can actually be pretty serious," says Charles Pavelites, a supervisory special agent at the Internet Crime Complaint Center. For example, a child who posts the comment "Mom will be home soon, I need to do the dishes" every day at the same time is revealing too much about the parents' regular comings and goings.
323 F.lux: software to make your life better
Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?
Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?
During the day, computer screens look goodâthey're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.
F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

235 MATRIXSYNTH: Alesis Andromeda A6 Aurora Mod
This was a custom mod. I originally put a post up in August of 05 here. Anyone know the website where more info on this mod is hosted? I accidentally lost the link when mucking around with Blogger's settings a while back.
This image via Photobucket
Update: I found the original site but it is down. Some info and additional shots pulled from the Internet Archive Way Back Machine. You can find some thumbnails there, but most give you a 404 if you click on them for the larger shot. I pulled the large pics below before they are gone forever.
"Alesis made Synthesis History when they released their Alesis Andromeda A6, an analog polysynth bred with new technology and classic analog sound! Sixteen awesome voices with two types of filters, a vast modulation system, and enough bells and whistles to make the Andromeda A6 THE most highly featured analog polysynth in existence. If it only had a sloped panel...
* Take one Andromeda, lightly used (but out of warranty - very important!)
* Add one black on blue BETA Panel - because the pre-production beta panels were lacking the Pre- and Post-Filter Mix VIEW buttons, either the buttoncaps must be pulled off of the switches on the PCBs OR two holes need to be carefully drilled through the panel to accomodate. I drilled the holes after measuring about fifteen times each.
* Tilt that panel at approx. the same slope as the Korg MS-20. Requires the extending of a couple of ribbon cables inside, and some pop-rivetted braces. Not too hard.
* Custom wood endcheeks of nice Oak, plus a wood accent over the keyboard. I chose to go with thick, high quality wood to make Aurora more of a beast.
* Replace all green LEDs with red high-intensity ones. This also required changing some resistor values to increase the brightness.
* Replace the LCD with a Hantronix Blue-on-White display. Also, some resistor changes are needed.
* Have a very agreeable Alesis burn a custom Boot EPROM with the custom-designed bootup screen below.
* Build a custom top panel, complete with several additional controls (two joysticks, several switches and knobs) as well as a full 16-channel mixer with level and pan per channel, one for each of the 16 individual outs on the Andromeda.
* Add lots of careful, hard work and time, and PRESTO - you have the Aurora A6!
The Name: I went with Aurora for a couple of reasons.
1. Alliteration - AurorA - AndromedA - get it?
2. There is some legend/lore as to how the Alesis Andromeda got its name. Could be related to the Greek mythos. Could be related to the Andromeda galaxy. Could be darts thrown at dictionary pages :-) In any case, Aurora fits with the mythology bent because in Roman mythology, Aurora was the goddess of the dawn (Andromeda was rescued and married by Perseus in Greek mythos). Aurora also fits the 'celestial' thing as well, as the Aurora Borealis. Either way, it kept with what might have perhaps been Alesis' reasons for naming the Andromeda.
3. I just liked it.
4. The A6 is kept because this fits with Alesis' naming convention (QS8 = 81-key QuadraSynth, A6 = 61-key Analog). There is some rumor that A6 was a play on ASICs, the custom chips within Andromeda, but I'm assured this is just rumor :-) "
