@tindall a default tool for sharing files P2P that is just built into all the OSs as a right click option in file manager. That would be great to be able to send files without having to first make sure both devices have the same software installed or are on the same network.

thread!
I decided that I will be polishing up and releasing a track from my backlog every day this month (November 2021).

I don't really have a hard time coming up with new idea but I do have a problem with finishing things so this month is my challenge to help myself grow and be able to let go of imperfection and make quicker musical decisions.

I won't post a new post every single day, so instead i will reply to this thread.

@phil I once again will mention that browsers should start rendering markdown natively. it would make publishing so much simpler for the less technically inclined.

Hi, I'm Kevin.
I am an electronic engineering student interested in music production, programming, technology and diy.

Recently I have taken to cultivating my own website and trying to make my use of the internet more productive.
I want my time spent creating to beat my time spent consuming.

I tend towards being somewhat of a generalist and less of a specialist in my endevours and pride myself on learning and having a broad knowledge.

Thanks for having me!

Solace in Structure - Max Cooper

a very idm/live coding inspired track with excellent visuals paired.

Github Copilot 

I mostly agree with all the conversation around licensing and ethics with Copilot, but at the same time, I can see how useful it would be as a technology.

Wouldn't it be easy for GitHub to just disable training on any repository without a permissive licence? Or allow the user to select their licence, and it would only use code from compatible licences?

I think it's ultimately a solvable issue and maybe competing products with attempt to solve some of it if GitHub doesn't.

me, looking at any social/chat thing: what if this was more like IRC?

looking for a free (preferably open source) fm synth plugin similar to abletons operator. most of the free ones I have tried have really terrible interfaces or focus on recreating old fm chip sounds and not on clean synthesis. I have tried dexed, exakt light (best so far), adl/opn synth, as well as the (quite limiting) fm capabilities of surge and vital.

any suggestions?

I love being in places where you can always see snow-covered mountains in the background.

there is a wikipedia article on crypto. it's not perfect, but it does include bits like this.

it also doesn't uncritically repeat unsupported claims by blockchain pushers

@neauoire super neat - I didn't know that firmware even existed!

if you ever need MIDI **and** standard keyboard keys all on one device, we support it in KMK: github.com/KMKfw/kmk_firmware/

currently diving a bit deeper into Renoise.
Really loving the tracker work flow for making drum loops (and I usually hate programming drums)

I really wish the had open source firmware so that the tracker would be usable from a computer.

The devs do supply a binary for a teensy 4.1, so you can still run it without owning a M8 (which is generous for an audio hardware company), but it's such a unique tracker in its own right. I love the work flow, but with great fidelity and synthesis options.

thinking about the fact peanuts are legumes

While I haven't been online much the last month or 2 I have been cooking, pickling and fermenting a lot.
Pickled chillies, pickled cabbage, carrots a d bell peppers, pickled spicy cucumbers and some banging sauerkraut (with a little garlic and mustard seeds)

Also not pictured (because it was eaten) some amazing dijon mustard.
