Pinned toot

Have been a musician for most of my life and a computer tinkerer for all of it. I'm currently rediscovering my long-neglected love of all kinds of technology alongside my desire to live with less.

Great to be here, and super excited to see all the inspiration here in town 🙏

@neauoire Okay, definitely hearing the siren song of math again after trying out this alternative multiplication method. S/O to @ColinTheMathmo for his rad write up on it, too! It helped a lot in grokking the how behind this.

Impeccable timing, the battery on my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) is in need of service and this probably means that I should get some kind of backup comp and would love to get into some flavor of Linux.

What has been Merveilles' experiences with particularly audio editing with Linux? I'm hoping to grab something that can run a basic DAW with around 5-6 tracks max and aroun5-7 plugins on each track without completely slowing down.

@milofultz these are made with a sheet of vibram rubber and paracord. I am a barefoot guy and this is about as close as I can get and still be allowed places
