# introduction
I make machines to make music.
They're made of silicon and ceramic flakes on the inside, wood and aluminium on the outside.

I like electronics, 3d sound, modular synths, VR, cycling, transcendental meditation, infodiving, anti-gravity racing, strong beer, the white noise of the sea, the grain of wood, and weird plants.

I try and create things with puredata, Eagle, C, html/css/javascript, glsl, and I'm in love with Powershell.

Longing for Singularity.

jeeeeesusfknxst Hyper Demon.
Never felt so pulled towards a videogame, I think an hour hasn't had the chance to pass from when I saw the trailer to when I bought it.

Blood is gushing from my eyes with joy.

HiFiScan is an open-source application that lets you either manually or automatically create an #EQ curve to compensate for your speakers or room frequency response in order to achieve a flat, neutral audio reproduction. There are well known commercial products that do this, so here's a #libre alternative:
It can export curves that can be imported into system-wide EQ software for Linux, Mac and Windows.

My definition of live coding:
Using an explainable representation
to explore and share unexplainable experiences,
by asking 'what if?'

It's finally time! the 0xC.pad is available *now* from me (assembled) & four other vendors (as a DIY kit)!✨


It's a 12-key macropad with hexagonal keycaps that I designed as well. It runs on an integrated ATMega32U2 microcontroller and QMK out of the box.

This is the very first time I'm selling something I built with my own hands, so I'm super excited (and a bit nervous)! I'd really appreciate a retoot for this one ❤️

woohoo, we have a release 🥳

master_me is a mastering plugin for live streaming, podcasts and internet radio stations.

free & open source :rainbow_heart:

I have been developing this for the last 6 months and with the help of many contributors, it's finally ready. Can't believe how much I learned...

Thanks to @falktx @magnetophon @x42 @jkbd the faust community

Live coding: A user's manual out in November! Straight to paperback as well as free (cc-by-sa) PDF / ebook

my org vojage: [paper todolists + paper calendar/planner]>>[trello + google calendar]>>[my kanban CLI app + paper bullet journal + google calendar]>>[single file, wikilinks where needed]. Prety satisfied with the workflow, only thing I'm not sure how to preserve a trace of done things. Feels good to delete completed tasks and keep a tiny file...suggestions?

The big package arrived today. This one basically is the end result of the last 2.5 years of work:

A bunch of 0xC.pad kits and an even greater bunch of hex keycaps! These particular 50 kits I'll assemble myself and sell, whereas the other ~350 units will be sold as DIY kits by various vendors that fkcaps organized, both in the EU and US.

Let me introduce you to one of my favourite .

Thue is a matrioshka esoteric computer based on string rewriting rules.

A Thue program consists of two parts: a list of substitution rules, which is terminated with a line having both sides of the operator empty, followed by a string representing the initial program state, which may extend over multiple lines.

thinking about a lexical way to think about/express reverse polish notation:
- `2 3 +` >> "2, with 3 MORE"
- `7 4 -` >> "7, with 4 LESS"
- `3 6 *` >> "3, 6 TIMES"
- `8 2 /` >> "8, in 2 PARTS"

Not a great discovery, but helps me think in that frame.

Here we go - new case attached & second round of keycap samples installed!

These are looking great, it seems likely that there won't be (a need to do) another iteration 🤩

Amazon is promoting its new voice synthesis feature as a comfort item, but comfort can be abused. If the technology can be used to read a child a story in their grandmother's voice, then it could also be used to read ads in a voice that is highly reminiscent of your grandmother, so that the comfort food they want you to buy comes recommended in a voice you find comforting. Your interpersonal relationship become associative tools for directing you back to an Amazon sales page.
