It's not every day you get to see someone play a grand piano with a pair of toilet brushes in your national Concert Hall. Saw Nils Frahm do this last night at the end of a superb gig. The geek in me also had to take a pic of his stage setup (2x Juno 60, Moog Taurus, Rhodes, close mic'd grand piano, upright, and an assortment of effects including the Roland tape echos he's well known for).

Technical Help  - 
 
Trying to build EigenD from github today on a different machine to the one I've developed on before. I'm getting the following error and was wondering if anyone else has seen this??

In file included from lib_juce/modules/juce_graphics/juce_graphics.cpp:137:
lib_juce/modules/juce_graphics/native/juce_mac_CoreGraphicsContext.mm:510:13: error: comparison of function 'CGContextDrawTiledImage' not equal to a null pointer is always true [-Werror,-Wtautological-pointer-compare]
        if (CGContextDrawTiledImage != 0 && transform.isOnlyTranslation())
            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    ~

cool thxs,
Ive made the same changes, and pushed them.
seems like,generally,  we should be moving to std math <cmath> and away from math.h.
i'll do them as I see them :)

Workbench/Setup Building  - 
 
Just a quick note to say that I've added belcanto and a config to +Mark Harris's Creator repository that builds a simple hang drum setup (ie. just the pair of hang drums) as developed by +Geert Bevin.  It should be easy to add this into your own setups!

This is interesting. I'm wondering what changes, or hopefully improvements, Roli's aquisistion of Juce will bring?
We're really excited to announce that ROLI has acquired JUCE, an acclaimed C++ framework which is used by leading audio companies such as Korg, Pioneer, Arturia, Akai Professional, and M-Audio. The move will enable us to both expand the Seaboard's compatibility with existing 3rd party software, ...

Just noticed an interesting 'development' to the acquisition saga: http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/launch-juce-4-and-summit-reported,  some interesting tidbits:
- Juce v4 target fall this year
- Juce v4 mainly new modules, good backwards compatibility  (no features announced) 
- Roli is now copyright owner
- GPL version will not be affected (*1)
- version 4 will  it seems (no details yet) have a different licensing model... and its a little unclear if v4 will be a paid upgrade for commercial license holders (*2).
- version 3 would still be available, but without maintenance.

Seems like some critical moves to commercialising JUCE by Roli, which is completely understandable - but the devil will be in the new licensing details... will it be less attractive? hopefully not, as not in anyone (including Roli's) interest.

*1 as GPL will still be available, seems like EigenD should not be adversly affected, as its source is freely available.

*2 some 'odd' stuff like TC has been in V3 license to not include v4, some are asking if this affects existing V3 owners - and JB is not sure what the deal will be.

for whats its worth (not alot), Id be tempted to use the arranger playing some interesting percussion (or play into recorder), and then hook up convolver... 
just seems to be an audio in/out agent, so although it doesnt seem to be designed to go with mixer, it should work as an fx send in the mixer agent.

Shiny new mk3 breathpipe for the alpha arrived today, along with a spare instrument cable.

Ive not had any time to practise until this evening, and not much tonight either! From a quick test using the clarinet in eigenD it does seem more responsive and require less pressure.

No worries. Yes, I was the guy with the large camera across and down a bit. I was going to drop over and say hello, but never quite got around to it. I spent most of the evening chatting with Simon Boyle (@beinmysolo).
I shall make sure to say hello the next time our paths cross!

Autosampler is available again.
Tired of lugging? A hidden feature in the new MainStage turns hardware instruments into software, automatically. Redmatica is reborn. Here's how to find it.

10 questions for Chris Randall. Some interesting insights into software and hardware development in the music business.

This has been my evening reading (ebook version) for the last few days, post hurricane Gonzalo. Might have to pick up a copy of Max to dive in deeper.
