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 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.

This is pretty neat. As per most of the comments, it would be fun to play with using this as an IR.

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.

i'll do them as I see them :)

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.

I was spending a little time trying to get EigenD, Expert Sleepers Silent Way & my modular working together. Thanks to a great video from  +Geert Bevin I've got the Voice Controller, pressure and yaw working well. 

Where I'm having some issues is getting EigenD to provide a clock for my Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot. I've added an AudioUnit agent, for Silent Way Sync, and wired in the metronome inputs, and wired the output out to inputs on the Audio agent. I've also set the tail time on the AU to off. When it's running all is good; changes to the metronome BPM are reflected in the clock output. However, when I stop and then restart the metronome the clock doesn't restart. If I leave the metronome running, and change something in SW Sync, such as the PPQN setting, or the divisor, the clock starts working again. 

Any thoughts anyone? I'm guessing I'll have to ask Os of Expert Sleepers as well.

+Mike Milton , a judicious portion of sarcasm only adds a sparkle to a conversation.

As to the topic discussed, my single wholehearted wish is that with all those innovative instruments will appear just one musical genius that will make capabilities of those instruments essential to his music. Someone like Paganini or Liszt. That would do something that cannot be done with just a keyboard and wheels.
