my fav masto client TheDesk stopped working on my arch system and I needed to add `--in-process-gpu` -- without it, I was getting an error message that literally said "GPU process isn't usable, goodbye." Anyway I'm back, not sure if you knew I was gone or not

reaper is next on my list but cubase kinda has me in its grasp at the moment. I love Bitwig, don't get me wrong. This is just a voyage into the other DAWs to get a better understanding of Bitwig in context. Right now it feels way more polished than zrythm or even waveform, but cubase feels incredibly more mature. I tried Logic and Live before switching to Bitwig, and I still prefer it over both. None of this really matters, of course lol

been touring the DAW scene again, just to have better understanding for what people are talking about when they say "but my DAW something something workflow" ... Latest updates:

- zrythm ... still entirely unusable for me on mac, barely usable on linux

- Tracktion Waveform - seems like it could be cool but it's not super intuitive

- Cubase - ... damn I think I like cubase a lot. It's ... actually very nice. I was not expecting to like it at all, but I definitely do

V2 of merely.xyz/waves is now live and it has FM! This means new possibilities for sounds and shapes. It also brings improved UI, and for supporters: scw export & more segments. Enjoy!

Managed to get Falcon working on Linux via wine and yabridge, which is pretty cool. It's not perfect but it does work. It gets a little "unresponsive" once in a while and drag and drop from the Bitwig browser doesn't work, but it does run and that's more than I expected.

This week's #DisquietJunto project:

Gabber and ambient music seem like polar opposites. Gabber is typified by a constant distorted kick drum pummelling you at upwards of 200bpm. Ambient, on the other hand, can be deeply immersive or barely noticeable. This project asks the question: is “gabber ambient” possible?

Step 1: Consider what makes gabber gabber and what makes ambient ambient. Where is there crossover?

Step 2: Make a track that could be construed as “gabba ambient.”

Step 3: You’re probably going to want to delete it. Try not to. Save and upload.

(Thanks to Sevenism for having proposed this project.)

Details: disquiet.com/0556.

Deadline: This project’s deadline is the end of the day Monday, August 28, 2022, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, August 25, 2022.

was sad they only had 1 thing available on vinyl but the other albums said "Coming Soon" and not "Sold Out" so I think that's a good sign!

Recently became a fan of Thank You Scientist and went a little extra on their merch site I guess lol

hey trans people in the uk on the charing cross wait-list

you have less than 30 hours before you're kicked out if you don't fill out this form: transsafety.network/posts/char it should have been emailed to you.

there is never enough reposting this. boost, fav, spread to other platforms, this is extremely time sensitive.

Do people still read stuff? Like blogs and things like that? Or is all content basically TikTok length videos these days?

good news: it's possible to dedupe a funkwhale instance.

bad news: I had no patience for doing things in a repeatable way so I just hacked some lines of code together and they worked but I will likely have to re-do the same process if I need to de-dupe again. Next time I'll actually try to write something into the app itself instead of just hacking some PHP/PDO stuff together to brute force my fix :)

currently listening to Flexout rollers tunes that sound similar enough to the chairs in that video where the guys are pushing the chairs really slow and then dancing that I can't really keep a straight face lol

not only is it making duplicate albums, it's apparently making duplicate artists as well. I guess the only logical thing to do is spend a bunch of time writing code to fix this

Why Funkwhale? Whyyyyyyyy?! I promise the tags are not different 😱

zsh nerdery 

NextCloud was complaining about file names with leading spaces (Which I didn't realize existed) so I used a zsh for loop:

for fil in ./**/\ *.wav
do mv $fil ${fil:s/\/\ //}
done

It removes the first occurrence of a space that immediately follows a forward slash, so "/Users/me/sample folder/ wat lol weird.wav" becomes "/Users/me/sample folder/wat lol weird.wav"
