Despite not posting for awhile, I’ve been pretty busy with music-related projects.
I’ve also started looking at AudioKit for audio programming for Mac/iOS. The audio engine for AudioKit is an open source library called SoundPipe, and reading about it I discovered a cool little audio language called Sporth. I don’t have the hang of writing Sporth patches quite yet but it looks like a nice language for experimenting with sound design.
Then there’s Bitwig Studio 2.0. I participated in their beta test program and upgraded to v2 last week. I haven’t spent too much time with it yet, but the new interface is growing on me. They’ve streamlined the UI quite a bit and the new modulation system is a lot of fun. I noticed that the Arturia BeatstepPro script I wrote awhile ago doesn’t work in 2.0 so I’ve got to spend some time debugging that at some point.
And last but certainly not least I’ve been working with Peter Kirn and James Grahame on a project that I’m excited to write more about soon!
