Whelp, got laid off from another tech job (blockchain downsizing, crypto bubble burst). Poor me. Motivated for more music making and aleph programming.
I went through the cvQuantize tutorial but I could not reproduce it based only on the text. After some hacking, I was able to get something similar and have a scene that takes CV input and produces a diatonic scale based on scale values in a LIST8. Anyhoo…I’d like to start posting issues like these on the github repository as I work through this stuff, just so we have a record of everything. As we know, the dev tooling is the biggest barrier to cool new stuff on this platform.
I can’t say I enjoy the programming experience on Aleph but somehow I’ve built a performance setup using it as a core component (like the final output mixer) which I know is crazy. After this CV tutorial, a whole new dimension hit me for this thing. Just being able to quantize CV values based on scales is like…super cool. Programming CV + DSP is quite rad. Doing the 266fluctuating tutorial tomorrow.
What would be some more interesting studies? I’m leaning towards one on looping delay with the lines module since I’ve done a lot of work with that one. Maybe also something like “storing values while switching presets?” I ran into that problem when I made a bunch of presets with different operator graph connections but the encoders would jump from the previous values when I switched.
@zebra in haven’t forgot about this thread! I’ll be at your show this Wednesday. I promise I won’t harp about Aleph stuff too long. I’ve begun my performance setup and the Aleph is a key component. Working through the weird integer division stuff and the delay lines read speed decimal division.
I got the build toolchain back on my laptop and was able to compile the dev branch. The mix app loaded and now I don’t need the SD card! I’d like to begin porting some of the code from the lines module and bees params/operators to an embedded firmware. It helps that many of my coworkers are compiler experts. Looking forward to more hacking.
