hey how do people feel about comb filters

my thoughts: i like what comb filters do to sounds but i don't necessarily like the metallic "sound" of a comb filter

(i may or may not be building some comb-filter based effects)

i found this screenshot on my phone of a bug summary from a few years back and i can't stop chortling

me, pouring my cat shit coffee: i like to refer to myself as " sapiosexual", you see

@socksy added a KEYS file so now it makes more sense lol

it seems like "pretend that everything else isn't there" wouldn't be a super cool feature but the psychological impact of just... ignoring the larger context and focusing on a tiny part of the work is hard to overstate

also i put a kanban mode in there too, because why not

also it has almost no UI and vi keybindings

i get frustrated because when i'm sketching/planning out a project, i draw up these sprawling, fanciful plans covering as much ground in as deep detail as i can

but when it comes time to actually do the work, it's overwhelming and hard to know where to start

so what i've built is a hierarchical task manager that lets me arbitrarily zoom in to any part of the tree and block out the whole rest of the context

so, after spending large portions of my life going through every single task/todo management app i could find and managing maybe 3-6 months per tool, last week i finally got fed up with it all and started writing my own.

svelte/js on the frontend, rust on the backend. i will probably AGPL it.

why the fuck isnt the computer doing what i tell it to do *it turns out the computer is doing exactly what i tell it to do* well i'll be danged

fediverse, I'm looking to enlist a UI designer for some (paid!) audio software design work. the ideal person for this role:

1) is a UI designer
2) knows their way around music software
3) can write GLSL shaders or has an interest in learning
4) is taking contract work

if this is you, or you know somebody who fits this description, please get in touch :D

@jess hey so i moved into a place that has a ton of balcony/terrace space

@velartrill unfortunately i would lose a large percentage of my userbase if i did that so for the time being i've made my bed and now i have to toss and turn in it

@velartrill ps if i didn't have to ship software for mac then i would drop the platform in a heartbeat
