hey folks! been a little bit since i did an and a fair amount has changed since my previous one.

i'm an american expat (grew up in ohio) living in rotterdam, NL (previously was in utrecht, and berlin). my main gig is writing audio software – largely plugin fx and synths.

i also write and produce electronic music (lately drum&bass, but make ambient/downtempo too).

find me on the 'net:
software: lhiaudio.com, github.com/wrl
music: soundcloud.com/williamlight

yooo my song "lift you up" is out today on inspected.

all streaming platforms + bandcamp

give it a listen :>

x-post from birdsite: this evening at 18:00 CEST (16:00 UTC, noon EDT), i'm adding a CLAP backend to my in-house audio plugin framework and streaming it on twitch.

i'm encouraged by the reports i've heard from other devs about how straightforward it is to implement, so we'll see how it goes.

twitch stream will be at twitch.tv/wrlight

i think if i were a millennial, i would simply inherit a lot of money from a wealthy relative, then make an app or something and pass myself of as an 'entrepreneur' and get paid to write shitty thinkpieces about spending less on avocados and how young people actually love mitch mcconnell

@halcy hey HALCY how do you say "whomst'd've" in german

@pandora_parrot i thought you might be interested to know that i'm adding MPE support to cadmium this week :>

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

@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

Show thread

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
