Let's Play with AudioKit AR-909 & MixBox CS

The TR-909 is by far my favorite of all the classic drum machines. When AudioKit released AR-909 I knew I was going to be in for a treat. The sound design options in here can make it sound like a very unique instrument, and not just an emulation of the original! After tweaking it using just the internal tools, I ran the audio into IK's new MixBox CS to justify them giving me a free copy of their $40 mastering effects behemoth.

Video Description:

AudioKit brings us a lovingly-crafted 909-inspired drum machine app! It some unique sound design which I make great use of in this Let's Play. I then stuff it into IK Multimedia's new MixBox CS for extra compression and grit, before jamming with AR-909 and Troublemaker.

Let's Play with Agonizer

I've known Kai and Jakob for ages, so I was super happy to see the two of them join forces for Agonizer! While this is designed for music that is outside of my own tastes, the app provides a fun way to design deep, visceral, bass that will fit in many genres! I had a whole bunch of fun with this one!

Video Description:

Kai Aras (Numerical Audio) worked with Jakob Haq to create the Bass Synth of Jakob's dreams. Those dreams were fueled by a love of Dub... which is not something I share. I can dig it, but I can't produce it. I take Agonizer's sound sculpting tools in an entirely different direction in this Let's Play!

Halloween 2020: Pandemic Proof

This year my husband an I designed our Halloween stuff around being Pandemic Proof! Children are fun to scare, but they're also covered in germs and diseases. We needed a way to keep them far away from us!

Video Description:

I feel so bad for all of the kids that have been cooped up for the whole year. I have ADHD, and bored very easily as a child, so I can't imagine how unbearable this must be. We weren't about to let the pandemic stop us from terrifying our neighbor's kids! It's the reason for the season!

Let's Play with Skaka (and Velvet Machine)

If you search for Tim Webb on the site you get very few relevant results, despite my name appearing on every single post in the by-line. I've been doing some behind the scenes tweaking of the site's search function and it is kind of weird that none of my videos are results when you search for my name.

In-between coding and weird search algorithm experiments, I took some time to play with Skaka this week!

Video Description:

Klevgränd's new Shaked Percussion app Skaka is not quite a percussion app. I try to respect it in its native habitat, before taking it off into some weird directions! I do this with the help of Yuri Turov's new not quite a reverb app, Velvet Machine.

Apple iPhone Event 2020: 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G 5G

In a move that is sure to be greeted rationally, Apple is all-in on 5G. Today's Apple event included the phrase more frequently than the number of people who can actually use 5G in their area. In addition to its well-documented implications for the downfall of humanity, 5G includes some real limitations many people may be unaware of and Apple didn't mention.

Even if 5G is available in your area, there is a big difference between 5G and the ultrawide-band that Apple and Verizon were promoting today. Regular 5G low-band is only marginally faster than 4G/LTE. In fact, in a recent test AT&T and T-Mobile users had slower speeds on 5G than 4G.

Today's event hyped up the faster millimeter Wave (mmWave) 5G ultra-band signal. They failed to mention that it has an absurdly limited range; requiring line-of-sight to an enabled tower, without any obstructions. mmWave cannot even penetrate glass. This is why the only example they showed of it working was at a stadium! If you're outside in an entirely open field you'll still only be able to experience 5G mmWave if you're within 500 meters of a tower. There's also a 5G mid-band that offers wider coverage, and faster than 4G speeds, but is unlikely to penetrate inside of buildings.

This technology is intended to be a replacement to your home Internet, with a fixed antenna on your roof. Putting it in a phone is a nearly pointless exercise in technological brinksmanship! The amount of attention given to it in this event is an embarrassing example of how meaningless marketing is dictating the path at Apple. They did have some impressive technology to show off. Instead of focusing on their 5nm manufacturing, or insanely powerful Neural Engine, or the fact that this is a phone with 6 CPUs, they tried to cram in a 5G mention wherever they could. Even the fucking camera demo included 5G nonsense!

Well if Apple doesn't think any that's worth exploring, I guess I won't either. This 5G year's 5G iPhones 5G include 5G a mini 5G iPhone, with 5G the 5G same 5G specs 5G as 5G iPhone 5G 12 5G under 5G a 5G smaller 5G 5.4" 5G screen. The iPhone 12 mini and Pros can be preordered on November 6th, and they will ship out starting on the 13th. The iPhone 12 will be shipping on the 23rd of October, with preorders starting this Friday.

And one more thing... all that 5G tech costs an extra $100 over last year's models. They did a good job of obscuring that in this graphic. The mini iPhone is $699, the regular iPhone 12 starts at $800!
