ATK is updated to 2.1.0 with a major refactoring of the Python wrappers and extensive testing of them.

Audio ToolKit: Mailing list for beta testers

Recently, I’ve struggled with releasing perfect plugins. There were some glitches in the last 2 plugins that could have been avoided easily with more testing.

So this is a call for people who are interested in my plugins. You can join the mailing list, share your ideas of the current plugins, and the future ones, about what can be made better, how it can be better…

Book review: OpenGL Data Visualization Cookbook

This review will actually be quite quick: I haven’t finished the book and I won’t finish it.

The book was published in August 2015 and is based on OpenGL < 3. The authors may sometimes say that you can use shaders to do better, but the fact is that if you want to execute the code they propose, you need to use the backward compatibility layer, if it's available. OpenGL was published almost a decade ago, I can't understand why in 2015 two guys decided that a new book on scientific visualization should use an API that was deprecated a long time ago. What a waste of time. [amazon_enhanced asin="1782169725" /][amazon_enhanced asin="B01FGMWRO8" /]

Analog modeling: Comparing preamps

In a previous post, I explained how I modeled the triode inverter circuit. I’ve decided to put it inside two different plugins, so I’d like to present in 4 pictures their differences.

Book review: Getting Started With JUCE

After the announce of JUCE 5 release, I played a little bit with it, and then decided to read the only book on JUCE. It’s outdated and tackles JUCE 2.1.2. But who knows, it may be a gem?
