Hey that's not too shabby. I just realized the current pippi test suite renders about 15 minutes of audio, running through most of its functionality & capabilities in about 13 seconds. As meaningless as any other benchmark but still nice to realize.

I just spent some time cleaning up the tests a tiny bit and it's also nice to be like -- oh yeah! That tukey osc sounds cool, I should use that more! I forgot I added a bar physical model from soundpipe! Etc...

Here's the output all as one file...

Finally got my new chisel tip, this does indeed seem to help a lot but I still suck at soldering! I think I need a flatter pair of clippers, too mine were harder to get flush with the board than I expected... anyway I’m excited to finally have my home workshop in place so I can keep practicing and make my way towards some bigger projects I really want to tackle... (like an i2c driven microcontroller and dc motor / induction mic organ...)

I love this cyberdeck-esque nerdbait image in today's Tape Op newsletter. Is this a real machine? I think I see kanji on the keyboard?

Thanks to @paul and @neauoire I have a small handful of these little mp3 players on the way from Elecrow for possible use as a vehicle for a collaborative digital release...

I've been copying the .Xresources styling and prompt format from the old puredyne configs forever, but today I found pywal which sets a terminal color scheme and background from a photo. This is pretty neat & the colors it picks seem really readable so far.

OH, ha. Just cleared cached media from this mastodon server for the first time. So that's where you went, 147GB of disk space...
