Kent Clelland is going to lead a JUCE::Group. Depending on levels of interest he could give a workshop for JUCE beginners (who already know C++), or a workshop for JUCE afficianados who want to learn a specific skillset, or a workshop for total C++ noobs. Please register by inserting your name below and let him know in what you are interested in so that he can prepare accordingly.

What is JUCE?

JUCE is an open source C++ framework for developing peformant, professional realtime Audio and Visual software. JUCE can be developed on OSX, Windows, or Linux Operating Systems and products built with JUCE can be deployed on OSX, iOS, Android, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry PI as standalone application or plugin (VST, AudioUnit, AAX, etc...). watch JUCE framework coder Timur Doumler present JUCE at CppCon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boPEO2auJj4

Over the course of the week Kent will be researching the following 3 topics with the intent to build proof of concept imeplementations:

  1. JUCE development for live visual / video performance
  2. JUCE deployment for for the Raspberry PI platform.
  3. realtime audio analysis re-synthesis (FFT/iFFT) using JUCE

Sign up here to join the JUCE::Group :

Name Dev Platform JUCE level Interest
Kent Clelland OSX / XCode Expert Video Output, RPi, realtime FFT
Dominik Chapman Windows / Visual Studio Advanced N-gon Wave Oscillator, Polyphony
Andrej iOS none, i neever programs, only debugs FFT, PLL, Spectral Resynthesis

Benjolin case

Willi Sauter is offering a workshop for finishing our benjolins with a case and power supply. Please tell if there is interest for this so we can order the parts. The benjolin orchestra is calling... DSC00238.JPG


Andrej is into preamps, especially Echoplex Preamps. Ray Butts, anyone? Dont’t talk to me about this if you don’t know. Well, please do if you can spare hours and hours... That amounts to building a buffer stage and learning lots about audio filter theory, phase and gainstaging. Andrej never has any concrete things to teach (look at the sun) but he’s a master debugger that can claim it was always just a cable or a switch, mechanical things 99.99% of the time. So bring me your dead blinkenlights, silent speakers, ground loops, weird noises. If it can be reduced to a single thing, i’ll find it. If it can’t, i’ll prove it to you with instructionsto follow up. But as long as there is a critical path to follow, we’ll suss it out. I don’t really make things work, but i can show why they don’t. Ask me one thing at a time. You can leave your worries as a comment, right here:


Gemeinsame autarke Klanginstallation

Vorschlag von Uwe: kollektive Klanginstallation auf dem Aussichtsturm Schwanden zu klären: ist das gestattet? Genehmigung ? evt. nur flashmob style an 1 Abend ? Stromversorgung: Autobatterie(n)? Fokus auf solar- & windbetriebene sowie akustische Klangerzeugung ?


dusjagr wird ein paar Tage mit Kazi und Tibor dabeisein, beides schon versierte robotik-freaks, synthesizer geeks, famous DJ's in Yogya und sowieso gerne am basteln. Wir nehmen mal das Lego Boost robotik kit mit, ein paar Otto's und sind froh wenn andere Leute auch mal mit den buben was machen.
