Adventures in high-resolution rendering

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I have been working on making high-quality prints of some of these animations for gifts and posterity. I started by using Processing’s built-in ‘saveFrame()’ method (see all the previous screenshots for examples). The quality is not bad, especially if saved as PNG files instead of JPEG. I soon discovered that it is limited to the [...]

The style of our piece was very open-ended, emphasis was placed on technical criteria such as recording quality, and complexity of the final result. This class has focused mostly on ‘Electronic Music’ which is defined as music that uses non-traditional [...]

The buttons are from old Nintendo game consoles and were really cheap at the electronics thrift store. I statically mapped each sensor to a [...]

More Processing Visualizations, Sensors

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Today I started constructing the physical sensors that will control these visualizations. I so far have some sliding potentiometers to control continuous parameters (speeds, quantities, etc) and push buttons to control boolean flags that enable or disable various modes and extra features for the animations. I will be adding rotary knobs as well as a [...]

Finished Juce Pitcher VST Plugin

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

I added an enable/disable button for the pitch-shifting to save on CPU resources if that part is not needed. I also added a ‘Bass Mix’ slider to mix¬† un-processed bass frequencies back into the vocal-removed signal. Depending on the [...]
