Get Busy, Y'all...

by Chris Randall

'Tis the season, apparently. While it may seem that little is emanating forth from the various Audio Damage facilities, that's about to change. We'll have at least two additions to the store in the near future, possibly three. One is a new utilitarian plug-in and two aren't. Neither are they Euro modules. Or anything that plugs in at all.

After these three releases occur, we're gonna lay in to the Dubstation 64-bit update, and make an attempt at some of the problems plaguing the 64-bit Logic side of things (fucking Logic.)

So anyhow, you can expect a lot of AD news in the next few days as we roll these things out. We'll also be updating the store, so we'll be offline for a while (most likely tomorrow), so don't freak out if you see that.

And finally, as you can see from the photo above, I finally got a proper photo scanner to replace my dead all-in-one. I picked up one of these bad boys. Two thumbs way up. If you have film to scan, you need this, plain and simple.

@Chris_Randall: 15 seconds? FUCK.

I am now officially at the point where every major bug I face is Juce related. Unfortunately, I'm pretty solidly embedded in there, due to the XML handling of Juce.

So +1 and -1 for JUCE, eh? Care to elaborate on why it's so hot/not?

I used to use Tracktion heavily (which is made by JUCE's creator), have been getting into C++ heavily, and know just enough to be somewhat awed by how extensive JUCE seems to be. Given my experience with Tracktion, I'd be inclined to trust Jules's decisions on usability/flexibility.

Course it don't mean nothin' if it's full of bugs...

@krylenko: I only know enough to know it's not for us. We've fooled with it now and again, but like most middleware, you're better off just building the things from scratch most of the time. The main argument for using JUCE is that you essentially get the RTAS and AU for free, but now we have Symbiosis for the AU, and we could give two tiny little squirts of shit about RTAS, so buh-bye, JUCE.

Chris - what are the chances of you & a handful of the other useful heavyweight guerrilla audio developers (yes that's how some of us see you).. all y'all gang up on the Apple Campus, Room 302, Logic Development Central... and let them know on no uncertain terms that they need to work out all the useless bullshit idiosyncrasies of Logic once and for all?
Tops on my shit list would be to make MIDI control work properly for AudioUnits.
My (purchased) copy of Axon is dusty, since I can't go beyond the built-in sounds (no offense), and I can't afford another host (DAW) in terms of my time, learning curve, and di?ero.
Also on my list? I can unplug and plug in any controller I want, anytime. Stop stressing out when I do this, @$#%ing Logic!

@CR Ah, I misread and that should've been -2 for JUCE. Thanks.

@robbster: the chances are zero. I care about Logic only marginally more than I care about ProTools. That is to say that while we _do_ build for it, I wish it would die the death that 20-plus-year-old pile of code so richly deserves, whereas PT is dead to me already.

mad ep
Not to go off JUCE topic... but anymore hints about the new plug?

May.27.2011 @ 12:04 PM
so... ot... but what happened to 'expect a lot of new ad news in the next few days' from 2 weeks ago?
