Arduino workshop

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Mon, 09/15/2014 - 16:54

Søren Andreasen will hold an Arduino workshop at BEK Monday 29. September – Friday 3. October. The workshop fee is 500,- NOK. Join by mailing us at bekatbekdotno

Beginners and those who need to brush up on the very basics, get a brief introduction to hardware KITs and the Arduino software Monday 29. and Tuesday 30. September between 16.00 – 21.00

Wednesday 1. – Friday 3. we follow up those who have a little experience with Arduino before and those who have their own projects they need help to get on with. Søren will also bring a proposal for a project for those who need some startspray. For this he use some solenoids, servo motors and a bunch of nobs and lights for you to work on. Wednesday and Thursday we also start at 16.00 and keep it going until we’re eighter finished or excausted, or both. Friday we sum up from 16.00 – 18.00.

This workshop costs 500,- NOK. For this you get a starting KIT and some things to work on (worth the workshop fee). If you need to use servos and solenoids, you pay the actual costs if you want to take them with you after the cource. You need to bring your own laptop. And it would be nice if you bring some power supplys (5 – 36 V) or some toy instruments or other electronic toys.

Workshop holder is Søren Andreasen,
He did a similar workshop at BEK last year.

ATK for Reaper Public Beta (version 1.0.b3)

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 09/12/2014 - 18:58

Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper is now available as a public beta. While there is a well-established workflow for stereo production in DAWs, options have been more limited when working with Ambisonics. The Ambisonic Toolkit (ATK) brings together a number of tools and transforms for working with first order Ambisonic surround sound, and includes intriguing possibilities for spatial soundfield imaging.

Download ATK for Reaper – Version 1.0 beta 3

The ATK toolset in intended to be both ergonomic and comprehensive, framed so that the user is enabled to ‘think Ambisonic’. By this, the ATK addresses the holistic problem of creatively controlling a complete soundfield, facilitating spatial composition beyond simple placement of sounds in a sound-scene. The artist is empowered to address the impression and imaging of a soundfield — taking advantage of the native soundfield-kernel paradigm the Ambisonic technique presents.

ATK has previously only been available for public release via the SuperCollider real-time processing environment. Cockos Reaper is a reasonably priced and flexible DAW, popular among many composers and sonic artists working with spatial sound. Reaper’s versatile design conveniently supports the ATK’s Ambisonic workflow model.

Using the JSFX text-based scripting language, the ATK has now been ported to plugins for Reaper. Several of the plugins, in particular the transforms, offers intuitive graphical user interfaces that helps visualise the effect of the various transforms. The plugins work with all operation system and processor versions that Reaper supports. On the Windows platform the plugins can also be used with other VST-hosts by means of the ReaJS ReaPlug plugin.

The ATK toolset has been been gathered, authored and developed by Joseph Anderson over a number of years, and is now a collaborative open source project. The port of ATK to Reaper has been done by Trond Lossius of BEK, Bergen Center for Electronic Arts.

A paper on ATK for Reaper by Trond Lossius and Joseph Anderson will be presented at the upcoming joint ICMC | SMC conference in Athens. If you are attending the conference, please drop by during the poster session next Thursday!

Frank Wefers: Fast convolution for auralization and Virtual Reality

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 09/12/2014 - 02:51
Date:  Mon, 10/06/2014 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom, Rm 217 Event Type:  Guest Lecture This talk summarizes the state-of-the-art in fast convolution and discusses computationally efficient implementations of FIR filters. These techniques are optimized for low latencies, time-varying filters and often multiple inputs and outputs. The talk discusses algorithms suited for these particular purposes, ranging from short to very long filters --- from binaural synthesis with head-related impulse responses to artificial reverberation with room impulse responses. Different hardware platforms are addressed: mobile devices, general-purpose processors (CPUs) and graphic processors (GPUs).
