Euclidean beatbox made with Processing

June 16th, 2014 § Leave a Comment

This is an online Euclidean beatbox application I did a while back when learning the basics of processing language.

The idea was to experiment with Euclidean algorithm for rhythmic patterns generation.

So this app provides three basic beatbox sounds, a kick, a snare and hi-hat, each triggered by its own Euclidean sequence. The tempo is fixed, you can adjust volume of each sound, set the length of the pattern, and the number of hits in each pattern.

OSCream discontinued

April 20th, 2014 § Leave a Comment

BlackBerry recently announced that the Adobe AIR platform won’t be supported anymore on BB10 in the next update of the OS, BB10.3.

Therefore, it makes no sense for me to keep maintaining OSCream as it is now, maintaining an Adobe AIR app that could only run on Android, especially given the restrictions of the AIR platform (no support for UDP, that’s why OSCream server was required).

So OSCream has already been removed from the Android Play store. It will stay for a bit longer on the BlackBerry AppWorld, but it won’t be upgraded anymore, and obviously it won’t be running on the new BB10.3 OS update.

I’m planning to rewrite it from scratch, under a new name to avoid confusion, the first platform to see this new version will be iOS, then maybe Android.

Dynamic Range manipulation in music production

August 18th, 2013 § Leave a Comment

Hi, I am Julien Nicault from Annecy, France. I am following the Coursera class “Introduction to music production”. In this post, I’ll try to explain the concepts behind dynamic range manipulations in a musical post-production context, as part of the fourth week assessment.

What is the dynamic range

The dynamic range of a musical piece or a recording, is the difference between its loudest parts and quietest parts, controlling the dynamics helps to control the amount of energy in each part of a recording, allowing to guide the auditor through the piece, giving the focus on the relevant parts.
