I've recorded this track about a year ago. I was planning to make more tracks like this and release them as EP, but I'm a lazy ass, and didn't record anything since then.

I have no idea what genre this is. I guess it's influenced by jungle, techno and dubstep, but it's not like it fits into this genres.

Spent the whole weekend with my partner making a game for a game jam. It was our first jam, and it was a fun experience. We really like how the game turned out

I decided to upload a track of our band to soundcloud. Damn I'm missing making music as a part of the band. Can't wait until virus shit is over and we'll be able to get together and play again

far-right shitheads trashed a bar in Kyiv accusing it of drug dealing 🤦‍♂️

Once again I'm at a point in time when I want to buy some music gear. How do I convince myself that I don't need another monosynth?

I'm giving pixelfed another try, and it still feels weird.

I don't understand how federation works there. I can find accounts from different instances and even separate posts from mastodon, but new posts don't appear in my feed if I follow them, is this normal?

Also was trying to find some interesting accounts using public feed, but it seems to be really slow, and not a lot of stuff caught my eye.

btw, my account is @sitka, I plan to post music and gear related pics and videos there

Progress of reviving laptop from 2007:
✅ Upgrade RAM to 4 gigs
✅ Upgrade to 64bit CPU (which costed $3 delivered)
✅ Install SSD as main disk
✅ Get rid of CD-ROM and install another HDD instead
✅ Install Linux (installed PopOS now, but might switch to something more lightweight)
🔲 Replace battery

Didn't test it a lot yet, but at first glance it seems to work nicely. It struggles to play youtube at 1080 (720 plays ok), but it doesn't matter as the screen is not HD, lol

and this happens at the point when I thought that I get audio on linux and even kinda like it...

switched to pipewire. still a little bit confused as to how to control it, but it seems to be stable for now

It's a first time I hear about "calm technology" but it sounds like as a UI designer I should investigate this topic more and try to adopt at least some of the principles

Was looking for a way to download Resident Advisors Sote podcast episode (since they don't have this option on their website). Found a list of direct links to some of their podcasts

Ok, tried to sync it to the Volca, seems like it's not really viable idea. PD does output the clock, put it's sounds really random. I guess I'll just wait for Bespoke to implement proper MIDI clock

I made a Bespoke prefab that outputs pulse at 24ppqn, PureData patch that converts this pulse to MIDI Clock, and... can't figure out how to make Reaper, or Tracktion, or anything to follow MIDI clock... What can follow MIDI clock on linux? LMMS? Ardour?
