I was a MA/MST student at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Accoustics.

This is my weblog.

A few days ago I ran Let It Ride through an effects chain in ChucK,
controlling parameters in realtime.  I just posted the results on my
music page (look at the bottom, near the other Let It Ride remixes).

I also finally got bandlimited simple waveforms generated the way I
wanted for my MilkyTracker piece.  It took longer than I though it
would simply because MilkyTracker can only pitchshift samples so far
and I was losing some notes at the extreme top of the playable range.
It was strange and I still don't really understand what was going on,
but by limiting my output sampling rate to four times the native
sample rate of 8363 (a throwback to the Amiga's sound processing chip)
everything seemed to work out fine.  I'm going to steal my own FM
kickdrum from FM Forever! and then try to make a nice retro chiptune.

Later I want to try different methods for bandlimiting waveforms but
I feel like it's well past time to make some music.
