  • glicol

    Graph-oriented live coding language and music/audio DSP library written in Rust

    Project mention: Little Languages for Music (1990) [pdf] | | 2023-05-21

    Thanks for sharing this paper. As a music language designer and developer (, I have a strong empathy with this paper as the research gap mentioned in the abstract is exactly one of my goals: to bridge the note representation and sound synthesis. And there are other axises to consider: real-time audio performance, coding ergonomics, collaborations, etc. There is no doubt that these languages have now become musical interfaces and part of instruments (laptops).

  • typebeat

    Keyboard-controlled music sequencer, sampler, and synth

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • HexoSynth

    A FLOSS (Open Source) hexagonal modular synthesizer plugin.

    HexoSynth is another working example, using nih-plug instead of the vst crate I use.

  • tune
