09:43 timotimo RabidGravy: do you follow 8bitkeys on youtube?
09:43 RabidGravy nope, should I?
09:43 timotimo it's a fun channel
09:44 timotimo he reviews/shows-off a whole bunch of keyboards that are about as old as I am
09:44 timotimo sometimes he solders a thing or two, like giving the device a line-out. oftentimes he cleans up disgusting electronics and cases
09:45 RabidGravy I think the oldest thing I have  is a Roland TR-606 that I bought new in 1982
09:45 timotimo and every now and then there's a nice little multi-track recording
09:45 timotimo yeah, that'd be a couple years older than me :)
09:46 RabidGravy YOOF!
09:46 timotimo "you old, old fart"?
09:47 RabidGravy :)
09:47 timotimo i mean ... i already regret having wasted the entirety of my youth, but ... i'm not actually very old
09:50 timotimo do you recall when we built a super simple sine wave generator and tried to make it perform well enough?
09:50 timotimo do you still have those files?
09:50 timotimo because moarvm recently got a bit faster at invoking functions
09:52 RabidGravy strangely I was thinking about that myself
09:52 timotimo let's kick the noise gang into high gear and accelerate from 1 message per month to two messages per month!
09:55 RabidGravy aye
09:58 timotimo i haven't practiced on my keys for at least two months ;(
09:59 RabidGravy I haven't bought a musical instrument for nearly six months :)
10:00 timotimo jeez dude what's wrong? :(
10:00 timotimo can we help?
10:00 RabidGravy and then I was tempted by a French techno producer acquaintance of mine who introduced me to the Squarp Pyramid
10:01 RabidGravy hideously expensive but I can throw out all the other sequencers and computers ;-)
10:02 timotimo i just misread that as "tempted to buy a french techno producer acquaintance"
10:05 timotimo i don't know what's special about the pyramid that'd let you throw out everything else
10:07 RabidGravy largely large number of very long sequence tracks of disimilar length and time signature
10:07 timotimo mhm
10:08 RabidGravy currently the latter parts I deal with multiple sequencers
10:10 timotimo i see
10:18 RabidGravy Also an interesting thing that the Pyramid does is what is embodied in https://github.com/jonathanstowe/EuclideanRhythm
10:19 RabidGravy so you can stick in slots/fills for a track and it populates the events
10:19 timotimo yeah, i read a short article about it and remembered that
10:24 timotimo and 2 parameters are enough to make everything you might want?
10:25 timotimo i suppose since you can up the parameters up as far as you want ...
10:26 RabidGravy well in terms of the rhythm of the events, you would need to define the *what*, it just takes care of the *when* :)
10:26 timotimo of course
13:56 mr-foobar joined #perl6-noise-gang
15:24 RabidGravy timotimo, BTW the example is in the POD of https://github.com/Perl6-Noise-Gang/Audio-PortAudio/blob/master/examples/play-sine
15:36 timotimo oh fucking god
15:36 timotimo long press, copy...
15:36 timotimo it offers me the content of the other buffer
15:37 timotimo i.e. the sommand i used to attach to screen
15:43 timotimo don't really have time right now to try it out
16:02 RabidGravy I'm juggling a bunch of stuff may do later
