Finally it was my turn to get a vaccine too.
Quite straight forward and painless.
I was given the janssen one, so no 2nd round next month needed.

Please get yours too, and eventually we can all get together again safely. πŸ€—

An argument against client-side decorations (CSD) as a picture.

Can you guess which applications use CSD and which ones use SSD?

The inconsistency on these commercial applications is a constant annoyance...

My poor little server, so much ffmpeg importing @unfa 's videos πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

Experimenting with input + output metering

Picking a color palette is going to be hard... πŸ€”

After many hours, a knob is made.
πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰

Don't ask me how many hours this took πŸ˜‚
(there was a whole lot of refactoring and setting up before it could be shown properly on screen...)

Today is a "magical" day.
From a nice and fresh 10C in the morning, to 31C in the afternoon.
A whole whopping 21C in temperature difference...

And to think this is only going to get worse 😱 😒

Slowly getting DPF Cairo backend up to speed.
Same codebase, totally different targets, same behaviour.
Screenshot shows the Demo/test tool to render a few things, including subwidgets.
(opengl has the nanovg test, which is not possible on cairo for obvious reasons)

Only 2 things left for Cairo backend:
1. load png images from memory (instead of large raw data like opengl side does)
2. get the built-in DPF image widgets compatible with cairo.

Those 2 already done in a PR, but need adjustment

One of the perks of modular open-source design.
We can just take stuff other people did, that is also open-source, and put it together with ours.
Jean Pierre Cimalando was doing some tests and we got DPF rendering "Dear ImGui" [1] stuff for audio plugin usage.
It does really work! Of course with some caveats, but looks quite promising.


Rezound with a small update for Qt5 support looks quite decent.

Maybe a good alternative to Audacity?

Can you imagine Audacity using Qt and Carla's custom theme?

I guess it would look a little something like this...

πŸ§™ πŸš€

works on a real windows too, trying quickly in a VM with a custom theme.

btw, I did not know before, but wxwidgets supports Qt... that leads to some interesting ideas πŸ€”

Progress on custom Audacity build.
win64 binary building and running via Wine for quick testing (yes, cross-compiled mingw64 stuff from Linux)
Recording works, LV2 plugins are available to use, which is nice to see.
Still on the tweaking of build system. Will try win32 builds next, then macOS-universal.

I do not know where this comes from, someone shared it at work.
But pretty funny and informative at the same time

under ideal conditions, I am having 10ms latency for browser audio "recording".
this does not take into account internet/network, just local.
it is not very stable at that, often being at 20ms and at worse 40ms.
I dont think it is possible to go lower than this for the inputs.

now, from my tests before the playback latency is usually much lower, but still have to find a good way for this in native code and no more python...

Apparently this is what happens when you mistankenly have a while loop on a realtime function...

System is locked up yes. Maybe SSH still works so I can kill my rogue tool.. worst case sys rq reisub to the rescue...

Lockups happen sometimes while testing, but didnt expect for it affect graphics 😱

Preparing factory presets for Vitalium.
Our dear @unfa gets a dedicated bank :D
