1. Just recorded beautiful resonant thunder, strong peaks @ 1kHz 2kHz, consistent throughout whole storm, any idea what could be causing this?

  2. for anyone using QtMultimedia QAudioInput with python’s wave module to write PCM data to a wave file: to convert between QAudioFormat’s sampleSize() number and wave’s sample width number, divide by 8, e.g:

    wave_file_to_write.setsampwidth(audio_format.sampleSize() / 8)

    QAudioFormat’s sampleRate() number works as it is.

  3. A short recording of Gregory Jolivet’s beautiful 5-time waltz “Main Dans La Main” played in C on my Vio gurdy, after a post-travel maintenance session and string change:

    I’m now using a steel core, stainless steel wound low G chanter. It has a slightly harsher sound than the synthetic+silver strings I was using before, and is prone to attacks with lots of high partials, but is much more durable.

  4. Pelle Wessman: @BarnabyWalters http://auphonic.com/  good for indie publishing audio, Instacast great for consuming it, @timpritlove great at pushing it

    @voxpelli thanks for the links, auphonic looks like a great service! Certainly going to look into using that for automating stuff like audio encoding.

  5. Jovian Salak does Tom still record conversations? Do you know if he kept the ones he did record/does anything with them?
