#protip 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)
sampleRate() number works as it is.
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.
Just found out about Vicente Parrilla, a rather excellent early recorder player with a focus on improv:
@voxpelli thanks for the links, auphonic looks like a great service! Certainly going to look into using that for automating stuff like audio encoding.
Jovian Salak does Tom still record conversations? Do you know if he kept the ones he did record/does anything with them?
