1. 🎼 Three Rivers

    A condensed and lightly processed field recording, presenting the sonic characters of the three rivers which flow past my house.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
