Problemer med server - lydstudioet er uten maskin

2015-08-30

Sist mandag fikk vi problemer med serveren vår. Det viste seg å være mange og sammensatte problemer som har tatt tid å løse, og vi fikk først tjenestene i gang igjen seint i går.

Uten å gå inn i alle detaljene, så har serveren hardware-problemer som gjør at vi ikke kan bruke den lengre. Som en midlertidig løsning har vi flyttet alle tjenester over på maskinen som har pleid å stå på lydstudioet. Vi tror dette skal fungere greit og stabilt som en midlertidig løsning til vi får migrert tjenester til nye plattformer. Vi ser også at vi nå har litt høyere hastighet på serveren.

Dessverre medfører dette at vi for tiden er uten maskin på lydstudioet. Vi tror ikke det er noe stort problem, i.o.m. at de fleste brukerne uansett velger å bruke sin egen laptop når de jobber på lydstudioet. Men hvis du har planer om å bruke studioet i tiden fremover, og trenger at det er en maskin der, er det viktig at du gir oss beskjed så tidlig som mulig, slik at vi kan se hva vi kan få til.

THEME for Article Biennale 2016

The New Eden – or the new paradise … What happens when people gains the knowledge of everything and the opportunity to create things in its image? Where is the boundary between good and evil, and will we be able to know everything or have eternal life?

According to the Judeo-Christian creation myth the first humans lived carefree and innocent in them to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.

The 2016 Article Biennial exhibition The New Eden explores our advanced knowledge of manipulating life, and where we might be headed with this.

In the New Eden are creatures that have been created through sophisticated intervention in the natural order. Today we have enough knowledge to create gold, make skin resist bullets, and store information in DNA. What do we do with this knowledge? And what does it do to us? What are the implications of the new biotechnology on society?

We are calling for Nordic artists and academics who can contribute to the program.

The art exhibition will be supplemented by events in the form of discussion panels, artist’s presentations and activities aimed at children and youths. The development of a mobile laboratory that will tour the district during the exhibition period is also planned.

We ask prospective participants to send an email presenting their suggested contribution to the program. The submitted material should not exceed 2Mb, and should be sent to contact@article.no
DEADLINE 20.AUGUST 2015

Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper 1.0.b5

2015-08-07

A new beta version of Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper is available at ambisonictoolkit.net

This version fixes an issue with the binaural decoder and Spherical HRTFs at 88.2 and 96 kHz. Thanks to Juan Pampin for pointing out this bug in the code.

Additionally, there’s a new channel (within track) mute and solo utility plugin that can come in handy when doing effects processing on a B-format => BtoA => FXs => AtoB => Bformat signal processing chain. I would then insert the MuteSoloChannels plugin before the AtoB plugin in order to monitor the effect of the processing on each of the channels of the A-format signal.
