I recently found on Cornell #arXive a new pre-print (2023) on #RNN and #LSTM by Alex Sherstinsky of MIT. Through the years, I've read numerous papers on RNNs, starting with Rumelhart's 1986 paper. But this one is, by far, the most detailed tutorial not only on RNNs but also on LSTMs.

The complete derivations of both forward (inference) and backward (training) passes of the learning algorithm use only basic calculus and matrix algebra, drawing intuitive analogies to digital signal processing #DSP. And the equations are complete and detailed enough to be implemented by the student, directly in software. In my opinion, every undergrad EE and CS studying #DeepLearning #NeuralNetworks should read this superb introduction.

An article by Chips and Cheese covers Qualcomm's VLIW Hexagon Processor:

If you are an #unijena student and this sparked your interest, consider taking our #hpc lecture which provides a more gentle introduction to low-level Hexagon and System-on-Chip (SoC) programming in general:

#qualcomm #snapdragon #hexagon #hvx #dsp

Lotta #FFT #dsp replies. Didn't even occur to me this q sounded like that. I don't think it is

Given measured event times

t0 = 00:00
t1 = 01:59
t2 = 02:57
t3 = 04:50
t4 = 08:24

a priori: period is roughly 1h and is changing length slowly

Eyeballing this data, I can see that t1->t2 must be one period of 58m. Then I can tell that t0->t1 is a 60 and a 59 and t2->t3 is 57+56. So I know the period is changing 1m/cycle.

Now do it with noisy data, but answer is approximate

Each synth voice uses a randomized config & FX pipeline for each note played (osc → adsr → SVF → filter delay line). Generated audio is attached.

Key packages used:
- Signal generators & effects
- WAV file format export
- Time-sliced audio processing
- Reactive UI construction/updates

First meaningful plot for my project. It's a WDF model of a parallel diode clipper (like those in many distortion pedals).

I can adjust the number of forward or reverse diodes to change the amount of positive or negative clipping.

Now I need to try build a vacuum tube model from this. I have a couple papers for vacuum tube models already but I've been chewing through them the past 3 weeks with little progress. I'm hoping this is a step forward.

🎈✨ After 2.5 years of development, I'm excited to have released Facet v1.0.0! 🎉🎂

Facet is a live coding environment for algorithmic composition and synthesis.

With a code editor in the browser and a pair of NodeJS servers, it can generate, transform, and sequence audio, MIDI, and OSC data.

There are over 150 methods which can be combined in numerous ways to create unique DSP algorithms. These methods create and modify arrays of floating-point numbers which become lossless audio files or MIDI/OSC patterns.

In order to play back synthesized audio patterns, Facet uses a Max abstraction as a "receiver" for up to 4 channels of audio, and from Max it can go anywhere. The Max abstraction also pipes OSC out of its fifth outlet, making it possible to "live code" a prepared Max patch.

Also included in the repo are two Max for Live devices (stereo and 4 channel version), allowing you to send audio directly into Ableton Live tracks. With this setup, you can also create MIDI CC mappings to control Live device parameters.

If working with MIDI or OSC only, Facet can run as a standalone system, making it possible to run on a Raspberry Pi or computers with less CPU resources.

Facet runs on MacOS, Windows, and Linux.

Howdy tooters, any ideas how to compress floyd-steinberg dithered b/w images? The result doesn't need to be 1:1 with the original, it just has to look good. Traditional lossless compressors struggle with these. I have some ideas that I'm yet to try, but would love some more.

An example of a floyd-steinberg dithered b/w image.

@acousticmirror @daviwil #faust is so mind blowing tbh. its just so good, you can pick up any paper and implement it in minutes just from the diagrams, without even actually reading the paper. and the workflow of the diagrams hot reload is super satisfying. its honestly the best example of a the power #DSL(s) can offer. if you're already familiar with zero-delay #DSP you can pick it up in 5 minutes, and port things that require a small mountain of #csound code to like, 10 lines of faust in 15 minutes. its bafflingly good, and extremely declarative. if you understand a design — or hell, better yet, even if you *don't* understand it but have it ready at hand — you can implement it at the speed of reading.

last I was using it about 2 years ago it suffered from not having a proper fft story, which is certainly a significant area to not cover, but spectral processing is kinda nerdy anyway lol. what Faust offers is the best possible set of tools for getting deep and dirty with the most fundamental object of interest to the real dub heads — infinite impulse response filters, and the precise control over non-linearities they offer as elaborated in the filter theory of Vadim Zavalishin.

I'm working on an experiment involving embedding audio samples

I'm performing feature extraction using "Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients" (I don't understand very well but thankfully there are good libraries). That gives vectors which can be embedded down to 2D after a bit of cleanup and post-processing

I'm thinking about possibilities for building a sample browser based on this, letting you find similar samples and explore your library visually

#embeddings #dataviz #dsp

Screenshot of the emblaze web UI showing a 2D embedding of audio samples.  Samples are represented by dots of various colors arrayed into a scatter plot.  

Dots are colored to represent what kind of sample they are from.  There's a legend listing sample types on the left (fx, hat, kick, other, perc, snare, vocal)

One sample is hovered revealing blue lines connecting it to its nearest neighbors in the original high-dimension embedding space.  There is a list of names of samples including the hovered one and the nearest neighbors on the right.

The embedding has some decent structure.  Kick samples are very well differentiated and cluster together on the right along with 808 samples close by.  The left side is somewhat less organized but still pretty well differentiated with hat samples on the bottom and left, vocal samples on the top, and snare samples mostly on the right.

#GeorgeUpjohn, a former pilot in Sydney with brain cancer has been repeatedly rejected for the #DSP because his condition is steadily deteriorating. He's had to sell his possessions and borrowing increasingly large amounts of money from family to stay alive:

What happens to George when the same state that has refused to offer him the supports to live enthusiastically informs him that he qualifies to die?

The Australian state pays a *significant* amount of money to support me and people like me. What happens when they figure out instead of paying our #NDIS plans every year they can just pay a one-time cost to off us?

If this scares you, I'm glad. It scares me.

#ActuallyAutistic people in #Australia already die 17 years sooner than other Australians. I know I'll probably get less time than my predecessors:

(This pales compared to Autistics in the #US, whose life expectancy is *36*, or even #Sweden, the only other country where we have data, where it's only 54):

Many disabilities are similar: we are among the lowest-valued people in the world.

I want to thank

Text reading: Results. During the study period, 1367 deaths (1043 males and 324 females) in individuals with autism were recorded in the United States. The mean age at death for individuals with autism was 36.2 years (SD = 20.9 years), compared with 72.0 years (SD = 19.2 years) for the general population. Of the deaths in individuals with autism, 381 (27.9%) were attributed to injury (PMR = 2.93;95% CI = 2.64, 3.24), with suffocation (n = 90;PMR = 31.93; 95% CI = 25.69, 39.24) being the leading cause of injury mortality, followed by asphyxiation (n = 78;PMR = 13.50;95% CI = 10.68, 16.85) and drowning (n = 74;PMR=39.89;95% CI = 31.34, 50.06).

The pressures disabled people face in #Australia are not altogether very different from those of us in #Canada. Nearly half of disabled Australians live in poverty, over twice the OECD average and 2.5 times the Australian average:

We have 2x the unemployment rate & are more at risk of domestic violence, sexual assault, & mental illness. 100,000s of us sit on pensions that are half the Henderson poverty level, and less than 1% of rentals are even affordable to a person on the #DSP:

Our government has steadfastly rolled back pandemic protections over the last year: they know this plan will mass-kill disabled people, and create new disabled people, and they don't care.

So what’s going to happen when the state, refusing to offer enough resources to live, starts offering death on demand?

Many people don’t even qualify for disability services: non-citizens, except for refugees & asylum-seekers, can't get #Medicare (health care).

Non-citizens don't qualify for the #NDIS (support services) at all, regardless of disability severity.

Even citizens can't get the DSP (pension/money) without 10 years' residency and their condition being "fully treated" & "stabilised."

What does this mean?

Christian love demands #science!

Also interested in #civics and #elections particularly #electionreform and #electiondesign. Elections are fundamentally #DSP systems, which changes everything about how they should be run.

I guess I should write an #introduction.

I've been using the internet since 1992 and contributing to #Wikipedia since 2001. I haven't used Twitter since early 2021 because I decided it was unhealthy, and I used Mastodon a fair bit that year, but then lost my account through, apparently, inactivity, which I didn't realize was even a thing.

I guess I should put some kind of tag cloud here of stuff I'm interested in? Maybe #physics, #Linux, #Debian, #manufacturing, #DSP, #Python, #Numpy, #math (more #algebra than #analysis), #raytracing, #commonsbasedpeerproduction, #creativecommons, #piracy, #scihub, #libgen, #emergence, #solarpunk, #history (especially #Hellenistic and #Mohist), #UX, #HCI, #controltheory, #lifesupport, and #infosec.

I'm a retired software engineer in #PDX. I worked on #LLVM and other #compilers. Earlier, I did #DSP and #embedded computing. I was trained in #mathematics originally. I like #electronics and #microcontrollers.

I started a #woodworking hobby. I prefer to work with hand tools and go slow. I'm not starting a table factory to feed my family, so it's okay.

I learned recently that I'm #ActuallyAutistic. Currently recovering from #burnout that's likely related to this.
