Before I jumped into this rabbit hole, I wouldn’t have thought that onset detection would be so deviously tricky! I just wanted to generate ADSR envelopes from the multichannel guitar signal. It looked easy, until I actually tried to implement it. But now I think I have something that works really well.
Ascend VPU v1.1.1 is released. This is still an extension of the evaluation period to March 31, 2021 and probably through April. Why the long gestation period? This will be the first of a series of plugins dedicated to the multichannel guitar. I want to be sure everything is working flawlessly. Ascend-VPU will pave the way to more Ascend plugins, all dedicated to the multichannel guitar.
An apology. I am an advocate of Open Source. But after having shared open-source projects for over 20 years now, starting with my contributions to the Boost libraries, it pains me to say that I am closing some of my source code for pragmatic concerns. The first to be closed are the technologies that are in very active development — that would be pitch detection and onset detection.
Here are some close-up pictures of the guitar after installing the full Nu-XR system. It was a joy installing the electronics for this guitar. This non-traditional guitar has no cavities at all. It’s just a full wide open space for the components and wiring. I think this is the easiest installation I’ve ever done. Every inch of this guitar is a RADICAL declaration.
Pictures paint a thousand words. Watch this space…
