Audio plugin galore

My audio plugin collection is starting to get pretty serious, so I did an inventory of all the audio plugins and software I currently own šŸ™‚ After more than ten years, it is finally starting to feel like I have everything I need, and have just the right tools (or even multiple options) for all of the things I regularly do. Plugins: iZotope Native Instruments DDLY Komplete 11 Select Insight 2 Phasis Mobius Filter Razor […]


Back from the dead…

I’m starting to re-activate this old website that I set-up originally in 2016 but haven’t been updating in more than two years now. Maybe this time I will actually start pushing content here more regularly, like movie reviews in addition to some programming stuff. Let’s see how this goes on the second time around šŸ™‚


Analysing the Serato DJ timecode signal 6

Serato DJĀ (and previously Scratch Live) is one of the leading DJ software applications out there, and in my personal experience by far the most widely used. I have played almost all of my dj gigs with the Serato software since January 2007.Ā Serato DJ and the old Scratch Live, together with an appropriate sound card, form a so called DVS setup, which is short for Digital Vinyl System. Nowadays these software solutions do much much more […]


Oscilloscope Software Project

A personal programming project made up 70% of the mandatory programming course in the computer science minor at Aalto, and naturally, I chose an oscilloscope as my topic as it combined nicely my early studies of electrical engineering and audio signals. It turned out quite nicely (well, I did spend way over a hundred hours on it), and I learnedĀ QtĀ pretty well doing it. The software was done with Python (which was dictated by the course) […]


Password Helper

Remembering passwords can be a pain in the ass, especially if you want them to be strong passwords, i.e. long, complex and different for every service. A password manager software can help a lot, and they have some pretty awesome features nowadays like automatically changing all your passwords every once in a while. However, even though most password managers sync data across all your devices, they failĀ big time when you need to login to something […]


Fun with Arduino 1

I got an Arduino Uno starter kit on loan from school for a physical computing project for the Experimental User InterfacesĀ -course. To refresh my Arduino skills from last year (when I did a semi-big project with it on another course), I created a simple set-up and code for controlling LEDs with a potentiometer and buttons. Also the LEDs aren’t just toggled on or off, but instead the voltages areĀ pulse-width modulatedĀ to achieveĀ fading in and out. Here’s […]
