Vittorio Camardese

Vittorio Camardese, an italian radiologist, developed an interesting tapping technique in the sixties. His style is much more similar to that of Stanley Jordan rather than that of Eddie Van Halen. But it is known that Wired Italia writers are not very versed in music.

TDR VOS SLICKEQ Mixing Mastering Equalizer

Tokyo Dawn Records did it again. After the great TDR FEEDBACK COMPRESSOR II, they have decided to give away another top notch plugin, the TDR VOS SLICKEQ. 
This little beast emulates classy analog audio gear offering a switchable EQ non-linearity and an output stage with 3 different saturation models. 

The main features: 
  • Carefully designed 64bit “delta” multi-rate structure 
  • Three EQ bands with additional 18dB/Oct high-pass filter 
  • Four distinct EQ models: “American”, “British”, “German” and “Soviet” with optional non-linearity 
  • Four output stages: “Linear”, “Silky”, “Mellow” and “Deep” 
  • Advanced saturation algorithms by VoS (“stateful saturation”) 
  • Highly effective and musically pleasing loudness compensated auto gain control 
  • Oversampled signal path including stateful saturation algorithms 
  • Stereo and sum/difference processing options 
  • Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management 
Windows and mac free download. Added immediately to The List.


Introduction to Programming for Musicians and Digital Artists aka Chuck 101 video lessons

Due to the many requests from friends and colleagues, the mythical Coursera/Calarts Introduction to Programming for Musicians and Digital Artists (aka ChucK 101) course video lessons can be downloaded below.

Download is offered for educational purposes and I do not have any permission to make these files available. If someone feels offended in any way, please drop a comment below and I will immediately remove the download link.

This course is one of the best introductions to electronic music composition (in addition to programming) I've ever seen. The teachers involved are kind of rockstars in the field: Ge Wang is the creator of ChucK and Smule, Perry Cook is a guru of computer music. A bit as Einstein and Bohr had done an online course in theoretical physics.

The best way to take advantage of this course is to follow along with the official textbook, which exemplifies and explores topics while maintaining the same course structure.
Have a nice trip!
