// MARK: Mixing Swift and Accelerate. And generics. ›

Thursday, February 19, 2015

When I first built my SMUGMath-Swift project back around WWDC time, I kept getting frustrated by the impedance mismatch when trying to move data between Swift and Accelerate. Furthermore, I kept finding myself working to create a suitable collection of...


Reflecting on Ten Years of FuzzMeasure ›

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

I had just finished building a set of home-built loudspeakers when I decided to build a tool that would help me test and evaluate those speakers. FuzzMeasure 1.0 shipped on November 19, 2004 after months of hard work. The direction...


Starting Signal Processing ›

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

People often ask what introductory books that I recommend they read to get started with audio signal processing. There are two books I suggest, one of which is optional. While starting out, I happened upon a book by Ken Steiglitz...

TapeDeck and Capo Updates for the Mac ›

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

This week I shipped Capo 2.1.10 and TapeDeck 1.5.2. Capo 2.1.10 addresses a few major issues that were found in the 2.1.9 update, as well as some longer-standing ones. For instance, the default keyboard shortcuts failed to operate properly and...


Capo 2.1.9 ›

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

It was an odd coincidence that Capo 2.1.9 was released on the same day as Capo 1.3 for iOS. I submitted both products on the same day, and fully expected the Mac update to take twice as long. I’m glad...
