Linux Digital Audio Workstation Roundup - Freedom Penguin
In the Linux ecosystem, there is no shortage of Digital audio workstations to chose from. Whether you wish to create minimalist techno or full orchestral pieces, chances are there is an application that has you covered.

In this article, we will take a brief look into several of these applications and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. I will try to provide a fair evaluation of the DAWs presented here but at the end of the day, I urge you to try a few of these applications and to form an opinion of your own.

CLASSIC TRACKS: The Bee Gees 'Stayin' Alive' |
"Then Albhy and I came up with the idea of finding two bars [of real drums] that really felt good and making an eternal tape loop." In fact, the engineer's initial intention had been to take two bars of the four-track drums from 'Night Fever', re-record these about 100 times and then splice them together in order to create a new track. It was only while he, Galuten and the band listened and listened and listened to the song over the Auratones in order to find the best couple of bars that Richardson then decided to copy these onto the half-inch tape of an MCI four-track machine and create the aforementioned loop.

"The drums from 'Night Fever' basically consisted of two bars at 30ips," he says. "The tape was over 20 feet long and it was running all around the control room — I gaffered some empty tape-box hubs to the tops of mic stands and ran the tape between the four-track machine and an MCI 24-track deck, using the tape guides from a two-track deck for the tension. Because it was 4/4 time — just hi-hats and straight snare — it sounded steady as a rock, and this was pre-drum machine. For the tempo I used the varispeed on the MCI four-track, so the drums that ended up on the 24-track were at least third-generation, and because the tape heads were so badly worn I brightened the tracks that were already Dolby A-encoded with high-end EQ from the API console."

Adobe demos “photoshop for audio,” lets you edit speech as easily as text | Ars Technica
VoCo works by ingesting a large amount of voice data (about 20 minutes right now, but that'll be improved), breaking it down into phonemes (each of the distinct sounds that make up a spoken language), and then attempting to create a voice model of the speaker—presumably stuff like cadence, stresses, quirks, etc., but Adobe hasn't provided much detail yet.

What will cities sound like when they're filled with electric vehicles? | The London Sound Survey
Unfortunately, a close reading of the European Union directive mentioned by the Fuzzy Logic Project suggests tight constraints which won’t leave much room for cars playing tunes like ice cream vans. Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 540/2014 requires that manufacturers start fitting an ‘Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System’ or AVAS to all hybrid and electric vehicles from 2019. The kind of sound is further defined in Annex VIII:
The sound to be generated by the AVAS shall be a continuous sound that provides information to the pedestrians and other road users of a vehicle in operation. The sound should be easily indicative of vehicle behaviour and should sound similar to the sound of a vehicle of the same category equipped with an internal combustion engine.

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Commission welcomes Parliament vote on decreasing vehicle noise
So-called 'Acoustic Vehicle Alerting Systems' requirements shall ensure that only adequate sound generating devices are used which will also lead to a harmonisation of the applied technology. The fitting as such will be mandatory for all Electric and hybrid electric vehicles after a transitional period of 5 years. This will increase road safety and undoubtedly help avoiding road-accident injuries.

Rolling interviews | The Bike Show - a cycling radio show and podcast from Resonance FM
For the technologically-minded out there (and there have been several requests for this information), Jack conducts rolling interviews using an ElectroVoice RE50 reporter’s microphone and an Fostex FR2-LE solid state recorder. The ElectroVoice has amazing wind resistance and is very ruggedly built, so can be dropped without much risk of damage. The Fostex was a big upgrade from an Edirol R-09 which served valiantly for three years until it started falling apart.

For anyone looking to make a start in audio recording, a couple of recommended recorders are:

Olympus LS-5 – Excellent value, good sound, very portable, long battery life.

Sony PCM M10 – Very good quality sound, particularly on low output dynamic microphones and super-long battery life.

 Passport to Dreams Old & New: A Musical Souvenir of Walt Disney World
"What I sought to do here above all else was to give a stronger sense of both history and memory than the typical fan audio project. Besides cross-referencing all of the historical material and my supplemental research, I've included dozens of ambient sounds recorded in-park - all the streams, waterfalls, and incidental sounds which make up the textural landscape of the Magic Kingdom of our memories." --it's the distribution method that is most interesting here: just a big curated mixed media tarball lobbed into various channels for those that wish to share the sensations.
