and by tricky I mean, not practical for real world use (you can *hope* that the system will draw your bitmap before you need to resize it in response to a user action, but can you ever know???).

Posted by Justin on Sun 01 Dec 2019 at 10:13 from 108.30.215.x
Just a note -- if you use wantsLayer/drawsAsync, you need to make sure your source bitmap is persistent and not resized until it gets drawn. So it's a bit tricky sometimes.

Thanks for looking into this. Much appreciated!

interesting choice of lampshades!! obviously,it makes everything much better sounding..kinda grass hat style! portable echo chamber!
tunes are coming along.. welldone.

Wow, wantsLayer and drawsAsync made a night and day difference here - thanks for this deep dive. The obscure, ever changing nature of this issue has definitely been a bear.

Posted by Justin on Mon 05 Aug 2019 at 20:40 from 108.30.215.x
ah nice! I should try the drawsAsynchronously attribute... though I might still need to use metal in order to do partial updates and out-of-context updates...

I was having the same problem (and have been following your saga since 2017, when I first became aware of similar issues, first with Cairo, now with my own library)

Anyway, I just stumbled upon somebody's git commit and it solved my issue (and how!)


My code which draws a CGImage, then some more stuff on top of it, went from < 5fps full screen to 100+, on a 5k iMac.

=) ahhh yesyes...generations of musical tastes..
a question that need only be answered by thyself= "do i want to be a rockstar,or king coder?"
wish you great learning!

Posted by Justin on Sat 13 Jul 2019 at 22:46 from 108.30.215.x
At different times in my life, definitely. RHCP - BSSM was a big influence to the 13 year-old me...

Posted by bri on Fri 12 Jul 2019 at 07:50 from 2.26.240.x
heh-nice....really like the band morphing thing.. ;)
few bum notes..but overall, it sounds very much like your getting good band unity going--timing is tighter-passion+skill increases,as confidence grows!
i guess a lot of music is about total confidence- in 1's own performances/abilities +others around..
tbh though-the guy sitting down on stage,did'nt really work forme* :p
keep going... eventually it will all just snap into place. synchonized_ synchronicity! =)

question: "did you have 1 song that really used to energize you as a younger person? any 1 song/style in particular have a massive inspiration effect??"

Posted by bri on Thu 06 Jun 2019 at 14:19 from 2.26.240.x
kool-- heh,as much i admire running+runners-- i leave it to the pro's!! hop on a bike,and off we go!! =)
i reckon the cold dip done something...after listening to todays streams am noticing a tightening of drum timings+ your voice is beginning to...shine! ;)
ya got a great voicing,please release it! --> goodstuffs-

Posted by br i on Wed 22 May 2019 at 12:37 from 2.26.240.x
😎 good feedback-- ya know- i reckon super8 could also help to expand a bands arrangements,as each player could then focus more on harmonizing extra parts--it's not only great for practice-but also fuller compositions..lol anywayz..
artwork: would this art design end up on a cd/dvd,or just for personal uses?
you do realize--when all is said n done--these works will become 'famous' in their own right..s. ;) keep flowing!!

jfyi-- when streaming content from main feed- if 1 switches to this comment page,stream ceases :/
happy dayz though!

Posted by Justin on Tue 21 May 2019 at 20:00 from 108.30.215.x
Some of them are named after the fact... I haven't used super8 in a while, I don't usually use it when playing with others. When playing alone sometimes I'll use it and just jam live as if it were a performance, other times I'll get different grooves going, then export them to a .rpp for editing.. and then other times I'll just record things to a click or freeform in REAPER without super8. Lately it's been non-super8, I think the last time I used it was February...

Posted by b ri on Tue 21 May 2019 at 13:41 from 2.26.240.x
heh-do we all just ❤️ computers? ㋛
still,without such machines some good stuff could not be expressed so well.. !
nice switching with the recordings--many tracks..many names.. u must have great memory/+memories?!
+question= do you mainly use js super8 for your own 'personal projects/practicings??

Posted by Justin on Mon 20 May 2019 at 11:11 from 217.63.102.x
Yeah computer crashed while out of town, doh! will have it back up in the next 24h

Posted by b ri on Mon 20 May 2019 at 05:52 from 2.26.240.x
hey justin...better check the player=broken..no trackings will play today :/

Posted by br i on Sun 19 May 2019 at 09:20 from 2.26.240.x
wow--is it a van with repeating skidding tyre marks..or a predator style alien facemask with tentacled dreadlocks? ;)
the little splash of colour> really sets it off..

Posted by irb on Sat 30 Mar 2019 at 23:00 from 95.145.189.x
hey justin...after checkin both 'i once could spell' + 'stupidity around me'...i reckon you got a great voice,but your holding back! ..let it out!! just a little more..you have it inside..let it out mayyyng. ;)
be free,like the dove..^above^ ;) 1luv.

Posted by b irb on Fri 22 Mar 2019 at 08:56 from 95.145.189.x
hmm..quite agree.. dove from above=1love!

Posted by irb on Wed 20 Mar 2019 at 18:57 from 95.145.189.x
lolz-oh kool....shame about the memory corruption though ;)
i suffer the same fate,since many head trauma...memory recall has suffered as a result.. also remember having the recoil style early in life,and the eventual 'phone lock thingy' -lolz...sighz..
i say lines,as the pun,,but many artists have really,really unique ..lines..strokes..brush technique.. figure this to be like a soft pencil..hb or something.? graphite,plumbago is an amazing element!
+have always been a sketcher,even sonically,since from when i remember...heh.gj.

Posted by Justin on Wed 20 Mar 2019 at 18:03 from 108.30.215.x
was at a friend's house, and there was a book of "492 things to draw" or something, that was one of them (rotary phone). So it was pretty much from memory, but I couldnt't remember which way the numbers went (and where the finger-stop was)...

Posted by bri on Sat 16 Mar 2019 at 12:11 from 95.151.177.x
hmm,some interesting lines here-and nice you look at the old+new! there was something unique about the dialer-the mechanical movements..waiting for each recoil ectetc..heh =)
do you have 1? or just an interesting subject?

Posted by ibr on Sat 22 Dec 2018 at 06:00 from 2.28.235.x
lol-- the vocals are fine...although,i do feel you seem to,hold back a little..? let your vbox shine like a star!!
thanx so much for sharing these creations justin,and all your crew members.

Posted by Justin on Fri 21 Dec 2018 at 11:43 from 108.30.215.x
By fixing I mean removing a vocal part haha

Posted by bri on Fri 21 Dec 2018 at 05:53 from 2.28.235.x
it's a great thing being 2x better at fixing-than breaking!! =)

Posted by Justin on Thu 20 Dec 2018 at 19:19 from 108.30.215.x
Hmm try that again actually, that might have been my fault (rerendering the mp3 to fix an issue, doh!)

Posted by bri on Thu 20 Dec 2018 at 18:48 from 2.28.235.x
hey-jfyi-the new plisting seems to be glitching @ dy trk 8/9// both firefox+ms edge.. see here> drive.google.com/open?id=1DPMqdNxN...

Posted by bir on Thu 20 Dec 2018 at 06:30 from 2.28.235.x

Posted by b r i on Tue 18 Dec 2018 at 06:43 from 2.28.235.x
hey-the mini web players seem to be broken today justin.. files load-no play though!

Posted by Gio on Sat 15 Dec 2018 at 04:45 from 79.130.161.x
We love it anyway, but I guess that would help.

Posted by Justin on Fri 14 Dec 2018 at 14:49 from 108.30.215.x
Hmm I think the only real problem is the embedding of youtube videos, perhaps I should change those to simple links.

Posted by bri on Fri 14 Dec 2018 at 06:49 from 2.28.235.x
great workings-with more to follow...! +ty

Posted by Gio on Fri 14 Dec 2018 at 00:20 from 79.130.185.x
Hmm, I thought about it for a moment and the thing that stand out from the old format was the logical separation. You had a nice place dedicated for music delivery and discovery that become WHUMP and lost its charm, then you had your blog for things you typed and then you had your youtube channel for videos and it was nice to make a choice depending the mood; that made sense back then and I think still do today.

Nowadays, in contrast you have turned your blog to a random feed of stuff slow to load. I'd rather have a link like -Yes, Exactly, Yes! December 2019- point to a playlist at youtube from loading all those youtube frames in the blog. Or if you like it the way it is make some kind of taxonomy and place tags videos/text/music. Finally, definitely kill the autoload...

Posted by Gio on Thu 13 Dec 2018 at 23:01 from 79.130.185.x
I always thought that the old website format for displaying your music and your ideas was superior in comparison with the ``new'' one (Javascript, AJAX, Clippy, Autoload, WHUMP, status bar as player, and 310MB just for the front page, etc); it's confusing to navigate and search for things. If I am not mistaken the old format had licensing and credits too which was informative and useful (like Dr. Askave album).

Ideally I would go with something simple and straight forward like allowing streaming, individual song download and in case of an album an additional download all. Also have in mind that some people don't like to stream videos for a long listening session due to CPU/RAM usage, etc.

The worst of all is that something tells me that the old format is still available but the link is somewhere buried...

Anyway, I realize that those are not a priority and you have so much going on, so not much of a problem for me; the quality of the music has indeed increased, I wish you the best for your future endeavors.

And by the way, what's the difference of -yes, exactly, yes!- and -decanted youth-?

You got it man. :)
Listening to these sessions brings back such awesome memories and makes me very envious.

Posted by Justin on Wed 05 Dec 2018 at 18:09 from 108.30.215.x
Awww next time you're out you'll have to take over!

I also like this version, which is smaller/slower, and looks different:

function set_hsv(h,s,v) global() (
h*=$pi/180; s *= v; v-=.5*s;

Posted by bri on Sat 27 Oct 2018 at 10:54 from 2.28.235.x
heh-lots of jammings! with tripped out fx+visuals -always different,raw.
1 wonders if you also do code jams!!? :p
the visuals from milkdrop2 i think are ace>(programmable) *would have been* most exellent inside reaper!! =)
j ja jjjajaaam on it..

Posted by irb on Fri 26 Oct 2018 at 07:14 from 2.28.235.x
hmm-interestingly i was directed straight to this>
"A professor of law at Tulane University, for example, would assign it third place in the annals of arrogance. His name was Oliver Houck. “The greatest arrogance was the stealing of the sun,” he said. “The second-greatest arrogance is running rivers backward. The third-greatest arrogance is trying to hold the Mississippi in place. The ancient channels of the river go almost to Texas. Human beings have tried to restrict the river to one course—that’s where the arrogance began.” The Corps listens closely to things like that and files them in its archives. Houck had a point."

music helps to heal^ have fun!

I'm reminded of this classic article:


Posted by b r i on Thu 25 Oct 2018 at 12:16 from 2.28.235.x
yeah-again this piece fits the footage well-- like the drop in tempo and the play on tempo!

* fwiw- it's truly a shame to see both nature+humans suffer in any way--but really, > man tries to control nature >with disasterous results< sigh.

there is no competition until we make it so- gaia has to absorb,transform and release all this stuff people litter it with.. the amount of floods globally is quite shocking,nature only does what it does.. ;)
nature tries to sow as we reap,, !*

Posted by bri on Thu 25 Oct 2018 at 11:59 from 2.28.235.x
yep! really enjoyed this 1- + the footage fits well. =)

Posted by bri on Mon 22 Oct 2018 at 13:42 from 2.28.235.x
yeah-dope* >always reminding of "can" in the early70's

Posted by bri on Sat 20 Oct 2018 at 08:02 from 2.28.235.x
+ crotchcam+haircam+speccam+bikecam = multicam man--jolly good shows!!! lol!

Posted by bri on Sat 20 Oct 2018 at 08:00 from 2.28.235.x
lol--could'nt put the whole hour into this 1 so 2x speed was really fun!
observations @ 2xspeed- 1st love bikes+the super highways are better now_that^ looks similar to london's streets/playgrounds..interesting stop off @ the shop cellar? :p - @night you quite literally light up every pavement,face,plant,building,vehicle-everything with your passing...which only fades as your presence passes..! shine! ;)
tbh-(forme) really like the music @2x speed--that extra pace,tones + your vocals all sound__very different :D!
please be extra carefull in the city-noticed you have 'them people' as well :/ =take care.

My website is called Blerp.com so I looked you up because it's similar in name, and i was impressed with your work! I love the lighting!!
