In case you were wondering, I’m still around. So here’s a quick update on what’s going on.
First of all, if you haven’t yet heard, I’ve gotten myself involved in iOS development. Specifically, I’m working on an iPad app that can handle drawing vero layouts, just because that’s a tool I’ve been wanting for myself. It’s lots of fun and very time consuming, and it’s what I spend probably 90% of my free time doing these days. With a bit of luck I’m hoping to have the first version done before the end of the year.
Second, I’ve been tinkering with the tap-tempo stuff for a while now. And as far as the chips themselves go I’m really happy. Where I’m less than happy is with the implementation. Having built the clock box, a tremolo and a phaser now, I’m seeing/hearing clock noise on the audio path and it’s not going anywhere 🙁 Time to finally read up on analog/digital grounding, noise handling, layout considerations etc. Any suggestions on good books or places to start reading?
Finally, I haven’t given up on drawing layouts. And when/if I get the aforementioned software up and running I plan on a major overhaul of all the content here, as well as a lot of new layouts.
Stay in touch, and happy building!
