If you want some more information on Hook …

Then there’s more on the Retronyms site here. I thought I’d mention it as the video didn’t give much away, but there should be another video from them tomorrow with more details hopefully.

VirSyn adds a new app to their stable, VoxSyn is here, the details are all here:

VoxSyn turns your voice into the most flexible vocal sound generator ever. Instantly following even subtle modulations of pitch and spectral changes of your voice VoxSyn creates signature vocal sounds far beyond traditional vocoding.

The basic sounds are selected from a vast pool of predefined sounds from the famous TERA synthesis engine which can be further expanded by its unique random sound generator.

The harmonic table note layout visualizes your voices pitch in realtime and also let you play notes for more traditional vocoder effects.

The output can be recorded to an audio file which you
can use with other Apps and programs for further processing.

Apologies for the silence …

I’ve been quiet for a few days now and I thought I really ought  to say why. First off, last week was insanely busy with projects and work, and that meant that I could find almost no time to post to PalmSounds. But these things happen.

The second reason came when I got up on Friday morning to find that the UK had decided to drop any sense of reason and vote to leave the EU. Quite frankly I’m still in shock from this. It makes no sense whatsoever, and it signals a very dark time for the UK in just about every way imaginable.

Since Friday we’ve seen the initial fall out from this terrible decision. Fear in the economy and markets. A falling pound, and, most alarmingly, a rapid increase in the activity of the far right. I can’t help but think that things are only going to get worse from here.

I’ve already heard a number of start ups question London as a base of operations, and I can understand their concerns. What will happen next one can only guess, but my impression is that it won’t be good. Friends of mine are already talking about moving to other EU countries within the exit window, which could be as short as two years. It’s no joke to have to uproot your life, but I expect to hear a lot more talk like this in the coming days and weeks.

I’ve been stunned. I’m shocked. I’m wondering what to do next. Stay or go, neither will be easy. But it seems that we now live in very uneasy times, very suddenly.
