Holofunk has been externally hibernating since last September; first I took a few months off just on general principles, and since then I’ve been hacking on the down-low. In that time I’ve fixed Holofunk’s time sync issue (thanks again to the stupendous free support from the BASS Audio library guys). I’ve added a number of visual cues to help people follow what’s happening, including beat meters to show how many beats long each track is, and better track length setting — now tracks can only be 1, 2, or a multiple of 4 beats long, making it easy to line things up. Generally I’m in a very satisfying hacking groove now.
And today Holofunk re-emerges into the public eye — I’m demoing at a Microsoft internal event dubbed the Science Fair, coinciding with Microsoft’s annual Hardware Summit. Root for me to win a prize if you have any good karma to spare today 🙂 I’ll post again in a day or two with an update on how it went.
I’ve also applied to be a speaker at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire the first weekend in June — will find out about that within a week. If that happens, then I’ll spread the word as to exactly when I’ll be presenting!
