Beat Software Is A should For city Genre fanatics

Adding the Impact – To add the delay effects in Adobe Audition, pull up the Mixer see by hitting Alt + 2 from the main multitrack screen. In this view, find the monitor that you want to include delay results to, and click one of the arrows in the open effects hubs below the “FX” for that monitor. Scroll to delay and choose the hold off impact that you want to use.

music industryThis change was essential for me to be in a position to continue to develop by career with a group of faithful people that I believe in. As soon as I made these changes, I was free to concentrate on making my new recording. I began composing the new music and with great well being and a clear mind and I was so happy to be back again in the studio once more doing what I love.

Oh he sails on yachts, he has invested time with me a few times, he likes to read and enjoys to hear teachings by some of the best teachers of the Bible up right here.

Recording and publishing a CD is quite inexpensive these times – in many cases, you can create CDs for under a greenback each. Of course, it might price a bit more if you use a buy Futuristic beats. but this usually isn’t necessary. You don’t want your CD to come off as a slick advertising pitch, so overproducing your CD can actually damage you.

Dirty Cables – It’s nice to handle cables at recording studios. They don’t make your fingers black as you roll them with each other at the end of the session. The amount of soiled XLR cables you require to throw around at a live location make your hands as black as a coal miner’s.

To further refresh myself, I went into the dressing space to splash cold drinking water on my face. As I was looking up into the mirror, an unusual believed came to me. I realized today was going to be a very essential one in my lifestyle; that something was heading to occur.

AR- new access points to not-so-new stories?

with AR we will need to shift from a dependence on the technology alone to wow audiences, and toward cultivating captivating experiences and stories to evoke wonderment. This is a critical time to be exploring the capacity for storytelling in AR, as Grau writes, before the jeopardy of any staleness arises.

“…with AR we will need to shift from a dependence on the technology alone to wow audiences, and toward cultivating captivating experiences and stories to evoke wonderment. This is a critical time to be exploring the capacity for storytelling in AR, as Grau writes, before the jeopardy of any staleness arises.”

I see that what AR claims as “new ways of telling stories” are, in most cases,”wow” ways to access stories that are actually not so new when technology itself is the objective. Objects or spaces, which are supposed to be just sitting quietly in front of you, react and throw stories at you from the air. I wonder if the fundamental of what story is can be affected or challenged by AR.

On “haunted” and “weird” media…

From Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation (2013) by Alexander R. Galloway, Eugene Thacker, and McKenzie Wark…

Whereas haunted media expressed the mediation of the supernatural in positive terms, with weird media mediation only indicates a gulf or abyss between two ontological orders. Sometimes the supernatural is present but not apparent (e.g., an invisible creature that never- theless exists within our same reality, but outside the visible spectrum). At other times the supernatural is apparent but not present (e.g., unnamable entities from other dimensions). (133)

To summarize: media are “haunted” when they affirmatively mediate between two different ontological orders, and by trans- forming the object into a divine object (the artifact or the por- tal). By contrast, media are “weird” when they negatively medi- ate between two ontological orders, whereby the object recedes into a thing. (133-134)

question

Helen Papagiannis talks about machine learning and the future of AR operating without the user having to tell it to. As this “always on, always working” technology becomes more ubiquitous, I’m curious if there are ways to prevent the “worst case, Black Mirror” scenario of the the technology being used against the user, either through a third party that takes advantage of it or the technology itself deciding to overwrite the desires of the user.

Questions about Helen Papagiannis’ “Augmented Human”…

A few questions raised by Papagiannis’ Augmented Human… (more…)

Wed, November 29 2017 » augmented reality, haptic » No Comments » Author: sRoberts

Question relate to Augmented Human and Chris Marker’s Immemory also a question for previous week

Augmented Human the book propose new ways of extending our senses, but more importantly to me–means to interact with digital content. While reading chapter 6 “Storytelling and the human imagination” of the book, I can’t help but think about Chris Marker’s work “Immemory”. As a hypertext document of sense memories made in late 90s, I wonder how storytelling conventions propose in chapter 6 of “Augmented Human” can reimagine the project using new technologies that immerse the audience in virtual environment or project digital content through touchable objects.

Also i just remember that I forget to post a question for week 7’s reading, and since it’s a little related to this week and the last couple of week’s content, I’m gonna to post it below:

the chapter “The crisis of cinema in the age of new world memory: The baroque legacy of Jean-Luc Godard” from “Digital Baroque” strikes as particularly interesting–partially due to my academic interest in Jean Luc Godard’s body of works and my curiosity as to how a French new wave filmmaker’s aesthetic would overlap with Baroque aesthetic to reshape digital media of the future.

In this chapter, the concept of “fold” is not only relate to “shortening” Time-image of digital content but also relate to “shortening” of production process of such content. After readingt his chapter, I can see how Godard’s experimental usage of time, space and image as well as the hyperselective quality of baroque art can both be used to disrupt and re-define the narrative model of “future cinema” or “new media” of the future. However, would such re-definition and disruption would bring crisis to cinema and ? or would it simply allow us to explore quality of narrative model in cinema that we thought don’t exist?

Questions

Throughout the course we have studied VR and AR and their potential to enhance reality and create new experiences. In Augmented Reality, Papagiannis distinguishes between VR and AR, stating that AR does not trade our world, rather it combines the digital with the actual. Both, however, aim to alter or augment our reality in one way or the other. Do you believe that there is more potential in one, either AR or VR, to create and construct new ways of thinking and new experiences that have a postive and influential impact on the world?
Papagiannis discusses the augmented human as a time when technology is seemlessy embedded into the body. What are the implications of such movement and how will regulation surrounding such technologies work?

Augmented Reality for Mental Illness

As someone who has struggled with mental illness for pretty much his whole life, one avenue I hope Helen Papagiannis explores (should there exist technology out there) in future editions of her book, is the role AR can play in treating mental illness.  She does go into detail in chapter 8 about the rise of “calm technology” but I think things can be taken further.  I offer a few thoughts as ways sufferers of mental illness can benefit from technology.

For people with ADHD/ADD, perhaps a kind of AR that simplifies reality in lieu of augmenting it.  For example, if someone struggles with information overload at say a shopping centre, the AR should present reality with FEWER distractions and not more.  I struggle with shopping malls all the time and I guess I wish there was a way to limit distractions so I can think clearer.

For someone with depression, perhaps a way to see the world in brighter, happier colours, to get one’s mind out of depressive thoughts and such…

For someone with schizophrenia, who say has trouble with hallucinations, an AR that can tell you what’s real and what isn’t…yeah I know, this is likely the start of a good sci-fi short story, but hey, just throwing it out there.

Augmented Human Presentation Notes

Hello everyone, here are my notes for today’s presentation on Augmented Human by Dr. Helen Papagiannis:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y9rOX6SPBC0Vo30tP06K9_gbPOMR79-KWKgz_2s8Vck/edit?usp=sharing

While the summary itself is pretty long, the book itself is dense with examples of new technological advances and information on a wide range of technologies. Instead of focussing on all of them, I have opted to instead summarize and direct our attention to the things I found interesting, to the things we’ve discussed in class, or to things that are simply cool/weird/radical/mathematical/etc.

There are questions throughout the notes, so I hope you will take some time to look through them, ponder on my musings, gather some of your own, and prepare for a debate on what it means to be an augmented human.
