Re: TTS to file??

Something i looked into a while back. CMU Sphinx. Open Source Toolkit For Speech Recognition. http://cmusphinx.sourceforge.net/ I solved most of my speech related code stuff a while back, it was scrappy but worked. Im bogged down again in the vision stuff at the moment so i cant help directly ref sp...

Re: HAL9000 thinking machine all the bells & whistles

Been doing a ridiculous amount of R&D ref realistic android eyes. For now realistic tilt n pan mechanisms fit for androids or small robots are basically non existent. The day you can buy a USB powered fully functional android eye for $200 (or less) a pair will be the day that coders stop sniffin...

Re: KICKSTARTER

I feel i should mention here that im currently working on several kickstarter software projects and its a constant battle to keep the focus on 'end user benefits' ...overselling and under-delivering a primary area of concern for 'genuine producers' and 'integrity seeking backers' The latest move of ...

Re: Guitar Chord Finder - Because Online Chord Lists Suck!

@ Pritchard If i was to write i chord finder i would approach it from the perpective of the different notes that make up that chord Simple chords have just 3 or 4 notes, i would do a graphic of the entire fretboard and light up each of those notes in a different colour right across the fretboard...i...

Re: REAL TIME

Interesting read. If you go into your BIOS you can undervolt and underclock your CPU Both these things will reduce thermal peaks and reduce the likely hood of the computer throttling up and down. Older single core non threading CPU's being simpler and less fancy probably have less throttling capabil...

Re: Guitar Chord Finder - Because Online Chord Lists Suck!

At the end of the day your fingers have to 'instinctively know where to go' and that means committing brain neurons to the task. 90% of the effort required to master any physical musical instrument = muscle memory and that means an extremely tedious amount of physical practice because your brain is ...

Re: Guitar Chord Finder - Because Online Chord Lists Suck!

I printed out a huge fretboard with every note listed and hung it on my wall ( horizontal poster) I found this helped a great deal ref remembering/constructing chords Because the guitar is chromatic lengthways the easiest way to remember chords is to memorize half a dozen or so chord shapes and just...

Re: Sorting by colors

ideally you would want a colour scheme with 1000 colours, 256 is bit limited , ten thousand colours would be overwhelming to memorize A 1000 colour scheme is close to the 'utility sweet spot' as far as easy programming goes While 16bit and 32 bit give photo realistic levels the large numbers and bec...

Re: KICKSTARTER

Also, they tend to work at a pace they're comfortable with. One of the good things of not being on payroll is that you can work on what you want, when you want. I'm sure that most OSS developers on projects similar to FreeBASIC would laugh at the idea of being paid. Most people would not pay them t...

Re: REAL TIME

In addition Computer Cores are not stand alone devices, they share numerous resources with other cores and the rest of the system. Data Traffic jams and cache misses abound. (there are real world electrical errors as well ) A cold computer will run slightly faster than one that's been on for an hour...

My main interest is due to my involvement in vision systems for androids. Its been a fascinating voyage of discovery, every line of code allows you to see the world in a different way. One of my favorite code snipets s has been "only display stable pixels" (with a little bit of buffering o...

http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/ Ive been playing guitar for donkeys years, it was all books (and the odd video) back then. Russ Shipton, Ralph Denyer. Ah those where the days. I remember older guitarists saying that 'chord books were cheating' , back in there day the electric guitar for the masses...
