Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Schnittstelle zwischen Gestaltung und Machine Learning. Bleibe ich Gestalter, wenn ich der Maschine nur den richtigen Denkanstoß gebe?

MACHINE EYES ist eine kleine Anwendung, die den User kleine Teile eines Gesamtbilds an ein BigBiGAN geben lässt. Dieses Machine Learning Model überlegt dann, ob es Objekte oder Regelmäßigkeiten in dem Ausschnitt erkennt und versucht, diese "in eigenen Bildern" wiederzugeben. Durch die bewusste Wahl über die Größe und Positionierung des Auschnitts kann die visuelle Abstrahierung gesteuert werden.

Entwickelt in vvvv gamma + RunwayML

And the patch goes on:

We've released not one, not two, but 3 bugfix releases for vvvv gamma in January. Read all about them in The ChangeLog.

We've also been hard at work on making VL.Audio into a first stable release that will eventually ship with vvvv directly, ie. no more extra install only to play with audio. Normal. Read all about it in the post with the captivating title Breaking - VL.Audio approaching stable.

The Mastering vvvv for teaching course has started. We got a whopping 42 applications which unfortunately we couldn't accommodate all. We had a tough time choosing but eventually settled on a nice blend of 20 people who are joining us from 9 different countries. Ah the joys of the modern age. If you were not chosen this time, we're hoping to have a new offer for you soon!

Oh and in case you missed it, you can still rewatch the 16th vvvv online meetup.

Dear audiophiles!

Here is to announce some long-overdue work on the VL.Audio pack with the goal to finally release a stable version of it. There are still some pending todos, but the main things are done. So in its latest previews, please find the following partly breaking changes:

Driver and Timing Configuration

The singleton AudioEngine node is gone and replaced by 2 simpler singleton nodes

  • DriverSettings
  • TimingSettings

But the idea is to mostly only use those when exporting applications. Because usually, you'd now simply use the new Audio Configuration extension (Alt+C). The UI for the extension is still missing at this point, but you get the idea. Meanwhile, you can manually modify \AppData\vvvv\gamma\VL.Audio.Configuration.xml (requires a restart of vvvv).

A third alternative is to use the new SettingsFromFile node that allows you to specify such a configuration.xml that you may want to check into a git-repo with your project.

Still, to get any audio out, you'll need either the dedicated ASIO driver of your sound device or one of the generic ASIO drivers installed.

Buffer nodes

A new set of nodes allows you to record/play and save/load audio, using buffers. For now these nodes are still marked with the experimental aspect, because we may still apply breaking changes, but the idea is ready for testing. Create a Buffer node and then work it with the following:

  • BufferRecorder
  • BufferPlayer
  • BufferWriter
  • BufferReader
  • WavReader (Buffer)
  • WavWriter (Buffer)
  • WaveForm (Buffer)

Misc

  • WaveForm: returns a spread of floats you can use to draw a WaveForm
  • WavWriter: for recording live audio to a .wav file on disk
  • StereoMixer, MatrixMixer
  • ValueSequence

Fixed issues


So please give the latest preview a spin and report your findings!

Happy new evvvveryone!

It's that time of the year again where we're throwing out the old one and are unconditionally happy for yet another one to come. That's the spirit! So while you mentally prepare for the upcoming meetup on January 25th, you have a chance to rewatch the 15th vvvv online meetup, the last one from 2021.

Last thing in December for us was releasing another dot-release for the 2021.4 series of vvvv gamma. Changes and download for it can be found in the usual place.

And here's to all educators among you:
With vvvv gamma finally being in proper shape, we're starting an educational offensive. First off, we're running a super-spreader event with a course tailored to educators. For full details and application, please see:

When Mon, Jan 31st 2022 - 18:00 until Thu, Mar 24th 2022 - 21:00

Dear educators!

With the all-new vvvv gamma finally having all the necessary bits together for being a serious creative coding environment, we believe it is also a premium tool for education. In case you need to argue:

Reasons to use vvvv in education

  • It is free for educational use without any restrictions
  • It is quick and easy to install, with no copy protection or need for registration
  • It comes with extensive documentation, accessible right from an integrated Help Browser
  • It connects to most popular protocols and devices
  • It allows to teach programming concepts like object oriented programming and dataflow in a visual way
  • While being a visual language, it can easily be extended via C# and the use of .NET Nugets
  • Its libraries are open-source, thus can be inspected and learned from

Becoming a vvvv teacher

If you want to help us spread vvvv by teaching (with) it, we want to make sure you don't feel lost in its universe. "Mastering vvvv for teaching" is an intensive 8 week (16 sessions) live online course with the goal of making you a confident vvvv teacher.

If you're curious, please head over to The NODE Institute for a detailed description of the course a form to apply:

Full details and application: Mastering vvvv for teaching
Application deadline: January 16th, 2022
Course period: January 31st - March 24th
Any questions? Get in touch!

Hope to see you there!
P.S.: If you're interested in such a course but rather for commercial applications than for education, here is a little heads-up: If everything goes according to plan, we'll be running a similar course in summer 2022 with a broader focus.
