@kirby Yup, I also remember waiting hours for 20 megs to download on dial up. And then just the incredible instability of our previous connection. This is just insane. And that in my no name place of the world.
Anyways... I'm done now. I hate big tech just as much as the next, but seriously. Thanks to all those engineers that put in time to make this work. You're saving my life.
They could just as easily not care. Do what Sublime Text or Atom does and literally just not work at all, or do what the Jetbrains IDE's do and work somewhat yet with many issues, all of which reported numerous times, without any resolution in sight. Sadly it doesn't look that much better on Linux. Screen readers in the terminal have issues which can be worked around, but ironically make a command line app less efficient than an electron code editor. How sad.
Thanks for making my life as a professional blind app/web dev easier. Thanks for even making things like the visual designer in Visual Studio work somewhat. And thanks to the people writing screen readers and addons and accessibility fixes like NVDA+addons to allow me to make a living writing computer programs. To allow me to learn about these things at least somewhat close to how someone without my disability would. There's no way I'm taking that for granted.
So even though I might piss a few people off with this, I'm really glad that they at least give two shits. For now, anyway.
You know, there are many reasons to hate Microsoft, all of them valid - but they do care about accessibility. Much more than they used to. It's because of them that we can enjoy modern IDE features like full auto completion, parameter hints, code navigation. I'm so, so happy that things like VS Code and Visual Studio exist. Without them I am not sure where I would be. Nothing else does this accessibly at least to screen readers.
@Mayana I love MyNoise. Also you're welcome :) I was thinking of setting up an account only for random recordings like that.
@adamthomasmusic It does! It even has some extra features like, for example, running your plugins in a separate process. That way, if a plugin dies, it doesn't take the entire DAW with it. It also has bridging support built in, letting you run 32 bit plugins in the 64 bit DAW. And a lot of other small nifty features like a built in LFO that you can apply to any automatable parameter of any effect, for example.
That said, for some reason, this H2N has some light static in the background that disappears for a few seconds every once in a while, then comes back, while using the internal microphones. That... is very unfortunate.
@adamthomasmusic I personally am a huge fan of Reaper. Lightweight, very fast, very scriptable and extensible, very affordable. Downside is it doesn't come with too many plugins out of the box, so you'll really want to provide your own. The ones it does come with aren't bad at all, but it's not a lot and really just effects, not instruments.
Aha! The good old trick of just... nuking the audio driver completely and rebooting a couple of times, like 3 or 4 times or so, works. Windows is magical! ha...haha...hahaha...hahahasldkjfhaslkdfjasljkdf
Work laptop had Bang & Oluffsen garbage software to do some crappy noise reduction (on the output! not the mic!) while on a voip call. Naturally I tried removing it because, well, who wants that? Now it's stuck doing the noise reduction on the output forever. Ever since I've been frantically trying to reinstall that god damned thing. Ugh! I don't get it! Whyyyyyyyyy!
