Open Source Contributions
- LMMS (2017): LMMS stands for Linux MultiMedia Studio. It is a cross-platfom
digital audio workstation (DAW) for making electronic music. For LMMS, I
implemented a Sean Costello reverberator as a native LMMS plugin. I also have
made efforts to simplify the audio plugin development process for native
- AudioKit (2015-Present): AudioKit is an iOS audio framework for synthesis and
analysis. For AudioKit, I ported Soundpipe/Sporth to AudioKit, and helped to port
STK plugins directly to AudioKit
- Csound (2015): Csound is one of the oldest musical programming languages
still active to this day. I implemented the Paulstretch opcode,
based on the the extreme time stretching tool by Paul Nasca Octavian.
- Faust (2014): FAUST is a function language for audio DSP that transpiles
to C, C++, ASM.js, and others. It is capable of writing to several standard plugin
formats, including VST, AU, LV2, LADSPA. I updated the faust2csound script
and architecture file for Csound 6.0, which targets Csound opcodes.
- Qubit Electronics (2012): Assisted in the firmware development for
the Qubit Nebulae: a Raspberry Pi and Csound Powered Model. I also did
contract work and helped them build templates for PD.
