BBC Resurrects Early Sound-Effects Machines On The Web

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… No Flash RequiredFor each retro sound-making device, the site has historical information, a live simulator demo and the source code used to create it. The kicker? It was all built without a touch of Flash or anything other than open, cross-device-friendly Web standards. The team at the BBC utilized the Web Audio API, which uses JavaScript to process and synthesize audio in the browser. It’s the kind of thing developers once had no choice but to rely on Flash for, but is now easily achievable using lighter weight, more open technology.  As for the interfaces, those were done using frameworks like backbone.js and jQuery, alongside custom-built elements developed in house at the BBC. Each demo has a detailed technical breakdown showing how it was built. This is awesome. Not just because it gives us fun little browser-based synthesizers to play with, but because of what demos like this mean for the Web. For the last two or three years, developers have been moving away from clunky, proprietary technologies like Flash and Silverlight and, whenever possible, using HTML, CSS and JavaScript to build complex interfaces and embed multimedia. The result is a smoother experience that works across devices and browsers without the need for extra plugins. And yes, simulating old-fashioned gun shots using a graphical UI in the browser while you should be working? That’s cool too.  john paul titlow 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts We take our ability to create sounds for granted. Today’s software and synthesizers allow any teenager to take a sample of any sound, manipulate it any fashion imaginable, forming entirely new sounds. If they so desire, they can create their own album of electronic soundscapes. Today, anybody with even minimal training can be a sound producer, DJ or radio host. We’ve come a long way. Back in 1958, though, sound was not so easy to create and play with. But the then relatively young medium of radio demanded sound effects like gunshots and new music for a growing line-up of audio programs. To meet the needs of show producers, the BBC launched the Radiophonic Workshop, a sound effects lab where musicians and sound engineers created fake gun shots by slapping rulers on a table, used analog tape loops and built pre-synthesizer sound effects machines. Interactive, Web-based simulations of those early machines are now available, thanks to the BBC’s Research & Development Department, which recently launched a fascinating prototype showcasing four digital noisemakers. The fun site features a gun-shot sound effect generator, a pre-synthesizer “wobbulator,” a trio of tape loop machines and an early ring modulator, which was used to generate the robot voice on the original Dr. Who. 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Tags:#audio#BBC#sound#web standards last_img read more

Odisha asks banks to improve cash availability in cyclone affected areas

first_imgOdisha government has asked banks to improve cash availability to enable people in cyclone-affected districts to buy essential items.“Mobile ATMs have been sent to Puri by the State Cooperative Bank and SBI. Now seven mobile ATMs are functioning in Puri,” said Chief Secretary A. P. Padhi, after chairing a Special State Level Bankers Committee meeting here on Friday. “SBI will send 10 more ATMs. Cash availability is not a problem in the State.” Digital payment and cash withdrawal from ATMs were affected as power had not been restored in many areas ever since cyclone Fani hit Odisha on May 3. People were seen standing in long queues in front of the rare functional ATM counters in Bhubaneswar. Unavailability of cash had forced students to go back to their villages. Wage payment to daily labourers was affected.The Odisha government’s decision to hand out ₹2000 in cash as part of the Chief Minister’s package has proved to be of great help.The special State Level Banker’s Committee discussed the measures banks and insurance companies must take in cyclone affected areas. The SLBC resolved that existing loans would be rescheduled and fresh loans would be extended.“The loans may be rescheduled keeping in view the lower cash flow to SHGs and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. Bankers would provide all assistance to bail out the tourism industry in Puri. Insurance companies would also relax the document requirements, simplify the process and expedite payment of claims,” it was resolved in the SLBC. The Chief Secretary urged the banks to operationalise all their branches in Puri by Monday. Banking has been largely unaffected in all affected districts except Puri.last_img read more
