Melodyne software demo

Posted by Martin Poulter on 30 April 2003

This is one of the moments when you realise how far technology has come (or had come in Nov’01). Listen to the sounds at the bottom of this page: when you record a voice and speed it up to raise the pitch, you get the “munchkin” effect, yet this software is changing the pitch of notes from raw audio, preserving the natural sound and getting the note transitions right. Surely a creative lease of life if you can only sing one note (*cough* Dan).

It’s just a shame they don’t show their working out

PS. this is reasonably safe (for work or elsewhere), unless mention of rude bits or bodily secretions offends you, or the simple thought of the act itself fills you with a cold cold dread. In which case, maybe you need help…

Is there anyone more annoying than Mick Hucknall?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 25 April 2003

This is a question I’ve often asked myself…. Completely by chance a Google search turned up a page entitled “Is Henrik Larsson More Annoying Than Mick Hucknall?” and everything spiraled from there. (archived link on archive.org) Enjoy.

PuppetTool

This is one of the most strange, wonderful and slightly frightening things I’ve seen on the net. Choose a creature, alter its proportions and choose or create a repetitive animated movement. It is programmed to a worryingly professional standard. Why? Why? WHY?

Discus, garage-wall tennis and lots of other simple but addictive sporty things that require no exercise but mere respiration and mouse clicking. Via The Friday Thing.

Cheese Racing

Posted by Martin Poulter on 4 April 2003

Some time ago I mentioned the white-knuckle sport that is Cheese Racing. I think this site was sent to me by Ian originally but it’s clearly an Olympic exhibition sport of the future:
