Winter Solstice

 Various things for today. 

Lessee. Today is the Winter Solstice. I'm waiting to find out when my PhD thesis gets defended (by me). I'm told it will be next month. Sigh.

This is why we can't have nice things.

AdamMonroeMusic makes VSTi's. 

Cello measurements. I am making an electric cello. I want to put magnetic pickups on it rather than piezo. It's probably just my prejudice against piezos. I'm also going to make it a hard-tail, or at least with a very short bridge-to-tail length. Actually, I think I want to make it "headless" with electric-bass tuners at the bottom.

A weird thing about cellos is that normally the bridge is asymmetrical. Indeed, the radius of the flipping fingerboard is frequently so asymmetrical that the wood beneath the low note (C) is flat rather than radiused. 

Full-Bucket Music makes VSTi plugins. They're based on the iPlug2 framework. Or, at least the iPlug framework.
