#Photography: Tutorial: How to Remove the Staccato Effect from Timelapse Photography

Any photographer who’s ever taken on the challenge of creating a timelapse video is all too familiar with the flickering, staggered staccato effect. Caused by shutter speeds that are too quick to properly capture the motion in between frames, the illusion of jumping or skipping can take the realism out of even the most extraordinary scenes.
Of course, the easiest way of avoiding this issue would be to slow down the shutter speed. This could be done by applying a neutral density filter to a lens or by closing down the camera’s aperture. However, there will always be situations where these precautions either aren’t possible or aren’t enough to cut down on staccato.

#Musicproduction: NUSofting releases "Bit Fluzer Free" Freeware Audio Effect Plug-in (VST Win) #freedownload

NUSofting has released Bit Fluzer Free 0.9.0, currently as Windows VST 64-bit/32-bit, Mac versions will be released later.
Bit Fluzer is an audio effect similar to standard "bit crushers", but featuring two channels with input filters and audio bit reductions modulated by two LFOs.
Using the Bit Fluzer plugin you can alter the bit depth of the audio signal from your instrument or audio tracks in your DAW in various ways. The two bit depth controls range from one to 20 bits in continuous fashion, moreover the bit depth can be made to rhythmically oscillate with the LFOs. That way you can obtain a range of mono or stereo modulating effects: from subtle "sound warming", due to the soft noise introduced by a little bit depth reduction, to more aggressive distortions and groovy patterns.

    dance & trance

    Am Freitag, 5.Mai 2017 hat Hannes Zellhofer das neueste Projekt von Distance Project veröffentlicht: dance & trance
    "DANCE & TRANCE" ist eine sechzigminütige Trance-Produktion des Wiener Musikproduktion Hannes Zellhofer (aka DISTANCE PROJECT). Nachdem er unzählige Trancemischungen gehört hatte, entschloss er sich 2016, selbst zu produzieren.

    Da es ihm wichtig war, seine eigenen Sounds für das Set zu einzusetzen, nutzte er nicht vorhandenes Material, sondern schuf Ungewöhnliches bei unzähligen Aufnahmesitzungen. Seine Arbeit wurde durch gelegentliche Stimmpassagen der Sängerin Betti Stewart ergänzt. Das Ergebnis ist eine Mischung aus instrumentalem und vokalem Trance, die mit ihren vielen melodischen Passagen zum Träumen verführt und trotzdem mit 138 BPM Drive bietet. Das Set wird mit Macbook, Wave Sampler und mikroKORG gespielt.
