"No people ever recognize their dictator in advance. ... When our dictator turns up you can depend on it that he will be one of the boys, and he will stand for everything traditionally American."

Dorothy Thompson, who interviewed Hitler and was the first American journalist expelled from Nazi Germany

The CIA concludes that a hostile foreign power interfered with a U.S. presidential election, but the interference was convenient for Republicans like Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, so they don't want to hear about it.

Syntheogen

Sequencer & synthesizer — Android — C++, Android NDK

Syntheogen™ is a step sequencer and synthesizer I developed for Android phones and tablets:

Syntheogen was mostly written with C++ and the Android NDK. Production builds target Android, but the app also runs on Windows, which I use for development and testing.

The interface was built on a custom GUI framework, and specifically designed to support touchscreen devices. The sequencing and synthesis engines are also custom designs, and the sequencer offers features not found in other music apps: measures can be sized and divided almost arbitrarily, patterns of different length can be mixed in the same loop, and notes can be tied to produce legato phrases of any length.
