A Nepalese district now called 'Upper Mustang' is, without doubt, the origin for the legend of Shangri'La. Previously part of the ancient Kingdom of Lo, it's still much as it was for the last 500 years.

But as the late Stephen Hawking said, we don't know, because our broadcasts to them are so hostile, we've frightened the aliens away.
BEAP modules are Cycling74's way of providing a modular synthesizer. Yofiel's BEAP modules have been integrated into Ableton Live! byMax for Cats, as well as synthesizers byEncode Audio andCompositor Software. Compositor also uses Yofiel's2/4-pole SVF filter in its spectral decoders. This video demos Yofiel's FM/.Sync waveset oscillator. The glitch art generator, following, includes the same BEAP oscillator.
Godel is the first in Yofiel's metamusic series of synthesizer designs. Future instruments will contain subsets and supersets of the Godel controls. This section now describes all of Godel 3's main panel controls in detail, and in the future will be expanded to note which are available in which instrument instance.
This is a top-level view of the Max patch to create the SVF filter gain compensation. It samples 300 SVF filters simultaneiously, reducing the time to complete table completion from 14 days to an hour.
