The newest is the Microssoft Go, currently available only on preorder, at $399/$549 in 4GB+64GB/8GB+128GB DRAM+SD configs with Intel's Kaby Lake (dual hyperthreaded P4 core with 2MB shared first-level instruction/cache). Higher performance models should be available by year's end that improve on the basic single-threaded, shared DRAM for video and main memory.

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.

The Maoist government in Nepal has promised roads, hospitals, and other benefits of modern civilization to a district called 'Upper Mustang'–Without doubt, the origin for the legend of Shangri'La. Previously part of the ancient Kingdom of Lo, it's remained much as it was since its walled capital was first built in the 14th Century. Its citizens are long accustomed to total isolation. Perhaps for the first time in history, the recent transition of this kingdom to communism was totally peaceful. But how much of its culture will survive the political evolution?
