muCommander is a cross-platform file manager. It has it’s own file editor/viewer but if you want to use your favourite one, there is a chance. I prefer to use macvim on Mac and as preview action I like what Finder does, so see what you need to add to ~/Library/Preferences/muCommander/preferences.xml file.
(You can start by installing Windows package manager chocolatey)
GVim – Not exactly a debug tool, but you need to read logs somewhere right? I assume I don’t need to explain vim. (btw :%!xxd turns vim into a hex editor)
WSL – I prefer to use unix-like tools, when switching development platforms this prooved to be an effective workflow (I can use the same tools on Mac, Win and Linux). I used babun before it got deprecated. But Windows supports running Ubuntu directly in Windows. Try this if you run into a problem during installation as I did. Or this or that if you will face a permission issue.
Depenency Walker – an app is not starting or a dll is not loading? Maybe some dll is missing. “Dependency Walker is a free utility that scans any 32-bit or 64-bit Windows module (exe, dll, ocx, sys, etc.) and builds a hierarchical tree diagram of all dependent modules. For each module found, it lists all the functions that are exported by that module, and which of those functions are actually being called by other modules. Another view displays the minimum set of required files, along with detailed information about each file including a full path to the file, base address, version numbers, machine type, debug information, and more.”
Spitfire Audio and HBO joint a couple weeks ago and offered this amazing opportunity to rescore a scene from Westworld TV Show. I took a part in this and is my version of the scene. If you want to know more about the winner and kind of interesting situation that happened after the announcement, see the rest of this post.
Everybody likes free plugins and everybody seems to like to write about them or make youtube videos about them. Well, I am not an exception! Here is my list of currently most used free plugins! These are not so well known IMHO, so be inspired!
PreSonus has released a new version of their software flagship called Studio One. And after seeing these videos I am pretty excited about it. Rethinked arranger track for easier creating variations, or multiinstruments track or enhanced chains – you can use splitter to use your favourite compressor as multiband compressor or de-esser. Well done, PreSonus!
