# Stompolin – Mike Rotondo's Stompolin is a digital instrument created at a Physical Interaction Design workshop at CCRMA.
It is designed to allow the player to create music by involving their whole body, instead of focusing on the hands as many traditional instruments do. My goal was to accurately capture the emotional content of full-body movements, whether gentle or vigorous, and transmit it as music.
# A Visual History Of Loudness – Christopher Clark graphed the peak levels of and RMS levels of three hit songs a year over the past three decades in "A Visual History Of Loudness."
Stiff @ ProToolerBlog has listed a collection of free RTAS plug-ins:
I have compiled a list of all the free RTAS plug-ins I could think of. The list is nowhere near as long as a free VST list would be but nonetheless there are quite a few handy plug-ins here. Needless to say, while this is an RTAS plug-in list, most of them should be available in VST and AU as well.
