Everything You Should Know About Picking Your Film’s Color Schemes

Let's explore one of the core issues of a film’s cinematography — color scheme. A film's color scheme sets the tone, emotion, and complexity of the film.

Modélisation d’une araignée sauteuse : un tutoriel et des références pour vos arachnides

Par : Shadows

Gnomon Workshop a lancé un nouveau tutoriel détaillé consacré à la modélisation et au rendu d’une araignée sauteuse, avec environ 9h de vidéo et un projet réalisé sous ZBrush, Substance Painter, Redshift, Maya et Yeti.

Les Salticidae ou araignées sauteuses sont une famille d’araignées regroupant environ 5000 espèces. Généralement assez petites, une de leurs caractéristiques est leur capacité d’effectuer des sauts pour capturer leurs proies, d’où leur nom. Leur paire d’yeux principale à l’avant de la tête et leurs couleurs très diverses selon l’espèce en font notamment un sujet de choix pour les amateurs de photo macro.

Payant, le tutoriel nécessite un abonnement à Gnomon Workshop.

Pour aller plus loin et appliquer ce tutoriel sur d’autres araignées, nous ne saurions trop vous recommander de faire un tour chez le photographe Thomas Shahan, qui prend régulièrement en photo des araignées sauteuses et pourra vous donner des idées de composition, espèces, éclairage. En complément, sa chaîne Youtube sera aussi une bonne ressource, d’autant qu’on y trouve des araignées sauteuses dans leur milieu naturel : si vous comptez animer ces charmantes créatures, ses vidéos seront donc d’une grande aide.

Récupérer des enregistrements quand QuickTime a planté

Petite astuce qui peut aider avec QuickTime si vous enregistrez directement avec le logiciel d’Apple. Par défaut, QuickTime Player va garder votre enregistrement dans un dossier et si par mégarde vous fermez QuickTime violemment (sans sauver), avec un peu de chance l’enregistrement est encore là. J’avais vu cette astuce chez Korben, mais il y a quelques subtilité en plus.

C’est assez facile à reproduire : lancez une enregistrement, et fermez QuickTime sans sauver ou arrêter (un clic droit sur l’icône dans le Dock en pressant option, par exemple). Et bien l’enregistrement est encore présent. Il se trouve dans ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX/Data/Library/Autosave\ Information/. Vous pouvez utiliser le Finder pour y aller : Aller -> Aller au dossier. Il se nomme Document QuickTime Player non enregistré et – attention – il disparaîtra si vous relancez QuickTime. Il faut donc le récupérer avant de relancer QuickTime.

Maintenant que vous avez le fichier, je vous conseille de le copier directement à un autre endroit et de travailler sur une copie. Et QuickTime ne voudra sûrement pas l’ouvrir.

Ensuite, il faut extraire le contenu. Un clic secondaire sur le fichier, Afficher le contenu du paquet. Il y a quatre cas possible avec QuickTime, en fonction de vos choix. De la vidéo en qualité élevée (en H.264), de la vidéo en qualité maximale (en ProRES, compliqué à récupérer), de l’audio en qualité élevée (compression AAC) et de l’audio en qualité maximale (sans compression).

La vidéo

Commençons par de la vidéo. Vous aurez un fichier .mov. Première solution, tenter avec VLC ou un autre lecteur. Si vous n’avez pas peur d’envoyer vos données en ligne, le site mp4repair.org peut fonctionner, même s’il n’aime visiblement la version en qualité maximale et qu’il est payant.

C’est cher

Si ça ne fonctionne pas (probable), il y a untrunc. Ça devrait fonctionner sous Linux, mais impossible de le compiler sous macOS, malheureusement. La version reloue passe par Docker et ce n’est pas grand public. Si vous avez peur de la ligne de commande, abandonnez.

Il faut installer Docker depuis le site.
Ensuite cloner untrunc (git clone https://github.com/anthwlock/untrunc).
Enfin, le lancer dans un container : docker build -t untrunc .

Attention, c’est un peu compliqué. Premièrement, il faut une vidéo qui fonctionne (enregistrée de la même façon, en gros), nous allons l’appeler video1.mov.
La vidéo qui ne fonctionne pas, elle, nous allons l’appeler video2.mov.
Les deux vidéos doivent être dans le dossier Téléchargements.
Voici la ligne de commande qui devrait essayer de récupérer le tout.

docker run -v ~/Downloads/:/mnt untrunc /mnt/video1.mov /mnt/video2.mov

Le fichier en sortie se nomme video2.mov_fixed. Je vous dit tout de suite, ça fonctionne assez mal. Dans le cas d’une vidéo en qualité élevée (H.264), ça fonctionne plus ou moins. Dans le cas d’une vidéo en qualité maximale (ProRes), ça ne marche tout simplement pas.

L’audio

Avec de l’audio, vous aurez un .aifc, si vous enregistrez en qualité maximum. La récupération est normalement assez simple. Avec Audacity, faites Fichier -> Importer -> Données brutes. Les réglages : 16 bits PCM, Gros Boutiste, stéréo, 44100. Normalement, il va récupérer l’audio.

Avec Audacity

Si vous avez un .m4a, vous avez enregistré en qualité élevée, et c’est déjà compressé. La méthode de Korben fonctionne. Il faut donc effacer les zéros en début de fichier, et ensuite convertir le fichier avec faad. Pour l’installer, il y a brew : brew install faad2. Ensuite, il suffit de taper faad nom_du_fichier, ça va le convertir en .wav.

Dans tous les cas, ce sont des solutions de la dernière chance et ça risque de ne pas fonctionner. Mais parfois, ça peut aider.

Sony Introduces ZV-1 Compact Camera For Vlogging

Sony’s new ZV-1 compact camera for vloggers

Today, Sony introduces the Sony ZV-1 compact camera, which looks rather like a modified RX-100 series style camera. However, aside from the sensor and processor, which is, in fact, borrowed from the Cyber-shot RX-100 Mark VII advance compact camera, Sony says much of the new ZV-1 has been re-designed for content creators shooting video for social media sites, particularly YouTube. It’s why Sony is considering it the first of a totally new product line, and not just a new camera.

According to those at Sony, the new easy-to-use video-focused compact camera attempts to fill a gap in the imaging industry for this type of video creator, since the current video tools in the marketplace are not meeting many of the needs of this type of content creator, particularly vloggers who are producing lots of video on a daily basis.

The Sony ZV-1 compact camera (top view)
The Sony ZV-1 compact camera (back view)

 

Here are some of the important specs on the new Sony camera:

  • Like recent RX-100 series cameras, the ZV-1 features a 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and a 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T large-aperture lens.
  • The ZV-1 also includes the latest-generation BIONZ X image processor with front-end LSI delivering high resolution as well as low noise for superior image quality.
  • Another standout feature is that the ZV-1 is Sony’s first compact camera with a side-opening Vari-angle, or swiveling touchscreen LCD screen, making it easier to compose your shots in selfie mode while connecting external audio accessories.
  • And Sony says that in order to meet any video need, the ZV-1 contains advanced video features including 4K movie recording and in-body image stabilization.

Learn more about the Sony ZV-1 at B&H.


 

Standout Features

Part of the reason Sony said it needed to come out with such an advanced compact camera is that many of those using other compact cameras for social media have found they often miss the focus, produce dim or dull colors, have issue with image stabilization, capture poor-quality audio and have confusing and difficult settings. So, for much of the recent press briefing, Sony attempted to demonstrate how the ZV-1 could meet the needs of YouTube-type content creators. Some of the action points included the ability to simplify focus and improve color, offer high quality audio and produce a camera design that was optimized for video creators. Plus, Sony said they needed to include “class-leading video features.

The Sony ZV-1 will have a number of additional advanced video features, including advanced autofocusing features. Sony says it’s a fast hybrid AF system, which uses both phase- and contrast-detection technology to autofocus accurately. Other features include Real-Time AF tracking and Real-Time Eye AF in movie mode.

Another impressive feature is that the ZV-1 has a product showcase setting. When using this feature, the camera will move from focusing on a subject’s face to focusing on an object, which is a very useful feature for YouTube. 

Sony has also made some conspicuous changes to various buttons and controls. For example, the video record button is now quite large. Also, in addition to the flipout LCD, there is also a front-facing record light, to let you know you’re recording, and an easy to hold grip. And because this model is focused on video, Sony has removed some features on the RX100 Mk VII that are more still-photography-centric: The new ZV-1 lacks a popup viewfinder, popup flash and a control ring.

Last but not least, Sony says this model will offer much better audio quality than you’ll often find in compact cameras with its new onboard mic, which features Sony’s latest Directional 3-capsule Mic that was designed for forward-directional audio capture, “allowing for clear capture of the subject’s voice while minimizing background noise, especially when operating in selfie mode.” And for added flexibility, the ZV-1 also features an industry standard mic jack (3.5mm) and Multi Interface Shoe (MI shoe), making it easy to connect a wide range of external microphones. You also get a wind-screen accessory that fits on the MI shoe to minimize wind interference.

Pricing and Availability

The new ZV-1, which you can begin ordering today, will be available in stores June 11 for $799. And from now until June 28, the camera will be $50 off and sell for $749. Sony will also be selling a special ACCVC1 Vlogger Kit for $149, but will be available in June 2020 with a special introductory offer of $50 off when purchased together with ZV-1 (at participating retailers) through June 28, 2020 in U.S.

Sony Electronics Introduces the Digital Camera ZV-1, A Newly Designed Camera for Video Content Creators

New Video-Forward Design and Compact Body Packed with Advanced Imaging Technology and Easy-to-Use Functionality

 

SAN DIEGO – May 26, 2020 –Sony Electronics Inc. today has announced the new pocket-sized digital camera ZV-1 (hereafter referred as “ZV-1”) – a lightweight, compact “all-in-one” style solution. Designed from the ground up for content creators and vloggers, the ZV-1 combines easy-to-use features with uncompromising imaging technology, making this the perfect tool for any content creator at all skill levels.

 

“Sony’s new ZV-1 was purpose-built to meet the needs and demands of today’s video creators,” said Neal Manowitz, deputy president of Imaging Product and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics.  “We are always listening to our customers, and this camera is the result of direct feedback from our extended community.  Featuring an innovative design plus many new technologies, settings and modes, it will allow creators to make content in ways they have never been able to before.”

 

The ZV-1 features a 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS® CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and 24-70mm[i] F1.8-2.8 ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* large-aperture lens creating beautiful background bokeh (background blur), allowing the subject to stand out from the background. The camera locks on to and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed using Sony’s leading-edge autofocus system. The ZV-1 also includes the latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor with front-end LSI delivering high resolution as well as low noise for superior image quality. It also combines this exceptional imaging technology with high-quality and versatile audio options. The ZV-1 is Sony’s first compact camera with a side-opening Vari-angle LCD screen, making it easier to compose your shots in selfie mode while connecting external audio accessories. To meet any video need, the ZV-1 contains advanced video features including 4K movie recording[ii] and in-body image stabilization.

Meeting the Needs of Today’s Content Creators

Quickly Switch Between two modes of Background Bokeh

The ZV-1 offers a simple solution to easily switch between two levels of background bokeh while recording. Using the new Background Defocus function, users can rapidly adjust the optical aperture between more and less background defocusing blur without losing focus on the subject. Located on top of the camera, this Bokeh button is easily accessible and makes selfie shooting operation a breeze.

Focus on the Subject You Want

The ZV-1 makes it easier than ever to shoot product reviews and similar video content. Gone are the days of placing a hand behind an object to prompt the camera to bring it into focus thanks to a new Product Showcase Setting, which allows for quick and smooth focus transitions between the subject’s face and the object placed in front of the lens.

Building on the leading-edge technology developed for α™ (Alpha brand) and RX series cameras, this new compact camera includes advanced autofocus (AF) allowing it to lock on and track subjects with high accuracy and speed while recording. For maintaining focus on the intended subject or subjects in busy environments, Real-time Eye AF[iii] and Real-time Tracking AF for video allows the ZV-1 to seamlessly switch focus between multiple subjects while controlling the AF speed and tracking sensitivity.

Prioritize Your Face

Extreme changes in lighting, like walking outside on a sunny day and suddenly moving from a bright location into shade, are no problem for the ZV-1 thanks to the new Face Priority autoexposure (AE) function. It detects and prioritizes the subject’s face and adjusts the exposure to ensure the face is depicted at an ideal brightness in any environment.  This AE technology also suppresses an abrupt change in exposure if the subject quickly turns away from the frame to eliminate unexpected blown-out or extremely dark shots. In addition, the camera features a new advanced color science that has been re-engineered to optimize skin tones for any subject in both still and video modes. 

Crystal Clear Audio

High quality content requires clear, excellent audio quality, and the ZV-1 is well-equipped to produce just that with reliable and versatile audio options. The ZV-1’s onboard mic features Sony’s latest Directional 3-capsule Mic which was designed for forward-directional audio capture, allowing for clear capture of the subject’s voice while minimizing background noise, especially when operating in selfie mode. For added flexibility, the ZV-1 also features an industry standard mic jack (3.5mm) and Multi Interface Shoe™ (MI shoe) making it easy to connect a wide range of external microphones. The ZV-1 is also supplied with a wind screen[iv] accessory that fits on the MI shoe to minimize wind interference.

Design and Functionality Optimized for Vlogging

The ZV-1 was designed with content creators and vloggers in mind. This compact, lightweight (approx. 294g / 105.5mm x 60.0mm x 43.5mm) camera is the first Sony compact camera with a flip-out, tiltable LCD Screen, allowing creators to simplify their setup by utilizing the MI shoe for optional external mics without the need of an additional mounting bracket.

Comfortably operate the ZV-1 with one hand thanks to the easy-to-hold comfortable grip and a large movie REC button located on the top of the camera for quick access to video recording, as well as a recording lamp on the front of the camera that indicates if the camera is actively recording.

The ZV-1 also includes advances in image stabilization, ensuring steady video even when shooting hand-held while walking. When recording in HD (Active mode), optical and electronic stabilization methods are combined to reduce shaking up to 11 times[v] that of standard SteadyShot™ image stabilization. When shooting 4K video using Optical SteadyShot (Active mode), there is improvement in stabilization effect of up to 8 times[vi] that of standard SteadyShot. The ZV-1 is also compatible with the GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip with Wireless Remote Commander, offering additional stability and comfort combined with cable-free Bluetooth® connectivity.

 Class-Leading AV Features

Despite the small form factor there are a multitude of pro-level movie making capabilities, including:

  • 4K movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in high bit rate XAVC S™ codec. [vii]
  • Industry standard 3.5mm microphone input
  • Hybrid Log-Gamma (HDR) [viii] / S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3 / S-Log3
  • Interval Shooting[ix] for stunning time-lapse videos[x]
  • Super Slow Motion[xi] recording at up to 960fps[xii]
  • Compatibility with ‘Movie Edit add-on[xiii]’ from the “Imaging Edge™” mobile application for image stabilization while editing[xiv] Highlight ability to edit aspect ratios for IG etc.

Live Streaming with the ZV-1

Transform the ZV-1 into a webcam by connecting it to a PC[xv] via USB, which allows content creators to interact with their followers in real-time while also utilizing the advanced imaging technology and unique features of the ZV-1. Sony’s new PC software will be available in July 2020.

New Vlogger Accessories Kit

Sony will also be introducing a Vlogger Kit (ACCVC1), which includes a GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip with Wireless Remote Commander and 64GB Ultra High Speed Media Card.  The grip is compatible with a variety of Sony cameras[xvi].

Pair this kit with an external microphone (sold separately), such as Sony’s Stereo Microphone (ECM-XYST1M), for a convenient and simple vlogging setup.

Pricing and Availability

The Digital Camera ZV-1 will be available in June 2020 for a special introductory price of approximately $749 USD through June 28, 2020. After that, the price will increase to approximately $799 USD. The ACCVC1 Vlogger Kit will be available in June 2020 with a special introductory offer of $50 off when purchased together with ZV-1 (at participating retailers) through June 28, 2020 in U.S. and June 25, 2020 in Canada, and can be purchased separately for approximately $149 USD .

iQUT 2Pro, un casque VR autonome 4K 6 DOF à 510 € venu de Chine

Par : Sitraka R
casque vr autonome 4K iQUT 2Pro

Un an après la sortie de son premier casque VR autonome 4K, la plateforme de streaming vidéo chinoise iQiyi dévoile une seconde génération baptisée iQUT 2Pro qui promet des améliorations considérables.

Comme son prédécesseur, ce nouveau modèle affiche également une résolution 4K, mais passe de 3 degrés de liberté (DOF) à 6, à l’instar de l’Oculus Quest. Pour ce faire, iQiyi a fait appel à HTC qui a prêté la technologie de tracking de son Vive Focus ainsi que les contrôleurs de ce dernier.

Du côté de son processeur, l’iQUT 2Pro dispose d’un Snapdragon 835. Avec la même puce que l’Oculus Quest, il pourra permettre une utilisation plus orientée gaming par rapport au modèle précédent. Et comme il tourne sous Vive Wave, le streaming de contenu PCVR est possible.

Dans un tweet, le président de la branche chinoise de HTC affirme que l’iQUT 2Pro n’est que le premier de nombreux casques VR à venir qui tourneront sous Vive Wave. En tout cas, on connaît déjà le prix de cette première. En effet, l’appareil est vendu 3999 yuans en Chine, soit environ 510 euros.

A quand un casque VR autonome 4K comme l’iQUT 2Pro en Europe ?

Néanmoins, ne vous attendez pas à retrouver de sitôt ce modèle sur le marché européen. Comme les précédents produits estampillés iQiyi, il devrait demeurer exclusif aux Chinois. Cela dit, il n’en reste pas moins un signe que d’autres fabricants pourraient un jour proposer un casque VR autonome avec une résolution 4K dans nos contrées.

Peut-être que ce sera le cas du futur Oculus Quest en préparation chez Facebook ? Mais les dernières rumeurs font majoritairement état d’une modification du design pour plus de confort. En ce qui concerne l’écran, on parle plus d’une amélioration de la fréquence de rafraîchissement que de la résolution.

Le tweet du dirigeant de HTC pourrait bien indiquer que la marque sera la première à le faire. Si cela reste du domaine des spéculations, la société pourrait user de son partenariat avec iQiyi pour créer un casque VR autonome avec l’écran 4K de l’iQUT 2Pro.

BODY (UN)MUTE: 28–29 May 2020 ONLINE


ONLINE, 28 – 29 May 2020

BODY (UN)MUTE: A two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing.

As we slide into the new normal or la nueva normalidad it is inevitable that the AV world will experience a considerable amount of visibility during the pandemic as technology plays an important part in everything that we do. A surge of online events, meetings and live streams now fill up our diaries like they are going out of fashion and meeting up with your mates down the pub for a pint after work is so 2019.

Enter the evolution of user generated entertainment platforms like Twitch, which now boasts 17.5 million average daily visitors. Resident Advisor has invented its own virtual island Streamland where all virtual events that have been successfully submitted to RA exist. And MelodyVR brings the artist even closer to the fan through some very high spec virtual reality streaming experiences. Did somebody say Zoom quiz? 

The drive for innovation and exploration in the world of audio visual art and culture is again on the rise, opening up in new forms. Which leads me onto the question about interdisciplinary artists and institutions who challenge the status quo and dare to oppose the mainstream. Where are they and what is their artistic response to the pandemic? 

I give you BODY (UN)MUTE. A two-day online festival curated by Bogomir Doringer hosted by ICA Dans Amsterdam that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. The audiovisual event l will deliver a programme of workshops, talks and performances from all corners of new media, dance and conceptual art. But how can these rituals take place in an online space?

Photo courtest of BODY (UN)MUTE: Ania Nowak_performance: To the Aching Parts!

“Technology has been around forever, but most people are not familiar with the basics of streaming. Porn channels and video gaming platforms are way ahead of time and up until now artists haven’t really engaged with it, which makes it harder to get a certain quality that produces something more than just a Zoom call. That’s why I want to explore this space with new media artists”

– Bogomir Doringer

Some highlights come in the form of Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey who wants you to join his Augmented Reality Makeover Party where step-by-step you can learn how to perfect your own Augmented Reality (AR) digital mask and alter ego. Transgress and queer-up your identity, become a drag unicorn or whatever else you can imagine!

Jeremy Bailey: Augmented Reality Makeover Party

Rosa Menkman, an art theorist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory, delivers a talk followed by a screening of her work Pique Nique pour les Inconnues :: The CHORUS VERSION (2019-2020). The video looks at various unknown women whose images are linked to the history of image processing. While these women seem to be able to prolong their existence for as long as the (digital) realms will copy and reuse them, most of them have lost their name and identity.

Live performance comes in the form of Keren Rosenberg and Nicola Cavalazzi acting out a dialogue between Amsterdam and London. An audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self-exposure through the use of modern technology. Together they will question what it means to perform in front of a camera – where does the body finish and the screen start? 

Photo courtest of BODY (UN)MUTE: Keren Rosenberg performing Emotional Porn – Exhibition of the Self

Dr. Kelina Gotman talks about how Choreomania, the manic crave for dance, is not just a bi-product of lockdown. Choreographer Emio Greco will elaborate on the Pizzica, a dance from his native ground in Puglia that was danced to heal yourself from the bite of a poisonous spider. And Shanghai Radio will close the two day event giving us an insight into how creativity, music and online streaming kept the Chinese creative community connected during the lockdown. 

In a reaction to the pandemic tickets for the event are based on the principles of donation, which provides the public freedom to support the hard work and dedication from all the artists involved.

Let the body unmute.

Un « pilote » pour un caisson de basse sous macOS

En triant chez moi, j’ai « retrouvé » deux produits, l’iSub et le BassJump. Et je me suis souvenu qu’il y a longtemps, j’avais vu un exemple de code Apple qui perlettait de gérer un caisson de basse sous Mac OS X. L’occasion de jouer un peu.

Au départ, je voualis juste voir s’il était possible de faire fonctionner un iSub avec un macOS récent, vu qu’Apple a supprimé les pilotes il y a longtemps. Mais ce n’est pas possible : l’iSub n’est pas reconnu par défaut comme une interface audio en USB, et les pilotes Apple devaient sûrement l’activer manuellement, comme pour les enceintes du Power Mac G4 Cube. Du coup, j’ai tenté avec le BassJump.

L’iSub


Le BassJump

Le BassJump, c’est un caisson de basse USB qui fonctionne comme une interface audio basique. Sans pilotes, on peut rediriger le son vers lui, mais le résultat est évidemment assez mauvais : il est prévu pour reproduire les basses et lui envoyer de l’audio « complet » donne un résultat affreux. C’est là qu’intervient le vieux code d’Apple.

C’est un pilote qui propose un filtrage passe-bas sur un périphérique audio. C’est assez basique, c’est vraiment un exemple de ce qu’il est possible de faire avec Core Audio, mais c’est assez efficace. Une fois le programme téléchargé, il faut modifier le projet pour le compiler en 64 bits uniquement sous macOS Catalina (ça marche aussi avec d’anciens OS en 32 bits, d’ailleurs).

Dans le code, il faut modifier deux choses. Dans Info.plist, il faut indiquer le vendor ID et le product ID de l’appareil, en codage décimal. Ce sont les identifiants USB de l’appareil, qu’on peut récupérer dans les Informations Système. Pour le BassJump, c’est 0x08DC pour le vendor ID, 0x013a pour le product. Avec la calculatrice de macOS, on peut convertir en décimal rapidement : on se met en présentation programmeur, on choisit la base (16), on tape la valeur, on choisit la base 10. Pour le BassJump, ça donne 3468 et 314.


Dans SampleUSBAudioPlugin.cpp, il faut mettre les valeurs en hexadécimales.

Une fois le pilote compilé, je l’ai installé sur mon vieux MacBook Air, avec le BassJump connecté… sans résultats (un coup de KextUtility ou équivalent peut aider pour charger le pilote). Après avoir cherché un peu, j’ai trouvé : le code d’Apple ne fonctionne qu’en 44 kHz. C’est flagrant après avoir changé la valeur dans Configuration audio et MIDI : en 48 kHz (par défaut), le son est complet, en 44 kHz, le filtre passe-bas fonctionne.

Il faur forcer le 44 kHz (ou modifier le pilote)

Petite astuce, si vous voulez utiliser le caisson (et son filtre passe-bas) en même temps que les enceintes du Mac (ou d’autres enceintes) : il faut créer un périphérique à sortie multiple dans Configuration audio et MIDI. On peut sélectionner les sorties disponibles, et la lecture sur cette interface audio virtuelle sort sur les deux appareils. Cette solution a le défaut d’empêcher le réglage du volume dans les options de macOS, mais ça fonctionne.


Tout ça pour dire qu’en moins d’une heure, j’ai fait un truc basique mais fonctionnel pour profiter du BassJump… alors que la société nous a baladé avec des pilotes moisis pendant des années. Ca nécessite évidemment quelques ajustement pour la fréquence d’échantillonage et je suppose qu’il y a des modifications pour permettre de contrôler le volume, mais c’est fonctionnel de cette façon, au moins de manière basique.
