22:00 pikurasa Hi, this is Devin. Mainly working on Music Blocks
22:00 Quozl g'day.
22:00 pikurasa hi Quozl
22:01 (and maybe fatigued of typing, so forgive any shorthand)
22:01 Quozl heh.
22:03 this week i worked on testing new WebKit GTK+ with Browse, looking for source code changes for the Find Words 3.1 activity, released the Music Keyboard 11 activity, and tested Music Blocks embedded in Browse on Ubuntu 16.04.
22:04 pikurasa Quozl: Thanks for trying out Music Blocks (MB)
22:05 As for what I did...
22:05 Quozl pikurasa: as a choral and piano musician, i'm very sensitive to rhythm timing; sometimes i noticed that Music Blocks v2.1 doesn't keep accurate time unless the blocks are hidden; that's expected isn't it?  it looks like timing is best effort.
22:05 pikurasa Quozl: the timing is better than it has been, but I agree
22:06 with music, we /start/ from "perfection"
22:06 What do you mean by "unless blocks are hidden"?
22:06 Quozl there's a hide blocks button.
22:06 if you press it, the blocks are hidden.
22:07 when you play a piece with the blocks visible, there are graphics updates to the blocks, highlighting execution.
22:07 pikurasa oh that... /that/ improves performance?
22:07 Quozl my guess is that with the blocks hidden, less work needs to be done, and the system as a whole can concentrate on timing.
22:08 pikurasa Quozl: one thing that really improves performance is the newer feature to "compile" the code beforehand
22:08 It is the play button on the right side of screen
22:08 (above settings, I think)
22:08 but, then the code is not running live anymore
22:09 Mainly, this week I updated the examples https://github.com/walterbende[…]e/master/examples and found new bugs
22:10 I have a couple bugs, that I see as conceptual issues that I am eager for us to solve. For example, https://github.com/walterbende[…]blocks/issues/832
22:10 Quozl pikurasa: thanks, yes, that other play button seems different.
22:11 pikurasa Quozl: yes, when I do a demo, I tend to use that play button, so I can assure a good performance
22:12 yeah, if the notes play late, then it changes the rhythm, which is not good. If you find any places in the code for improvement, please chime in.
22:13 Quozl pikurasa: no worries, looks like my experience is already fixed by a feature.  ;-)
22:13 pikurasa great.
22:14 Quozl i've nothing further to report for the meeting.  with BWV996 PDF on screen i'm itching to play it.  so little manuscript score in the house, and i've not found a source of manuscript on the web that doesn't require payment.
22:15 pikurasa Quozl: then you do not know mutopia project
22:15 Quozl pikurasa: much that i do not know.  i can google.
22:15 pikurasa http://www.mutopiaproject.org/
22:15 Quozl oh, cool, thanks!
22:16 pikurasa clone all the code, then compile the scores when you want them
22:16 If you find "bugs" (errors) in the score. You can input them yourself.
22:16 https://github.com/MutopiaProject/MutopiaProject/
22:17 All the scores are under a free license
22:18 Quozl hmm, thanks.
22:19 i've nothing further, motion: close meeting.
22:19 pikurasa +1
