Today I learned about...

...calculating the cpu usage of any process in linux.

The /proc sytem gives all the information you need to calculate CPU usage at any interval you want. the free energy principle may imply a feedback mechanism for learning.

The free energy principle may guide feedback mechanisms for learning behaviors at the cellular level.

...tinting an image with `imagemagick`.

Tinting an image into a specific color can be done with a single command using imagemagick.

...generating automatically tuned drums for op-z and op-1.

A bank of drum samples can be tuned and spliced and turned into a TE device patch with just a little bit of code.

...faking ambisonics with supercollider.

There is a simple trick to make audio float around binaural headphones by using oscillating filters and delays on each channel.

...emulating a jp-8000 supersaw in supercollider.

Reverse-engineering a non-linear response curve for detuning multiple oscillators is the key to a great sounding synthesizer.
