The CREATE Signal Library (CSL) is a generalpurpose software framework for sound synthesis and digital audio signal processing. It is implemented as a C++ class library to be used to build stand-alone synthesis servers, or embedded into other programs. This paper describes the overall design and implementation of CSL version 3. We also present CSL's(More)
Modern data generation techniques used in distributed systems biology research projects often create datasets of enormous size and diversity. We argue that in order to overcome the challenge of managing those large quantitative datasets and maximise the biological information extracted from them, a sound information system is required. Ease of integration(More)
This paper describes recent advances in platformindependent object-oriented software for music and sound processing. The Siren system is the result of almost 20 years of continuous development in the Smalltalk programming language; it incorporates an abstract music representation language, interfaces for real-time I/O in several media, a user interface(More)
Auracle is a “group instrument,” controlled by the voice, for real-time, interactive, distributed music making over the Internet. It is implemented in the Javaprogramming language using a combination of publicly available libraries (JSyn and TransJam) and custom-built components. This paper describes how the various pieces — the voice analysis, network(More)
The Klangdom is an audio spatialization instrument developed at the Institut für Musik und Akustik at the ZKM. It is made up of 39 Meyer Sound loudspeakers hung on four sliding tracks, allowing for easy re-configuration of the speaker setup. The audience sits inside the Klangdom, which can be controlled either directly via a mixer, by externally developed(More)
We have received feedback from our users and supporters on the functionality and usability of the Swiss Grid Proteomics Portal during its first year of operation. We have also realized which aspects of the portal could be improved upon through frequent monitoring and interaction with the production system under heavy use. In a second, highly upgraded(More)
New experimental methods must be developed to study interaction networks in systems biology. To reduce biological noise, individual subjects, such as single cells, should be analyzed using high throughput approaches. The measurement of several correlative physical properties would further improve data consistency. Accordingly, a considerable quantity of(More)
