Ça vous est arrivé, d’éviter de modifier une fonction, par peur de causer des bugs ? De vous énerver en essayant de comprendre comment fonctionne le code source du projet que vous venez de rejoindre ? D’avoir des sueurs froides en approuvant les quelques modifications de code proposées par votre collègue dans sa Pull Request ?

Si oui, vous avez eu affaire à ce qu’on appelle du code legacy. On parle de legacy (héritage, en anglais) car il s’agit généralement de code qu’on a hérité d’un autre développeur. …

When plugging the HH65 hi-hat pedal into the “HH CTRL” port of my DTX for the first time, I was surprised to see that the behavior of pad 9 remained unchanged. With the DTX default settings, the HH65 was useless.

Here are the steps I had to follow in order to make pad 9 play an “open hi-hat” sounds by default, and use the HH65 pedal to “close” it. …

This weekend, I discovered “ImuJam”, a website on which musicians can record their performances and contribute to others’.

I thought this was a pretty cool thing to try, but then I realised that recoding my electronic drum kit through my laptop’s microphone would include the sound of my drum sticks hitting the pads, which would sound bad…

So I figured out a way to make this work:

  • plug my DTX Multi-12 drum kit to my computer using a MIDI cable;
  • pick a drum sound that I like on Ableton Live 10, and make sure that its track listens to my MIDI…
