I'm Nathan Ho, a software engineer and musician specializing in digital signal processing. I was a lead developer of free and open source audio platform SuperCollider from 2016 to 2019. Since then, I have worked on other solo open source projects including Venn 7 and OddVoices.

I started this personal blog as an outlet for talking about my interests in music tech, particularly algorithmic music, reverb design, physical modeling, virtual analog, vocal synthesis, and the history of music technology. Some posts are dedicated to explaining existing concepts, and others serve as lab notebook entries for projects I've undertaken. Although most posts will be about music and audio, expect occasional writing about mathematics and computer graphics.
