It's taken a lot longer than anticipated, but a new teaser for PlanMixPlay is finally here. I think it is undoubtedly the best vertical slice of PlanMixPlay's functionality by far.
There's a fair bit work left to do, to have the PlanMixPlay User-Interface properly support the types of parameters this new visualizer style supports. The video presents a debugging interface to manipulate the visualizer. However, once this work has been done - it'll be ready to do a proper live show with!
I'm currently facing a higher than usual load of personal activities in my life, forcing me to throttle the least life-crucial activities a bit which unfortunately includes the weekly shows I've been doing. Thus, the schedule moving forward will be bi-weekly. In addition I've had to postpone the show originally scheduled for today by a week.
The bad news is - no show today/tonight. The good news is, the show isn't canceled, so despite now being on a bi-weekly schedule you'll be getting two weekends in a row with a show. Yay for content!
In relation to PlanMixPlay, the most recent development involves better support of debugging visualizers as that's been a growing concern ever since the visualizer pipeline has matured to a point where it can now support the majority of the first envisioned ideas I'd like to implement.
I wish there was more to say/show, but I'll be keeping the cards a bit close to the chest until I have something I'm comfortable putting on display.
This year seems to have passed even faster than the one that preceded it. It's been the year of my online streaming comeback and so far I'm fairly content with the result. If there's anything to be discontent about, it's perhaps the speed at which PlanMixPlay progresses. There's absolutely no lack of ideas and features I'd like to cram in there at the push of a button, but alas, it's also important to be able to prioritize.
I feel this is something I'm not great at, but hopefully getting better.
It's no secret that I've long wanted to get PlanMixPlay out in-front of an actual crowd, and while it's still not quite ready, I think 2019 might actually be the year I have not only my next prototype party, but perhaps even a proper live local show. Time will tell. But although progress has felt slow, it's been a steady slow. I try my best to balance my time between the actual live show I've started doing again on SlayRadio, as well as getting PlanMixPlay feature ready for a proper live show. A few recent upgrades that I recall would include...

Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank everyone who's bothered to give me their attention, as well as provided feedback.
Happy holidays and a happy new year!
