Mattias said something about Europa being something coming from the brain of Peter Jubel with help of the Props team. It got me thinking. Is this man one of the most underrated developers ever. When you look at all the stock instruments(except for Malstrom), FX, Time Stretch technology, not to mention his involvement with Nord at one point. Is there another plugin developer as prolific?

Hey Mattias how about an interview with Peter detailing his involvement with Reason over the years? I understand if he is a mad scientist who just want to be left alone to do mad scientist things. :)

Anyway thanks Peter.

He programmed the first Nord Lead which is recognised as the father of modern VA synths. It was used all over 90’s Madonna records.

As well at the Nord Lead, the Subtractor was a landmark in synthesis, so I think he will be recognised as being a pioneer at a time when the technology was changing. Perhaps PH should push his name a bit more, assuming he doesn't mind of course.

Hi fellows,

How about a behind the scenes photo from PHQ? This is Peter's hand and all the left over coffee mugs found on his table this morning.

Enjoy! :puf_bigsmile:

Cool but we need MORE. :puf_bigsmile: I get it some people would prefer to be behind the scenes though.

Oh wow, I use to drink that much coffee..

I also use to have crazy anxiety. Quitting coffee fixed that. Who would've known? :D

Recently quit caffeine cold turkey too. First week was hell. Now everything's pretty awesome.

very funny but drinking all that coffee in one day is very dangerous

I drink every day but only one cup

Either it takes a lot of coffee to make a synth like Europa or Peter is developing a Propellerhead version of Reactable using different coloured mugs for different modules.

When I drink a big glass of orange juice instead of coffee, I feel a lot better in the mornings. But coffee reduces a cancer-risk they say.

Coffee in moderate consumption can help protect against dementia and early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Among other things.

In my experience it takes 100's if not 1000's of cups of coffee to create each device.

Be very careful. That isn't a fact it's an opinion as this later published doc indicates.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24676319
"Some studies suggest a protective association while others report no benefit. To our knowledge, no evidence has been gathered from randomized controlled trials"

Confuses correlation with cause and effect. I'm not cynically suggesting that the coffee industry would like this to be true and so fund reports in that direction but there is no independent research on this. I and doctors I've spoken to can show clear correlation between alcohol consumption and dementia. I know several older people who were regular drinkers including family members who now have dementia, and others who weren't who don't. All of the dementia people drank coffee for their hangovers. I cant prove cause (yet) but I've basically stopped drinking booze although as a previous occasional binge drinker the damage may already be done.
Coffee drinkers have more rheumatism and joint problems again correlation not cause necessarily but as a runner I've found that personally to be true so don't drink coffee much any more and my knee and ankle pains have faded away.

Now back to the record........

I don't want to dwell on this, but as a neuroscience guy (that's my day job and education), I thought maybe I should pipe up. This is in fact "independent research". There is no "big coffee" out to get you and sway research in this regard; they don't need to (everybody's already hooked and society has no stigma against drinking it). The researchers in question work at a university and report no conflicts of interest that are related to "big coffee" (i.e. they're not being funded by anyone in the coffee industry).

Yes, the research is non-experimental, but speaking in terms of parsimony, it's reasonable to say that coffee may have a beneficial, protective effect against dementia and other NCDs. Another way of putting it: what common factor amongst these coffee drinkers in these varied samples is actually having the neuroprotective effect that's being observed? Strangely, nicotine may also be protective in this regard. I'm not suggesting we all go out and pound back the joe and smoke until our lungs hurt; there are obviously detrimental effects to smoking, for example (i.e. that you have a 1 in 2 chance of it killing you if you're a smoker). I'm simply emphasizing that we're not talking about "opinion" here. We're talking about educated conclusions based on the best available evidence. I'm sure people are working on true experiments on this now, and we will have new best available evidence.

And if you want to further discuss, I'd encourage you to send me a DM instead of sullying this thread even further!

If you thought being a music nerd was bad enough...

And for what it's worth, I'd love to see an in-house doc on Peter (or any of the other great talent there).

Green tea is healthier. It will help you live longer and lose weight.

Yes but consider the quality of the synths that will be produced after drinking this. I think real hard caffeine is needed for quality DSP coding.

Well these days its easy to only get the nicotine with e-cigs.. From what I read nicotine itself doesn't seem to do much harm unless you have a comparative LOT at once.. And its kinda nice being addicted, I mean theres only so many ways to make your body say "Yo dude, well done, you can do THAT again in time!" ;)

Just for the record : Peter has developed Sub, Parsec, Complex-1 and Friktion. Did he developed also Thor ? PX7 ? Thanks

He also did dsp/algos for Europa and Grain, if i'm not mistaken. He knows his stuff!

I think Thor was was done by someone else but don't quote me on it.

Oh yes, he did the DSP for Thor :)

I'm pretty sure Peter did the DSP (and various levels of other things) for the following devices:
  • Friktion
  • Europa
  • Thor
  • Monotone
  • Subtractor
  • Kong
  • Redrum
  • Dr OctoRex
  • NN-19 and NN-XT
  • Grain
  • Radical Piano
  • Radical Keys
  • Complex-1
  • Parsec
  • Audiomatic
  • Scream4
  • RV7000
  • MClass devices
  • Sweeper
  • Quartet
  • Master Bus Compressor
  • Channel EQ
  • Channel Dynamics
  • Polar
  • Rotor
  • The Echo
  • Pulveriser
  • Alligator
  • Synchronous
  • BV512
  • Neptune
  • DDL-1
  • CF-101
  • PH-90
  • RV-7
  • ECF-42
  • D-11
  • UN-16
  • PEQ-2
  • COMP-01
  • Dual Arpeggio
  • Pulsar
In addition he also did the DSP for the time stretch, slice detection and pitch edit algorithms. And probably some mixer-related things I'm forgetting. :puf_bigsmile:
