Why Do We Do the Things We Do?

    The “Why Do We Do the Things We Do” custom DAW was created in Max 7, PureData, and Arduino with the aim of developing a recording and editing suite panel which could function in similar way as a vintage tape recorder. It is comprised by 39 digital functions and 8 analog controls providing full standalone capabilities to capture, automatically tag, and organise conversations up to several hours of length. Browsing is performed with a jog wheel, including real-time advanced audio editing and a dedicated multi-functioning system to retrieve desired excerpts both upon request and in a generative way.
