GNAR is Noisebridge Audio Research.

GNAR is Not Audio Research.

The primary objective is to provide community resources to conduct research and experiments on the subjects of sound, signal and noise. The secondary objective is a commitment to a Free/Libre Open Source FLOS approach. This is rolled up into a patchwork called Gnar/Linux. It is based on Debian testing with package repos from KXStudio.

The toolchain begins with the computer music workstation and expands out to software and hardware synthesizers, DSP plugins and analysis tools. Studying source code on the software layer is crucial. Studying circuits on the analog layer is required.

An important note is song structure or multi track recording is not the focus of this group. That subject is better serviced by Songbridge which is an ongoing tutorial series on composing song structures, mostly in Ableton.
