Be Thankful This Thanksgiving — But Get Your Holiday Shopping List Here

I want to write something fabulous about Thanksgiving and about being thankful for what we have — But it seems that since Covid, every company and product on the planet is offering a continual Black Friday Deal. Although, of course, the businesses around here started Black Friday before Halloween — where’s the tradition in that? Still, I keep getting emails and texts (and yes, demands — “where’s your holiday list?”) about getting this list out — so here goes.

MSoundFactory Complete Collection by Melda Production Latest

MSoundFactory Complete Collection by MeldaProduction Full Free Download. MSoundFactory Crack will most likely be a never-ending project. Melda is probably not going to make any further instruments, instead, they are going to implement further modules and features into the mighty MSoundFactory. MSoundFactory currently comes with many presets converted from MPowerSynth and several fully-featured instruments, but it’s far from being “ready”. However, it can already be used by creative minds looking for an extremely powerful instrument. The only necessary module needed to be added to the first official release is a sampler, so please stay in tune.

Single-cell analysis of diverse immune phenotypes in malignant pleural effusion

The complex interactions among different immune cells have important functions in the development of malignant pleural effusion (MPE). Here we perform single-cell RNA sequencing on 62,382 cells from MPE patients induced by non-small cell lung cancer to describe the composition, lineage, and functional states of infiltrating immune cells in MPE. Immune cells in MPE display a number of transcriptional signatures enriched for regulatory T cells, B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells compared to corresponding counterparts in blood. Helper T, cytotoxic T, regulatory T, and T follicular helper cells express multiple immune checkpoints or costimulatory molecules. Cell-cell interaction analysis identifies regulatory B cells with more interactions with CD4+ T cells compared to CD8+ T cells. Macrophages are transcriptionally heterogeneous and conform to M2 polarization characteristics. In addition, immune cells in MPE show the general up-regulation of glycolytic pathways associated with the hypoxic microenvironment. These findings show a detailed atlas of immune cells in human MPE and enhance the understanding of potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets in advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

Sound designers The Solos shed some light on ASHLIGHT’s dark, granular textures

We take a trip to Amsterdam to see how these soundtrack-ready soundscapes were created. ASHLIGHT is the final instalment in our granular KONTAKT trilogy, following the ambient pads of STRAYLIGHT and the eery vocal textures of PHARLIGHT. It’s also by far the darkest, featuring rumbling textures, gritty lead sounds, and ice-cold pads. We’ve already looked at the engine that made these instruments possible (and it’s worth noting that ASHLIGHT’s iteration also includes MPE support), but the video above delves into the other side of the equation – the sounds that give ASHLIGHT it’s unique character within the series.

Triple Spiral Audio – Empty Fields F.3 for Falcon 2

Triple Spiral Audio – Empty Fields F.3 for Falcon 2. Empty Fields – F.3 for Falcon by UVI was an ongoing project with 10 releases in a one year timespan (every 4/5 weeks a new release). Each release contained 50 new patches crafted from new recorded material and using the synthesis from Falcon. And though it shares the same setup as the soundset F.2, this is a completely new soundset with its own character and sampling material.

The geometry of mixed-Euclidean metrics on symmetric positive definite matrices

Several Riemannian metrics and families of Riemannian metrics were defined on the manifold of Symmetric Positive Definite (SPD) matrices. Firstly, we formalize a common general process to define families of metrics: the principle of deformed metrics. We relate the recently introduced family of alpha-Procrustes metrics to the general class of mean kernel metrics by providing a sufficient condition under which elements of the former belongs to the latter. Secondly, we focus on the principle of balanced bilinear forms that we recently introduced. We give a new sufficient condition under which the balanced bilinear form is a metric. It allows us to introduce the Mixed-Euclidean (ME) metrics which generalize the Mixed-Power-Euclidean (MPE) metrics. We unveal their link with the (u, v)-divergences and the ($\alpha$, $\beta$)-divergences of information geometry and we provide an explicit formula of the Riemann curvature tensor. We show that the sectional curvature of all ME metrics can take negative values and we show experimentally that the sectional curvature of all MPE metrics but the log-Euclidean, power-Euclidean and power-affine metrics can take positive values.
