Haven’t watched it myself yet but the description sounds good (and if I put it here I wont loose it
The man primarily behind such Celemony innovations as Melodyne, DNA Direct Note Access and Capstan is Peter Neubäcker – a passionate musician, researcher and inventor, who sets unusual goals for himself and manages even on occasion to realize in practice things that in theory can’t be achieved. It was the question “What does a stone sound like?” that led Peter Neubäcker to the invention of Melodyne around 15 years ago.
In an interview with Maximilian Schönherr, he airs some of the secrets of Melodyne and offers insights into his thoughts and personal history. He talks about his passion for philosophy, music and mathematics as well as how guitar-making, Johannes Kepler and the science of Harmonics have influenced him. From the conversation, a fascinating 30-minute film portrait has emerged that not only shows one of the most resourceful and multi-facetted personalities in the audio industry but also the background to Celemony innovations.

Have to admit that’s one of the few threads I never read and this possibly deserves its own one anyway
Stones emit beautiful notes well below A-0. They have exceptionally longform songs that are undetectable by human hearing and modern science. But if you look at a stone, you’ll see it’s pretty obvious.
the future belongs to paper toilet rolls
