How to Refresh Reminders.app on mac - when it doesn't refresh by itself

Sometimes you'll find yourself adding items to Reminders on your iPhone or iPad, and not see them on your mac's Reminders app.

How to solve this issue?
By refreshing the reminders app on your mac:

Just quit Reminders.app on your mac, run Terminal.app and run this command:

defaults write com.apple.reminders RemindersDebugMenu -boolean true

Open Reminders.app again and now when you click Command+R -> it will refresh :)

Hope it helps you with syncing your reminders list between your mac and your iPhone or iPad

Bump Version in Xcode with a datetime-stamp

In order to create an automatic custom build number that bumps on its own every time you archive a build, add a new build phase of type "run script" and put the following code in the box (remember to check "run only when installing" so it doesn't run every time you build but only when you archive)

# Set the build number to the current timestamp in a "2016-09-19-11:53:09" format
# @author nur

appBuild=$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H:%M:%S")

/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set :CFBundleVersion $appBuild" "${TARGET_BUILD_DIR}/${INFOPLIST_PATH}"

/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set :CFBundleVersion $appBuild" "${BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR}/${WRAPPER_NAME}.dSYM/Contents/Info.plist"

hoep this helps you bump internal build numbers for your team using xcode automatically!

no problem

ffmpeg -i inFile.mov -map 0:0 -vcodec copy -c:a pcm_s24le -map 0:1 -filter:a:0 "pan=mono|c0=c0" outFile-mono.mov

Korg Monotron Presets Booklet

Do you have a Korg Monotron, Duo or Delay?
Korg say that they don't like presets for these little synths, to make you explore more rather than take a ready-made preset.
With that said, if you wanna start from somewhere familiar and then tweak it - you want presets.

So I created a small preset bank that you can program easily

Here they are (in my hand writing):

Korg Monotron Delay - presets

Korg Monotron Duo - presets

Korg Monotron - presets

I hope you find these Korg Monotron Presets useful !!!
