This is the personal website of Josef Heinen. I am a research assistant at Research Centre Jülich. The design and development of visualization systems has been an essential part of my activities over twenty years. I have an affinity for macOS, Julia  and Python. I am involved in several open source projects, e.g. the GR framework.

In my free time I am dealing with the programming in the areas of DAW and MIDI. For several years, I have a certain fondness for the Python programming language, which is also reflected in private activities.

My latest private software project is a MIDI mixer in pure Python (Mplay). A Julia versiopn is in the pipeline and will be finished as time permits.

My latest music arrangement, the motto song for this year’s carnival season in my hometown, can be found here (“Brook” – text and vocals: Helmut Frenken).
