[This might be better posted in a forum, but as they seem to have disappeared from the front page...]
I'm writing a Csound app, possibly for The Tech Museum in San Jose, and I want to demo it there soon. However, I'm using Linux, and it sounds as if they only have PCs and Macs, and I will have to install Csound on whichever machine is to be used.
As I don't use either OS personally (and have no good access to either), it'd be a good idea to know of any obstacles before I go down there and spen a fruitless afternoon trying to get things to work!

I am very happy to announce a new release called "Elementals" on the Stasisfield netlabel. John Kannenberg has done the beautiful job of design, packaging and presentation that Statisfield followers have come to expect, and I am grateful to part of his roster. Of the four pieces included, three were created with Csound (and two were made using blue).
In John's words:

My Publisher "Armelin Musica" and I, we are very happy to announce the new book about Csound, written in italian language.
This is a nice book for a big software like Csound.
I know the Computer Music since 1982, but I discovered Csound during my studies on Piano (Diploma, 1986) and Computer Music with Nicola Bernardini
(assistant of Luciano Berio) in 1995 after the PhD. in medieval Logic.

Just started with cSound, so steep learning curve.
I'm finding the tutorials very confusing... I think I need something simpler still. Any thoughts?

Hello all. My name is Jim Bond, I am a published Hip Hop producer from NY. I am currently looking for talented sound designers with experience in the Hip Hop field. I am starting a new website selling Hip Hop drum sounds and would like to have someone working by my side as I build this new company. Thanks.

1. pvsanal outputs an fsig. What is an fsig?
2. does pitchtrack output a number every k period or does it do an analysis from beginning to end?
Many thanks for help.

A couple of weeks ago someone posted about the problems they were having, getting Cubase to understand a midifile generated by Csound. It turns out that Csound uses the rather rare "SMPTE" scheme to specify the tick rate, and many apps don't seem to know about this, like Cubase -- and one I use that actually plays the file backward!
This sparked me into writing a little utility to convert SMPTE into the more usual "ticks-per-beat" specification, based on my Ruby package for processing midifiles, and it seems to work quite well.

This is a slightly-edited excerpt from the abcsound.py documentation, which I thought might be of general interest:

I will avoid giving to many updates that will be on my blog. I found a tab editor with a free type license I could parse the output of. It looks like the sort of program that alot of programs could use because text based editing methods are popular in csound. I was able to do my first parse, on my to do list will be to flesh out the parser a little bit and move the old program into the new wx space.

After a year I finally finished documenting the abcsound.py architecture and providing some pydoc for the code. It's all here:
abcsound accepts the "abc" textual score notation as input, and produces Csound scores as output. It uses an enhanced version of abc that allows multiple voices and permits explicit control of pfield values (using abc decorations) in the output score.

This is another version of the same project, but now with the csd file. The main instruments are: 1) a filtered noise, with two resonant filters in series (adapted from an instrument by Eric Lyon, on Csound Book), and, 2) a random step wave (adapted from an instrument by Steven Cook). The score is made using a simple python program (I'll post this next time, but now it's to much chaotic!).
P.S.: I prefer first version, but this is more short!

Sometimes i like to lose myself listening long quite

Another piece. It is only a way into my study of Mr. Tobiah's orchestra, of music, of csound, of python, of myself (in spite of my venerable age), and many other things. At the basis there is granular techniques, more exactly grainlet technique, cause there are some parameter linkage.
Mr. Tobiah had a great idea. Thanks.
And thanks to all other composers of this challenge; in their music i have found many inspirations.

A Door Into Spring is a rhapsody in distressed metal. I took a recording of a dishwasher door spring, used syncgrain opcode to stretch it from 6.9 seconds to over nine minutes, and made five layers, each at a different pitch. More at http://mysterybear.net/article/35/a-door-into-spring
