I fixed a nasty bug in the score editor... The score editor is the only one I know of that uses features that were in jeskola buzz and aplies them to csound such as templates exc... I dont have that much time to work on it so it may be a while befour it is updated again.. http://www.stormpages.com/edexter/csound.html
Miller Puckette mentioned during his keynote at this years Linux Audio Conference that he didn't care much for so-called 'live' computer music where the performer plays only a very small part in the overall piece. I thought it would be fun to write something that only records a second or so of live input from the performer and then goes to town with it. The attached instrument couldn't be much simpler, two comb filters and the option of an allpass if needed. Be forewarned that it's a glitch instrument of sorts so expect plenty of raw sounds.
I am currently working on a small update to the MacOS X/9 version of CMask. So far, I think that I have fixed almost all of the shortcomings in the GUI from the previous release. The "Generate Score..." command should hopefully now allow you to open any file on MacOS X 10.4. And the other menu commands are all working with the exception of "Page Setup".
It's very slow in realtime performance to play a polyphonic ensenble consisted of sf2s. No matter how I adjusted the kr, -B, -b, and -d, it just won't work. Is there any trick that can make it work?
This is a simple little soundfile playback .csd file. I'm currently using it instead of iTunes because it's quicker to just play a file back on the fly, using the provided script.
Joachim Heintz very correctly pointed out on the Csound emailing list that the syntax highlighting text editor cseditor which is part of the canonical source base somehow did not make it back into the installers.
My guess is that changes in the SConstruct file have made including the cseditor binary on all platforms in the installer a problem. I will look into that and commit the changes.
For now, this is a binary for users of OSX, since Joachim Heintz brought it up. It also includes the source code and will compile on all platforms simply using the commandline
$ fltk-config --compile frontends/cseditor/cseditor.cxx
from the root directory of the CVS source code tree. For example, from a fresh checkout.
Hopefully this helps to obviate some confusion surrounding a lightweight, portable, and compact solution for a Csound syntax highlighting text editor.
NOTE that since .cxx files are not uploadable to this blog, it may be necessary to rename cseditor.cxx.txt to cseditor.cxx
Today's blog is on SineBox: a "music box" like instrument that plays itself. Once a user starts SineBox with a single i-event in the score, SineBox creates instances of itself, generating multiple sine tones over time. This may not be the most musical piece of Csound technology ever conceived of. It can, however, be molded to fit a wide range of uses, musical and otherwise.

I recently wrote an article on doing physical modeling of a microtonal flute in realtime with csound5, this is a relatively simple instrument that produces strange results, and could make a nice instrument for a midi controller improvisation with other musicians. The design reflects my previous background in free improvisation, my idea of a csound free jazz instrument.
As a hobby I took on an audio music programming adventure. The adventure became an obsession.
At some point at the end of spring I started developing this program to control another program which was an interpreter for another program. Basically it is a GUI for Csound. It was a great experience. A lot of friends were made while making this.
OK. I now have the privileges to post news items on Csounds.com, so maybe I won't need to use this blog for software release announcements. But I may still announce pre-release versions of CsoundFront or other tools and occasionally provide details about what I am working on. I am even considering posting some of my personal Csound explorations now.
I am loving the new cSounds.com! And this new blogging feature for Csounders is amazing -- I expect many useful things to come out of it.
I have to say, having the ability to blog at cSounds.com is both exciting and weird. And even better, it gives me a place where I can do additional shameless self promotion. :) So without further ado...
It also just occurred to me that everyone can now have their own Csound blog here at cSounds.com. Which is way cool!
