readscore

readscore — Read, preprocess and schedule a score from an input string.

Description

Readscore will issue one or more score events. It can handle strings in the same conditions as the standard score, including preprocessing (carry, sort, ramp, etc). Multi-line strings are accepted, using {{ }} to enclose the string.

Syntax

readscore Sin 

Initialization

Sin -- a string (in double-quotes or enclosed by {{ }}) containing one or more score events.

Examples

Here is an example of the readscore opcode. It uses the file readscore.csd.

You can use string opcodes like sprintfk to produce strings to be passed to readscore like this:

Sfil = "/Volumes/Bla/file.aif"
String  sprintfk {{i 2 0 %f "%s" %f %f %f %f}}, idur, Sfil, p5, p6, knorm, iskip
readscore String
