Hi there, I'm very new to csound and just trying to get the damn thing up and running! I have a 2.16 GHz intel core 2 duo imac with OSX 10.4.11 and I've downloaded and installed csound5. On reading some of the beginners advice, it seems that a 'front end' is advisable. I have made the assumption that this is some kind of slightly-more-user-friendly graphical interface that helps me get things moving...is this correct?
With that assumption in mind, I downloaded MacCsound and installed it and attempted to start it. It simply did not start. It flashed briefly on my dock and dissappeared. It is present in my applications folder, so I'm puzzled to say the least. I tried the same thing with multiple versions of qute csound with the same results exactly.
Please guys, what am I doing wrong??
Many thanks for your time,
