Sequencing SuperCollider with Ableton Live using IAC and Sound Flower



The pictured, is of SuperCollider being sequenced with Ableton Live. I am using the IAC bus to transmit MIDI from Live to SuperCollider and Sound Flower to get the audio back into Live for mixing and recording. The midi coming from live contains note frequencies, on/off events, and pitch bend. The source code for the SC3 project comes mainly from the MIDIIn tutorial. I also read some back dated posts about using the SC several with alternative output devices. Below is the source code. It works in three stages:
//First initialize the midi and audio devices
(
MIDIClient.init;
//0 is iac bus internal routing from live!
MIDIIn.connect(0, 0);
//set the action:
MIDIIn.control = {arg src, chan, num, val;
val.postln;
};
Server.internal.options.device = "Soundflower (2ch)";
Server.local.options.device = "Soundflower (2ch)";
);
//next define your synth and start the server
(
MIDIIn.connect;
s = Server.local;
s.boot;
s.latency = 0;

SynthDef("sik-goo", { arg freq=400,fromfreq=100, gate=0.0, bwfreq=800;
var x;
x = Formant.ar(
SinOsc.kr(0.02,0,10,freq),
fromfreq,
bwfreq
);
x = EnvGen.kr(Env.adsr,gate,Latch.kr(gate,gate)) * x;
Out.ar(0,x);
}).send(s);
);
//finally link the midi actions to the defined synth parameters
(
x = Synth("sik-goo");
// action;
MIDIIn.noteOn = {arg src,chan,num,vel;
x.set(\freq,num.midicps /4.0);
x.set(\gate, vel / 200);
x.set(\formfreq, vel / 127 *1000 );
};
MIDIIn.noteOff = { arg src,chan,num,vel;
x.set(\gate, 0.0);
};
MIDIIn.bend = { arg src,chan,val;
x.set(\bwfreq,val * 0.048828125 );
};
);

// cleanup
x.free;


What follows is blatant commercialism, thwarted by technical snafu:


Bandcamp !

Just in time for the holidays, Bandcamp come through with tracks for you! Not just is another indie music site, band camp lets artists sell their music online for free and a variety of network tracking statistics features. The layout is stylish, and unfettered by extraneous advertisements. They also have a flexible pricing structure for downloads. And to top it all off their widget has a neat-o 3D visualizer, very similar to what I used to do back in the with wings3d and pd at spin jam :

Tremolo Audio Unit




I have been working with the SuperCollider audio Units Wrapper. The plug-in is a basic tremolo unit, suitable for an effects send bus. It has a nice clean sound, and you can automate the modulation frequency. Available for download here

http://www.archive.org/download/TremoloAudioUnit/tremolo.zip

and learn more about creating your own Audio Units Effect:
http://supercolliderau.sourceforge.net/

To install simply download and place in the /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components of the system or your home directory. Then restart your audio units compatible host. I have tried it with Ableton Live and AU Lab, and had a lot of success.

dotted fields came to life out of a series of exchanges built around one chance encounter. The two men who resided in the same region, built upon similar sounds, and moved across country at the same time, accidentally met at a small show in an art gallery on a dreary night. From that one instance a series of sonic exchange sessions began. It was those sessions that gave birth to the dotted fields.

10 reason's I like COMPUSA more than etail

1. No one bothers you, the sales staff never even talk to you - don't believe me - try getting some one to show you one of the manager special/broken display model cameras

2. Instant gratification, don' have to wait for shipping

3. It's closer than fry's

4. wher else can you scoff at technology and feel superior

5. I can't think of anymore, maybe thats why their going out of business.

Emusician kicks down some cabinets


No not the base booming type, the office furniture variety. Now we'll have a place to put all techno-gadgets when we're done playing with them. So thank you Electronic musician for help us organize the rehearsal space!
