NYU Software Synthesis + The Csound Blog

NYU에 계신 Jean-Luc Cohen-Sinclair란 분이 csoundblog를 운영하는군요.

앞으로 사운드 관련 강의와 토론등에 더 집중할것이라고 합니다.

Csound하시는 분들께 좋은 자료가 될것 같네요.

Jean-Luc Cohen-Sinclair, adjunct faculty of music at NYU Steinhardt’s
School of Culture, Education and Human Development and Jacob Joaquin,
creator of the Csound Blog, are collaborating to design a unique
computer music course with an online counterpart that will accentuate
in-class lectures, discussions and demonstrations.  The duo will focus
on classic computer music techniques both in terms of synthesis and
composition, but will also cover some of the more recent techniques
and development in the field.

Web communities are a fact of life in today’s connected world of
real-time communications. Bringing Csound into this context, students
will learn that it is far more than an application for audio
synthesis, and that it is part of a living-breathing culture with a
rich and colorful history that exists without regional borders.

We invite the international Csound and computer music communities to
actively participate this semester to help educate and promote our
shared computer music roots.

Starting Monday at The Csound Blog.


csound~ v1.1.0

MAXMSP용 Csound~가 업데이트 되었습니다.

csound~ v1.1.0 is now available at:


csound~ is now compiled using the Max5 SDK, which means there is no Max4
Also, I’ve dropped support for ppc mac.  As always, feedback and bug reports
are welcome.

Here is the changelog:


(** = backwards compatibility issue)
(*  = deprecation issue)

– Rewritten using C++, STL, and Boost for added robustness and lower
maintenance effort.

– Better cooperation with Max threading architecture (potential hangs
eliminated, now
 using spinlocks).

– Uses Max5 attributes (there’s a csound~ tab in the inspector window).

– Can specify Max objects in the orchestra. Format is “<~> … </~>” where
 is a Max script for creating an object.

– Messages printed to the Max window can now be traced back to a specific
 instance by double-clicking on a line in the Max window.

– Warnings are colored light orange in the Max window instead of red.

– Can save sequences as JSON or XML files (in addition to binary format).

– If @matchsr attribute is 1, csound~ will auto recompile Csound with
 overrides whenever host sample-rate does not equal Csound sample-rate.
ksmps will
 be preserved.

– Fixed deadlock issues when using outlet data to trigger other csound~

– Fixed memory deallocation bug when running debug build of csound~.

– If csound~ is in bypass mode, sending “start” or “bang” to compile the
 will not be followed by an automatic run of 1 k-cycle performance.

– If csound~ is in bypass mode, MIDI bytes are not queued.

– Non-editable attribute @nolatency tells you when csound~ is processing
 without latency.

** No longer Max4 compatible.

** rsidx output message format has changed to: “rsidx table# index value”.

* @start is deprecated. Please use @autostart instead.

* @scale and “noscale” is deprecated. Audio is automatically scaled when
 levels don’t match.
