new [chuck~] object available

January 20, 2009 | 1:43 am

Everyone –

Version 1.4 (MaxMSP 4.x) and 1.5 (Max5) of the [chuck~] Max/MSP object
are available for free download:

http://music.columbia.edu/~brad/chuck~/

for Macintosh OS X (10.4 and 10.5).

The new [chuck~] object is up-to-date with the latest (v 1.2.1.2)
release of the ChucK language, including the LiSa live-sampling
unit generators and the unit-analysis generators in the
1.2.1.2 package.

[chuck~] imbeds the ChucK music-programming language in Max/MSP,
bringing a sophisticated set of synthesis and signal-processing tools
into the Max/MSP environment. [chuck~] also features an advanced
timing and scheduling system in addition to a functional-style
programming interface for algorithmic operations. Full source for
the object and the language are also on-line.

No Windows XP version is available at present — sorry!

This is a fun object — enjoy it! For more information about ChucK,
visit the ChucK web page:

Wonderful. You just made my day. I find that while I like the
language of ChucK better for algorithms and generative music, I
couldn’t get past the text part of it for building MIDI interfaces or
anything that had to be controlled by a human. Now, of course, ChucK
algorithms can be controlled by Jitter, ReWire, and soon Ableton Live.
Thanks!

i would be really interested in a windows version. can you give me a rough outline of what changes would be needed to build it?

im not much of a C / C++ programmer these days but im willing to get stuck in if its not too scary :)

Thanks! Alas, after switching back to Windows, I’ll have to wait until someone ports it…
