new [chuck~] object available


    Jan 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:
    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!

      Eagerly awaiting windows version ;)

      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 :)

      ok, i just had a look at the source, thats far too much work for me at the moment. i hope someone tackles it soon :)

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