sc-max supercollider library

Jun 19 2010 | 4:44 pm

I started porting some supercollider ugens to maxmsp. Most of them are noise generators, included is the sc implementation of the stochastic synthesis generator gendy conceived by Iannis Xenakis.

It is mac, max 5 only so far. But since this code is gpl’ed you can fork the project on github and I’d happily submit a windows port.

Just like to express thanks for this– will you be porting more ugens (and can I put in a special request for klang and klank)?

I will port some more ugens specially some filters. Not too sure about klang/klank though: oscbank~ and resonators~ (from CNMAT) do the job good enough for me.

Very nice. Finally Gendy in MaxMSP. Thanx for the porting and sharing!!!!

very nice project!

what seems to me a bug (and i am not enough programmer to go and fix it):

when using multiple sc.dust~ or sc.dust2~ objects, the instances produce identical signals after the patch is reloaded. seems they get the same random seed.
two sc.gendy~ objects, or vanilla max noise~ objects *do* correctly produce different signals for each instance.

This has been fixed as of now:

Has anyone ported these externals for Windows yet?

Best regards.

hello, any chance to get a 64bits version ? thx a lot.

Aug 10 2016 | 3:05 am

@FP hey, you could be lucky. just pushed a 64bit update on github.
don’t know if or when the original author will merge and make a new release.
if you want to try a preliminary built for osx, let me know.

oh thx a lot; actually I’m back to 32bits because of some annoying bugs in Ableton Live and a performance soon. but for sure I’ll check it asap. best.

Hi all. The link above for the 64 bit version doesn’t seem to be working. Does anyone have a working link for the 64 bit version of the SC externals? Would love to be able to use these in Max! Anyway, thanks in advance.

sorry, i did the 64bit version for my own purposes and made the sources available in case someone wanted to work with this. In the meantime the original author of the lib apparently is working on an update himself (which you can follow on github), so I took my stuff down again.

Hi all,
you can get the new mac 64 binaries here: .

Source code etc is at .

To the c74 team – I used the latest cmake based build system and new max api for this. I have to stay this is quite a big pleasure to work with.

Somewhat off-topic but does anyone know of similar projects or repositories for sc to gen~ ?
