a little bump on this… as Ive been digging SC for the last few days …
and wondering where to go with this on the Organelle
recently , I was messing with getting Monome Norns running on the rPI, which uses Lua + Supercollider.
Ive no intention of moving this to Organelle, as its just to cpu intensive for a ‘vanilla organelle’ which has a single core - also its possible some of the required software wont install (due to the old version of arch linux used)
but it did re-ignite my interest in SC.
last few days Ive been playing with Bela Salt (a Linux based Eurorack module) , Ive been doing two things with this…
a) running Crone (the SC part of Norns) on Salt, then using a rPI running Norns to interface to it.
b) running Scsynth on Salt and a SCIDE on a laptop, and doing some ‘live coding’ (great fun with a modular).
(of course, I could have used a rPI+hdmi display too, but a laptop is more convenient )
really these are kind of related, its the idea of using the client-server nature of SC to split the processing load over ‘machines’
so started to wonder how I might use Organelle is such a setup…
Im thinking, I could use it as a backend, similar to how im using Salt, this already works…
but seems some kind of ‘front-end’ makes more sense, or a backend perhaps with some UI control… given the Organelle has a UI.
I thought perhaps making it Norns ‘engine’ compatible (had the same thought with Salt), but Ive kind of thrown that into touch, as Norns engine have to be compiled, and that loses the dynamic/live coding side that is a real attraction to me of SC.
Im not that interested in using SC for running synths/fx, we can already do this in PD, Im interested in how it can do something thats not so viable in PD - hence live-coding.
Im also not that interested, in building up lots of layers like tidalcycles etc, as I quite like using the ‘raw’ SC, which the proxy space/ndef stuff , even if it is a bit more verbose.
although there has seems to have been little interest in SC on Organelle,
I thought Id give this thread a little bump to see:
partly because my experience is growing with SC, so Im likely to come back to do a bit more on this,
and partly to see, if anyone has interest in this area, and where their interests are.
anyway, just a bump, see if others imagination has been sparked…
and if they have got deeper into SC of late (with or without Organelle) and where they are going with it
