Cambridge SuperCollider Users Group - Meeting

Cambridge SuperCollider Users Group - Meeting #1 Tues 14th December, 7.30pm @ The Punter

following STEIM’s lead[1] I am starting a users group in Cambridge, UK for people interested in meeting and discussing SuperCollider stuff. I’m sure that there must be some people on this list that would be interested in getting involved. The first meeting will be informal, i.e. in a pub and I’m looking to meet once a month - every second Tues.

I’m therefore proposing that we meet from 7.30pm in The Punter[2] on Tuesday the 14th of December for our first meeting. Of course, nothing should be set in stone - so if you have any enthusiastic points to make about this proposal and want to get involved then please join the Google Group here: http://groups.google.com/group/sc-cambridge.

Looking forward to meeting people in a couple of weeks,

Sam

Amsterdam SuperCollider Users Group Meeting

First Amsterdam SuperCollider Users Group Meeting

Calling all SuperCollider users!
Ever wonder if there was a more elegant approach to a piece of code you wrote? Or looking for a new UGen to give you that unique sound you’re searching for? Maybe you just want to get some constructive criticism on a piece you’ve been working on. Coming up on 22 November STEIM is very excited to be hosting the first meeting of the Amsterdam SuperCollider Users Group, organized by local SuperCollider expert Marije Baalman and users like yourself.

Date: Monday, November 22, 2010
Time: 19:00 hrs.
Venue: Steim Studio 3, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam
Entry: Free

The SuperCollider user meeting aims to bring together SuperCollider users in the Netherlands. This monthly meeting is a place to get to know other SuperCollider users of all levels of expertise, and to share and discuss this powerful audio programming language. Come present your work, either finished projects or works in progress, share the tools you have created and get feedback from other users on your work. If you have questions on how to do certain things or want to learn how to do specific things within SuperCollider, we can look into these topics together. This first meeting we’ll start out with a meet and greet of all the participants, and have presentations from some of the participants who’d like to talk about what they’ve been working on.

Please let us know by email if you’re planning on attending so that we can keep you informed: sc.amsterdam@steim.nl

STEIM will provide a studio space and PA-system for your music-making pleasure. Drinks will also be available.
happy coding
jon

SuperCollider 3.4 released

SuperCollider 3.4 is now available for Mac and Linux.

Download for Mac:

Download for Linux:

There are many changes since 3.3.1 (full ChangeLog), including 64-bit support on mac and linux, iPhone support, performance improvements, and improved user interface features. Also, following the 3.4 “alpha” a couple of months ago we fixed a backwards-compatibility issue, made consistency improvements in JITlib, and more.

The ‘-with-extras’ versions include the new version of SwingOSC too (0.65).

Many people contributed towards this release - not just the large group of developers but also people improving documentation, reporting bugs, and so on. Thanks to you all!

(Note for Windows users: The latest SC for Windows is 3.3.1. We don’t have many active Windows developers at the moment, so there won’t be a 3.4 version until that changes.)

Chris Jeffs wins joint 1st prize in LoMus 2010

i’m happy to report that my SuperCollider-created program “particularity” has won joint 1st prize in the LoMus 2010 competition:
http://www.afim-asso.org/spip.php?article1
it seems like a good time to say thanks to the developers for all their work, and for the user crew here in berlin and elsewhere for their continued inspiration.

also thanks to alberto for the influence of pulsar generator, as my program started life as an attempt to replicate in some way its perceived functions.

aside from my feelings of personal glory, this is the second time in a row that a supercollider created project has won first prize (last time was ixiquarks)
so i think that’s quite good as well!

SuperCollider 3.4 release candidate

A “release candidate” for the new version of SuperCollider 3.4 is now available for Mac and Linux.

There are many changes since 3.3.1 (full ChangeLog), including 64-bit support on mac and linux, iPhone support, performance improvements, and improved user interface features. Also, following the 3.4 “alpha” a couple of months ago we fixed a backwards-compatibility issue, made consistency improvements in JITlib, and more.

This release candidate has been tested by the developers and if there are no problems then it will used for the official 3.4 release, but it could still benefit from some user testing. Your feedback is welcome! Our mailing lists are here.
