SndLib audio on Windows


#1

sndlib audio/common music is working on Windows now. Downloads and changelog on the homepage:

http://commonmusic.sourceforge.net/

For a fun demo try Bill Schottstaedt’s birdsongs and watch 'em sing. it takes about 10 seconds. Do this:

  1. Start Grace
  2. Select Audio>SndLib>Instruments…
  3. Double-click on the ‘bird’ instrument row, that’ll load the instruments and open the example
  4. Put your cursor just after (make-birds) in the birds.clm window and hit Command-Return
  5. wait 2 seconds for the audio file to compute, the player will pop up and start playing, watch each bird squawk as it plays. (well, the audio waveform is not drawing on windows for some reason but it sure is pretty on the mac! dont muck with Settings during playback on win, i forgot to disable that button!)
