=0 it's a group, value or control bus mapping symbol (e.g. a 64 bit integer. Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file. Turn on or off error messages sent to the SuperCollider post window. cmd_b_write = 31, SuperCollider has a special efficient wavetable format to pack a buffer. (optional), number of sequential controls to change (M), the ID of the node before which the above is placed (B), the ID of the node after which the above is placed (B). SwingOSC is an OpenSoundControl (OSC) server intended for scripting Java(tm), such as to create graphical user interfaces with AWT/Swing classes. May be "scsynth" or "supernova". Request a representation of this group's node subtree, i.e. cmd_n_map = 14, Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file and writes it to the given starting frame in the buffer. A node was started. Commands are defined by unit generator plug ins. For convenience of client-side methods, you can also suppress errors temporarily, for the scope of a single bundle. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to single values. Since you don't know what the ID is, you cannot talk to this node directly later. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, audio bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Both may be supplied.-u udp-port-number a port number 0-65535.-t tcp-port-number a port number 0-65535-v verbosity Controls the verbosity of server messages. To eliminate a DC offset when used as a waveshaper, the wavetable is offset so that the center value is zero. This was an experimental version and is really a different program than version 2. You can see Synths and Groups being created just by looking at the Server graphics. NOTE: This command is deprecated.This command is deprecated in 10.0, instead you can use commands such as rm lb vserver. The target node is freed. Read sound file data into an existing buffer. There are four ways to add the group to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows (the same as for /s_new): Multiple groups may be created in one command by adding arguments. cmd_b_get = 42, flag; if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be posted, flag: if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be included, flag: if synth control values are included 1, else 0, number of child nodes contained within the requested group, number of child nodes contained within this node. Responds to the sender with a /b_info message. Move the listed nodes to the location specified by the target and add action, and place them in the order specified. cmd_cmd = 4, Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Exits the synthesis server. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a background thread to complete so as not to steal CPU time from the audio synthesis thread. cmd_n_query = 46, Unit Generator Definitions are plug-ins loaded automatically when the program starts. cmd_b_query = 47, -- Implementation of the "Server Command Reference" spec-- The spec changes very, very infrequently, but the reference is-- included in the source of this file-- -- Typically you want to import this qualified, e.g. More may be added to the end of the list in the future.enum { All commands are received via TCP or UDP using a simplified version of Open Sound Control (OSC). Command arguments have single character tags which occur in a tag string to identify their types. There was a problem. These messages are sent as notification of some event to all clients who have registered via the /notify command. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_n_order = 62, default = 0), number of frames to write (optional. Is it possible to call a long-running Supercollider script (including booting the server) from a Windows batch file, say, by calling sclang.exe with the Supercollider script as a command-line argument? This is only meant for setting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. cmd_version = 64, construct the node order just after the node specified by the add target ID. cmd_n_fill = 17, Buffers are used for wave tables, sample buffers, delay lines, envelopes, or for any other need which can use an array of floating point values. cmd_g_new = 21, cmd_b_allocReadChannel = 54, This is how you can map the controls of a node with an auto generated ID. Get contiguous ranges of controls. Buffers may be safely allocated, loaded and freed while synthesis is running, even while unit generators are using them. Synths send audio signals to each other via a single global array of audio buses. These are short notes on installing SuperCollider from source on a debian-based Linux distro … in 2019. The SuperCollider 3 Synth Server is a simple but powerful synthesis engine. as 'SCCmd',-- for 'SCCmd.quit', etc. In a SuperColliderprogram, it is the last value stated in a program that automatically becomes the return value - no special command is required. print the parsed contents of the message. It is descended from Smalltalk, considered by many to be the first completely object-oriented programming language. cmd_n_mapa = 60, The currently defined buffer fill commands are listed below in a separate section. One of -u or -t must be supplied. (optional) some commands provide other information, for example a buffer index. The synth server does not send or receive MIDI. eg. However, even if this is not done, the next bundle or message received will begin with the standard error posting status, as set by modes 0 or 1. The class reference would then only contain descriptions of the class, the methods and their arguments. A made a very serious "hmmmmmm" sound when I got to the bit about ports. It uses the reflection and beans mechanism to dynamically create instances of java classes and control t If the control bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. a 64 bit double precision floating point number. Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global control bus. add the new node to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_close = 33, cmd_g_freeAll = 24, cmd_g_dumpTree = 56, The server will reassign this synth to a reserved negative number. Set contiguous ranges of buses to sets of values. Buffers are arrays of 32 bit floating point values with a small descriptive header. Open commands in Atom with command-shift-P and type superc to filter by supercollider commands. cmd_n_free = 11, default = 1 channel), starting frame in file (optional. allocSharedControls(numControls) - set the number of shared control buses. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. See RootNode and Default Group for more info. All nodes have an integer ID. 1 - add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If you use ['/error', -1] within a self-bundling method, you should always close it with ['/error', -2] so that subsequent bundled messages will take the correct error posting status. If the server was booted from within SCLang (as opposed to from the command line) there will also be a 'default group' with an ID of 1 which is the default target for all new Nodes. cmd_notify = 1, cmd_status = 2, Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. Sends all arguments following the command name to the unit generator to be performed. So this is useful for nodes that are of finite duration and that get the control information they need from arguments and buses or messages directed to their group. long. a series of Commands each preceded by a 32-bit integer byte length. These are the currently defined command numbers. Adds the node to the tail (last to be executed) of the group. Replies to sender with the corresponding /b_setn command. not yet implemented. normalize - Normalize peak amplitude of wave to 1.0. wavetable - If set, then the buffer is written in wavetable format so that it can be read by interpolating oscillators. ["/d_load", "synthdefs/void.scsyndef", If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Allocates zero filled buffer to number of channels and samples. Similar to sine2 except that each partial may have a nonzero starting phase. Reply to /n_query. default = -1, see below), starting frame in buffer (optional. name: vivid-supercollider version: 0.3.0.0 synopsis: Implementation of SuperCollider server specifications description: An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. default = 0, see below), number of frames to read (optional. cmd_b_gen = 38, If you use a node ID of -1 for any other command, such as /n_map, then it refers to the most recently created node by /s_new (auto generated ID or not). If the channels argument is absent or empty all channels are read in the order they appear in the file. Since version 3.6 SuperCollider consists of three separate components: The sound synthesiser (audio server), the programming language (and language interpreter) and the code editor (integrated development environment, or shortly, IDE). The number of channels requested must match the number of channels in the buffer. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Query the SuperCollider version. These "temporary" states accumulate within a single bundle -- so if you have nested calls to methods that use bundle-local error suppression, error posting remains off until all the layers have been unwrapped. Effects processes can be created and patched into a signal flow dynamically at scheduled times. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Equivalent to sclang's, Minor version number. They read input and write output to global audio and control buses. /b_gen does not accept a completion message as the final argument. See the Command Reference below. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node ends and is deallocated. Takes a list of pairs of bus indices and values and sets the buses to those values. cmd_c_getn = 41, Synths can send control signals to each other via a single global array of control buses. There are four ways to add the node to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows: Controls may be set when creating the synth. The audio server has the following features: Open Sound Control access See /usr/share/SuperCollider/Help/MIDIFile/MIDIFile-samplepatches.rtf for example usage. a unique number identifying this command. all the groups and synths contained within it, optionally including the current control values for synths. This command is used when the client no longer needs to communicate with the synth and wants to have the freedom to reuse the ID. No notification is sent when this occurs. ]. the low 32 bits of the original time stamp. When program execution ends, and control is returned to the SuperColliderinterpreter, the interpreter outputs the return value in the "SuperCollider output" pane. Time stamps are in the same format as defined by Open Sound Control : The top 32 bits are seconds since 1900 and the lower 32 bits represent the 32 bit fraction of one second. As b_allocRead, but reads individual channels into the allocated buffer in the order specified. Replies to the sender with a /g_queryTree.reply message listing all of the nodes contained within the group in the following format: N.B. Buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. Map a node's controls to read from audio buses. Parallel groups are relaxed groups, their child nodes are evaluated in unspecified order. cmd_n_run = 12, Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and audio bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global audio bus. This command will end non real time mode and close the sound file. Loads a directory of synth definitions files. If "leave file open" is set to one then the file is created, but no frames are written until the DiskOut ugen does so. cmd_d_load = 6, One of -u or -t must be supplied. Quit program. As b_read, but reads individual channels in the order specified. cmd_d_freeAll = 8, Commands. Audio buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. The audio input will taken from input-filename. There are two types, Synths and Groups. A Server object is a representation of a server application. 'supercollider:recompile' 'supercollider:open-post-window' 'supercollider:clear-post-window' 'supercollider:cmd-period' 'supercollider:eval' 'supercollider:boot-server' 'supercollider:quit-server' 'supercollider:kill-all-servers' If number of frames is less than zero, the entire file is read. The server reserves all negative IDs. ... install = no--nodoc-y--replaces = supercollider, supercollider-common, supercollider-ide, supercollider-language, supercollider-server, supercollider-supernova < br > First seven hex digits of the commit hash. It's all in that one file. A Group is a collection of Nodes represented as a linked list. Install supercollider-serverInstalling supercollider-server package on Debian Unstable (Sid) is as easy as running the following command on terminal:s cmd_s_getn = 45, Get contiguous ranges of samples. This command is purely for bookkeeping convenience of the client. Takes a list of buses and replies to sender with the corresponding /c_set command. All asynchronous commands send a reply to the client when they are completed. Causes a synth to print out the values of the inputs and outputs of its unit generators for one control period. All running modules are ordered in a tree of nodes that define an order of execution. Not all combinations of header format and sample format are possible. SuperCollider – Tutorial 04 (More Commands) Authored by Derek Shaw. the new node replaces the node specified by the add target ID. Sub-groups are not freed. Traverses all groups below this group and frees all the synths. For each range, the starting bus index is given followed by the number of channels to change, followed by the values. The control arguments are the same as for the n_set command. cmd_sync = 52, b.sine1(1.0/[1,2,3,4,5,6], true, false, true); //fill the Buffer with wavetable data. The synth server and its client(s) may be on the same machine or across a network. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. The git branch name and commit hash could be anything if the user has forked SC, so they should only be used for display and user interface purposes. The tree defines the order of execution of all Synths. This message now supports array type tags ($[ and $]) in the control/value component of the OSC message. Many asynchronous commands can contain an OSC message or bundle to be executed upon completion. The output file header-format should be one of: AIFF, WAVE, NeXT. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Using buses rather than connecting synths to each other directly allows synths to connect themselves to the community of other synths without having to know anything about them specifically. cmd_b_allocRead = 29, A node was turned off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately after node B. The server sends an /n_info message for each node to registered clients. int32 - the length in bytes of the following message. cmd_g_queryTree = 57, One suggestion is to make a clear distinction of a consistent class reference and other documentation. In most cases it is controlled from within the SuperCollider programming language, but it can be used independently. The Unit generator API is a simple C interface. a symbol argument consisting of the letter 'c' or 'a' (for control or audio) followed by the bus's index. Patching between modules is done through global audio and control buses. Query the status. Create a new group and add it to the tree of nodes. These flags can be added together to create a unique single integer flag that describes the true/false combinations for these three options: Fills a buffer with a series of sine wave partials. cmd_d_loadDir = 7, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. On other systems, such as a Mac, you can simply copy MIDIFile.sc into your SuperCollider Extensions directory (typically [$HOME]/Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/Extensions/ on Mac OS X). Similar to sine1 except that each partial frequency is specified explicitly instead of being an integer series of partials. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the values. See Node Notifications below for the format of the /n_info message. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the value to fill. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. Replies to sender with the corresponding /n_set command. A new Node may be added to the head or tail of the group. For each range, the starting control index is given followed by the number of controls to change, followed by the values. a string with tags defined by the types of the arguments to follow. If number of frames is less than zero, all samples from the starting frame to the end of the buffer are written. This is useful when debugging your command stream. These messages are sent by the server in response to some commands. and Server Command Reference. The cmd-filename should be a file that contains OSC bundles sorted in ascending time order. A command was received too late. While synthesis is running, new modules can be created, destroyed and repatched, sample buffers can be created and reallocated. Using this method to start and stop nodes can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time run flag is toggled. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Download SuperCollider 3d5.1. Thus child nodes (those contained within a group) are listed immediately following their parent. cmd_n_setn = 16, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to sets of values. The first float value specifies the amplitude for n = 1, the second float value specifies the amplitude for n = 2, and so on. 'c1'), number of channels (optional. cmd_n_cmd = 13, Replies to sender with /done when complete. Allocates buffer to number of channels of file and number of samples requested, or fewer if sound file is smaller than requested. add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If MIDI is desired, it is up to the client to receive it and convert it to appropriate OSC commands for the synth engine. The order of nodes corresponds to their execution order on the server. Currently only the server commands needed for the "vivid" package are supported. Start Applications >> Audio & Video >> JACK Control If top left Start button is Green select it This needs to start with no errors Start Applications >> Accessories >> Text Editor (Gedit) Start Tools >> SuperCollider mode Start from SuperCollider menu >> Start Server Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Unit generator definitions are Mach-O bundles (not to be confused with CFBundles). An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. cmd_dumpOSC = 39, the high 32 bits of the time it was executed. cmd_b_getn = 43, Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Takes a list of pairs of sample indices and values and sets the samples to those values. Loads a file of synth definitions. The Server has a graph of all the running Synths, which may be organised into Groups for convenience. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). Loads a file of synth definitions from a buffer in the message. Synth Definition files are created by the SuperCollider language application and are loaded into the synth server. Read sound file channel data into an existing buffer. Program name. The definition is removed immediately, and does not wait for synth nodes based on that definition to end. Plug-ins can define commands that operate on buffers. Allocate buffer space and read a sound file. The number of channels in the output file is specified with the -o argument. Sent only to the sender of the original message. The SuperCollider synthesis server (scsynth) SuperCollider's sound generation is bundled into an optimised command-line executable (named scsynth). previous node ID, -1 if no previous node. Output will be written to output-filename. Major version number. SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. Notify when async commands have completed. In a multi-client situation, the only way you can be sure what node -1 refers to is to put the messages in a bundle. Tutorials. If the first argument is 1, server will remember your return address and send you notifications; if 0, server will stop sending notifications. If you press Ctrl+Enter while the cursor is on the first line and then do the same on the second line, a 3 should appear in the Post window for each command. Equivalent to sclang's, Patch version name. In addition no notifications are sent when there are changes of state for this node, such as /go, /end, /on, /off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately before node B. any combination of arguments of types: int, float, string or bytes. How to add the new group according to following from SuperCollider Server Command Reference: 0 - add the new group to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format . The name of the virtual server to be removed. default = -1, see below), number of sequential samples to change (M). It forwards OSC messages and has a number of allocators that keep track of IDs for nodes, buses and buffers. On Fedora Linux, use MIDIFile.sc(installed in /usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MIDIFile/ by Planet CCRMA package supercollider-midifile). cmd_b_fill = 37, Recommended introductory tutorials: Scott Wilson’s SC tutorial - comes bundled with the SC download, as do some more tutorials (…plus here’s a quick reference based on Scott’s tutorial by Andrew McWilliams); Nick Collins’ SuperCollider tutorial has a 12 week course of tutorial files as browseable HTML, and is also available in a downloadable zip They are binary code libraries that are used as building blocks by Synths to build synthesis algorithms. Replies with a /synced message when all asynchronous commands received before this one have completed. These are the currently defined fill routines for use with the /b_gen command. cmd_b_readChannel = 55, An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. floating point and integer arguments are interpreted as control value. Map a node's controls to read from a bus. cmd_n_before = 18, MacOS9 getting source code for SC Server The reply will contain the sent unique ID. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). The bundle timestamp will establish the ending time of the file. It is expected that the client will send all control commands. NUMBER_OF_COMMANDS = 65 If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. SuperCollider. cmd_c_setn = 26, Stops a node abruptly, removes it from its group, and frees its memory. Create a new parallel group and add it to the tree of nodes. You can run sclang from the command line. audio music programming-language c-plus-plus sound supercollider synthesis C++ GPL-3.0 573 3,463 630 (46 issues need help) 37 Updated Nov 24, 2020. qpm They can be addressed and controlled by commands to the synthesis engine. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. The Nodes in a Group may be both Synths and other Groups. If reading a file to be used by DiskIn ugen then you will want to set "leave file open" to one, otherwise set it to zero. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_b_read = 30, a buffer of data preceded by a 32 bit length field and padded to a multiple of 4 bytes. If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. Frees all nodes in the group. cmd_u_cmd = 20, clear - if set then the buffer is cleared before new partials are written into it. cmd_g_head = 22, The job of scsynth (the server) is to handle all the sound generators, filters, and waveforms it has been told about and to calculate values to send to the sound card. Wesleyan nightly builds of SuperCollider Server for MacOS X; Download SuperCollider Server for MacOS X from Sourceforge. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. all the groups and synths contained within it. cmd_b_set = 35, cmd_n_after = 19, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Synths can have their own local controls that are set via commands to the server. If the audio bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Copy samples from the source buffer to the destination buffer specified in the b_gen command. Not yet implemented. Must be done before the internal server is booted. the high 32 bits of the original time stamp. At startup there is a top level group with an ID of zero that defines the root of the tree. Otherwise the new partials are summed with the existing contents of the buffer. Fills a buffer with a series of chebyshev polynomials, which can be defined as:cheby(n) = amplitude * cos(n * acos(x)). It is used to control scsynth (or supernova) from the SuperCollider language. Example¶ rm vserver lb_vip To remove multiple vservers, use the following command: rm vserver lb_vip[1-3] This command is sent to all registered clients in response to an /n_query command. Communicate to the SuperCollider language from IanniX. Use this command to remove a virtual server. b.plot; //stored shape (not in special SuperCollider Wavetable format, for clarity) a 32 bit single precision floating point number. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. cmd_d_recv = 5, cmd_s_get = 44, cmd_s_newargs = 59, Set contiguous ranges of buses to single values. This is the Mac OS 9 version. Class reference . turn off error posting until the next ['/error', 1] message. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node is turned on. add the new node to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_setn = 36, setSharedControl(num, value) - set the current value of a shared control bus to value. Clear all scheduled bundles. Your laptop. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to sets of values. Set contiguous ranges of control indices to single values. Since then it has been evolving into a system used and further developed by both scientists and artists working with sound. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. Replies to sender with the following message: The standard human-readable version string can be constructed by concatenating major_version ++ "." (See Server Guide, as well as Client vs Server for more details on the distinction.) Causes a group to print the node IDs and names of each node in the group for one control period. The job of sclang (the client) is to interpret the commands you give as written code, and to send instructions to scsynth on your behalf. the command name. That is not the issue. 1 to receive notifications, 0 to stop receiving them. Get contiguous ranges of buses. Post a representation of this group's node subtree.

Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file. Turn on or off error messages sent to the SuperCollider post window. cmd_b_write = 31, SuperCollider has a special efficient wavetable format to pack a buffer. (optional), number of sequential controls to change (M), the ID of the node before which the above is placed (B), the ID of the node after which the above is placed (B). SwingOSC is an OpenSoundControl (OSC) server intended for scripting Java(tm), such as to create graphical user interfaces with AWT/Swing classes. May be "scsynth" or "supernova". Request a representation of this group's node subtree, i.e. cmd_n_map = 14, Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file and writes it to the given starting frame in the buffer. A node was started. Commands are defined by unit generator plug ins. For convenience of client-side methods, you can also suppress errors temporarily, for the scope of a single bundle. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to single values. Since you don't know what the ID is, you cannot talk to this node directly later. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, audio bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Both may be supplied.-u udp-port-number a port number 0-65535.-t tcp-port-number a port number 0-65535-v verbosity Controls the verbosity of server messages. To eliminate a DC offset when used as a waveshaper, the wavetable is offset so that the center value is zero. This was an experimental version and is really a different program than version 2. You can see Synths and Groups being created just by looking at the Server graphics. NOTE: This command is deprecated.This command is deprecated in 10.0, instead you can use commands such as rm lb vserver. The target node is freed. Read sound file data into an existing buffer. There are four ways to add the group to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows (the same as for /s_new): Multiple groups may be created in one command by adding arguments. cmd_b_get = 42, flag; if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be posted, flag: if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be included, flag: if synth control values are included 1, else 0, number of child nodes contained within the requested group, number of child nodes contained within this node. Responds to the sender with a /b_info message. Move the listed nodes to the location specified by the target and add action, and place them in the order specified. cmd_cmd = 4, Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Exits the synthesis server. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a background thread to complete so as not to steal CPU time from the audio synthesis thread. cmd_n_query = 46, Unit Generator Definitions are plug-ins loaded automatically when the program starts. cmd_b_query = 47, -- Implementation of the "Server Command Reference" spec-- The spec changes very, very infrequently, but the reference is-- included in the source of this file-- -- Typically you want to import this qualified, e.g. More may be added to the end of the list in the future.enum { All commands are received via TCP or UDP using a simplified version of Open Sound Control (OSC). Command arguments have single character tags which occur in a tag string to identify their types. There was a problem. These messages are sent as notification of some event to all clients who have registered via the /notify command. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_n_order = 62, default = 0), number of frames to write (optional. Is it possible to call a long-running Supercollider script (including booting the server) from a Windows batch file, say, by calling sclang.exe with the Supercollider script as a command-line argument? This is only meant for setting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. cmd_version = 64, construct the node order just after the node specified by the add target ID. cmd_n_fill = 17, Buffers are used for wave tables, sample buffers, delay lines, envelopes, or for any other need which can use an array of floating point values. cmd_g_new = 21, cmd_b_allocReadChannel = 54, This is how you can map the controls of a node with an auto generated ID. Get contiguous ranges of controls. Buffers may be safely allocated, loaded and freed while synthesis is running, even while unit generators are using them. Synths send audio signals to each other via a single global array of audio buses. These are short notes on installing SuperCollider from source on a debian-based Linux distro … in 2019. The SuperCollider 3 Synth Server is a simple but powerful synthesis engine. as 'SCCmd',-- for 'SCCmd.quit', etc. In a SuperColliderprogram, it is the last value stated in a program that automatically becomes the return value - no special command is required. print the parsed contents of the message. It is descended from Smalltalk, considered by many to be the first completely object-oriented programming language. cmd_n_mapa = 60, The currently defined buffer fill commands are listed below in a separate section. One of -u or -t must be supplied. (optional) some commands provide other information, for example a buffer index. The synth server does not send or receive MIDI. eg. However, even if this is not done, the next bundle or message received will begin with the standard error posting status, as set by modes 0 or 1. The class reference would then only contain descriptions of the class, the methods and their arguments. A made a very serious "hmmmmmm" sound when I got to the bit about ports. It uses the reflection and beans mechanism to dynamically create instances of java classes and control t If the control bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. a 64 bit double precision floating point number. Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global control bus. add the new node to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_close = 33, cmd_g_freeAll = 24, cmd_g_dumpTree = 56, The server will reassign this synth to a reserved negative number. Set contiguous ranges of buses to sets of values. Buffers are arrays of 32 bit floating point values with a small descriptive header. Open commands in Atom with command-shift-P and type superc to filter by supercollider commands. cmd_n_free = 11, default = 1 channel), starting frame in file (optional. allocSharedControls(numControls) - set the number of shared control buses. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. See RootNode and Default Group for more info. All nodes have an integer ID. 1 - add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If you use ['/error', -1] within a self-bundling method, you should always close it with ['/error', -2] so that subsequent bundled messages will take the correct error posting status. If the server was booted from within SCLang (as opposed to from the command line) there will also be a 'default group' with an ID of 1 which is the default target for all new Nodes. cmd_notify = 1, cmd_status = 2, Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. Sends all arguments following the command name to the unit generator to be performed. So this is useful for nodes that are of finite duration and that get the control information they need from arguments and buses or messages directed to their group. long. a series of Commands each preceded by a 32-bit integer byte length. These are the currently defined command numbers. Adds the node to the tail (last to be executed) of the group. Replies to sender with the corresponding /b_setn command. not yet implemented. normalize - Normalize peak amplitude of wave to 1.0. wavetable - If set, then the buffer is written in wavetable format so that it can be read by interpolating oscillators. ["/d_load", "synthdefs/void.scsyndef", If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Allocates zero filled buffer to number of channels and samples. Similar to sine2 except that each partial may have a nonzero starting phase. Reply to /n_query. default = -1, see below), starting frame in buffer (optional. name: vivid-supercollider version: 0.3.0.0 synopsis: Implementation of SuperCollider server specifications description: An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. default = 0, see below), number of frames to read (optional. cmd_b_gen = 38, If you use a node ID of -1 for any other command, such as /n_map, then it refers to the most recently created node by /s_new (auto generated ID or not). If the channels argument is absent or empty all channels are read in the order they appear in the file. Since version 3.6 SuperCollider consists of three separate components: The sound synthesiser (audio server), the programming language (and language interpreter) and the code editor (integrated development environment, or shortly, IDE). The number of channels requested must match the number of channels in the buffer. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Query the SuperCollider version. These "temporary" states accumulate within a single bundle -- so if you have nested calls to methods that use bundle-local error suppression, error posting remains off until all the layers have been unwrapped. Effects processes can be created and patched into a signal flow dynamically at scheduled times. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Equivalent to sclang's, Minor version number. They read input and write output to global audio and control buses. /b_gen does not accept a completion message as the final argument. See the Command Reference below. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node ends and is deallocated. Takes a list of pairs of bus indices and values and sets the buses to those values. cmd_c_getn = 41, Synths can send control signals to each other via a single global array of control buses. There are four ways to add the node to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows: Controls may be set when creating the synth. The audio server has the following features: Open Sound Control access See /usr/share/SuperCollider/Help/MIDIFile/MIDIFile-samplepatches.rtf for example usage. a unique number identifying this command. all the groups and synths contained within it, optionally including the current control values for synths. This command is used when the client no longer needs to communicate with the synth and wants to have the freedom to reuse the ID. No notification is sent when this occurs. ]. the low 32 bits of the original time stamp. When program execution ends, and control is returned to the SuperColliderinterpreter, the interpreter outputs the return value in the "SuperCollider output" pane. Time stamps are in the same format as defined by Open Sound Control : The top 32 bits are seconds since 1900 and the lower 32 bits represent the 32 bit fraction of one second. As b_allocRead, but reads individual channels into the allocated buffer in the order specified. Replies to the sender with a /g_queryTree.reply message listing all of the nodes contained within the group in the following format: N.B. Buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. Map a node's controls to read from audio buses. Parallel groups are relaxed groups, their child nodes are evaluated in unspecified order. cmd_n_run = 12, Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and audio bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global audio bus. This command will end non real time mode and close the sound file. Loads a directory of synth definitions files. If "leave file open" is set to one then the file is created, but no frames are written until the DiskOut ugen does so. cmd_d_load = 6, One of -u or -t must be supplied. Quit program. As b_read, but reads individual channels in the order specified. cmd_d_freeAll = 8, Commands. Audio buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. The audio input will taken from input-filename. There are two types, Synths and Groups. A Server object is a representation of a server application. 'supercollider:recompile' 'supercollider:open-post-window' 'supercollider:clear-post-window' 'supercollider:cmd-period' 'supercollider:eval' 'supercollider:boot-server' 'supercollider:quit-server' 'supercollider:kill-all-servers' If number of frames is less than zero, the entire file is read. The server reserves all negative IDs. ... install = no--nodoc-y--replaces = supercollider, supercollider-common, supercollider-ide, supercollider-language, supercollider-server, supercollider-supernova < br > First seven hex digits of the commit hash. It's all in that one file. A Group is a collection of Nodes represented as a linked list. Install supercollider-serverInstalling supercollider-server package on Debian Unstable (Sid) is as easy as running the following command on terminal:s cmd_s_getn = 45, Get contiguous ranges of samples. This command is purely for bookkeeping convenience of the client. Takes a list of buses and replies to sender with the corresponding /c_set command. All asynchronous commands send a reply to the client when they are completed. Causes a synth to print out the values of the inputs and outputs of its unit generators for one control period. All running modules are ordered in a tree of nodes that define an order of execution. Not all combinations of header format and sample format are possible. SuperCollider – Tutorial 04 (More Commands) Authored by Derek Shaw. the new node replaces the node specified by the add target ID. Sub-groups are not freed. Traverses all groups below this group and frees all the synths. For each range, the starting bus index is given followed by the number of channels to change, followed by the values. The control arguments are the same as for the n_set command. cmd_sync = 52, b.sine1(1.0/[1,2,3,4,5,6], true, false, true); //fill the Buffer with wavetable data. The synth server and its client(s) may be on the same machine or across a network. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. The git branch name and commit hash could be anything if the user has forked SC, so they should only be used for display and user interface purposes. The tree defines the order of execution of all Synths. This message now supports array type tags ($[ and $]) in the control/value component of the OSC message. Many asynchronous commands can contain an OSC message or bundle to be executed upon completion. The output file header-format should be one of: AIFF, WAVE, NeXT. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Using buses rather than connecting synths to each other directly allows synths to connect themselves to the community of other synths without having to know anything about them specifically. cmd_b_allocRead = 29, A node was turned off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately after node B. The server sends an /n_info message for each node to registered clients. int32 - the length in bytes of the following message. cmd_g_queryTree = 57, One suggestion is to make a clear distinction of a consistent class reference and other documentation. In most cases it is controlled from within the SuperCollider programming language, but it can be used independently. The Unit generator API is a simple C interface. a symbol argument consisting of the letter 'c' or 'a' (for control or audio) followed by the bus's index. Patching between modules is done through global audio and control buses. Query the status. Create a new group and add it to the tree of nodes. These flags can be added together to create a unique single integer flag that describes the true/false combinations for these three options: Fills a buffer with a series of sine wave partials. cmd_d_loadDir = 7, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. On other systems, such as a Mac, you can simply copy MIDIFile.sc into your SuperCollider Extensions directory (typically [$HOME]/Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/Extensions/ on Mac OS X). Similar to sine1 except that each partial frequency is specified explicitly instead of being an integer series of partials. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the values. See Node Notifications below for the format of the /n_info message. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the value to fill. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. Replies to sender with the corresponding /n_set command. A new Node may be added to the head or tail of the group. For each range, the starting control index is given followed by the number of controls to change, followed by the values. a string with tags defined by the types of the arguments to follow. If number of frames is less than zero, all samples from the starting frame to the end of the buffer are written. This is useful when debugging your command stream. These messages are sent by the server in response to some commands. and Server Command Reference. The cmd-filename should be a file that contains OSC bundles sorted in ascending time order. A command was received too late. While synthesis is running, new modules can be created, destroyed and repatched, sample buffers can be created and reallocated. Using this method to start and stop nodes can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time run flag is toggled. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Download SuperCollider 3d5.1. Thus child nodes (those contained within a group) are listed immediately following their parent. cmd_n_setn = 16, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to sets of values. The first float value specifies the amplitude for n = 1, the second float value specifies the amplitude for n = 2, and so on. 'c1'), number of channels (optional. cmd_n_cmd = 13, Replies to sender with /done when complete. Allocates buffer to number of channels of file and number of samples requested, or fewer if sound file is smaller than requested. add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If MIDI is desired, it is up to the client to receive it and convert it to appropriate OSC commands for the synth engine. The order of nodes corresponds to their execution order on the server. Currently only the server commands needed for the "vivid" package are supported. Start Applications >> Audio & Video >> JACK Control If top left Start button is Green select it This needs to start with no errors Start Applications >> Accessories >> Text Editor (Gedit) Start Tools >> SuperCollider mode Start from SuperCollider menu >> Start Server Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Unit generator definitions are Mach-O bundles (not to be confused with CFBundles). An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. cmd_dumpOSC = 39, the high 32 bits of the time it was executed. cmd_b_getn = 43, Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Takes a list of pairs of sample indices and values and sets the samples to those values. Loads a file of synth definitions. The Server has a graph of all the running Synths, which may be organised into Groups for convenience. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). Loads a file of synth definitions from a buffer in the message. Synth Definition files are created by the SuperCollider language application and are loaded into the synth server. Read sound file channel data into an existing buffer. Program name. The definition is removed immediately, and does not wait for synth nodes based on that definition to end. Plug-ins can define commands that operate on buffers. Allocate buffer space and read a sound file. The number of channels in the output file is specified with the -o argument. Sent only to the sender of the original message. The SuperCollider synthesis server (scsynth) SuperCollider's sound generation is bundled into an optimised command-line executable (named scsynth). previous node ID, -1 if no previous node. Output will be written to output-filename. Major version number. SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. Notify when async commands have completed. In a multi-client situation, the only way you can be sure what node -1 refers to is to put the messages in a bundle. Tutorials. If the first argument is 1, server will remember your return address and send you notifications; if 0, server will stop sending notifications. If you press Ctrl+Enter while the cursor is on the first line and then do the same on the second line, a 3 should appear in the Post window for each command. Equivalent to sclang's, Patch version name. In addition no notifications are sent when there are changes of state for this node, such as /go, /end, /on, /off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately before node B. any combination of arguments of types: int, float, string or bytes. How to add the new group according to following from SuperCollider Server Command Reference: 0 - add the new group to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format . The name of the virtual server to be removed. default = -1, see below), number of sequential samples to change (M). It forwards OSC messages and has a number of allocators that keep track of IDs for nodes, buses and buffers. On Fedora Linux, use MIDIFile.sc(installed in /usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MIDIFile/ by Planet CCRMA package supercollider-midifile). cmd_b_fill = 37, Recommended introductory tutorials: Scott Wilson’s SC tutorial - comes bundled with the SC download, as do some more tutorials (…plus here’s a quick reference based on Scott’s tutorial by Andrew McWilliams); Nick Collins’ SuperCollider tutorial has a 12 week course of tutorial files as browseable HTML, and is also available in a downloadable zip They are binary code libraries that are used as building blocks by Synths to build synthesis algorithms. Replies with a /synced message when all asynchronous commands received before this one have completed. These are the currently defined fill routines for use with the /b_gen command. cmd_b_readChannel = 55, An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. floating point and integer arguments are interpreted as control value. Map a node's controls to read from a bus. cmd_n_before = 18, MacOS9 getting source code for SC Server The reply will contain the sent unique ID. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). The bundle timestamp will establish the ending time of the file. It is expected that the client will send all control commands. NUMBER_OF_COMMANDS = 65 If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. SuperCollider. cmd_c_setn = 26, Stops a node abruptly, removes it from its group, and frees its memory. Create a new parallel group and add it to the tree of nodes. You can run sclang from the command line. audio music programming-language c-plus-plus sound supercollider synthesis C++ GPL-3.0 573 3,463 630 (46 issues need help) 37 Updated Nov 24, 2020. qpm They can be addressed and controlled by commands to the synthesis engine. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. The Nodes in a Group may be both Synths and other Groups. If reading a file to be used by DiskIn ugen then you will want to set "leave file open" to one, otherwise set it to zero. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_b_read = 30, a buffer of data preceded by a 32 bit length field and padded to a multiple of 4 bytes. If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. Frees all nodes in the group. cmd_u_cmd = 20, clear - if set then the buffer is cleared before new partials are written into it. cmd_g_head = 22, The job of scsynth (the server) is to handle all the sound generators, filters, and waveforms it has been told about and to calculate values to send to the sound card. Wesleyan nightly builds of SuperCollider Server for MacOS X; Download SuperCollider Server for MacOS X from Sourceforge. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. all the groups and synths contained within it. cmd_b_set = 35, cmd_n_after = 19, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Synths can have their own local controls that are set via commands to the server. If the audio bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Copy samples from the source buffer to the destination buffer specified in the b_gen command. Not yet implemented. Must be done before the internal server is booted. the high 32 bits of the original time stamp. At startup there is a top level group with an ID of zero that defines the root of the tree. Otherwise the new partials are summed with the existing contents of the buffer. Fills a buffer with a series of chebyshev polynomials, which can be defined as:cheby(n) = amplitude * cos(n * acos(x)). It is used to control scsynth (or supernova) from the SuperCollider language. Example¶ rm vserver lb_vip To remove multiple vservers, use the following command: rm vserver lb_vip[1-3] This command is sent to all registered clients in response to an /n_query command. Communicate to the SuperCollider language from IanniX. Use this command to remove a virtual server. b.plot; //stored shape (not in special SuperCollider Wavetable format, for clarity) a 32 bit single precision floating point number. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. cmd_d_recv = 5, cmd_s_get = 44, cmd_s_newargs = 59, Set contiguous ranges of buses to single values. This is the Mac OS 9 version. Class reference . turn off error posting until the next ['/error', 1] message. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node is turned on. add the new node to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_setn = 36, setSharedControl(num, value) - set the current value of a shared control bus to value. Clear all scheduled bundles. Your laptop. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to sets of values. Set contiguous ranges of control indices to single values. Since then it has been evolving into a system used and further developed by both scientists and artists working with sound. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. Replies to sender with the following message: The standard human-readable version string can be constructed by concatenating major_version ++ "." (See Server Guide, as well as Client vs Server for more details on the distinction.) Causes a group to print the node IDs and names of each node in the group for one control period. The job of sclang (the client) is to interpret the commands you give as written code, and to send instructions to scsynth on your behalf. the command name. That is not the issue. 1 to receive notifications, 0 to stop receiving them. Get contiguous ranges of buses. Post a representation of this group's node subtree.

supercollider server command reference


The lowest numbered buses get written to the audio hardware outputs. num is the index of the bus to set. Nodes which have already been freed will be ignored. Equivalent to the sclang code. Unit Generator Definitions have names that match the names of SuperCollider language classes used in building Synth Definitions. On Windows though, if sclang is not started from the sclang folder (working directory), sclang will not find the server. b = Buffer.alloc(s, 512, 1); //make a Buffer storage area. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a … You. Synth Definitions are referred to by name. If cmd-filename is the underscore character _, then OSC will be streamed from standard input. ["/s_new", "void", 1001, 1, 0] // completion message Messages are similar in format to Open Sound Control messages, except that pattern matching of the command name is not performed. This is only meant for getting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. an OSC message to execute upon completion. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. cmd_n_mapan = 61, The trigger ID and value are determined by inputs to the SendTrig unit generator which is the originator of this message. A node was turned on. print both the parsed and hexadecimal representations of the contents. If the run flag is set back to one, then it will be executed. If -1 this is a synth, if >=0 it's a group, value or control bus mapping symbol (e.g. a 64 bit integer. Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file. Turn on or off error messages sent to the SuperCollider post window. cmd_b_write = 31, SuperCollider has a special efficient wavetable format to pack a buffer. (optional), number of sequential controls to change (M), the ID of the node before which the above is placed (B), the ID of the node after which the above is placed (B). SwingOSC is an OpenSoundControl (OSC) server intended for scripting Java(tm), such as to create graphical user interfaces with AWT/Swing classes. May be "scsynth" or "supernova". Request a representation of this group's node subtree, i.e. cmd_n_map = 14, Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file and writes it to the given starting frame in the buffer. A node was started. Commands are defined by unit generator plug ins. For convenience of client-side methods, you can also suppress errors temporarily, for the scope of a single bundle. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to single values. Since you don't know what the ID is, you cannot talk to this node directly later. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, audio bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Both may be supplied.-u udp-port-number a port number 0-65535.-t tcp-port-number a port number 0-65535-v verbosity Controls the verbosity of server messages. To eliminate a DC offset when used as a waveshaper, the wavetable is offset so that the center value is zero. This was an experimental version and is really a different program than version 2. You can see Synths and Groups being created just by looking at the Server graphics. NOTE: This command is deprecated.This command is deprecated in 10.0, instead you can use commands such as rm lb vserver. The target node is freed. Read sound file data into an existing buffer. There are four ways to add the group to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows (the same as for /s_new): Multiple groups may be created in one command by adding arguments. cmd_b_get = 42, flag; if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be posted, flag: if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be included, flag: if synth control values are included 1, else 0, number of child nodes contained within the requested group, number of child nodes contained within this node. Responds to the sender with a /b_info message. Move the listed nodes to the location specified by the target and add action, and place them in the order specified. cmd_cmd = 4, Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Exits the synthesis server. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a background thread to complete so as not to steal CPU time from the audio synthesis thread. cmd_n_query = 46, Unit Generator Definitions are plug-ins loaded automatically when the program starts. cmd_b_query = 47, -- Implementation of the "Server Command Reference" spec-- The spec changes very, very infrequently, but the reference is-- included in the source of this file-- -- Typically you want to import this qualified, e.g. More may be added to the end of the list in the future.enum { All commands are received via TCP or UDP using a simplified version of Open Sound Control (OSC). Command arguments have single character tags which occur in a tag string to identify their types. There was a problem. These messages are sent as notification of some event to all clients who have registered via the /notify command. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_n_order = 62, default = 0), number of frames to write (optional. Is it possible to call a long-running Supercollider script (including booting the server) from a Windows batch file, say, by calling sclang.exe with the Supercollider script as a command-line argument? This is only meant for setting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. cmd_version = 64, construct the node order just after the node specified by the add target ID. cmd_n_fill = 17, Buffers are used for wave tables, sample buffers, delay lines, envelopes, or for any other need which can use an array of floating point values. cmd_g_new = 21, cmd_b_allocReadChannel = 54, This is how you can map the controls of a node with an auto generated ID. Get contiguous ranges of controls. Buffers may be safely allocated, loaded and freed while synthesis is running, even while unit generators are using them. Synths send audio signals to each other via a single global array of audio buses. These are short notes on installing SuperCollider from source on a debian-based Linux distro … in 2019. The SuperCollider 3 Synth Server is a simple but powerful synthesis engine. as 'SCCmd',-- for 'SCCmd.quit', etc. In a SuperColliderprogram, it is the last value stated in a program that automatically becomes the return value - no special command is required. print the parsed contents of the message. It is descended from Smalltalk, considered by many to be the first completely object-oriented programming language. cmd_n_mapa = 60, The currently defined buffer fill commands are listed below in a separate section. One of -u or -t must be supplied. (optional) some commands provide other information, for example a buffer index. The synth server does not send or receive MIDI. eg. However, even if this is not done, the next bundle or message received will begin with the standard error posting status, as set by modes 0 or 1. The class reference would then only contain descriptions of the class, the methods and their arguments. A made a very serious "hmmmmmm" sound when I got to the bit about ports. It uses the reflection and beans mechanism to dynamically create instances of java classes and control t If the control bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. a 64 bit double precision floating point number. Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global control bus. add the new node to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_close = 33, cmd_g_freeAll = 24, cmd_g_dumpTree = 56, The server will reassign this synth to a reserved negative number. Set contiguous ranges of buses to sets of values. Buffers are arrays of 32 bit floating point values with a small descriptive header. Open commands in Atom with command-shift-P and type superc to filter by supercollider commands. cmd_n_free = 11, default = 1 channel), starting frame in file (optional. allocSharedControls(numControls) - set the number of shared control buses. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. See RootNode and Default Group for more info. All nodes have an integer ID. 1 - add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If you use ['/error', -1] within a self-bundling method, you should always close it with ['/error', -2] so that subsequent bundled messages will take the correct error posting status. If the server was booted from within SCLang (as opposed to from the command line) there will also be a 'default group' with an ID of 1 which is the default target for all new Nodes. cmd_notify = 1, cmd_status = 2, Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. Sends all arguments following the command name to the unit generator to be performed. So this is useful for nodes that are of finite duration and that get the control information they need from arguments and buses or messages directed to their group. long. a series of Commands each preceded by a 32-bit integer byte length. These are the currently defined command numbers. Adds the node to the tail (last to be executed) of the group. Replies to sender with the corresponding /b_setn command. not yet implemented. normalize - Normalize peak amplitude of wave to 1.0. wavetable - If set, then the buffer is written in wavetable format so that it can be read by interpolating oscillators. ["/d_load", "synthdefs/void.scsyndef", If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Allocates zero filled buffer to number of channels and samples. Similar to sine2 except that each partial may have a nonzero starting phase. Reply to /n_query. default = -1, see below), starting frame in buffer (optional. name: vivid-supercollider version: 0.3.0.0 synopsis: Implementation of SuperCollider server specifications description: An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. default = 0, see below), number of frames to read (optional. cmd_b_gen = 38, If you use a node ID of -1 for any other command, such as /n_map, then it refers to the most recently created node by /s_new (auto generated ID or not). If the channels argument is absent or empty all channels are read in the order they appear in the file. Since version 3.6 SuperCollider consists of three separate components: The sound synthesiser (audio server), the programming language (and language interpreter) and the code editor (integrated development environment, or shortly, IDE). The number of channels requested must match the number of channels in the buffer. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Query the SuperCollider version. These "temporary" states accumulate within a single bundle -- so if you have nested calls to methods that use bundle-local error suppression, error posting remains off until all the layers have been unwrapped. Effects processes can be created and patched into a signal flow dynamically at scheduled times. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Equivalent to sclang's, Minor version number. They read input and write output to global audio and control buses. /b_gen does not accept a completion message as the final argument. See the Command Reference below. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node ends and is deallocated. Takes a list of pairs of bus indices and values and sets the buses to those values. cmd_c_getn = 41, Synths can send control signals to each other via a single global array of control buses. There are four ways to add the node to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows: Controls may be set when creating the synth. The audio server has the following features: Open Sound Control access See /usr/share/SuperCollider/Help/MIDIFile/MIDIFile-samplepatches.rtf for example usage. a unique number identifying this command. all the groups and synths contained within it, optionally including the current control values for synths. This command is used when the client no longer needs to communicate with the synth and wants to have the freedom to reuse the ID. No notification is sent when this occurs. ]. the low 32 bits of the original time stamp. When program execution ends, and control is returned to the SuperColliderinterpreter, the interpreter outputs the return value in the "SuperCollider output" pane. Time stamps are in the same format as defined by Open Sound Control : The top 32 bits are seconds since 1900 and the lower 32 bits represent the 32 bit fraction of one second. As b_allocRead, but reads individual channels into the allocated buffer in the order specified. Replies to the sender with a /g_queryTree.reply message listing all of the nodes contained within the group in the following format: N.B. Buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. Map a node's controls to read from audio buses. Parallel groups are relaxed groups, their child nodes are evaluated in unspecified order. cmd_n_run = 12, Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and audio bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global audio bus. This command will end non real time mode and close the sound file. Loads a directory of synth definitions files. If "leave file open" is set to one then the file is created, but no frames are written until the DiskOut ugen does so. cmd_d_load = 6, One of -u or -t must be supplied. Quit program. As b_read, but reads individual channels in the order specified. cmd_d_freeAll = 8, Commands. Audio buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. The audio input will taken from input-filename. There are two types, Synths and Groups. A Server object is a representation of a server application. 'supercollider:recompile' 'supercollider:open-post-window' 'supercollider:clear-post-window' 'supercollider:cmd-period' 'supercollider:eval' 'supercollider:boot-server' 'supercollider:quit-server' 'supercollider:kill-all-servers' If number of frames is less than zero, the entire file is read. The server reserves all negative IDs. ... install = no--nodoc-y--replaces = supercollider, supercollider-common, supercollider-ide, supercollider-language, supercollider-server, supercollider-supernova < br > First seven hex digits of the commit hash. It's all in that one file. A Group is a collection of Nodes represented as a linked list. Install supercollider-serverInstalling supercollider-server package on Debian Unstable (Sid) is as easy as running the following command on terminal:s cmd_s_getn = 45, Get contiguous ranges of samples. This command is purely for bookkeeping convenience of the client. Takes a list of buses and replies to sender with the corresponding /c_set command. All asynchronous commands send a reply to the client when they are completed. Causes a synth to print out the values of the inputs and outputs of its unit generators for one control period. All running modules are ordered in a tree of nodes that define an order of execution. Not all combinations of header format and sample format are possible. SuperCollider – Tutorial 04 (More Commands) Authored by Derek Shaw. the new node replaces the node specified by the add target ID. Sub-groups are not freed. Traverses all groups below this group and frees all the synths. For each range, the starting bus index is given followed by the number of channels to change, followed by the values. The control arguments are the same as for the n_set command. cmd_sync = 52, b.sine1(1.0/[1,2,3,4,5,6], true, false, true); //fill the Buffer with wavetable data. The synth server and its client(s) may be on the same machine or across a network. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. The git branch name and commit hash could be anything if the user has forked SC, so they should only be used for display and user interface purposes. The tree defines the order of execution of all Synths. This message now supports array type tags ($[ and $]) in the control/value component of the OSC message. Many asynchronous commands can contain an OSC message or bundle to be executed upon completion. The output file header-format should be one of: AIFF, WAVE, NeXT. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Using buses rather than connecting synths to each other directly allows synths to connect themselves to the community of other synths without having to know anything about them specifically. cmd_b_allocRead = 29, A node was turned off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately after node B. The server sends an /n_info message for each node to registered clients. int32 - the length in bytes of the following message. cmd_g_queryTree = 57, One suggestion is to make a clear distinction of a consistent class reference and other documentation. In most cases it is controlled from within the SuperCollider programming language, but it can be used independently. The Unit generator API is a simple C interface. a symbol argument consisting of the letter 'c' or 'a' (for control or audio) followed by the bus's index. Patching between modules is done through global audio and control buses. Query the status. Create a new group and add it to the tree of nodes. These flags can be added together to create a unique single integer flag that describes the true/false combinations for these three options: Fills a buffer with a series of sine wave partials. cmd_d_loadDir = 7, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. On other systems, such as a Mac, you can simply copy MIDIFile.sc into your SuperCollider Extensions directory (typically [$HOME]/Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/Extensions/ on Mac OS X). Similar to sine1 except that each partial frequency is specified explicitly instead of being an integer series of partials. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the values. See Node Notifications below for the format of the /n_info message. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the value to fill. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. Replies to sender with the corresponding /n_set command. A new Node may be added to the head or tail of the group. For each range, the starting control index is given followed by the number of controls to change, followed by the values. a string with tags defined by the types of the arguments to follow. If number of frames is less than zero, all samples from the starting frame to the end of the buffer are written. This is useful when debugging your command stream. These messages are sent by the server in response to some commands. and Server Command Reference. The cmd-filename should be a file that contains OSC bundles sorted in ascending time order. A command was received too late. While synthesis is running, new modules can be created, destroyed and repatched, sample buffers can be created and reallocated. Using this method to start and stop nodes can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time run flag is toggled. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Download SuperCollider 3d5.1. Thus child nodes (those contained within a group) are listed immediately following their parent. cmd_n_setn = 16, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to sets of values. The first float value specifies the amplitude for n = 1, the second float value specifies the amplitude for n = 2, and so on. 'c1'), number of channels (optional. cmd_n_cmd = 13, Replies to sender with /done when complete. Allocates buffer to number of channels of file and number of samples requested, or fewer if sound file is smaller than requested. add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If MIDI is desired, it is up to the client to receive it and convert it to appropriate OSC commands for the synth engine. The order of nodes corresponds to their execution order on the server. Currently only the server commands needed for the "vivid" package are supported. Start Applications >> Audio & Video >> JACK Control If top left Start button is Green select it This needs to start with no errors Start Applications >> Accessories >> Text Editor (Gedit) Start Tools >> SuperCollider mode Start from SuperCollider menu >> Start Server Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Unit generator definitions are Mach-O bundles (not to be confused with CFBundles). An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. cmd_dumpOSC = 39, the high 32 bits of the time it was executed. cmd_b_getn = 43, Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Takes a list of pairs of sample indices and values and sets the samples to those values. Loads a file of synth definitions. The Server has a graph of all the running Synths, which may be organised into Groups for convenience. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). Loads a file of synth definitions from a buffer in the message. Synth Definition files are created by the SuperCollider language application and are loaded into the synth server. Read sound file channel data into an existing buffer. Program name. The definition is removed immediately, and does not wait for synth nodes based on that definition to end. Plug-ins can define commands that operate on buffers. Allocate buffer space and read a sound file. The number of channels in the output file is specified with the -o argument. Sent only to the sender of the original message. The SuperCollider synthesis server (scsynth) SuperCollider's sound generation is bundled into an optimised command-line executable (named scsynth). previous node ID, -1 if no previous node. Output will be written to output-filename. Major version number. SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. Notify when async commands have completed. In a multi-client situation, the only way you can be sure what node -1 refers to is to put the messages in a bundle. Tutorials. If the first argument is 1, server will remember your return address and send you notifications; if 0, server will stop sending notifications. If you press Ctrl+Enter while the cursor is on the first line and then do the same on the second line, a 3 should appear in the Post window for each command. Equivalent to sclang's, Patch version name. In addition no notifications are sent when there are changes of state for this node, such as /go, /end, /on, /off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately before node B. any combination of arguments of types: int, float, string or bytes. How to add the new group according to following from SuperCollider Server Command Reference: 0 - add the new group to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format . The name of the virtual server to be removed. default = -1, see below), number of sequential samples to change (M). It forwards OSC messages and has a number of allocators that keep track of IDs for nodes, buses and buffers. On Fedora Linux, use MIDIFile.sc(installed in /usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MIDIFile/ by Planet CCRMA package supercollider-midifile). cmd_b_fill = 37, Recommended introductory tutorials: Scott Wilson’s SC tutorial - comes bundled with the SC download, as do some more tutorials (…plus here’s a quick reference based on Scott’s tutorial by Andrew McWilliams); Nick Collins’ SuperCollider tutorial has a 12 week course of tutorial files as browseable HTML, and is also available in a downloadable zip They are binary code libraries that are used as building blocks by Synths to build synthesis algorithms. Replies with a /synced message when all asynchronous commands received before this one have completed. These are the currently defined fill routines for use with the /b_gen command. cmd_b_readChannel = 55, An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. floating point and integer arguments are interpreted as control value. Map a node's controls to read from a bus. cmd_n_before = 18, MacOS9 getting source code for SC Server The reply will contain the sent unique ID. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). The bundle timestamp will establish the ending time of the file. It is expected that the client will send all control commands. NUMBER_OF_COMMANDS = 65 If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. SuperCollider. cmd_c_setn = 26, Stops a node abruptly, removes it from its group, and frees its memory. Create a new parallel group and add it to the tree of nodes. You can run sclang from the command line. audio music programming-language c-plus-plus sound supercollider synthesis C++ GPL-3.0 573 3,463 630 (46 issues need help) 37 Updated Nov 24, 2020. qpm They can be addressed and controlled by commands to the synthesis engine. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. The Nodes in a Group may be both Synths and other Groups. If reading a file to be used by DiskIn ugen then you will want to set "leave file open" to one, otherwise set it to zero. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_b_read = 30, a buffer of data preceded by a 32 bit length field and padded to a multiple of 4 bytes. If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. Frees all nodes in the group. cmd_u_cmd = 20, clear - if set then the buffer is cleared before new partials are written into it. cmd_g_head = 22, The job of scsynth (the server) is to handle all the sound generators, filters, and waveforms it has been told about and to calculate values to send to the sound card. Wesleyan nightly builds of SuperCollider Server for MacOS X; Download SuperCollider Server for MacOS X from Sourceforge. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. all the groups and synths contained within it. cmd_b_set = 35, cmd_n_after = 19, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Synths can have their own local controls that are set via commands to the server. If the audio bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Copy samples from the source buffer to the destination buffer specified in the b_gen command. Not yet implemented. Must be done before the internal server is booted. the high 32 bits of the original time stamp. At startup there is a top level group with an ID of zero that defines the root of the tree. Otherwise the new partials are summed with the existing contents of the buffer. Fills a buffer with a series of chebyshev polynomials, which can be defined as:cheby(n) = amplitude * cos(n * acos(x)). It is used to control scsynth (or supernova) from the SuperCollider language. Example¶ rm vserver lb_vip To remove multiple vservers, use the following command: rm vserver lb_vip[1-3] This command is sent to all registered clients in response to an /n_query command. Communicate to the SuperCollider language from IanniX. Use this command to remove a virtual server. b.plot; //stored shape (not in special SuperCollider Wavetable format, for clarity) a 32 bit single precision floating point number.

Clear all scheduled bundles. Your laptop. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to sets of values. Set contiguous ranges of control indices to single values. Since then it has been evolving into a system used and further developed by both scientists and artists working with sound. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. Replies to sender with the following message: The standard human-readable version string can be constructed by concatenating major_version ++ "." (See Server Guide, as well as Client vs Server for more details on the distinction.) Causes a group to print the node IDs and names of each node in the group for one control period.

supercollider server command reference


The lowest numbered buses get written to the audio hardware outputs. num is the index of the bus to set. Nodes which have already been freed will be ignored. Equivalent to the sclang code. Unit Generator Definitions have names that match the names of SuperCollider language classes used in building Synth Definitions. On Windows though, if sclang is not started from the sclang folder (working directory), sclang will not find the server. b = Buffer.alloc(s, 512, 1); //make a Buffer storage area. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a … You. Synth Definitions are referred to by name. If cmd-filename is the underscore character _, then OSC will be streamed from standard input. ["/s_new", "void", 1001, 1, 0] // completion message Messages are similar in format to Open Sound Control messages, except that pattern matching of the command name is not performed. This is only meant for getting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. an OSC message to execute upon completion. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. cmd_n_mapan = 61, The trigger ID and value are determined by inputs to the SendTrig unit generator which is the originator of this message. A node was turned on. print both the parsed and hexadecimal representations of the contents. If the run flag is set back to one, then it will be executed. If -1 this is a synth, if >=0 it's a group, value or control bus mapping symbol (e.g. a 64 bit integer. Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file. Turn on or off error messages sent to the SuperCollider post window. cmd_b_write = 31, SuperCollider has a special efficient wavetable format to pack a buffer. (optional), number of sequential controls to change (M), the ID of the node before which the above is placed (B), the ID of the node after which the above is placed (B). SwingOSC is an OpenSoundControl (OSC) server intended for scripting Java(tm), such as to create graphical user interfaces with AWT/Swing classes. May be "scsynth" or "supernova". Request a representation of this group's node subtree, i.e. cmd_n_map = 14, Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file and writes it to the given starting frame in the buffer. A node was started. Commands are defined by unit generator plug ins. For convenience of client-side methods, you can also suppress errors temporarily, for the scope of a single bundle. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to single values. Since you don't know what the ID is, you cannot talk to this node directly later. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, audio bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Both may be supplied.-u udp-port-number a port number 0-65535.-t tcp-port-number a port number 0-65535-v verbosity Controls the verbosity of server messages. To eliminate a DC offset when used as a waveshaper, the wavetable is offset so that the center value is zero. This was an experimental version and is really a different program than version 2. You can see Synths and Groups being created just by looking at the Server graphics. NOTE: This command is deprecated.This command is deprecated in 10.0, instead you can use commands such as rm lb vserver. The target node is freed. Read sound file data into an existing buffer. There are four ways to add the group to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows (the same as for /s_new): Multiple groups may be created in one command by adding arguments. cmd_b_get = 42, flag; if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be posted, flag: if not 0 the current control (arg) values for synths will be included, flag: if synth control values are included 1, else 0, number of child nodes contained within the requested group, number of child nodes contained within this node. Responds to the sender with a /b_info message. Move the listed nodes to the location specified by the target and add action, and place them in the order specified. cmd_cmd = 4, Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. Exits the synthesis server. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a background thread to complete so as not to steal CPU time from the audio synthesis thread. cmd_n_query = 46, Unit Generator Definitions are plug-ins loaded automatically when the program starts. cmd_b_query = 47, -- Implementation of the "Server Command Reference" spec-- The spec changes very, very infrequently, but the reference is-- included in the source of this file-- -- Typically you want to import this qualified, e.g. More may be added to the end of the list in the future.enum { All commands are received via TCP or UDP using a simplified version of Open Sound Control (OSC). Command arguments have single character tags which occur in a tag string to identify their types. There was a problem. These messages are sent as notification of some event to all clients who have registered via the /notify command. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_n_order = 62, default = 0), number of frames to write (optional. Is it possible to call a long-running Supercollider script (including booting the server) from a Windows batch file, say, by calling sclang.exe with the Supercollider script as a command-line argument? This is only meant for setting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. cmd_version = 64, construct the node order just after the node specified by the add target ID. cmd_n_fill = 17, Buffers are used for wave tables, sample buffers, delay lines, envelopes, or for any other need which can use an array of floating point values. cmd_g_new = 21, cmd_b_allocReadChannel = 54, This is how you can map the controls of a node with an auto generated ID. Get contiguous ranges of controls. Buffers may be safely allocated, loaded and freed while synthesis is running, even while unit generators are using them. Synths send audio signals to each other via a single global array of audio buses. These are short notes on installing SuperCollider from source on a debian-based Linux distro … in 2019. The SuperCollider 3 Synth Server is a simple but powerful synthesis engine. as 'SCCmd',-- for 'SCCmd.quit', etc. In a SuperColliderprogram, it is the last value stated in a program that automatically becomes the return value - no special command is required. print the parsed contents of the message. It is descended from Smalltalk, considered by many to be the first completely object-oriented programming language. cmd_n_mapa = 60, The currently defined buffer fill commands are listed below in a separate section. One of -u or -t must be supplied. (optional) some commands provide other information, for example a buffer index. The synth server does not send or receive MIDI. eg. However, even if this is not done, the next bundle or message received will begin with the standard error posting status, as set by modes 0 or 1. The class reference would then only contain descriptions of the class, the methods and their arguments. A made a very serious "hmmmmmm" sound when I got to the bit about ports. It uses the reflection and beans mechanism to dynamically create instances of java classes and control t If the control bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. a 64 bit double precision floating point number. Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global control bus. add the new node to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_close = 33, cmd_g_freeAll = 24, cmd_g_dumpTree = 56, The server will reassign this synth to a reserved negative number. Set contiguous ranges of buses to sets of values. Buffers are arrays of 32 bit floating point values with a small descriptive header. Open commands in Atom with command-shift-P and type superc to filter by supercollider commands. cmd_n_free = 11, default = 1 channel), starting frame in file (optional. allocSharedControls(numControls) - set the number of shared control buses. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. See RootNode and Default Group for more info. All nodes have an integer ID. 1 - add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If you use ['/error', -1] within a self-bundling method, you should always close it with ['/error', -2] so that subsequent bundled messages will take the correct error posting status. If the server was booted from within SCLang (as opposed to from the command line) there will also be a 'default group' with an ID of 1 which is the default target for all new Nodes. cmd_notify = 1, cmd_status = 2, Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. Sends all arguments following the command name to the unit generator to be performed. So this is useful for nodes that are of finite duration and that get the control information they need from arguments and buses or messages directed to their group. long. a series of Commands each preceded by a 32-bit integer byte length. These are the currently defined command numbers. Adds the node to the tail (last to be executed) of the group. Replies to sender with the corresponding /b_setn command. not yet implemented. normalize - Normalize peak amplitude of wave to 1.0. wavetable - If set, then the buffer is written in wavetable format so that it can be read by interpolating oscillators. ["/d_load", "synthdefs/void.scsyndef", If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Allocates zero filled buffer to number of channels and samples. Similar to sine2 except that each partial may have a nonzero starting phase. Reply to /n_query. default = -1, see below), starting frame in buffer (optional. name: vivid-supercollider version: 0.3.0.0 synopsis: Implementation of SuperCollider server specifications description: An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. default = 0, see below), number of frames to read (optional. cmd_b_gen = 38, If you use a node ID of -1 for any other command, such as /n_map, then it refers to the most recently created node by /s_new (auto generated ID or not). If the channels argument is absent or empty all channels are read in the order they appear in the file. Since version 3.6 SuperCollider consists of three separate components: The sound synthesiser (audio server), the programming language (and language interpreter) and the code editor (integrated development environment, or shortly, IDE). The number of channels requested must match the number of channels in the buffer. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. Query the SuperCollider version. These "temporary" states accumulate within a single bundle -- so if you have nested calls to methods that use bundle-local error suppression, error posting remains off until all the layers have been unwrapped. Effects processes can be created and patched into a signal flow dynamically at scheduled times. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Equivalent to sclang's, Minor version number. They read input and write output to global audio and control buses. /b_gen does not accept a completion message as the final argument. See the Command Reference below. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node ends and is deallocated. Takes a list of pairs of bus indices and values and sets the buses to those values. cmd_c_getn = 41, Synths can send control signals to each other via a single global array of control buses. There are four ways to add the node to the tree as determined by the add action argument which is defined as follows: Controls may be set when creating the synth. The audio server has the following features: Open Sound Control access See /usr/share/SuperCollider/Help/MIDIFile/MIDIFile-samplepatches.rtf for example usage. a unique number identifying this command. all the groups and synths contained within it, optionally including the current control values for synths. This command is used when the client no longer needs to communicate with the synth and wants to have the freedom to reuse the ID. No notification is sent when this occurs. ]. the low 32 bits of the original time stamp. When program execution ends, and control is returned to the SuperColliderinterpreter, the interpreter outputs the return value in the "SuperCollider output" pane. Time stamps are in the same format as defined by Open Sound Control : The top 32 bits are seconds since 1900 and the lower 32 bits represent the 32 bit fraction of one second. As b_allocRead, but reads individual channels into the allocated buffer in the order specified. Replies to the sender with a /g_queryTree.reply message listing all of the nodes contained within the group in the following format: N.B. Buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. Map a node's controls to read from audio buses. Parallel groups are relaxed groups, their child nodes are evaluated in unspecified order. cmd_n_run = 12, Takes a list of pairs of control names or indices and audio bus indices and causes those controls to be read continuously from a global audio bus. This command will end non real time mode and close the sound file. Loads a directory of synth definitions files. If "leave file open" is set to one then the file is created, but no frames are written until the DiskOut ugen does so. cmd_d_load = 6, One of -u or -t must be supplied. Quit program. As b_read, but reads individual channels in the order specified. cmd_d_freeAll = 8, Commands. Audio buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. The audio input will taken from input-filename. There are two types, Synths and Groups. A Server object is a representation of a server application. 'supercollider:recompile' 'supercollider:open-post-window' 'supercollider:clear-post-window' 'supercollider:cmd-period' 'supercollider:eval' 'supercollider:boot-server' 'supercollider:quit-server' 'supercollider:kill-all-servers' If number of frames is less than zero, the entire file is read. The server reserves all negative IDs. ... install = no--nodoc-y--replaces = supercollider, supercollider-common, supercollider-ide, supercollider-language, supercollider-server, supercollider-supernova < br > First seven hex digits of the commit hash. It's all in that one file. A Group is a collection of Nodes represented as a linked list. Install supercollider-serverInstalling supercollider-server package on Debian Unstable (Sid) is as easy as running the following command on terminal:s cmd_s_getn = 45, Get contiguous ranges of samples. This command is purely for bookkeeping convenience of the client. Takes a list of buses and replies to sender with the corresponding /c_set command. All asynchronous commands send a reply to the client when they are completed. Causes a synth to print out the values of the inputs and outputs of its unit generators for one control period. All running modules are ordered in a tree of nodes that define an order of execution. Not all combinations of header format and sample format are possible. SuperCollider – Tutorial 04 (More Commands) Authored by Derek Shaw. the new node replaces the node specified by the add target ID. Sub-groups are not freed. Traverses all groups below this group and frees all the synths. For each range, the starting bus index is given followed by the number of channels to change, followed by the values. The control arguments are the same as for the n_set command. cmd_sync = 52, b.sine1(1.0/[1,2,3,4,5,6], true, false, true); //fill the Buffer with wavetable data. The synth server and its client(s) may be on the same machine or across a network. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. The git branch name and commit hash could be anything if the user has forked SC, so they should only be used for display and user interface purposes. The tree defines the order of execution of all Synths. This message now supports array type tags ($[ and $]) in the control/value component of the OSC message. Many asynchronous commands can contain an OSC message or bundle to be executed upon completion. The output file header-format should be one of: AIFF, WAVE, NeXT. Sent only to the sender of the original message. Using buses rather than connecting synths to each other directly allows synths to connect themselves to the community of other synths without having to know anything about them specifically. cmd_b_allocRead = 29, A node was turned off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately after node B. The server sends an /n_info message for each node to registered clients. int32 - the length in bytes of the following message. cmd_g_queryTree = 57, One suggestion is to make a clear distinction of a consistent class reference and other documentation. In most cases it is controlled from within the SuperCollider programming language, but it can be used independently. The Unit generator API is a simple C interface. a symbol argument consisting of the letter 'c' or 'a' (for control or audio) followed by the bus's index. Patching between modules is done through global audio and control buses. Query the status. Create a new group and add it to the tree of nodes. These flags can be added together to create a unique single integer flag that describes the true/false combinations for these three options: Fills a buffer with a series of sine wave partials. cmd_d_loadDir = 7, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. On other systems, such as a Mac, you can simply copy MIDIFile.sc into your SuperCollider Extensions directory (typically [$HOME]/Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/Extensions/ on Mac OS X). Similar to sine1 except that each partial frequency is specified explicitly instead of being an integer series of partials. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the values. See Node Notifications below for the format of the /n_info message. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the value to fill. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. Replies to sender with the corresponding /n_set command. A new Node may be added to the head or tail of the group. For each range, the starting control index is given followed by the number of controls to change, followed by the values. a string with tags defined by the types of the arguments to follow. If number of frames is less than zero, all samples from the starting frame to the end of the buffer are written. This is useful when debugging your command stream. These messages are sent by the server in response to some commands. and Server Command Reference. The cmd-filename should be a file that contains OSC bundles sorted in ascending time order. A command was received too late. While synthesis is running, new modules can be created, destroyed and repatched, sample buffers can be created and reallocated. Using this method to start and stop nodes can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time run flag is toggled. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Download SuperCollider 3d5.1. Thus child nodes (those contained within a group) are listed immediately following their parent. cmd_n_setn = 16, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to sets of values. The first float value specifies the amplitude for n = 1, the second float value specifies the amplitude for n = 2, and so on. 'c1'), number of channels (optional. cmd_n_cmd = 13, Replies to sender with /done when complete. Allocates buffer to number of channels of file and number of samples requested, or fewer if sound file is smaller than requested. add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If MIDI is desired, it is up to the client to receive it and convert it to appropriate OSC commands for the synth engine. The order of nodes corresponds to their execution order on the server. Currently only the server commands needed for the "vivid" package are supported. Start Applications >> Audio & Video >> JACK Control If top left Start button is Green select it This needs to start with no errors Start Applications >> Accessories >> Text Editor (Gedit) Start Tools >> SuperCollider mode Start from SuperCollider menu >> Start Server Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Unit generator definitions are Mach-O bundles (not to be confused with CFBundles). An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. cmd_dumpOSC = 39, the high 32 bits of the time it was executed. cmd_b_getn = 43, Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. Takes a list of pairs of sample indices and values and sets the samples to those values. Loads a file of synth definitions. The Server has a graph of all the running Synths, which may be organised into Groups for convenience. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). Loads a file of synth definitions from a buffer in the message. Synth Definition files are created by the SuperCollider language application and are loaded into the synth server. Read sound file channel data into an existing buffer. Program name. The definition is removed immediately, and does not wait for synth nodes based on that definition to end. Plug-ins can define commands that operate on buffers. Allocate buffer space and read a sound file. The number of channels in the output file is specified with the -o argument. Sent only to the sender of the original message. The SuperCollider synthesis server (scsynth) SuperCollider's sound generation is bundled into an optimised command-line executable (named scsynth). previous node ID, -1 if no previous node. Output will be written to output-filename. Major version number. SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. Notify when async commands have completed. In a multi-client situation, the only way you can be sure what node -1 refers to is to put the messages in a bundle. Tutorials. If the first argument is 1, server will remember your return address and send you notifications; if 0, server will stop sending notifications. If you press Ctrl+Enter while the cursor is on the first line and then do the same on the second line, a 3 should appear in the Post window for each command. Equivalent to sclang's, Patch version name. In addition no notifications are sent when there are changes of state for this node, such as /go, /end, /on, /off. Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately before node B. any combination of arguments of types: int, float, string or bytes. How to add the new group according to following from SuperCollider Server Command Reference: 0 - add the new group to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format . The name of the virtual server to be removed. default = -1, see below), number of sequential samples to change (M). It forwards OSC messages and has a number of allocators that keep track of IDs for nodes, buses and buffers. On Fedora Linux, use MIDIFile.sc(installed in /usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MIDIFile/ by Planet CCRMA package supercollider-midifile). cmd_b_fill = 37, Recommended introductory tutorials: Scott Wilson’s SC tutorial - comes bundled with the SC download, as do some more tutorials (…plus here’s a quick reference based on Scott’s tutorial by Andrew McWilliams); Nick Collins’ SuperCollider tutorial has a 12 week course of tutorial files as browseable HTML, and is also available in a downloadable zip They are binary code libraries that are used as building blocks by Synths to build synthesis algorithms. Replies with a /synced message when all asynchronous commands received before this one have completed. These are the currently defined fill routines for use with the /b_gen command. cmd_b_readChannel = 55, An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. floating point and integer arguments are interpreted as control value. Map a node's controls to read from a bus. cmd_n_before = 18, MacOS9 getting source code for SC Server The reply will contain the sent unique ID. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). The bundle timestamp will establish the ending time of the file. It is expected that the client will send all control commands. NUMBER_OF_COMMANDS = 65 If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. SuperCollider. cmd_c_setn = 26, Stops a node abruptly, removes it from its group, and frees its memory. Create a new parallel group and add it to the tree of nodes. You can run sclang from the command line. audio music programming-language c-plus-plus sound supercollider synthesis C++ GPL-3.0 573 3,463 630 (46 issues need help) 37 Updated Nov 24, 2020. qpm They can be addressed and controlled by commands to the synthesis engine. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. The Nodes in a Group may be both Synths and other Groups. If reading a file to be used by DiskIn ugen then you will want to set "leave file open" to one, otherwise set it to zero. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. cmd_b_read = 30, a buffer of data preceded by a 32 bit length field and padded to a multiple of 4 bytes. If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. Frees all nodes in the group. cmd_u_cmd = 20, clear - if set then the buffer is cleared before new partials are written into it. cmd_g_head = 22, The job of scsynth (the server) is to handle all the sound generators, filters, and waveforms it has been told about and to calculate values to send to the sound card. Wesleyan nightly builds of SuperCollider Server for MacOS X; Download SuperCollider Server for MacOS X from Sourceforge. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. all the groups and synths contained within it. cmd_b_set = 35, cmd_n_after = 19, Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Synths can have their own local controls that are set via commands to the server. If the audio bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. Copy samples from the source buffer to the destination buffer specified in the b_gen command. Not yet implemented. Must be done before the internal server is booted. the high 32 bits of the original time stamp. At startup there is a top level group with an ID of zero that defines the root of the tree. Otherwise the new partials are summed with the existing contents of the buffer. Fills a buffer with a series of chebyshev polynomials, which can be defined as:cheby(n) = amplitude * cos(n * acos(x)). It is used to control scsynth (or supernova) from the SuperCollider language. Example¶ rm vserver lb_vip To remove multiple vservers, use the following command: rm vserver lb_vip[1-3] This command is sent to all registered clients in response to an /n_query command. Communicate to the SuperCollider language from IanniX. Use this command to remove a virtual server. b.plot; //stored shape (not in special SuperCollider Wavetable format, for clarity) a 32 bit single precision floating point number. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. cmd_d_recv = 5, cmd_s_get = 44, cmd_s_newargs = 59, Set contiguous ranges of buses to single values. This is the Mac OS 9 version. Class reference . turn off error posting until the next ['/error', 1] message. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node is turned on. add the new node to the the head of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_setn = 36, setSharedControl(num, value) - set the current value of a shared control bus to value. Clear all scheduled bundles. Your laptop. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to sets of values. Set contiguous ranges of control indices to single values. Since then it has been evolving into a system used and further developed by both scientists and artists working with sound. Command numbers are listed at the end of this document. Replies to sender with the following message: The standard human-readable version string can be constructed by concatenating major_version ++ "." (See Server Guide, as well as Client vs Server for more details on the distinction.) Causes a group to print the node IDs and names of each node in the group for one control period. The job of sclang (the client) is to interpret the commands you give as written code, and to send instructions to scsynth on your behalf. the command name. That is not the issue. 1 to receive notifications, 0 to stop receiving them. Get contiguous ranges of buses. Post a representation of this group's node subtree.
