Alex Hofmann has created four videos demonstrating how to get up and running with QuteCsound, the new front-end editor for Csound. This first video demonstrates the built-in help system and included tutorials. Here are the other three: A 58-second intro, Using MIDI and Configuration.
Exploring Analogue Synth Techniques v2 is a Csound tutorial I wrote in 1998 as part of my senior thesis at Berklee. I was originally inspired by my experience with analog synths, hence the title. Though the examples and text are clearly Csound-centric, much of what is covered translates well to other synth environments.
I just released a new Slipmat package at sourceforge. This latest version comes with three new examples, including one that uses a basic Java GUI. Four out of the five examples are now pre-rendered as CSDs for convenience. There are also a handful of new synth Modules to play with.
The documentation has been improved, including better Javadoc support. The Javadocs are not pre-rendered as to keep the size of the release to a minimum, so you’ll have to generate them yourself. Many IDEs, including NetBeans and Eclipse, will generate them for you.
There is also the PseudoTutorial example that gives a broad overview of the design of Slipmat and how to use it.
And in case you’re wondering, Slipmat is “A Java-based modular computer music library built on top of the Csound API.”
