I’m happy to announce that the well established and widely used system for music and audio generation and processing, “Csound”, is now available for Haiku in an up-to-date version.
If you’re not familiar with it, Csound, goes back a long way – to the 1980s, in fact – but it is always being actively developed. It is a comprehensive language for building scripts that generate music (or any other audio), either preprogrammed or live from e.g. MIDI input. For more, see https://csound.com/
The Haiku package is fairly complete, with real-time audio output and Haiku-style MIDI input. It doesn’t yet have live audio in or MIDI out, and a few features like Lua interfacing haven’t been included yet. It’s available at:
The hpkg has been heavily hand-crafted to hopefully be self contained, so it may not appear in a repository for a while, but it should just drop in and be runnable.
It’s a command-line only app right now. Giovanni, if you’re around, how’s about re-porting CsoundQT?
