Alda comes with an interactive REPL (Read-Eval-Play Loop) that you can use to play around with its syntax. After each line of code that you enter into the REPL prompt, you will hear the result.

Using the Alda REPL requires that you have an Alda server running. If you haven't already started the Alda server, you can do so by running alda up.

To start the Alda REPL, run:

alda repl

At the REPL prompt, you can either enter Alda code, or use one of the available built-in commands, which start with a colon.

For a list of available commands, enter :help.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
