Supercollider extension Quark-wannabe for relaying Music Information via OSC. The main motivation behind this quark is to have connect visual interactions with sound interactions via OSC Messaging. Ideally you would run the detector in SC and relay the info to your favorite program like Processing, OF, Cinder, etc.

  • Linux: ~/.local/share/SuperCollider/
  • MacOSX: ~/Library/Application\ Support/SuperCollider/

  • Onset detection + BandPass filtering needs some work.
  • Fix multiple onset detectors bug (might be LocalBuf?).
  • More detectors: FFT Centroids, Chromagrams, Mel coefficients.
  • Make awesome documentation and examples with processing.
  • Calculate statistical info like medians, max,min, averages and variance.
