Is a bare-bones SuperCollider livecoding library for Ruby, it provides comunication with a remote or local scsynth server and SynthDef creation with a in a similar way to Sclang.
SynthDef creation and sending is robust but some features are not implemented such as SynthDef variations and others I may not be aware of.
livecode.rb executable is located in the bin directory and a TextMate bundle included in extras permits livecoding from TextMate, comunication is thrugh *nix pipes. Similar functionality shouldn't be too dificult to implement from Emacs or Vim.
require 'scruby' s = Server.new s.boot SynthDef.new :fm do |freq, amp, dur| gate = EnvGen.kr Env.perc(0, 0.2) mod_env = EnvGen.kr Env.new([600, 200, 100], d(0.7,0.3) * dur), gate mod = SinOsc.ar freq * 1.4, :mul => mod_env sig = SinOsc.ar freq + mod env = EnvGen.kr Env.new( [0, 1, 0.6, 0.2, 0.1, 0 ], d(0.001, 0.005, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7) * dur ), gate, :doneAction => 2 sig = sig * amp * env Out.ar [sig, sig] end.send Synth.new :fm, :freq => 200, :amp => 0.8, :dur => 5
To start a live coding session:
The gem includes a TextMate bundle for interacting with the live coding session, currently there is no cli installation but is located in the extras folder, if a file has .live.rb extension the bundle is loaded.
Text can be sent from textmate to the live session pressing enter, either a selection or a bunch of code.
Sending text from another editor or the shell:
$ echo '...some ruby code...' | tr '\n' '∂' > `ruby -e "require 'tempfile'; puts Dir.tmpdir"`/ruby_live.pipe
Receive OSC messages from SuperCollider
