a Quark for SuperCollider

install it from within supercollider with the command Quarks.install("redUniverse") and then recompile.


physics system. work in progress. happy for any comments or contributions.

NOTE: some of the examples require additional classes like RedGA etc. these are available online at my homepage

more info in the lam06-handout.pdf

  • 090523 - moved some classes to folder 'additional'. added RedPerlin
  • 090522 - added RedMRCM and RedIFS
  • 090521 - RedWindow and RedJWindow now draws in the UserView - thanks Thor
  • 090514 - growth example and asPoint added to RedVector
  • 090510 - added RedLSystem and RedLTurtle classes. updated example 070-lsystem.scd. edited links in all helpfiles and in the overview. added s.sync to a few examples. updated and moved redFingerprint quark into redUniverse
  • 081111 - moved RedWindow and RedJWindow into separate folders (osx, linux, windows) so that cocoa gui code is ignored on linux+windows
  • 080929 - some minor additions. added extPoint asRedVector2D helper methods. added RedHiddenObject. useful when using attractors. added <userView for RedWindow and RedJWindow
  • 080219 - updated for sc3.2 and swingosc0.59. fixed all pendulum examples to draw line on swingosc (added a GUI.pen.stroke). changed from mouseover to mousemove so now it's required to click&drag to update mouse position. fixed 150-track_synth.scd and took away RedTrack. now using only standard ugens for audio tracking.
  • 080116 - changed from 25 to 40 fps for RedWindow and RedJWindow .play. some small corrections to match Pen changes to width_
  • 071205 - converted all help.rtf to .html and the examples to .scd. added the example overview file. changed so that RedJWindow is disabled by default.
  • 071031 - update for 3.1. removed with its strokeColor_ and fillColor_ extensions. tiny fix for 150-track_synth.rtf.
  • 071029 - bugfix. now RedWindow shouldn't crash sc anymore. it was due to scott's window scoll implemented earlier this autumn.
