Supercollider for Windows: Psycollider

I don’t remember how I arrived at sonenvir, a

research project that investigates applying sonification in a number of scientific disciplines, in order to develop a general sonification software environment.

but after seeing Psycollider , I’m really glad I did.

Psycollider is a windows port of the popular Supercollider real time audio synthesis programming language. As far as I know, it used to be only for the mac. Then there was a Linux version and someone was working on a Windows one, but this port seemed too outdated and inactive for me to bother trying it.

Yesterday, when I found it with a nice installer and simple instructions, I couldn’t resist installing it, and after figuring out a couple of oddities, I’ve been able to make some noise…

More on this to come soon, I guess.
