Before moving on to Cs7 (which will be awesome), Is there any chance there will be a new release of Csound - v6.16 - users are calling it ‘The Csoundalorian’ and looking forward to falling in love with cute little ‘baby YopCodes’

  • and maybe a new CsoundQt? (with Csound 6.16 support), and a new CsoundBela 6.16, and all the great improvements to the Csound Manual too )

  • hope so.

PS: Possibly worth noting that on my personal M1 MacBook running Big Sur
some paths are changed and thus there are some issues with finding things

But, I am happy to report that:

  • Csound 6.15 is running on it. (in the terminal)
  • CsoundQt 9.8.1 is running on it.
  • but given the ‘path’ issues the ‘run from terminal’ button does not launch the terminal.

In Catalina (on my Berklee teaching MacBook)
brew install --HEAD csound

  • followed by…
    brew reinstall csound

does build and run the latest developer version - from today


it’s pretty great because when you ‘run from term’ in CsoundQt,
it launces the terminal and runs the latest developer version from January 7 - I just built it moments ago.

whereas, when you hit the ‘run csound’ button, it runs the installed version - from August 10.

Happy to assist in testing Csound, CsoundQt, Brew Csound on Catalina and M1 Mac.
