Due to my traveling in France, the normal monthly meeting of the International Csound Users Group has been canceled for April. Regular meetings will resume in May. My apologies for the March meeting that did not happen.
At the May meeting, I will present work that I have done that makes a number of my plugin opcodes available as binaries on three major desktop operating systems: the Macintosh operating system, Linux, and Windows. These include opcodes allowing C++ code to be embedded in Csound orchestras, Web pages to be embedded in Csound orchestras, and opcodes allowing both VST2 and VST3 plugins to be hosted in Csound. These are all hosted on public, open source GitHub repositories (except for the VST2 opcodes, which for legal reasons must remain private).
The International Csound Users Group Meeting is a monthly virtual meeting for all those interested in learning, using, or contributing to the development of the Csound system for computer music. Meetings are also open to the discussion of issues of computer music in general, both musical and technical.
The meeting is hosted and chaired by myself, Michael Gogins, on Zoom. The time is the first Wednesday of each month at 19:00 UTC (14:00 EST). Meetings can accommodate up to 100 participants with reasonably good audio quality, and normally last from one to two hours.
Please email me at email@example.com to suggest your own topics for presentation or discussion. Suitable topics include:
Questions on how to install or configure Csound.
Questions on how best to use Csound.
Presentation of new techniques for sound synthesis or algorithmic composition with Csound.
Presentation of new features in Csound.
Presentation of new tools to be used with Csound or to augment Csound.
Presentation of music made with Csound or other electroacoustic music (but see below).
We do welcome the presentation and discussion of pieces made with Csound, or indeed of any piece of electroacoustic music created by a participant, but all music (excepting live demonstrations) should be hosted on some external platform such as YouTube or SoundCloud, as we will play only the first few minutes of a piece during the meeting in order not to disrupt the flow of discussion. For this reason, we prefer to announce pieces for upcoming meetings in advance.
