Hi colleagues, I’m excited to announce that the first beta release of my csound6~ object for Max is now available for intel Mac. It’s a minimal, modern csound object using the Csound6 API, and is largely based on Victor Lazzarini’s object for PureData. This should allow better latency and performance than the legacy csound~ object and handle larger and more messages, but does not attempt to port all the features of the legacy csound~ object.
Features include realtime score playing, audio input, event handling, score cueing, and real time modulation messages.
Limitations: Csound table reading and writing from Max and Max event output (from outvalue opcodes) are not yet implemented, but are planned. Csound midi opcodes are not supported and whether they will be is to be determined based on demand.
Binaries exist for Intel Mac only at the moment. The code should compile for Windows and Apple Silicon, but I could do with some help on both of those as I’m not a Windows developer and just got an M1. If you can help, please get in touch!
