[Csnd] tangential-topic: Scheme for Pd 0.1 released, a fun way to work with csound in pure data

Hi Csounders, some of you might be interested to know that I’ve released Scheme for Pd as binaries now for windows and mac. Scheme for Pd is an external for Pure Data that puts an s7 Scheme interpreter in Pd. While not strictly on-topic, I personally think it’s a lovely way to work with Csound, using the csound object in Pd and sending it messages from Scheme code. I will make a video of that process in the next couple of weeks.

Project is here: https://github.com/iainctduncan/scheme-for-pd

(Linux is still build from source, but it should “just work”)

This is the same as earlier, except with new help-files?
If so, can I get these without reinstalling the whole thing?

Hi Forrest, yes, the only addition to the earlier build so far is a new “read” message to ease loading files. I have some other additions in the pipe but they need further testing. The point of this is just that there are binaries so people who don’t want to build from source can just install on windows and mac by downloading a zip file.
