cmd_n_mapn = 48, long. Sent only to the sender of the original message. add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_c_get = 40, The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. Stops a node abruptly, removes it from its group, and frees its memory. setSharedControl(num, value) - set the current value of a shared control bus to value. At startup there is a top level group with an ID of zero that defines the root of the tree. The arguments to /b_info are as follows: Replies to sender with the corresponding /b_set command. Synth definitions are stored in files generated by the SuperCollider language application. cmd_s_noid = 49, For convenience of client-side methods, you can also suppress errors temporarily, for the scope of a single bundle. It's all in that one file. Get contiguous ranges of controls. Fill ranges of a node's control value(s). See /usr/share/SuperCollider/Help/MIDIFile/MIDIFile-samplepatches.rtf for example usage. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. The tree defines the order of execution of all Synths. Buffers may be safely allocated, loaded and freed while synthesis is running, even while unit generators are using them. a symbol argument consisting of the letter 'c' or 'a' (for control or audio) followed by the bus's index. Is it possible to call a long-running Supercollider script (including booting the server) from a Windows batch file, say, by calling sclang.exe with the Supercollider script as a command-line argument? Synths can send control signals to each other via a single global array of control buses. Allocates buffer to number of channels of file and number of samples requested, or fewer if sound file is smaller than requested. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of samples to change, followed by the value to fill. Set contiguous ranges of buses to single values. Synopsis¶ Arguments¶ name. A list of groups may be specified. cmd_b_gen = 38, the new node replaces the node specified by the add target ID. }; copyright © 2002 James McCartney - converted to ScDoc format 2011 by Jonatan Liljedahl, SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference, converted to ScDoc format 2011 by Jonatan Liljedahl, /usr/local/share/SuperCollider/HelpSource/Reference/Server-Command-Reference.schelp. May be "scsynth" or "supernova". These messages are sent as notification of some event to all clients who have registered via the /notify command. Arrayed control values are applied in the manner of n_setn (i.e., sequentially starting at the indexed or named control). add the new group just after the node specified by the add target ID. normalize - Normalize peak amplitude of wave to 1.0. wavetable - If set, then the buffer is written in wavetable format so that it can be read by interpolating oscillators. This command is used when the client no longer needs to communicate with the synth and wants to have the freedom to reuse the ID. Frees all nodes in the group. cmd_n_query = 46, The SuperCollider synthesis server (scsynth) SuperCollider's sound generation is bundled into an optimised command-line executable (named scsynth). 1 if the node is a group, 0 if it is a synth. Needed. See the Command Reference below. This command is synchronous and only works with the internal server. Your laptop. For the full audio rate signal, the argument must have its rate set to \ar. If number of frames is less than zero, the entire file is read. If "leave file open" is set to one then the file is created, but no frames are written until the DiskOut ugen does so. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. SwingOSC is an OpenSoundControl (OSC) server intended for scripting Java(tm), such as to create graphical user interfaces with AWT/Swing classes. cmd_s_get = 44, Synths are created from Synth Definitions. b.plot; //stored shape (not in special SuperCollider Wavetable format, for clarity) Takes a list of pairs of control indices and values and sets the controls to those values. In a multi-client situation, the only way you can be sure what node -1 refers to is to put the messages in a bundle. These are the currently defined fill routines for use with the /b_gen command. If you use ['/error', -1] within a self-bundling method, you should always close it with ['/error', -2] so that subsequent bundled messages will take the correct error posting status. Note this is an in-progress (incomplete) implementation. In addition no notifications are sent when there are changes of state for this node, such as /go, /end, /on, /off. cmd_g_freeAll = 24, cmd_notify = 1, Similar to sine2 except that each partial may have a nonzero starting phase. 'supercollider:recompile' 'supercollider:open-post-window' 'supercollider:clear-post-window' 'supercollider:cmd-period' 'supercollider:eval' 'supercollider:boot-server' 'supercollider:quit-server' 'supercollider:kill-all-servers' - Server Command Reference - Synth Definition File Format. A Synth is a collection of unit generators that run together. All asynchronous commands send a reply to the client when they are completed. Used for time stamps only. SuperCollider 3 Synth Server Architecture, /usr/local/share/SuperCollider/HelpSource/Reference/Server-Architecture.schelp. Unit Generator Definitions have names that match the names of SuperCollider language classes used in building Synth Definitions. int32 - the length in bytes of the following message. Responds to the sender with a /b_info message. Create a new group and add it to the tree of nodes. Synth Definition files are created by the SuperCollider language application and are loaded into the synth server. construct the node order at the head of the group specified by the add target ID. However, even if this is not done, the next bundle or message received will begin with the standard error posting status, as set by modes 0 or 1. cmd_n_trace = 10, The following is a list of all server commands and their arguments. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. construct the node order at the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. cmd_b_write = 31, Query the status. The git branch name and commit hash could be anything if the user has forked SC, so they should only be used for display and user interface purposes. Reads sound file data from the given starting frame in the file and writes it to the given starting frame in the buffer. Non-integer partial frequencies are possible. See Node Notifications below for the format of the /n_info message. Allocates zero filled buffer to number of channels and samples. You can see Synths and Groups being created just by looking at the Server graphics. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. This message now supports array type tags ($[ and $]) in the control/value component of the OSC message. Sends all arguments following the command name to the unit generator to be performed. cmd_c_getn = 41, Read sound file data into an existing buffer. One of -u or -t must be supplied. Commands. cmd_n_before = 18, For each range, the starting bus index is given followed by the number of channels to change, followed by the values. A node ended. Synths can have their own local controls that are set via commands to the server. Nodes which have already been freed will be ignored. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a background thread to complete so as not to steal CPU time from the audio synthesis thread. Causes a synth to print out the values of the inputs and outputs of its unit generators for one control period. Replies to the sender with a /g_queryTree.reply message listing all of the nodes contained within the group in the following format: N.B. If you send /s_new with a synth ID of -1, then the server will generate an ID for you. Many asynchronous commands can contain an OSC message or bundle to be executed upon completion. 2 - add the new group just before the node specified by the add target ID. Removes all bundles from the scheduling queue. Supercollider has been around since 1996, and provides a wide array of sound synthesis functions. SuperCollider is an object-oriented programming language. An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. If the node is a group, then it sets the controls of every node in the group. Temporary error suppression may not affect asynchronous commands in every case. Takes a list of buses and replies to sender with the corresponding /c_set command. Auto-reassign synth's ID to a reserved value. These flags can be added together to create a unique single integer flag that describes the true/false combinations for these three options: Fills a buffer with a series of sine wave partials. If a command's description contains the word Asynchronous, then that command will be passed to a … Server Architecture. For each range, the starting sample index is given followed by the number of buses to change, followed by the value to fill. All nodes have an integer ID. A node was moved. a 64 bit integer. To eliminate a DC offset when used as a waveshaper, the wavetable is offset so that the center value is zero. If you press Ctrl+Enter while the cursor is on the first line and then do the same on the second line, a 3 should appear in the Post window for each command. When program execution ends, and control is returned to the SuperColliderinterpreter, the interpreter outputs the return value in the "SuperCollider output" pane. add the new node to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. It is an efficient and expressive dynamic programming language providing a framework for acoustic research, algorithmic music, interactive programming and live coding… A node was turned on. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, audio bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. cmd_g_tail = 23, It provides an interpreted object-oriented language which functions as a network client to a state of the art, realtime sound synthesis server. Immediately following the output buses are the input buses, read from the audio hardware inputs. cmd_b_getn = 43, Output will be written to output-filename. cmd_b_read = 30, Overtone acts as a client to the Supercollider synthesis server. You can run sclang from the command line. Using this method to start and stop nodes can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time run flag is toggled. More may be added to the end of the list in the future.enum { Places node A in the same group as node B, to execute immediately after node B. Unit Generator Definitions have names that match the names of SuperCollider language classes used in building Synth Definitions. Otherwise the new partials are summed with the existing contents of the buffer. cmd_error = 58, The number of channels requested must match the number of channels in the buffer. as 'SCCmd',-- for 'SCCmd.quit', etc. the high 32 bits of the time it was executed. Set contiguous ranges of sample indices to single values. If the server was booted from within SCLang (as opposed to from the command line) there will also be a 'default group' with an ID of 1 which is the default target for all new Nodes. The tag string begins with a comma ',' character. cmd_b_zero = 34, These messages are sent by the server in response to some commands. eg. The class reference would then only contain descriptions of the class, the methods and their arguments. If the control bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. default = 0, see below), number of frames to read (optional. A Node is an addressable node in a tree of nodes run by the synth engine. Post a representation of this group's node subtree. If the node is a group, then it maps the controls of every node in the group. cmd_n_run = 12, See the method Server:queryAllNodes for an example of how to process this reply. Get contiguous ranges of samples. cmd_n_mapan = 61, Since you don't know what the ID is, you cannot talk to this node directly later. Since version 3.6 SuperCollider consists of three separate components: The sound synthesiser (audio server), the programming language (and language interpreter) and the code editor (integrated development environment, or shortly, IDE). The lowest numbered buses get written to the audio hardware outputs. Synths send audio signals to each other via a single global array of audio buses. cmd_g_queryTree = 57, The audio input will taken from input-filename. Sub-groups are not freed. A Server object is a representation of a server application. The synth server does not send or receive MIDI. num is the index of the bus to set. Buffers are arrays of 32 bit floating point values with a small descriptive header. The first float value specifies the amplitude of the first partial, the second float value specifies the amplitude of the second partial, and so on. Communicate to the SuperCollider language from IanniX. add the new group just before the node specified by the add target ID. There could be links to separate guides, tutorials, examples, etc.. Takes a list of triplets of control names or indices, bus indices, and number of controls to map and causes those controls to be mapped sequentially to buses. There are three defined fill routines for sine waves. cmd_b_setn = 36, cmd_b_get = 42, Clear all scheduled bundles. A made a very serious "hmmmmmm" sound when I got to the bit about ports. ]. cmd_n_fill = 17, After using a buffer with DiskOut, close the soundfile and write header information. Wesleyan nightly builds of SuperCollider Server for MacOS X; Download SuperCollider Server for MacOS X from Sourceforge. The node ID is the node that is sending the trigger. cmd_c_fill = 27, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to single values. This is only meant for setting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. Open commands in Atom with command-shift-P and type superc to filter by supercollider commands. This is only meant for getting a few samples, not whole buffers or large sections. cmd_s_getn = 45, Set contiguous ranges of control indices to sets of values. (optional) some commands provide other information, for example a buffer index. This command is purely for bookkeeping convenience of the client. 1 - add the new group to the the tail of the group specified by the add target ID. If the audio bus index is -1 then any current mapping is undone. Each command has a command number which can be sent to the server as a 32 bit integer instead of an OSC style string. Buses are indexed by integers beginning with zero. all the groups and synths contained within it, optionally including the current control values for synths. The cmd-filename should be a file that contains OSC bundles sorted in ascending time order. The trigger ID and value are determined by inputs to the SendTrig unit generator which is the originator of this message. They read input and write output to global audio and control buses. Thus child nodes (those contained within a group) are listed immediately following their parent. If the number of samples to copy is negative, the maximum number of samples possible is copied. Replies to sender with the corresponding /c_setn command. Any n_set, n_setn and n_fill command will also unmap the control. Sent only to the sender of the original message. The command was received too late to be executed on time. 'c1'), number of channels (optional. A Group is a collection of Nodes represented as a linked list. SuperCollider Server Synth Engine Command Reference. This command is sent to all registered clients when a node is moved. ... above it can be especially helpful to go through the Server Tutorial while referencing the Server Architecture and Server Command Reference. This command will end non real time mode and close the sound file. cmd_d_free = 53, construct the node order just before the node specified by the add target ID. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. Resident definitions with the same names are overwritten. One suggestion is to make a clear distinction of a consistent class reference and other documentation. For each range, the starting control index is given followed by the number of controls to change, followed by the values. Buffers are stored in a single global array indexed by integers beginning with zero. The number of bus channels defined as inputs and outputs do not have to match that of the hardware. Each command has a command number which can be sent to the server as a 32 bit integer instead of an OSC style string. No notification is sent when this occurs. cmd_d_loadDir = 7, cmd_n_set = 15, Using this method can cause a click if the node is not silent at the time it is freed. cmd_g_head = 22, Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. floating point and integer arguments are interpreted as control value. ["/s_new", "void", 1001, 1, 0] // completion message Download SuperCollider 2.2.16. NUMBER_OF_COMMANDS = 65 (See Server Guide, as well as Client vs Server for more details on the distinction.) previous node ID, -1 if no previous node. Free all synths in this group and all its sub-groups. b.sine1(1.0/[1,2,3,4,5,6], true, false, true); //fill the Buffer with wavetable data. SuperCollider – Tutorial 04 (More Commands) Authored by Derek Shaw. Notify when async commands have completed. Allocate buffer space and read channels from a sound file. name: vivid-supercollider version: 0.3.0.0 synopsis: Implementation of SuperCollider server specifications description: An interface-agnostic implementation of specs for SuperCollider server types and commands. This was an experimental version and is really a different program than version 2. Get a representation of this group's node subtree.
