I have begun learning Supercollider! This thread will serve as the primary reference to Supercollider-related inquiries and information.
Supercollider is an audio programming language that has been used by the likes of Richard D. James to create peculiar and idiosyncratic noises. It is also an algorithmic music software engineering application.
Refer to SCExperimentation by yours truly!
A wonderful aid is Eli Fieldsteel's YouTube tutorials.
It is crucial to sophisticated Intelligent Dance Music composition, which is one of my endeavors.
