    For the intrepid, especially those annoyed with the purported input-sluggishness of musescore et al, an interesting text-based alternative is LilyPond

    My dad wrote an opera using LilyPond in vim, though I believe these days he's actually doing more with supercollider, which skips sheetmusic and goes right to sounds:

    Weirdly enough,I got into programming through music. I got into making experimental electronic music and ended up learning SuperCollider. Figured I’d have to get a real job at some point and I liked learning Supercollider enough that I figured I should try to go back to school and learn some more useful programming languages

    So you’re wondering what would making music with code look like? The tools I’m familiar with are TidalCycles, Sonic Pi, and SuperCollider. I’m having a hard time describing what it’s like to make music with tools like these so here’s a video of a performance. One person is live coding the music and the other is live coding the visuals. I think it’s super cool how the music is improvised and built over time by layering commands. Some keywords you could search to see more examples would be Algorave and Livecoding.
  • Has anyone else noticed a weird noise coming from their Starlite?

    So far mostly Vim (not for coding, just writing so far), NetHack, Firefox, and mpd and ncmpcpp. Also mpv occasionally. I'm planning on installing SuperCollider at some point too and getting back into that, but that shouldn't be too heavy either.
  • Clicks & Cuts Minimal Sounds & One Shots

    I would say no there aren't any sample packs for this kind of stuff because this entire scene developed around using a samplers and sampling as well as some computer tools like Max/Msp, SuperCollider, Recycle, Cool Edit Pro and some other stuff I am quite likely forgetting at the moment. Also you might look at some of the IRCAM stuff too.

  • Is there any alternative to sonic pi?
    1 project | /r/musicprogramming | 16 Mar 2023
    Sonic pi is basically a wrapper for the amazing language Supercollider ( I highly recommend watching Eli Fieldsteel's excellent tutorials on it ( to see some of what its capable of (I think he is almost a finished a new book on it as well).
