Hi Mike! and Hi Paul! and Hi to anyone else I know in this thread whose handles I might not recognize.
A friend told me I should join this forum to announce a new live coding environment, gibberwocky, I’ve been developing in conjunction with Graham Wakefield. It plays off of ideas found in Gibber but is used to sequence / control Ableton Live. It also takes the “alive” code features (dynamic source code annotations / visualizations) that Paul mentioned quite a bit further than I had previously done in Gibber, including using sparklines to display the values of gen~ modulations.
In terms of features, a big advantage as compared to MIDI sequencing environments is that you can dynamically create gen~ graphs and assign them to control any parameter in Live. So, full floating-point resolution, audio-rate modulation.
Nice to find this thread here! And double thumbs up for all the other environments mentioned in this thread. One of the really amazing things about the live coding community is the plurality of environments that exist; in fact, there were at least four new environments introduced just last week at the international live coding conference. - Charlie
