If you’re interested in live coding and minimal / cryptic interfaces that’s worth checking out.
love Hundred Rabbits, I’ll have to try this out
Wow, I’m just learning about Hundred Rabbits! They’re pretty incredible.
I spent a few minutes trying to figure out PICO before I saw they made a tracker as well
I had a lot of fun exploring Marabu today! It makes it easier for me to think in terms of patterning and composition. I wish it could export midi/osc; it would be really fun to send controls to a more complex sound design system.
Not to derail the thread–
I’d be really interested in sharing some PICO “code”; learning by modification. Has anyone figured out some approaches to writing patches? I did find it pretty inscrutable but I think I just need to spend more time exploring control structures / getting some midi instruments hooked up.
I haven’t spent much time with it yet but I plan on learning more about it. Sharing code would be nice
Finally made sound with it (and Ableton)
Here’s a little polymetric-ish example

There’s a few independent “regions” on this, you can isolate them by commenting the other (with
I’ve been following this on twitter.
It’s definitely really cool, and I’m into the visual/sandbox/microcosm aspects. I’m a fan of more visual oriented programming, trackers, etc where you have the visual feedback along with the data. Some friends and I have been talking about live coding a lot recently and I’d like to spend some time getting into this over the winter.
It also reminds me of Brogue https://sites.google.com/site/broguegame/
Looks amazing. Dwarf Fortress for music?
(a recent tweet suggests it can be hooked into VCV Rack. there goes my life)
It can be hooked to anything midi compatible
This is highly intriguing, and I’ll try this out over the weekend when I’m back home.
I’m really into the very restricted approach here, and the few examples I heard online sound interesting.
Doing a lot with so little always seems rewarding.
OCRA looks really interesting - but I’m not getting any sound out of my ableton?
I used the simple example @ https://github.com/hundredrabbits/Orca/blob/master/examples/_midi.orca
Can’t see a way to load / save - so keyed it in. It appears to be working it’s way thru the notes - using loopmidi how do you link a midi port to Ocra?
fun basic sequencing jam
Thanks for that - will check it out.
more from my pc which is more powerful than my mac but has less stable internal midi ;-;
Thanks for trying out Orca!
It was a surprise to stumble on this forum.
Please let me know if you have any question
Thanks for making Orca! Loving it!
So many interesting and outstanding sequencers are appearing in my world. This and Loom on Norns stand out.
Orca->SevillaSoft->Ansible= four voices of extremely interesting Eurorack sequencing!
I would love to see more Orca x hardware synths video!
Let me know if you have any request
Someone made a pretty cool tutorial video, I think it belongs here if anyone wants to learn Orca lang.
Allieway Audio started creating a series of Orca tutorial videos!
Still not getting Orca to ‘link’ to Ableton? see note further down - but my main question is how do you inform Orca what midi link to use?
Could be useful - I’ve got LoopMIDI but Orca doesn’t start up with it linked.
