I’ve been getting into Tidal 1.0 the last couple of days and its sooo good and fun. Much more accessible than i expected (sans the install process). I also find it incredibly refreshing to move away from the GUI world while at the same time avoiding the verbose tediousness and intellectual requirements of supercollider/csound. Thanks to @yaxu and everyone who helped create this.
Somehow this thread alerted me to the existence of neovim, vim-plug, got me to spring-clean my Haskell install, use tmux and fiddle with a bash script, download SuperCollider… it’s actually been really fun leveling up my super-user stat . And the TidalCycles installation was only complicated by me trying to be too clever / following directions poorly.
Anyway, I got the “hello world” d1 $ sound "bd sn" to work! I’m excited to explore more, thanks for posting here
Hello! I’ve been thinking about writing Tidal to control my modular via something like Tidal-Midi and an Expert Sleepers FH-2 for a little while. Or even Tidal->Ansible but then I’m not sure what I’d do for a MIDI host! A few questions:
Is anyone doing anything like this?
Do you think Expert Sleepers FH-2 provides any benefits over FH-1 for this particular use case? (Tidal -> Modular)
Has anyone done this via Ansible? If so, please provide details!
Anyone have experience installing Tidalcycles on Archlinux by any chance?
I’m learning SuperCollider at the moment, but figured I would get Tidalcycles and learn it on the side.
However, I remember archlinux handles haskell stuff a bit differently as every haskell dependencies or libraries are dynamically compiled into arch packages, which in the end result in a ridiculous amount of haskell packages on the system constantly having to be updated.
Just wondering how everyone installed Tidalcycles on Arch? pacman -S cabal-install and then cabal install tidal? that’s all? do i need this ghc compiler? or is it better to grab everything directly from the haskell site bypassing pacman entirely?
Just wondering how everyone installed Tidalcycles on Arch? pacman -S cabal-install and then cabal install tidal?
I would’ve just tried that, but pacman -S cabal-install fails for me at the moment because pacman fails to download some of its dependencies. Nonetheless, it’s perfectly fine to install TidalCycles through cabal since you probably don’t need a system wide installation.
Hey everyone! I figured this might be a good place to share this new extension to TidalCycles/SuperDirt that allows for interfacing with Modular Synthesizers (assuming you have a DC-Coupled audio interface like an ES-9).
Since there’s a certain overlap of modular synthesis, supercollider usage and people not afraid of using computer keyboards as instruments in this community i hope that at least some of you may find this helpful
