Stuff I’ve learnt today: Sometimes in #supercollider it is better to write a function than to write a class... Writing a class (sometimes) forces you into a mindset of trying to predict every possible use-case, with the associated pile of complexity that entails, instead of just writing that ad hoc function, saving yourself a lot of time and burnt brain cells.
What I learnt today: it usually helps to read the *entire* guide to writing classes before trying to write them... Still, I’m happy with the progress in shaping my very own #supercollider setup! Getting easier to do complex signal routing on the language side in a more modular way now. https://github.com/kflak/utils
Linux is about imagination:
"Linux... is... a huge collection of parts. A lot of steel struts, screws, nuts, gears, pulleys, motors, and a few suggestions on what to build. So you start to play with it. You build one of the suggestions and then another. After a while you discover that you have your own ideas of what to make... [Linux] takes on the shape of your imagination. It does what you want."
Through the fogs of low-level cold I managed to produce this class for creating effect chains in SuperCollider:
Still got to do some debugging, but looking promising!

Hi all! Short #introduction of myself: dancer, kind-of sort-of self taught #SuperCollider coder and composer, #Norwegian living in #Estonia. Ran away from macOS two years ago into the soft embrace of #arch #linux (yeah, that was a bit of a learning curve...). Now enjoying the immense benefits of the #foss community: #neovim, #neomutt #swaywm and all the other goodies. Still got a thing for #foucault. One half of choreographer duo Roosna & Flak. Left of center and then some.
