Supercollider Tasks

Munging in SC

Task Name: Set: Due: Weighting: Courses:
Task Summary All CMP tasks

NB Archived Task
You may remember a munger task in Max/MSP. This is the equivalent object in Supercollider and is useful not only in itself, but as a way of showing the similarities between the two environments.

NB If using the munger class generates a 'class not found' error, you need to install the following files: munger.sc should go into the SC3/SCClassLibrary directory. JTUgens.scx should go into the SC3/plugins directory. Then you need to compile the SC Library, or quit and restart SuperCollider.

You can find these files using Spotlight.


    The Task

    • Download the above files.
    • Run the file Munger-Basic.rtf in SC and edit the paths so you can open the other files.
    • Make sure the munger class is present.
    • Type Munger and draw up the help file.
    • Create a 30 second manipulation of a soundfile. If you wish, you can use the following code to record your effort:
      // recording (to the SC directory)...
      // use your own path below if you want.
      s.recSampleFormat = "int16";
      s.recChannels = 1; // number of channels
      // use the particular path above...


    • Zip or Stuff your patches, demos, etc. into one file called your_student_number_"SCMunger" (e.g. 0504335_SCMunger.zip or 0504335_SCMunger.sit), include a readme with your name and student number and, if necessary, how to use or just open the patch, and submit the whole thing here.

    The Projects

    The projects and tasks are designed to help you through the various courses and materials that you'll have to deal with, and also to provide an active and practical element to what could otherwise become a rather dry and technical exercise. Tasks are small exercises - you may be asked to complete one or two per week. Projects are larger and carry a higher percentage of the mark. We will undertake two, three, four or more projects and tasks. The final project is usually an individual choice project, and will be worth significantly more than the others in terms of percentages in your portfolio. We will usually try to set aside a time to perform the projects in a public setting.
