The development is part of a larger effort at BEK relating to OpenMusic that includes development, commisioning of new works and an introduction workshop. There are still a few seats available for this workshop!
OpenMusic 6.7, Audio Architecture, and LW-Linux Version
J. Bresson, D. Bouche, A. Vinjar
The principal addition in version 6.7 is the new modular Audio and MIDI architecture, allowing better integration with rendering engines. This new architecture has allowed at a first glance to extend the functionalities of the Audio Player in OpenMusic, offering more flexibility in audio output control. The new version also integrates the new OM-Faust library, allowing the creation and compilation of audio effects and synthesizers using the FAUST programming language as dynamic, on-the-fly modules loaded on different audio channels, that can be controlled interactively or automated.
OM 6.7 has also been ported to LispWorks Linux in a collaboration with the BEK center. The Linux version also uses this new architecture to interface varied open source systems for MIDI and audio rendering.
