WHY I USE OPUSMODUS SOFTWARE IN MY MUSICAL COMPOSITION PROCESS
In this video I will describe some of the techniques I used in my compositional process and why I decided to use OPUSMODUS Software for compose music ! Also my experience with Pure Data and Nodal Software before moving to Opusmodus.
Build-in Slime in Opusmodus coming soon.
Here is the 'Emacs-Slime Setup.lisp' extension file:
;;;--------------------------------------------------------- ;;; SLIME in Opusmodus ;;;--------------------------------------------------------- #! ;;; HOWTO If you're accustomed to Emacs and Common Lisp, you may prefer SLIME, the Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Emacs, to editing lisp in regular Opusmodus windows and its listener. There are a number of places to get Emacs for MacOS. One that works well is: https://emacsforosx.com SLIME ships with Opusmodus, in the "/Applications/Opusmodus.app/Contents/Resources/third-party/slime" directory. There are two parts to Slime: 1. Swank, the server, a Common Lisp system, which runs inside of the Opusmodus App. 2. Slime, the client, which is an Emacs lisp package. To start the Swank server when Opusmodus starts, comment out the (start-swank) form at the end of this file, and restart Opusmodus (or execute (start-swank) in the Listener to do it now, but not next time Opusmodus starts). To load Slime into your Emacs, define the following in your ~/.emacs startup file: (load "/Applications/Opusmodus.app/Contents/Resources/third-party/slime/emacs-opusmodus.el") (load-opusmodus-slime) If you want to use the Mac Command key for Emacs meta, instead of the default of the Mac Option key, and make C-o in dired open the file at point, in the Mac application that is assigned for editing that type of file, also add, after that: (opusmodus-options) Then, restart Emacs, and do 'm-x slime-connect'. For Host, use the default of localhost. For Port, use 4005, or the port you specified in the (start-swank) call. 4005 will likely be the default. With (ignore-errors (slime-connect "localhost" 4005)) in your ~/.emacs startup file, the slime will start automatically at Emacs start. A "*slime-repl ccl*" buffer should appear. You can get to that buffer at any time with 'c-c s r' in Emacs. It is a read-eval-print loop, executing inside the Opusmodus App. Use it just as you do the Opusmodus Listener. There are some Opusmodus commands that may be executed from Emacs. They are all on the "om-selector", accessible via "C-c o". That will bring up a query for a single character ("Select [?alqsv]"). You may type one of: ?: Show this help buffer. a: Audition and Notation (snippet). l: Audition and Notation last score. q: Quit selector. s: Stop audition. v: Voices Audition and Notation (snippet). The "snippet" is the lisp form before the insertion point, as in Opusmodus. The commands (other than ? and q) behave as the like-named commands in the Opusmodus Tools/Snippet menu, except they open a new (reusable) notation window, instead of a new notation panel. When connected to Slime, errors in the Opusmodus Listener will bring up a backtrace dialog in the connected Emacs, NOT the CCL debugger in the Listener. Be careful to use the "Return to toplevel" restart from there, not one of the ones that kills the thread, or you'll break your Opusmodus, and will have to restart it. !# ;;; End of HOWTO ;; To start the Swank server when Opusmodus starts, you need to ;; uncomment the (start-swank) expression below: It can take a first ;; arg to change the port from the default of 4005, and a second arg ;; to change the directory from which to load Swank from the default ;; of inside the application bundle (you should only do this if you ;; need to run a different version of Swank, to be compatible with a ;; different version of Slime in your Emacs).
