Re: [sc-dev] Interface Builder and SC / Cocoa <--> SC Bridge

I have played with this a little bit now and am more than intrigued...

So I have another question - from what I can see, a number of people who use SuperCollider use it to generate sounds which they then bounce to disk and then load into their favorite sequencer. Has anyone looked at or thought about hosting SuperCollider as a Core Audio plugin and what would be involved with such a scenario? I would be very interested in working in this direction as I think it would extend the usability of SuperCollider to many other environments.

I am still getting to grips with the source code base so if anyone lives in the Bay Area and has the ability to provide a general walkthrough that would be very much appreciated.

If you actually do ust that ObjCOSC library, let me know -- there's a
newer version which you'll want and I can send you an email when I get
the code cleaned-up and update the website.
