Starting up Monolith
This is the workflow I use to start up Monolith.
Start up emacs, open up an ansi-term (this I have mapped to a keyboard shortcut).
Go to the monolith folder and start jack. (I have a "run_jack" script included with this repo that's configured to work with my USB audio DAC).
Open up setup.el.
M-x load-file, then hit enter twice.
While in the setup.el buffer, hit s-q. This should start the s9 scheme REPL with monolith in it. Use this shortcut to jump to the REPL.
Run some commands:
(monolith:load "ugens.scm") (monolith:start) (out (sine 440 0.1))
With any luck, some sound.
Live Coding with Org Documents
Live coding is possible using org-babel. Loading
setup.elshould add some keybindings.
An org document running monolith scheme code should have the following property header:
#+PROPERTY: header-args:scheme :results silent :noweb yes
To eval a block of scheme code, put the cursor into the block and run C-c C-c.
S-p will toggle play/pause.
run function is defined in scheme, it can be executed
