ATK for SuperCollider3 v.3.8.0 released - Woo, hoo!
Posted by

Hot off the presses!

Even hotter off the presses!!

Careful, don’t burn yourself!!!

As you might be suspecting by now, we’re very excited about this latest release of the Ambisonic Toolkit for SuperCollider3 here at ATK Central. We’d really like to thank the SuperCollider Development Team for all the hard work getting this latest release out. Thanks everyone!

As you know, the README’s List of Changes summarizes the main new Features, Updates and Fixes. You’ll see we’ve made quite a few additions and clarifications to the Documentation. The SynthDef and NRT examples for ATK page is much more verbose—which we expect will be much more helpful. We’ve made a very useful improvement for working with kernel encoders and decoders in Non-Realtime. This was kinda tricky before, as OSC message bundles had to be explicitly managed by the user… which wasn’t so fun. That’s now handled behind the scenes, all to make NRT Ambisonics fun again!

Other Cool Stuff? We’ve added support for reading and writing Matrix Files. What does that mean? Well… in the longer term, it’ll lead to closer integration with ATK Reaper. We’ll be able to design a custom matrix (Encoder, Transformer, Decoder) in ATK SC3 and then use it in Reaper. It’ll also mean we’ll be able to author matrices via external tools, say the Ambisonic Decoder Toolbox, for use with the ATK. In the short term, matrix reading and writing improves the workflow for custom matrix design.

Also, we’d like to reiterate the wide range of supported sample rates:

  • 44100
  • 48000
  • 88200
  • 96000
  • 176400
  • 192000

To get this support you’ll need to download and install ATK Kernels v.1.2.1, if you haven’t already. (Of course you already knew!)

Do enjoy!

How to upgrade?
