I get an error when I try to run the code:

ERROR: Message 'quote' not understood.

I think it’s from line 244: delta/Δ.scd at d67c517c0bcd0e6245cb243c428c4d7dd034734f · bla3kw3b/delta · GitHub.

There is a process of discovery involved where multiple errors may occur, however this is not one of them.

The system is purely functional, despite one persistent error which occurs when SC is unable to determine it’s own source path.

It must be able to evaluate thisProcess.nowExecutingPath without returning nil.

It must be able to evaluate thisProcess.nowExecutingPath without returning nil .

In other words you cannot just copy paste the code in scide and run it.
If I’m not mistaken, if you do not save the file to disk, thisProcess.newExecutingPath will return nil.

That’s correct @shihhs. thank you for clarifying.

Operation depends on file evaluation from a verified path.

The source can be cloned infinitely, placed anywhere, named anything.

It is also rather limited in scope without an external interface.

The system is originally built to meet the specifications of a specific hardware interface, one which accepts system exclusive messages for full range RGB modulation of cells in the delta matrix.

It is intended to be a process of discovery, however… lines [ 61, 67, 394, 420, 476, 483, 490 ] contain integer data which meet explicit specifications for only one dedicated interface, specifically, the Novation Launchpad Mini Mk3.
