Developing New SuperCollider Tutorials


Hmmm, Flossmanuals seems to have entries for csound, chuck and pure data… we’re getting behind :slight_smile:

But mdbook to me looks fine too.


I made something about debugging (pull request). Feel free to have a look and comment.


Thanks! I will look later. I’ve just added some rough stuff to chapter 2. It’s very rough currently.


keep up the good work cian!
just sending you some words of encouragement :):wink:
really appreciate what you’re doing.


@Cian, is it definitelly great idea -for me, I am very interested in a Cookbook.

The only confusing thing ( at least for me) is that there are many ( not a lot) of sc tutorials, often describing the same things, but they differ in some details - which I appreciate a lot. So the thing is to make a good compilation of all these details which I see as important nuances.

here I am adding to discussion tutorials which I like and I think could be interesting for the project. (Some of them I prepared for schelp format - it always good to have it handy, if somebody is interested a could share)

Just noticed this thread.

A couple of years ago Andrea Valle wrote a book in Italian on the basics of Supercollider (and much more) as a sort of in depth introduction. It was then translated and proof read by Marinos Koutsomichalis, Josh Parmenter and myself. Its an excellent book even if a little bit ‘stiff’ due to language usage and the time limits we had. However, if anyone (beginners to intermediate), want a very good solid background tutorial then ask Andrea Valle where you can purchase a copy of his book (both in .pdf and book form last time a heard from Andrea).

Here’s the publishers webpage.


Please check the book by Fitton:


great idea,
where could one sign up to be notified once the tutorials are up and running?


discovered this thread just now - just wondering if we could get an update on the progress of this?

will the books be paper-based? or eDocs? and any date for release yet?

excited to hear more


this looks good @prko but Kindle only? would love a PDF


I purchased a licence of Kindle edition of this book.
I can read it under macOS, Window, android and iOS as well as in Chrome.
I am satisfied with Amazon Kindle edition.


@prko I’ve gone ahead and bought it, it’s a very nice starter guide thanks :slight_smile:


i hope this doesn’t come off the wrong way, but i’d like to politely ask the community to hold off on inquiring about progress. it will get there when it gets there :slight_smile: we will certainly announce it when it reaches a mature state of development

the current state of the project can be seen at the github repository at: contributions are appreciated.
