https://glicol.org/ Based on its Jun 2021 paper, it seems to be a sound server over AudioWorklet. The interesting bit is that unlike SC where user has total control over the server node placements etc., they seem use a selective graph recompilation that automagically picks only changed nodes to replace, whenever the use re-evals their program. So, in a sense like “Ndef on steroids” or rather more like Hot Reload (which isn’t an audio-oriented thing). They alas don’t have much of a musical demo that I could find, but based on the conf. talk another interesting bit is that everything is treated as a parameter, including constants, so the user can change their mind about everything at runtime and Gilcol promises to do the right thing.
So, has anyone here used Gilcol? Impressions relative to SC? Or even SC-based things like Tidal Cycles? Glicol doesn’t seem to support MIDI currently, by the way, according to the paper.
As I was wondering… where’s the basic graph list etc. It turns out they use the browser debugger for that (ctrl+shift+J in Chrome). Shows something like
For their mainpage demo.
