SoundMagic - and Input from AudioUnits to SuperCollider?


Through some works of a colleague, I recently came across the SoundMagic-Spectral suite of free AudioUnits Soundmagic Spectral - Michael Norris, Composer. This seems a very impressive and useful tool. 2 Questions:

  • Has anyone built synthdefs that emulate these spectral audio units in supercollider?
  • Is it possible to input live audio from AudioUnits in SuperCollider, so as to use the original SoundMagic here?

You can use LADSPA and VST plugins, if the plugin is real-time safe, it works just like a UGen. See:

I’m not sure about AudioUnit, I think it’s not possible yet
