Announce / CDP Release 8
« on: October 27, 2023, 03:40:20 PM »
We are proud to announce CDP's 8th software release, with over 80 new processes written by composer Trevor Wishart. 

Release 8 adds to the CDP's toolset especially in the manipulation of formants, wavecycle distortion, segmentation and repetition, plus new multichannel processes and synthesis functions.

The CDP system is a comprehensive sound design toolkit of over 450 processes. Developed over 35 years, it covers almost every aspect of sound transformation, including many that may be unfamiliar or are presented from an original or compositional viewpoint.

CDP is not a real-time system or a suite of plugins, but transforms sound-files (or their spectral equivalents) to create new sonic material.

CDP is released under a Creative Commons/LGPL licence as free software for MacOS, Windows and Linux, with sources available on GitHub.

Further details,downloads,workshops,tutorials and more can be found at the CDP website:

Get it in the usual way by cloning a new repository

With thanks to John ffitch for getting it all set up.

The recommended build system uses CMake, which will need to be installed separately if not already available.

Building for Windows requires the Mingw command line environment with gcc etc.

Mac installation / Activating CDP_SOUND_EXT under Mac OS X 10.x (Yosemite)

The procedure previously documented for Mountain Lion etc has (again) been discarded by Apple for Yosemite. An immediate consequence of this is that pvoc anal and related programs creating frequency domain files will fail with an error message.

We are in the final stages of updating the whole CDP system to default CDP_SOUND_EXT to wav, but in the short term there is a new recommended procedure. Create a standard text file (e.g. using TextEdit.ap) called "environment.plist" with the following content:

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
    <string>launchctl setenv CDP_SOUND_EXT wav</string>

Copy this file to your Library/LaunchAgents  folder and reboot.

There is every possibility that this will also work for Mountain Lion and Mavericks too, but I am no longer able to confirm that first hand.
