README file for Nyquist Version 3.05 13 Mar 2011 Roger B. Dannenberg LICENSE: see license.txt WEB SITE: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~music/nyquist INSTALLING NYQUIST ==================== You can download pre-compiled versions for Windows and OS X. You can compile Nyquist from sources for Windows, OS X, linux, and other versions of Unix. For details, see one of these files: - sys/win/README.txt - sys/mac/README.txt - sys/unix/README.txt IMPLEMENTATION STATUS ===================== Version 3.05 provides: New "UPIC Editor" window in NyquistIDE Fix to escape backslashes in default windows directory Fix to other problems with Preferences Arpeggiator example in nyquist/demos Version 3.04 provides: Updates to libraries, including liblo and PortAudio Documentation uses both syntax SAL and Lisp syntax Some STK instruments have been added Build files modified to make 32-bit code even on 64-bit architectures (Nyquist only runs in 32-bit mode) Version 3.03 provides: Bug fix to Markov pattern generator (see make-markov). Update to current (24-feb-09) liblo library. Slight change to license.txt to comply wiht two LGPL library licenses: libsndfile and liblo. score-sort can sort very big scores now using iterative merge sort Version 3.02 provides: Uses libsndfile and recent version of portaudio.

NyqIDE has better parsing for paren balancing NyqIDE upgrade to WindowsXP and Delphi 6 NyqIDE increases input string length maximum NyqIDE prompts on save conflict added voice-synthesis demo from Eduardo Miranda corrected absolute path in demos/pmorales/e2.lsp minor documentation and indexing improvements pointer to demo docs goes on start menu now Version 2.25 provides: new way to provide search path: set *SEARCH-PATH* to a string, e.g. (SETF *SEARCH-PATH* "C:/program files/nyquist/runtime,c:/program files/nyquist/lib") allowing Nyquist to be run without setting registry. Version 2.24 provides: text editing for command lines in Linux version Version 2.23 provides: bug fix in (current-path) for Mac fixes to some Mac sources corrupted in 2.22 Version 2.22 provides: documentation (HTML) included in release now bug fix for Mac console output exceeding 32K limit protection from playing very high sample rates in Win32 (crashes in Windows MME library!) change s-save to take :endian rather than :swap parameter pianosyn.lsp runs on the Mac now demos/examples.lsp generates audio with "normal" sample rates Version 2.21 provides: s-plot uses gnu-plot in Linux separation from CVS -- I just couldn't keep beating my head against the wall Version 2.20 provides: improved Macintosh support Version 2.19 provides: integration of Macintosh code (from v2.12) addition of PLUCK and BUZZ synthesis functions Version 2.18 provides: bug fix in midifile read routine under Linux Version 2.17 provides: bug fix for long line input under linux and windows biquad filters hzosc osc-tri osc-saw osc-pulse -- new oscillator variants bug fix for reading in non-AIFF files with 'FORM' headings extension to s-read to support explicit byte-swap parameter Version 2.16 provides: bug fix in tables (lookup oscillators and other functions) Windows GUI version of Nyquist Version 2.15 provides: port to Linux Version 2.5 provides: more signal processing functions Version 2.2 provides: ports to more systems including Win32 (Win95 and NT) bug fixes more signal processing functions improved sound I/O subsystem Version 2.1 provides: bug fixes documentation and code for user extensions Version 2.0 provides: continuous time warps many more functions bug fixes The distribution may contain sources for Nyquist. If not, you got the runtime distribution, and there is a source version available. A number of "source" files are machine generated, including: - many .c and .h files that implement signal processing functions. These are generated by translation system that converts .alg files to .c and .h files. .alg files give high-level descriptions of DSP algorithms. - Makefile.* is generated by "makefile.lsp". The status is: System Status RS6K = RS6000, AIX untested, but used to work NEXT = NeXT 3.0 (Cube) untested, but worked fine on a previous version SGI = ??? untested, but used to work PMAX = Mach 2.5 on Dec workstation untested, but worked in previous version SPARC = Sun Sparc ??? untested - previous version of Nyquist DID work LINUX = Linux tested Win32 tested Mac tested If you have problems running Nyquist on a Unix machine, I'd be happy to help. I can give you advice or if you give me an account, I can log in remotely and install Nyquist for you. If you make corrections yourself, please let me have them so I can put them in the next release. DIRECTORY STRUCTURE =================== cmt - CMU MIDI Toolkit files, used by Nyquist for MIDI File I/O demos - Nyquist demos go here fft - some fft functions lib - .lsp files offering extensions to Nyquist misc - various files and programs used to implement Nyquist nyqsrc - general Nyquist source code (mostly in C) runtime - the Nyquist and XLisp runtime code (mostly in XLisp) sys - system specific files snd - the sound file, sound input, and sound output package test - test code (this is not maintained and may not be in the release) todo - list of things to do (this may not be in the release) tran - descriptor (.alg) files for machine-translated Nyquist code xlisp - sources for Xlisp (these are linked into Nyquist)
