I've zipped up my copy of Csound built for doubles that I self
compiled and use on my OSX 10.7 Lion Macbook Pro, and have placed it
I don't know if this will work for everyone or not. Please be careful
if you give this a try!
To try it out, download the file and unzip it. You should see in the
For #1, copy that file into your Users directory, under
~/Library/Java/Extensions. For example, my username for my system is
"stevenyi", so the folder I placed that in is in
For #2, within the Library/Frameworks folder is one called
CsoundLib64.framework. On your system, if you have used the Csound
installer, in /Library/Frameworks, should be a CsoundLib64.framework.
I recommend renaming any existing one to CsoundLib64.framework.bak,
then copying in the above one to the /Library/Frameworks folder.
For #3, within usr/local you will see a lib and bin folder. On your
system, like #2, rename /usr/local/lib to /usr/local/lib.bak and
/usr/local/bin to /usr/local/bin.bak. Then copy the lib and bin
folder here to /usr/local.
The csound executable I have is linked to the CsoundLib64.framework.
(Unlike the Sourceforge installer that has both a csound and
Doing the above three should allow using csound from commandline as
well as via API for blue.
Note: I do have macports installed and I'm not sure if anything from
macports got linked into the binaries I created. If so, you may get
some issues with this build with link errors at runtime. This is hard
for me to diagnose unless I test on another system. If you run into
this, just let me know and I'll try to do another build.
Note 2: I suspect this build will work on 10.6 but I am not certain,
and no ideas about 10.5 or 10.4. Test with caution!
Hopefully this will work and may be useful until the next Csound is released.
