Grame is happy to announce a new architecture file for ROS.
ROS is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management. It also provides tools and libraries for obtaining, building, writing, and running code across multiple computers.
The new ros-jack.cpp and ros-jack-gtk.cpp architectures files allow to develop audio modules for ROS. Two main scripts are provided:
- faust2ros compile a .dsp file without user interface
- faust2rosgtk compile a .dsp file with a GTK graphic user interface
For example : faust2ros -install ~/catkin_ws -o harpe4ros harpe.dsp will compile and install in the ROS catkin workspace an harpe package.
A demo is available here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qojImAAzb8
A "Faust day" will be held at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) on January 17th. This free event open to anyone is intended for people who wish to get a broad introduction to Faust. By the end of the day, attendees should know how to write simple Faust codes and convert them into various kind of objects: PD, SuperCollider, CSOUND and Max/MSP externals, iOS and Android apps, Standalone Applications, AU, LV2, VST and LASPA plug-ins, etc.
More informations about this event can be found on the CCRMA website.
Grame is happy to announce the first Faust Open Source Software Competition !
Faust Open-Source Software Competition is intended to promote innovative high-quality free audio software developed with the Faust programming language. The Faust Open-Source Software award will be attributed to the best submission by an international committee of leading experts in the field. The competition is sponsored by Grame, centre national de création musicale. The winning software will receive a 2000€ price to encourage its authors. The results will be announced during the Linux Audio Conference 2015 in Mainz.
