Has a sync input to sychronize its internal grain scheduler clock to an external clock source. The level of detail with which the user is able to manipulate sound in Csound is a tribute to the application’s longevity and the willingness of opcode developers to continue to provide tools that are flexible under a wide range of conditions for producing computer music.
Nuance or shaping the sound, by controlling the amplitude over time, is a primary function of envelopes. GEN04 – Generates a normalizing function. FLslidBnkSetk — modify the values of a slider bank. FLsavesnap — Saves all snapshots currently created into a file. GEN25 — Construct functions from segments of exponential curves in breakpoint fashion.
MixerSend — Mixes an arate signal into a channel of a buss. MixerGetLevel – Gets the level of a send to a buss. The inputs to the semaphore instrument might include various envelopes and instrument hooks, where there would be an envelope to analyze and send back data to the instruments on the state of vibrato, or global amplitudes for example.
GEN12 — Generates the log of a modified Bessel function of the second kind. GEN03 — Generates a stored function table by evaluating a polynomial. JackoAudioOut — Sends an audio signal to a Jack port. GEN02 — Transfers data from immediate pfields into a function table.
FLmouse – Returns the mouse position and the state of the three mouse buttons. FLslidBnkSet — modify the values of a slider bank. GEN14 – Stores a polynomial whose coefficients derive from Chebyshevs of the second kind.
GEN10 — Generate composite waveforms made up of weighted sums of simple sinusoids. GEN24 — Reads numeric values from another allocated function-table and rescales them. Sound Intensity Values C. Reference Orchestra Opcodes and Operators! In this example the frequency modulation employing a low frequency oscillator is changed to amplitude modulation, creating the tremelo effect.
Approaches to expression include aspects such as signal generation and modifiers, audio and MIDI control, and real-time features, all of which can all be controlled at a detailed level using Csound opcodes. JackoInit — Initializes Csound as a Jack client. FLlabel FLloadsnap – Loads all snapshots into the memory bank of the current orchestra.

GEN17 – Creates a step function from given x-y pairs. The call is perfomed in the global environment, and the result the returning value is copied into the Csound output variables specified.
Has a sync input to sychronize its internal grain scheduler clock to an external clock source. FLloadsnap flooper – Function-table-based crossfading looper. Words such as interpretation, groove, feel, stretch etc. FLslidBnkSet – modify the values of a reeference bank.
The Canonical Csound Reference Manual
GEN34 — Generate composite waveforms by mixing simple sinusoids. Tempo and Rhythm Tempo and rhythmic analysis are often used to measure reffrence in performance and to differentiate between peformances. GEN41 — Generates a random list of numerical pairs.
SAMPLES outlines various ways you can record and playback audio samples in Csound; an area that might be of particular interest to those intent on using Csound as a real-time performance instrument. MixerSend — Mixes an arate signal into a channel of a buss. GEN13 — Stores a polynomial whose coefficients derive from the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind. Csound’s FM instrument models and STK models also have a large number of input control variables, many of which are designed to simulate aspects of the physical nature of the sound.
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
GEN23 — Reads numeric values from a text file. Extending Csound by building your own custom expressive opcode can be done as a plugin library or in the manner of a new unit generator. Csound Double bit vs. FLslidBnkGetHandle – gets the handle of last slider bank created.
GEN20 — Generates functions of different windows.
GEN19 — Generate composite waveforms made up of weighted sums of simple sinusoids. This opcode will send note events from a source machine to canoniacl destinations. GEN51 — This subroutine fills a table with a fully customized micro-tuning scale, in the manner of Csound opcodes cpstuncpstuni and cpstmid.
FLmouse — Returns the mouse position and the state of the three mouse buttons.
