Playing code through DAW


#1

Hi There :

I’m new on Sonic Pi,

i’ve already read “Quick Start” tutorial and

"Creative programming workshop with Sonic Pi ".

Am not figured out, how can i to play my code through a DAW ?,

and set it up into multiple channels for especific synths ?

I use Reason 7,and it supports several midi control messages;

i’d like to send it too,while code is playing.

Can someone write me the code for it ?

Thank you in advance !

Hey, welcome!

You should be able to send midi to a DAW using this code:

#Sending midi with Sonic Pi

live_loop :channel1 do
  midi 62, channel: 1
  sleep 0.5
end

live_loop :channel2 do
  midi 74, channel: 2
  sleep 0.75
end

I´m using Sonic Pi as a sequencer for Ableton live and Reaktor and it works fine.
When using it with Ableton, I have to open Ableton first, then Sonic Pi for the midi connection to work.

Also check the ‘language’ documentation on midi in the help section of Sonic Pi.

Cheers.

Hi Gisbert:

Thank you very much !
I was using a similar program before called “ChucK”,
but this one is much more affordable.

I’ll try as you said.

Best regards !
