Hello there, Welcome to in_thread, the Sonic Pi community.
Here you’ll find lots of lovely Sonic Pi coders sharing ideas, thoughts and good will.
We welcome you with open arms…
[P] - Patreon Supporters
There are a number of categories that start with [P] in their name. This are free to read by anyone, but to create new conversations and get involved with existing ones, you need to become a Patreon supporter: https://patreon.com/samaaron. This support will help to keep Sonic Pi free for everyone.
When you’re ready, please do create a new topic introducing yourself using the category “Introductions & Stories” - we’d love to hear your story about how you discovered Sonic Pi and what you use it for.
This site is organised as a number of topics each belonging to a category. For example, the topic “How do I reverse a sample?” will likely belong to the category “Help & Support”. A given topic may then have a thread of replies just like you might see on Twitter. These replies typically should attempt to stay on topic - otherwise it might be time to start a new topic to discuss
(For those used to mailing lists, the topic can be roughly seen as the email subject.)
If any of this is confusing - please feel free to ask questions on Twitter - @Sonic_Pi and we’ll do our best to help you settle in and feel comfortable.
Please use this community to share your thoughts and ideas freely. The hope is that together we can help and support one another not just now but in a sustainable way for the future. Let’s work together to share the joy of creative coding with the world
You may use Markdown to format your posts. This allows you do things like italics, bold,
code_blocks and much more with a simple syntax. Take a look at the following table for some hints:
|_Italic words_||Italic words|
|**Bold words**||Bold words|
|# Main Heading||
|## Sub Heading||
Starting and finishing multiple lines of code with ``` will format the code nicely and also colour it in similar to Sonic Pi’s editor.
So, for example,
live_loop :foo do
play :e1, release: 0.1, cutoff: 70
use_synth :tb303 use_bpm 45 live_loop :foo do play :e1, release: 0.1, cutoff: 70 sleep 0.125 end
See the following Markdown cheat sheet for more examples
