Cant play sounds on FoxDot

Hi,

I am new to FoxDot and SuperCollider. I downloaded and installed both of them. However, when I run the following code:
p1 >> pluck()

I get this constant error from SuperCollider:

*** ERROR: SynthDef startSound not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found
*** ERROR: SynthDef pluck not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found
*** ERROR: SynthDef makeSound not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found

How can I fix this? Thanks for the help

It looks like you didn’t start FoxDot.start in SuperCollider before.
Also did you install the Foxdot quarks in Supercollider ?
Finally, be sure to follow these steps :

  • reboot your computer
  • launch supercollider
  • evaluate FoxDot.start in SuperCollider
  • wait for server to boot (the white font on the bottom of the window changed to yellow then green)
  • run foxdot (in supercollider, you should see all synth and fx load)
  • make great music

Thank you so much! I guess the problem was that I did not reboot my computer. Now it works.
