I’m trying to do something a little weird, and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it in FoxDot.
I’m running on linux with an Alsa-JACK bridge.
First, for the last month I’ve been piping non-audio files like the output of journalctl (which is just a log-file containing text) into aplay. The resulting noise is pretty interesting. I decided it would be fun to put together some tracks in this way. My first approach was to
write BASH scripts to do this (using sox to apply effects). This has been fun and interesting, but I’m not able to change effects while the program is executing, so it is not very suitable for live-coding.
I’d like to use FoxDot for more control. Thus far I’ve tried to convert the files to .wav files such that I might use the loop synth, but this has not worked. I just get silence. I’m able to play other samples fine, so I’m sure its an issue with my particular approach to this issue.
I admit that I am pretty naive regarding the workings of SC and FoxDot, so I apologize if
this question is silly, but I couldn’t find anything about it on the net.
Anyone have any ideas?
