SuperClean InstallParty

Welcome one and all to Exploring Technology and this SuperClean InstallParty.

Download SuperCollider

Download Sc3plugins

If for some reason there is some kind of snag regarding that whole downloading stuff from The Public Internet maneuver, then let me know through email and I’ll sort you out. You can find my address on my index page. Now boot up SuperCollider. Copy this line and paste it into SuperCollider:


Make sure the text cursor is on the line and the press cmd + Enter. The post window will let you know how the installation is going. It looked like this on my computer:

Installing SuperClean
SuperClean installed
-> Quark: SuperClean[]

Next let’s go to File, Open user support directory. This is a hidden place on your computer. If you ever need to get back here then, now you know how. Grab hold of the folder called sc3plugins and drag it to the Extensions folder. Now open the file superclean_startup.scd and copy that whole mess of text. Go to File, Open startup file, paste into there. Save the file. ReBoot SuperCollider. That should do it!

Let’s try it out by opening examples.scd in SuperCollider. After you see the message SuperClean: Listening on port 57120 everything is ready for you to run the code by pressing cmd + Enter. At this point you should hear something. If no go, then let me know through email and we can work something out that works for you. Now that everybody is up + running the sky is the limit. We could literally have any sound arrive at any time. Go forth in thrash!

Really looking forward to hanging out and getting into SuperClean together on Wednesday, 8 April 2020 12:00 - 13:00 CEST through Exploring Technology.
