I wanted to start making music with tidal, so installed everything following the instructions from the userbase. Everything seems to be working, but I get no sound when sending commands to SuperCollider from Atom. SC get the command (tried with a non existing sound and I get an error message), but no sound is played. Instead, I just get the error:
Buffer UGen: no buffer data over and over again in the post window.
s.options.numBuffers in the SC startup file from 1024 * 16 to 1024 * 32, hoping that messing a bit with this would help but it doesn't.
I got through the Troubleshooting steps but nothing in it seems to match with my problem.
This has probably already been solved elsewhere but I can't find anyhing relevant.
Thanks for your help
Yes seems that you have gone quite deep with the troubleshooting already.
Could you share the post window output that you get when you start superdirt? Maybe there is a clue there.
Okay so upon investigation, when SuperDirt is starting (I put the
SuperDirt.start in the startup file so it launches basically right after I open SC.) I get a loooong scrolling display of
File 'C:\Users\Rémy\AppData\Local\SuperCollider\downloaded-quarks\SuperDirt\classes\..\..\Dirt-Samples\stomp\003_2.wav' could not be opened
with what seems to be pretty much every file in the downloaded-quarks folder, saying that it couldn't find the specified directory.
I checked and the folder exists, is in the right place and seems to contain all of the .wav files
Hm, could it be a permissions problem?
Ah it seems to be a problem with the accent in your name. https://github.com/supercollider/sc3-plugins/issues/188
This seems to have been fixed, so upgrading supercollider should hopefully solve it.
Right, never thought having a French name would mess so much with computers, so I upgraded to SC 3.11.2 and everything works fine !
Well.. at least the first
d1 $ sound "bd sn" is working, now starts the hardest part: learning how to use all of this, I guess I have a lot of reading and video-watching to do.
Thanks a lot !
Great have fun!
I was also having trouble drawing sound out of this silent rock of a Macbook for the past week, and upgrading SuperCollider also fixed my issue ! I've tried just about everthing else -- time to get back to building
