Prerequisites

The following are required:

The following are optional:

  • SC3 Plugins - you may need the SuperCollider sc3-plugins if you want to use any of the synths included in SuperDirt. Most of the examples in the documentation will still work, so you could skip this step and return to it later.

Install TidalCycles

From a terminal, type and run these two commands:

cabal update
cabal install tidal

If you've never installed TidalCycles before, then the cabal install tidal step may take some time. At the end of the command output, it should say Installed tidal-x.x.x (where x.x.x is the latest version number) without any errors.

Install SuperDirt

Start SuperCollider, and in the editor window paste in the following line of code:

include("SuperDirt")

Run the code by clicking on it, to make sure the cursor is on this line, then hold down Shift and press Enter. This will download SuperDirt and you will see it has completed when the Post Window displays:

... the class library may have to be recompiled.
-> SuperDirt

After it has completed, you will need to restart SuperCollider (or alternatively, recompile the class library via the “Language” menu).
