This installation installs a full Tidal environment and its dependencies (Git, Haskell, Atom, SuperCollider, SuperDirt and the default Dirt samples). It assumes that these components aren't installed already. If they are, you might be better off installing the other components by hand

Installation is a three step process. It is mostly automated, but expect windows to give a few security pop-ups for you to accept.

Here we go:

1. Open a windows powershell in 'admin' mode. You can do this by holding down the windows key and pressing 'x', then choosing Windows PowerShell (admin) in the menu that pops up

2. If you haven't already got chocolatey installed, install it by pasting in and running this command:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))

3. Once that's run, install tidal and all its dependencies by pasting in this command:

choco install tidalcycles -y --version=1.4.3

You can then Start tidalcycles and superdirt for the first time to test it out.

Please let us know how it went, both good and bad! Be sure to send us any error messages you get in full. Either catch us on the tidal-install TOPLAP channel, or you can email alex@slab.org.

Thanks!
