Donate a name

Work on the mlr-ish SuperCollider app is going well. Mute groups are working correctly and now I'm starting to implement pattern recording. With the help of people on the sc-users mailinglist I've been able to get unit tests working, which speeds up the whole bug-catching and fixing cycle.

It would be handy to have a name for this clone already. I like the idea of naming it after an animal but didn't find anything suitable yet. All suggestions are welcome!

As soon as I have a version that does pattern recording, and preset saving/loading, I'll publish the code so if anyone else wants to extend it in their own way, it should be possible.

Wonderful idea! I've been jotting down things I'd like to tweak about MLR, but without access to Max/MSP there's nothing I've been able to do about it. Hopefully the work you're doing will give me (and others in the same boat) the chance to develop and share our modifications to this brilliant concept!

Good luck, and let me know if you'd like any help!

Thanks very much john. Do you already use SuperCollider?

I've never actually developed anything using SuperCollider, but I'm a software engineer by trade and have been looking for a good excuse to spend some time with the environment. There's nothing better than a compelling project when it comes to spinning up on a new language!
