SoundProcesses builds with sbt against Scala 2.12, 2.13, Dotty (JVM), and Scala 2.13 (JS). The last version to support Scala 2.11 was 3.31.0. The dependencies should be downloaded automatically from Maven Central repository.
The Scala.js support it is still in experimental stage. Linker errors and bugs are to be expected here.
The following submodules are available:
"de.sciss" %% "lucre-synth" % v // transactional layer for ScalaCollider "de.sciss" %% "soundprocesses-core" % v // everything but views and compiler "de.sciss" %% "soundprocesses-views" % v // common swing views "de.sciss" %% "soundprocesses-compiler" % v // compiler integration

- currently, constant
Exprobject do carry an
idand thus are not identical to each other when created repeatedly even with the same peer constant. This was done in order to satisfy
Objproperty, e.g. for any
IntObjincluding its constants. A future version may go back to 'cheap' constants which must be explicitly lifted if one wants to access
