Csound 3.481 on m68k
After hours of searching for any old sources of csound I found 3.481 - an early linux port. The aminet version of csound is a version 1 binary with fewer opcodes than this version.

It always irked me that the csound devs dropped m68k support. Csound has been through version 4 and now is at version 5 (6 is along the way). Later versions include interfaces to the python language.

Anyway I have got 3.481 to compile with gcc 2.95.3 and am currently testing 060, 030 and 020 versions. Some things aren't working, like saving to wav - saving to aiff works fine tho.

For any that are interested check csounds.com to find out waht this amazing music language can do.

After testing, I may package this up and stick up on aminet and work on a version 4 binary.


P.S. mods if this is in the wrong section, pls. move

@squid: isn't quiety old gcc 2.95 ?

squidbass 16 July 2013 10:33

Yes it an older GCC (but supposedly more stable than 3.3) - the sources are from around 1998 so 2.95 may be a better choice. I will do some compiles with 3.3 though when I get time.

If you want to hear what csound can do, head over to http://www.csounds.com/compositions/ where there are mp3s (as well as orc/sco files) of some famous compositions.

@squidbass: yes stable, and yes if the source are old that gcc should be fine. I remember people who spent time to convert source for gcc 3.3.
Thank you for the link, currently I'm listening bergeman.mp3
