CDP GRAPHIC PROGRAMS
Graphical User InterfacesVarious front-ends give access to the CDP system:
Sound LoomSupports the full set of CDP processes, plus some extras. Available for PC and Mac.
SoundshaperSupports the full set of CDP processes. Currently available for PC only.
Built around a multi-process patch grid and supports mono/stereo/multi-channel input.
Renoise CDP InterfaceA new interface integrated into the RENOISE DAW, supporting most CDP processes.
The interface is multi-platform and is currently the only working CDP interface for LINUX.
CDP Plugin for ReaperA beta plugin for the REAPER DAW, currently supporting a limited number of CDP processes.
Can process selected clips within a track and includes a preview facility.

ProcessPackA graphic program suite complementary to CDP, with an emphasis on algorithmic procedures in micro-time.
AL/ErwinAL is an algorithmic compositional environment for the creation and manipulation of sonic events and their organization into a structured musical work. ERWIN is a plug-in for AL applying the solutions of Schroedinger's equation to the creation of granular clouds.
By the same author (available separately):
CloudsClouds implements real-time asynchronous granular synthesis, with four audio buffers, comprehensive controls and up to 8-channel output.
Tabula Vigilans*Tabula Vigilans ('T-V') is an advanced (non-graphic) scripting language, aimed at algorithmic composition. As a score processor, it can define and replay anything from completely conventional melodic and harmonic music to envelope-shaped multi-event textures with random features. T.V. can operate as a real-time MIDI instrument to play pre-programmed or instantly generated music under mouse or keyboard control. It can also call and run any of the CDP programs, in command line form.
* Though not currently included in the CDP download, T.V. is available on request from CDP.
