Find the latest update of the tool here;
(latest definitions automatically included in install of the tool)
If you are running into problems with it on windows 7, you probably need to do extra stuff;
The usual cause of this error message is that the environment variable CDP_SOUND_EXT has not been defined (to wav). This can be done via Control Panel->System Settings->Advanced->Environment Variables.
We are in the process of preparing an update release (all platforms) where this variable is internally preset to wav by default, so that setting it explicitly will be optional. We will of course announce the update here, as well as on the CDP download page.
Apparently there are also permission issues on certain Mac OS versions;
Installation on Mountain Lion and Mavericks.
Admin permissions will be required to complete the installation.
It has transpired that Apple made unannounced changes in these versions of OS X which
mean that the settings created and configured by the installer are simply ignored. This
affects primarily the installation of environment variables (which need to be visible to
Soundloom as well as to the command line programs). We have yet to identify a
compatible substitute for the functionality lost by this OS change.
Instructions on completing the installation by hand are provided
in the supplied file "Manualconfig.pdf".
For pro support there is the CDP forum;
just received notice that a formerly 250 dollar dsp package called CDP is now downloadable for free! (http://www.unstablesound.net/cdp.html)
..an ever evolving set of sound design and sound processing tools, to be used offline (non-real time processing), which incorporate some unique DSP algorithms to process sound files in interesting ways. could be used on individual samples or an entire track or composition.
It is developed in the academic Electro Acoustic arty-farty world and there have been 2 main programs for using it (Soundshaper & Soundloom). Both pretty archaic in use and hard to grasp.
I propose a Renoise lua tool front-end for the CDP processing set which can be used in Renoises sample editor (similar to how the Akaizer & rubberband tool use external .exe's). :drummer:/> A front end in which you can control the commandline structure, values through sliders/knobs.
I once acquired version CDP 5 for doing a review and managed to use Johann's 'run cmnd on selection' tool with it ( http://sandboxx.org/...e/3339/details/ ), maybe this tool is a good starting point?
If no one will pick this up, it might be a good project for myself to learn Lua, but I unfortunately have no time at the moment />
