I decided again to use Cabbage, because it is from what I know, the only csound front end that has such a quantity of widgets and of such quality, and also the ability to make independent applications (even if you have to install csound first - for java applications, you must also install java first). I am also very interested in being able to use tabs, thanks to groupboxes that can be made visible and invisible.
There are a few aspects that surprise me a bit, like for example the fact that the patch starts when you do cmd-s / ctrl -s but I guess that is useful when you want to quickly test changes in your code.
I don’t mind using file () to populate listboxes and comboboxes, anyway I will use it to display things that are already on disk.
On the other hand, it’s a bit annoying that align () doesn’t work correctly with listbox, and I find it quite weird to see the contents of the listboxes in the center instead of being on the left.
Regarding multichannel, my presonus sound card is unfortunately broken, and I do not yet know enough the new that I have now, but I could see by looking at the patcher, that the number of outputs corresponds well to the number of inputs, however the number of entries is always 2. It would be nice if it all worked out perfectly, you know that I’m not the only one interested in this.
In the meantime, I could start csound with the terminal and control it with a cabbage project with OSC when I need 8 inputs / 8 outputs.
Anyway, I’m still impressed with the amount of work you’ve done, as well as the time you take in this forum answering questions and giving advice to users.
