Alex Shaw runs a small software consultancy with an taste for creative applications and experimentation. His first Android project was Synthulator, one of the first music composition tools on Android to use an extensible DSP engine. Working with Dan Stowell, he has helped bring the expressive power of the SuperCollider server to Android, and hopes it will spearhead a new era in embedded music creation.
SuperCollider and Android
Dan Stowell / Alex Shaw
SuperCollider's audio server has great potential as an audio engine for mobile applications, and Android offers an interesting mobile OS for a variety of devices. Dan and Alex will describe the Android infrastructure and how SuperCollider's architecture fits into this ecosystem. Then they will describe their port of scsynth to Android, demonstrating some of the applications they have created, and how you can do interesting sound things on Android right now.
