General Board / SFEDIT CUTMANY
« Last post by Seán on June 23, 2022, 01:22:22 PM »
Hello all,

I have been using CDP for a number of years now but have only just joined to forum. Nice to digitally meet you all!

I had a question re. SFEDIT CUTMANY. When using it in on the command line, (Mac OS 10.14.6) and specifying an output directory that is not the Home directory, it only writes one output slice from a potential many. If I write the output in the Home directory however it successfully writes multiple files. Just wondering if this is expected behaviour, or maybe I am doing something incorrectly?
Thanks in advance, and thanks also to the CDP team for such an amazing and inspiring set of programs!

General Board / CDP and M1
« Last post by ArcherCDP on March 18, 2022, 12:30:15 PM »
Dear CDP users,

We are getting an increasing number of queries about the new Apple M1 machines (ARM architecture).  At the moment we cannot compile for the M1 and request help from the CDP Community.  In the first place, we do not have an M1 machine nor the resources to purchase one (free software has its drawbacks).  Secondly, the SoundLoom GUI is written in TCL/TK using v8.5 and there appear to be various support problems for M1 that concern SoundLoom.

Ways to help:

 - Please let us know if you have successfully compiled the CDP code for the M1 and are able to use CDP with this processor and its related OS.  If so, would you be willing to share the expertise that has enabled you to do this.

 - Forward any information about TCL/TK and M1 support

 - Would someone be willing to try to compile CDP for M1 and correspond with Richard Dobson about how it goes (

 - A final option would be to donate a spare M1 computer to CDP

We have been doing our best to keep up with the many OS changes that Apple have been making, but the M1 is so far a step too far for us.

Please respond to the Forum and/or directly to the CDP email address:

Thanks very much,

The CDP Downloads page (hosted at is currently undergoing revision.

The CDP Documentation download, in particular, is faulty and should NOT be downloaded yet. It will be fully revised very soon and I'll post a notice when it's ready.

If you do not have the current documentation, it can be downloaded at: 
- the full version is called and is dated 30 Oct 2021. An update to this (to match the version on the downloads page) will be available in due course.

Hi, does anyone has information concerning CDP and M1 processors?
Does CDP runs ok with or without Rosetta?
Thank you
Announce / CDP GUIDE
« Last post by Robert Fraser on October 04, 2021, 07:56:12 PM »
A new set of documents called "CDP Guide" has been added to the online CDP Docs and is also available to download. This is a classified guide, which aims to help users find their way around the CDP suite. Although the Reference Documentation also groups functions together, it has become harder with each new release to keep track of related functions, especially as new versions or variations typically have different names.

CDP Guide classifies CDP processes and functions into five categories: Soundfile, Spectral, Pitch-Data, Edit-Mix (incl. Levels, Channels & Spatial) and Other  (Synth, Info, Data, SysUtils). Each function has hyperlinks to the available online Reference and a brief description. This is a personal classification and the descriptions are my own - they do not necessarily reflect the views of CDP. I'm sure there will be inaccuracies, and users are welcome to suggest corrections and amendments (mail[at]

Within the online docs, the Guide is referenced on the Home Page ( and the Tutorials page. The file is available from there or the downloads page (follow DOCS DOWNLOADS on the Home Page index panel). The zip also contains printable PDFs. If you already have the CDP documentation offline, the main folder \guide should be placed at the top level within that (the same level as \html, \demo etc.) for the hyperlinks to work.

Thanks a lot,

I'll start experimenting with this. Yesterday I was reading a book about UNIX and I was trying some FOR loops with no luck. But this is the key of everything. I'll try this and practice with it.

Thanks again,
