General Board / Newbie question: Process entire folder in Terminal
« Last post by uge on June 02, 2021, 08:02:02 AM »
Hello there,

I'm enjoying using the CDP in Terminal. I would like to know if is possible to use CDP commands with wildcards (*) in order to process entire folders.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Hello, I have the same problem,
I'd appreciate very much any help on how to build CDP7 for Catalina also.

Hi Luis,

Sounds like a CDP error; it's not a Soundshaper error message.  The sample is probably of a type CDP doesn't like. 16-bit is normally fine. If you'd like to send me the sample I'll look into it (email rob<at>ensemble-software<dot>net).

I'm sorry we've nothing in Spanish. (I don't speak the language at all.)  We could try using Google Translate on at least some of the documentation, perhaps, but someone would have to test that the Spanish made sense. If you're up for that, that would be great.

Announce / Soundshaper error when adding 2nd input file

Hello, i'm new on CDP programs and i amazed on how i didn't know about this before hahaha. (i'm not from USA or Europe so there's no information at all on spanish). Now i'm reading the workshops, and had a problem when i was trying to use a WAV sample of my own as a 2nd input with the workshop samples as the first one. the error that i get it's ''SAMPLE-DATA-TYPE error'' i thought that it could be about the bit depth (16) or sample rate but it's just the conventional. What else could it be?  :'( thanks

Any instructions for building on Catalina?
I can't find any on GitHub.

PC Installation / Folder and file names in Soundshaper
« Last post by Robert Fraser on May 13, 2021, 02:59:17 PM »
It has been found that source files will not load in Soundshaper if "special characters" are used in folder names. The problem arose when a user installed CDP and Soundshaper in a folder called "Aplicações", which is Portuguese for "Applications".

Users should stick to Roman-alphabet characters (as used in English) when naming folders and files, i.e.: a-z (lower or upper case) and numbers 0-9.

I have found a code editor, Atom, that is free and allows for creating autocompletion windows very easily. I've made it so that it fills up a whole section of code with all arguments already organized, using variables so that tweaking different arguments is simpler. Also created autocompletion snippets for the basic batch file format, with functions and 'header', as well as snippets for all types of batch for-loop syntaxes in order to iterate over a folder's sound files. Atom also already has batch syntax highlighting available through add-ons, which also makes it easier to work with, and has easy tabs to open text files for inclusion of time variation in processing. Here are two example images.

I plan to, within the near future, creating organized snippets of all processes of CDP in the same format as the example, ideally creating an add-on for Atom so that it is easily installed and used by others. Although I don't know if there are any others out there that would make use of this, I do believe this might be the most streamlined format there is to use CDP with batches, at least under my current, personal needs.

Thanks for the feedback. Really glad to know Soundshaper is still working in Parallels.

I have referenced the online documentation when studying specific modules and have also used the console summary of each processing module in order to refresh my memory on argument order in the past, but both of these options are very crowded with information. I would like if there could be a streamlined, concise and reliable window that would show just the arguments; at leastt for me, it would be quite the game changer.

In the case of the interfaces, I do use Soundshaper when trying to sketch particular sequences of processes as it is faster for me to do so there than in batch scripts. However, when trying to tweak small details on arguments of an already existing batch process, I find it easier and faster to do so with .bat scripts than Soundshaper. If I'm already at this stage, I would rather continue writing scripts than have to change applications.

I might look somewhere like Visual Studio Code or similar code editors and see if there is a possibility to create these autocompletion windows based on CDP processes.

There's nothing like that as far as I know. The console window will show you the usage and most of the parameter ranges and it's easy enough to have that open on the desktop.  Or you can have the online CDP documentation to hand, which is more accurate. But wouldn't it just be easier to use one of the interfaces, which will place all the parameters in the right order and write the scripts for you?
