At the Sounding Edge: What's Going On with Csound?
Although it is not a part of any official Csound package, I must make special mention of developer Steven Yi's blue, a powerful graphic environment for producing music with Csound. blue is a Java-based application that accommodates any version of Csound and includes a number of graphic tools for the creation of Csound scores and instruments. Alas, I don't have space in this article to describe adequately blue's extensive capabilities, but Figure 5 should give you some idea of blue's resources.
I hope you've been intrigued by this sneak peek at the new world of Csound. For all the new flashy gear and software that the music industry pours forth, none of it seems to equal the sheer power of Csound. Yes, you have to learn how to use it, but ample documentation and many tutorials are available on-line. In addition, a sizable number of excellent pieces composed entirely with Csound can be found on the Internet. Csound may be the oldest SWSS language that continues to be in constant use, and its recent developments indicate that it will be in constant use a good while longer.
I would like to thank the following people for their tremendous efforts in keeping Csound alive and healthy: John ffitch (El Maestro), Richard Boulanger, Richard Dobson, Michael Gogins, Matt Ingalls, Steven Yi, and Istvan Varga all deserve great praise, and I must especially thank John ffitch and Istvan Varga for their dedication to UNIX/Linux Csound and for their unstinting assistance to this perpetual Csound newbie.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
