I purchased the book 'Notes from the Metalevel' a while ago, hoping to be
able to learn CM, and while going through the examples given in the book, i
discovered that they do not work with the software that came with the CD in
the book (Common Music 2.4.2)
I downloaded the latest version of GraceCL / CM (3.2.4) and the examples
from the book do not work there either.
Going through the example programs that came with the GraceCL 3.2.4, i
noticed that some of them do not work either, at least not with my setup
(Win XP + Midi Yoke -> Ableton 7.10), despite getting the MIDI test output
I was able to get the foster.sal program to work once with one voice after
modifying the output in the code and commenting out the midi program change,
but i was unable to get it working again, despite multiple reboots and
I also unsuccessfully attempted to get the program to output a complete midi
My question is: Is there a version of Common Music that works with the
examples that came with the book?
I really don't care how old or outdated the version is, even if it doesn't
have real-time MIDI output.. i would rather have something that works with
the examples in the book, than a totally undocumented 'newer' version with
easier syntax and fancy features.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
