If you want to use JUCE then you should use Grace. The code should build in JUCE 5 but I havent tried it in juce 6 at all, so there may be some effort there.

I am not sure which version I want. Which one is the most kept up, or are they both kept up? Is there any benefit for either choice?

Hi Brandon, are you trying to build the common lisp version or the S7/Grace version?  If the latter you should get the sources from its github home, there is a readme that should get you going. Im not sure what will happen in JUCE 6 let me know if you are having issues compiling:


Ill have some more news about this in perhaps 10 days.

Hello all,

I have heard from one of my previous professors about the cool things one can do with Common Music. I am really interested in setting this up to play with it. I tried to build Common Music on my Artix Linux setup (Arch Linux without systemd) and it won't compile, even though I think I have all of the dependencies. I don't know if I have all of the JUCE dependencies, as the readme file that comes with the source code has a dead<http://www.rawmaterialsoftware.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6502&hilit=juce+linux+install> link, but I do have JUCE installed on my system from the official repository.

Does anyone on this list use Common Music on Arch and have a package or a PKGBUILD at all? I would be extremely interested in that. If not, maybe I can post the compiler output and see what the issues are.

Thank you very much for your help on this matter,

Brandon Hale
