Subvert Audio is a music program designed to try and stimulate creativity in the user. To do this, it imposes certain restraints on the user, in an attempt to encourage more creative thought processes, and solutions to the problem these restraints introduce. In addition to the restraints imposed, Subvert Audio strives to encourage exploration of the program, and reward efforts to discover/create new ways of using it. Subvert Audio is a program designed to be subverted, the idea being that in the process of doing so, the user's creativity will be stimulated.
In some ways, the program is similar to graphical music programming languages such as Max/MSP et al. Indeed, prior knowledge of such environments could be seen as beneficial to Subvert Audio's methods of stimulating creativity.
Subvert Audio was developed as the main project for my Masters in Music Technology at Glasgow University.
What's New in This Release:
· Sorted out the configure script so that the SA_USING_WX2_5_3 define is set automatically if you've got that version installed.
· Fixed the unicode issues preventing the load/save mechanism from loading any saved mappings if you're using unicode. Also made it so that the file dialogs start in the current directory, instead of some weird non-existent directory on Linux.
· Fixed unicode bug in saFrame where it would consistently crash using wxWidgets v2.5.3 under linux (strangely, this only happened on my uni machine, despite my laptop having basically the same setup).
