Re: Sonic-Pi 2 performs......

Yes I wasn't sure how to refer to these either. I didn't compose the pieces as they are as you say covers for existing music. Perhaps transcribed would be a better word. It wasn't just a case of entering the notes. There was coding or programming whichever you prefer involved in developing functions...

Sonic Pi 2 preview article

I have been using the beta releases of Sonic Pi 2 for several weeks and thought I would write an article detailing the great improvements that this version is bringing to the original version 1. It is certainly worth waiting for, and you can try the beta which is very stable and can be downloaded fr...
