I am new to csound, and am running csound 4.32f12 on my Debian
sarge home system. I have got to the point where I can make simple
tunes with a .sco file, using a simple and standard .orc file.
I have two questions:
1. in my .orc file, I have the line
kctrl line 5000, p3, 3000 ; amplitude envelope
which I sort of understand . . . except for the kctrl word. I have
grepped in the manual for ctrl and find setctrl, ctrl14, ctrl21, etc,
but no simple ctrl.
2. In my various .sco files, I have to keep inserting pitches, like
440(A), 660(E), etc. For present, and especially for later work
(e.g. dividing the octave into, say, 15 equal tones), I'd like to
make a table so that I can access these tones by number. There
are builtin codes, e.g. cpspch, to do this; but I want to create
my own. Can this be done, and if so, how?
Many thanks in advance for assistance!
