sc_utils: Helper functions ported from SuperCollider to Processing

K http://www.erase.net/.../sc_utils

In support of the p5_sc library, which provides the ability to communicate with SuperCollider's synthesis server from Processing, I've developed and amassed a series of basic helper functions ported from SC's client library. These provide frequently-used operations when interfacing between control and audio-generation objects, including:

  • converting MIDI note values to cps
  • random number generation with nonuniform distribution
  • value clipping
  • mapping between value ranges (linear and exponential)
  • support for Spec objects, including a global named Spec register

It's undocumented, besides code comments, but hopefully useful.
