Release 1


Orca is finally out of beta! This latest version features a revamped spec which we think should be solid enough, for the foreseeable future, and a set of operators that offers the widest range of possibilities while remaining predictable and accessible. We would love to give our thanks to the amazing community that developed around Orca. You've been amazing to us.

Cheers!

with there be any mouse input added,. or should I work on my own implementation?

Left Click jump cursor to position,  hold to drag a selection box,. Right Click to move around the the grid,. Mouse wheel to zoom,.  .etc.

We will never add mouse picking to Orca, you should go ahead and implement it yourself. 

I recommend adding mouse events to cursor.js

I'm very curious about this.  i am a sound designer and composer.  how do i use this software?

Mhmm, you might wanna watch this video.

Thanks!

ORCA is one of the most beautiful and thoughtful environments I've ever seen. Simply stunning. Thank you for the inspiration!

I love this, I would love to see more operators and operators inside operators like a second window. Also would be cool if you could integrate Pilot into Orca so that it is one window. ALSO, I only have found the Alleyway Audio tutorial and she has only done 2 of them (which are great), I'd love to see more tutorials. Great work!

Thanks for your comment :) 

If you like Allie's videos, you should tell her! We would love to see more as well.

It's by design that Orca and Pilot are not combined, that would open the door to having other non general-programming tools like a visualizer, and so on. We prefer to keep orca lean, as just an IDE for a programming language that can be hooked into other thing. Orca will never generate sounds or visuals.

Cool! I hope you continue to develop it, I really am having fun with it!
