Awesome Supercollider Save Abandoned

ARCHIVED:???? A community curated list of SuperCollider stuff

Project README


This repo has been archived since I cannot maintain it anymore and noone has stepped up to take over. The info is still good but out of date (especially in the quarks department). Feel free to fork if you want to take over this project.
