SuperCollider: *** ERROR: SynthDef startSound not found

I followed the installation guide, but can't get FoxDot to play a sound. Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this?

Upon executing e.g.:

p1 >> pluck([0,2,4], dur=[1,1/2,1/2], amp=[1,3/4,3/4])

SuperCollider complains:

*** ERROR: SynthDef startSound not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found
*** ERROR: SynthDef pluck not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found
*** ERROR: SynthDef makeSound not found
FAILURE IN SERVER /s_new SynthDef not found


  • FoxDot 0.5.2
  • Supercollider 3.8.0
  • Python 3.6.3

P.S. Heard about FoxDot on the PythonBytes podcast

Hi there - thanks for using FoxDot! Did you run FoxDot.start in SuperCollider before opening FoxDot? When you run FoxDot.start, do you get an error?

Thanks!

p.s. thanks for the link to PythonBytes.
