The jack package

[ Tags: gpl, library, sound ] [ Propose Tags ]

Very basic bindings for the JACK Audio Connection Kit. It has support both for PCM audio and MIDI handling.

In order to adapt to your system, you may have to disable pkgConfig or jackFree cabal flags.

Jack - Bindings to the JACK Audio Connection Kit for Haskell

It's far from being finished...


    runhaskell Setup configure
    runhaskell Setup build
    runhaskell Setup haddock    # if you want
    sudo runhaskell Setup install

You need JACK for this to work...

You should compile your clients with 'ghc --make -O2 -threaded ...'
