Re: What is Logics Scripter?

Thanks David for links
The Apple one and Codecademy

And yes been trying to go through some of the tutorials

Seems all of them have this is common
function HandleMIDI(event);
Event.send();

I was wondering what are the basic rules that I need know that will work in both JavaScript and Logics Scripter?

Because <html> Did not seem to work I guest it is for web only






Thanks ValliSoftware for that do have a easy JavaScript editor do you have in mind ?

I'm not sure what you mean. Logic's Scripter is a MIDI FX Plug-in that allow you to process MIDI data and that uses JavaScript as its programming language. So you're programming in JavaScript, that's the language. For example read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=145181&p=755446

HTML is another language, different from JavaScript so no, HTML won't help you in Scripter. And indeed, HTML was conceived to layout data in an internet browser.

Pragmatically, I think that one should define a precise goal to achieve, before delving into Scripter.
Such commitment being quite demanding, it should ideally be motivated by concrete results.

I agree. You need a very specific problem to solve, decide on which path you will solve it (Environment ? Scripter ? Tracks Stacks ?etc.) based on each path's pros and cons, then work out how to exactly describe the problem in the chosen area, then the solution will usually be quite simple to find, if not implement.

Long gone are the days (if they ever existed ) where you learned 100% of the craft only to occasionally use 15% of it later on. Today's world of youtube tutorials, blogs and forums gives you the solution to a specific problem immediately, then your task is to connect and not forget all these building blocks.

You'll end up with a much less rigid foundation of knowledge where you pretty much know only what you actually need/use, and glaring holes in between, but hey, if a bird's bones didn't have holes, it wouldn't be able to fly...
