Generally a proxy is a placeholder for something. A node proxy is a placeholder for something playing on a server that writes to a limited number of busses (e.g. a synth or an event stream). NodeProxy objects can be replaced and recombined while they play. Also they can be used to build a larger structure which is used and modified later on. Overview: JITLib
a Server object. Note that on remote computers the clock must be in sync.
a Symbol. If a name is given, the proxy space is stored in
for event-based or beat-sync playing use a TempoClock.
replace the currentEnvironment with a new ProxySpace and clear the current one, if it is a ProxySpace (this is to avoid piling up proxy spaces).
In order to move to another ProxySpace while keeping the current, use pop and then push a new one. To have multiple levels of proxy spaces, use .new.push;
restore the previous currentEnvironment
clear all registered spaces
returns a group that plays the NodeProxy at that key.
output channel offset
play this number of channels.
returns a RecNodeProxy that records the NodeProxy at that key.
returns a NodeProxy output that plays the NodeProxy at that key, to be used within a function used as input to a node proxy
when the proxyspace is created without a running server this method can be used. To run it (internally this is done by -play as well).
set the fadetime of all proxies as well as the default fade time
set the clock of all proxies as well as the default clock.
set the quant of all proxies as well as the default quant.
free all proxies (i.e. free also the groups, do not stop the monitors)
release all proxies (i.e. keep the groups running)
stop all proxies (stop only monitors, do not stop synths)
end all proxies (free and stop the monitors)
clear the node proxy and remove it from the environment. this frees all buses. If a fadeTime is given, first fade out, then clear.
add the ProxySpace to the repository (name required)
remove the ProxySpace from the repository
The rate and numChannels of the NodeProxy determined in a lazy way from the first object put into this environment (see helpfile). Once it is created it can only be set to a function that returns the same rate and a number of channels equal to the intial one or smaller. For details, see the_lazy_proxy.
Return the proxy source object at that key.
free and remove all proxies that are not needed in order to play the ones passed in with 'exclude'. if none are passed in, all proxies that are monitoring (with the .play message) are kept as well as their parents etc.
free all proxies that are not needed in order to play the ones passed in with 'to'. if none are passed in, all proxies that are monitored (with the play message) are kept as well as their parents etc.
Copies the environment into a new one, with each proxy being copied as well (See: NodeProxy: -copy). Also the instance variables that determine the ProxySpace behaviour are included, such as server, fadeTime, quant, reshaping (this happens in the
creates a new document with the current proxyspace state. This does not allow open functions as proxy sources. see: jitlib_asCompileString.
