Gest is a gesture sequencer, a hybrid between a step sequencer and automation curve editor. It will produce audio-rate control curves externally controlled by a clock signal.
The core gest program is written in ANSI C as a literate program. Also included is the lilgest commandline utility that allows Gest to interact with DSP algorithms from sndkit using the LIL scripting language.
Worgle: needed to tangle things to C code.
sndkit: required to build the lilgest utility.
A standard C compiler and Make build system.
Build things by running "make".
An overview of Gest with examples using
sndkit can be found in
viewed online with audio examples.
There is also a test C program called example.c that shows how to interact with Gest in C via the sndkit C API.
For more detailed information on the guts of Gest, there is always the program itself.
