Focus on Rendering
Considering how busy I've been, it's no wonder that the past few weeks have seen few posts. But I've come out of them with a new goal: to get the renderer working again. At one point, mGen was able to go from nothing to a polished mp3 with a single click. I miss those days! Having to render each composition manually is quite a time-waster.
Building the renderer isn't much fun, since it requires constructing software-dependent macros that are anything but intuitive. Macros, considering their fragile nature, have a tendency to be extremely buggy and difficult to code, since they operate at the level of input control.
Still, re-orienting myself towards the original mGen goal of "one-click compositions" will save a lot of time in the long run.
