Hi again ChucK users,

ChucKDesigner now has a Python API, so you can set global variables and
fetch them too. Users of Chunity will find it very familiar. Please watch
this video https://youtu.be/U34PyL_zMJ0 to see how to make a drum sequencer
with ChucKDesigner!

> This is the licensing information for TouchDesigner:
> https://docs.derivative.ca/Licensing There is an educational license, and
> there is also a non-commercial option. I personally think that the priced
> options are fair. Suppose you bought it today. The current version of
> TouchDesigner would run on your computer forever, and you are able to
> upgrade to any new version for the next 365 days. After 365 days, you can’t
> upgrade, but whatever version you have before then will continue to work.
> This has many advantages over a monthly subscription service (prices can
> increase, hidden fees), or revenue sharing (App Store, Unity, Unreal), but
> also some disadvantages (no mass marketplace “App Store” equivalent).
> Your concern about relying on closed source software is valid, but it’s
> always a tradeoff. Sometimes closed software is actually well supported and
> worth the price. TouchDesigner has already been around 20+ years too. If
> you have more questions about things more related to TouchDesigner than
> ChucKDesigner or ChucK I would be happy to answer them privately.
> Best,
> David
