algorithmic modeling for Rhino
With the release of the third major update, I thought it would be a good idea to have a better place to exchange.
So here's the EsquisSons group!
Esquissons is a plugin for grasshopper linked to a standalone app which aims to help you design with sound !
it is basically a tool to hear what you sketch and to design according to this sound feedback. The aim here is to use sound as a building material from the early stages of sketching and not to simulate an extremely accurate final rendering.
The software interaction between sound and parametric space modeling is embodied in a 3D sketch modeled in Grasshopper and an acoustic sketch in a stand-alone application developed on MAXMSP, interactively connected to each other. Thus, the program is developed as an auralization tool rather than a calculation tool. It is indeed a question of being able to sketch a sound scene and thus inform the model.
New in V.3 :
> Comes with an installer > Crossplatform (Mac/windows) > Improved optimisation > new stuff/functions > new icons ;)
What's in EsquisSons ?___
Listener : Place/Move the listening point in the scene, choose its orientation and size
Geometry : Determine the phonic opacity of a geometry but also its absorption coefficient
Sources : Position the source in the model, determine its size and choose the sound file it will play
Option for sources : Mute a source, manually adjust its volume and choose the degree of shuffle!
Built-in Sound : New simpler interface in the form of a list to access the built-in sounds. (more built-in sounds)
Main Engine : Optimized component (faster), you can lock the sources, enable or disable reverb, and choose between an indoor or outdoor sketch. The component returns, in addition to the sound, a visualization in the form of rays as well as the reverberation time per source and the amount of reverberation (mix) per source.
Visualize Rays : You can choose how many rays are visible, at what distance from the source and the number of bounces you want to see !

The new version (v3.0.1) available on F4R solves the problem:
"Solution exception: Local variable 'RT_bySource' referenced before assignment."
For the moment it is a replacement of the compiled Main_engine component by its little brother (originally written for MACs) : an User_Object. I have therefore updated the installer, as well as the installation path of EsquisSons on windows. It will now be installed in the "Libraries" directory of grasshopper for less mess on your computer. The launcher has also been updated to get "Esquissons.exe" from the right place.
Hi Theo,I have modelled up a simple site with some sounds in different locations. In the attached files I am trying play the 'Urban' and 'Birds' sounds, however when I go to simulate the sounds in…Continuer
