Welcome!

December 21, 2014: nGen 2.1.2 is the newest version (the manual has also been updated).  A Windows7+ version is now available!

nGen is a free multi-platform computer-music application by composer Mikel Kuehn that creates computer music event-lists. The current version (2.1.2) makes Csound event lists ("score" files) and standard MIDI files. Currently the source code for nGen is not available, but I hope to make it open source in the near future.

You can browse the manual online to get an idea of how nGen works. Included in the manual are a host of inline examples as well as links to fully functional example files (with companion Csound orchestras).
