OpenMusic libraries contain extra tools dedicated to specific purposes.
A default folder for dynamically loadable libraries is created by OM:
- In OM 6.12 or earlier: within the OM application directory (OM 6.xx/libraries/)
- In OM 6.13 or newer: in your home directory (~/OM/Libraries/)
You can also add extra libraries folder and register them in OM:
- Create a directory “Libraries” (or any other name) somewhere in your computer (but not in the OM directory!).
- Put your own libraries in this folder
- Register this directory in the OM Preferences (“Libraries” tab, external user lib directories).
- If necessary, use the menu item “File/Refresh Libraries Package…” on the Library window in order to update the libraries list.
Note: Libraries can also be loaded as “Remote User Libs” (see “Library” window, Menu “File”).
See in the Developer resources for instructions about how to write your own OM library.
Most OpenMusic libraries can be found and downloaded from https://github.com/openmusic-project/.
