Kronos Meta-Sequencer -- From Ugens to Orchestra, Score and Beyond

This article discusses the Meta-Sequencer, a circular combination of an interpreter, scheduler and a JIT compiler for musical programming. Kronos is a signal processing language focused on high computational performance, and the addition of the Meta-Sequencer extends its reach upwards from unit generators to orchestras and score-level programming. This enables novel aspects of temporal recursion -- a tight coupling of high level score abstractions with the signal processors that constitute the fundamental building blocks of musical programs.
