As of now, tidal version 0.9 is not yet released, safe plan is to wait until it is released and then do a

cabal install tidal

as usual.

If you really, really need the newest, bleeding edge, development version of tidal (0.9-dev), you should be familiar with a shell and know about version control tools.

Disclaimer (Warning): Installing tidal from source can easily break your current (working) tidal setup. The following instructions install the latest development tidal into whatever cabal is configured to install to and depends on the user you run it from.

To install the development version of tidal from source: use version control (git) to download the tidal source code:

git clone --branch=0.9-dev

move inside the cloned source directory, and run:

cabal install

Whenever new changes appear on the 0.9-dev branch, you can safely merge them if you kept the source vanilla:

git pull --ff-only

If this fails (e.g. since you modified files within the source)[^1]:

  • stash your current work git stash -u -k
  • switch to a new branch git checkout -b my-custom-setup
  • apply your stashed work git stash pop
  • commit your changes
  • switch back to 0.9-dev git branch 0.9-dev
  • do the pull again git pull --ff-only
  • install latest version cabal install

The original problem is that seemingly your version doesn't send the legato parameter to superdirt, so your notes are overlapping where they shouldn't.

In my setup, if I combine:

  1. tidal master branch (typing "git branch" in terminal)
  2. superdirt master branch (typing "git branch" in terminal)

Then if I call in tidal:

d1 $ sound "gabor*8" |=| note "3 4 14"

I get all short, non-overlapping notes. The same with the 0.9-dev versions.

I am rally unsure where this issue comes from.
