Variable not in scope error message for some functions

Hi all,

I have installed SuperCollider and Tidal successfully on MacOS Sierra and I am able to produce sounds successfully using something like: d1 $ sound "[amencutup:1*2 amencutup:1] [amencutup:2 amencutup:6]"

However, when I try to work my way through some of the function examples on, for instance swingBy, I get the following error: :382:6: error: Variable not in scope: swingBy :: Ratio Integer -> Integer -> ParamPattern -> ParamPattern

Are there more modules I have to install to access some of these other functions? Any thoughts for troubleshooting to try? I tried to search for my error message and didn't see anything that jumped out as appropriate, sorry if I missed a post that answers my question. Thanks so much!

Sounds like a version issue - do you know what version of Tidal you have installed? Version 0.9 was released quite recently and swingBy is new.
