Extempore hacking

First, set Extempore up on your machine using the quickstart instructions.

Then, depending on which path you’d like to go down first, continue to either the sharedsystem (synthesis & sampling) guide or the pattern language guide.

Demo time & open feedback

At the end of the workshop, there will be a chance to share with the group both the things you’ve made today and any thoughts on how we can do things (Extempore-wise) better, friendlier, open-er and more accessible. Improving the onboarding experience for Extempore is one of my big goals this year, so all attendees get a chance to contribute to that broader mission.
