Thank you for interest in trying out Warp!
Warp should work on most any computer. First install python3 and git if you do not already have them. On a Mac, you can install these through homebrew from the Terminal:
brew install python3 brew install git
Checkout The Source Code
Clone the project into any directory you like, you can technically run from source, but most importantly it will be useful to be able to view the API examples:
cd wherever git clone https://email@example.com/laserllama/warpseq.git
pip3 install warpseq --upgrade
Creating a Virtual MIDI Bus
If you want to use Warp with software synthesizers, you will need to create a Virtual Bus in your operating system if you do not already have one. Ableton has already written some great documentation on creating one:
You can skip step 5 in the above document if you are not using Ableton. Further, if you want to just talk to hardware MIDI instruments (and not soft synths), and don't need to route MIDI through your DAW, you can also choose to not set up a virtual bus.
We are ready to go. At this point of the Warp beta, only the Python API is available. The UI is coming soon in the Fall of 2020. To try out Warpseq from the API, see Intro
