Ingen is a realtime modular synthesizer and/or effects processor for

-To build, first check "./configure --help" for options, you can build this
-code in many different ways (standalone engine with seperate clients, build
-engine server only, build clients only, build monolithic clients, etc. etc).
-Then do the typical "./configure; make; make install" routine.
-*** Optimization ***
-Ingen's configure script, by default, does not clobber your CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS
-environment variables (which is the proper behaviour), though it does add a
-few flags that should be turned on in any case (as described in this file).
-If you want to submit usable bug reports (for segfaults and the like),
-build with --enable-debug. This will also enable assertions, which also
-makes bug hunting easier (see below).
-If you have GCC4, it is hightly recommended that you enable your SIMD
-instruction set, especially if you have a Pentium 4
-(ie "-march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse"). The performance gain is good for any chip
-with a SIMD instruction set (Altivec, SSE, and friends), but in the case of a P4
-the denormal avoidance is crucial for audio software. Note that -march=athlon64
-implies -msse, -msse2, -mfpmath=sse, etc.
-*** Debugging ***
-Ingen makes very heavy use of assertions to catch bugs. Assertions have a
-(minor) performance hit unless the preprocessor symbol NDEBUG is defined.
-By default the configure script will add this to the end of your flags,
-but it's worth noting. Assertions have a minor overhead everywhere, but
-will likely make bug reports much more useful. Debug symbols add quite a
-bit of bloat to all the code, and is not useful unless you plan on debugging
-the code yourself. A good compromise between performance and bug
-reporting ability (eg for using the code from SVN) is
---enable-assertions without --enable-debug-symbols.
-*** Bugs ***
-If Ingen crashes, PLEASE REPORT THE BUG. People too often assume "someone"
-"must" know about the bug and it will magically get fixed without telling
-anyone about it. It probably doesn't happen for me, and if I don't know about
-it, I'm probably not going to fix it :)
