cabal install --only-dependencies
cabal run arpeggigon
To install the arpeggigon globally, one can call:
cabal install
This will create an executable located in
`<path_to_repo>/.cabal-sandbox/bin/` from where it is possible to create a
symbolic link to an object in the `PATH`.
ln -s <path_to_repo>/.cabal-sandbox/bin/arpeggigon <somewhere_in_PATH>/arpeggigon
**WARNING:** to run, the Arpeggigon needs a running Jack server. If it cannot
