  1. Hi, Forgive me for these simple questions, but I'm curious to know what's the best way to display all the libraries I have? For example, I'm now trying to build new libraries that includes ambituses of custom-built instruments I will use, rhythmic patterns I am developing, and modes/scales I will be using. I have the following questions: 1. I'm trying to understand the difference between library, def-library, and create-library. I am particularly interested in better understanding def-library and create-library. Are the two functions very different?
  2. Very sad to hear this. He was very inspiring and supportive. I learned so much from him.
  3. Just a small question, and I am not entirely sure it'll be a big help but did you try quantizing the MIDI in a DAW first? I've had a similar problem once before and just running through a DAW and quantizing everything for some reason cleaned up the MIDI for me. I hope this helps.
  4. This is really amazing. Looking forward to experiment with this..!
  5. Dear Janusz, How about using the following four parameters: Length (according to range): wind direction (degrees): floating points, between 0 and 360.0 Dynamics: wind speed (m/s): floating points Pitch: temperature (celcius): floating points Chance of randomly modulating length (according to range of Humidity): Humidity (percentage): floating points Do you think this can be done? I've attached a screenshot of what I'm currently working with to receive weather API data. Thanks.
  6. Hello, I am working on a sound installation for two voices (using Soniccouture's Geosonics VST plugin and a vibraphone VST plugin running through a computer). The source of the data is taken live from the internet and is actually API weather data from a city in South Korea. The piece will play for 2 hours every night between early December and early March. The trouble I am having is how to transform the different fragments of weather data into data I could use within Opusmodus. Here's the type of data that I get according to each parameter (the options are either float

  8. Fantastic suggestion. I'd love to see some focus on those same matters, too. I had asked in the past here on the forum about the Infinity Series and Spectral Techniques. Thanks for bringing this up.
  9. Thank you very, very much for this. I hope to create something new with Opusmodus very soon using this approach. Really looking forward to it.
  10. Hello, I am trying to find different ways of importing partials/frames data into Opusmodus. I am currently trying to use spectral analysis to analyzes certain music/audio phenomena I haven't really seen analyzed before to adapt into my own composition process. The sounds are generally archival or things I have synthesized on the computer through software myself (in .wav format), and are usually between 1 - 5 seconds in length. Is this a good length of time to analyze the spectral data of sounds? I just wanted to understand the following information about spectral tools
  11. I haven't yet had the chance to test midi controller integration with Opusmodus+Ableton, but I'd be curious to learn more about your findings...!
  12. excellent..! thanks for this.
  13. Hello, I have been reviewing James Pritchett's The Music of John Cage lately, and was particularly surprised by the detail in which some of the techniques John Cage developed in the 1940s are described such as his "gamut" technique and "chart" technique. I am very curious to see whether you are aware of any attempts to use Opusmodus to create something somewhat similar to these techniques? In theory, the gamut technique is a collection of "sound materials" made before the composition is arranged, and that these sound materials (with varying content, and often containing most of
  14. Dear Stephane, Thank you for your fantastic feedback. I remember very well how much you stress the importance of do-timeline. I will also look very carefully at gen-divide and the other examples you mentioned. I sometimes think I need to make my own "headings" inside of Opusmodus with my own explanation for some of the techniques and how they can be applied to my idea of composition. Sometimes, those "headings" I use would change depending on the style I'm trying to compose, too. I guess maybe this is the deeper level of something powerful like Opusmodus: we have so ma
  15. Dear all, I am curious to know whether any of you have any tips or strategies for approaching 'structure' in composition using Opusmodus. I often find that one of the challenges I face while using Opusmodus is that I tend to think in terms of the general structure of the composition and its pertaining restraints. I find it very difficult to think about the microstructures within a piece, mainly I think because I don't know enough about how to approach the idea of microstructures. By this, I mean I generally approach composition within Opusmodus by generating pitches/len
  16. Scala files, I realize, are lists of tuning frequencies that can be subsequently mapped to midi. I have in the past imported lists of frequencies into programs such as Max/MSP for other projects, but I'm curious to see how this could be efficiently done in OM. It'd be nice to be able to simultaneously create library lists (that are stored in the OM directory for future use) without needing to manually go through each of the over 4,000 tunings available. I also assume that this matter would be connected somehow to any future OM functions that allow for microtonal music. As a tempora
  17. Dear all, I am curious to know if anyone has imported any/all of the currently existing scala scales into OM. Is it possible to automate the process of importing all the tunings just because dealing with both the .scl format and the number of available tunings can get tedious.
  18. Hello all, I have been using MIDI to OMN for a while, but is there a way to transform MusicXML to OMN within OMN (just because it is much easier to review and look at the notation)?
