  1. if you like to change dynamics/velocity of specific lengths (defun replace-velocity-of-a-length (omnseq length/velocity-map) (loop for i in (single-events (flatten omnseq)) when (length-restp (car i)) collect i else append (omn-replace :velocity (cadr (assoc (car (omn :length i)) length/velocity-map)) i))) (setf omn-seq '(s c4 ffff e e s e. s q q q q q)) (replace-velocity-of-a-length omn-seq '((1/16 mp) (2/16 pp) (3/16 ppp))
  2. in my personal view: - for algorithmic composition ...you have first to be a composer/musician - because it's a lot more about music then about code (i learned a little bit to code, because i was interested in this "kind of thinking" about art and music - so, i think, if you want to work with algorithms you have to handle some code (like in music you have to handle some pitches/sound/rhythms) - when you have a look to the history of algorithmic composition you see some software like: common music, open music, pwgl, patchwork, also supercollider or MAX etc, i
  3. some LISP tutorials... http://lisp.plasticki.com/show?H9 https://curry.ateneo.net/~jpv/cs171/LispTutorial.pdf https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/LispBook/book.pdf https://www.cs.umd.edu/~nau/cmsc421/norvig-lisp-style.pdf or paper in GERMAN... https://www.amazon.de/Programmieren-COMMON-LISP-Otto-Mayer/dp/3860257102
  4. i think it's very helpful. you could code also your own FUNCTIONS - you would learn to understand how it works - and it helps to handle opusmodus. there is an enormous potential in it.... greetings andré
  5. is there an RESPELL-function which would change sharps into flats and flats into sharps for single pitch-values? enharmonic changes.... like: (enharmonic 'cs4) => db4 (enharmonic 'db4) => cs4 but there is an other solution for an EQUALP* whicht is "independent" from pitch-name (enharmonic)... but a function like ENHARMONIC or EQUALP* could be useful (for pattern-match etc)... (defun equalp* (a b) (equal (pitch-to-midi a) (pitch-to-midi b))) (equalp* 'cs4 'db4) => t there is an EQUALP in the system (but not documented), and wo
  6. i think it's only possible by :controllers with pitch-bend-messages. i have seen the example, but i have no idea how to realize it without a really concrete example - i'm an absolut beginner with MIDI-etc-things what i have to write in the :controllers-section - which "midi-number/numbers" for pitch-bend? the bending in conTimbre needs an integer between 1 and 127 => 64 is no-tuning/bend? are there any specialists around in the forum?
  7. hi all, i think a it's a beginner-question... in SIBELIUS i can write for microtonal things MIDI PITCH BEND MESSAGES to every note i want - or automatically by a plugin. in the score/above the note then it's written for example : ~B0,70 etc.... (my PLAYER (conTimbre) works from SIBELIUS via VST) - now the question: how do i send such MIDI-pitch-bend-messages from OPUSMODUS? the opmo-tuning seems to work different and don't work with conTimbre-player... https://www.contimbre.com/en/ thanx for any help andré
  8. ;; a function which fills up a sequence randomly - max-length = length sequence ;; (regardless of the number of cycles) (defun rnd-complete-seq (n &key sequence (step 1) seed (sort '<) (exclude nil) (append-excluded nil)) (let* ((testseq) (sequence (if (null exclude) sequence (filter-remove exclude sequence))) (sequence (loop repeat (length sequence) with sequence = (loop repeat n with seq = '() do (setf seq (append (rnd-unique
  9. i know.... i tried and failed. perhaps someone could help me....
  10. i like to insert many text-attrib (hundreds) into the opmo-function (ADD-TEXT-ATTRIBUTES) ... how can i format it the right way when i generate it by a function? thanx for help!! andré ;;; ordinary... by hand - works fine (add-text-attributes '(nr0 "0") '(nr1 "1") '(nr2 "2") '(nr3 "3") '(nr4 "4") '(nr5 "5")) ;;; generated by a function as a list (if there are many attributes) (setf attr-list (loop for i from 0 to 100 collect (list (compress (list 'nr i)) (write-to-string i)))) ;;; INSERT don't work because of the wrong format....
  11. ...damn, again i have not found the right function thanks, stephane!!!
  12. works, but only for one-time-repetiton... could you use it? (defun merge-lengths-of-a-pitch-rep (omn-seq) (let* ((omn-seq (single-events omn-seq)) (l)) (flatten (loop repeat (length omn-seq) for cnt = 0 then (incf cnt) when (equal (omn :pitch (nth cnt omn-seq)) (omn :pitch (nth (1+ cnt) omn-seq))) do (progn (setf l (length-note-merge (append (omn :length (nth cnt omn-seq)) (omn :length (nth (1+ cnt) omn-seq))))) (incf cnt)) and collect (omn-replace :length l (n
  13. thanks, so i have to code an algorithm to write such a library (till 1000) - or do it by hand any idea to code such a format? - i don't know how to code/write such a format with single lists (and not lists in lists) inside a function... thanx for help andré
  14. i know, but i would like to code it and not to write it by hand here is the solution: ;;; THE NUM-FUCTION for ARTICULATION (defun gen-num (n &key (start 0)) (loop for i from start to n append (list (compress (list 'num i))))) ;;; (setf pitches (loop repeat 20 collect (rnd-pick '(c4 d4 e4 f4)))) (setf articulation (gen-num (length pitches))) (make-omn :pitch pitches :articulation articulation :length '(t) :span :pitch) => (t f4 num0 e4 num1 c4 num2 d4 num3 e4 num4 f4 num5 d4 num6 d4 num7 f4 num8 f4 num9 c4 num10 d4 num1
  15. i would like to number a pitch sequence, so that every pitch has a number which is written in the score (above the pitch). how can i do that...? any idea? thanx for help a.
  16. ;;; removes pitches by its position-number, will be replaced by rests. (starts with 0) (defun omn-pitch-position-remove (positions omnseq) (length-rest-merge (loop for i in (single-events omnseq) with cnt = 0 when (and (pitchp (cadr i)) (not (equal 'nil (member cnt positions)))) append (make-omn :length (list (length-invert (car i)))) else append i when (pitchp (cadr i)) do
  17. ... a keyword/text search within the feature descriptions would be very useful.... so if i search "all-interval" i could find AIR etc....
  18. thanks for the hint but don't seems to be equal / not same idea?
  19. could be an interesting idea for OPMO? (or already existing?) greetings andré ;;; a function (a sketch - i needed it for my momentary work) which filters ;;; an OMN-sequence in a specific bar, from a specific beat, with a specific ;;; span. (in such a basic version all in quarters (bars/...))

  21. something like that? (defun length-to-binary (lengthlist n) (let ((newlist (loop for i in (omn :length lengthlist) collect (/ i n)))) (loop for x in newlist when (> x 0) append (append (list 1) (gen-repeat (1- x) '0)) else append (gen-repeat (abs x) '0)))) (length-to-binary '(-q q e) 1/16) => (0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0) (length-to-binary '(-q s s q e) 1/16) => (0 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0)
  22. a sieve/filter-function - filters specific INTERVALS and replacing the others by rests. (don't work perfect, but as a sketch....) ;;; (defun equal/or (n alist) (car (loop for i in alist when (equal i n) collect 't))) ;;; FUNCTION (defun filter-omn-by-intervals (omn-seq intervals) (setf omn-seq (loop with omn-events = (single-events omn-seq) with i = 0 while (not (null (nth i omn-events))) when (equal/or (car (pitch-to-interval (append (omn :pitch (nth i omn-events)) (o
