  1. @janusz: if you try the function a few times (without seed) , you will see (by cmd1), that sometimes the last TIE isn't there. i think QUANTIZE is doing this little bug... (but perhaps only a xml-display-thing?)

    maxmsp and lisp?

    the only problem seems to be, that it only works with CCL 1.12 on mojave... but this is not the official actual version in apple's appstore. so it don't work with 1.11.... does anyone know how to fix this problem?
  4. dear all does anyone have experience with an implementation of LISP in maxmsp? i'm looking for: "Max handling real time input, output, timing and control, letting Lisp handle variable handling and of course the processing of large amounts of data" Cycling '74 CYCLING74.COM Tools for sound, graphics, and interactivity does anyone tested this? thealexgraham/lisper GITHUB.COM Lisper is an easy to use interface between Max/MSP and Common Lisp - thealexgraham/lisper thanx for a hint andré

  9. you should also share your ideas/thoughts/concepts!!??
  10. hi julio it's too complicated to share the code...the FUNCTION is made for a specific idea of the work (not common), so it's made for MY need... here is a short sketch of the work... (part of it) a) generating a pitch-sequence => by using a 12-tone-seq + its expansion by a sorting-algorithm (with GEN-SORT) => an INTERVAL-order mutates to a SCALE (see the list-plot) b) pitches are projected on a sequence of symmetrical expanding/compressing FIELDS (with CHORD-CONTR...) => you see how the pitch-seq is contracted/exapnded in "space" - result is a kind of interference of this processes => at the end you see (in list-plot) that the interference is going more and more to ONE LEVEL - to a SCALE - so its a kind of inside/out. the inherent structure, the inherent process/order is more and more recognizable during the process (start with compr/exp. 12-tone-row to the simple SCALE) the project is a bit larger. this sequence (which rhythm is based on a binary-event-filter (data of a jpeg of an artist)) is only the structural background (some ideas developed by LACHENMANN) - on this NET (the score you see) there will be other GESTALTS/MOTIFS etc... because my needs are such specific to my and my idea - most of the functions i had to code for myself, or modify/enlarge the OPMO functions, great that this is possible on this platform. sorry a bit complicated and i can't not describe it properly with a few words

  16. with BAR and BEAT? that's great JANUSZ, you are always two steps ahead or "MILES AHEAD" (trumpeter's joke :-)) but WHEN will be the RELEASE?
  17. thanx for the span-ignore-pause-HINT! ...but it makes no sense to me - when you are working with EVENTS (by numbering it) - to ignore some of them the idea behind this concept is, that you could work with a (finished) score by changing some parameters or enlarge rests - like a kind of "post-production". in this way it's not necessary to go deep inside you generating-algorithms, you can only change things a little bit like in a notation-software (i think it's on that level). some months ago i had the idea to do such changes (post...) by positions with BARS/BEATS - but at the moment i think it's much better to signify the EVENTS and work directly on them. less errors and easy to code such post...-functions.
  18. to use the function which works on event-numbers, first you have to number it (the score), so that you could work with this afterwards... ;;; ADD numbers to text attributes (can do that in your setup), then ADD number to events ;;; have a look to the example. after that, easy to use REPLACE-ON-EVENT-NUMBER etc...

  20. it's not a common solution, only a specific for my project... 1) it should also work with chords - because it's made for EVENTS it's always one chord = one event 2) of course, you have to decide/check if you like to merge rests or not => because i'm filtering the texture by a binary-seq (binaries from a jpeg, like a sieve) it's not the idea to merge the rests, but you could do that in a seperate step. but in my case every note/event (before filtering) is numbered, so with/when BINARY-FILTER/SIEVE you will keep the numbering concise.
  21. what you could do with it? a precise "projection on a curve" of a generated OMN (in this example: a 12-tone-row, which is been permuted (by a SORTING-algorithm) from start to end, till it's a symmetrical scale)

  23. i think it's good and important to see that opusmodus is not a notation software (like sibelius/finale/dorico...). the potential is rightly in another area and i believe that it is important to keep the basic idea of opusmodus in focus (it's important to have restrictions/limitations) - and i think the development team is very aware of that . you can not have everything, but what is possible should be very very smart in its kind. the longer i work with opusmodus, the more i realize, for what i can use it ...and when I have to switch to another platform. and because it is so open, it is then possible for me to find solutions for my specific needs, by being able to program myself and not simply having to do what the existing tools / functions allow. okay i admit i'm a big fan of opusmodus, although i do not even compose with it but can try/simulate basic ideas of my work - doing abstract/new things and see what happens - like working in an LAB
