  1. This video nicely explains translation systems converting (mapping) characters into pitches. How can this be done in OM? Example: german BACH or ascii BACH
  2. I have looked into the respective .opmo file, maybe I am blind but I could not found chord inversion methods in the standard ‘om one. Any suggestion how I can invert a block chord for example in a counterpoint dictum using the :method parameter ?
  3. The former sessions with recorded videos and explaining comments have been very helpful to learn OM. Will there be a continuation now where v3 is out?
  4. When editing code, a useful feature of former version was to see the function spec incl. all arguments. How to get this in v3?
  5. Wow, this is really disappointing. It is again showing how poor the company behind OM communicates. It seems not necassary to have an official announcement placed at the day people can use the new version. Is it too much to ask for an update note on the official webpage?
  6. Is there a selective rollout? I did not get a note, although I own last version?
  7. @opmo True if this were a free, open-source community driven project. But Opusmodus is quite the opposite. Just to get things right. As paying customer I hoped to get somewhat more from you. Its a pitty, Opusmodus was a great product until it became useless for new Mac users, while communication of the company is so far behind what others understand and do not question.
  8. October ending w/o update with M1 compatibility, although this was promised since couple of months?
  9. Provided, This new version is only a refactoring (without extra user features) intended to cater (far too late) for new Macs, IMHO theres no rationale for extra prices. To provoce: I personally rather see a need for discounts for users willing to wait for more than a year of unfullfiled needs to use the software on modern Macs. Other software manufacturers were faster.
  10. @opmo back to question, so screenshots and video are simply enough, such that nobody of user community is joining a beta testing programme? Being a coder myself, hard to believe that switching to a whole a new environment is not exposing risk for bugs. Is Oct release for a beta (no production use) or will it be a release candidate for productive use?
  11. Hello Forum - Are there no beta testers checking before the Oct release?
  12. I do not understand why Opusmodus hosts a forum if it is not used to exchange with the community and customers in a reasonable way. Responsiveness is really very poor compared to other places, unfortunately.
  13. @opmo When do you release the new version in October ? (just for those being excited to use OM the first time for >10mins w/o crash).
  14. October is approaching. Will M1 support be ready?
  15. Any update on this? I have the feeling that nothing happens.
  16. Thx @opmo, sorry to persist: So after all, still no timeline?
  17. April 2022, @opmo: are there any news when M1 Arm chip gets finally supported?
  18. Yes, same I found, see 1 in post.
  19. Would it make sense to add a custom function for the Perlin noise random number generator to OM library ? I guess for musical context 1-dimensional suffices. Perlin noise is a kind of gradient noise invented by Ken Perlin around the end of the twentieth century and still currently heavily used in computer graphics, most notably to procedurally generate textures or heightmaps. It has some nice features yielding smooth texture. The function might extend the usual (vector-smooth x (gen-white-noise y)) approach. There seems to be some (as far as I understand 2d) open-source implementations in CL (1, 2), I cannot judge as my LISP knowledge yet is too limited.
  20. I do not understand why function length-syncopate changes pitches from omn fed into. The documentation speaks about repetition. What do I misunderstand here? Docu:
  21. @Stephane Boussuge: If I am not mistaken, you mentioned in your convention talk (First Opusmodus Convention 2021 - Day 2: Stéphane Boussuge : Motivic cell technique explorations with Opusmodus) that the code will become integrated into next OM version. Can you give a poster where it is. I searched for motivic / cell but maybe my search strategy is wrong. I am especially interested in the last section, in you demoed a piece fully made by random material and variation techniques. Thx Cliff
