  1. Dear friends, I managed to make my USB controller Keystation 32 to work in Opusmodus. It´s working. I press the keys and the blue notes are appearing in the score. I think that the hardware setup is properly set up. The problem is how to use this Midi Entry. The notes are appering but, in order to maintain the notes written I have to disable midi entry. When I enable it back, the new notes inputed erase the old ones. I use this small M-AUDIO keystation 32 keyboard in my desk just to input notes in notation programs. This dont have a sustain pedal attached in this tiny keyboard and no pitch wheel as well. There is some workaround or some keystroke in the computer keyboard to change the input behaviour, to act like the sustain pedal or pitchwheel command ? Actually I can program some way of sending this midi messages using another software but it would better to have it in a keystroke inside opusmodus. Thanks. Looks promising ! Best, Julio
  2. Thank you, Lasse ! There is a tragedy here in Brasil, but we are protected and trying to preserve mental sanity. Stay safe ! All the best ! Best !
  3. Dear Janusz and Stephane, I'm very happy you like it ! Opusmodus is a game changer. I love it ! Thank you, guys ! You are doing something amazing !! All the best ! Julio
  4. Dear Avner, It´s a perfect solution !! Thank you ! Best ! Julio
  5. WHY I USE OPUSMODUS SOFTWARE IN MY MUSICAL COMPOSITION PROCESS In this video I will describe some of the techniques I used in my compositional process and why I decided to use OPUSMODUS Software for compose music ! Also my experience with Pure Data and Nodal Software before moving to Opusmodus.
  6. I just realized that would be great to have snippet audition and notation (Command+1) with the notation opening in separate window, like we have Evaluate and Audition and Notation - Window and in PS. Maybe not very difficult to implement, but great to have, to show to sutudents the gradual process of the compositional process, etc. Best, Julio
  7. Dear Tom, Looks great ! Sometimes we find excellent stuff just by accident. I love when this happens ! Actually, as I said before, the negative harmony is sligthly different from just the inversion of the pitch. In your inversion, the pitch axis is the first note a4, so all the inversion operation is based in that first note. In the negative harmony, the axis lies between two notes and have some tonal orientation, i.e., it´s a kind of mapping that changes according to each tonality. For example, the mapping corresponding to the C center would be like: So, the "negative version" of your melody below: a4 g4 fs4 a4 d5 a4 fs5 d5 a5 fs5 e5 d5 would be, according to the graph above: Bb C Db Bb F Bb Db F Bb Db Eb F. Please, check the first video of the post, it´s very pedagogical. Probably Stephane will have a solution. The keyword is MAPPING. Maybe pattern substitution, pattern match, but a function where the octaves are relatives. All the best ! Julio
  8. Dear All, I´m creating some permutations and I´d like to assign a text under each note to make clear the use of certain intervals. substitute-map '(T 2M 3M 4J 5J 6M 7M) '(c3 d3 e3 f3 g3 a3 b3) '(c3 d3 e3 f3 g3 c3 c3 c3 g3 c3 c3 d3)) But in the evaluation, I get this: (t 2m 3m 4j 5j t t t 5j t t 2m) With lowercase letters, I get 2m , 3m and 5J instead of 2M, 3M and 5J (uppercase names of intervals). Since I want it for pedagogical reasons, can it be generated with the corresponding UPPERCASE letters ? Thanks in advance. All the best, Julio
  9. Thank you ! I went throughout docs, but it´s not clear enough to me. I understand that using the function "add-text-attributes" I can specify a new OMN expression attached to the notation. This is clear. But, please, I need more explanation on how to use it as a keyswitch, and how are the settings to make this text attribute trigger the keyswitches of my VLS library, (or any other). Please, can you provide some example ? Do I have also change/edit the Def-Sound_sets inside lisp files inside Def-Libraries (maybe the :omn section of these files, providing the new articulation information) ? Thanks in advance. Best, Julio
  10. Dear Friends, In a previous post (link below) there is a great description on how to configure old vsl gig versions. There is a place where you can configure the relation between the OMN articulation command with the correspondent keyswitch. QUESTIONS: 1) Let´s say I invent a new articulation in a custom sample library, for example "nail-scrape" for indicating the violin player to scrape the string with his/her nail. In this case, I need this OMN expression to: a) apear in the score notation and b) change the corresponding keyswitch. 2) In the case of the OMN expression "long", I configured it to change to the crescendo/diminuendo long samples in VSL, but this does not appear in the notation. This is great, because I don´t need it to be specified in the notation, since the long note values are enough, I just need the keyswitch. So there is the two scenarios: 1) CASE 1: OMN change keyswitch AND appear on the score 1) CASE 1: OMN change keyswitch AND DO NOT appear on the score The articulation expression syntax is a kind of yellow/brown word in the OMN code. Only articulation related words appear as an assignable articulation for this kind of use. FINALLY, THE GREAT QUESTION: How can I create my CUSTOM articulation OMN expression, like the "nail-scrape" example, so that this articulation can be customized also as appearing or not appearing in the score ? This can be really useful for expanded techniques in special scores with special sample libraries or even with scores based on customized samples, or new instruments. All the best !

  11. Thanks, Stephane ! It works great with combination, instead of combination 2. Best ! Julio
  12. Dear Friends, I´m interested in the 4-note combinations of the diatonic scale without repeating elements. (combination2 4 '(c3 d3 e3 f3 g3 a3 b3)) The filter-repeat and the remove-duplicates are not giving the right result. PARTIAL RESULT,,, combination2, size: 4 ((b3 b3 b3 b3) (a3 b3 b3 b3) (g3 b3 b3 b3) (f3 b3 b3 b3) (e3 b3 b3 b3) (d3 b3 b3 b3) (c3 b3 b3 b3) (b3 a3 b3 b3) (a3 a3 b3 b3) (g3 a3 b3 b3) (f3 a3 b3 b3) (e3 a3 b3 b3) (d3 a3 b3 b3) (c3 a3 b3 b3) (b3 g3 b3 b3) (a3 g3 b3 b3) (g3 g3 b3 b3) (f3 g3 b3 b3) (e3 g3 b3 b3) (d3 g3 b3 b3) (c3 g3 b3 b3) (b3 f3 b3 b3) (a3 f3 b3 b3) (g3 f3 b3 b3) (f3 f3 b3 b3) (e3 f3 b3 b3) (d3 f3 b3 b3) (c3 f3 b3 b3) (b3 e3 b3 b3) (a3 e3 b3 b3) (g3 e3 b3 b3) (f3 e3 b3 b3) (e3 e3 b3 b3) (d3 e3 b3 b3) (c3 e3 b3 b3) (b3 d3 b3 b3) (a3 d3 b3 b3) (g3 d3 b3 b3) (f3 d3 b3 b3) (e3 d3 b3 b3) (d3 d3 b3 b3) (c3 d3 b3 b3) (b3 c3 b3 b3) (a3 c3 b3 b3) (g3 c3 b3 b3) (f3 c3 b3 b3) (e3 c3 b3 b3) (d3 c3 b3 b3) (c3 c3 b3 b3) (b3 b3 a3 b3) (a3 b3 a3 b3) (g3 b3 a3 b3) (f3 b3 a3 b3) (e3 b3 a3 b3) (d3 b3 a3 b3) (c3 b3 a3 b3) (b3 a3 a3 b3) (a3 a3 a3 b3) (g3 a3 a3 b3) (f3 a3 a3 b3) (e3 a3 a3 b3) (d3 a3 a3 b3) (c3 a3 a3 b3) (b3 g3 a3 b3) (a3 g3 a3 b3) (g3 g3 a3 b3) (f3 g3 a3 b3) (e3 g3 a3 b3) (d3 g3 a3 b3) (c3 g3 a3 b3) (b3 f3 a3 b3) (a3 f3 a3 b3) I want to filter OUT the sets like ((b3 b3 b3 b3) (a3 b3 b3 b3) (g3 b3 b3 b3) (f3 b3 b3 b3) (e3 b3 b3 b3) (d3 b3 b3 b3) With one or more repeating notes. Best, Julio
  13. Thanks for editing the file, Janusz ! Here is some Giant Steps in 12 keys ! Best ! Julio
  14. Thank you, Ole ! Yes, the function changed. Here is some discussion about it. Best, Julio
  15. Here are some ideas using a jazz standard progression: Best, Julio
  16. One of the most interesting features of Opusmodus is the Unfold function. Within this function you can define many ways to vary your starting material. Of course you will have to learn what each function can do, like pitch transpose, length, etc. But once you figure it out there are many possibilities. The DEF-UNFOLD-SET and UNFOLD function opens up a whole new set of possibilities for the composer using OPUSMODUS. It can prove a very powerful tool in defining methods (functions) from the outset, for a specific work or as a global index of your most used functions. To be able to store methods, processes and solutions and call them at anytime becomes a valuable resource for a composers workflow. This function is a companion to the DEF-UNFOLD-SET function.
  17. Try searching the tutorial Stages in the utilities pane. Best !
  18. Hello, Please, take a look on this: Best ! Julio
