1. ## Opusmodus on a Windows Machine (using VMWare)

I tried it today, with my 5 year-old PC, windows 7 64 bit, 4GB Ram with Intel Dual Core (before the I series). In this modest setup, I could run Sonar 8.5 with rewire with Finale 25 (Windows) together with Opusmodus in VMware. You can share a folder to export your XML to immediately open in the DAW sequencer with rewire Finale. Great Stuff ! Opusmodus runs flawlessly ! Very happy with this great software ! Thank you guys ! Best, Julio added 1 minute later Exacty the steps of this video tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RQ21XG8Ts4
2. ## Argument Question (simple problem)

Thanks, André !! All the Best ! Julio
3. ## Argument Question (simple problem)

Dear Torsten, Thanks for your thoughtful answer. I'm going to try it. Best Julio
4. ## Argument Question (simple problem)

Dear friends, I'm still learning. This is a simple thing. How can I put inside a function the name of a variable, like the example below. I want to do this: (gen-binary-row 12 '(0 2 5 7 8 11)) >> (1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1) But in this way: (setf binrow '(0 2 5 7 8 11)) (gen-binary-row 12 '(binrow)) What am I missing ? Thanks for help. Best, Julio
5. ## Help with combining lists

Dear André, I´m going to check your solution soon. Thanks, friends ! Very inspiring ! Best, Julio
6. ## Help with combining lists

Thanks a lot, Janusz. This swallow function is already avaiable in Opusmodus? Do I have to update ? Best, Julio
7. ## Help with combining lists

Dear Janusz, This is the closest I get. I suppose it isn't related to Time-point. I'll try to explain. 1) There is a general list of pitches from a certain source (a row, for example) 2) From this list, we use the rhythm list as a skip list of pitches, picking the notes from a sequence. 3) The sequence of note picks is related to the lenght of note divided by the small quantized value, for example, the 16th note. 4) So, the lenght sequence (1/2 1/16 7/16 1/8 3/8 3/16 5/16 1/4 1/4 5/16 3/16)) Will result in a pick skip note sequence like (8, 1, 7, 2, 6, 3, 5, 4, 4, 5, 3) 5) The pick-skip note acts like 8 - means pick the first and skip 7 from the first list of pitches 1 - means pick the first and skip 0 from the first list of pitches 7 - means pick the first and skip 6 from the first list of pitches and so on... This will result in a sublist of first list of pitches, based on the skipped notes, taken every nth notes. according to the sequence. 5) The missed step is that I want to chordize this sublist to an desired HARMONIC partition, like for example 2 trichords, 1 dyad, 3 single notes and a tetrachord, using something like this: (chordize (gen-divide '(3 3 2 1 1 1 4) 'pitches sublist)) Here is the closer I get. Best, Julio (setf lengths '(1/2 1/16 7/16 1/8 3/8 3/16 5/16 1/4 1/4 5/16 3/16)) (setf pitches '(g5 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4 bb4 f4 eb4 c5 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 e4 b4 a4 fs4 b4 e4 d4 cs5 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4 bb4 f4 eb4 c5 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4)) (def-score time ( :key-signature 'chromatic :time-signature time-sig :tempo 112 :layout (clarinet-layout 'clarinet) ) (clarinet :length lengths :pitch (loop for i in (append (list 0) (cumulative-sums (loop for k in lengths collect (/ k 1/16)))) collect (nth i pitches)) :channel 1 :sound 'gm :program 'piano ))
8. ## Help with combining lists

Hello, All I'm trying to work out André's solution examples to make partitions out of tone rows or infinity series (setf lengths '(1/2 1/16 7/16 1/8 3/8 3/16 5/16 1/4 1/4 5/16 3/16)) (setf pitches '(g4 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4 bb4 f4 eb4 c5 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 e4 b4 a4 fs4 b4 e4 d4 cs5 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4 bb4 f4 eb4 c5 g4 gs4 fs4 a4 gs4 g4 f4 bb4 fs4 a4 g4 gs4 a4 fs4 e4 b4 f4 bb4 gs4 g4)) ;;; get the pitches (setf pitsublist (loop for i in (append (list 0) (cumulative-sums (loop for k in lengths collect (/ k 1/16)))) collect (nth i pitches)) ; All ok but what I need next is to take the nth order sublist generated in André's solution to chordize it in partitions ala Babbitt. chordize (gen-divide '(2 1 3) '(pitsublist) chordize-list (gen-divide '(2 1 3) '(pitsublist)))) Any hint ? Thanks a lot !

Dear Torsten, Thanks a lot. This music21 is cool, really. I´m doing the job with this, for a while, since I have to conclude my doctoral dissertation. Best, Julio http://www.mta.ca/pc-set/calculator/pc_calculate.html# http://composertools.com/Tools/PCSets/setfinder.html
11. ## Set Theory: Retrieving Pitch Class sets from collections of notes

Dear All, I´m looking for some way of retrieving musical information from sets of notes. Some problems, for example: 1) This is the first and more needed now: Given some UNORDERED amount of pitches, how retrive the prime form and/or Forte Number. 2) How to do this from an existing midi file or XML ? Is t possible to retrive the forte number of every "n" notes of the pitch collection (melody or chord)? 3) Can you circunscribe some notes for analysis in a large file ? Thanks, everyone ! Best, Julio

Very Cool !!! And realistic. Congrats !
13. ## How to control the beaming of notation ?

Yeah, Stephane ! Thanks ! And you changed lenght-div for some-lenght. Great. I did this today. By the way, I generated 400 files with this method today ! All the sets mod 12. Like 100 pages, or more. Thanks !

Hey, Janusz ! It worked ! Thanks for your patience ! This will be an immense time saver to me. Best ! Julio
15. ## How to control the beaming of notation ?

Hello, Friends ! I'm using the code below to generate combinations of rhythm in 12/8 time signature. I'd like to have my XML with correct beaming of the notes, related to the most common interpretation of a 12/8 time signature, i. e., beaming every 3 8th notes. Instead, I'm getting it more beamed like a 6/4 time signature: Is there some form of force the right beaming? All the best ! Please help this doctorate student !

I just read now the first line of your message. Thanks, Stephane ! Best, Julio
18. ## How to span different time signatures ?

Thanks a lot, Stephane ! This is great ! And thank you for showing me more functions. However, there some issues: how to control to get a 12/8 instead of a 6/4? Or: how to get always a time signature with x/8 ? Or always with a X/4, or mix them ? In the example you provide, a 12 generates a 6/4 instead of a 12/8. I changed the code a little: (setf some-pitches (integer-to-pitch (gen-integer-step 7 480 '(0)))) ;>>> here, because I want to stay in the same note g4 (setf lengths (span some-pitches '(q q e q q q e))) ;>>> here, because I want this specific rhythm, not random sample (setf some-division '(21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3)) ;here, there's that problem of 6/4 versus 12/8 and one more problem occurred because OM stop changing the timesignature after the number 14 (xml attached) I don't know why. (setf length-div (gen-divide some-division some-lengths)) (setf time-sig (get-time-signature length-div)) (def-score time ( :key-signature 'chromatic :time-signature time-sig :tempo 112 :layout (clarinet-layout 'clarinet) ) (clarinet :length lengths :pitch some-pitches :channel 1 :sound 'gm :program 'clarinet )) Best !!

19. ## How to span different time signatures ?

This is even more simple: (setf pitches '((g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 g4 HERE COMES THE Pitch List :type :pitch))) (setf lengths (span pitches '(e -e -e -e HERE COMES THE Rhythm pattern list - same size or less than the pitches))) (def-score Stage-1 (:key-signature 'chromatic :time-signature '(4 4) '(1 8) >>>>>>>> Here is the problem: How to span the content through different Time Signatures using the same rhythm list and pitches ? :tempo 80 :layout (treble-layout 'piano-rh)) (piano-rh :length lengths :pitch pitches :channel 1 :sound 'gm :program 'clarinet) )
20. ## How to span different time signatures ?

Hello, friends ! I'm trying to make some rhythm patterns and I'd like to use the same pattern changing just the time signature order/or sequence. For example, assuming an 8th note as the number 1. 2 2 1 2 2 2 1 (african bembé rhythm) as a pattern. This pattern could match in a 12/8 time signature or also in a 3/4 time signature. This is ok, no problem. But what if I like to span it as a 10/8 + 2/8 or 9/8 + 3/8 or 7/8 + 5/8 or in a sequence like 3/8 + 2/8 + 4/8 + 3/8 always repeating the time signature sequences until have al the notes spanned ? Thanks for help ! Best ! Julio This works for me with ONE time signature only. I need the same stuff with a SEQUENCE of time signatures. (setf padrao '((0 1 2 3))) (setf pitches '((g4 g4 g4 g4 HERE COME THE PITCH LIST, padrao :type :pitch))) (setf lengths (span pitches '(e e -e e HERE COMES THE Rhythm pattern list - same size or less than the pitches))) (setf text (span pitches padrao)) (def-score Stage-1 (:key-signature 'chromatic :time-signature '(4 4) :tempo 80 :layout (treble-layout 'piano-rh)) (piano-rh :length lengths :pitch pitches ;text text :channel 1 :sound 'gm :program 'clarinet) )

22. ## El Capitan Compatibility

I have Opusmodus running on El Capitan. The latest version is only compatible with Sierra ? Do I must have to upgrade my OSX to get upgrades ? Best. Julio
23. ## Parsimounious Voice Leading between collections of notes

Thanks ! I'll Try !
24. ## Parsimounious Voice Leading between collections of notes

Dear Friends, Is there some function that deals with finding the shortest path between, for example, a trichord "a" to a trichord "b" ? In general, how to find the shortest path from a collection of notes (i.e. a chord) "a" to a collection of notes "b" (both in the same cardinality) ? Thanks in advance ! Best ! Julio
