  1. Thank you for your reply Janusz ;-)
  2. I am often finding my graphs too crowded (i.e long or dense segments) and so have to to manually 'stretch' them out in the 'Workspace' via the mousing of window size to available maximum...is there a way to reflect that in the PDF (in either method of saving) or re-format the 'save as PDF' for larger formats? I can't seem to either access or force larger 'paper size' or layout (landscape) options to increase overall size of plot? Also, perhaps in a future update/version...it would be nice to have separate/standalone window(s) for plots for 'two display' systems?? I have found the plotting so extremely useful for judging various systems that a full, separate display space just for multiple plots would be very useful and much appreciated here :) Thanks in advance
  3. Requiem for Nigel

    Oh no, I am very sad to learn this :( I had only recently written him to thank him and his coauthor for their wonderful book and website of resources (it was his book 'Parametric Composition' which introduced me to Opusmodus). Thank you Stephane for the requiem and notice of Nigel's passing.
  4. I opted for a 'physical copy', so will have to wait until Dec. 21st...just in time for a Christmas gift to myself ;-)
  5. No, I missed that, thank you for pointing it out...will check it out in morning. That's also an interesting feature concerning Reaper, didn't know it could do that so will have to look at that also..thanks ole :)
  6. Thanks Stephane ;-) Unfortunately, the version of Logic X for my system, 10.9.5, has proven to be unstable for my uses so I continue to use Logic Pro 9.1.8 :( I'll keep that in mind though for that day when I HAVE TO upgrade :)
  7. Thanks for the replies all ;-)! First, it looks like the term I was searching for (via Elliot Carter) is 'Multitemporal'. -Stephane, thanks for video...will be useful for related explorations, but downside to this approach are most hosts I am using treat 'instruments' (i.e. Logic armed/selected tracks) as single core resources so the available cpu quickly dwindles in multi-channel live VI set-ups. In his example, the Vienna host may have ability to circumvent those issues since it is a server/plug-in network...though on a single computer not sure if there is that advantage. In reference to individual instrument assignments to cores...I do know Logic does NOT use more than single cores when bussing in via live/armed instrument tracks, and Numerology is currently ONLY single core for plug-ins. -andre, thanks for links...the polytempo information seems solely for performance/conducting scenarios with separate computers and players yes? -Janusz said 'I don't think the midi can't deal with multi tempo events - separate tempo events for each instrument." Janusz, Five12's 'Numerology Pro 4' does record/save MIDI generated by multiple, independently clocked 'stacks' as I alluded to earlier...by having a modular 'stack' architecture where each stack records a separate out, though all these individually clocked stacks can be bussed together and combined into one recorded file so in that circumstance it does appear possible at the technical level? Maybe it's the real time nature of Numerology Pro that makes that possible (there is no 'offline' bounce/process to saving MIDI in Numerology, it is all recorded live)? The other option I had previously explored was simple multiplication of MIDI data in Logic...unfortunately the rounding errors with Logic transforms math didn't seem to achieve same result if I remember right because of 'rounding...maybe I needed to use a different base). It appears my 'discreet' way of simply doing separate bouncing of audio stems remains most direct, otherwise if I need to hear the combination in realtime I will continue to use the Numerology approach and in near future set up a 'Live Coding' situation like example to find out it's strengths and weaknesses. Thanks everyone, and please let me know if you think of any other ideas or supplemental references relating to this core idea :)
  8. One of my approaches to creating, for example, 'percussive textures'...is to combine different/simultaneous bpms. One way...rendering separate audio files at bpm's say at 53 bpm, 59 bpm, 61 bpm, 67 bpm, 71 bpm...then mixing those individual audio stems together. Or another approach, with a sequencer environment like 'Numerology Pro'...creating individual 'sequencer stacks', each having their own separate sequencer clock set to different bpm, to create realtime MIDI/audio version of example above (or other prime number combinations like 'Prime Pillars' and prime spirals). Note, this is different from basic polyrhythms, which are still within the fractional metrics of regular divisive system (probably Elliot Carter had some method/terms closer to what I described above?) Given my current relative inexperience in the Opumodus language...could the more experienced among you perhaps suggest any approach/techniques to consider in order to generate the same final result of having different bpms for different individual voices playing SIMULTANEOUSLY in final output? Thanks in advance
  9. Going to, looks good...thanks for the notice ;-)
  10. tutorial guide

    I would note that 'Tutorials' are part of the very topmost forum tabs now, and are the same material as the references built into Opusmodus named 'Stages'. I myself appreciate having these materials duplicated here as I often like to read/study Opusmodus materials on my iPad when away from main computer :)

  13. Just to update, all above key command issues now resolved and all Opusmodus key commands working as expected. I have been building upon/upgrading from same basic OS installation since 2009 (from 10.5? up to current 10.9.5)...so a little house cleaning for unused background utilities stopped crashes from 'command-escape'...plus making the mental switch to not using the top 'main' keyboard numeric keys (upper keyboard 'function row' version of number keys) and instead using the separate 'number pad' numeric keys), which is why 'Command-1~9' were not triggering expected 'Audition' variations and instead doing TotalSpaces2 screen set switches. Not sure if that distinction between numeric key type is necessary for doc's, it just hasn't come up before for me in recent years (that I can remember anyway) ;-) So all is right in the world, sure beats 'mousing' up to the menus all the time, especially now that I am knee deep in various experiments and learning with Opusmodus :) Thank you for your patience, hopefully this will help another 'newbie' sometime in the future? Or...feel free to delete this whole post and save me the general embarrassment of not starting with the basics in solving this to begin with ;-)
  14. 'Stages 13' Typo?

    I wouldn't want to (again) presume an actual app bug at this point in my learning cycle, but I have come across a number of small typos and incorrect sentence structures in the 'Assistant materials. I will cut/paste those into a master document going forward, and when I get enough to justify...will send along via'Request Support' in a single document ;-) Thank you for the info, patience, and replies...it's been a challenging but incredibly rewarding first week with Opusmodus, and the conversations and sharing in this forum (along with YouTube/blog links) have played no small part in my learning what it is I need to learn! Thank you all for your spirit of community and knowledge :)
