    Snippet with key signatures

    OK understood, thanks.

    Snippet with key signatures

    Mmm so this relates back to my earlier question about libraries and storing ideas and multiple def-scores in a single document. To store an "idea" which can be viewed with a key signature in notation I have to save it as a def-score, but each composer document (.opmo) can effectively only have one idea in it, because each .opmo file uses only one def-score, as previously discussed. (I know it can have the code of an infinite number of def-scores, however only the last def-score will 'Evaluate and Audition and Notation" i.e it's not possible to highlight a def-score in a composer document as discovered in my last post) I'm confused to be honest..the whole structural thinking in Opusmodus is confusing me!
  3. Is it possible to have a key signature with a snippet? Thanks

    Multiple def-scores?

    Thank you.

    Multiple def-scores?

    So I can have multiple def-scores in a file, but only one of them will be acted upon by "Evaluate and Audition and Notation"..always the last one?

    Multiple def-scores?

    If I use Menu> Evaluate and Audition and Notation on your code..it will always act on the second score, score2. How do I do that to the first score in your example? Thanks

    Multiple def-scores?

    Ah OK in that case I need help because when I evaluate a Composer document with multiple def-score's in it, it will always evaluate the last one in the document. If I have a def-score higher up, I cannot evaluate that one. To evaluate a def-score... it does not involve highlighting the parentheses so how does OM decide which one to evaluate? Thanks.

    Multiple def-scores?

    I think I am correct in saying there can be only one def-score per Composer document? Is that correct? Thanks

    The learning curve..thoughts

    It's quite a feeling this Opusmodus thing. Stephen I have a website so maybe I'll do a 'post' there.

    def-score time signatures

    Perfect, thanks
  11. For me, this is a much easier journey than Max/MSP or ACToolbox or Kyma or PWGL or ...in fact any program for composition where there is a bunch of boxes, wires and annoying graphics! The idea of boxes and graphics..the visual paradigm, is it is meant to make it easier somehow.. but I now realise the reverse is true. If you are just dealing with text and traditional music notation as in OM, it's really very straight forward. There is a learning 'bump' initially but then it really starts to make sense. I got so annoyed at Max going from 4 to 5 to 6 to 7 and the ridiculous changes in the GUI that meant I had to relearn the program every time. It was all about them. I feel Opusmodus is all about me. And that's quite a unique experience. And actually the real effort visually in Opusmodus has been put in to functionality, the IDE, which to be honest is totally unique. Thanks. Onward and upward. (with a few backwards I'm sure)
  12. I have a snippet with multiple changing time signatures. When I make a def-score, if I only have that single snippet to play, is there a way to tell OM to "use the time signatures in the snippet" as opposed to typing them all in manually? Thanks.

    Using Nigel's Book

    I just wanted to say that as a newcomer to parametric composition and Opusmodus, Nigel's book has been so helpful. I have it as a pdf in the Utilities section of Opusmodus and work through a chapter a day and copy and paste his code directly into the Composer. I know Nigel wrote the tutorials, but his book sets a wider context which I have found very helpful in this beginning stage. Recommended!
  14. I'm sure it's staring me in the face but I cannot find any info on the Live Coding Instrument apart from the videos Stephane made. Thanks

    Library of snippets?

    Got it thanks
