  1. I was wondering what was the preferred method to store snippets? I come across quick ideas I want to quickly store away for future.


    There seems to be two choices..make a .opmo file or 'save the last file as .xml' under the File menu. Are there any others? I guess an xml file is good for seeing the notation rapidly but effectively renders the snippet dead as it loses the reference to the code and an .opmo file keeps the code... though this needs to be evaluated to see the notation quickly. 


  2. I have converted many of my scores made in Notion to music xml in order to display them in the Assistant..which is very nice indeed.


    I'm wondering if I can convert those xml scores to an Opusmodus score direct or do I have to re-import them as midi? I see I can go the other way..xml to Notion, but cannot find how to go this way or if it's possible.



  3. An unusual request:

    I am using Opusmodus for my next project 'The Last', a dance piece, the subject of which is... death.

    Can anyone point me to some functions that might, with a little creative license, play with the idea of death in terms of, for example, entropy or decay? Or truncation. 

    I'm throwing the ball in the air here so all ideas are welcome!





  4. So I didn't really know what an IDE was..it's an Integrated Development Environment..is that right?

    Well anyhow I just wanted to share my enthusiasm for Opusmodus' idea of an integrated workspace...being able to have pdf books available full screen with a shortcut is amazing...and pictures and audio etc. I am a big fan of Wooden Books for instance and bam..there they are in my composing space for reference. 

    I'm kind of thinking this is how all "composing" software should be..but mostly now it seems to me to be about a graphical interface that is irrelevant alongside a multitrack recorder paradigm.


    Anyhow happy to be on this journey (())


  5. Hi Andre


    Thanks for this considered answer..it helps.

    Of course you are right and yet I just wish code was more human friendly and less computer friendly!  High level is not high enough for me 🙂

    There seems to be a gap between a DAW, which is based on the paradigm of a multitrack recorder, and Opusmodus, common music, open music, pwgl, patchwork etc that are based on the language of the computer.

    And I was hoping Opusmodus might fill that gap and it almost does...but (((((((  ))))))))) drives me nuts! But that's coding.

    I too love the 'direct connection to the score'  as you say.

    I will persevere. I have had great fun with Live Coding in the past so this can't be so difficult.
