  1. The brand-new Big-Sur Opusmodus 2.2 won't launch. Instead, I get an alert that it's "damaged", and buttons Cancel and Move to Trash. I DL'd it twice, tossed the prefs, cache, and Opusmodus folder, restarted Mac. No go. Unlike the previous version, the .dmg is named only "Opusmodus", rather than Opusmodus_Big-Sur". I'm wondering if the wrong installer was connected to the Big Sur download button. I reinstalled V2.1.26285, and it works fine. Any ideas?
  2. That's long enough this time, but in the future, do I have to ask politely to have my authorization count cleared so that I can temporarily run OM on my laptop?
  3. Is there a way to move an activation of OpusModus to another computer temporarily? I'm about to leave for a week vacation, and would like to be able to use OM on my laptop during that time. I have it activated on two other Macs now, but would like to deactivate one so that I can activate it on my laptop. I guess this isn't a problem this time, since the demo is for 30 days. I'll just use that this time. I appreciate the long demo time!
  4. Thanks for the response. I have been tripped up by nesting several times, so I'm paying closer attention to it now. I will leave this as a mystery!
  5. Then why did Jorvd get a correct output in the video without the sublists?
  6. In the video "Opusmodus Parametric Composition" by Jorvd, from 2019-12, at 11:10, he demonstrates using harmonic-path to combine a melody and chords. I entered this code to match the video, and it didn't work for me. Here's what he showed: (setf chords '(c3g3c4ds4 gs2f3c4d4 c3g3c4ds4 gs2f3c4d4 c3g3c4ds4 d3g3b3f4 c3g3c4g4 d3f3c4gs4 ds3g3c4g4 cs3g3as3f4 ds3a3c4fs4 fs3a3c4ds4 c3g3c4ds4 g2g3b3d4 gs2f3c4d4 b2d3f4 c3g3c4ds4 f3gs3c4d4 g2g3b3d4 c3ds3g3ds4 as2e3g3g4 f2f3c4gs4 g2g3b3d4 cs3g3as3f4 b2g3d4g4 c3g3c4ds4 f3gs3c4f4 g2g3b3d4 gs2ds3c4gs4 gs2ds3c4gs4 as2as3d4f4 ds3as3ds4g4 d3f3b3f4 c3g3c4e4 f3gs3c4f4 g2g3c4ds4 g2g3b3d4 c3ds3g3c4 c3ds3g3c4)) (setf instrument1 (gen-repeat (length chords) '(s g4c4 c4 g4e4 g4 d4 c4 g4f4 g4))) (setf instrument1.map1 (harmonic-path chords instrument1 :type '> :octave 'path)) It seems that instrument1 needs to have the melody nested one level in order to make the result work, like this: (setf instrument1 (gen-repeat (length chords) '((s g4c4 c4 g4e4 g4 d4 c4 g4f4 g4)))) It looks like something changes in gen-repeat, or possibly harmonic-path since December, or am I missing something? Thanks for any insights!
  7. I've been playing around with Rangarajan's "Constraint Programming with Screamer" file, and ran across what looks like a bug. The program generates this chord sequence (which I assigned to chords-1): (setf chords-1 '((h. c3e3g3 ff -q) (h. d3f3a3 ff -q) (h. g3b3d4 ff -q) (h. a3c4e4 ff -q) (h. e3g3b3 ff -q) (h. g3b3d4 ff -q) (h. a3c4e4 ff -q) (h. c3e3g3 ff -q))) If I just cmd-1 on that, it displays and plays just fine. If I evaluate this, though: (ps 'gm :treble chords-1 :time-signature '(4 4) :tempo 120) I get this mess: It plays one chord (or rather, discord). This seems ok: (get-time-signature chords-1) => ((4 4 8)) This looks ok: (disassemble-omn chords-1) => (:length ((3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4)) :pitch ((c3e3g3) (d3f3a3) (g3b3d4) (a3c4e4) (e3g3b3) (g3b3d4) (a3c4e4) (c3e3g3)) :velocity ((ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff)) :articulation ((-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-))) What's going on here? Thanks!
  8. In the Editor Commands window (Help -> Editor Commands), the description text in the bottom panel is black on a very dark gray background (dark mode). I have to select the text to read it. Also, when you open a Help panel (the floating panel you get when you click on a function in the rightmost panel) and select some text in it, then click outside that panel, the text reverts to its unselected color, but the selection highlight is almost the same color, so it becomes unreadable. I'm using V2.0.25787 on Catalina 10.15.5.
  9. So f4 is just a constant buried somewhere in the code? What about the natural sign? I can't imagine that it has a purpose, so did it just creep in there as a bug? Here is an image showing the result:
  10. Just wondering about this. Given a pitchless snippet like '(q = = = ) What determines the pitch when auditioned? It's not preferences/audition, which says c4, but it's playing f4. I'm also puzzled by why the notation produced has a natural sign in front of the first note. I'm pretty sure it didn't used to do that. I'm using V2.0.25787 on Catalina. Thanks!
  11. On May 9, I got an email from Opusmodus announcing V2.0.25750, with a bug fix. I currently have 2.025716 (on Mac Catalina). I've checked for updates in OM several times since then, but it always says that I'm up to date. Is there a problem in the update system? Thanks!
  12. I'm happy to report that yesterday's release (v 2.025716) works on Catalina. Thanks!
  13. I didn't look closely enough at the system requirements for V2, and have found that it doesn't open any windows on Catalina (10.15.3). I'm aware of the CCL compiler problem, but I thought that had been fixed. Is there an expectation that V2 will run on Catalina soon?
  14. Torsten, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification!
  15. Wow. Thanks! I didn't realize that computer had "Closed Windows" turned on.
  16. It would be great if the File / Open Recent... list was sub-divided into .opmows files and everything else. It would also be very convenient if, when Opusmodus starts, it re-opened any .opmows files that were open when it last quit, but lacking that, having a separate section for them in Open Recent... would provide quick access to what I've been working on. As-is, any .opmows file tends to fall off the list when I open enough other files.
  17. That's good to know, and is simpler than my current workaround (add a 0 to the front of the list, then drop the leading c4 from the result). Do you consider the inconsistency of the integer-to-pitch results a bug?
  18. I just discovered that (from the doc for integer-to-pitch) (integer-to-pitch '((-2 -1) 0 (1 2))) => (bb3b3 c4 cs4d4) but (integer-to-pitch '((-2 -1) (0 2) (1 2))) => ((bb3 b3) (c4 d4) (cs4 d4)) Unless at least one element is not a sublist, it fails to make chords. This seems inconsistent, and probably a bug. This is in Opusmodus Version 1.3.24962
  19. This is much nicer now! Is it being too picky of me to ask that the vertical bar at the beginning be returned too?
  20. I've attached two screenshots showing how Figure 10 in "1st Element - Length.rtfd" looks, compared to the example copied to the left pane and evaluated using Tools / Snippet / OMN Notation. I would much prefer the appearance of the tutorial example, without the horizontal line, to what I get when I render it. Is there a problem with my setup, a bug, or has an aesthetic decision been made here that didn't get reflected in the doc? I'm using OM Version 1.3.24952 on MacOSX 10.14.6. Thanks for any insights.

  22. I had to toss the folder and empty the trash before Opusmodus would ask to create a new Opusmodus folder, but it worked. Thanks.
  23. I just installed V 1.3.24409, and am getting some errors on startup. The first one is an alert that says: "Error in Hemlock command processing. There is no applicable method for the generic function: #<STANDARD-GENERIC-FUNCTION ENSURE-COMPOSER-PANE #x302001D4373F> when called with arguments: ("/Users/<my username>/Documents/Opusmodus/Extensions/Load CLM Instruments.lisp" #<OM-LAYOUT-CONTROLLER <OMLayoutController: 0x134880> (#x134880)>). After I dismiss that, a window opens that says: Error: File #P"clm:instruments;" does not exist. > While executing: clm-user-ins-path, in process Opusmodus Extension Initialization(6). and then the error recovery options. I have deleted both the ~/Documents/Opusmodus and ~/.opusmodus folders, deleted the prefs file, and searched for any other opusmodus folders, so I'm confident that it's clean. I then reinstalled the newly DL'd Opusmodus, launched it, entered my serial #, and created a new Opusmodus folder. This didn't help. The file ~/Documents/Opusmodus/Extensions/Load CLM Instruments.lisp exists and looks unremarkable. ~/Documents/Opusmodus/CLM/instruments exists and contains a bunch of .ins files. Before I DL'd the new version, I launched the previous version 1.3.24303 and got that same error window complaining about not finding clm:instruments. I am unaware of anything changing on my Mac that might have broken this recently. I'm running Mojave 10.14.2 on an iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014). The Quick Start Workspace loads and plays anyway. Any ideas about how to fix this?
