  1. Hi, is there a print function for the midi display? At the moment I am using "zoom to fit" in fullscreen mode and then make a screenshot but this is a little cumbersome ... Achim
  2. Opusmodus 1.2 can be used from within the Emacs editor as well (see the post at the link below for details). For me as a programmer having additionally access to the Emacs Lisp IDE SLIME is greatly preferable due to various advanced features provided by Slime when compared with the more easy-to-use native IDE of Opusmodus. For more information on SLIME see its website: https://common-lisp.net/project/slime Unfortunately, the SLIME link is seemingly broken in Opusmodus 1.3, which I just started for the first time. For those who have no SLIME installed (but have Qu
  3. Hello, I'm continually receiving the following error on start up: Opusmodus Extension Initialization(5) > Error: Undefined function setup-ins called with arguments ("add" "addflt" "addsnd" "anoi" "arith" "arith1" "arith2" "autoc" "backandforth" "badd" "bandedwg" "bell" "bigbird" "bird" "bowl" "btest" "canter" "cellon" "circular-scanned" "cnv" ...) . > While executing: (:internal ccl::with-compilation-unit-body ccl::load-from-stream), in process Opusmodus Extension Initialization(5). > Type cmd-/ to continue, cmd-. to abort, cmd-\ for a list of availabl
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. What is the Lisp function for stopping playback (bound to the shortcut cmd-esc)? ... I could never add a custom keyboard shortcut to the Opusmodus text editor Hemlock (and I tried), but I just managed adding keyboard shortcuts and a menu for playing Opusmodus snippets and my polyphonic score format to Emacs (thanks to the fact that scores now can be displayed in a separate window). Only need some key for stopping playback as well. (The main thing I will then miss when using Emacs as the Opusmodus IDE is the close integration of the document, but well, you cannot have
  8. Common Music (CM) is another interesting composition system (http://commonmusic.sourceforge.net), and a recent revision of the old CM version 2 (https://github.com/ormf/cm), which was still implemented in Common Lisp (in contrast to later versions defined in Scheme) can be loaded into and used alongside Opusmodus 1.2 without problems. This was possible primarily due to a largely revised load mechanism of the old CM sources. With the new Opusmodus 1.3 this is not possible any more. It seems the problem is caused by the fact that :CLM (and a number of variants) are still added to *
  9. Hallo, newbie here I'm just starting with OM and playing around with the tutorials. I slightly changed tutorial #4 and run into something strange. If i run the script as posted below, all works as expected. But when i change the function reverse to nreverse (and nreverse is the oficially documented name of the function) the omn result will leave the right hand empty. Why ist that? And why does reverse work as i expect it to work? And, another thing: i dont understand what the term seed will do. Will it make random functions behave always the sam
  10. Hi, I am getting back to Opusmodus after a long time. I am excited about the support for OSC in this new release. I have two questions: 1) Normally when we use OSC to send to a destination, we use an "address" like "/a/b/c". A device that has this destination "address" is expected to receive the message and act on it. How and where do we specify that address in "osc-thread" function. Just to give an example, a couple of years ago, I had written an article on how to control Reaktor using OSC. If I want to do something similar using OM, what is the procedure? 2) There
  11. Dear Friends, I'm happy to announce that my doctoral dissertation in music composition will have many Opusmodus examples ! I'd like to know how the best way to export plots, and midi piano roll (assistants) for using as examples in Microsoft Word, PDF applications, vectorial graphic software (like Corel), etc I was just snapshoting the screen with built in mac snapshot function (CMN + CTRL + SHIFT + 4) but wondering if there are some method for saving the output. Best, Julio
  12. When I try to open an XML file generated in Opusmodus snippet in Musescore 3, I get a message (File Corrupted). I have to open it in Finale and then export as XML. After that I can open it in Musescore. I do´t know why... But I decided to report it to you. Best, Julio
  13. 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.

  14. So I'm very happy to be exploring new snippet structure but cannot seem to define my own instrument, based on the example in the help file I did this but get errors: SOLVED: I had to Evaluate my Def-Inst before it would play..
  15. After installing the newest version, I receive this diagnostic. Not sure at all what it means. There is no applicable method for the generic function: #<STANDARD-GENERIC-FUNCTION ENSURE-COMPOSER-PANE #x302001CFAA4F> when called with arguments: ("/Users/RSTGSU/Opusmodus/Extensions/Load CLM Instruments.lisp" #<OM-LAYOUT-CONTROLLER <OMLayoutController: 0x735e90> (#x735E90)>) Nor do I know how to solve it.
  16. Dear All, I have a little suggestion for workflow. 1) A simple context menu button (or some way) to open the XML snippet in other software. Like right-clicking on the snippet and have an option (OS based option) like "open with" (musescore, finale, sibelius, etc) This could be useful for collecting material for a piece to be edited outside Opusmodus. I personally use Musescore with my students. It's free, open and runs windows and mac. I also use Finale for myself. This simple options could solve the problem of the audition of many differ
  17. 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.

  19. For sound synthesis purposes (e.g., for an expressive performance), we may want to use note lengths beyond the restricted set of quantised note durations. However, Opusmodus currently prevents various irregular note duration sequences to be auditioned and throws an error instead. What is really interesting, though, is that the notation for such irregular durations still seem to work. It might make sense the other way round (i.e. refusing to notate certain rhythms -- though I am definitely not voting for introducing that :), but I don't see any real reason why arbitrary rhythms may not be audit
  20. Dear Friends, I'm setting some 12-tone examples for classroom. I just want to show some rows with motives, in the example below. I'd like to force this omn expression to make a snippet in 4/4 only or 2/4, without having to use def score. Is it possible ? It's easier for faster classroom purposes. Best, Julio (setf clodorow '(a4 gs5 c5 d5 bb4 b4 fs5 f5 cs5 g5 ds5 e5)) (setf serierit '(q.. s -s s s s -s e._q -s s -s s_q)) (make-omn :length serierit :pitch clodorow :velocity '(pp sfz p < f pp mf mf mp mp) :length-symbols t)
  21. I really like how Opusmodus allows to preview monophonic snippets (and other material, like interval sequences). No need to explicitly call some function or connect to some editor, as in other composition systems -- just use a keyboard shortcut to see and hear an intermediate result. However, what I miss is notating/auditioning intermediate results of polyphonic music with a single shortcut. So, I defined the function preview-score, based on def-score. The function expects a polyphonic score in the slightly simplified format we discussed earlier. Here is a minimal example.
  22. a minor correction suggested... I know this is fairly basic, but it made a beginner like me do a double take... this is the helpfile: but further down it says... yet 'size' (which is in the type for a &key) is not a valid keyword, it refers to 'number'... thought it may help others... must be a nightmare keeping all help-files consistent, my sympathies! best, Julio
  23. Following from this question, I want to use several different Lisp packages through quicklisp, but I can't get the installation to work correctly. After doing some digging, I found out that the path to quicklisp is not defined correctly. This is the content of the ql:*quicklisp-home* global: > ql:*quicklisp-home* #P"/Users/opusmodus/quicklisp/" I realised that changing this manually doesn't fix the issue, and because of this I can't install or use quicklisp correctly. Note that I do not have a user by the name opusmodus and creating that directory with my
  24. Hi, I get the following error warning, when I try to audition the omn and I don't get why..? With a def-score section all compiles fine > Error: The GET-SPAN output denominator is not a power of two (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ...). Denominator: 12. > While executing: get-time-signature-l, in process Listener-1(8). > Type cmd-. to abort, cmd-\ for a list of available restarts. > Type :? for other options. (simplified) code: (setf zahlen3 '((-3/8 3/8 -1/8 -3/8) (1/2 5/8 1/4) (5/8 1/4 -3/8) (1/8 3/8 1/4 1/2) (-3/8 1/4 -1/8 1/4 1/8 -3/8)
  25. Hi, I have a small suggestion concerning MAKE-SCALE: It would be a nice extension, if one can use lists in :alt would be an easy way to construct symmetric scales and more complex sieves. simple example: (make-scale 'c3 8 :alt '(1 2)) => (c3 cs3 eb3 e3 fs3 g3 a3 bb3) same as: (flatten (list (gen-mix (make-scale 'c3 4 :alt 3) (make-scale 'cs3 4 :alt 3)))) => (c3 cs3 eb3 e3 fs3 g3 a3 bb3) Happy New Y(ear)(s)! ole
