torstenanders Posted July 11, 2020 Share Posted July 11, 2020 Hi, Is there perhaps a way to adjust the overall duration of a nested (barred) OMN sequence? In particular, is there a function to cut notes etc. at the beginning/end of a sequence, so that the result has a specified overall duration? The first example just demonstrates what I would like to have. (setf phrase '((1/2 c4 1/4 d4) (1/4 e4 1/2 c4))) ;; Edit phrase such that the result is exactly 5/4 long by preserving the nesting structure (function-I-am-looking-for 5/4 phrase) ; => ((h c4 q d4) (q e4 c4)) ; cut material at end ; => ((q c4 q d4) (q e4 h c4)) ; cut material at beginning There already exist at least two functions that are close, but not quite what I need. ;; Does not keep nesting structure (length-span 5/4 phrase) ; => (h c4 q d4 e4 c4) ;; Adjusts individual sublists (length-adjust 5/4 phrase) ; => ((h c4 q d4 -h) (q e4 h c4 -)) Is there perhaps also a function that does what my example function-I-am-looking-for above does? Thanks a lot! Best, Torsten Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
