How to avoid to write data like Volume, Panorama etc. in the midi-file

Recommended Posts


When I use a midi-file produced by OM in Logic, changes of data like Volume or Panorama I make in Logic are overwritten by the data stored in the midi-file. Is there a way to change this behaviour? Or is there a way to erase all those data in Logic?

Thanks for help!

You can overwrite them in the Logic List Editor.

For a midifile, the Janusz's solution is the good one, but may be it can help to know also how to use in Logic environment a transformer for remove such type of information in Input when driving Logic from Opusmodus.

See attached picture.

      with these functions you could write your CENTS for tuning directly into OMN-attributes, and extract it afterwards
      1. generate by add-cents-tuning-to-text-atrributes the cent values into text-attributes (only one time), you could decide if it will be shown in the score "as CENTS or as FLOAT"
      2. now you could write your CENTS for tuning into OMN-attributes like 50ct, -34ct ...also in combination with other text-attributes legno+50ct, pizz+-65ct, -45ct+batt
      3. you could EXTRACT afterwards your LIST for TUNING directly from OMN by   get-tuning-from-omn*.if an EVENT has no cent-attribute it will be unchangend (= 0 cents)

      I have a problem, I can not finalize an import of a midi file in OPMO. As you can see in the screenshot, the file is imported into the piano-roll, it is correctly read but when in the File menu I want to access "Midi to Partition", this function remains inactive. Do you have an idea to solve this problem?
      Thank you in advance.

      I am working on a sound installation for two voices (using Soniccouture's Geosonics VST plugin and a vibraphone VST plugin running through a computer). The source of the data is taken live from the internet and is actually API weather data from a city in South Korea. The piece will play for 2 hours every night between early December and early March. 
      The trouble I am having is how to transform the different fragments of weather data into data I could use within Opusmodus. Here's the type of data that I get according to each parameter (the options are either floating points, integers, or T/F). All of this is on my computer as OSC signals.
      1. wind direction: floating points, between 0 and 360.0
      2. wind speed: floating points
      3. sky code (i.e., clear, cloudy, rain, snow): integers
      4. precipitation type: integers (codes for each type of precipitation) 
      5. temperature (celcius): floating points
      6. temperature minimum: floating points
      7. temperature maximum: floating points
      8. humidity: floating points (representing percentage, example 31.1% = 31.1)
      9. pressure: float points (time of writing this, pressure of the place I was looking at was 1008.9 while here in Seoul, the pressure is 922.8)
      10. lightning: True or False option
      My questions are: 
      - How can I receive OSC signals within Opusmodus? Is there a function that allows me to do this?
      - I've never used the Live Coding function in Opusmodus although I've got a basic knowledge of live coding within other environments such as SuperCollider, Sonic Pi, and Max/MSP. I would like to have the data control the live coding functions modulate the music as it plays live. 
      I would really, really appreciate any advice I may get on this. I don't mean to have the community here 'do everything' for me, but I'd appreciate any direction I may get in successfully accomplishing this project.  
      Thanks very much and sorry for any trouble,
