ambitus for other instruments

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to know if there is any way to contribute to the list of instruments as found under ambitus-instrument? I often compose for Oud and Korean traditional instruments, and it would be nice to find other instrument templates that are ready to work with.

We can add the instrument names to the list.

Please send me the name of the instrument and the range.


(alto-flute (-5 31))
(alto-flute-g (-5 31))
(alto-flute-f (-7 33))
(alto-flute-eb (-8 33))
(bass-flute (-14 13))
(bass-flute-bb (-14 13))

Dear Janusz,

Many thanks for this. I will suggest some instruments and give their ranges. Oud is a little problematic only because it is not built in a standard way and the tuning of the instrument is different depending on school/country/region. I guess that means there would need to be several types of different Ouds (and different musicians use instruments with different string numbers). I personally play on a seven string Oud.

      Has the function find-ambitus perhaps be renamed or otherwise be refactored? I cannot find it anymore, but some of my code depends on it.
      I seems it can be reproduced with possibly new function get-ambitus, but as I do not have the doc of find-ambitus with its defaults, but because I do not have the doc of find-ambitus anymore, I am not quite sure. 
      Thank you!

      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..

      This sound-set below is part of the Opusmodus system and is used here to demonstrate what the group will be focussing on - creating new sound sets for old and new samples, synthesisers or any other software. Opusmodus can control any system that accepts MIDI CC. We have great results with Reaktor and Kyma system.
