SmileForLive 1.0 – free generative synth

December 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Download SmileForLive for free: http://code.google.com/p/smilesynth/downloads/detail?name=SmileForLive1.0.zip…

This is a simple generative music synthesizer built in Max/MSP created by Diego Caponera, Nicolò Paternoster and Giuseppe Sorce. It involves 5 FM generators which play notes randomly based on a root key and intervals defined by the user. It’s an university project made for an exam for Sound’s Science degree ( Math Department of Roma Tor Vergata ).

The software is distributed “as is”, without any warranty, under a GPL license.

SmileForLive is a 5 parts generative FM synthesizer for MaxForLive, featuring:

* Glitchy palette of sounds
* Change notes with MIDI (from clips and/or controllers)
* Switch Harmonic/Dissonant to avoid dissonant chords
* Clock synced
* Fully MIDI mappable
* Glide!

This is the port of the original SMILE application, plus additional features.
Have fun :)

In the studio: Ableton liveset tryout

October 25, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Ableton in action:

Trying to find a way to combine a couple of tracks and keep it as live as possible(without losing the plot). The control is stock Live and Automap, no Max4Live. Sounds are 50% standard Ableton and 50% sampled hardware (mostly Oberheim Matrix-1000). FX all standard Ableton except the free “King Dubby” plug-in used in the first track. My brain is the bottleneck. I just wish Novation would do a $500 version of the Launchpad with LCD buttons which could display text/color.

MSP Audio Quality

just a couple of clicks and drag in the NEW user interface !

Here’s an overview of what’s new:

  • Discoverability: A “wheel” makes the mysterious functions of different objects immediately visible; Object Explorer makes them easier to find, and new help and reference sidebar keep documentation close at hand.
  • 64-bit audio engine
  • Open multiple patches, solo and mute them, open and close them without stopping audio, mix audio between them with independent volume, and take advantage of multiple processors with multiple patches.
  • Low level building blocks: You don’t get new synth objects, but you could build them yourself. New low-level data-crunching goodness work with MSP audio, Jitter Matrix, and OpenGL textures
  • More JavaScript: An overhauled JavaScript engine makes JS scripting faster and more flexible, and there’s a proper text editor with syntax highlighting (though, of course, you may still prefer your own).
  • New visuals: Vector graphics and “HTML5 Canvas-like” UI scripting (though to me it’s a shame this isn’t just the HTML5 Canvas). There are also massively-expanded Jitter powers, but those are best left to our sister site Create Digital Motion.
  • Filters: New filter-visualizing tools for audio filter construction and manipulation.
  • Dictionary data type and associated objects let you describe information in a more structured way (all kinds of potential here from control to composition)
  • Projects now let you organize data, media, and scripts in the manner more associated with conventional development environments
  • What about Ableton? No news on that front, but I expect more soon. Max for Live users will at the very least get the advantages above, since Max for Live is really Max inside Live.

IannixSequencer – MaxForLive Device

In case you have missed this nice Max for Live device:

A small demo of the “Iannix Sequencer” MaxForLive device I created. Using this device inside Ableton Live and Iannix you can create rhythmic patterns (like using a step – sequencer) with visual feedback of whats going on directly in Iannix.

The second in a series of tutorials about nwdlbots, a suite of generative modules for Ableton Live.

This episode demonstrates the way in which nwdlbots can interact within a Live Set using two modules called “noodle control” and “noodle send”. By attaching noodle sends to each EventBot in a set, you can relay MIDI information to the control module, which collates the information and then feeds it back to the EventBots, informing their decisions regarding onset and pitch.

This allows the bots to work together controlling the density and harmony of the set.

nwdlbots are available for download at sundaydance.co.uk

(Ableton Live and Max for Live required).
