ZiMT-Tools now available for download

Announcement:

The ZiMT, a new “center for innovative music technology” (“Zentrum für
innovative Musiktechnologie”) of the “University for music and
performing arts Vienna” gladly announces the availability of the first
two ZiMT-Tools (by Johannes Kretz)

Please visit:

and go to the “downloads” section.

** spectral:delay
a FFT patch for Max/MSP

** spectral:cross:synth
cross synthesis and sound freeze, a FFT patch
for Max/MSP

More sophisticated Tools for spectral interpolation will be available
soon.

About ZiMT:

In June 2008 a new “center for innovative music technology” (“Zentrum
für innovative Musiktechnologie, ZiMT) was founded at the University
for music and performing art Vienna. Organizationally being part of the
institute for composition and electroacoustics and headed by the
Austrian composer Johannes Kretz the ZiMT connects the universities
intitutes, works interdisziplinarily and gives important impulses for
research in the fields of computer aided music theory (computer aided
composition, artificial intelligence), computer music (live electronics,
sound processing and synthesis) as well as multimedia performance
(sensor technology, net art, media art).

Particular attention is given to the connection of research and
education. Also combined research and educational projects with the
participation of several institutes and disciplines are essential in
order to develop new tools for composers, peformers and actors and in
order to obtain important synergies from the direct interaction of of
research and teaching, both, in the frame of the university as well as
aimed at the music and artistic world outside. Furthermore the
supervision of related master theses will lead to new tools and insights
usefull for artistic work.

Besides the ZiMT actively connects the university with the international
artisctic and scientific community through participation and
organisation of meetings and congresses and through building a network
of cooperations with related organisations. Cooperations with partners
from economy, media world and cultural life should provide ways to third
party funds and help the students to get in touch with their future
professional life.

Dear Maxers,

the ZiMT, a new “center for innovative music technology” (“Zentrum für
innovative Musiktechnologie”)
of the “University for music and performing arts Vienna” gladly announces the availability of the two more ZiMT-Tools by Johannes Kretz

Please visit:

and go to the “downloads” section.

spectral:delay
a FFT patch for Max/MSP

spectral:cross:synth
cross synthesis and sound freeze, a FFT patch for Max/MSP

shuffler

a realtime shuffling patch, granulating and shuffling live audio input forwards and reversed

KLANGPILOT III (alpha) 

a sophisticated engine for interpolation between 3 different sounds in realtime using spectral analysis and resynthesis, requires the [iana~] external from IRCAM forum

Hope, there is something usefull for you among them…

Thanks a lot for sharing ! The UI is definitely not sexy but the result rocks. I’m recording beautiful things with the fft-cross-synthesis.

Cheers

Glad to hear, that you enjoy the patch – acoustically…

if you decide to create an improved user interface, that might be interesting for others, maybe consider mailing it to me, so that I can put it on the download page…

cheers,
Johannes

That’s exactly what i’m doing. I’ll submit the modified patch to you soon.

Thanks again for the work

They all sound beautiful, my favorite is between Shuffler and Cross-Synth. Great work!

Dear Maxers,

another tool from ZiMT (“center for innovative music technology” of the “university for music and performing arts Vienna” is available for download:

sound:indexing
Analyses a soundfile (a song for example) by cutting it into little segments and storing the midi pitch of each segment. Later this can be used to play an arbitrary piece of music on a keyboard by triggering randomly one of those segments that have the required pitch. The technique is somehow similar to those of photographic mosaics.

If you are interested, please visit:

and go to the “downloads” section.

Enjoy!

Best regards,
Johannes Kretz

Thanks for sharing these !
I thought the cross-syhth was quiet informative on the subject off FFT.

I’m glad that you like the patches!
Actually I programmed most of the cross-synth patch during one of my computer music classes, so I was kind of forced to do it in an understandable way

Wink

Best,
Johannes
