Definitive formula tables for computer music ?


    Apr 10 2006 | 9:07 am
    Hello,
    As i'm surely NOT a mathematician but a musician, i use to forget every usefull formulas untill i need it again, then i have to waste 10 minutes on the web just to be sure how to convert milliseconds to hertz (i know, i know...). I'm fed up. A friend gave me perfect tables for pitches & amplitudes (cheers to you, Laurent D.), but i wonder if anyone has good ones for hertz & timing & more (everything related to computer music) ??
    thanks in advance

    ps: by the way, dear Christopher Dobrian, i've read again lots of your papers, and i wanna thank you for the great source you made (especially MSP + FFT).

      Perhaps not exactly what you're looking for, but a very useful resource nonetheless (and the links might take you to what you want):
      cheers Roger

      ms to hertz would be [mtof] (standart). there is also ftom somewhere (third party)
      i can offer [110.bend2f], [110.cm2ms], [110.db2lin], [110.nn2ms], [110. nntr], [110.nnts], [110.pythagoras], and [110.spb2bpm]
      for radians-to-hertz there is like 5 different object and patches if you search maxobjects.com
      if you need to convert litter-to-trash you know who to ask, don t you.

      Just tried to get these from maxobjects.com and found link to be dead.

      Thanks Roman, that's pretty cool. While i was looking for a .zip of this (but i suddenly remember your put .bin inside your .zip !), i took a tour : great ending on Silver.mp3 (especially the voice ;-) ). For Windows users : .toast files could be teated as .iso files, so Daemon Tools is your friend to "unzip" it (good to know, isn't ?).

      I pack my tables into patches always, then I don't need to remeber them anymore, but how to find the patches then? Ok I made a patch to find them also... It was inspireded by the thread about an MSP overview patch, which was to big for my screen, even with Gregorys enhancements, so I did it my way...
      I even included a readme to explain how to install it. You will need the St.ools and abhaXions as well and in those collections I do have some conversion patches.
      The good thing is, you can maintain it yourself and include pointers to 3rd party objects. (I included a lot of them already)
      I just realize its too big to post, i'll upload it to cycling/share together with updated versions of my tools.

      P.S.
      just some too simplistic solutions below for the original requests, it seems its not worth to save one object abstractions, but actually it does make a lot of sense, look at it as a comment. much more convenient than an object plus a comment. It even makes sense to save the same patch with different names (comments)...
