Generative composition?


    Jul 23 2006 | 3:10 pm
    Hi,
    I have just downloaded Max/MSP today and I'm a complete novice so please excuse my ignorance!
    What I want to do is press 'record' on a MIDI track in Cubase and for a random sequence of notes to be generated on that MIDI track.
    Does anyone know whether something has been written to do this that I can modify further to do other things I want to then be able to do (e.g. use a MIDI controller to increase/decrease the flow of random notes)?
    Is this the same as generative composition?
    Many thanks & kind regards
    Leon

      You can do what you described by using the metro, random, makenote, and noteout objects. Read the tutorials on them to learn how they are used.
