New Euclidean Rhythm Generator


    Sep 24 2012 | 7:59 am
    Announcing my Euclidean Rhythm Generator! Inspired by the paper 'The Euclidean Algorithm Generates Traditional Musical Rhythms' by Godfried Toussaint. Already existing MFL devices I found on the Web did not satisfy my needs (broken basic algorithm, missing some features I needed, incomplete integration in Ableton Live...). So I wrote my own device starting from scratch.
    - looking for test feedback -

      Nice. Any chance of releasing this a plain Max patch for non Live users? There are a couple of other Bjorklund/Euclid patches around which are fun, so I'd like to try this one, cheers roger

      Sorry only MFL for now. It is a feature rich but no profit project and will soon be released under GPL. In case I receive many requests I might reconsider porting to plain MAX…

      P.S. Be aware that many implementations around are based on a broken algorithm - see also: https://cycling74.com/forums/bjorklund-algorithm

      Yo Jurgen, is it downloadable somewhere?

      has there been a version of the algorithm in gen~ yet? is that possible with gen~ current capabilities? i'm still a little confused on how the algorithm works exactly so i just try different java versions others make.

      I would like to express an interest in a purely Max version as well. This looks really cool, but I don't have M4L.

      roger and nicnut - I will look into it (pure MAX) because it would permit also MIDI multichannel operation, which is not possible in Live…
      cudnylon - I never used gen~ up to now so I don't know. For the Bjorklund algorthm I'm using the port in javascript by withakay https://cycling74.com/forums/bjorklund-algorithm. The algorithm itself does not seem too heavy. I'm not having any performance problems.
      The algorithm is described on page 2 of http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~godfried/publications/banff.pdf.

      I erroneously put this topic under MaxMSP – moving to MAX FOR LIVE https://cycling74.com/forums/euclidean-rhythm-generator-1 -
