I am looking into the different possibilities, platforms and software tools to turn data into meaningful sound representations.
To start it of, I want to build some typical proof of concept layouts: turning the graph of the temperatur in a climate chart into a tone that changes pitch – the hotter it was, the higher the pitch etc.
What I am looking for, is a Patch / Tool / PlugIn that can import data (.csv / copy paste) and map it to audio parameters like pitch (MIDI data) or pan, volume, filters (automation data – XML for example?).
So can anybody recommend anything? I am sure there must be patches around already!
And what platform would you recommend? (Max / Max4Live / PureData)?
Tips, Tricks and Tutorials are also welcome of course!
Thanks in advance!
