Hi everybody, I need your kind help
I’d like to add to a musical patch I’m working on a graphical feature with jitter
Basically I need a way to display geometrical shapes that represent 5 audio tracks
the shapes I need to create are circles, hexagons, rectangles, triangles and pentagons
each shape represent and audio track.
each track has different sounds and silences, so each sound must be represented with a shape.
the horizontal value of the window represent time, so each shape will be placed in the window (not scrolling) accordingly to the moment in time that it has been played.
the vertical value represent amplitude
the dimension of a shape is given by the duration of a sound
the color of a shape is given by the a calculation of the mean frequency value played in the segment
I understand that the shapes must be created after the sound has been played, when the level falls under a certain threshold the jitter patch creates the shape, having calculated its amplitude, duration, frequency and time
I know it’s a big deal of work.. any suggestion on how to start this off?
It’s the blind leading the blind here but I think you cannot do it with the jit.lcd – the reference file leads you to Tutorial 29 which is about using the alpha channel – it might be of some help but I cannot remember.
