New Euclidean Rhythm Generator
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.

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,
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: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=35589
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…
The algorithm is described on page 2 of http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~godfried/publications/banff.pdf.
