Midi Note Creator
I play guitar and look for a good way to create sight reading material, and maybe there is something more hidden in the depth of M4L getting the machine to get creative in a way.
I guess this idea is not new…
I don´t have much experience in M4L and I have the feel that MAX could probably do it. so Thank you very much for your experience!!! if you like to put me on work. ;-))
The root is that I would like making M4L spit out MIDI Notes, making scales and chords out of note structures, which:
a) Max designs itself
b) the User defines
This could be anything of the common realm (Pentatonics, Modes, Symmetric Scales, Arpeggios, etc), but as well weird random stuff. (keyword: organized chaos)
Later on I would like to implement algorithms to alter the basic material.
A simple example would be the C major triad c-e-g which can occur in its inversions
e-g-c and g-c-e.
and the hole thing should be presented in an appropriate design as well. Maybe its possible to transfer the results into a MIDI File for printing out to play that stuff….
How to build this?
Thanks for your kind help and this great book
I ran through the book and did not find anything about how to put those MAX patches results into a score (generating MIDI File, something like that)
Maybe there is a way to do that.
the most important rule for "how to build this" is, in my experience, build it in small parts.
the same is true when asking for help … how to build a complex project with dozens of features is nothing which could be explained in 3 lines of text.
i could show you how one could do the inversion job, but not the whole thing. plus, if i do, i would take away all your freedom to decide how it is designed. :)
very true, what you say. I would not expect writing the whole thing here.
Its just an idea that I myself try to get in shapis kind of arte best programming platform for the (concept etc). My question would be about if this is realize-able so to speak with MAX. I GUESS its the best platform for this.
How complex it might become is clear to me after Tobias wrote this wonderful book link. No question about this…
A concrete question of mine would be how to fix the MIDI Output of MAX in a score, generating a Midi – File for Sibelius etc. As I found there is a lot of potential to generate MIDI Notes, but how to fix them the way they are played in MAX.
I think there is a MIDI out device. How would you sophisticated cats transform that output into a traditional score notation.
Thank you very much for your help here. I learn a lot and the travel goes on.
bach library ?
bach cool, too.
I think the seq device is pretty good to start with.
I would love to see a workflow on this. How it is used.
Even if its only quarter note ticks from the metro device that are transormed into a printable score.
Don´t get me wrong, I am actually reading your intended sources, but you know….
I attached a file. How could I see the generated notes and bring them into a pdf file?
The whole thing shall be programmed even more sophisticated to generate random sight reading examples.
Thank you very much
in the tutorials you have this nice info line at the bottom of the patcher. If you float over a device the function (name) is shown there. Where Can I switch that on in my patcher, where it is painfully missing?
