    Announcement:
    The ZiMT, a new "center for innovative music technology" ("Zentrum für innovative Musiktechnologie") of the "University for music and performing arts Vienna" gladly announces the availability of the first two ZiMT-Tools (by Johannes Kretz)
    Please visit: www.mdw.ac.at/zimt/ and go to the "downloads" section.
    ** spectral:delay a FFT patch for Max/MSP
    ** spectral:cross:synth cross synthesis and sound freeze, a FFT patch for Max/MSP
    More sophisticated Tools for spectral interpolation will be available soon.
    Kindest regards, Johannes Kretz composer, researcher www.johanneskretz.com
    About ZiMT:
    In June 2008 a new "center for innovative music technology" ("Zentrum für innovative Musiktechnologie, ZiMT) was founded at the University for music and performing art Vienna. Organizationally being part of the institute for composition and electroacoustics and headed by the Austrian composer Johannes Kretz the ZiMT connects the universities intitutes, works interdisziplinarily and gives important impulses for research in the fields of computer aided music theory (computer aided composition, artificial intelligence), computer music (live electronics, sound processing and synthesis) as well as multimedia performance (sensor technology, net art, media art).
    Particular attention is given to the connection of research and education. Also combined research and educational projects with the participation of several institutes and disciplines are essential in order to develop new tools for composers, peformers and actors and in order to obtain important synergies from the direct interaction of of research and teaching, both, in the frame of the university as well as aimed at the music and artistic world outside. Furthermore the supervision of related master theses will lead to new tools and insights usefull for artistic work.
    Besides the ZiMT actively connects the university with the international artisctic and scientific community through participation and organisation of meetings and congresses and through building a network of cooperations with related organisations. Cooperations with partners from economy, media world and cultural life should provide ways to third party funds and help the students to get in touch with their future professional life.

      Dear Maxers,
      the ZiMT, a new "center for innovative music technology" ("Zentrum für innovative Musiktechnologie") of the "University for music and performing arts Vienna" gladly announces the availability of the two more ZiMT-Tools by Johannes Kretz
      Please visit:
      www.mdw.ac.at/zimt/
      and go to the "downloads" section.
      spectral:delay a FFT patch for Max/MSP
      spectral:cross:synth cross synthesis and sound freeze, a FFT patch for Max/MSP
      shuffler a realtime shuffling patch, granulating and shuffling live audio input forwards and reversed
      KLANGPILOT III (alpha) a sophisticated engine for interpolation between 3 different sounds in realtime using spectral analysis and resynthesis, requires the [iana~] external from IRCAM forum
      Hope, there is something usefull for you among them...

      Thanks a lot for sharing ! The UI is definitely not sexy but the result rocks. I'm recording beautiful things with the fft-cross-synthesis.
      Cheers

      Glad to hear, that you enjoy the patch - acoustically...
      if you decide to create an improved user interface, that might be interesting for others, maybe consider mailing it to me, so that I can put it on the download page...
      cheers, Johannes www.mdw.ac.at/zimt/

      That's exactly what i'm doing. I'll submit the modified patch to you soon.
      Thanks again for the work

      They all sound beautiful, my favorite is between Shuffler and Cross-Synth. Great work!

      Great patches. Thanks for sharing

      Dear Maxers,
      another tool from ZiMT ("center for innovative music technology" of the "university for music and performing arts Vienna" is available for download:
      sound:indexing Analyses a soundfile (a song for example) by cutting it into little segments and storing the midi pitch of each segment. Later this can be used to play an arbitrary piece of music on a keyboard by triggering randomly one of those segments that have the required pitch. The technique is somehow similar to those of photographic mosaics.
      If you are interested, please visit:

      and go to the "downloads" section.
      Enjoy!
      Best regards, Johannes Kretz

      These are great patches, thanks for sharing with us!

      Thanks for sharing these ! I thought the cross-syhth was quiet informative on the subject off FFT.
    • Mar 15 2009 | 12:25 pm
      I'm glad that you like the patches! Actually I programmed most of the cross-synth patch during one of my computer music classes, so I was kind of forced to do it in an understandable way
      Best, Johannes
