    Music XML output on its way. Been working really hard on this in my spare time for the past couple of weeks. Coupled with lilypond editing fatigue and a prod from Charles Gaskell I bit the bullet and wrote the code for this after looking at it again and deciding that it’s probably now worth it. Each bit of software seems to fail in its own way when importing XML, but finale seems to be pretty good. Just imported 90k+ lines of xml without error for the first time 🙂 (that’s about 100 times more code than Lilypond)

    Tags: MaxMSP, PD, PD Vanilla, Pure Data, qlist, slippery-chicken   

    With the demise of the extended version of Pure Data, we’ve lost the seq object for reading/playing MIDI files. I know there are alternative libraries out there but I would like to play a MIDI file in PD for teaching purposes. Sequencing in PD vanilla is really done with the qlist object, which I love, though I do find it a little frustrating that PD can’t handle reading that most standard of files, the MIDI file. On a more positive note, qlist is also available in Max so it’s a really handy object/format in both environments.

    Anyway, I’ve just added a new function (midi2qlist) to slippery chicken that converts from a MIDI file to a qlist text file format. I’ve tried it with a few different MIDI files and it seems to be working fine, but it wouldn’t hurt if other people took a poke. You can get the code via (update-app-src …) or from the svn-latest tag on the svn server.

    Tags: rthm-seqs, slippery-chicken   

    When creating rthm-seq-palettes you can add empty bars with the requisite number of rests but the easiest thing to do is simply leave them blank:

    (5 ((1 ((((3 4) { 7 (28/3) - 28/3 x 6 - })
             ((2 4) (q) g e (e)) ()
             ((5 8)))))))

    Note that two empty bars are created there: the first by a simple empty list: (), the second by a change of time signature followed by no rhythms ((5 8))
