Polyphonic Random Intervals

March 7th, 2010 2 comments

This is a program I created that allows you to add some randomization to what you play. It waits for a MIDI message in, then alters that note up a perfect 3rd, a perfect 5th, a perfect 7th, or an octave, also it is velocity sensitive and is polyphonic! I wanted to add more controls but as they say “keep it simple, stupid!” I planed on adding the other intervals but wanted to share what I have with the world! Shoot me an e-mail with any suggestions, and I will be more than happy to add them to the program. Watch for updates and new versions.

Download PRI for windows
Download PRI nanoKEY edition for windows

Updates coming soon!
– More Intervals: minor 2nd, major 2nd…. diminished… (As of now, it supports perfect intervals.)
– Color coordination for diminished/augmented/major/minor/perfect inversions
– Negative inversions: octave down…. perfect 5th down… etc. (Currently, it adds value to the note you are playing.)

PRI nanoKey edition allows you to turn on/off the three middle controls with the pitch down, pitch up and mod buttons on your nanoKEY controller
keys

Listen to “C,D#,G#” a quick song I made with the PRI pressing only three notes C, D# and G# making the Cm chord. I recorded some loops in Abelton and threw on a beat. I had the “octave” and “5th” settings activated during this song, there are 4 different MIDI loops. Enjoy

I updated my Chords application for the launchpad. I added control using the top row of buttons. and fixed the problem where you had to press each button once to activate them.

Max/MSP/PD Chiptune externals

Here is a really cool repository of some chiptune patches. I was happy to find these because I have always enjoyed chip tune sounds. I have made a touch screen/MIDI interface for the atari2600 external and I will probably make some more. I just wanted to make a multi touch MIDI interface, but after playing with the externals from this link I just had to integrate one into my design. You can download Phew for windows right now. If you guys like it I will make something eles with the NES patcher.

Christmas + MAX/MSP = Random7

December 26th, 2008 No comments

So this holiday season I was gifted my very own copy of MAX/MSP, and it is sweet.  While I was playing around with it today, as I was hanging out with the family, I created this fun little application I’m calling Random7.  It is basically a 8 step sequencer that outputs midi by randomly selecting from the 7 notes in the various scales pictured above, and also randomly selects the velocity of each of the notes.  The layout is very simple, the drop down menu lets you select your scale, noteout lets you choose your midi i/o, the start/stop button does just that, the knob adjusts speed, and you can click on any of the red spots to trigger a note manually.  It produces great background music, I like to have it trigger one of my piano soft synths in Ableton via midi yoke.  Now this is my first program written in MAX so it might not be the most effient app yet, but I do plan on digging back into it later on, so if you have any feedback it would be much appreciated.  Also I am new to the building an application process in MAX, so I believe this version will only work on windows systems.  I’ll be posting the Mac version as soon as I figure out how to make it.  Enjoy.
