I am programming generative music and I was wondering about different ways of syncing multiple instruments together. Which one is more accurate?: creating a patch with one metro object, and sending the signal to each instrument to process, or to have each instrument have a metro object of its own, and starting them simultaneously?
I have experienced trouble with a main metro object sending signal to each instrument.. it seems like when the signal is going into several layers of subpatches, some delay occurs which depends on the number of subpatches, the objects it goes through etc.. Whereas two metro objects started with the same BANG in different subpatches provide no extra delay.
this is a patch for creating generative music
inspired by jonny greenwood and steve reich mostly
its not a big deal really
i just wanted to share
open __main, then press "m"
to stop, press "."
have fun listening to music!
so you have to have some input in your adc 1 in order to make this work
enable dsp, then press key 110 (key==110) on your keyboard to start the patch
wait 30sec then MAGIC
stop the patch by pressing key 46
heres a version with drums. the code is really ugly, but its 5 am here and i need some sleep. its easier to start and stop, but you still have to wait 30sec, because thats how MAGIC works
