Concert Order

Please see below for a concert order. We will try to keep the concert moving by have all three stations (studio laptops 1 and 2 or your own computer) filled with performers at all times, one performing and the others preparing.

If you are not, for any reason, not listed here or must adjust your time on the concert (think roughly an hour per section), let me know ASAP. I have tried to accommodate all desired times, alternate studio and personal computers, and provide variety in the performance. I’m excited for the performance.

Interconnectivity and network controllers

Below are several examples of the methods discussed in today’s lecture.

1. Ableton Live and Rewire:

2. MIDI loopback devices and the OSX IAC bus with Live:

– On Windows there is MIDI Yoke, part of MIDI OX

3.  Soundflower audio loopback:

4. Open Sound Control

Materials for lab, 9/21/17

Please download the following items:

Studio B audio fixed AND saving Live projects for upload

Two issues to bring to your attentions:

  1. The audio in studio B was crackling in Ableton Live and I was able to fix it today. Someone had apparently set the audio buffer (how much audio the system stores before having to spit it out) to a very small value. I have increased the buffer and now all audio sounds perfect.
  2. When saving your Live projects (the project folder), it is important that all of the audio files used in the project go along with it. Please use “File–>Collect All and Save” to make sure all sounds, wherever they may be stored on the lab computers, have been “collected.

#2 has an FAQ if you need more details: Collect All and Save in Ableton Live

Collect All and Save in Ableton Live

Ableton Live projects are stored in folders, containing all pertinent audio files, processed files, MIDI, and other project details. When files are added during mixing (drag-and-drop, etc), their location on the disk is referenced BUT the file itself is not automatically copied into the project folder.

In order to make sure that all files are stored together in the project folder (to bring to another studio, to upload as part of your finished Project #1, etc), please use “File–Collect All and Save”, which gathers all files into the project folder automatically.

See here for more details: How to ‘Collect All and Save’ a Live Set

H4n portable recorders, data transfer to lab systems

There are two methods for transferring audio data from the portable recorders available from the Cox Music Library reservation desk:

  1. Transfer the data using the supplied mini USB cable.
  2. Remove the SDCARD from the recorder and connect it directly to the iMac computers (the port is found, awkwardly) on the back)

John Cage

I was pleased in this afternoon’s lecture for John Cage to have come up in our discussion. Today is, in fact, the composer’s birthday! To celebrate, here are two pieces of his to enjoy:

WATER WALK

SONATA V FROM SONATAS AND INTERLUDES

Studios accessible to students of Music 1421

A reminder for studio signups:

Studios available to students of Music 1421 include Studio B (B25B), Studio C (B25C), and Studio D (B25D). Please be sure to choose one of these three from the drop-down menu at the top of the page when reserving a time.

If you sign up for time slots in Studio A (B27) you will be unable to access it as it is on a separate key and security.

Studio access with your ID should be available today at the latest.

Concert order and rehearsal times

Below is the concert order for tomorrow at 3pm in Lincoln B21 including your assigned rehearsal slot. PLEASE BE ON TIME AND READY WITH YOUR MATERIALS. The ten minutes can be a very useful slot, but only if you arrive ready to work. Machine/studio assignments are listed at the far left. Note again the alternation intended to facilitate a smooth performance and rehearsal process. The studio studios, C and D, will be emptied starting at 9am for rehearsals.

If your name does not appear below or if a change is required, email me immediately. I look forward to seeing your work tomorrow!!
