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.

Final Project: Due December 4th 2016 (at final performance)

PD example using OSC

Attached is my example from class, connecting to the “localhost” (to yourself!) and sending OSC data over port 9000. You can, of course, modify this with the IP address of another machine if you want to test sending from one computer to another.

Note my post just below with download instructions for PD-extended AND some links for tutorials to get you starter with the basics.

See the help files for [sendOSC] and [dumpOSC] for more options. Click HERE to download … you will need to unzip the patch to get the resulting “.pd” file.


PD Installation guide

To install PD(-extended) on your Mac, PC, or Linux system please visit:

Download the installer appropriate to your operating system and architecture (I don’t recommend the “Alpha” release for prime-time usage. If you are curious about recent developments in the interface (significant) and function of PD or interested in participating in development, you are welcome to download that also).

For some Mac users, you may need to install “X11”, the venerable Unix graphics system on which some of PD’s functionality rests. You can download that, available now as “XQuartz” from here.

Here, too, is mPD, a mobile version for Android, for those interested:

In addition to PD’s built-in Help system, please see the following sites for more help and shared patches.

– PD Forum and Patch Repo – Repository for patches, tutorials, and discussion related to PD.

– PD FLOSS Manuals – including concepts, working patches, and installation/setup help

In Bb crowd-sourced music project, homage to Riley

Reason review and videos of interest

A number of you requested links to video tutorials or other help related to Reason. Here are some resources:

– Reason Subtractor

Please see the following breakdown of the Subtractor analog synthesizer as discussed in lecture.

And more from Propellerheads:
basics — also, a video overview

NN-XT Advanced Sampler

Redrum and Dr. Rex drum machines

Combinators (advances use)

There are many other resource available of varying quality. I always find it informative to peruse the many disparate ways people are using Reason, a remarkably flexible tool for sound design and composition. Often these reveal hidden techniques and tricks for better sound design.
