Publisher description for ArtSong Lite
Interactive musical building-block based algorithmic music composition framework. Interactive musical building-block based algorithmic music composition framework. ArtSong Lite was developed to be a large and highly configurable musical building-block based algorithmic music composition framework designed for composers, experimental musicians, and advanced music hobbyists. Designed as a general-purpose composition framework, ArtSong is 'intended' to be devoid of any particular musical style; an electronic-procedural manuscript paper that you can apply to any specific composition problem. ArtSong Lite features : - Over 30 algorithm plugins including 8 distribution functions, chaos attractors, image to music, text to music, meter, chord progression generaters, - Controller components supporting any MIDI channel-voice message can be associated with specific tracks, - Unlimited tracks and algorithms per project, - Setup and directly compose an entire score at once or compose in real-time while playing, Tonal compositions can set a pitch-generation probability for each individual pitch-class for adding varying degrees of chromaticity to tonal compositions. - Scale and Chord resources can be defined and applied as defined over the full 1- to 10-octave MIDI pitch range. - Chords defined within a 1-octave range will be repeated each octave, chords defined over a 2-octave range will be applied every two octaves, etc. - A Single-Note Editor has been added for adding-editing of individual note events. - Multiple Time Signatures - Multilevel Undo/Redo - Save projects as MIDI, ArtSong Projects, or simple CSound score files, - Automatic conversion of MIDI files to ArtSong projects, - Build custom libraries of data patterns, presets, and project templates for reuse Requirements: - 200+ Pentium - MIDI Sound Card - MS Jet4 Database Drivers(Download URL provided) Limitations: - 20 days trial - nag screen - The LITE version does not provide any user-interface to the Scripting Engine. - You cannot use Basic or Pascal scripts to create your own custom algorithms or algorithmic composition programs. - Downloaded plugins can not be used with the LITE version; the LITE version can only use the plugins and components provided in the installation package.
