a WAV file is audio data and cannot contain MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) information.
A midi file, (usually .mid) contains a sequence of midi events - coded messages to be interpreted by midi instruments or software. A midi file can contain information on pitch, velocity, etc
You say the wav file 'contains the midi audio signal' - perhaps you or someone else has used software that renders a midi file as wav audio? If this is the case you need to go back to the original midi file if you want to work with that data.
Online collaborative music system Netpd 2.3.0 has been released!
Get it here: https://www.netpd.org/Download
Lots of updates and improvements plus...
New instruments since last release:
ripple 1: sample-based synthesis similar to soundfonts
ep-mk2: physical model of an e-piano (port of @MikeMorenoDSP ’s ep-mk2)
filtlib: finally a suite of filters (based on mmb)
Another sample from the work-in-progress ...
I thought it would be worth having a category for these more self-contained collections
Modular Systems in Pd
Kraken - Virtual Guitar Effects Pedal Board
Open toolkit for hardware and software interactive art-making systems
Pd Modular Synthesizer
A previous incarnation of Automatonism
any others that should be in there?
Thanks for all the replies to this. It's taken me a while to understand the various responses I got to this idea but it's gradually become a bit clearer. It seems that there are actually several possible Pd wikis that could be made or combined:
A wiki of Pd objects - a sort of in-depth illustrated help with tips and examples for every object and external
A wiki of Pd methods and applications - how to use Pd; e.g. handling midi, random functions, FFT, etc
A wiki of Pd resources, links, and examples - a guide to what is available online, Pd tutorials, instruments - a kind of collective annotated bookmarks collection
The last one is what I personally had in mind initially and I have my own version here:
which anyone is welcome to join in on. It's currently a bit of a mess and not sorted into any real system. I understand from certain replies that some people don't think it's a good idea to make access to other people's work too easy but I think the more fun you have with Pd, without having to learn everything the hard way, the better.
@JackOats @whale-av I think the problem might be arising from something much simpler - Automatonism works by using the same structure all the time. It needs the main patch file to be called main.pd and it needs to be in the same folder as some other stuff. If you work on the patch and save it with a new name the ability to edit it with the module generator will be lost because it wants to make the modules in a file called main.pd. This is why I suggest simply copying the whole Automatonism folder and renaming the folder (not the files in it) for each project.
@JackOats the problems you are having are to do with using Automatonism which is a system built with Pure Data - it makes things easier by giving you a set of readymade modules, but it can be confusing because you are still working within Pure Data. So when you click on File/New Pd gives you a blank Pd canvas - that's normal. It seems that in Automatonism you need to use the main.pd file as the starting point.
Any Automatonism users here who can help?
I had a quick look at the Automatonism docs and found this note...
"9 IMPORTANT!!! In order for Automatonism to work properly, each patch needs to contain the correct folder structure. A folder--that you can name freely--must contain the folder "patch_editor_abs" and the pd-file "main.pd". Copy the entire main parent folder to start a new project. Please do not add the abstractions to your PD Search path, because the state svaing system will be writing textfiles in your external folders."
@jameslo it's not quite that effect - with a delread the loop is resampled and degrades as it speeds up and is slowed down again and the variable write speed isn't achieved either. It's been a long time since I used the reel-to-reel but I have a vague memory of putting a bit of card or tape over the erase head.
@whale-av thanks! i'll try that
