so the objects [cz~osc saw] and [spectrum.mmb $0-spectrum] are not recognized, as well as a few others. i cant locate them in your library, and ...
basically im lost. af.
can someone explain it as though im a 3 year old chimpanzee?
so ive found the spectrum one, but i have noooo idea how to download the files
from your library
so ive figured out how to download your library, but i cant locate the cz osc one
(UGH i bet its another stupidly easy to figure out thing but im still stuck AAAARGH!!!)
EDIT (last one maybe? )
so i mightve figured it out... youve removed the cz oscillators altogether from your library?
i think im literally going to cry if thats so.
i am messing around with a wavetable oscillator (using the patch found at the bottom of this page:
and i have a few questions about it\... is it possible to change the start point gradually? can i use [osc~] to change it? is it possible to send non-integer numbers?
alright so ive been playing around with massive the past few days, and i must say i am impressed... thought it was some gimmicky dubstep machine, but it turns out to have some real cool capabilities.
my question is about the synthesis techniques used to create the synth... its my understanding that it uses wavetables, so im assuming that the ppl at native instruments created the waveforms using some sort of program and sets of algorithms, and then took some sort of digital "snapshot" of one cycle of each waveform, and use that as the input for each wavetable... am i correct in assuming such things?
further, i would like to understand these waveforms, as some of them are quite beautiful. a lot of em i recognize as pretty common... but others are pretty out there and new to my ears.
there are some pics of them (i guess someone put em through an oscilloscope)
can i recreate these waveforms with my own math? or is it possible to take the output of massive itself and put it into my own wavetable and use it that way?
any help whatsoever would be appreciated... im new to waveform synthesis, but VERY interested and excited about it.
well, so far i think ive found a new best friend for creating music (pure data,
believe it or not, ive gathered from intense digging and plain old intuition that pure data likes to use mathematics.
the problem is, i dont.
i have never been good at math. my times table looks like a derelict, it takes me a half an hour to do long division, and i never got past high school algebra. part of it was my own fault, and part of it was that i never felt comfortable with my instructors over the years. a lot of times i feel like they just told me to do this this and that, and never "why" (which i need, in order to understand a concept).
anyway, enough about my life story, on with the question.
how about some recommendations for learning mathematics? i think i would learn much more easily with words than formulae, as i understand abstract concepts (geometry actually comes very naturally to me).
a bit of direction, i would mainly like to learn mathematics to help me better understand physics (contemporary), and also to get me to a higher level of using pure data.
thanks for any information, and sorry for my chemistry-driven post-o-rama of incredibly meaningless density.
alright, im a bit of a gnube, so i really have little idea of what im doing when it comes to getting linux systems to work right. what i do know is that all i need is a basic distro with a very simple gui, a very simple web browser, jack, and pd extended. so far ive tried ubuntu, lubuntu, a minimal debian install with xfde, and pure dyne. pure:dyne came with pd and a bunch of externals, but not pd extended; lubuntu and ubuntu installed pd extended just fine, except that it wont load (and ubuntu is a bit heavy for my labptop, anyway); debian wasnt able to install it on a count of some missing or outdated dependencies (libmp3lame0, or something).
is it possible? can i make it work? would someone like to walk me through it like im a small child?
ill even try slackware if itll work.
thanks for any help.
