Device Overview

Name/Version: DRK RANDOM NOTE 1.0
Author: DrKesler  
Description: RANDOM NOTE IS A SMALL AND DIDACTIC DEVICE THAT I MADE TO SHOW CLEARLY AND BASICALLY THE FUNCTION OF A MIDI DATA PROCESSOR AND THE NATURE OF THE CONTROLLED RANDOMNESS.

IT WAITS FOR A MIDI NOTE OR GROUP OF NOTES (FROM YOUR MIDI TRACK OR IN REAL TIME FROM EXTERNAL KEYBOARD, FROM THE MOUSE CLICKING THE UPPER KEYBOARD, FROM COMPUTER KEYBOARD IF ENBALE INSIDE LIVE… AND TRANSFORMS IT TO ANOTHER, IN A RANDOM MODE. YOU CAN ALSO PLAY VERTICAL CHORDS TO GET SIMOULTANEOUS RANDOM NOTES.
if you play with the mouse on the keyboard, the higher of the note you play, the higher the midi velocity. Almost always it controls the volume of the played sound.
YOU ALSO HAVE A RANDOM SEQUENCER TO TRY RANDOMNESS, WITH TIME INTERVAL ADJUSTABLE.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO ADJUST THE RANDOMNESS RANGE WITH:
LOWEST: LOWEST NOTE OF THE RANGE
EXTENSION: MAXIMUM POSSIBLE EXTENSION OF THE RANDOMNESS RANGE , IN MIDI NOTES QUANTITY.
SO IF YOU WANT TO CREATE A RANDOM BASSLINE WITHIN AN OCTAVE, PUT FOR EXAMPLE C1 AS LOWEST AND 12 AS RANDOM RANGE.
ANOTHER ONE: YOU WANT A CHROMATIC (SEMITONE) MELODY WITH C3 AS A CENTER: PUT LOWEST C3 AND 2 AS EXTENSION.

WHY ARE WE YELLING? :)

...seriously, it's really difficult to read capitals like that...

beautiful device. really. pumping random sequences to granular synths.. wonderful results. musical !

Wettebeerg...oh I?m sorry about you...For me is easier to read capitals , specially reading from small screens like smartphone...but no problem. I?ll take account for miy next uploads..Thanks and greets.

Uxeexu, thanks very much for your comments :) ! !

Hola Fabian
Enhorabuena,es un dispositivo genial,muy creativo!
Tengo una idea de otra variante de random que no se si es posible realizar:
En tu DRK Random Note se puede configurar un rango de notas espec?fico como destino pero...;
Imagina que has creado un midi clip o has importado un midi clip en una pista midi de ableton.
El midi clip tiene las notas C3 - E4 - A#3 y D4
Ser?a posible aplicar un random exclusivo para estas concretas notas?
Los resultados serian todas las posibles combinaciones de estas notas:
E4 - C3 - D4 - A#3 ..... Incluso repitiendo alguna de ellas (en diferentes octavas tambi?n) y suprimiendo algunas :
E4 - E3 - A#3 - C3
Ser?a un random de el orden de las notas y repeticiones de algunas de las notas y en diferentes octavas
Ser?a posible ?
Gracias por tu creaci?n
Saludos
Mario


Hi Fabian
Congratulations, it's a great device, very creative!
I have an idea of another variant of random do not know if it is possible to:
In your DRK Random Note You can configure a specific note range targeted but ...;
Imagine that you have created a midi clip or have imported a midi clip in ableton midi track.
The clip has midi notes C3 - E4 - A # 3 and D4
It would be possible to apply a unique random for these specific notes?
The results would be all possible combinations of these notes:
E4 - C3 - D4 - A # 3 ..... Even repeating any of them (in different octaves too) and deleting some:
E4 - E3 - A # 3 - C3
Would be of the order of random notes and repeats of some of the notes and in different octaves
Would it be possible?
Thank you for your creation
regards
Mario


Hello Mario, how are you? You say not to randomize them, but aplying a new spreading of them, is it ok? I say, to play with the same notes in different orders...I thinj it is a good idea that maybe could be to make a new plugins as the concept is other....I?ll see to make it when finishing the ones I am doing right now ! : ) Thanks for comments !!!!

Hola Fabian
Gracias por tu r?pida respuesta.
S?,es el concepto de Max MidiShuffler (version midi de Buffershuffler)
El problema en Max MidiShuffler es que no respeta la longitud de las notas originales,debes de configurar las notas procesadas todas a la misma longitud (1/4,1/8....)
Ser?a genial que te animaras a hacerlo a?adiendo tu sello personal.
Suerte con el nuevo plugin que est?s creando.
Saludos desde Espa?a
Mario

Hi Fabian
Thank you for your quick response.
Yes, is the concept of Max MidiShuffler (midi version of Buffershuffler)
The problem is that Max MidiShuffler does not respect the length of the original notes, you must configure the notes processed all to the same length (1/4, 1/8 ....)
It would be great'll encourage you do so by adding your personal touch.
Good luck with the new plugin you are creating.

Mario , I am from Argentina! but I prefer english so all people can read us : )...ok....I will, it does not seems to be very difficult to program...keep iun touch here and in my blog www.fabiankesler.blogspot.com...See you, and greets to Lio Messi and Diego Simeone !! :)

Ok Fabian
Nice to meet you
Greetings :)

Hi Fabian
It would be great to works it in midi clips that contain monophonic notes or polyphonic notes or mixed: monophonic and polyphonic notes
Monophonic:
A3 - E3 - B3 - C2
Applied the effect: C2 - B3 - A3 - E3.....
applied random octaves:
E4 - A2 - C2 - B3.....
Polyphonic:
G2 A2 B2
E2 - F2 - Ab2
C2 D2 F2
Applied the effect:
A2 B2 G2
F2 - Ab2 - E2
D2 F2 C2
You could also applied the function of inversion the chords...
Monophonic and Polyphonic:
E3 - G2 - B2
E2
C2
Applied the effect:
B2 - E3 - G2
E2
C2
Regards :)

I just finished two versions of a plugin wich takes the camera..now I will work with this...Greets!
