funky solos/bass grooves

Postby timbre » Thu Jan 03, 2008 11:17 am

How could i setup up noatikl to let it generate solo's and bass lines in funk/moog disco style ?

I have midi chords sequenced already playing in the host sequencer,
so i guess i have to make noatikl "listen" to the already present chord progressions, so the generative pieces are harmonically correct.

How can this be done ?

Hi!

We're just about to start work on extending noatikl to be a hyper-instrument, and generally responding to incoming MIDI events in interesting ways, so do please keep an eye on developments on the website/forum! :)

All the very best,

Pete

Hi!

The best bass lines I have heard in Noatikl, have been where patterns are used to "seed" the base, and then allowed to mutate. They can sound pretty fantastic, especially when the patterns really mutate ... and of course, require a good bass synth to sound particularly good!

Best wishes,

Pete

Hi Jim,

Our current focus for Noatikl (now that we've sorted-out the new tiny file format!) is to add-in some Noatikl parameter editing to Mixtikl. I'm hoping to create some new pattern entry/import code here, which should arrive in various forms in both Mixtikl and Noatikl. We're keeping focused on free incremental updates (so that'd presumably be Noatikl 1.8), rather than doing "big-bang" annual releases; that helps us to keep on improving things without imposing artificial timescales.

The good news is that Mixtikl 2.3 seems to be very popular, judging by the comments we've received! The thing that really makes Mixtikl great at what it does, is the generative Noatikl content and engine, so Noatikl remains totally core to what we do.

Best wishes,

Pete

Hi Jim!

That post was from 2008 - since when we added the entire scripting and listening aspect to Noatikl. Which seems to have been pretty popular!

Best wishes,

Pete

To have your bass lines harmonise with MIDI input, you first need to create a "listening" voice that will "track" to your incoming MIDI data.
The bass line voice will then harmonize with the listening voice.
Give it a go - let us know how you get on! :)

Pete

I guess I must have mis-understood; how do you want your Noatikl generated bass lines to respond to your chords, other than by harmonising...?

There are lots of things you could experiment with.

You could for example create a voice that "listens" to incoming MIDI notes, and have that followed by another voice that generates deep arpeggiated bass lines using the chording parameters.

More complex things or specific behaviours might require use of trigger scripts, that require quite a lot of work and careful experimentation & working through the documentation until you can establish the limitations and capabilities of such an approach. Scripting is too open-ended for me to give specific advice on, but there are quite a few Noatikl script users on the forum who might be able to give more detailed advice!

Best wishes,

Pete
