Actually I am kind of old, but I only recently bought the iOS iPad bundle and Noatikl won’t let me get anything else done now.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
I have some questions about saving settings so that I can use them across different pieces without having to copy/paste every single object from one piece to another to another to another--I tend to create iterations of nearly the same thing for a while, so user presets are something of an obsession:
- 1. Is there a way to save scales so that they show up on the dropdown list for scale rules? Any other kinds of rules would be useful to be able to save also; but I like to work with scales even more esoteric than the ones stored in the app.
2. That really is the main question, but there are other things I would like to be able to save for later menu appearances, like presets for PSE sound modules and envelopes of all sorts. Are there user preset menu places for any of these things? Could there be?
3. I don’t know if this is a related question or not: what is a .partikl file? What does it contain? I have looked in the Data and Application folders of Noatikl but have not seen any files with this extension. I am wondering how much information can be moved around in such files--the name suggests to me that they hold PSE settings or something related to PSE settings. Am I right?
4. Oh, one other thing that is a little more complicated: I am trying to implement something like a Markov chain for generating notes--where a note choice determines which of two or more pools of notes will serve as choices for the next note, and so on for some arbitrary number of notes.
Last night I tried to do this using Follow notes, and it works to an extent, but it does not seem like I can make each note decision exclusive: that is, if two Follow notes each have a 50% of playing, there is no way to ensure that at least one and only that one is chosen. The piece sounds really nice as it is, but it is not quite where I want it to be yet. Hints? It is not immediately obvious to me how, say, Pattern phrases might help.
Thank you for the very interesting apps and thank you for the price break on the iOS bundle and thank you for any light you might be able to shed on any of these questions.
I have to go make some noises now.
