It's #Caturday and Katz can have a little bath tub
Working on adding a `Stream` object to Mellite.
Unlike `Pattern` which is an immutable program yielding a stream in memory, now you can create streams that maintain their state in the workspace. E.g., you can have counters or random walks or more complex programs that always resume where you left them. Think of a `drunk` object in Pd/Max, only that if you open your patcher again, it resumes from its last position. I think it will be a very interesting composition element for installations.
I'm adding a Histogram UGen to FScape; such a simple mechanism, just throw stuff into buckets and count… I will need this to look at the distribution of spectral features of a microphone signal.
Sometimes I wish I had more input on what building blocks other people would need, but I guess that's ok.
The plot shows a 17-bin histogram fed with a sine oscillator, and the histogram being flushed every ten steps.
In terms of their change, they resemble the algorithmic; changes happen both discrete (separated) and under discretion (tacit). E.g. "the hotel room, now dorm room, now outside field exposed to rain." It is not clear whether this is an essential property of the dream, or it belongs to the mode of their recall, which is challenged with verbalisation, but there are cases that indicate the essential: "I notice the fundamental error – the room; I must have confused it, it unnoticably changed."
#Mellite introductory tutorial on "PaulStretch" done - https://www.sciss.de/mellite/tut_mellite_paulstretch.html - let me know what you think.
#Mellite 2.42.0 is published now. The main work was on the code editor, fixing bugs and making the keyboard shortcuts work correctly on macOS. Also desktop integration on macOS has been improved, so give the new version a spin especially if working on a Mac. The code editor font is now configurable, too.
I added an excerpt of room microphone recording: https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/388082/735705
Experimenting with technique to make relief more visible. #Mäanderungen
#Mellite 2.41.0 is published now. It continues the work on the Action and Control objects, used to define algorithmic couplings (“glue”) between various objects in Mellite.
Support for closures has been added, allowing to map and flatMap options and sequences of expressions. Some elements changed, such as the Act type in action and control programs, which means that programs that make use of it are not compatible with the way preliminary support had been in v2.40.0. A new tutorial will follow.
