Midi Arpeggiator (Composition by dust)
I made a couple midi plugins you might find useful. The first plugin is a midi out plugin. Some features are a bit different than Kinemes global out midi plugin.
The first feature is that it supports an indexed device selection, so you can select what midi device you would like to output on. I have included a supplementary midi info plugin so you can get the names of your devices if needed. It is included in the example but not necessarily needed if you are just using the global IAC driver your computer comes with then that is index 0 if turned on.
The second feature is it includes 8 scales with an indexed input to play various notes out of that scale. There is major, minor, harmonic minor, harmonic major, pentatonic minor (my favorite), pentatonic major, mixolydian, and dorian scales to choose from.
To use the scales you simply select a root midi note number. If you wanted to use this in the normal fashion like Kineme's global midi out you would set the scale index to 0 and then when you send your on and off notes it will play that specific midi note number you set as diatonic root like normal. Where it gets interesting is that you can play the next step up from the root by setting index to 1,2,3 etc... up to 7. So you can do interesting things by placing this plugin inside an iterator of size 8 or just randomly select an index etc...
It also features chord playing in addition to scales. For instance if you set the root midi note number to an E octave 3 or the respective midi note number, with the minor scale selected then the plugin will play the root note then 3rd and 5th notes making a triad chord of the respective scale. Also are standard midi channel and velocity inputs.
To run the midi example patch, make sure to turn on your IAC driver and open up garage band etc... then play the example arpeggiator. The arpeggiator is based on qc's random patches which are perlin noise based, so this is not your normal arpeggiator. Its more like the composition randomly plays notes of the respective scales. If you want to sync timing, I have included a user gate where you can set 1/4 1/8 1/16 etc.... notes and there respective dotted and triplet counterparts.
Also is a little visualizer based on springs. Sort of a volumetric blobby effect ?
