To create a (stereo) synthesized pad similar to a flute -- yet strange -- using granular synthesis.
Again I'm using
diskgrain for the synthesis, this time with a new idea: to create a stereo pad by slight variation of the grain size of the right and left channels. This should smooth out the 'bumps' and create an interesting stereo texture.

To develop a prototype strategy for (highly flexible) sound morphing using granular synthesis.
My first attempt makes use of
diskgrain. Ideally, there is a smoother way to transition between the sounds than I have chosen here (probably by altering the density of the grains). However, I spent most of the evening learning to make the opcode work and how to set the parameters properly.

I recently published a new piece:
This is a 16 minute piece, but there are two different versions: "Herald of Water" and "Herald of Air". They start slow but build, so be careful with volume based on the level at the beginning. As usual, you can download high quality 320kpbs MP3 files as well as the blue project (and the Csound code generated from blue). Hope you enjoy it/them.
Made with Csound and blue.

Greetings, everyone. I've been away from Csound for a while.
I'd like to say I'm returning; but to return, I'd have to be back where I started.
Here's what happened.

I'm New to here. heard about CSound from an Interview with BT. got interested about this new concept and I am here.
Hope to do something with CSound.

This beta contains alot of the items that I have been releaseing on the blog. The tracker needs some work before I call it 1.0.
I am not realy thrilled with sourceforge at the moment and I do plan on releasing some of the small programs as lpgl or something over at

I reprinted my charting article and it seems to do a format that is simular to the way the csounds journal is published i.e. with footnote numbers exc,. It is also much better than blogger when it comes to posting source code so you do not have to worry about loosing all the spaces when you cut and paste. plus if the articles are written there it would be up to the author to recieve the advertising to the article or not. some of us are not worrying about tenure exc. Pictures also look like they are easy to do..

someday maybe I can be talked into writing a full article instead of just releasing little bits. I have been looking at different graphing utilities including matplotlib and the newly released pyqtshell (using matplotlib)for the purpose of graphing out columns of csound spreadsheet data. For the most part it these are not that usefull unless you want to generate a wave of some kind and then draw the picture.

This is the same as my limited-run CD-R release, now a NetNewMusic netlabel release:
Electronic drone music in just intonation, made between 2005 and 2008 using Csound. Within the realm of ambient music, but intended for listening with focussed attention. For more information, see http://mysterybear.net.

I noticed the reference to this in this other thread, and I think I misread the "cross-platform" comment. Is it only "cross-Intel/PPC Mac" at the moment? I downloaded the alpha [I couldn't find the announced beta anywhere], and although sources seem to be there, they're in a very unfamiliar directory structure (to a Linux-oriented person), so I assume it's directed only to the Mac.

Just a note, if anyone is interested, that I've improved (I think!) the "Rotor Organ" I developed from Hans Mikelson's original code.
I've edited the original blog post, so you can find the code and other details there.

I have posted my notes from the first time that I compiled Csound 5.09 on Mac OS X "Leopard". Normally, most users should install one of the pre-built binary packages from Sourceforge. But there are some good reasons for building Csound yourself, and in particular on Leopard at the current time (Nov. 2008) because the pre-built binaries are built on 10.4 "Tiger" (which mostly work but see below).

You can use the automated CSound Orchestra in Tune Smithy to convert a midi file to an audio file directly, or play CSound instruments in real time. You can do this with up to sixteen different CSound instruments simultaneously (one instrument for each Midi channel), and set the stereo pan position for each instrument individually just as for Midi. It's Windows software.

I'm working with KxStudio (Kubuntu10.04), Csound and Blue.
I have all my samples in SSDIR and would like to have SADIR with all these samples analyzed by LPANAL, HETRO and all the other analyzing utilities and have them ready to try them out while looping in Blue. Instead of converting them all hand by hand i was looking for a little script that would analyze all the samples at once. So i asked around and now i have i little bash-script that will do the trick.
Here they are.
The bash-script for PVANAL:

Yep, I got the message - can't get into cSound because I don't have Python 2.5. After installing it. Being new to cSound and fooling around in Vista, I'm stuck.
I'm thinking of joining a monastery, and by power of prayer, devise a solution. Or, find a way of getting onto one of the forums, or fori?
