[ANNOUNCE] DJster Autobus

Post by LiveScore » Thu Mar 29, 2012 7:35 pm

DJster Autobus - Real-time pitch and rhythm generator
DJster Autobus is based on Clarence Barlow’s legacy real-time pitch and rhythm generator, originally running on the Atari ST computer. The device has 12 parameters which control various musical textures that encompass a wide range from tonal to atonal and from rhythmic to arhythmic structures, with strong allusions to historical and ethnic styles. The device reads text files containing the definitions of scales and meters and also opens .scl files from the scala library with well over 4000 different scales. The device improvises according to probability distributions – based on theoretical research performed by Barlow in the 1970?s – and uses a sound font player and/or a sampler for microtonal playback. Documentation for the original program is available at http://www.musikwissenschaft.uni-mainz.de/Autobusk/

I see this needs Max 6 (which I haven't installed yet). I thought Max for Live wasn't playing nicely with 6 yet? Will installing Max 6 break any of my existing Max for Live tools?

I haven't experienced problems with the current version of Live. My educated guess is that it won't break your existing tools; and you can always go back to Max 5, simply by changing the preferences.
