But what else? How do I make an eb and flow? How do I arrange for more progression? what else can I do to make it just a touch more phrase oriented?
What else can be done to make it more beat oriented?
I was thinking these same questions, sort of a "predictable chaos" type of structure (yes, an oxymoron)
Hi, I missed a lot of these comments because I was in Spain for a week or so. Thanks for the bump TD.
To program for a little more ebb and flow, or to make it a little more diverse you could use Lives follow actions. Follow actions obviously have quite a few conditionals to make use of. Follow actions have two conditionals running at the same time - so you could have a conditional of 'go to the next clip which will change key from Gm to Dm' may have a potential of 1 against a 'stay right here' action potential of 10.
Examples of using follow actions might be : program changes, key changes, changing 'likelyhood' values within the rack(using an envelope)
essentially the clips would contain major structural modulations to the peice in the way that you might consider an 'arrangement', although it would still be semi-random you would know that you had a set of clips which ran through a wider palette than would otherwise be possible.
on a different, but related subject ...
my server bandwidth went through the roof last month because of this thread and the files attached ! I think I'll have to up it from the current 4gig threshold
