General Board / Graphic Data entry doesnt seem to work
« Last post by OHT on May 16, 2023, 01:53:33 PM »
hi :)

is anyone else experiencing troubles with Graphic Data entry?

the window opens and im able to draw on the frequency display but the lower half of the sound view (play, pause, stop, wave, spectrum etc... and most importantly output data) are not reacting and therefore im unabled to use this function.

any idea how to fix this?

cheers

Announce / Email address for Soundshaper
« Last post by Robert Fraser on May 10, 2023, 11:17:19 AM »
Following my web host's decision to charge for email, I am going to delete this email address:
   rob@ensemble-software.net  (or mail@ensemble-software.net / *@ensemble-software.net)
I'll make this change as soon as I've archived existing emails and changed links on the website, etc.

The replacement email address (which already exists) is:
   ensemble-software@hotmail.com

I also have an email address at soundshaper.net which will be deleted today.

Please note that the domains themselves are unaffected: ensemble-software.net and soundshaper.net

Robert

Hi Otis,
I'm pretty sure  that they are PC only, sadly as Grainmill is fun.
I have an old version if Win7 running on VMware that ~can~ run it, but to go there & fiddle around sucks some of the joy out.

I know I shouldn't really be saying this in the CDP forum, but other granular apps are available, especially given your very tight time constraints.

Meanwhile, there are many granular functions within the CDP system. MODIFY SAUSAGE & MODIFY BRASSAGE might suit you.

Have a look through this :

Glad you got this working, but in general there can be a problem with some sound sources not having the "right" kind of header for CDP. Archer Endrich puts it like this:
"One problem that you may encounter is CDP not recognising an input soundfile when it has been made by some other software. This can be caused by non-standard anomalies in the wav header of the soundfile made by the other software. The problem can be rectified by making a CDP copy of this sound with CDP's COPYSFX. This can be run from the Command Line (copysfx infile.wav outfile.wav and see Usage for the various options), or via Soundshaper : Menu Edit/Mix > SF UTILS > COPY. (COPYSFX is not available in a Soundloom menu.) "

As Simon suggested, run sfprops on the source file and see what it says about the header.  Normally CDP will retain the type (output=input), so I'm guessing the problem would have been with the source sound.

In Soundshaper I have a default set of values for the fracture envelope:
;time     t    l    t     l      t     l      t     l      t      l        t      l       t    l
0.00       0.0 0  0.15 0.3  0.3 0.5  0.5 1.0   0.65 0.5   0.80 0.3   1.0 0
8.00      0.0 0  0.15 0.3  0.3 0.5  0.5 1.0   0.65 0.5   0.80 0.3   1.0 0

The first value is the time within the soundfile for the envelope to begin. (As you can see, both lines have the same values: not very adventurous!)
You then need 7 pairs of time-within-the envelope, and level-for-that-time, labelled t and l above. So we have an envelope stretched over 1" starting and ending at level 0 (they must start at 0), rising to full level 1/2-way (t 0.5, l 1.0), then decaying again. I would guess that if the envelope was spread out so that the last t overlaps the time value on the next line, it would be rejected, but I don't know.
Anyway, the above works, even if a bit basic. I'm sure you'll be able to make more interesting changes!
(BTW, I can't guarantee the comment line ;time etc. I just put it here to show the structure of the file)

Hi Otis,
Try running your new output file through SFPROPS & see what it reports.

Does the file play in any other appication?

I'm assuming your soundcard/device can handle & is configured for muti-channel outputs & you've tested all that.

+
Are you sure that you must use the CDP system for this?
You are in a very complicated area that  will suck time hugely just to run through permutations of  a single event.

There are quite a number of other sound diffusion apps around these days that you might use given your tight time schedule.
