Device Overview

Name/Version: Algae MIDI 1.0
Author: stringtapper  
Description: Algae MIDI is the algorithmic engine from the Algae algorithmic polysynth only without the synth! Just put it on a MIDI track in front of your favorite instrument and start Live's transport to play. You can either use the algorithmic engine or choose MIDI input which lets you either choose a static pitch collection with the keyboard or you can play dynamically through your controller or a midi clip. Set the "Center" and "Range" dials as the X and Y on an XY controller for some fun.

**This version has a known issue where MIDI mode will send out a continuous note C2 when it isn't getting any input. I'm working on it**

MIDI "mountain" code from Katsuhiro Chiba's "Sev."
Rest probability algorithm from the M4L MIDI effect "Max PolyBeat."

Thanks for this. Working in 9.0.6. I got rid of the repeating C2 by putting a change object before your noteout.

Actually, ahem, that didn't work because it strips the noteoffs - oops! The other thing that worked, but is not ideal is sel 36 to filter out C2 altogether?not elegant. Will work on it. It's a great device for playing live and creating autoaccompaniment.

one of the most useful random note generators and one of my most used devices. thanks a lot!!! it only loses all settings (or maybe just the midi settings...?) when i reopen a project. anyway, keep it up ma man :)
