Postby mucoder; Sun Mar 20, 2011 5:40 pm mucoder news: tonespace 2 final release available (v2.0.361)

The final version of tonespace 2 is now available for download (v2.0.361)

Highlights of new features added since the v2.0.294 beta
  • triggering of chords via midi input as in tonespace 1.0
  • new chord fitting algorithm that fits chords to the current scale/key
  • completely overhauled chord voicings (now up to 25 different ones)
  • new chord filter parameter
  • new chord display
  • you can now click & hold a cell which then keeps playing

Release notes
  • fixed: updated manual with information on features added since public beta 2.0.294
  • new: added pdf manual version
  • fixed: mode 'Midi triggers note (modulated)' transposed some notes an octave too low
  • fixed: some slight factory preset tweaks
  • new: added 'Monads' chord filter option, making it possible to use the chord fitting assist modes also with single notes
  • fixed: slow startup of the tonespace UI on OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • fixed: Logic revalidating tonespace AU component every time during start up
  • fixed: 'none' chord displayed in balzano 3-shape
  • fixed: note was not released when mouse up on disabled cell
  • fixed: hold notes until next click did not work as users expected
  • fixed: crash in Ableton Live on Windows when closing VST gui while tonespace help/about dialog still visible
  • new: 'trigger' parameter replaces the 'on midi' parameter and controls when and how cells are triggered (either by mouse and/or by incoming midi notes)
  • new: midi triggering offers several variants, including triggering on mouse clicking, mouse hovering or by incoming midi note as in tonespace 1.0
  • new: triggering by midi notes can optionally transpose/modulate incoming midi notes from CMajor into the selected scale/key (allows to play 'white keys only' and still generate chords that are in key)
  • new: 'on click' parameter replaces the 'mouse' parameter and controls whether chords are released on mouse-up or held until next click
  • new: 'assist' parameter offers new chord assist modes, including a mode for fitting chords to a scale/key instead of to the space.
  • new: with chord fitting to scale/key: when more than one chord is possible you can either take the best one, cycle through all, or pick a random one for an arpeggio-like effect
  • new: 'chord filter' parameter allows to restrict the types of chords that are used by chord assist algorithms. Select between 2, 3 and 4 note-chords. This also reduces the number of chord assist parameter modes, as they longer have to select the chord size
  • new: 'voicing' parameter has been extended with new inversion types and open/close modes. The old open/open+/open++ modes are now called spread/spread+/spread++
  • new: the currently hovered and/or clicked root cell is now also higlighted, so you always know where you are in the grid, even when using chord voicings with a different root note
  • new: last played and estimated next chord names are displayed

as before, tonespace 2 is free as in beer and available for windows, mac and linux

Mucoder's efforts are highly valued and this release provides many requested features. It is fascinating and helps me understand chord and scale relationships in an audio/visual manner. Great stuff. Thank you.
