Hi all,
We are pleased to announce that version 1.9 of our generative music software Nodal has been released.

If you're not familiar with Nodal, its a standalone sequencer that allows you to create complex musical patterns based on the concept of a network of nodes (musical events) connected together by edges (transitions between events). The edge length controls timing information. You create the network interactively and assign any number of virtual players, who travel the network to create the composition. Nodes can feedback on each other, which means even very simple networks can generate complex musical patterns.

Nodal works with all major DAWs and MIDI synths, and runs on Mac OS and Windows. A license costs US$30 and a free 30 day trial version is available. A single licence allows you to run both Mac and Windows copies simultaneously.

You can download the software and find out more from our web site: http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~cema/nodal/index.html

Regards,

Jon.

If your plugin is a C++ creation, please don't say so.
If it is, pop round Marcos, he has just bought you a Mac to port it.

I remember checking this out. Interesting concept. Need to check it out again. :D

One thing on the license though: It says $30 gets you "free upgrades up until the next major version (that is, all 1.x versions)". Since it's now v1.9 that's probably not that much. Or is this reflected in the price already?

Yes, the price includes any upgrades until version 2. Anyone who purchased the first version in 2007 has been receiving free upgrades for the last 6 years.

For version 2 we will offer an upgrade option that will be less than the cost of a new license, so if you purchase a 1.9 license you won't need to purchase a new full license, but you will need to pay if you want the upgrade.

I've just bought 1.9. It seems a little unfair to charge for an upgrade to 2.0 if those who bought previous versions have been receiving free upgrades for the last six years.

I expect there will be further upgrades before version 2 is released. These will be free for any current users. I appreciate that the number of updates will be far less than for someone who purchased a licence in 2007, but we chose to reward early supporters while the software matured - so if you buy a license for the current version you're getting a mature application that has had many new features added since 2007 (and still for the same price).

We're a university, not a commercial developer, and all the money that comes in from licenses goes back into further developing the application, so we rely on people purchasing a license to support further releases and improvements.
Regards,

Jon

Just saw this and thought it was a pretty cool way to use nodal for creating sounds.
