Any upcoming videos, or are there videos available already, that I might have missed?

Videos would be wicked. Just downloaded the beta, (haven't installed yet). Really don't have a danny what this does, other than allow for sophisticated manipulation of midi data, with an emphasis on modularity and coding. A whole set of tutorials, that explains what's possible, going from basic, intermediary through to advanced would be really helpful.

Wondering if Temper is useful in combination with Architect
http://www.angryredplanet.com/temper/index.html
A midi oriented sequencer and DAW.
Free! Only 32 bit.

Edit: I believe it is standalone and VST and can host VST's.

Wow, Temper is free now. I remember looking at that years ago and thinking it was ace.

Temper, the only Daw I fell in love with :(

Of course wouldn’t you know that my copy of “Step by Step: Adventures in Sequencing with Max/MSP” arrives the very same day that the Architect public beta is finally released. :dog:

All the excitement and enthusiasm is contagious.
Got the bug. Now I need to get the cure.

For me I really need preset to get started and randomizers to get the variations.
Randomizers in the Absynth tradition then I check out the knobs and sliders
to experiment.

Likely will get the cure soon, before the price goes up.

Hallo, I'm a newbie to this. I have a simple question. How do I connect a synth plugin in the mixer with a midi sequencer like for example the step sequencer? Thank you!

  1. Go to the mixer view and add a new track
  2. Drop the plugin you want to use onto the new track
  3. Go to the graph view and insert the type of sequencer you want (From the MIDI Source category)
  4. Insert a MIDI output module (From the Output category)
  5. Connect the sequencer to the MIDI out module
  6. Go to the properties of the MIDI out module and select the track that has your plugin on it as the destination

Thank you VERY much, Delta Sign! The Midi Output module part was not clear to me. Instead I thought I could route the sequencer directly to the track. Now it works! :party:

That's exactly right! I also need examples and templates to understand such an exciting and complex program!

Colin, can you provide some templates for download in a short time?

For example, I can't find a way to integrate and manipulate external Midi files (importing was no problem)?

is eyes almost fell out of their sockets when i showed him what the sequencers could do.
