Function | Mode | NDF Key MPV/S1/S2/S3 |
Description |
---|---|---|---|
SIMPLE | 5 | MPV/–/–/– | Note events are selected at random from a pitch range at a packing rate and shaped by the other parameters |
1-4 | MPV/HF-S/–/– | Note events are selected at random from a Harmonic Field/Set at a packing rate and shaped by the other parameters | |
GROUPED | 5 | MPV/–/–/– | Note events are selected at random from a pitch range in groups which have their own internal timing etc., and which repeat after packing seconds |
1-4 | MPV/HF-S/–/– | Note events are selected at random from a Harmonic Field/Set in groups which have their own internal timing etc., and which repeat after packing seconds | |
PREDECOR DECORATED POSTDECOR |
5 | MPV/NS/–/– | Note events shaped by internal grouping parameters are selected at random from a pitch range and placed on a Nodal Substructure |
1-4 | MPV/NS/HF-S/– | Note events shaped by internal grouping parameters are selected at random from a Harmonic Field/Set and placed on a Nodal Substructure | |
MOTIFS MOTIFSIN |
5 | MPV/M/–/– | Fully defined motifs are attached to pitches selected at random from a pitch range. MOTIFSIN does not have a Mode 5. |
1-4 | MPV/HF-S/M/– | Fully defined motifs are attached to pitches selected at random from a Harmonic Field/Set | |
PREORNATE ORNATE POSTORNATE |
5 | MPV/NS/O/– | Fully defined ornaments are placed on a Nodal Substructure |
1-4 | MPV/NS/HF-S/O | Fully defined ornaments are placed on a Nodal Substructure with pitches restricted to the Field definition | |
TIMED | 5 | MPV/T/–/– | Pitches randomly selected from a pitch range are fitted to a rhythmic template which repeats after skiptime seconds |
1-4 | MPV/T/HF-S/– | Pitches randomly selected from a Harmonic Field/Set are fitted to a rhythmic template which repeats after skiptime seconds | |
TGROUPED | 5 | MPV/T/–/– | The onsets of groups of events are set by a rhythmic template; size, pitches and internal timing of groups are shaped by parameter ranges |
1-4 | MPV/T/HF-S/– | The onsets of groups of events are set by a rhythmic template, and the pitches of these events are drawn from a Harmonic Field/Set | |
TMOTIFS TMOTIFSIN |
5 | MPV/T/M/– | The onsets of fully defined motifs are fitted to a rhythmic template and attached to pitches drawn at random from a pitch range |
1-4 | MPV/T/HF-S/M | The onsets of fully defined motifs are fitted to a rhythmic template and attached (at random) or constrained to a Harmonic Field/Set. TMOTIFSIN does not have a Mode 5. |
