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.
