Two Useful Reference Charts for TEXTURE

MPV
Midi Pitch Value
(reference pitch
for the source)
HF-S
Harmonic Field-Set
(if 'None', uses parameter
Pitch Range)
Line/NS
Linear Contour
with times for
the nodal points
M/O
'Fully Defined'
Motif/Ornament
Timing
Rhythmic Template
('Sieve')


Illustrating the Format of Note Data File Components
The 5 fields are: Times, Instr_no, (Midi)_Pitch, Vel, Dur
