Scripting evolving pitches

0 votes

I have been using a sound I called Tune for awhile and would like to understand the script better so I can edit it to have a slowly changing tonality rather than using the same pitches to trigger it all the time.

Can I write that in the Script of the "Follow" sound?

The AnalysisFilter used as the pitch detector can't be continuously altered while it is playing, but you could create new instantiations based on different arrays of pitch classes at different times in the Script. Better yet, you could make several copies of the Tuner, each with a different set of pitch classes, and put those copies into a Multigrid track so you could swtich between them at will.

Let us know if you'd like any tips or guidance on one of these approaches.
