new player and midi apes

ok new versions and docs on the site, i'll get **my man** to update the
lynx but until then...

http://www.forwind.net/pixelcorps/player2.ape
http://www.forwind.net/pixelcorps/miditrace.ape
http://www.forwind.net/pixelcorps/saver.ape
http://www.forwind.net/pixelcorps/documentation.txt

i've rewritten the core of the avi player in mmx assembler/////

the midi plugin lets you control video playback with a drum machine or what have you. i use it with a live band who have their drummer mic'ed and fed into a midi generator...

the midi player works with a bit of a hack... it overwrites one channel of vis data to communicate. anyone know a better way... unconed?

enjoy.

hmm...not sure if I quite understand you. If you're talking about MIDI input for AVS, do you use the actual sound output to the speakers, pre-assumed waves for different patches, or the patches stored on the computer for input? The last is probably best - raw output would include anything else running (internet connection, movies, etc.), assumed waves would never be very correct, but the default patches would always get you the correct sound; you'd just have to run a second MIDI processor...hey, why didn't I think of that before? ...

you obviously haven't thought this out very well. MIDI is a way of triggering instruments. it doesn't actually involve sound, waves, or patches... its a triggering protocol. the sound comes from the instruments. here i'm turning AVS into a 'visual instrument' that makes pictures instead of sounds. So you can get note 41 of channel 0 (say) to reverse the direction of a movie instead of (or as well as) making a sound with your sampler.

if i wanted to trigger avs with the sound made by some MIDI instruments I wouldn't need any special software would I? just some cables

You didn't read my right. I meant the patches the MIDI triggers (IDF files/wavetables). And I'm talking about files on a drive, not external instruments. The ideal solution is to capture the sound the MIDI file outputs, then use that sound for AVS input (you might temporarily buffer it to a seperate file, or something like that).

Atero: it's not about using MIDI music as AVS input, it's about using MIDI to send signals and triggers to AVS, as far as I can see.
