PatternsX

2.1
15 April 2010

Screensaver featuring melodic shapes and patterns.

Overview

Patterns X is the software equivalent to the much acclaimed book "Patterns For Jazz" by Jerry Coker et al. An infinite number of melodic shapes and patterns are created for use as practice materials or compositional needs.

Categories include: Random Symmetric Patterns, PreSet Patterns, Random modal shapes, Random scaler shapes, Symmetric Modal/Scaler sequences, and Preset Modal/Scaler sequences. There are options for manipulation of the results by transposition, and inversion of interval direction and reversal of melodic direction, all of which yield some interesting a beautiful results.

What's new in PatternsX

Version 2.1:
  • App is now Universal Binary.
  • Fixed MIDI save files so that tempo and note durations are identical to how the loops play in the app.
  • Fixed tempo setting to be accurate in real time.
  • Reduced the price for the full version.

Crashes on startup every time.... 10.3.8 Ah i see here i have to MANUALLY instal a font into my system for it to work. Well it does work with the font installed. But why can't the app instal it it's self? And moreover, why does it even require said font? If it's for the staff symbols, just make graphics and display them that way. Very unprofessional setup. But the app it's self is great.

If that last comment was sarcastic, then I'm sorry. The "Aloisen New" font included with the download is a zero-K file (not recognized as a font by OSX). Besides this, and the use of ALL CAPS for buttons, and the fact that the CREATE button does nothing ... it looks like a very nice piece of software -- it just doesn't *sound* like it yet! Keep up the good work! Will check back when you have another version.
