I'm new to Tidal (and Haskell) so this may be a dumb question, but I can't figure out how I can extract a part of a sound from a stack. That is, if I am playing a stack of say, 4 different, complex patterns, and a sound emerges from that stack which I really like and want to play more with - then how can I extract the slice of the cycle that is producing that sound from the stack? I'll try to explain this better below:
if I am playing this:
d4 $ stack [
let's say these combined sounds create a cool little sound snippet somewhere in the middle of the cycle - is there any way I can grab this snippet out to play with it more on its own?
like is there some function like this that I could use -->
d4 $ extract (0.2 0.3) $ stack [
in theory, this would take the sound in this stack from 2/10 of the cycle to 3/10 of the cycle and play just that snippet in a complete cycle on its own (and then effects could be applied, etc.).
appreciate any help,
I don't understand the behavior of chop.
If you chop a snare sound:
d2 $ chop 8 $ sound "sn:7"
It sounds like 8 short snare hits, as if the original sound had been
chopped into 8 pieces.
But if you shop the gretsch ride cymbal, like so:
d2 $ chop 8 $ sound "gretsch:19"
There's hardly any difference.
Then if you experiment by increasing the chop number like so:
d2 $ chop 128 $ sound "gretsch:19"
The effect is a truncation, and a change of timbre.
Why don't we get the expected chopping effect here? How can we achieve it?
Thanks in advance,
Hi all, I am trying to install Tidal in my Spacemacs set up. Following
the instructions related to emacs here
https://tidalcycles.org/getting_started.html#emacs couldn't make it
working. It's a bit complicated since Spacemacs suppose to come with
Haskell layer already.
Anyone has managed to installed it properly?
