THIS SOFTWARE TRANSLATES MUSICAL MIDI NOTES TO A COLOUR, CREATING A HARD AND EXACT CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THEM. ALL THE CONTROLS CAN HAVE AUTOMATION ON ABLETON LIVE.

YOU CAN USE UP TO EIGHT NOTES TO TRANSLATE.
EVERY ONE HAS A COLOR CONSTRUCTOR WITH RED, GREEN AND BLUE COMPONENTS TO MIX IN ORDER TO GET THE COLORS.
CHOOSE THE MIDI NOTE WICH WILL BE REVEIVED ON EACH ONE.

YOU HAVE AN ON-OFF SWITCH ON EACH NOTE TO ENABLE IT OR NOT TO TRANSALTE TO COLOUR.

YOU CAN PLAY WITH MOUSE OVER THE VISUAL KEYBOARD, VIA MIDI ON ABLETON OR IN STAND ALONE VERSION CHOOSING MIDI INPUT FROM THE MIDI IN MENU. AND YOU HAVE A VIRTUAL KEYBOARD WITH THE KEYS a-s-d-f-g-h-j-k. IT ALWAYS PLAYS THE SELECTED NOTES TO BE TRANSLATED TO COLOURS. CLICK “ACTIVE” TO MAKE IT ACTIVE WHEN USING ABLETON.

THERE ARE 8 PRESETS WICH CAN STORE DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS.
CLEARALL: ERASES ALL DEFAULT PRESETS
WITH CTRL+SHIFT ON THE DESIRED BUBBLE YOU CAN SAVE A NEW PRESET
WITH WRITE YOU SAVE YOUR PRESETS, WITH OPEN YOU LOAD A PRESET FILE.
YOU CAN CHOOSE PRESETS QUICKLY WITH 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 KEYS. CLIKC INSIDE THE WINDOWS FIRST ON ABLETON, OR DIRECTLY AUTOMATE THEM INSIDE ABLETON AUTOMATION KEYS.

FADE: ALLOWS COLOUR TO APPEAR SLOWLY. YOU CAN REGULATE THE FADE TIME IN GLOBAL MODE OR FOR EACH COLOUR SEPARATELY. IDEAL FOR PAD, SLOW ENVELOPE SOUNDS.

BACK ON: SOFTWARE BACKGROUND IS ALSO TRANSALTED TO COLOUR.
NOTE OFF CLEAN: WHEN THE MIDI NOTE GETS ITS END, THE COLOR ALSO FINISHES AND BACKS TO BLACK BOTTOM.

THE TRANSALTED RESULT IS SEEN ON A GLOBAL WINDOW AND IN SEPARATES WINDOWS,ONE FOR EACH NOTE. EACH WINDOW HAS THE “NOTE OFF CLEAN” OPTION SEPARATELY.

PANIC: USE IT IN CASE OF STACKED NOTES.
SUSTAIN (midi sustain cc64): WELL FOR TOUCHING A NOTE QUICKLY BUT GETTING A SUSTAINED SOUND, THUS A SUSTAINED COLOUR.

TIP ON USING PIANO ROLL TO WRITE NOTES: LEAVE A MINIMUM SPACE BETWEEN NOTES IN ORDER TO GET LINEAR RESULTS. SOME MILISECONDS IS ENOUGH. WATCH THE ABLETON EXAMPLES.

STAND ALONE VERSION HAS MIDI MENU FOR INPUT AND OUTPUT, AND ITS OWN SYNTHESIZER, WICH YOU CAN USE (BASED ON FLUYDSYNTH). YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM 128 SOUNDS FROM THE INCLUDED SOUNDFONT. LEAVE IT ON THE SAME FOLDER AS THE APP.
WINDOWS: USE EXE OR MXF FILES
MAC: USE MXF FILE

I DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME TO CONTINUE IT WITH MORE FEATURES. IF YOU ARE A PROGRAMMER ANS WANT TO DO IT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DO IT AND CONTACT ME FOR SUPPORT IF YOU NEED IT.
