I thought it would be good to have a 'function of the week', where we pick a function to look at in detail, and how it fits with other functions. If you'd like to understand a Tidal function more, or share your experiments with it, then please add your nomination below!
FOTW#2 - swingBy
weave (and variations) would be nice
ur -- though I do see that it's a topic in the coming weeks.
would also love to understand
cool, this thread brought me to the list https://tidalcycles.org/index.php/All_the_functions
an example from there
d1 $ every 4 (zoom (0.25, 0.75)) $ sound "bd*2 hh*3 [sn bd]*2 drum"
and a flip by me
d1 $ every 7 (zoom (0.15, 0.95)) $ loopAt 2 $ chop 3 $ sound "break:18"
could even add something like this...
d2 $ s "808cy:3*4" # gain (range 0.6 0.8 rand)
wchoose [("lindenmayer", 0.3), ("runMarkov", 42)]
(I think I stated the preference quite clearly.)
i also vote for
Bring back FOTW pls!!
Ok will have a think! Any new nominations?
while? There was some talk about it recently, and it seems versatile enough for a closer look
when do peak my interest.
outside are not obvious, but are so powerful
Did we not cover
while in the course around binary patterns? If not that's a definite.
outside also excellent suggestions. I might flip a coin. It might have to be after the 25th now but will be before the new year! We should also do a general q+a session
Oh and I can't remember what
when does but will look into that too!
When offers a conditional possibilities:
Only when the given test function returns
True the given pattern transformation is applied. The test function will be called with the current cycle as a number.
d1 $ when ((elem '4').show) (striate 4) $ sound "hh hc"
It would be interesting to learn what conditions could be inserted instead of
