Software Description

TEXTURE generates musical information, by stochastic means, in two differents ways. The first one to be interpreted by a MIDI device and the other to be interpreted by TRender, a sofware synthesizer included with the package.

Several probability control parameters are involved in the musical data generation process. By default events will have the same probability to appear, in other words values follow a uniform probability distribution, but this process could be controlled by user-defined distributions.

Events may be masked by speciying its lower and higher limit, time-variable functions perform this task.

The most interisting thing in TEXTURE 3.0, is the posibility of saving every setting, including functions and distributions drawings, in banks. This bank could also be linked, sequencially or simultaneously by a simle script. Think TEXTURE 3.0 as having one or more musician with a single or more sets of instructions.

TEXTURE has most of all sequencer capabilities: record, play and edit MIDI events.

You may record material from an external MIDI device or you may gather generated musical information as MIDI data by TEXTURE built-in sequencer.

Many edition actions are available:
Copy
Cut
Paste
Delete
Insert
Quantize
Length
Transpose
Velocity
Slide

Texture 2.5 for Windows 3.1

Greetings All,
I am not sure if this has been discussed, but I had an earlier version of Texture 2.5 for Windows 3.1 and I am trying to find a way to convert the files. The version of Texture I have uses extensions like .ptn and .sng, there is not a general MIDI file save option. I tried dowloading Texture 3.0, but it will not read my files. Help!!!!! Can anyone help me.

Thanks

Re: Texture 2.5 for Windows 3.1

uhh, Nate..there is INDEED a way to save your Texture files as midi files..what you have to do first is to go into LINK MODE..(press the tab button after you've finished all of your patterns)..then arrange the song the way you want it..save it as a song..& lastly..save it as a midi song..(if you just want ALL of the patterns in various sequences..press 0..if you want to save it the way you have it arranged..press 1..& there you have it..you can THEN transfer it to Cakewalk, Sonar, Pro-Tools..whatever..i hope this helps..& i'd still like to know if you STILL have Texture 2.5..Peace..& God bless..

Re: Texture 2.5 for Windows 3.1

Hello,

I'm still using texture along with my 286 computer. I can send you a copy of the disk you need to convert your files. Give me a month to
send files, my family is relocating to another
state and my studio is packed up.

Thank You,

Curtis

Texture on XP

I have Texture 4.25 installed on xp, but cannot get it to work. I don't get the function keys at the bottom and cannot record or play. Thanks!

Texture v4.25 on Windows XP!

You need to install "Dosbox .072" ..... for more info lookup all posts by "srecko" on the dosbox site, and you should get an understanding from there.

I have TX running fine on a Laptop, (very stable) and the only thing I have yet to fix is "Midi in". This has not been an issue for me really as I am just editing old, and also downloading midi files.

I do however also run Texture "Live" which is just perfect for my needs. You might want to investigate "Borlands Superkey" which is a DOS macro TSR that makes texture even easier to operate.

texture

as a top producer in my industry, i would say that texture has been one of the most powerful writing tools i have ever used. if there is an updated version , get it !

texture

This program is totally AWESOME!! I've been waiting years to find a program that gives you so much control over randomized events! Currently I'm using texture to run Generator (virtual analog software synth) with
stunning results! Thank you Luis!!!!

Is this an updated version of Texture by Roger Powell version 3 that was released by Magnetic Music about ten years ago? If so, not only do I still use this program but even by today's standards, this is a powerfull sequencing tool. Very similar to a multi-track recorder and a program that you can get a lot done in a hurry with.

My question exactly.I was introduced to Texture back in '88 through a songwriter friend,and started using it myself.I did get Texture 4 a few years back,and was curious about updates.
Can anyone help?

To whom it may concern:
www.magneticmusic.com or .org or .net will call up the Texture/magnetic music home page.
The word is, Slim Heilpern has been slowly working on the sequencing application so it can be run native on today's PC.... Today meaning, a la' 2004 and beyond.
Keeping my Fingers crossed.
