Software Description

ArtSong Lite is a large and highlyconfigurable musical building-block based algorithmic music composition framework designed for composers, experimental musicians, and advanced music hobbyists. Designed as a general-purpose composition framework, ArtSong is 'intended' to be devoid of any particular musical style; an electronic-procedural manuscript paper that you can apply to any specific composition problem.

Key Features of ArtSong 6 Lite:

  • Over 30 algorithm plugins including 8 distribution functions, chaos attractors, image to music, text to music, meter, chord progression generaters,
  • Controller components supporting any MIDI channel-voice message can be associated with specific tracks,
  • Unlimited tracks and algorithms per project,
  • Setup and directly compose an entire score at once or compose in real-time while playing,
  • Tonal compositions can set a pitch-generation probability for each individual pitch-class for adding varying degrees of chromaticity to tonal compositions.
  • Scale and Chord resources can be defined and applied as defined over the full 1- to 10-octave MIDI pitch range. Chords defined within a 1-octave range will be repeated each octave, chords defined over a 2-octave range will be applied every two octaves, etc.
  • A Single-Note Editor has been added for adding-editing of individual note events.
  • Multiple Time Signatures
  • Multilevel Undo/Redo
  • Save projects as MIDI, ArtSong Projects, or simple CSound score files,
  • ArtSong projects,
  • Build custom libraries of data patterns, presets, and project templates for reuse .

ArtSong Lite does not include the Basic and Pascal scripting capabilities of the full version of ArtSong.
