WhiteMute.GEN Setup File - Uniform Random Number Source

WhiteMute.GEN is simply a White Noise source with the Wave output muted in the Generator Volume Slider dialog (F9 key). Even though the generated noise doesn't go to the sound card DAC to create actual sound, it is still available within Daqarta as a high-speed stream of uniform random values.

These random values can be read into Macro Arrays (Buf0-Buf7) and used as a basis for other calculations. (Note, however, that the number range is only 2^16, or from +32767 to -32768. For other ranges (up to 2^64) you can use the rnd() or rand() Macro Math Functions with arbitrary limits.)

WhiteMute.GEN is used by the Arbitrary Random Distribution Mini-App as a source with uniform (flat) amplitude distribution, for comparison with the arbitrary distribution (such as Gaussian) that the mini-app creates.

WhiteMute.GEN can also be used to replace the internal uniform random source used by DaqMusiq, then use Spectrum Curves to control the "brightness" or "darkness" of the generated music based on the relative distribution of high (bright) and low (dark) frequencies used by the Pitch Tracker. You can then use that with any .DQM MIDI setup that would normally use the internal uniform source.

Note that for Windows Vista or later the above technique will require the workaround discussed in the Vista/7/8/10/11 and DaqMusiq subtopic under Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 / 11 Issues in the Troubleshooting section.
