Revision History - v7.30
Daqarta v7.30 - 5 April 2013
Manual Check for Updates option added to the Help menu, which opens your browser at the version check page on the Daqarta site and shows your version and the latest version, with links to Free Download and Revision History if different.
Posn?U update check macro added to Mouse and Miscellaneous Position Macros to allow creation of custom update checks.
Comparing Noise Distributions Help topic and GausWhit.GEN Generator setup extended to include Gaussian vs. Binary noise comparisons.
New GlossyTracks.DQM MIDI DaqMusiq setup plays over 4 billion unique tracks of adjustable duration, uses list-based random Scale and instrument selection, plus new non-uniform random distributions for Tempo selection for each track.
MIDI expressions now evaluated with 64-bit fixed-point math before assignment. Previously, integer variables used integer math, such that UA=UB/UC*UD did not give the same result as UA=UB*UD/UC.
MIDI expressions now support unary absolute value, such as UA=|UA.
New MIDI buffer file load commands allow Changes scripts to load MIDI buffers or macro buffers with lists of values from simple text files. Useful for randomly selecting from a user-defined list of scales, instruments, or random seeds, for example.
MIDI random values now include new uniform options: ?(min,max) rounds limits to integers, as well as the random result. ?f(min,max) maintains full 64-bit fixed-point real resolution for subsequent expression evaluation. Alternative pseudo-random generator ?R(min,max) uses rounded integers, and ?r(min,max) maintains full real resolution.
Non-uniform real MIDI random value distributions now available: ?2(min,max) triangular, ?4() and ?8() semi-Gaussian, ?G() Gaussian, and ?q() square-law. Low-biased or high-biased versions (with the peak at min or max instead of center default) are available by following the type character with 'L' or 'H', as in ?2L(min,max)
MIDI Scales List now includes 22 chords for use as scales, appearing at the end of the list.
MIDI Changes script Scale set command now includes Si option to select based on index number (see above). Allows random selection from a range of related scales, as in Si1=?(93,95) to select one of 3 Eskimo scales for Voice 1.
MIDI Output Display now allows up to 4 separate displays: the prior Left oL and Right oR, plus new lower left ol and lower right or below them.
MIDI Changes script command X0=1 now toggles Pitch-to-MIDI off and back on, allowing a performance to restart itself. This allows a setup which uses random parameters on each start to play an unending series of different performances.
Unsigned fixed-point MIDI User Variables Ua-Uz and Qa-Qz now support hexadecimal format for the integer portion, as in Ua=h1234.
For direct access of MIDI Changes script buffers, you can now use carets to separate the index from subsequent terms in an expression, as in UA=Bb12.<196>*UB+UC. Without the carets, the index would be 196*UB+UC.
Bug Fix: Macro variables formatted using exponential or scientific notation for string variable display in macro messages, custom meters, log files, etc, did not display zero properly. Also, integer-only variables such as U0-U9 and UA-UZ did not show specified decimal places in exponential or scientific notation.
Bug Fix: MIDI Changes Script Expressions did not combine terms properly under certain conditions.
Bug Fix: MIDI computer keyboard Key State read-only variables Ka through Kz could return wrong values under certain conditions.
