Antescofo 0.8 Available for Max and Pd

A new version of Antescofo and AscoGraph is available for Max (OSX) and PureData (OSX, Linux):

New Features:

  • Increased robustness in machine listening

  • Increased stability and precision of tempo detection

  • AscoGraph patcher integration: AscoGraph now fully integrates Max/pd patchers through saved attributes so that upon next session, user will find AscoGraph in the same state (position, width, height) as left previously.

  • AscoGraph Electronic Score Rendering:New display modes for complex electronic scores.

    • [View -> Set Actions Track Display Mode ]: Action groups are rendered dynamically to eliminate overlaps.

    • [ View -> Display Messages as Circles ] Messages all take up minimal space on a specific line in each parent group. Hover your mouse above them to display their contents. Feature implemented by @RVirmoors

  • AscoGraph Tracks: It is now possible to filter electronic scores using Track Filtering (more on this in User Group).

  • New temporal variable : Variables with periodic updates capable of tracking its tempo and localized synchronization strategies (see Section 6.3 of Antescofo Reference Guide)

  • Added $ENERGY as internal variable, estimating normalized energy of detected events (between 0. and 1.)

  • If internet connection is available, Antescofo will check and see if a newer version is available!


  • Improved graphical editing of Curves in AscoGraph

  • Improved MusicXML import in AscoGraph.

  • Improved AscoGraph openning in PureData using Canvas paths

  • Fixed tempo reset behavior in the middle of score (using BPM keyword in score language)

  • Fixed DSP chain for Max5 (32-bit more)

  • Fixed Label parsing for string starting with numbers and proceeding with characters
