Somax2 version 2.4.1 is released.
This version is fully operational with a sophisticated GUI that lets you create co-creative agents and
make them interact / improvise with the external world and between themselves.
As promised to many, we have prepared a set to help you jump (almost) immediately to real-life, rich interactions with Somax2, with ready-made players and music corpuses, carefully adjusted parameter initializations, and a single 10 steps tutorial.
Rich musical corpuses (midi and audio) have been built from great masters (modern, contemporary, jazz etc.) so you may readily experiment rich interaction, before building your own corpuses.
You can first get a precise idea of what to expect from this set by watching first the demo videos at :
To get going, go to this repository, and download all the content to your machine, then follow the readme file instructions (or install first Somax2 2.4.1 from the forum page)
Have fun, all best
