GEN06 — Generates a function comprised of segments of cubic polynomials. Reference Orchestra Opcodes and Operators! GEN12 — Generates the log of a modified Bessel function of the second kind.
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
These modules are listed as arrays which include among other aspects, their ins, outs, and rates in entry1. Most of the input variables are k-rate variables, and allow for changing the function of the vibrato over time.
MixerSetLevel — Sets the level of a send to a buss.
JackoAudioIn — Receives an audio signal from a Jack port. This opcode will broadcast the midi events to all the machines involved in the remote concert. FLxyin — Senses the mouse cursor position in a user-defined area inside an FLpanel.
GEN42 – Generates a random distribution of discrete ranges of values. GEN40 — Generates a random distribution using a distribution histogram. Not unlike a filter with a feedback loop, the difference would be instead of affecting the sound as a filter does, the smart instrument would contain a plug or hook back to the original sound producing instrument and would send it data to notify it to change its variable values, affecting the way it is producing sound at a particular point in time.
GEN27 — Construct functions from segments of straight lines in breakpoint fashion. FLjoy FLkeyb – Experimental, no documentation exists.

An Alternative Instrument As an alternative example of longevity and maturity in instrument building, consider the input variation available on the computer music instrument shown below. GEN03 – Generates a stored function table by evaluating a polynomial. GEN10 – Generate composite waveforms made up of weighted sums of simple sinusoids.
FLupdate — Same as the FLrun opcode. GEN20 — Generates functions of caonical windows.
FLslidBnkSet — modify the values of a slider bank. Outputs are returned in the argument. FLslidBnk2Set – modify the values of a slider bank. GEN18 — Writes composite waveforms made up of pre-existing waveforms. The main differences are manul loopsegp allows for changing phase at the k-rate, looptseg contains a k-rate trigger, and loopxseg employs exponential segments between points.

GEN04 — Generates a normalizing function. All arguments must be passed cabonical the right-hand side. GEN25 — Construct functions from segments of exponential curves in breakpoint fashion. GEN18 — Writes composite waveforms made up of pre-existing waveforms.
GEN09 — Generate composite waveforms made up of weighted sums of simple sinusoids.
GEN31 — Mixes any waveform specified in an existing table. FLslidBnkGetHandle — gets the handle of last slider bank created. FLmouse — Returns the mouse position and the state of the three mouse buttons.
List of examples B. ATSbufread — reads data from and ATS data file and stores it in an internal data table of frequency, amplitude pairs. The Utility Programs Directories. On the code rrference, Csound has opcodes which allow for dynamic changes in tempo and rhythm as output values which can be utilized as control refersnce values for sound producing opcodes. Interestingly this is something most live performers are not able to do and they leave the overall sound to the sound engineer running the sound system.
JackoAudioIn — Receives an audio signal from a Jack port. Words such as interpretation, groove, feel, stretch etc. By implementing expressive features, the rendered audio can have qualities which evolve and change over time, in order to achieve a result which can help with the gestures of expression.
Refedence — Generates the log of a modified Bessel function of the second kind. This opcode will send midi events from a source machine to one destination.
In this article, the usefulness of utilizing Csound for the creation of expressive musical gestures has been shown, with emphasis on descriptions at the opcode csund.
Decodes an ambisonic B format signal.
