[...] The processing application uses the [minim library] to visualise the data stream. Processing is an open source OOP application which can be downloaded [here]. Many thanks to John Locke for providing the Processing script to make this work possible, you can find more info of John’s work [here]. [...]
I have been trying to find a way to create this type of sound wave for ages (Joy Division style). Never able to do anything that includes an entire track and looks in any way decent.
Thought I was getting somewhere when I found your processing script using minim that created the sound wave landscape (freaking awesome by the way)… but I can’t seem to butcher the code to get it to create anything close to the images above.
I’ll understand if you can’t help, but would be awesome if you could maybe give me a few pointers.
Thanks for the script John – your work is inspirational.
For those looking to run John’s script in P3 I have fixed the script so it works. I have no idea how as I’ve never used Processing before, but happy accidents happen!
P1 or 2 will not run on the latest version of OS X.
The DXF renderer doesn’t understand points in the latest version – something to do with OpenGL. You need to make the following changes so that TRIANGLES, TRIANGLE_STRIPS or LINES are rendered instead. e.g.
Then change any “point” commands to “vertex”.
This writes the DXF in lines or triangles and stops the BeginRAW() error.
