[announcement] Orchidea 0.7 out!

Dear all,

we are very happy to announce the new release of Orchidea (http://www.orch-idea.org)!
The version 0.7 (XMAS) includes the new set of objects for Orchestral Qualities, check our YouTube channel for more info: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvQqqpZmCWSIy6k4urWKjIw

Other features for this release are:

  • add extra tutorials on Max
  • added grep-like filters
  • added instrument-channel output
  • partialsfilter is in dB now
  • non-normalized output
  • compatible with Apple silicon
  • input normalization is off by default in Max to preserve intensities
    (new @normalization attribute to modify that)
  • bug fix

We would also like to mention the publication of the paper:

Carmine-Emanuele Cella
Orchidea: a comprehensive framework for target-based computer-assisted dynamic orchestration

for the Journal Of New Music Research: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09298215.2022.2150650?fbclid=IwAR3L8Mvuu8YCgbKt6vkmKalChuyioyB2-nqQtMAcGk-tf4C7riMCzTG1-dQ
