OM Time Pack

Hi everyone, I’ve read Paul Nauert’s text on his OM Time Pack. The documentation is great. I’ve also read a lot of articles on the mathematical theories behind. But I haven’t found patches using the library. I would be very thankful if some of you could share some patches so I better can understand the practical use.

All the best, Dagfinn


I think there are some examples in the OM Time Pack library unless you’ve seen them already.
I’ve never used the lib, thank you for the link to the documentation.

Apart from the included “examples” folder in the lib?

I’m not aware of other patches.

Just trawled all the libs at openmusic-project.github.com, and didn’t seem any other libs referred to it.

Hi Dagfinn,

I have here an old reference manual maybe this will help:
OMTP 2.5 Reference.pdf (319.1 KB)

Hi Karim, perfekt, thanks a lot, I read immediately after getting the file from you.

Best, Dagfinn

Hi Nadir, thanks for the tip. It looks like the examples are integrated part of the library and not examples. I tried to import them into the Work Space, but the message on Listener is that “can not be imported in the workspace.”

Hi Anders, I was thinking of contacting Paul Nauert, the author of OM Time Pack, but I found out now that he died in 2019 after being diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 2009. A horrible disease.


Hi Dagfinn,

Well the author called them “omtimepack-tutorial-patches”. All I did is import them from the help → import tutorial patches menu, once the lib is in your OM library folder as you know…

(Too bad, an awful disease indeed.)

Hi Nadir, thanks a lot. My bad. I had to restart Open MUsic, and then your instructions happened!

Best, Dagfinn
