properties of sound-objects
topological sound-object properties
means that the beginning of the sound-object may overlap the end of an object
preceding it in the same sequence.
means that its end may overlap another object following it in the same
means that the beginning may be truncated if it overlaps an object in the same
means that the end may be truncated if it overlaps an object in the same
sequence. These properties (see Fig.3) may also be assigned within absolute or
means that the object may "break" the striated structure (
properties are shown Fig.4.
means that the beginning of this object should join (or overlap) the end of a
preceding one in the same sequence.
means the end of this object should join (or overlap) the beginning of a
following one. These properties may be compensated with a tolerance for a gap
preceding or following the object.
continuity and MIDI properties
(see Fig.4) instruct BP2 how to deal with channel, transposition, articulation,
volume and panoramic changes as far as this object is concerned.
these sets of properties (stored in the "-mi." file) and a setting of the time
base, BP2 will try to set all objects in time. For this it may need to
relocate some of the objects that have Reloc or BrkTempo properties, truncate
other objects, etc. If there is no solution, BP2 may release some of the
constraints. (See operational mode §5.2)
