NEW Features!

- Morphs able to be produced on patches already containing morphs.
- "Clear All" button added to clear all patches from NME window.
- Number of morphs present in a particular patch now displayed above patch name.

Introduction:

NME - nord morph editor (pronounced "enemy") is a program to automatically produce morph assignments for the Clavia nord modular synthesiser.

This is accomplished by following these steps:
• Make a patch in the nord modular editor program. This is the starting point for your morph.
• Save the patch.
• Tweak the patch until you get the sound you want as the ending point of your morph.
• Save the patch with a different name to the first patch.
• Start up NME.
• Using the "Open" button for Patch 1, load in the first patch.
• Using the "Open" button for Patch 2, load in the second patch.
• Press the "Make Morphs" button. Morphs will, by default, be assigned to morph 1. To assign the morph to a different morph, select the morph number you want and press "Make Morphs" again.
• Your new patch will be produced, with a file name the same as the original patch with the letter "M" appended to signify a morphed patch.
• Press the "Save" button for the Resultant Patch.
• Save the new patch.
• You can now open the new morphed patch in the modular editor program.
• Have fun morphing your new patch.

There is a "Show Patch Source" disclosure triangle. Pressing this will show the source text of the patches loaded into Patch 1, Patch 2 and Resultant Patch.


Limitations:

• Due to the limitations of the nord patch architecture, only 25 parameter changes are able to be made to use in morphs.
• Event sequencer buttons are not able to be morphed.

Thanks to:

All the people on the nord mailing list, especially Jan Punter for the invaluable Patch Reference Document, Clavia for designing such a wonderful piece of musical heaven and my fingers for allowing me to play my nord.
