Still very much a n00b… I’ve gone through a fair amount of the tutorial and viewed some examples but I’m missing some knowledge so I hope it is okay to just ask. I tend to learn best by defining an objective on my own and then learning what I need to achieve that objective… as opposed to just memorizing a manual from front to back.
So, the task I’ve given myself is mimicking Pavane in clarinet Duo. I’ve found the sheet music for the work, and even a MIDI file that performs the work in clarinet Duo which plays well on Mac Garage Band, and I’ve also found a tone.js site that converts the MIDI to JSON and then plays it using tone.js. All great.
So now I’d like to do something similar in Sonic Pi – it is fine if I have to hand code the notes with play to achieve the appropriate note, duration, and amp (velocity), but how do I achieve a clarinet sounding instrument with Pi? I poked around in the source that I downloaded and I do see that there is a wavetables directory and it contains defs for some woodwinds (clarinet, flute) – but I’m not sure how to use those in the Sonic Pi paradigm?
I do see that there are synths (synth_names) defined for piano and pluck, but I don’t see anything for woodwind – am I missing something?
