Pathfinder

Description

Script matches the way (path) between start tone and the tone of next cadence, which usually follows with a chord. Cadence got specified interval and quality of interfering with start tone. Match is made within tones selected by checkboxes in 'Scale' area. Quality of tones of the path may be selected by 'Path intervals' list and buttons. Buttons 'start cadence' and 'end cadence' describes if start and end tones of note progression has to be included in tones sent to pattern. Text list below with numbers and notes shows what notes and what order will be shot into pattern. Script automatically rematches paths when any control is moved unless 'auto rematch' checkbox is off. When you shot all the notes in the list into pattern you have to reload with 'rematch' button in order to get new note-bullets again. Button 'shot' shows amount of bullets left in brackets. Button 'close' is for closing the tool. You may see my website clicking on link in the tool below all controls.

Workflow:
How to use it.
1. First consider path of cadences. Line them up on a track. Turn on Pathfinder. Set cursor behind first cadence in your first track where new note has to stand.
2. Select cadence tone and octave in 'start tone' list and value box. Search for following cadence tone in list of intervals named 'cadence interval'. Values in the list are respectively - interval, note and quality of interval in percent of full consonance which is 100%. Start and end cadence may be automatically matched when you press "f.s.e." button, or "f.s." and "f.e." buttons for finding start and end cadence separately. Select quality (dissonance) of the path in list named 'path intervals' and length of the path measured in tones between cadences, not including cadences itself - 'path length' value box. Mark to not include start and end cadence in injected intervals by unmarking checkboxes 'start cadence' and 'end cadence'. You may select between found paths visible in a multiline text field by pressing 'Rematch' button. Ways are randomly generated so sometimes few presses are needed to find new one as often the same way is picked.
3. When you're ready click on 'Shot'.
4. Move the cursor to another point before target cadence and after note you just injected and click on 'Shot' again.
5. Repeat 4 until all the bullets gone which is stated by renaming button into 'Gun' and 'no path' visible in the list of bullets.
6. When you are done up to now, move behind target cadence and from now on target cadence becomes start cadence. To swap cadences press arrow button, next to start cadence controls.
7. Go to 2 unless you're out of cadences.
Notes will be injected with current instrument marked in instruments list.
