2. Create a live input into Max-MSP

* I did not give him my first draft to read through

2. Continue with the GUI

-Have all four locations complete with paragraphs

TICK! I have continued with the GUI I have now a live input instead of the various buttons for recording etc… I am still writing the paragraphs.

TICK! Alex told me to find software that calculates the RT. I have found and used Fuzz measure. I have completed analysis on all four churches!

4. Continue writing the technical report

-Re-do the Introduction and Context

-Start writing ‘Working Methods and Outcomes’ and ‘Results’

TICK! I have continued writing the technical report I have re-wrote the introduction, context, scope and objectives, working methods and outcomes and results.

Feedback from Alex

Today I had a meeting with Alex to discuss my progress on the convolution project.

Tasks to do by next week…

1. Find free software to work out the RT60/ EDT from the four impulse responses

2. Create a live input into the max-MSP patch

3. Bring in the Max-MSP patch next week to talk about the interface

 

I have expanded on these points…

1. Find free software…

Fuzz measure

– Plot a graph on each IR of the RT60

– Compare and identify which IR which – relate to characteristics of each room i.e. Gorsley has a carpet so less RT than the others with stone falls.

– Write a brief report on what the RT60 calculation, sabine etc…

2. Carry on with the GUI

– Make device in real-time so I can get rid of all buttons

-Get Emma, Mike to use it. Easy? what do  I need to change?

– Re-do patch make it simple to use.

-Think of final application .Can IR’s be uploaded by a button?
