Spike version 1.6 addresses Macintosh OS 8 and OS 8.1 compatibility issues and fixes problems displaying some QuickTime datarate graphs of movies with more than 3000 frames. Spike now processes both Macintosh and cross-platform (datafork-only) movies created by all versions of QuickTime, including Quicktime 3.0.
CyberMozart version 3.0 is a major upgrade of YAV's popular implementation of Mozart's "Musical Dice Game." The new version can now save, recall, and print notation files along with both type 1 and type 0 standard MIDI files. The revamped user interface adds drag-and-drop and OS 8 support. A new installer makes it easier to get started.
PushBtnBach version 2.0 is also a major upgrade of this popular algorithmic music software. A new "continuous" option composes and plays back new "Bach" works without intervention for as long as you like. The revamped user interface adds drag-and-drop and OS 8 support, and a new installer makes it easier to get going. All the algorithms have been brought up to date with the current version of the YAV Music Engine being showcased at Amsterdam's newMetropolis Center for Science and Technology and scheduled for release on YAV's "The Music is the Message" CD-ROM in February.
