Create Rhythm Tracks for NWC

Rhythm Tracks for NWCWe have created a new web application that can be used to create rhythm tracks for use in NoteWorthy Composer. This application utilizes the features introduced by the working draft of the Web MIDI API. At the time of this writing (May 2014), the MIDI features are only available in the latest version of the Google Chrome browser, and require some manual tweaking to get things fully enabled in the browser. Once your browser MIDI setup is working, you can use the new app to create new rhythm patterns, export them to NoteWorthy Composer, and share them with others via a simple web link.

New Lua Scripting Engine

Lua BookAnyone using NWC version 2.51 or later now has a built-in user tool scripting engine, with no extra download/install sequence required. Version 2.51 introduces a built-in Lua scripting engine that integrates a basic API for handling user tool input and output processing. Every copy of NoteWorthy Composer 2.51 includes two new user tools, found in the new .Automatic section of the User Tools command::

  1. Show Note Names.lua
    This returns a list of note names for the current selection. This is primarily intended as a demonstration of the Lua scripting engine.
  2. Retrograde.lua
    Like the PHP based user tool kit before it, this was the first Lua based user tool while version 2.51 was in development. It will reverse the notes in a selection, which can sometimes be inspiring when working with a composition.

There are several online resources that can help with getting started with your own Lua scripts:

  • The new API available from within a Lua based user tool is currently documented online at: lua.noteworthycomposer.com.
  • Much of the NWC Lua API is actually written in Lua. It can be explored from our gist on github.
