Using orchids on Virtual Machine

Hi everyone,

I like orchids, but obviously, it has been a long time since EL Capitan was en vogue. So, I booted up a virtualbox machine using a virtualized copy of El Capitan and it is working nicely. More orchids for me!

I see this forum is a little dead, but maybe if we do this we can keep it up.

You can set it up yourself (for free) using this tutorial: tech forum tutorial

Hi Carmine,

Thanks for the update! I have been working with Ochidea also. Is it possible to set the output to be microtonal as it is in ORCHIDS?

Dear all
The microtonal setting will be available soon but not in this first release. You will still get output tuning in c’è nts but not quantized to microtones.
The software will be distributed as max toolbox and will run on all systems supported by max 7 and 8.
More info soon.

Hi Carmine,

I was playing with Orchidea and was able to set microtonal settings in Bach, but does this mean that Orchidea.solve is not actually resolving microtones? The Bach tonedivision definitely realizes the output as microtonal. Is that incorrect?

I have sent a bug report, but I wanted to mention here that there is an error somewhere in the tam tam db file. Orchidea.solve cannot find the audio files to generate the realization.

Hi

thanks a lot for your comment on the Tam tam db. I’ll try to address the issue.
Regarding the microtonal output, you can indeed plot them as quantised by quarter tones, but the solution generated by Orchidea (audio) will be pitched to specific cents and not quantised. I’m trying to figure out a good way to address this issue too.
Best
