Java Set Theory Machineby Jay Tomlin
Please allow time for the applet to load. Depending on your connection speed
and computer muscle, it could take as long as 5 minutes for all of the applet's
sounds and images to load over the network and initialize.
If you don't know what Musical Set Theory is, please read all about it.
(Includes help on using the applet.)
- Turn your speakers up! The applet lets you hear the sets you create.
- You can hear individual pitches by clicking on the keyboard.
- Click numbers on the clockface to toggle set members on/off.
- To define a new set, use the "Define Set..." button or just type a
comma-separated list of numbers in the "Pitch Class Set:" field and press
Enter (Mac users press Return)
- If you switch to another window and then come back to this web page, the
applet's piano keyboard and clockface map do not redraw. As far as I can tell,
this is a Java problem and not my problem.
Solution: To facilitate
things, I've added a Redraw button on the side bar. Just click redraw after
switching windows has erased those parts of the applet.
- In Netscape 2.02 for Windows, the text field on the "Define set" card does
not always clear itself properly when you alter the type of sets to list
(e.g., triads, chords, scales, or Forte numbers. This results in an offset
between the list of sets and the set you are given.
Upgrade to Netscape 3.0 or higher.
- On some Macintoshes, the help button opens a blank browser window.
