Particle Swarm Optimization: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Particl...m_optimization but k-series clustering may be sufficient. My gut feeling though is that PSO to cluster modal speeds is a more elegant solution.

Methinks he be pulling our legs. Oddly enough, I wasn't sure until I watch this clip.

When i first read the title of this thread, I instinctually thought of modes of the major scale. Dudelsack beat me to the punch.

Ionian and Phrygian are the first and third modes of a major scale. Superlocrian is the seventh mode of a melodic minor scale, also known as the diminished wholetone scale, the altered dominant scale, or the "Pomeroy Scale".

If memory serves me, Hypophrygian is similar in structure to Superlocrian, but contains the perfect 4th instead of the third. YOJIMBO could probably tell you more about Hypophrigian and it's uses.

Not yet. I'll be adding this feature in the next release.

I'll be staying with the retro encabulator for now. I'll get back with you should I change my mind.

9. do you still need to actually go on the ride if you enter all the theoretical modals into the machine?
