Mutable Instruments Yarns Editor

Post by notinachos »

I wrote a software editor for Mutable Instruments' Yarns. It makes editing Yarns a snap!

Features:
* Open source! Free!
* Yarns is deep, and editing complex layouts via the encoder can be cumbersome.
* Randomize anything! Generate complex arpeggios and Euclidean patterns with the click of a button! This is FUN.
* Prolong your encoder lifespan! Combined, there are over 1,000 potential values for EACH part, and Yarns has up to four parts! That's a lot of clicking and dialing!

Check out the screenshots:

Download the Windows release here (I'm working on Mac/Linux versions currently):

Or the source code here:

Disclaimer: I am not endorsed by Mutable Instruments. I'm just a guy, you know? This is a project I worked on because it was useful to me, and hopefully others as well. This release is beta. I'm sure there will be bugs that I have missed. I encourage any suggestions for improvements to the software, and I'll do my best to offer support via PM. Let me know what you think!

Holy crap, you are a saint. This looks really well done, and now I HAVE to get a Yarns. The menu diving was really the only thing holding me back. Thank you for sharing!!

Haha, thanks! Yarns is a fantastic interface, with a ton of functionality under the hood. I totally understand the beef with menu diving, and that was a large motivator for me to write the editor. Especially when editing some of the complex 4-part layouts that Yarns is capable of!

The Mac and Linux versions use the same Python source code, so it's just a matter of fixing some bugs at this point. Hopefully I'll have them available soon! :)

Yep, it connects to Yarns via MIDI, and works by sending CC messages on the "remote control" MIDI channel (the RC option on Yarns' main menu.)

I won't be able to try this until the Mac version, but curious, is it possible to make sequences in an app like this as well? It'd be cool to be able to write phrases in midi and drop them into the sequencer channels.
