What's that ?

The Soledine is a software that permits to visualize harmonic sounds. The obtained patterns are Harmonic Sound Mandalas. You find more infos on the page "Harmonic Sound Mandalas"

 

How to use the software ?

The software is freely accessible at : https://www.instants-presents.lu/soledine/
(attention: works on PC and MAC, but not on tablets and phones !)

To start, I recommend to watch the video tutorial of the software.

 

 

Explanations of the parameters and buttons :

 

carre jouerWindow : Load a song

Click on a song
or
load your own file (.mp3, .mp4, .ogg, .webm). I advise you to choose rather slow melodies.
or
record a sound from the microphone of your computer. After having clicked on on "start micro recording", it is possible that a window opens, asking you authorization ti use the microphone. Click on "ok". When you want to stop the recording, click on "stop recording". After that you have the possibility to save the recording by clicking on "save recording". If you want to revisualize the recording, load the saved recording under "load your own file".

You will hear the music and see the evolution of the Mandala in the main window.

 

 

carre jouerMain window

This is the main visualization window : you see the Sound Resonance Mandala in it. More informations on how these Sound Resonance Mandala are created : here.

 

 

 

 

 

carre jouerWindow: Play and pause

When you see a Mandala you like, click on pause.

You can then go bakc several steps with the buttons below.

 

 

 

 

carre jouerWindow : Adjust the parameters

You can modify the Mandala : the stroke width, stroke color, background-color, ...

Filter : Feather This is a filter that is applied to the original Mandala. Click on this button and the Mandala will get colorized and a little blurry. The cursor next the button permits to adjust the intensity of the blur. This filter is activated by default (dark button color)
If you click again on the same button, the filter deactivates.

Filter : Cymatics This is a filter that is applied to the original Mandala. Click on this button, and the Mandala will resemble the resonant patterns that you can observe when a plate with water is placed on a speaker. The study of this phenomenons is called cymatics. Surprising, not ?
The cursor next the button permits to adjust the intensity of the filter.
If you click again on the same button, the filter deactivates.

Amplitude decrease stop (in extended mode only and if you play on the virtual keyboard): Permits to stop the decrease of the amplitudes (to "freeze" the pattern of already played notes).
This is allso interesting if you want to create a static Mandala : Click on the button "Amplitude decrease stop", then play 2, 3 or 4 notes (you can click on the little "off" button above each key to cancel a note), then adjust the "parameters" until obtaining a Mandala you like.
To restart the amplitude decrease, reclick on the same button.

Velocity of amplitude decrease  (in extended mode only and if you play on the virtual keyboard): Permits to modify the velocity of the amplitude decrease.
It is recommanded that you increase this number if you play fast and to decrease it if you play slowly.
If you do not see any Mandalas forming, but only "circles", decrease this number to permit the successive amplitudes to interact.
If the software slows down (if there is a delay between the moment you play a note and the moment you hear the sound), increase this number.

 

 

carre jouerWindow : Save file

You can save your Mandala file here to order your Mandala wooden panel or to rework your Mandala later. The saved file has a .txt extension and can be used only to be joined to your Mandala order or to be opened in the Soledine software (under "open a previously saved Mandala file"). Do not modifiy this file : it may become unusable.

carre jouerThe virtual keyboard (only visible in extended mode):

Click on any of the keys of the virtual keyboard. Above each key displays a number that indicates the current value of the amplitude of the corresponding note. Above that is a button labelled "off" that permits to put to 0 the amplitude of the corresponding note (this is especially useful if the button "stop amplitude decrease" is activated)
