This non-linear TextureModule treats each pitch in each set of a Path as an independent voice; each voice is written one at time over the complete time range of each set in the Texture.

This TextureModule performs a simple vertical presentation of the Path, each set sustained over the complete duration proportion of the set within the Texture. Note: rhythm and bpm values have no effect on event durations.

This TextureModule provides free access to Path pitch collections in an order, rate, simultaneity size, and simultaneity composition determined by generator ParameterObjects. Path Multisets are directly selected by index values generated by a ParameterObject; all values are probabilistically rounded to the nearest integer and are resolved by the modulus of the Path length. The number of simultaneities created from a selected Multiset is controlled by a generator ParameterObject; all values are probabilistically rounded to the nearest integer. Pitches within Multisets are directly chosen by index values generated by a ParameterObject; all values are probabilistically rounded to the nearest integer and are resolved by the modulus of the Multiset size. The number of pitches extracted from a Multiset is controlled by a generator ParameterObject; a size of zero takes all pitches from the selected Multiset; sizes greater than the number of pitches are resolved to the maximum number of pitches. Remaining event parameters are determined by their respective ParameterObjects.

This TextureModule provides limited access to Path pitch collections in an order, rate, simultaneity size, and simultaneity composition determined by generator ParameterObjects. Path Multisets and pitches within Multisets are chosen by selectors. The number of simultaneities that are created from a Multiset, and the number of pitches in each simultaneity, are controlled by generator ParameterObjects; all values are probabilistically rounded to the nearest integer. When extracting pitches, a size of zero takes all pitches from the selected Multiset; sizes greater than the number of available pitches are resolved to the maximum number of pitches. Remaining event parameters are determined by their respective ParameterObjects.

This TextureModule interpolates parameters between events generated under a non-linear monophonic context. All standard and auxiliary parameters, or just time parameters, can be interpolated. Interpolation method may be linear, power, or half-cosine. Frames are generated between each event at a rate controlled by a ParameterObject. Frame rates can be updated once per event or once per frame, as set by the level frame duration texture parameter. Power segment interpolation may use dynamic exponent values from a ParameterObject; exponent values are updated once per event. Note: independent of silenceMode, silent events are always created.

This TextureModule performs each set of a Path as a literal line; pitches are chosen from sets in order, and are optionally repeated within a single set's duration. Algorithmic ornamentation is added to a line based on two factors: the selection of an ornament repertory, and the specification of ornament density. Ornament pitch values, where integers are half steps, are additionally shifted by a value produced by a generator ParameterObject.

This TextureModule performs each set of a Path as a chord cluster, randomly choosing different voicings.

This TextureModule performs each set of a Path as a simple monophonic line; pitches are chosen from sets in the Path based on the pitch selector control.

This TextureModule performs each set of a Path as a literal horizontal line; pitches are chosen from sets in fixed order, and are optionally repeated within a single set's proportional duration.

This TextureModule performs each set of a Path as a literal verticality; pitches are chosen from sets in fixed order, and are optionally repeated within a single set's proportional duration.

This non-linear TextureModule fills a Texture time range with events; event start times are determined by mapping values produced by a generator ParameterObject (set to output values between 0 and 1) to the Texture time range. Remaining event parameters are determined by their respective ParameterObjects.

This non-linear TextureModule fills a Texture time range with events; event start times are determined by mapping values produced by a generator ParameterObject (set to output values between 0 and 1) to segments of the Texture time range, where each segment width is determined by both a generator ParameterObject for segment weight and a the total segment count. Segment weights are treated as proportional weightings of the Texture's duration. Remaining event parameters are determined by their respective ParameterObjects.
