This documentation covers the general use of the Modalys physical modeling synthesis software and has been throughly maintained. Although much of it has been redesigned and rewritten, many parts of it nonetheless are based on the original Morrison/Waxman documentation (either verbatim or paraphrased). It corresponds to Modalys 3.5.1, as of April 2019.
With Modalys you will enjoy creating mind-blowing virtual musical instruments based on physical models!
Modalys works for :
Mac OS 10.7 and later (including Yosemite, El Capitan & High Sierra)
Windows 7 and later (Modalys for Max only)
Intel Mac with a minimum of 2 Gigs of RAM.
Modalys is primarily a framework that can be used under various environments:
As ModaLisp, a stand-alone application powered by LISP language.
As Modalys for Max, a Max set of objects for realtime use (formely called 'Mlys'). Compatible with Max 5 to 8.
As an OpenMusic library.
As a MatLab set of objects for scientific applications.
On the Mac side, Modalys is a "fat" 32/64bit hybrid framework, meaning that it is used in 32 or 64bit context automatically. In particular, it is fully compatible with Max 6.1 or 7 in 64bit mode.
On Windows, we have two separate 32 & 64bit builds.
NB : this documentation can be accessed either from ModaLisp Help menu or directly from /Applications/Modalys.
