dada
==================================================

**dada** is a library for `Max <http://cycling74.com/>`_ containing non-standard user interface modules for computer assisted composition and music generation.

**dada** is based on the `bach <http://www.bachproject.net/>`_ public API.

The official website is www.bachproject.net/dada

The official repository is https://github.com/bachfamily/dada. You can find the source code there.


Acknowledgments
===================

**dada** is part of Daniele Ghisi's PhD project, supported by:

* `Ircam <http://www.ircam.fr>`_ (Paris, France)
* `Université Pierre et Marie Curie <http://www.upmc.fr>`_ (UPMC Paris, France)
* `Sorbonne Universités <http://www.sorbonne-university.com/>`_ (Paris, France)
* `CNRS <http://www.cnrs.fr/>`_ (France)



Install
=======

If you only need to use **dada**, you can download it from www.bachproject.net/dada and simply install it by putting it inside the Max Packages folder.

You can start by having a look at the dada.overview patcher inside the Extras menu in Max ("dada library" submenu). Every module has help files and reference sheets that document its behavior.

If you want to improve *dada* or add other modules, you'll need some libraries:

* The `bach library <http://www.bachproject.net>`_ 
* The `bach 0.8 SDK <http://www.bachproject.net/download-2/>`_
* `Simple Matrix <https://sites.google.com/site/simpmatrix/>`_ library (v4.1), used for multidimensional scaling in the dada.distances module
* The `Boost <http://www.boost.org>`_ library, used for graph placement algorithms in the dada.graph module

The Max documentation for all modules is compiled from the sources by running `Doctor Max <https://github.com/danieleghisi/DoctorMax>`_ with the preferences stored in the file "docs/dada_DoctorMax_settings.txt"
