And the Casserole sounds like a wood block?

Anyway, this is pretty awesome. There are a number (well, Janus at least) of bards who have moved to PCs and can no longer compose music. Since there doesn't seem to be an active BardGM (or at least not one who can create CLTH for windows), such bards (and bard-wannabes) are left out. Now they have something to use (even if it doesn't have the little piano I know and love). Huzzah!

I would love to see CLTF developed for the web.

errrr, in THEORY i could go and do that, although it would really suck because i am mediocre at php/html and would need to go and learn a LOT more javascript. i think it's a kickass idea though.

oh, and also i would currently have nowhere to host it (unless i go kick my server admin again. that's getting tiresome though.)

so uh. i mean, if NOBODY else steps forward, something might surface, somewhere, in like, a few months.

maybe.

I have been taking on various new-CLTH-like projects for the past year or so, in my spare hobbyist programming time, but I'm not really anywhere close to having a CLTH-like thing available, and a web-version was never really on my list.

Hi!

We have just made the source of the Arindal Tune Helper available on http://bard.arindal.com. So if you want to help improve it, come there. There is currently not much (as in none) documentation available on how to compile it, but that will follow *soon* :). As a quick tip: you need maven2 (http://maven.apache.org/) to compile it. If you use Eclipse (http:/eclipse.org) as your Java IDE, I recommend Q4E (http://code.google.com/p/q4e/) for a maven2 integration.

The source for the Bard Tool is licenced under the 3-clause BSD License, so you are basicaly free to do anything with it you want. But of course it would be great if you would give back to us if you improve things.

Even though I am not a coder, I want to thank you guys. I'd love to see this expanded more.

Oh dear god, yes please.

I can't compose without that tiny piano. A horrible and wonderful crutch that it is for those of us that play by ear.

:edit: Wait- I just realized that the last post was from March of 2008 :lol:

Any word on if anyone is/could develop this? I would like to compose, and am aware of this Midi converter business...but I know jacksquat about music, and composing in CLTH has been my own experience.

It's pretty common-sense for there to be a Java/cross platform tuner helper tool; I think this should be put moderately high on the priority list, considering the number of PC players.
