I was a bit disappointed to find out that Palle's demo for Clavia was not broadcasted on the audio stream. Is there anybody out here that can give a short overview of the info he gave? I'll even say the magic word: Please?

I'm sure that more details will be available from Clavia soon.

Palle Dahlstedt introduced a new version of the editor, 1.4, that will be coming out this summer I think. The significant feature is a "mutation" function.
It applies principles of evolutionary selection to a patch.
Similar to functions available in some graphics programs, it allows you to select from a number of mutations of a patch, by clicking on each one and listening to it, deciding which ones you like and doing further mutations, etc. I guess you could call it a patch randomizer, but one where you can apply intelligent selection to the results.
You can control things like the probabilty and amount of change in the mutated "children". Also you can do recombination, which creates a series of children that take their parameters from two parents.
Another feature he mentioned afterwards, but didn't demonstrate (so I don't know much about how it works) is that you can create a kind of interpolated morph between two variations of a patch.
I think this feature is great, it gives you a very easy and intuitive way to generate new sounds and variations, instantly evaluating how you like them and allowing that to guide the progression.
All of this is based on research Palle has done on applying evolutionary models to music.
It is a feature of the editor, nothing changes in the synth itself.
It will also be available in the demo editor.
I don't have time to explain much more now, I have to go set up for day 3 of electro-music 2005. I will mention to Palle that people have asked about it here. We'll have some more information tomorrow when the show is over.
Sorry that there were some technical difficulties with the streaming.

Thanks for sharing the info. Seems like the leaked info was true. I was curious if there would be any news about the NM1 trade-in offer and the sudden numerous speculations about patch convertors these days (clavia announced the trade-in deal to be 'in cooperation with em2005' or something like that), but I guess not.

Yeah, there was no mention of any other imminent releases. Palle just mentioned that some bugs would be fixed but that the main feature of the new release is the patch mutator. it looked pretty cool, IMO. the key here is 'intelligent patch exploration'. i think it's a forward-thinking approach that could easily benefit anyone without it becoming some kind of gimmick or 'easy way out'.

Palle also had no further information regarding the fulfilment of any user wishes as they've been cataloged on the electro-music nord modular forum, e.g., new modules.

If you're interested in this I recommend reading his thesis (see Google). It's rather entertaining and well-written.
