Slider is a touchscreen musical interface that converts graphical table data into a linear array of musical notes. The slider software is run on a touchscreen computer which allows the table data to be entered by physically touching the graphical interface. Each point in the table is analyzed serially and yields a note. The notes are played back at user variable rhythm which can be changed by touching a rhythmic value icon at the left. The tempo can be changed as well. When a user touches the screen, the points are read and produce notes. The higher the line appears when it is read, the higher the note will sound. A keyboard appears beneath the table to reflect the pitch of the point currently being analyzed. By default, notes are read “up and down” that is, from left to right to left. This option can be changed to have notes read up (from left to right only) and down (from right to left only). Like all EAMIR software, the slider software can be customized to work with the sounds of any type of synthesizer. By default, the slider software will filter all of the notes to the 7 pitch classes of the C Major scale. The tonic and mode can be changed at any time by selecting from one of the 11 pitch classes or one of the 28 diatonic modes at the bottom left of the screen. User made patterns can be stored and recalled with ease by shift+clicking in the preset grid.
