The concept of “mapping” is frequently used in the computer music community these days, and has also been used over the last couple of days during the Jamoma workshop. This reminded me about the distinction between mapping and conditioning, as frequently pointed out by Marcelo Wanderley:
- Conditioning: filtering, scaling and normalizing signals in a 1-to-1 mapping
- Mapping: creating couplings between multidimensional data sets, e.g. MxN.
For clarity’s sake it is probably useful to separate between the two.
