This Is A Great Creative Tool For Generative And Algorithmic Composition On OSX And Windows

Press Here To Enter The Site: Melody Generator

“In spite of its name, the generation of tonal melodies is not the principal aim of Melody Generator II. Its goal is scientific: to establish our understanding of tonal music by developing an artificial music generator and evaluating the well-formednes and ‘quality’ of the melodies it yields.

For this purpose, Melody Generator II incorporates a large amount of knowledge about tonal music, collected in theoretical and experimental research, which forms the basis for the construction of tonal melodies.”

Melody Generator II differs from systems that help users to create melodies by providing a platform for generating music that assists the user to obey the rules of tonal music (e.g. non-chord tone resolution, voice leading, motive development). These systems basically constrain the selection of tones and chords but the actual selection is still made by the user. Melody Generator II carries out the complete process of melody construction, although the user can edit the result in various ways.

Cellular Automata On-Line And StandAlone Application (Win)

Press Here To Enter The Site: Cellular Automata

Mirek’s Java Cellebration (MJCell) is a Java applet that allows playing 300+ Cellular Automata rules and 1400+ patterns. It can play rules from 13 CA rules families: GenerationsLifeVoteWeighted LifeRule tablesCyclic CA1D totalistic1D binaryNeumann binaryGeneral binaryMargolus neighborhoodLarger than Life, and some of the User DLLs. It allows also to experiment with own rules. The applet is a simplified version of MCell. It does not offer extended features of MCell, but has one advantage over it: its usage is not restricted to MS WindowsFull source code of the applet is available here. You can also download the full off-line version equipped with a rich library of patterns. You should also download this version if you plan to put the MJCell applet on your own Web page.

 

cfxr (OSX) sfxr (Windows) – Sound Effects Software

OSX Version At This Page:

Enter: cfxr

Original Windows Version:

Enter: sfxr

Info From Web Site:

“This is a little tool I made in connection with the 10th Ludum Dare competition held in December 2007. Its original purpose was to provide a simple means of getting basic sound effects into a game for those people who were working hard to get their entries done within the 48 hours and didn’t have time to spend looking for suitable ways of doing this.
The idea was that they could just hit a few buttons in this application and get some largely randomized effects that were custom in the sense that the user could accept/reject each proposed sound.

It turned out to work rather well and a lot of the entrants used it, which is cool. Anyone else in the same situation (need some basic sound effects, don’t really care about top quality, have no idea where to get them) should find it pretty useful, if nothing else then just as placeholder sounds to kill the silence until final content has been produced.

Basic usage involves hitting the randomize button (or one of the other buttons to your left if you need a specific standard sound), listen to the generated sound, then deciding if it sounds ok or not. If it does, then export it to .WAV and you’re done, if not – just hit the button again and get something different.
All the parameters used to create each sound are manually tweakable to allow fine-tuning if you feel like getting your hands dirty. Space is a useful shortcut to play the current sound.

There will probably be a minor update of this in the near future, adding some convenient features.

Source code is available and you’re free to use it for anything you please. I’ve put it under the MIT free software license.”

Complex, Beautiful And Very Easy To Make Fractal Graphics (Windows)

Some of the images that I create here: flickr for example and videos on Vimeo take a lot of time and patience.  But I recently discovered this diamond and it’s not very rough, MandelBulb 3D.  This “little” work of genius is free and available at FractalForums I want to sincerely thank everyone involved in the development and distribution of this really wonderful piece of software.  After downloading and simple install, I just started “messing around” with various settings and quickly came to some wonderful results.  I didn’t see any documentation but this software just begs to let you experiment with the settings.  Try this software and support the site.  By the way, there are several other applications featured on FractalForums and they many certainly be great applications but I just haven’t had the time to test ride them as of now.  Have fun fractalizing.

GIMP – The GNU Image Manipulation Program

Press Here To Enter Gimp

MP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

GIMP is written and developed under X11 on UNIX platforms. But basically the same code also runs on MS Windows and Mac OS X.

Paul’s Extreme Sound Stretch-Great Freeware App For Windows

“This is a program for stretching the audio. It is suitable only for extreme sound stretching of the audio (like 50x) and for applying special effects by “spectral smoothing” the sounds. It can transform any sound/music to a texture. The program is Open-Source and it’s released under the version 2 of the General Public License. You can download the source code for Linux or the Windows binaries.

Please note that this is suitable only for extreme time stretching (e.g. if have a melody of 3 minutes and you want to listen it in 3 hours). If you want “less extreme” time stretching, you can use a program which contains the SoundTouch library.”

Works really well with a host of features.  Thanks!
