Enter Here: GUidMachine
“The Guid Machine is a Step Sequencer combined with a sample player. The Step sequencer has 4 X 16 steps while the sample player can load 4 samples simultanuously. Nothing new so far, but what makes the GUIdMachine special are a few unique features.
First of all you can easily shift any of the sequences up and down by any number of steps and you can decide the length of each raw. But even this is not news. Whatâ€™s special about it is that you can randomize this modifications and so the pattern will never be constant if you want.
“The velocities can be randomized too so the accents will also change during time
and make the loops more interesting. But the most unique feature is that the 4 sequences can play at 4 different BPMs!
The Sample Player section is a fairly straight forward 4 voices sample player with a good envelope section and the possiblitly to change the pitch , the length , the start point all on the fly.
It also features a 4 tap delay section, a master Vst insert and the possiblity to record audio files of what you are doing.”
This Generative Music Composer Is Simple But Works Very Well

“Seurat is a collection of image processing applications that use cellular automata to animate still images”
” Leipzig is a Just Intonation library written in Java“
I haven’t had much time to work with this application but I can see a lot of potential here. The interface is so different than a standard MIDI sequencer that it forces you to adapt yourself to a new style of composition. It’s not hard to use and the MIDI data flowed nicely into Logic. There are a lot of options with this software and if you are a Mac user, give it a workout.

Nice Collection Of MIDI Controller Software
“I’d like to collect PC software here that will convert different signals from a variety of input devices into MIDI or keystrokes for use in controllerism. Please don’t clutter this thread with “Oh WOW” and “That’s great!” Start a new thread about that software. Just add links in the format I’ve started, and even add a quick description. Add any new categories, I skipped iPhone since I don’t have one.”

Linking Science, Art, and Practice Through Digital Sound
This project’s objective is to develop curricular material that explains the science and mathematics of digital sound in a way that makes their relationship to applications clear, using examples from theatre, movies, and music production. This is a collaborative project among computer science, education, and digital sound design professors at a liberal arts university and a performing arts conservatory.
The intention is to engage students’ interest in science by linking it more tightly to practice, including artistic applications. The vision is to draw more students to the study of computer science by means of its exciting connections with art and digital media.
