MetaMix (2002)-Software Audio & Art

Press Here To Access: MetaMix

MetaMix is a cross between a musical composition, a digital audio player, an interactive experience, a software tool, and a work of conceptual art. Feed MetaMix your favorite audio track and listen as familiar music is transformed into a new listening experience. MetaMix superimposes new musical structures onto existing music by turning special mathematical integer sequences into new musical forms. These musical forms are used to “remix” the audio track you choose.

I recorded a short piano piece and processed it through MetaMix:

Sapling 1.1: Standalone Sound-Mangling Application Built With Max/MSP 5 (OSX)

This free application has a lot going for it and with a little practice, some very unique sounds can be found in it. The only disadvantage that I can see is that it takes only aiff audio files, but there are free and inexpensive audio converters out there if any conversion is necessary.  Here are the key features as listed by the web site:

•control loop start time, size, and playback speed of four audio files
drag and drop a folder of sound files for quick access to custom libraries of sounds
• randomizing of various parameters for unexpected results
• built-in stereo reverb and filtering effects
• record output to disk for further processing or conversion to other file formats
• store your favorite presets quickly and easily
• cpu monitor gives you realtime feedback concerning Sapling’s tax on your machine
• independent effects sends for each file and panning/balance control
• freeware (but <a title=”https://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=k@sineqube.com&item_name=sineqube+software&method=”post”donations welcome)
• On/off toggles for each individual file, with hotkeys
• Ability to save and load presets to and from disk
• Access to I/O settings (Note: this feature was added to fulfill user requests. It has had minimal testing by the beta team, but all reports were positive).

Thank You Vade for this great Quartz Composer software! Visit his site at: v002.info/​?page_id=19

Quote from Bill Etra:

“The dream was to create a compositional tool that would allow you to prepare visuals like a composer composes music. I called it then and I call it now “the visual piano”, because with the piano the composer can compose an entire symphony and be sure of what it will sound like. It was my belief then and it is my belief now after 40 years of working towards this, that this will bring about a great change and great upwelling of creative work once it is accomplished. This software is one step closer to that since, once we’re on the computer, things can be developed and repeated reliably.”

 

BEASTmulch: Project For Large-Scale Multichannel Electroacoustic Composition and Presentation

BEASTmulch System is a software tool for the presentation of electroacoustic music over multichannel systems. Designed primarily with a classic ‘live diffusion’ model in mind, it is nevertheless flexible enough to be adapted for a number of purposes, and can support input and output configurations of arbitrary complexity (i.e. live inputs, soundfiles with varying numbers of channels, etc.).

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.


Variety Of Sound-Sound Design & Audio Effect Programming

Windows Vst Plugins Including Including FerricTDS Winner of KVR Developer Challenge 2009

“As a computer scientist and musician, I’m enjoying designing DSP algorithms and plug-in concepts. It’s a pleasure for me to share my efforts with other people without having to worry about commercial interests. In each of my effects there is a special technical design, workflow or concept combination I haven’t found in existing tools. Many developers these days just stick to old concepts, but you will never see a straight copy of existing gear from me. I always add some innovation, or find a way to evolve and take it to a new level.”
