Generative/Algorithmic max/msp patch programming….. Starting to yield results

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010 | Building Things, Max/MSP, Music!

rahehA little output from a software patch i’m working on to make music out of user input. The input in this case is any number. All the patterns are generated from this number, there is no randomness used in the software, so if you enter the number twice you get the same output. These examples also use one source sample which i was changing throughout. Still lot’s I want to do with this, the melodic parts could do with a lot of work for example…

I’m wondering if I should make this into Forester 2? And if there is any interest I could do a generative music video tutorial of some sort… hummm…

Yeah, sounds interesting for sure! What might be nice is to have the ability to have two or more samples going at once, each with a choice of one of the algorithms… maybe a time-stretch or pitch feature as well. Lots of possibilities!

Fear not peeps, one is in the making – it’s tough to work out how it should be done to the best effect though. I like the idea of people building along with the videos. If you actually have to make the patch you learn a lot more, but it takes much longer for me to do it that way as apposed to a quick over view of the existing patch…. When i make my mind up i’ll post it on the site
