[Sharing breeds Alpacas] 4 hours worth of brain matter

Simple Pattern Based Algorithmic Sound Thingy, for the community.

Turn your audio on and hit the preset, et voila, music (albeit slightly repetitive and boring after about a minute type music)

Thanks for sharing, this is very attractive, and deceptively simple, not too repetitive at all. I’m gonna have fun pulling this apart and learning.

I think its a good starting point to get deeper in to this kind of stuff. Glad you like :)

Saw your time-stretch work there too; very very tasty indeed. It sounds like frequency-domain granulation – is it?

Jul 26, 2010 at 1:59pm

There’s no granulation, what I’m doing is altering the length of the function objects which are linked to the metro objects frequency, as there’s no samples I don’t need to do any time stretching.

well, i look forward to seeing it..

oooh, great patch man. congrats and thanks are in order.

i love making self sufficient patches myself, nothing more fun than watching something go to work without laying your hands on it once it starts running :)…

@brendan, its right there in the patch, just change the metro speed

@lewis, thanks, self sufficient is a great way of looking at it!

also, try replacing the random objects with drunk, sounds a bit better to me :)

Sorry Mike, didn’t make myself clear – I was referring to the other MaxMsp example on your youtube channel:


Jul 26, 2010 at 5:34pm

Ah right OK, I’m going to build that in to an app and distribute it as donationware. Later versions I plan to sell, so you’ll be waiting a long time for me to post it on here!

I may decide to sell a version of the patch without the GUI for Max heads, if there’s an audience for it?

Not looking for a freebie; just interested as a fellow academic. I’m building a digital musical instrument (i) physical model; (ii) granulation engine, for my PhD

Jul 26, 2010 at 6:01pm

haven’t a clue about physical models, but granular i can do, message me through soundcloud for more info on that. c74 why can’t we have a PM system on here? or at least a way to contact a user via email?
