Euclidean Rhythm Generator
A MAX FOR LIVE DEVICE.
Version 2.3 with new Dynamic / Density modulation feature.
Inspired by the paper ‘The Euclidean Algorithm Generates Traditional Musical Rhythms’ by Godfried Toussaint. Already existing MFL devices I found on the Web did not satisfy my needs (broken basic algorithm, missing some features I needed, incomplete integration in Ableton Live…). So I wrote my own device starting from scratch. The device is entirely written in MAX/MSP(6.0.7). No externals are used.
For the basic paper take a look at: cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~godfried/publications/banff.pdf
