Do you remember this VST idea I had http://www.larsby.com/johan/?p=187 ? Well I tried it out. Not fully, but close enough.
In Ableton Live I added a beat, then I recorded midi of me banging to it in different variations. Then I put that through the Live randomizer and then the scale plugin. The scale plugin was fixed so that notes could not clash with each other. Then I recorded the output of that midi data into a few tracks with softsynths. It sounds pretty art musicy, but still good. I wonder if I should program the VST or just wait for max 4 Live.
Anyways here is the mp3 you’ve been waiting for: testing the melody generation idea
There are existing modules for this for Max. (Schoenberg) I could ask a friend of mine who’s more into Max than I am about it if you want. Otherwise, this should be pretty possible to do in Reaktor as well. Reaktor is able to output MIDI to other VST(i)’s if the host supports it.
Thankyou, but I’ll just bide my time. I have a gazillion things on the go 🙂
