I saw this over at Matrixsynth and thought I’d take a look, but it’s really expensive so I didn’t bother. But take a look.
Caelestis is a unique, sample based generative music app that creates sounds with bouncing balls. Three shapes on the screen are used as ‘rooms’ that contain a sound. Different coloured balls can be thrown around inside these rooms, generating notes when one collides with a side. Using different combinations of balls and sounds, all kinds of beautiful performances can be achieved.
- Three rooms, with up to three balls at one time per room.
- Each room can be spun around to change the path of the balls inside.
- Balls added and removed easily by dragging or tapping in the middle of each room.
- Four different ball colours.
- Speed control for the balls.
- Pitch control using the built in keyboard, octave control using the different coloured balls.
- Delay and Reverb FX.
- A mixer unit, allowing volume and FX control over each room.
- 30 presets in three categories: Tuned, Abstract and Percussive.
- Import your own samples into the app via Audio Paste. Audio can be re-pitched by up to 12 semitones. Please note that only WAV and MP3 are supported formats.
- Record your performances and export them via Audio Copy
- Please note that Audio Copy and Paste is only available after a paid upgrade.
From the OhPeeWon forum:
Wanted to share a short 5 song freak-folk experiment using only the OP-1 4 track. The songs are very improvisational and are meant to explore the immediacy and playfulness of the OP-1. It’s a free download and will be available for a limited time as I will take them off my sound cloud in a week. 🙂
Not really indicative of OP-1 stuff, but interesting to think that this was made on the OP-1.
Make’s best Arduino projects of 2012. I thought I’d post it as there are a couple of musical items in there.
Some very useful information about the upcoming sequencer. More here.
