Create beautiful music effortlessly - and discover your talent as a budding composer! Choose one of the tunes that come with the program or choose or play a short musical phrase of a few notes, and hear it transformed into an intricate tracery of music. The music is fractal which means it is highly structured on many layers - but natural sounding too, like bird song, or the sound of the wind.
Any tuning is possible; no need to restrict your creativity to the equal tempered twelve tone system or even tunings that repeat at an octave. Try authentic historical temperaments with tunings for keyboards from Bach or Mozart's time. Try tunings for Indonesian Gamelans, or Indian music with drones. Try modern exotic tunings such as non octave scales, or musical geometries with highly symmetrical floating chord patterns.
Explore the effects of instrumentation, in an envionment where melody making is effortless. Suitable for complete newbies to composing - there is no need to be able to read music notation. Just choose one of the fractal tunes, vary the instruments, and vary the parameters to make your own new tunes.
Play directly in any of the tunings yourself with a music keyboard. Retune your own compositions to any tuning. Play melodies and chords on the PC keyboard - with the space bar as a sustain pedal, and the mouse scroll wheel as a modulation wheel :-). Play legato style (if your synth supports it) in microtonal tunings in the same way you do in twelve equal.
Play rhythms, long bars, and polyrhythms. Enter any chord progression as text and play it in any tuning. Make fibonacci rhythms which are highly structured, but never repeat exactly. A mouse theremin which can also play sliding chords. Send tunes to your friends as musical e-cards.
Built in wave shape player to play mathematically exact waves. CSound support. Much more.
The program comes with extensive help, an on-line wiki, tutorials, FAQ, example midi clips and tunes, etc.
fractal, algo-comp, tune, microtonal, scale, composing, midi, melody, world music, gamelan, sitar, koto
Csound support - use CSound instruments just by selecting them from a drop list. New Wave Shape Player - plays mathematically defined shapes. Major overhaul in the user layout. Can retune multiple midi in devices simultaneously to multiple midi outs. Fractal tunes and rhythms are scriptable.
