Cute musical time-waster. Answered


I just "stumbled" on this sweet little tool for composing and playing musical loops.

Pitch is on the vertical axis, time across the horizontal.

I don't have any way to record it - if you copy this pattern, it sounds like a thumb piano.

if you want to go whole hog, you can check out audiotool it's a sound lab in your browser! plus, the tone matrix (as kite linked to) is in there, and it's really fun to pass through a fuzz filter

also, on the tone matrix, if you make a matrix, then right click and choose copy you get the matrix numbers. then if you want to copy someone else's tone matrix you just copy those numbers and paste them back into the tone

sort of the ibles robot

the matrix used in the full audio tool is MUCH larger, you can make more detailed images

This is also awesome... It's more random!

put circles inside of circles if you want to see neat on that one

Wonderful!!! THANK YOU KITEMAN!!

The lower notes sound like a glockenspiel.

I've bookmarked the site, and I'm going to email it as far and wide as I can... (especially for my nephews and nieces :-D)

Here are my first 4 efforts, if anyone's interested:

An interesting pattern that forms a sort of forms an optical audio illusion:
