Exercise in Melodize

By Devieus on March 7, 2018 12:50 pm

This time I added the melody back as it was in a way that makes it much easier to tweak. Basically, the whole melody algorithm is almost separated (not entirely though, but note lengths is a thing for the future); at least I can tweak the algorithm whenever and could even implement a Markov chain if I so wanted. Perhaps I will someday.

Afterwards I did some tweaking with VSCL, it's quite easy and does the job just fine.

I keep picturing pixelated karatekas having a go at it. Digging your procedural explorations smile

I think that's because the lead only uses eighths. While it's nice that it does that, I personally prefer some variety in that.

Just the right amount of reverb to the music. Makes the song 3D. A little bit AUTECHRE going on here.

Gotta have reverb, it's the salt of the music, it instantly makes a song sound better. And just like salt, too much is no good either.

I press the run program button and this comes out. That's the better part of it at least.

Cool, that's what I was going for.

It's still pretty small compared to the 2016 one though.

Now I have to look that up.

So I have. I can tell the semblance a bit for sure.

Very good salt analogy.  Enjoyable melody with a good dose of crunch on the beats.

Crunchy and salty, a noise wave will do that.

It still isn't. These are just the default instruments Macrotunes gives you, and there's like 5 of them, so most of the quality comes from post. And the algorithm of course.
