Back to my generator.

I improved the drums with the algorithm I used at the end of 2016, so now it's good to go.

The bass is still there of course.

Next time it's back to the leads, which will always not sound right.

Oooh, procedural audio, this is cool!

Hrm. Not hearing any melodicia.

Call and response. Neat!

I didn't use any, but I'll use it this week. It's basically a cycle with me.

I like how the melody shifts up in the middle of song for no reason apparently. What's the input for this generator?

It's procedurally generated, it takes no input. The shift is there to, I guess, surprise the listeners into thinking there's something happening.

So now I have a million questions but I will take it one question per generated song smile

You might want to hurry up then, because I don't plan on doing this every week.

This sounds like the soundtrack to the robot apocalypse (robocalypse?).  Cool stuff.

It is, I did it all 2016 too.

That just kind of happened.

That's what I was going for. I learned how to make it sound good in 2016 so I'm just porting stuff over at this point.

Generated melodies can sound like nothing else... code doing its thing, free of social pressure to output something liked by the masses (unless the coder put some rigid rules to make it generate "pop"), and free of the rationalizing human mind. Great way to experiment IMO!

I know, right? Wait until I actually add melodies, you'll be blown away.

This ML based generation is way more interesting than the random seed value thing I'm doing, if only because there appears to be some semblance of through-lines or motifs. Reminds me of the stuff one can make with meadowphysics.

It's not ML, but it does use MML. It's procedural generation, at most it takes a seed and generates a song out of that.
No learning for my program.

Ah my bad. Still really cool!

Glad to see you keep working at your generator, very cool beats again this week  smile Curious to hear the upcoming one with the leads!

It's a new one actually.

Very cool to see procedurally generated tunes here, this is very successful imo.
