Sonic Pi - inspired by envkid's work with SPi that I discovered this week or last week or whenever it was. Wanted to give it a try. Cool mcgool stuff. It's nice that it is really a code-based sequencer more than a sound design tool (at least from my basic exploration). In that sense it is somewhat like TidalCycles but with a slightly less weird language syntax? I dunno. I heart tidal though.

Named after the Terry Goodkind novel that is holding up my monitor after a studio rearrangement.

Cool! Is that Ruby? Loving the ambience here; this is super nice work.

Fun sounds.  Very abstract but cohesive. Nice work!

Thanks! I'm not sure what the relationship to Ruby is - structurally yes, it is Ruby, but because it's built either on or with Ruby I'm not sure how that works. Thanks so much for your comment(s).
