I ran into a lot of dead ends trying to make the lead pattern work how I wanted, got burnt on it, and decided I had better things to do with my time. So here's a little loop with some kind of neat sound design and some pretty basic boring algo-comp. Hope you enjoy somewhat.

I like these synths, some pretty stuff. Indeed some kind of neat sound design in there. Zings and blings, tasty. Algo comp? Funz.

Thanks man! When I do SC I like to make just 2 or 3 synths so the lead, hi hat, and snare are the same synth engine. The pad is really similar to the one I used in that longer SC track I did a couple months back.

Yeah algorithmic composition. Using the term pretty loosely here, where I basically made melody and beat with a shitload of random numbers and a little addition and subtraction big_smile The nice thing is you get a ton of variation even when the loop is just running along doing its thing.

Very cool in a glitchy way... like electronic popcorn!

I'd love to see the code for this. I'm hoping to get this level of musical beat making with SC (rather than the, for me, easier spatial/abstract stuff). Awesome work.

Thank you very much, that is very kind of you! I just emailed it to you using the email feature on here. Let me know if you don't get it. I would post it on Github but it's pretty messy, hehe smile
