Sleeping Blue Fish

By Nuelijarma on November 27, 2018 6:48 pm

This time I tried something different. I saw people starting to experiment with Orca, so I decided I would try too, and I liked it!

However, I had to learn many things at the same time: connecting stuff with Jack, recording audio, and using a synth. A friend suggested ZynAddSubFX, so I went with it, but I am not really happy with this choice. I want to dedicate time to this new "tracker", not a complex synth software too!

So here is the result of me experimenting with all this. It is quite rough. It is quite short too (but at this point I should get used to it).

I really want to dedicate more time to Orca; I would like to reach this live music programing level I think.

Technical note: I had a hard time figuring out how to generate "slow" outputs: something like "C", but that increases every x frame, not every frame. I was delighted when I found how to do it!
