sounds really good
how do you come up with the rhythms?
Everything I've been doing with MMR for rhythm and sequencing is (what i imagine is) super basic stuff in Max. For this one, as well as 16&16B, i'm using a step sequencer for the drums, and a markov chain on the synth (c minor, but it's almost irrelevant cause the melody rarely comes through). The variation comes from tempo multipliers, and weighted probability on a set of BPM tempos.
Some of the others like 11,13,14 had some variation on pitch and decay of the drum hits as well. MMR 2 - 15 used probability on the actual time in milliseconds between notes rather than using a step sequencer.
You'll notice with MMR that there's a lot of micro variation, but at the macro level it's essentially static. I'm working on fixing that. Or I'm supposed to be but instead i just keep jamming (as if i'm still banging on pots and pans cause I'm too lazy to put my new drum set together).
