Warner Music signs Endel, maker of an algorithm/app that generates ambient-style music: https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/27/18283084/warner-music-algorithm-signed-ambient-music-endel
Didn't Warner learn from Selected Ambient Works Volume II* back in '94?
* SAW II famously was one of the worst-selling ambient releases in Warner Bros history, so much so that Warner issued an internal memo that all ambient music signings/releases must have prior management approval, so the story goes
Just bought this and its fucking amazing!! can create microtuning,custom tunings for either sodtsynth or hardware with MIDI so easily DIRECTLY IN DAW!!!
Alt-tuner is a DAW plug-in that retunes almost every midi keyboard or softsynth. It runs on PCs, macs and Linux/Wine machines. Click here to buy it.
Alt-tuner combines ease of use with powerful capabilities:
Recreate historical tunings like pythagorean, meantone and well-temperaments.
Stretch your piano tuning -- create your own Railsback curves.
Explore ethnic tunings like Turkish, Arabic, Persian, Indian and Indonesian.
Investigate experimental tunings like 22 notes to the octave.
Or just use the adaptive just intonation feature to make "normal" music sound smoother!
You don't need to know tuning theory to get started. Well-chosen defaults get you playing right away. Alt-tuner is novice-friendly and encourages "stumbling onto" new tunings. Alt-tuner uses a graphical point-and-click interface, making it very easy to explore. You're moving sliders and clicking on things, not typing in commands and numbers. Alt-tuner is to other tuning software like Windows is to MS-DOS. However as you explore alt-tuner, many advanced mathematical concepts are demonstrated in a way that can be immediately seen and heard. The manual even includes a 120-page primer on tuning theory (read the outline here). Alt-tuner is so easy to use that it doubles as an educational tool!
hey hey all. random question. does anyone make any sort of midi filter or effects that are stand alone, or not ran through a computer? like any arpeggios or anything? or any sort of chord filtering or stuff like that? im pretty satisfied with anything software based i have messed with in these regards, but i am on the hunt for something small and stand alone that is not a laptop with a interface, to integrate into my all hardware live setup. i did some searching, but i really could not find anything. i figure if anyone knows, its you rad peeps here :)
Hey guys! For the last couple of months I have collected and curated lots IDM MIDIs from a variety of sources and locations, hosting them all on a website with a bunch of recreations and links to the MIDI file downloads. I plan to do the 4 big IDM acts, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Autechre and Squarepusher. Due to the abundance of Aphex Twin MIDI files, I have finished that section and am ready to release it while working on the other artists, as well as constant aesthetic overhauls and improvements. It's a very basic early version at the moment, but I hope this grows into a project that really acts as a legitimate resource in dissecting the music that we all love, and to sate the curiosity and desire of anybody that wants to know what goes into writing and composing some of the greatest tunes in Electronic Music.
The site is split into the albums, and while a lot of these files you may already have, there are many exclusive MIDIs to be downloaded, such as the start of "I'm Self Employed", "Girl Boy Song" and the very fresh "Umil-25" Lead and Bass. I have a dedicated person working on creating MIDIs of full tracks, he made the Syro and Soundcloud MIDIs that were posted on Reddit and discussed on the Richard (MIDI) James thread earlier this week, aswell as our very own Scarbo who contributed some A+ piano MIDIs to this site. I will constantly be adding them as I receive or make them, and if you have any tracks, MIDIs, ideas or bugs you have discovered, you can send it in with an email link on the artist home page. Thank you for your attention, and I hope you enjoy the site.
