Sound Matrix


The Sound Matrix was a clever bit of flash that was mailed to me some time back. I later discovered that the file was originally composed by Andre Michelle. As per original instructions “Press SPACE key to clear. Right-Click for Copy & Paste to your blog, happy days, good time, comment if you LIKE!”.

    On the original creator’s site for the tone matrix you can copy/paste/save your patterns by right clicking; it creates a list of numbers that represent the pattern and you can share it with others so they can paste it into theirs and listen to what you made. Really cool!

    Please make it more flexible – give us options to change the tempo, to change the size of the grid, the pitch. Make it an app! This is the only musical instrument I’ve ever been able to play!

    If you were to make this an iPad app, add a function where you could record songs, and perhaps change instrument sounds, I would most certainly pay money for it. What you have here is far more than just an entertaining little internet app, it’s a tremendous learning tool. Add features on a tablet app where one could change the tempo and mode, and perhaps have other instrument sounds, etc. Again, I’d pay money.

    At any rate, thank you.

    I love this, wish there was a way to save the music created.

    If you added longer soundboards, tempo control, ability to save it would be great.
    An idea that I had while I was playing was being able to make the “Chorus” Section of a song on one sound board, save it, then create the “Bridge” of another. You could then label the first as “A” and the other “B”. In another part of the program you could say “play A twice then B once then A again then go on to play C. A B A C and it would procede to play those sound boards in order.
    This would help keep track of music that was playing.
    I loved it though, a lot of fun and addicting

    I teach topics of rhythm and meter to undergraduate and graduate music students, and it would be neat to use this in my teaching. It would be very interesting to have a grid that is 12 or 24 squares, simply because while 16 can only be divided by multiples of 2, 12 and 24 have factors of both 3 and 2, and this would allow some interesting rhythmic-metric possibilities. Do let me know if that’s possible, and thanks!

    Has no one noticed that these machines costs thousands of pounds/dollars, its not something you can just whack on an android phone… have a look at what it is before you go “Wow this is not just an entertaining little app” of course it isnt, otherwise we would all have one by now, It wont be an ipad app until the ipad is actually a powerful machine not a little gimmicky web browser like it is now

    This is pretty cool! Would be a cool app to integrate with a prog like Fruity Loops. :D

    If I didn’t have to work in a little while, I would totally get stoned and play with this for at least an hour.
