Random melody generator?

Post by pwoehl » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:14 am

I was trying to create something for those days I need inspiration to light the creative fire. Using chords, arpacheSx and midi modifiers CAN work somewhat but I was wondering if there is a better way?

There is such a piece of software: https://www.pluginboutique.com/products/2689 (Random Riff Generator)

But it's Ableton Live only. So by the time you've bought the lite version of Live plus the plug in you'll be looking at about £100-110.

Well, pretty much everything had to be started over from scratch in 2001 or so, so they made choices... I suppose there are people who could still use it if they have a machine running XP or Mac OS 7.5.

I can see myself *wasting* a few hours on my old XP installation sometime......seem to recall the IPS as being weird but strangely addictive.

Yeah! What came out of the IPS wasn't necessarily great on its own but it was ... interesting!
Then you could use your mastermind to sculpt some new song out of it.
You could also just let the result drift off into the universe and be content with having attempted to think out of the box for a few hours!
Mildly provocative ... and definitely not for everybody, but I loved it! 8-)

The Wolfram one is crazy, you can get some ODD tunes out of it if you play around with the settings.
