The beauty of sequenced sound

April 17, 2011 — 1 Comment

While perusing my friend Rob’s tumbl, I saw this wonderful sound matrix program called “ToneMatrix”. Since then, I have seen this reposted many times on tumblr and Facebook. If for nothing more than archival sake (in case the original URL ever goes down), I’m posting/hosting it here.

Its pretty easy: Simply click on some squares to get the music started. You can hold down the mouse and drag across the screen. Click on a square again to turn it off. Press the ‘space bar’ to clear. You can copy/paste your current pattern by right clicking.

The link to the original page is here:

Original text from the site:

Simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16step sequencer. Each triggered step causes a force on the underlaying wave-map, which makes it more cute.

Based on the AudioTool engine thus no sources, I am sorry.

Press SPACE key to clear. Right-Click for Copy&Paste.

More info on my blog.

A linux web hosting administrator, a professional production sound man, and a renegade cop without nothing left to lose.... Ok, that last part is made up. In all seriousness, my passion in life is to help people; whether that be with help running their sites or with their productions. The name 'Boom Shadow' was given to me by a great group of filmmakers called Star Wipe Films. back in 2005 and has been with me since. I hope my site is helpful to you, and if there's something you need, drop me a line!
