Start watching around seven minutes in, where the creator shows the real potential of this software. The concept is basically that time is shown on the Z-axis, in 3D space.
Perhaps not a good way to create a track from grounds up, but could be an interesting overview of the entire song.
Saw this on the CDM blog, If I understand well it’s mainly based on automation (a la Audiomulch?) and shaping sounds in a modular environment. The 3D view is cool though (it’s more eye candy to me actually ).
Very intriguing and unique concept. Will definitely check out this software. Now, the video doesn’t really cover much of how you input/control/play your instrument, maybe this is the stuff he’s still working on?
I see the envelope editor being used a lot, but if the actual note sequencer is also a mouse-driven business, all I can say is thank god for rewire
Oh and I almost forgot, there’s also a possibility for anamorphosis in 3D music sequencers. Maybe its a bit much imagination wise and the “looking to fill the void” spirit is trumping the practical musician side of me.
paid him 3 USD for the song, because i truly appreciate his efforts. this looks really, really cool, and i’m not talking about the 3d-stuff per se. the 3d is part eye-candy, part a different view on song composition and structure, and i think it could definitely have its uses. most of all i love it when some dude just makes this, and it makes me want to support, and i get a really cool song for it.
the thing i loved most about this, and the thing that makes this, in part, a feature request for me, is this:
I like the visualization of the automation envelopes, crossing the modular patch, making the eye candy functional, but I’m not sure I could translate my music in such spaghetti mess, be easy to read, navigate through it. Will give this one a test run whenever it reaches a release.
