I’ve recently been working on a tool that mimics Abletons clip follow actions.
Just finished it and tested most things. Before I go to bed I wanted to push it out,
so that others maybe have fun playing with it.
We start out with a nice gif animation of the workflow:
This only shows how to generate random continuations of that simple bassdrum.
But imagine expanding that to other parts of a drum pattern. Just from two
variations of each drum pattern part you can create a very varied drum
loop easily. Same with melodies. It’s a great way to get ideas and fill
holes in your arrangement or sections with at least something else than silence.
If I find the time and motivation I might put together a more throughout
demo of the tool. I also need to collect more experience with it myself, so consider
it an alpha/beta status.
Now some text from the readme file:
Please also read the Full README, it lists
the known bugs, recent changes and also poses as manual for the tool.
