Subjective: Some simple Techno

Image
Made this about six months ago. The plan was to release this with some other songs as part of an LP, mostly focused around Techno and House. In the end, I lost much inspiration for the particular styles I was aiming towards, but I still finished some songs, so I'll be posting them shortly. Here's one of them, accompanied by trippy graphics. Here's a download link: https://mega.nz/#!b8MEnI6K!0Vj_64OCvPkTmnBDhWW-WpiOv5D9Z1jv4nKNdQ5aICU

Cheilyctis: A short test in Monarda Temperament

Monarda Temperament, a device created by Scott Dakota on February, 2018, is a nice just intonation temperament allowing for a lush yet darker sound. After it was voted "temperament of the month" in March, 2018 (by this Facebook group), I was eager to try it out, and I took advantage of the opportunity to try a nicely fitting lush yet darker sound in my track. I ended up with something quite minimalistic, but quite nice-sounding. You can hear it below. Well, you'd be able to hear it, if your browser supported it. Permalink in case that fails: https://mega.nz/#!rkU2iBgS!P-NB5ngzK84tZc9Z9YfQZb1UIgo4GhyRUGmKSTdfwMoFor those who'd like to try this temperament out, here's the original Scala file. !

JSynth Documentation

This is a documentation for JSynth, an online "synthesizer" I'm currently working on. It explains how the JSON-based format works, and it includes a changelog at the very end.FormatJSynth's format is based on JSON, which you can read on here. However, reading its documentation is not required to understand JSynth, although it is recommended.The basic concept goes as follows. JSynth stores melodies in terms of successive chords. Each chord contains various channels, and these channels are of two types: Notes or holding channels. Notes cancel the current sound being played through the channel and may or not play a new one (acting also as rests), holding channels instead leave it unchanged. Extra properties that modify any element of the song may then be set.Every JSynth file begins and ends with { and } braces. As follows are the values to be filled inside them, in alphabetical and then hierarchical order:bpmdefault_volnotes(Array)Requiredchannels(Array)RequiredfreqReq…

EDO tester widget

Taken from my previous article. Now plays in triangle waves, since (as I've learned since) the harmonic overtones play a huge role in determining whether an interval is harmonic or not (something that pure sine waves don't have). Mess around with the code, if you dare. Test EDO Rational approximation margin of error (±): mO EDO: Root pitch: Hz Number of approximations:

I made this Techno song quite a while ago. I released it as part of a new label between some members of a group I'm in. Objectively not the best, but I'll be bringing much better soon. Here's a download link: https://mega.nz/#!3o02WTSR!gAWfsgyd81qPFYEWYXyZYdhQ6fItV_75wXQ3NXjTJ3g
