Over the winter break I’ve been spending some time working on my livecoding/algorave setup in SuperCollider. Here’s a quick practice run, this is how things are going at the moment.
The most recent idea here is the \warp synth, a granulator slowly reading through a choice of soundfiles. In this particular run, I think the .choose threw up a fragment of a Stokowski Bach transcription https://archive.org/details/J.S.BACH-OrchestralTranscriptions-NEWTRANSFER and perhaps a bit of the theme tune from The IT Crowd as well. A nice background wash of sound behind the rhythmic stuff. For the latter, the samples in the first half of the video are various from here http://machines.hyperreal.org/manufacturers/ and in the second half of the run, after I exectue ~changesamples, from here http://theremin.music.uiowa.edu/MIS.html and here http://www.philharmonia.co.uk/explore/sound_samples.
The synths I’m using and my initialisation file is up on GitHub at https://github.com/tedthetrumpet/supercollider.
