Music Hackday Toronto 2013 - Web based tap pad. (See native iOS version here)
Made by Dmitri Cherniak (@dmitric)
The front end uses LESS and Coffeescript:
lessc --yui-compress less/style.less > static/css/style.min.css
cake build cake minify cake push
Backend is a simple tornado server, just run
pip install -r requirements.txt python tap-pad.py (--debug=True if you want debug mode)
Just tap on the grid and get started.
Generate interesting musical patterns using basic rules of cellular automatons.
You'd be surprised how beautiful some of these "random" yet 100% reproducible patterns are. Its sounds totally unique, but it's completely deterministic.
Here's an example: http://tap-pad.herokuapp.com/100151560522043100242
PS. I read somewhere that Torontonians are statistically more likely to enjoy Drake, so I made a little something just for you here
There's also a native iOS version here
