Chronopolis 5k Beatfox - CSound Rhythm Generation Device
This is a free Csound generative beat tool - part of a larger compositional environment I'm building.
It will constantly create perfectly looped rhythms that can easily be dropped into a program like Ableton Live.
Leave it running all night, and you'll wake up with hundreds of loops in your folder!
It sounds similar to a Nord Drum or modular analog drums. It can also produce some 808-ish sounds.
Here are some audio examples: https://soundcloud.com/micahfrank/sets/chronopolis5k-beatfox
• All you need is a Csound compiler like CSound QT https://csoundqt.github.io/
• Load up the Beatfox.csd file, hit "Run" (command + R) and watch it go.
Disclaimer: This software is not thoroughly tested. Although it works fine on my system, Csound can have "temperamental" moments. Please try it out first with your speakers/headphones turned down.
• Offline rendering
• Triplets and 32nd notes
• curve random parameters
• More accurate density control
• Option to create more repetitive beats
