About

Last week I found beats from jstrait. I was just smashed around about the idea of an commandline music generator tool.

The bad part of the story: I am the most uncreative dude alive. These phrase made me thinking...

If this is true, it is probably possible that a randomized script makes better music than me.

Usage

Copy randombeats.bash to your music directory, execute the script and make the txt file with beats. It just generates a yaml file for beats :)

git clone http://github.com/noqqe/randombeats
cp randombeats/randombeats.bash /path/to/music
./randombeats.bash > randomsong.txt
beats randomsong.txt
open randomsong.wav

And for your own fun do:

 ./randombeats.bash > rnd.txt && beats rnd.txt && open rnd.wav 

Technical

  • Sometimes its a little bit to fast... for now i havent found the optimal speed range for generating good music
