of a Musical Generator
A Musical Generator is a shareware program that creates music and MIDI files from fractals, pictures,
text and numbers. Lots of fractals can be used and each fractal can be adjusted in infinite
ways to create music. Also you can turn bitmaps into music. You can use the names of
yourself and your friend to see whether they sound good together.
And you can insert your tax figures, model results, spread sheets or whatever
numeric source in order to create music.
Starting a Musical Generator
On top are several tabs from which you can choose a fractal. The fractal you click upon appears in the left pane. We call that a vector. There you can edit its properties and dragging it to one of the aspect buttons on the left.
Assigning notes to tracks
By dragging a vector to an aspect button it is assigned to that aspect for a specific track.
Plotting a vector
The plotter can help you in customizing your own fractals, as here with the Mandelbrot set.
The Piano Roll
The piano roll helps you to evaluate your music.
The MIDI messages view gives you insight how exactly a Musical Generator interprets your music.
Editing a vector
Each fractal has an editor so you can change its properties.
