    Computer creates a music.

    Hi everyone!
    In addition to programming i create music. I love 8-bit music that was in old console like NES or computers like ZX-Spectrum.
    Long ago i was doing the virtual composer program that creates 8-bit music, but didn't finish it. I even published the links to the demo tracks (here and here). Now i've finished it also i've added the my synthesizers into it and the presets banks. This program is written in VB6.
    Of course it isn't really music (due to "buggy" algorithm that i had created long ago when i can't created a music and I badly programmed), but you can "play" with them. Sometimes it create quite not-bad tracks .
    In order to create new track you should think up the track name and set them to Name field. If this field is empty it is filled with random number. Considering the name program creates new track (it calculates hash value that uses as seed of the random generator), i.e. the name of the track identifies the track. Tempo field sets the music tempo. Right click on the track - open the synthesizer properties. You can change parameters to change sound. Left click on a pattern - show pattern. I don't implement any errors handlers therefore you shouldn't enter "bad" values (like 0 for tempo) because program can crashes.
    Program also can hangs (due to "buggy" algorithm) when you create track.
    Have fun!

    Re: Computer creates a music.

    What kind of algoritme did you use to generate melody lines?
    Without using random notes?

    Just being curious and I don't have any knowledge about music patterns..

    That's the most awesomely, half-hearted endorsement I've seen in a long time.

    But why did you post this in Chit-Chat? Seems like this is more of a Utilities thread, to me.

    Agree, but its kinda off topic fi you think of it...

    Can you tell the difference between Bach and RoboBach?

    Sorry. I just searched a flame thread but not found.
    Arnoutdv, i use simple algorithm. I'm working on the new version 2 that uses other algorithm (more complex). The current version allows to make the skeleton of song and then you can improve track in any DAW by exporting a track to MIDI.
    I want to stress - anyone who wants to use a melody from generator can make it without any restrictions as well change it in DAW. All the songs that are generated by TrickComposer belong to people and are free.
    We have the group in VK where we collect most of the interested track. Anyone can post tracks.

    Agreed, although I was thinking of a CodeBand thread.

    (Ha .. how's that for a typo .. should be CodeBank)

    LOL, it is good. It creates some songs that are better than some commercial songs.
