Audioshape Sequencer is modeled after Tangible Sequencer and originally inspired by Nicolas Clavaud.This application works with a mouse and/or multitouch table (touchlib/tuio simulator or other TUIO program).
There are three main things to know about the program.
- There is the shape (square),
- signal (transparent orange shape),
- and sensor (Blue dot on square. Pink when activated).
How it works/How to use:
When a signal comes in contact with a sensor on another shape (square), it creates a “connection.” Move around the squares (by dragging or clicking/pressing) to create different connections. Same colored squares have the same sounds. Double click a square to play itself and it’s connected shapes. To rotate using the mouse, click and hold a square while using the “up/down” arrows on the keyboard. To rotate on a touch table, use two fingers. To make the signal bigger or smaller, click/press and drag the signal (orange shape).
Currently you can switch between two instrument groups (percussion and piano). The bpm slider controls the speed of playback.
Here’s a video of an older version:
Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions and/or problems. I welcome any feature requests!
Here’s some thoughts on future features:
- More sounds library/multiple instruments at once on stage
- Add/remove more shapes
- Shape for rests so you can insert “rests” into the music
- More shapes that perform different functions or have different signals
- Sync On/Off toggle
- Volume Control
Currently, I’m only releasing the software. No source yet since there’s a couple things that needs to be fixed first. I am all still working on all my other software so expect updates soon!
*Note: I’m including only the swf. Make sure to set the security settings so you’re able to connect to FLOSC.
