Music Mouse

Music Mouse is an algorithmic musical composition software developed by Laurie Spiegel. It’s ported to web browsers by Tero Parviainen.

Spiegel’s best known and most widely used software, “Music Mouse – An Intelligent Instrument” (1986) is for Macintosh, Amiga and Atari computers. The “intelligent instrument” name refers to the program’s built-in knowledge of chord and scale convention and stylistic constraints. Automating these processes allows the user to focus on other aspects of the music in real time.

You can route the MIDI output (to your soundcard for instance).

HY-ESG


HY-ESG is a free gate sequencer (aka a trance gate effect) with a twist. It uses a Euclidean sequencer instead of the standard step sequencer seen in most other trance gate plugins. You’ll probably find that HY-ESG is more fun and inspiring to use than your current favorite gate sequencer effect. Download at Bedroon Producers.

Music SDP

The Music and Sound Design Platform (also referred to as Music_SDP and MSDP) is free and open-source software built for electronic and electroacoustic music performance, production, improvisation, and experimentation. Music_SDP is a DAPE, or Digital Audio Performance Environment, functioning similarly to a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), but designed with a special modular structure built for live performances. MSDP provides a non-linear, infinitely expandable, totally hackable, easy-to-use interface for sound design that encourages and rewards exploration and experimentation. It is a great platform for beginners and professionals alike, and provides all the tooling and control needed to make wild new sounds, build complex sonic projects, and execute flawless performances.
