It occurs to me that in order to get any kind of feedback, JIG would need:

1. A reply system.
2. People trying to reply.

So far, I like a song these people made.

Personally I think these sound better if you don't totally overload them. Here's a few simpler ones with that in mind.

The second one reminds me of music for a cavern-themed level of a game or something.

Trying for something slower and pulsier this time around. I like this one best of the three I've done so far.

FUN!!! I never use these gadgets because they seem a little too complex for my short attention span, but this is great! Here is my first attempt:

I like the idea of turning a drawing into sound, so for this one I quickly scribbled a picture of a tree with some stick-birds and clouds, using each instrument as a color - I drew clouds with the tone matrix, a tree trunk with the frogster, grass and tree leaves with the avatar (and when I say that I drew, I mean that I scribbled quickly). Anyhow, though it's not the most awesome sound this gadget has ever produced, I think it came out quite nice. http://inudge.net/inudge#/g1o

Alright! This is quite fun to play with. The limitation of 16 beats adds some nice challange: Try to makes something that doesn't get old after only a couple repetitions.

Keep.One.Step.Ahead September 25, 2009 10:59 PM

So I've been playing around with this toy and started recording its sound output, trying to capture some lateral movement out of the toy that was only intended to create loops. Experimenting, I recorded a "song," of me using Nudge on the fly, ramping up the intensity of the track similar to Manuel Göttsching's E2-E4. My track became about overpowering the processes of the little gizmo and my computer, thus causing the track to sort of fly apart.

I'm not sure of the legality of distributing the file, so I acquiesce to Jay if he thinks there would be a legal concern; however, I think this falls within fair use.

Anyway, if anyone wants to hear the track I made (it is around 14 minutes long, but should be interesting to anyone as fascinated with the toy as I was), just reply here.

Just a little experiment seeing what an X in every part would sound like. I think it sounds a little bit Oriental.

To be absolutely honest, I just went through each instrument and randomly spread my mouse across the page. Then I removed about half the notes. Then I slowed it all down a bit.
