VCVRackTutorial: The Turing Machine

The patch file: http://cornwarning.com/xfer/VCV/TuringMachineExample.vcv Audio Example: http://cornwarning.com/xfer/VCV/TuringMachineExample.mp3 The two implementations of the Turing Machine Sequencer — in the case of this patch, the one from the Skylights plugin — are not immediately understandable without doing some reading of manuals, which is never anyone’s favorite activity.

By now, people who care about the music of Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin, know about how he dumped 175 (and counting) unreleased songs on Soundcloud.

More Granularity — Christopher Hipgrave’s Ambient Software

Christopher Hipgrave’s Ambient is a piece of software distributed by Audiobulb. Ambient is based around granular synthesis of any audio file.
