These minimal instruments will have you feeling like a pro.
It’s Throwback Thursday, and this project is still just as beautiful and fun as it was the day it came into the world!
There are three experiments in all: The first, a cycling beat machine that you can play with your keyboard (and for the musically challenged, it will make sure your beats are in time).
The second, a triangular arpeggiator, allows you to warm and change the sounds in 2d space.
And thirdly, what could best be described as a wobble machine, which gets more and more addictive the more you play it.
Martin really spends a solid amount of time making all of his projects a visual delight.
On the front end, all these instruments look to be made the same—a canvas layer providing some elegant interactions (especially on mobile).
On the back end, they’re a little different. The beat machine uses samples that are played on the beats as the loop cycles over and over itself.
The arpeggiator and wobble machine both use Tone.JS to create sounds on the fly straight in the browser!
