Random7 now on Launchpad

Here is an update to my Random7 program that allows control and feedback with the Novation Launchpad.  For everyone new to Random7 a short description is Random7 is a generative music application that randomly picks midi notes and velocities in a scale you choose.  For more information about Random7 here is a link to older posts about this application and some music made by Random7.  Below is a picture diagram of the different controls on the Launchpad,  click on the picture to get a closer view.


Here is a quick video demonstrating the Launchpad control of Random7.

Hardware version of Random7

November 16th, 2009 2 comments

A couple of months I took my MAX/MSP code for Random7 and rewrote so I could embed it into a hardware version.  Random7 Hardware Version 1 (R7H) is a very basic version of the Random7 software.  The core element of R7H is still the same,  the program randomly picks from 7 different midi notes.  As of now the key R7H is preset to the key of A Major, and the only control is a potentiometer that controls the speed of R7H.  Output for R7H is a midi port, an on/off switch, and there is also a red led the flashes everytime a note is sent.  The some of the next additions I plan to the hardware are a midi input to provide midi sync options, a small lcd to provide useful information such as tempo and key,  and allow user to pick from any diatonic major key.  The microcontroller I am using for this is the arduino built into a d.i. box housing.  Here are some pictures.

Random7 Updated…..

So I finally got Random7 built for Mac and PC.  You may notice I did update the look of the program as well.  If you want to hear what you can do with Random7 here are some recordings of what we are doing with it.  These are done with one instance of Random7  triggering multiple soft synths in Ableton Live.

Christmas + MAX/MSP = Random7

December 26th, 2008 No comments


So this holiday season I was gifted my very own copy of MAX/MSP, and it is sweet.  While I was playing around with it today, as I was hanging out with the family, I created this fun little application I’m calling Random7.  It is basically a 8 step sequencer that outputs midi by randomly selecting from the 7 notes in the various scales pictured above, and also randomly selects the velocity of each of the notes.  The layout is very simple, the drop down menu lets you select your scale, noteout lets you choose your midi i/o, the start/stop button does just that, the knob adjusts speed, and you can click on any of the red spots to trigger a note manually.  It produces great background music, I like to have it trigger one of my piano soft synths in Ableton via midi yoke.  Now this is my first program written in MAX so it might not be the most effient app yet, but I do plan on digging back into it later on, so if you have any feedback it would be much appreciated.  Also I am new to the building an application process in MAX, so I believe this version will only work on windows systems.  I’ll be posting the Mac version as soon as I figure out how to make it.  Enjoy.
