I made a command-line tool to assist me with writing polyrhythmic drum parts

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • polyrhythmix

    Polyrhythmically-inclinded Midi Drum generator

  • Marathon

    A microrhythm generator. (by davetremblay)

    I'll have to play around with this. Here's something similar I found on GitHub a while ago: https://github.com/davetremblay/Marathon

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Tidal

    Pattern language

  • tune

    Make xenharmonic music and create synthesizer tuning files for microtonal scales.

    Very excited to see this. It's very much a tool I would use, excited to give it a spin after work tonight. I also look forward to reading the code.

    Other cool music tools I've seen implemented in rust:

    * glicol - https://glicol.org/

    * tune - https://github.com/Woyten/tune

    A while back I wanted to make some tools to aid in composition and was using rust. Very partially baked, but a fun pet project to learn the language with. Generated Just Intonation pitch lattices based on my research of Ben Johnston's compositional approach. https://github.com/jcpst/johnston

  • glicol

    Graph-oriented live coding language and music/audio DSP library written in Rust

    Very excited to see this. It's very much a tool I would use, excited to give it a spin after work tonight. I also look forward to reading the code.

    Rust utilities for working with Just Intonation tuning systems

  • SuperDirt

    Tidal Audio Engine

    Tidalcycles actually runs SuperCollider as its sound backend, through the SuperDirt library: https://github.com/musikinformatik/SuperDirt/

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • strudel

    Web-based environment for live coding algorithmic patterns, incorporating a faithful port of TidalCycles to JavaScript

    It's recently gotten a great deal easier to play with thanks to Strudel, a JS variant.

    Strudel REPL: https://strudel.tidalcycles.org/

    One interesting feature of Tidalcycles is Euclidean Sequences, where various 'natural' ways of distributing X notes over Y durations are easily expressed:
