Slicing Odd Beats
(downloads at page Slice//Jockey)
One of my musical wet dreams is a real time beat slicer that will slice up and shuffle-replay any type of acoustic input material on the fly. Of course it is easy to fill a circular buffer and replay segments of it at different speeds and direction. But I want to carefully slice the stuff, not randomly chop it, so I need a decent analyser to identify coherent segments of sound.
My analyser should specialise in odd sounds, like the cute kalimba which is my favourite electro-acoustical testing-and-doodling-toy.
