I'll try get some video of this running on monday afternoon, but it will be camera phone quality.
This is a project i'm doing for uni, you can find a not very descriptive progress blog i'm doing as part of the project here http://shinyrobot.wordpress.com
The idea has evolved a long way since it started.
The sample playback borrows from something hardoff mentioned at some point. and the bass is butchered from obiwannabe(i'm horrible at synthesis, especially bass)
So anyway the project itself is a big dish that you roll golfballs in.
A camera tracks the golfballs in PD, and sends that data around to do different things.
It scribbles up the spiral, and it was originally drawing waveforms which modulated against each other.
It made these nice bubbly metallic sounds.
a bit scratchier and more hollow sounding when it was actually used though.
but after a lecturer suggested i make it sound less like max, i joked about a beatslicer because its something i like doing.
so i did it.
stutters/random jumps/flange type super delay are all picked randomly after being triggered by x and y being equal.
i should might add more triggers, it depends on how i like the ratio when used with the real dish(im just testing on my webcam at home waving around for now)
the bass pitch is being controlled by x and y added together and multiplied by 3, ending up with a range of 0-6
I'm talking a lot.
I'll chuck up a video in a few days.
