I’ve started digging through the tutorials saved in earlier posts and found the first two not that useful. The Generative Jam Template Belibat uses relies heavily on existing modular synths, and while it gives some helpful process tips in terms of the kinds of modulations one might choose to make to a note, it’s not that relevant to playing bridge samples and modifying them. Then checked out the generative.fm tutorial on web audio, which is far more helpful and leads me to the next phase, although I diverged fairly quickly from his process, because again it’st about modulating the pitch and duration of existing notes.
What I’m trying to do is bend and stretch, shift pitch and duration of an existing audio sample, that can be already a fairly complex sonic landscape, not only a single note.
