Wouter Hisschemöller has released Euclidean MIDI Patterns, a rhythm generator application for Java.
In January I posted a Euclidean rhythm generator in Flash. Polyrhythms generated by a mathematical algorithm. I wanted the next version to be able to send MIDI, so I could use it with software like Ableton Live and hardware music machines like my Elektron Machinedrum.
Since Flash doesn’t do MIDI I spent the last few months learning Java and rebuilt the pattern generator to add MIDI capabilities.
Euclidean MIDI Patterns is available as a free download in Java .jar and Mac .app format. Java source files are also available.
