Wouter Hisschemöller Euclidean MIDI Patterns, rhythm generator for Java


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.

MIDI tools are always welcome, thanks to the author for offering this as freeware! :D

I’m not very keen on Java apps, but maybe I’m being unfair. A couple of years ago, I tried to run a Java app I got from COMPUTER MUSIC Magazine but it didn’t work. I think it was a drum sampler with built-in sequencer, or something like that.
