ChillZone Pianist v2

October 15, 2009 Plugins 0 Comments

ChillZone Pianist is finally getting the update it deserves.  The first of many style options, left hand arpeggiation, is tentatively working.  The plugin takes advantage of the new generalized algorithm include file (code-named XIAS).  In particular, it uses a Lindenmayer system to control an underlying grammatical engine.  The words are generated randomly using Brownian fractal motion.  The results sound great for preliminary runs.  Though some of the arpeggiations the program comes up with aren't too compelling, most of the output sounds good and is both coherent and creative.

After some more initial testing, I'll implement an array of new styles so that ChillZone Pianist will finally be a flexible piano plugin.  I intend to flesh out the options for chord, rhythmic chord, melody, and abstract, as well as arpeggiation.
