For my Always On, Always Connected midterm I’m on a working on music interface. My inspiration came from being able to make a tool that I can use wherever I am to hash out new ideas, or even as a performing instrument in the long run. I am using Nexus, a company that specializes in making interactive musical interfaces, and connected two keyboard interfaces with a 16 beat drum sequencer. I then connected tone.js to the keyboards, with the polysynth sound from the tone.js library. My goal is to connect all three interfaces with a common metronome so that all the interfaces can be played simultaneously.
My wireframes for Troubadour:
This is my Interface thus far:
The keyboards are functioning with sound from tone.j.s
- Putting drum sounds on the sequencer.
- Hooking up a metronome to all three interfaces.
- Connect a looping function
- Connect a saving function
