Patternarium: vote on computer-generated drum patterns for µTonic

June 9, 2010

I’ve just found this cool tool (via Synthtopia) that builds random, computer-generated drum and rhythm patterns for the µTonic VST/AU plugin.

Patternarium builds new patterns by mixing together two previous ones, creating a subsequent ‘generation’. Visitors to the site can vote each pattern up or down. Patterns with more positive votes have a higher chance of being used to create more patterns.

It’s audio evolution by public vote.

What’s more, all the patterns can be freely downloaded or copied for use in µTonic.

It’s a fairly simple concept but with a great interface and, most importantly, great sounds.

Check it out and see what you think.
