    Happy holidays everyone!

    We have a very special gift for you this year - a script for Microtonic called BeatSpace.


    Using data from nearly 30000 Patternarium presets, we trained a neural network to create stellar-sounding beats and to spread them on a 2-dimensional map. We then converted this neural network into a Javascript for Microtonic that lets you drag eight points around this map to morph and combine sounds and rhythms into your own unique creations.

    BeatSpace is included in the latest version of the Official Microtonic Script installer, available for registered Microtonic here. Simply run the installer and use the little puzzle button in Microtonic to open it.

    We hope you will have as much fun with this tool as we had creating it.

    / Magnus & Fredrik Lidström

    Additional info:

    • Each point is a drum channel in Microtonic.
    • There are 1000 * 1000 unique points.
    • Every point contains sound and pattern data for one channel.
    • Together, they form a constellation, an eight-channel beat.
    • You can right-click to copy and paste constellations. Paste your coolest findings here. 🤩
    • The dice randomizes the eight points.
    • Alt-click for solo, shift for fine, and command/control-click for mute/unmute, as it says in the UI 😉
    • You can undo/redo with the standard Microtonic undo/redo buttons.
    • If you change a channel in Microtonic and the resulting sound differs from the neural network's output, the point will be marked with an X, and its coordinate will be struck through. Touching the point again will reset the channel to the neural network's output.
    • You can also right-click and choose "Enable All Points" to remove all X's.
    • Bright areas in the spacy background represent existing Patternarium data, while dark areas represent points in the map that have been extrapolated from this data. The colors indicate how the network has grouped different types of sounds and pattern data.

    In a world where 'lifetime' licenses seem to be mysteriously losing the 'f' ...

    I thank you for your honour and integrity and your ongoing continued support of this wicked little drum machine. I forget when I bought it, it is a loooooooong time ago, and here we are, 2022/23 still getting updates.

    Did you have access to it before? Did you install the scripts in addition to Microtonic?

    I can replicate what you're seeing by removing the scripts folder.

  • GBP

    ah no i have never installed scripts ! I will investigate thanks

  • paradiddle

    Brilliant! Thank you for this!

  • GBP

    Yes thank you that has fixed the problem with an easy install of the scripts download.

  • Bryan Collins

    This thing is brilliant, thank you so very much. I want to request that the window be larger and that I can view it separately from the rest of microtonic, because it is so cool! Also visually appealing! But I love it, thank you so very much! You have really won me back to Microtonic I think. I have to see what's up with all the scripts. It's all just very exciting.
