Just to whet your appetite, here is a recording of the output of a Sonic Pi 2 program I have been working on today, which explores the use of samples. There are 10 different samples employed in the program:
six are recordings of my voice, two with sentences, and 4 singing the word hello at different pitches.
The remaining 4 come from a great free CCL licence resource of samples called
The Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra
I have used one recording of a violin playing a sustained note, one of a trumpet playing a staccato note, one of a trumpet playing a sustained note, and one of a bass drum being struck.
The end result can be heard here
The program and description will follow tomorrow.
