A program for those interested in converting timbre to pitch information in realtime. Takes input from soundfile or from microphone. Outputs in MIDI pitch / velocity format. Useful for music/sound analysis and for converting sounds to musical notation.
A virtual concertina/accordion/bayan. You can choose your finger mapping to allow your computer keyboard to be used like a variety of different folk instruments. Optionally, use your mouse to control the bellows!

The Sonatron Project
This project was an early attempt at merging gaming with music-making in a free, non-linear way. The player orbits a sequenced star, but can make musical decisions freely in response. The idea was that the game would reward an equilibrium between repetition and variety, encouraging the player to improvise coherently while still connecting their music to the star. The game includes approximations for a variety of traditional musical interfaces, including guitar, piano, and bayan. Initial development began in Pd, but stalled after switching into the Unity game engine. I hope to return to this project at some point, but it's been abandoned since 2008. Nonetheless, the early Pd source files are available here for the occasional person who may be interested. This rough Pd version works only on OS X and Linux, with no guarantees.
