Transition is a
generative MIDI sequencer. The basic idea is that bots
move through a matrix of cells until they encounter a
wall, another bot, or an obstacle.
When a bot hits a
wall it will trigger a note, or a chord. The note/chord
is based on the scale degree and octave settings of the
wall cell. The output can be transposed up or down
within the selected scale by incoming MIDI notes.
When a bot crashes
with another bot they will both change direction. When a
bot encounters an obstacle the effect on the bot is
based on the type of obstacle (for example it can change
direction, jump to another part of the matrix, change
speed, or pause movement).
There are numerous
settings you can edit to control the behavior of the
bots and the MIDI output they generate. The various
randomization features allows you to create more
interesting and unpredictable output. Most of the
parameters can also be automated.
you an interesting and fun way to come up with new
musical ideas. It can produce a chaotic random result,
work more like a standard step sequencer, or something
