Après MIDI


ToneMatrix is – in creator André Michelle's words, a "simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16-step sequencer."

In my words: It's a simple 16x16 grid of clickable squares – each producing a unique tone. Clicking them "on" or "off" builds a simple, looping musical composition.

It's more engaging than either of us make it sound. Check it.

I'm getting ripped off! I have to play it on a $2000+ MacBook Pro.
