Kangaroo-themed program that allows the user to create music and sound effects. Uses a system of frequency ratios for pitch control,rather than conventional music notation and equal temperament.Allows instruments,both musical and percussion,to be created
The user can create music and sound-effects with it.
It uses a system of frequency ratios for pitch control, rather than conventional music notation.
Instruments, both melodic and percussion, can be created from scratch by specifying harmonics/inharmonics.
There is a cellular-like structure to compositions, with cells representing entities at a low level of abstraction (e.g. harmonics) and at a higher level of abstraction (e.g. chord groups).
User-definable graphs are widely used in the program, e.g. for control of volume and pitch envelopes, and for shifting the balance of stereo over time.
Audio output is to uncompressed .WAV files.
From version 3, users can collaborate with and build on the work of other users through an XML import/export facility.
