"Deltaphone is a programming language for generating music that uses the ideas from turtle geometry to jump around the staff"
I think this has a ton of potential and could be used for serious music production. MIDI export would be awesome. Or even a VST plugin that emits MIDI into a DAW. It would be great to use something like this inside REAPER .
I think my two immediate ideas would be 1) a line type that might be a sustain or held open gate and 2) maybe a mixing list with all the lines on it so that you can selectively mute/unmute paths.
I played a little bit with Slang a week ago too, looking forward to messing with the more options in there. Seems like you're into a lot of cool stuff, thanks for making this all!
Also, what I've got looping right now: http://turtle.audio/play/3mu3sm
But anyway, this is a really nice little app!
There is value in making music easier, but you're only good enough for a little while before people move on to more professional tools
A clear example is everything made by [Teenage Engineering](https://teenage.engineering) - check out the OP-Z. The interface is completely weird in the age of hi-res screens, but I'm sure it's going to be a hit.
Another point is that in a creative process, sometimes the 'easiest' way to produce output causes all the output to be similar and uninteresting. When you change the rules, and make the creation process significantly different, you can sometimes see new results you wouldn't have expected.
But I guess I'm approaching this from a very different perspective. I hope to go pro some day, so I also use tools that are not meant to "just have fun" (which the OP-1 is a whole load of).
The majority of musicians are just doing it for fun. For them, I can see something like this being another tool to play around in.
I take my comment back. I now understand what kind of people might use this (anyone not insane enough to want to be a professional musician)
