Oneupweb : Create Music With The ToneMatrix

Posted on in Blog

I ran across this little Flash gem today while surfing the world wide web and I must admit, it’s quite addictive. Trust me, you’ll have a blast! The ToneMatrix is a free music synthesizer that lets you create your own audio sequences by selecting steps on a 16×16 matrix. Simply select steps with your mouse across the whole matrix. The sound plays from left to right, based on your selected sequence of steps. Click once to select, click again to deselect. Press the SPACE key, to clear all.

The ToneMatrix was created back in 2009 by Andre Michelle after he played with a Yamaha TENORI-ON, which I had no idea existed until now (I know what I want for Christmas next year). Andre Michelle got his start in 1998 with Flash 4 as an autodidact and has repeatedly pushed the limits of Flash possibilities in gaming, interactivity and music. Currently he is working on Audiotool (which is genius), an online music application entirely developed in Flash.
