Databending is commonly used to create in sound and image files effects that are exclusively digital in nature. The methods employed in databending are as varied as the results achieved. There are many varied and undefined methods of databending audio files, some more involved than others. While there are programs available that will perform certain databending processes on audio files (such as granular synths), some of the simplest methods require nothing more than typical computer programs.

Text Editor Bending One of the easiest methods of databending audio files is to open the audio file in a text editor, such as Notepad. Databending tutorial - Base track by intelligentmachinery All of the databending results in this tutorial are based on this recording (a performance culled from some track I recorded sometime earlier this year). Granulator. Granulator What is Granulator ?


Granulator is a real-time, MIDI controllable, granular synthesizer. Granular synthesizers generate thousands of very short sonic grains to create audio textures. What are the parameters of Granulator ? Events section: density: number of grains by time frame duration: duration of the grain For high density and duration values, over one hundred grains can be playing at the same time. Oscillator section: pitch: pitch of the grainoffset: the starting point of the grain in the waveform waveform: to select a new waveform, double-click on the graphic.

Filter section: cutoff: cutoff frequency of the filter resonance: resonance of the filter This is a low pass filter with a 24dB/octave slope.

You just tell it what files to convert, what format to convert them to, and where to put the output files, and it does it.

The Sound of Sorting - "Audibilization" and Visualization of Sorting Algorithms -

Sorting algorithms are an essential chapter in undergraduate computer science education. Due to their easy to explain nature and fairly straight-forward analysis, this set of algorithms offers a convenient introduction to the methods and techniques of theoretical computer science and algorithm analysis. This web page presents my own demo program for sortings algorithms, called "The Sound of Sorting", which both visualizes the algorithms internals and their operations, and generates sound effects from the values being compared.

See below for YouTube videos created with the demo. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, can be executed on Windows, Linux and Mac, and runs in real time. All of the sorting algorithms are implemented in the SortAlgo.cpp. Since November 2013, there is also the SoS-CheatSheet.pdf , which contains pseudo-code of a small selection of the algorithms.

Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch

It is suitable only for extreme sound stretching of the audio (like 50x) and for applying special effects by "spectral smoothing" the sounds. It can transform any sound/music to a texture. The program is Open-Source and it's released under the version 2 of the General Public License. Please note that this is suitable only for extreme time stretching (e.g. if have a melody of 3 minutes and you want to listen it in 3 hours). Features It produces high quality extreme sound stretching. The Impossible Music of Black MIDI. The machine on which Conlon Nancarrow created his player piano rolls.

The Impossible Music of Black MIDI

Photo by Carol Law, 1977. Collection: C Amirkhanian. In 1947, the composer Conlon Nancarrow—frustrated with human pianists and their limited ability to play his rhythmically complex music—purchased a device which allowed him to punch holes in player piano rolls. This technology allowed him to create incredibly complex musical compositions, unplayable by human hands, which later came to be widely recognized by electronic musicians as an important precursor to their work. A similar interest in seemingly impossible music can be found today in a group of musicians who use MIDI files (which store musical notes and timings, not unlike player piano rolls) to create compositions that feature staggering numbers of notes. Blackers take these MIDI files and run them through software such as Synesthesia, which is kind of an educational version of Guitar Hero for the piano, and bills itself as "piano for everyone.
