Keep a Freesound.org random sound of the day on norns.
A little utility which, if it works lol, keeps the Freesound.org random sample of the day on norns under
dust/audio/freesoundoftheday. Old samples are deleted, so only the daily sample is kept in there for bringing into a project for fun and inspiration
Shoutout to anyone who is using moving targets for inspiration such as randomized presets, weekly challenges etc. Plus also shoutout to people posting stuff about Lua and systemd on StackOverflow lol. A personal little one-day project, maybe it even works. Feedback, contributions welcome of course.
- Internet connection
This is kind of “advanced” in the sense that this assumes some familiarity with the operating system side of things on norns, the commandline etc GNU/Linux things. Maybe in the future this could be somehow turned to one of those “mods”, with design help/review from someone:
This is kind of running outside of the norns on the underlying platform as a
systemd service. The README has installation instructions but basically, on the command line
- Install the software with
;install https://github.com/xmacex/freesoundofthedayor clone the repo
- Install systemd service
sudo ln -s /home/dust/code/freesoundoftheday/lib/freesoundoftheday.service /etc/systemd/system
sudo systemctl daemon-reloador restart norns.
You can use the command
systemctl status freesoundoftheday to see information what this script has been doing lately.
