i have tons of ideas that i havent shared so let’s start with the latest…recent news about crystallization of dead stars had me wiki diving into articles about crystal formation (and the difference between simple cubic forms, body-centered, and face-centered structures).
two loose ideas which could be pages in the same app, vais
a three mode sample trimmer/editor in which parameters are mapped to lattice points and can be edited visually by modifying the cubes
a sequencer based on 2d display (with and w/o grid control) of bravais lattices…samples can be assigned to different rows and steps muted…sequence is changed by nudging points (left or right) to play with phase relationships between samples because in my head all points shift in unison so basically you are morphing between lattice group shapes as you tweak
i imagine it will take a bit of time to work out how to generate the visuals and lua control script…then this could be applied to any of the available sampling engines
