hello! i’ve built an 8-track groovebox that works entirely in the browser and is free to use: https://tahti.studio/ i thought there might be people here who would appreciate such a thing
some key features:
sample-based sound generation with support for single-cycle waveforms
almost all parameters can be modulated on a per-step basis
each track has a multimode filter, distortion, frequency shifter, sample-rate reducer, and amp envelope
three freely assignable modulation sources per track (essentially flexible LFOs that can be used in one-shot mode)
steps have micro-timing, retriggering, probability, and trigger conditions
tracks can have individual lengths and sequencer speeds (the latter can even be step-modulated, because why not)
four send effect: chorus, phaser, reverb, delay
a master compressor and soft clipper
macro controls for working with all kinds of inputs (check out the shortcuts)
pattern sharing via secret links
rendering patterns to .wav
it’s got a default library with some samples and demo patterns made by friends and myself to get you started, but you can also use your own samples. unless you decide to share patterns, everything happens in your browser and nothing is uploaded to any server. unfortunately, it doesn’t currently work on touch devices, only on desktop. there is no documentation yet but hopefully it’s understandable by trial and error, and by referring to the tooltips. if you’ve ever used a groovebox, it should be pretty straightforward!
there are also quite a few randomisation features both for serendipitous exploration and for just creating patterns that never repeat themselves in the same way. one example of the latter is the “infinite drummer” factory pattern: tahti.studio/mpyedkjk)
play with it and let me know what you think!
p.s. i didn’t post in the “equipment” category since it’s for commercial products, which this is not (so far). feel free to move in case this is still in the wrong category!
was just coming to say that i turned it into a dismissable warning at the time @naxuu tried it, it still prevented entry completely. hope it works now!
much appreciated, Ess! i’m a huge fan of the Digitone, which i actually used to create all the percussion samples in the “tahti essentials” pack
