This is a wiki post that collects web apps that are creative tools for making music, visual and other forms of art.
When adding new apps to this top post, please include the name, a link to the app, and a brief description as to what the app is for. If you created the web app, please feel free to include “created by @your_lines_username”.
If the web app is not free, or causes issues that you know about, it could be good to include that in the description.
Right now it’s just a simple bullet point list, but we can figure out more complex formatting and if it makes sense to add more detail (like if a particular web app outputs MIDI or something) once we get some items in here.
