Melody Helpr (create melody sequences with ML)

Post by Mati N. »

Hey.

I want to share a little app called 'Melody Helpr' that might be helpful for some of you guys. It's an Electron app that uses Magenta.js (hence requires an Internet connection :!: ) to create melodies for a given chord progression. The app is meant to be used in companion with Ardour. By running Ardour, you can send time info as well as a chord sequence (from a selected region) to the Electron app and generate new melodies. It's possible to prelisten and doubling/halving the output sequence.

The source code and bundles for Linux can be found over on my GitHub.

I would like to hear some feedback. The code is not set in stone and I’m willing to fix bugs. I also plan to refactor some parts in the future.

Cheers.

I wanna test this. How do I use it? I see the binaries.

There is a README at the bottom of the GitHub repo that should cover the installation process. I think I have to separate Node specifics and the usage of the binaries a bit better.

I will probably upload a video tomorrow to give a quick impression of the app.

FYI: I updated the info in the README. Maybe it is more clear now what to do. Video is coming in the next few days.

I hit transfer and Ardour crashed.
Also, how do I hear the melody?

Hm. Do you run version 6? Unfortunately, there are some issues using the scripts with the new release. I try to fix them asap. I mainly tested and used the app and the scripts with v5.

Note that I have uploaded a video today. The quality isn't the best, but it should suffice to show the installation process and give you an impression of the running app. See Intro Video.
