Rhythmicator is a novel Max/MSP application for automatically generating rhythms in real time in a certain meter. The generated rhythms are “generic” in the sense that they are characteristic of each time signature without belonging to a specific musical style.
The application is based on a stochastic model in which various aspects and qualities of the generated rhythm can be controlled intuitively and in real time.
During a performance with the Rhythmicator, the user can control the density of the generated events per bar, the amount of variation in generation, the amount of syncopation, the metrical strength, and of course the meter itself, through descriptive and intuitive graphic controls.
