Each slider controls a particular audio stream; adjust sliders to taste and mood. The animation button turns the soundscape into an slowly evolving texture. Use this feature if you intend to listen to the generator over a long period of time.

Boom Bap Jazz

In hip-hop, and in boom bap culture in particular, sampling is heavily used to enhance the drum pattern, which is often just a simple, repetitive beat. Sampling means using a portion of a sound recording, and then looping it, transforming it, and layering it in a new musical context. As an exercise, I tried to program such boom bap track but quickly slipped into jazzy territories, thanks to wonderful guitar lines created by Franco Donadio for this sound generator.

Sampling is illegal unless you've received a clearance from the original copyright holder. The eighties were the wild west regarding sampling: the law wasn’t any different back then, but it wasn’t really enforced. The situation is different today, and this generator may suddenly disappear if a copyright claim arises from the couple of audio snippets sampled from vintage jazz vinyls. If you recognize where these samples come from, please share your findings in the comment section below!

The myNoise audio engine is a tricky beast to tame. It combines and mangles audio in ways that are difficult to control — sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. This generator may sound weird at times... but the more you listen to it, the more you get used to these oddities. And at some point, you may even find them cool! And then, there is that odd time signature... not your regular 4/4 beat.

  WOW. This is the kind of generator I've been looking for. Thank you! I am a donor and will donate again. Many great testimonials here. I agree - let's keep supporting Dr. Pigeon. And, I'm also amazed with your continued inspiring creativity.

  Awesome! Honestly sooo cool!! Will be donating soon Dr. Pigeon!

  This makes me laugh, I have no idea why. Thanks for cheering me up on these dull days!

  This is beautifully brutal at quarter-speed.

  This is fantastic. I always want to listen to musical tracks while working, but they are so distracting when I really need to focus on work. When I turn off the AI voice component, this is just the right mixture to avoid distraction while providing something that my brain craves.

  Mix it with Atomic City's radio. Sounds great!

  Dr. Stéphane, these sounds really help me concentrate and feel less isolated when working from home. Thank you so much! To everybody who has not yet contributed financially: I gave a modest donation 222 days ago and still have a five star contribution level. That's just to say that even with a small donation you contribute immensely to this project. So please consider enabling Dr. S to continue.

  It reminded me of Steve Reich's early work 'Come out'... Yours has more music of course! But they both have interesting rhythms. I do like the way you've used the voice. Thank you Dr Pigeon, your talents never seem to run out of inspiration!

  Always excited to see something new pop up. This one is great and calming, good for work.

  Cool Gen!

  Yo man! Perfect background music to code and to do ma thang! Getting the old-school vibes dogg ;) Once again good work doc! _[Nitin]
