Snippnriff– musical snippets and riffs remembered
Problem being solved
In a session of iPad music app experimentation there are frequently short snippets of music or interesting riffs to be captured quickly for later retrieval. Rather than cumbersomely storing them in each individual app they can all be sampled descriptively in Evernote Snippnriff.
Connect Evernote Snippnriff as an Audiobus output device to capture snippets of music and riffs that naturally materialise when playing with iPad musical apps.
When activated, a Snippnriff capture will record the sound sample, identify the applications using the Audiobus API, optionally capture MIDI, optionally capture timing settings and then store the sample in an Evernote Snippnriff notebook.
The note will be automatically tagged with each device used. Other information such as timing and MIDI can be specified in autotag settings.
Later versions (which may need to be done in conjunction with Audiobus) will allow you to retrieve the Snippnriff note and feed this back into Audiobus to allow it to automatically set up the devices in the configuration that was present when the capture was done.
(note this idea has also been submitted for developers to consider in the Evernote Devcup 2013 )
This application is based on the concept of “pleasing” an artificial intelligence or a user driven algorithm that “judges” your artwork, photograph, animation, music or writing and tells you if it is pleased with it.
The point is that it gives a restrictive environment which enhances creativity (in the same way that photographers will sometimes restrict themselves to only shooting objects of a certain size, shape or colour).
Each algorithm/AI will have it’s own blog/site/section/subreddit that displays artistic endevours that meet it’s criteria only. While you can choose to make your interaction with the algorithm private, if you make it public then anyone can contribute.
If you are the original creator/submitter of the algorithm (and the site is set up to enable this function) then you will share in any site generated revenue.
