Ever been in that situation where you feel the need to create, but you can’t think what you want the idea to be? A melody comes into your head but it’s too like something else and you just can’t find something fresh?
Would you like a really cool solution?
Step this way!
Inspiral is designed to break songwriters block in a magnificently powerful and yet alarmingly simple way; Under the hood Inspiral is extremely complex but we made your side really easy :D You just tap in a few notes to either a preset scale or one you make yourself, and Inspiral will produce a random output that could be any one of the following:
Double note (the original plus one random - in scale)
Alternatively you could just set it so that you only get one type of event, and you flip between the four onboard scale banks.
Perhaps set the scale chromatically and visit Improv City!
The end result is simple - you create new music, and maybe even surprise yourself. Not a bad result for writers block, huh?
If you like generative music, then Inspiral is for you!
If you need creative inspiration, then Inspiral is for you!
If you like weird improvs and experiments, then Inspiral is for you!
We have now added a huge selection of scales. We have expanded the set of scales from 32 to 371. As well as adding scales from all over the world including many of the Indian Mela and Ragas, and masses of blues and jazz scales, we have also been very careful to maximise creativity by removing the duplicates - who knew that there are about 10 different names for Dorian?
New in 1.1!!!
Graphics have been completely reworked, and some new small features are added - Random First and Spread controls for both Single and Dual modes.
- Random First will make the Single notes, or the first note of the Dual notes random before setting to the scale. This adds a little extra spice to the Single and Dual functions.
- Spread controls (One for single, One for Dual) - used to control how far these random elements can go - previously this was always locked to one octave each way, but now can be limited.
