TamTam Edit released!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tamtam4olpc @ 4:47 pm

The next stable XO build will see the first beta release of the TamTam music editor. TamTam Edit is a page driven event sequencer featuring a powerful music generator, a colorful and intuitive graphical interface to create, modify and organise notes on five virtual “tracks”, a palette of close to a hundred sounds and a music construction model that allows virtually limitless variations in all musical styles.

TamTam Edit joins miniTamTam and TamTam synthLab as the third component of a complete music and sound creation and collaboration environment on the XO. THe fourth component consisting of a collaborative playing and composing tool will be forthcoming as soon as the mesh network technology stabilises.

TamTam Edit uses about 55-65% of the CPU when running full tilt and presently occupies about 20MB of ram. We extend full kudos to James Bergstra of the Université de Montréal and Adrian Martin of the University of Toronto for making this a reality. Given the constraints, this is no small feat. Olivier Bélanger and Nathanaël Lécaudé, both of the Université de Montréal have also contributed an enormous amount of hours to create what is turning out to be a package we are extremely proud of.
