Extremely cool upright bass solo here. I just came across this while programming a similar style for the upcoming generative algos. Erm, it won't be quite as exciting as this live performance, but not that far also ...

Not that this is in any way comparable, but it's what I mentioned I've been working on:
This is what the experimantal interface currently looks like and what's generated as a Figure:

Here's a library for you to play with, full of generated bass:

Great! I am eagerly looking forward for the new features

Outstanding! How close are you to releasing this to us?

The time frame is still somewhat unpredictable, but I'm working on this 10 hours a day currently, because it's the defining new feature of 2.0. Some days there's a breakthrough, others go on and on with a lot of refactoring and redesign, showing little visible progress. It is truly exciting. Feels like giving birth to a game changer.
There will be a dozen or so generators initially, for all sorts of purposes. The goal is to cover a wide range of styles and uses, so everyone can fast-breed their own libraries full of original phrases.
The ultimate end game could be a generator that generates generators ... but I'm not there yet. In order to understand the rules and patterns that make a good generator, I need to write more of them by hand first (using the KIM language specifically created for that purpose). Once the rules are clear, they can be written into a meta-generator.

Creating the KIM language was the hard part. Writing rules in that language now is total fun.

Seems to me outstanding this new feature for Synfire.
A gamechanger then and hopefully it pays out in a commercial success too.
