Richard James aka Aphex Twin and Dave Griffiths released a the free sound design software Samplebrain
A custom sample mashing app designed by Aphex Twin.
Samplebrain chops samples up into a ‘brain’ of interconnected small sections called blocks which are connected into a network by similarity. It processes a target sample, chopping it up into blocks in the same way, and tries to match each block with one in it’s brain to play in realtime.
This allows you to interpret a sound with a different one. As we worked on it (during 2015 and 2016) we gradually added more and more tweakable parameters until it became slightly out of control.
Samplebrain is free software – you can download the application on our gitlab page here.
Big thank you to Nik Gaffney for building the Apple M1 version.
