h1. "Beatbox beta":http://github.com/rfwatson/live-beatbox
Experimental drum machine which uses vocalization to select synthetic drum hits which best match beat-boxed sound.
Currently uses a combination of MFCC, SpectralCentroid and ZeroCrossing measurements to analyze and match the timbre of the sounds.
In super-alpha-beta state! It may or may not work on your setup.
* Some sort of external microphone and audio interface. I use an Edirol FA101 when building this. I haven't got it working well with the Mac's internal sound
* OSX - unless you want to make the GUI stuff cross-platform.
h2. Keyboard shortcuts
Preview recorded sound
Add hit to seq (while playing)
Remove hit (while playing)
* Add analysis of amplitude envelope, only uses timbral analysis at the moment which while quite good it needs amp.env. comparison to be really intuitive
* Add ability to scan and add samples via GUI, from any location
* Improve doc
* Lots more...
