Music Coder is a music programming library. It generates music entirely through code in the chosen programming language (Ruby). There are three main reasons a technically minded person would use Music Coder: Producing music: Write scripts that mimic human creativity, and put some randomness in it, giving you a program that can generate aesthetically pleasing music that is completely unique in each file generated. Scientific exploration: Use the functions in Music Coder to concisely apply algorithms or math to the structure and properties of sound. Making samples: create samples or sections of music that are too complex to be done by hand in graphical audio programs such as Ableton.
