Concordia

By Bitnotic

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

Each time you press Play or Next, Concordia plays a unique song, that no one has ever heard before. There are four parts - pad, two melody lines, drums, and sound effects, that work together to create infinite amounts of surprisingly intricate music.

You can describe the style as ambient, classical, New Age-y, experimental, and/or electronic. Tailor the music using simple controls to create your own genre. Or start with a station, like Meditation, Classical, or Electronica, and go from there.

Visit the Concordia Web page to download a working demo, hear songs exported directly from the app, and see sample projects where users have incorporated Concordia songs.

Want to listen to Concordia when you aren’t at your computer? Save a whole album to iTunes with a single menu command. Play it on your iPod. Burn it to a CD.

Royalty free, commercial free. Play Concordia music (live or recorded) in your workplace, store, or club. Use Concordia tracks in your presentations, videos, movies, or games as either temp tracks or the final score.

look harder at what this app does well

Download the demo 1st if you want to be sure. However, I think this app deserves a closer look and listen. It does generate melodies and harmonies quite nicely, and intuitively. If the UI was updated to be more visually appealing, and the sound engine was improved this app would rate closer to what Mixtikl or Noatikl is known to do so well. It may even be more melodic sounding at times. It lacks what I mentioned before, and it also doesn't allow for as much interesting interaction beyond the few sliders. However, when you're looking for musical tools, you need to look at and understand what a tool does well, and what it doesn't do well. A certain amount of creativity comes from using a tool's abilities and limitations. I think if you read the user manual as a .pdf on the Bitnotic site and try the demo, you might just realize that this app is not really a toy.

Sounds like a cat walking across Brian Eno

I really, really wanted to like this app and had it running moments after I downloaded it. I was disappointed to discover the sound generated from the app is pretty thin, tinny and uninspired. The bank of instruments is low, lending to a very low budget sound on most tracks. While it is interesting that all music is randomly generated, it certainly isn't worth the $15 I shelled out for the app. Save your money and buy an album, listen to one of the many ambient stations on iTunes, or just hum to yourself.

very nice application

This program does just what it says: it dynamically creates and plays music. I use it to make pleasant unobtrusive background music for when I'm studying or reading. Well done.
