Audio Examples

Here are some algorithmic random music examples in MP3 format. All examples have been created using SoundHelix with a MIDI software synthesizer, have been recorded using Audacity and have been converted to MP3 format using the Lame MP3 Encoder via Audacity. Note that all songs with the same record date have been created with an identical SoundHelix XML file.

Please read the license before using these MP3s anywhere.

The examples 1 to 11 are the same that can be found on YouTube, but in a much better quality here. For song 8, some patterns are fixed (non-random). Here, the chords, the initial bass and the melody were "hard-coded" into the XML file to match the C64 title song of the game Spy vs. Spy 1 (compare with this video).
