SSEYO Ltd. has introduced an online music mixing/creation program entitled FreeMixer. FreeMixer allows users to create online music and animation from small components or chunks. Currently, there are three versions of FreeMixer; one that makes MP3s, a general MIDI mixer, and an XG MIDI mixer. According to SSEYO:
FreeMixers, which are energized by the Koan Internet Audio engine, are free, fast, fun online applications with real power. They allow original pieces of music to be constructed from tiny online generative components, which are typically around 2k to 20k in size. Each audio component has a stunning accompanying animation, meaning users can create fascinating continuous audio-visual works.
FreeMixers can be used free on the SSEYO website, or users can put them on their own websites, again for free. Users simply need to register with the relevant online SSEYO mailing list. The FreeMixers themselves are typically around 100Kb, and require a SSEYO Koan Plugin and Macromedia Flash Plugin.
SSEYO Koan is the market leading generative music system for both Internet and standalone use. It allows creation and delivery of ultra-compact, and therefore fast, pieces of music that can utilise MP3 samples. The music in these pieces can be fully sequenced or composed "on the fly", as required. Tiny MP3 samples can be looked upon as musical building blocks. They can even be used instead of standard "onboard" MIDI sounds, allowing completely custom sounding music and audio.
The browser plugin is free, and Koan authors can create their own Koan audio with the $200 SSEYO Koan Pro authoring system. For more information, please visit the SSEYO website.
