DESCRIPTION

It's my first upload, be kind. Very plain, but nice beeps I say.
I found inspiration in the windchimes that populate Berkeley, man, they're nice and distracting from the distopia.
Everything is change.

Very nice and gentle chime sounds, great for ambient or new age sounds.

excellent stuff, I think the 'physics engine' idea would be a very interesting avenue to explore. I think it works because it DOESNT have tempo sync. More like this please. cheers.

Ahhh, works now. My original file must have corrupted. Nice!

And what an ensemble it is! Just excellent, one of the nicest ensembles I ran into. Very dreamy chimes backgrounds and semi random melodies that inspire me in my music. I've been using it for 9 hours nonstop in a new Cubase track and there were some things I wanted to add if I could: a tempo sync option with an external sequencer, something that lets you select another waveform instead of a sinus , a lowpass filter and resonance and ultimately a midi send option that could send the chimes midi data back into the sequencer as an input.

Couldn't get a sound out of this one. Anyone else with a G4 Mac have the same problem?

wow, I'm blushing. ant, nice suggestions, I remember thinking about the more refined simulation of windchimes earlier, but had forgotten. I'm totally into you (or anyone for that matter) remixing it. Phil, yah, sometimes I just turn it on and leave it for hours.

that's a great ensemble. we have two sets of metal chimes in the garden and it's lush to hear. how about a physics engine to emulate wind and movement of the chimes? the metal sail thing at the centre of the circle of chimes can be emulated by two sine oscillators swinging on the x plane and on the y plane, moving in star shapes across the chimes. the varying wind affects the amplitudes of the oscillators. and the rebound agains the chimes is represented by mirrors at the edge of the sine waves (...) the distance of the chimes to each other and their contact can also be emulated with oscillators and can be interlinked with "strings" :P dont worry i dunno what i'm on about. also the chimes could be cut to preset lengths to represent chinese tempers, simpler variations of the western 12 tone temper. i reallllly have to make one now i'll send it to you for remixing :)

nice one! this is different and worth having a look at. it is very well designed and does very beautiful "random walking chiming patternless sounds". use whilst your drinking a nice cup of tea or a glass of wine and think about spring.
