The MIDI Game of Life sequencer is developed in the JAVA visual arts IDE and library Processing. It runs a loop of varying lengths or runs indefinitely the game of life algorithm. Each cell of the grid represents a pitch. The sequencer runs live and can be "played" and drawn on while running.

What's New

Version 1.05:
  • Thread priority tweaks for less MIDI drift and tempo sync issues.
  • OpenGL rendered version which results in a 30% drop in CPU usage on my 2.0ghz macbook, but looks odd from one graphics card to another.


Requires a MIDI Service Provider for JAVA such as MMJ or Mandolane.

The concept sounds interesting, but couldn't get it to make any sound. Downloaded the MMJ and installed it, brought the IAC bus online, restarted my computer. Still couldn't get it to make sound. Using Intel iMac with OS 10.5.6.

This sequencer only outputs MIDI information. You have to have something that produces sound receiving on the IAC Bus to hear anything. For example: Ableton Live, Reason, Kore, et. al.
