Have you ever wondered what climate cycles of the last million years SOUND like? What would happen if you turned tide level data into sound waves? If geological cycles could make music - what would the melody be? The harmony?
Maestro Frankenstein is a unique application that is designed as a multitrack data sequencer to map timeseries data to notes or musical control values. Although designed with geologic data in mind, Maestro Frankenstein creates a score from any timeseries data and plays it back in realtime with any instrument (MIDI, VST or built-in synth) that you specify.
Maestro Frankenstein includes Data viewing, basic editing, many musical mapping options, as well as spectral analysis processes such as an average FFT with peak detection and a spectral bandpass filter to create new curves by isolating specific frequencies. You can even turn your data directly into sound waves - usually noisy, and very fun.
Maestro Frankenstein reads most data saved in standard Tab-Delimited Text format, such as can be exported from Excel or OpenOffice. Some sample data files are included to get you going. Text, MIDI and audio files can be exported.
