Glitch Machine

Glitch Machine is a generative bytebeat music synthesizer. Expressions are edited live to produce sound interactively.

The magic of Glitch Machine’s synthesis is in the BYTE, which wraps a final output value to a number between 0 – 255. The repeating patterns (or chaos) of this ‘wrapping’ produces waveforms and beats.

  • Expression sharing via email and Twitter
  • WAV export to iTunes
