The Swinger

category: general [glöplog]
`One of my favorite hacks at last weekend’s Music Hack Day is Tristan’s Swinger. The Swinger is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing. It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half. It has quite a magical effect. Some examples:'

That is odd, and best of all it doesn't screw the tune up.

Very cool, the quantize works really nicely. I like how it grooves on money for nothing even if it sound a little screwed compared other exemples.
@ crosbow: Lighten up. You should listen to some of those tracks. I was just saying I got it from him first, that was all. I'm well aware of the nature of hyperlinks, thank you very much :)

Can do the same thing in Ableton so it's nothing new, but cool anyway (and free!) :)

I liked Daft Punk’s Around the world and White Rabbit.

Can someone post Candytron with that swing please? :P

i tried to "swing" some music, but it looks like Python and Echonest is not for me.
