Tone Matrix

2 06 2009


Tone Matrix is a 16-step sequencer that generates a tone for each white block on the grid. It’s essentially one repeating measure of a 4/4 beat divided into 16 parts. In plain English, it’s an awesome and easy to use site that will have you entertained for quite some time. The tones sound very soothing so it takes awhile for them to get old, even when the measure repeats quickly.

When I first visited the site, I spent a couple minutes to organize the tones into a cool sequence and it worked great. The second time I just rolled the mouse over the blocks clicking randomly and it was equally as awesome. My only criticism is that it needs a reset button. However, you can solve this by hitting refresh on your browser. It would also be nice to be able to export the sequences into .wav or .mp3 files or make longer sequences. But even taking that into consideration, I still think this is a phenomenal site.
