Image placeholder title

Web Clip 1: The same three-part four-bar riff is heard three times: without any time warping, with the drum part time warped, and with the time-warped drum part as the tempo master.

Web Clip 2: Created from nested Racks of MIDI effects, virtual instruments, and effects, this clip is generated from single notes automatically converted to chords, arpeggiated, played by layered instruments and processed with chorus, reverb, and delay. Automation provides the variety.
