Musician Aphex Twin, with developer Dave Griffiths, released Samplebrain audio editing software. This program translates the input sounds into identical samples to create a new track. Samplebrain can be downloaded for free from GitLab.
to the program It allows the user to use one sample as the “target sound” and several samples as the “brain content”. Samplebrain then uses what is called brain content to recreate the target sound.
“Imagine being able to recreate a source sound from a selection of mp3 files or other audio files on your computer. Or you could create a 303 music tune out of just a cappella songs or bubbling mud sounds. Or what if you were singing a silly tune and rebuilt it from Classical music files? You can with Samplebrain”, Aphex Twin writes in announcing the program.
Avex Twain whose real name is Richard James, He says he came up with the idea for Samplebrain twenty years ago. He remembers that he was storing a “collection” of MP3 files and that the music-searching service Shazam had just appeared. “I collected all that music and thought I could use it for something else besides playing it or mixing files. I initially reached out to the founders of Shazam to discuss more creative uses of their genius idea, but they were already making an automatic DJ show,” James said.
Then the musician collaborated with Griffiths to embody his idea. Griffiths wrote in a statement about SoundCloud page for Aphex Twin. “If you give him enough, he will be able to take all the right bits to create a new sound.”
Samplebrain is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
