Have fun with the Sonic Charge Patternarium

Sonic Charge have created an online tool that they call The MicroTonic Patternarium. You could describe Patternarium as an online collaborative patch randomizer. It continuously generates new sounds and rhythms for MicroTonic through principles of evolution. You get to vote on whether rhythms should prosper and procreate or if they should die. Call it musical darwinismsurvival of the phattest.

What you can experiencing here are computer generated patterns for µTonic created through principles of evolution. All the sounds and rhythms you are hearing are produced by algorithms running on the Sonic Charge servers (even the names are made up by random). Think of Patternarium as a giant collaborative patch randomizer.

How does it work?
Their servers are regularly spawning new generations of a thousand unique patterns, each one being the cross product of two other patterns picked at random. The higher votes a certain pattern receives, the more likely it is to get picked and bear offspring into the next generation. This means that you may participate and influence the outcome of Patternarium simply by voting.
