Music Machine 2 consists of two elements.
The first is a repeated C major triad which provides the pulse for the
machine. This pulse is played as quavers at 120 bpm.
The second element is the melody (also played as quavers) that is
generated using the following rules:
1. The melody can only use notes from the
C major scale.
2. Whilst it is possible to generate
notes from any octave, the extreme high and low octaves can only play
notes from the triad
(C, E or G). Any note from the scale can be played
in the middle octaves.
3. The process is weighted in favour of
making a middle octave selection.
4. There is a 50/50 chance that the note
will be sustained rather than stopped when the next note sounds.
The machine will run indefinitely until stopped by the user.
