  1. It’s like they’ve taken the most challenging, rewarding and gratifying creative work and made it practically automatic!! Thanks for saving us all that trouble! 😉

    Seriously, Cthulhu does some like a pretty fascinating tool. There’s something kind of boundary pushing about it. In essence, it pushes the boundary of plagiarism a little bit. There are lots of ways they have lifted various patterns from “great works” and deconstructed them for use in new music. On one hand it seems a little like cheating, but on the other hand, it’s pretty clever; and appears to yield musically satisfying results.

  2. This seems like a natural progression of technology to me–years back, when I was learning guitar I used to have a little book with just about every conceivable guitar chord laid out in tablature and standard notation, and another that had a bunch of common progressions to steal and repurpose. Heck, I still have a booklet that shows the piano fingerings for major, minor, m7, m9, suspended, and diminished, chords. While I prefer working from printed material, which can be stuck on a wall or a music stand while you’re dicking around with synths, making the leap to a piece of software that actually plays them for you doesn’t seem like any real creative difference. I mean, I record and quantize all my MIDI notes anyway.

    I’m not going to buy it, but it seems like a much better solution than a sample pack or loop set.
