2 DJ Mixer/Sequencer Made With the JAVA 2 Sound API
We were approached in June of 2000 to create an interactive web-based
music application for IBM's Developer Works and Clubplanet.com.
We strategically used the frame accuracy of the JAVA 2 sound api to defeat
synchronization problems to ensure smooth and stutter free playback. Using
sound manipulation software and a library of versatile material, we sat
down and pulled out 32 samples that best represented what we believed
the audience at Club Planet would appreciate.
We streamlined the graphic design of the DJ Mixer/Sequencer to focus on
the sound handling capabilities of the Java 2 API sound module. The interface
is geared to facilitate the quick loading of the samples and to provide
the user with an obvious and intuitive music sequencing system.
- Making Music
In the most basic scenario, the user simply chooses four samples, one
for each track, and presses play.
options included the ability to audition each track separately and to
control the volume of each sample for every four bar phrase.
