With a couple of "Booms!", "This is Badass" and dare we say it "Fuck Yeahs!", we have now launched the thing we have all been playing with obsessively over the past couple of weeks. It comes with a productivity warning: entire days have been lost to this site.
It is with immense excitement, pride and a feeling of being pretty cool right now, that we would like to present to you Madeon’s Adventure Machine.
For his debut album ‘Adventure’, Hugo knew exactly what he wanted to help launch the album and offer fans a sneak peak of what's to come. So we created an awesome remixing tool for him. Using the new HTML5 WebAudio APIs, you can mix samples from Madeon’s new album allowing you to become the DJ. With drum, bass, vocal and synth, Madeon’s Adventure Machine is a super fun way to create sweet sweet music.
As an added bonus, using brand spanking new experimental WebMIDI API on Chrome and the JazzSoft MIDI plugin for other browsers we’ve made it possible for you to control the website with a Novation Launchpad; we think it's super cool being able to control a website from an external piece of hardware.
It's also a mobile app! To install the app on your phone just visit the website and take Madeon's Adventure Machine with you wherever you are… what more could you want??
Our colleague, Keith, has done a little demo for you all to see how the site works both using your computer’s mouse (you can also use your touchscreen on a tablet) and using a launchpad - just press the buttons; it lights up and everything.
Go and have a play around with Madeon’s Adventure Machine or in the embed below and let us know what you think. Unless you don’t like it, then just don’t tell us ‘cos we’re really excited about it and we love it!
Also, look out for a blog post from us soon about how we made it, we learnt lots of awesome stuff to do with audio on the web and some of the finer intricacies.
