In the same vain as Ableton’s ‘Learning Music’ free website course for creating music through online sequencers, this second course focusses entirely on synthesizers or synths for short. It allows manipulation of amplitude pitch, and then a gradually increasing range of filters, plug ins and digital elements such as brightness, movement or samples. As the earlier course, this is a great hands-on grounding in digital music making.
Incredibox takes a fairly unusual approach to web based sequencing, by allowing students to choose icons as t-shirts for each animated character that initiate the vocal loop that that character sings. A range of vocal parts can be combined, with beats, effects, melodies and other voice sounds, a range of performances can be continually rearranged by muting and swapping t-shirts as they sing. A range of styles can be chosen; from hip hop and pop to Japanese or Indian music. The site gamifies the experience by offering new sounds and genre choices the more you play, as well as random mode. Incredibox is a lot of fun and very accessible.
