I wanted to introduce the first of what I hope will be several Chrome Experiments (prediction: all HTML5, and all music-related). It’s called Tito, and you can play with it here.
What is it? It’s an early prototype for a musical instrument that uses a bouncing ball gravity model to trigger and manipulate audio samples. It’s an instrument that designed to be played as chord accompaniment for a lead instrument. You “play” the instrument by Â clicking the chord buttons on the right. Note for music geeks: 7ths and Dim notes are provided with each chord, but muted by default. Click on the notes at the bottom of the bouncing ball graphs to enable them.
Requirements: Tito requires Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. Also, Tito requires Flash as the audio portion is still being done in Flash (Currently Firefox 4 is the only browser to have an HTML5 spec for audio data, alas.)
Here are the new features I’m working on for the next version:
- Ability to choose between multiple different sample sets.
- Option to retrigger all the balls on each chord change.
- Ability to position falling balls by clicking on them and letting go.Â Done! 10/21/10.
- Sliders for changing gravity settings.
- And finally, whatever features you want. @reply me on twitter (@dhilowitz).
Ability to mute specific balls.Â Done! 10/19/2010. Ability to change chords.Done! 10/1/2010.
Oh My God!! It is amazing and inspiring!!
Thanks for creating this wonderful music application!
It drive me think a lot on music theory

[…] like me, you have a ton of audio files on your hard drive. When Iâ€™m working on music (or an audio synthesis project), I will export out songs that Iâ€™m working on in one piece of software in order to import them […]

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

It’s important to keep our transportation infrastructure up to speed.
The most basic form of this is the humble sound
card built into most computers. The chances are that if you actually
took the time to look into what happens in a tattoo parlour then you would be quite surprised at how relaxed, painless and friendly it truly is.
