Creating beat variations using Mutateful




Hey everyone, Knut from Tromsø/Norway here. Thanks for this site, it seems like a nice place for diverse discussions on music production, live coding and related projects!

I'd like to share a project I've been working on for the last couple of years called Mutateful. It's an extension for Live that enables live coding directly in Live's session view. Here's a short video I made demonstrating a few Mutateful commands and how they can be used in the context of an actual track. Also note that I'm using the term live coding in a loose sense here, so I'm not building the whole track using code (although that would mostly be possible to do as well), but I'm using it more as a way of generating additional ideas/patterns for my tracks and combining them with a more linear sequencing workflow.

Mutateful itself can be found here:
The current version only supports Live 10 and below, but I will be releasing a new beta soon with support for Live 11.
