Augmented human creativity through natural selection.

Portable Evolution!

mendeltone_da_promo_graphicWe’ve taken a little vacation from our usual development agenda…just enough time to bring you our first mobile app:  MendelTone. For about about the price of a cup of coffee, you can now evolve virtual modular synth patches on the go.

This new app is much more than just a miniature version of Trilobite.  Our new mobile virtual synthesizer and evolution engine allow you to evolve new patch populations instantly, and hear the results in real time. The user interface features both patch breeding and live performance panels.

If you use an Android phone, you can buy your copy now at the Google Play Store. Please make sure to rate MendelTone to help us raise visibility and encourage future updates and new applications. Favorable reviews are always nice 😉

Version 1.4 is a maintenance version with a number of performance enhancements and embedded debugging features.  If you are a Trilobite 1.3 user, we highly recommend that you upgrade now.

This bank is a collection of patches for Trilobite Pro versions featuring the Sound Color module. Patches were authored and/or evolved at Darwin Arts, with generous contributions from Doug Lynner and Later Days.

The following track uses just a few of the patches included:

The Sound Color Module is based largely on the work and advice of Professor Wayne Slawson (See his book, Sound Color), this module is a human vocal formant sound coloration filter with optional vocal tone generator. All of the patches in this bank will have vocal attributes in some form.
