For this assignment I decided on making some sort of a drum pad with nature sounds. I want to have both ambient and sample based sounds on the pad. I sketched out an example of how I wanted it to look:
So there will be 5 different images which all would have their unique sound. The ones on the left side are ambient sounds, which will mute/unmute a playlist that will run in a loop. The bird and the frog will play a short sample of a sound, from a playlist of multiple sounds for that object. I also wanted to add visualization, and animation with position and fading, but no keyframes. Here is a basic sketch of the MAX structure:
I also want to make basic drumsticks with conductive tips, so it feels like you are playing an instrument, rather than just touching a piece of paper.
