Jumping-off Point: Skippy Piano

This code brings in an external piano sample loop and restructures it into something glitch-tastic!

Since this code relies on an external sample, you will either need to supply a loop-able piano sample of your own, or grab the exact one I used for free over here. You will also have to change the sample’s path directory in the code to match the location in which your sample is found on your computer.

Check on Sonic Pi Scripts for more jumping-off points.

#LOAD IN SAMPLE LIBRARIES
#Change to your own sample folder path:

#LEVELS
#Set these to 0 if I want to mute a track and to 1 if you want it to play. Can also set in between for volume control.
