Newbie here with my first Sonic Pi jam

Relatively new to the world of synths and really new to Sonic Pi. I’m a developer by day and I like to mess around with music with my limited knowledge of it. Combining the two seemed like a lot of fun.

I put together a short little jam using an IK Multimedia Uno Synth and a Roland T-8:

Lots of fun, see a lot of possibilities with Sonic Pi.

Here’s the code I used. Would love any constructive feedback (I really don’t know what I’m doing yet!)

live_loop :t8 do ; use_bpm 120
  
  thechordsT8 = (ring :F2, :Eb2, :Ab2, :Bb2).tick
  
  basschords = (ring :F2, :f2, :f2, :eb2).look
  mood = (ring :minor, :major, :minor, :major).look
  
  16.times do
       midi octs(basschords, 1).look, sustain: 0.15, channel: 1
    sleep 0.25
  end
end


live_loop :drums do ; tick ; use_bpm 120
  midi  36, channel:10
  sleep 1
end

live_loop :snare do ; tick ; use_bpm 120
  sync  :drums
  midi  38, channel:10
  sleep 1
end

live_loop :drums2 do ; tick ; use_bpm 120
  midi 42,channel:10
  sleep 0.25
end

I’m also new, and I have a coding background rather than a music one. I don’t really have any useful feedback, but if there is something you want to achieve I could help you do it.

I don’t own any midi instruments. Make that, I don’t own any instruments. That might change some point over the next 12 months.
