Interactive MP3 player, how can I find or develop one?
Posted on 2011-09-02
I'm trying to find an MP3 player or codec (not sure) that will do the following:
1. Must start MP3's either at the same time, or using some kind of signaling from a master track, start at a given time.
2. Must be able to play multiple MP3's in a mix.
3. Good to have: Some kind of interactivity so that the user can mix the MP3's.
This is not a music making software like Acid, or Fruity Loops, although maybe that would work.
It should be as easy to use as a regular player, except the user can either choose from mix templates, or create a template and save that.
Other features would be to base the mix on feedback from the user other than interacting with an interface, for example, a heartbeat, or audio input etc.
(Probably the ability to control this via MIDI would work).
I am a VB.NET programmer, but I don't know much about creating audio applications.
One of my goals is to become a recording artist or producer that creates ambient music mixes in this multi-track MP3 format so that people can download or by my music. This would be suitable for relaxation, semi-ambient dynamic music to listen to while working or studying (that's not too distracting) spoken word instruction, or any kind of audio that needs to be triggered. This seems like a fairly simple concept except the interface part which might be more complicated. I knwo the technology exists, but it seems nobody has attempted this.
