Screen shots from firefly

Firefly was the second assignment due this semester for Live Audio Vision. Its built on a random access sampler which you feed by dropping a folder onto a drop zone. I wanted it to be easily to use and relatively rewarding, even if you don't know much about whats happening.

On its "automatic" mode, Firefly will randomly choose files, loop points, playback speeds and the rate at which it chooses samples. On its not automatic mode, you can do it all yourself, including scrubbing audio and re sizing loop points.

The output of this is then sent to an oscilloscope type thing, which is then mapped onto openGl shapes.

Hopefully some video to follow soon (I'm having some trouble getting the final window to render to a video matrix that jitter will be able to understand - any suggestions?)
