DIN Is Noise is a software musical instrument for Mac OS X, Windows and GNU/Linux.
Musicians can use Bezier curves to draw and sculpt waveforms, create beats and modulation patterns, and create delay feedback and volume patterns. They can also create an unlimited number of drones on any microtone, sculpt their timbre in realtime, orbit drones around other drones, create drone meshes, launch drones like rockets, let them fall under virtual gravity and bounce back or die when they hit the bottom of the Microtonal Keyboard.
DIN Is Noise also includes 12 geometry to sound plugins that can make waveforms, envelopes and modulation patterns from regular/star polygons, rose curves, spirals, lissajous and superformula curves. Plugins also exist to make fractal waveforms, morph waveforms into each other, transform maps of 245 countries into waveforms and turn the unique bit pattern of any printable character, number or colour into unique waveforms, shapeforms, envelopes or modulation patterns.
You can also play DIN like a traditional bowed instrument (e.g., Cello, Sarangi) with a suitable mouse. Accurate Glissando, vibrato & tremolo is possible. A new instrument called Mondrian inspired by the works of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian helps musicians launch virtual balls that bounce off walls and trigger notes or microtones.
Musicians can save the sounds they are making into sample accurate uncompressed .WAV files. DIN also supports full-screen modes, MIDI note on/off and can be extended by writing Tcl scripts.
