The application is a UI for creating layouts for songs, sending API requests to make the song, and showing a playlist of music. (It uses some ports for 1 dependency, WaveSurfer.js, for rendering a waveform and triggering playback. Playback state is managed by Elm).
If you are curious to see Elm in production this is for you; or if you were like me and just wanted to see examples of how people use it in real life.
If you are eager to write some Elm code and want a project to work on then please be my guest
Pull Requests are welcome and I’m happy to receive issues/features/bug reports via GitHub.
elm-chords and elm-music-theory, they really caught my attention and am excited to explore them more.
song-designer is calling a backend service (running SuperCollider) for its audio synthesis. It’s cool to see WebAudio API in action for elm-audio.
The ideal world has as much audio playback and wavefrom illustration managed by Elm too; so there exists a possible future song-designer + elm-audio, and elm-chords to visualize a lead sheet for the generated music.
I would also like to explore Elm and Web Audio API. So far I found this project elm-web-audio – although it seems abandoned. I thought about forking it and improving it, but that’s for later, as I’m still learning Elm.
While on the topic: I was thinking of expanding it, to natively work with synthesis, looping, and sampling. That would be my “desert island I’d love to maintain” Elm project if I manage to get good enough.
Thanks again for sharing your amazing code and sorry for hijacking this thread a little.
